From a reader in May 2005:
As you may remember, i told you i would let you know how i made out in seeing the aurora and its presentation.
What i liked:
It has a bigger head so its one pulse compared to four of lightsheer.
The hair does not shed for three weeks so appointments are six weeks apart for face and eight for body. So, sales wise this is good.
There is a safety mechanism to protect the skin so it doesn’t pulse unless the contact is there. The hand part is lighter too.
The sales rep said there is no documentation on lasers penetrating past four mm. Becuase this has the radio frequency along with IPL it can penetrate30-40% more. (Im just saying what he said)
What i don’t care for.
You have to pull the trigger with every pulse as opposed to the diode and the foot petal and just keeping your finger on it.
Now, the radio frequency pretty much stays the same when treating. Its the IPL that you adjust.
I spoke to some people who have used it. One from your forum who said it doesn’t work at all. And i spoke to a nurse who has three here in Toronto. She actually prefers it over the diode because the limitations are less.
Here in Canada due to different regulations (or should i say, no regulations on LHR), we can buy a unit which is exactly like the aurora only doesn’t have attachments. With the aurora you can have the attachment that does facial rejuvination. ( I think that is better left with a surgeon or dr. myself) So, we can buy a pitanga in Canadian funds instead of the Aurora which is in US funds.
Hope this has been helpful. Im still a bit nervous and sure hope i made the right choice!!
