Q: What are the differences between Miramate Flash and Ray Gun?
A: The wavelength band of UV light produced by Flash is broader. The light from Flash appears to be white. Even though a lot of energy of Flash is going into VUV, there is still a lot of energy in visible light spectrum. The VUV light emitted from Ray Gun has a much narrower bandwidth and is therefore safer.
Flash delivers strong bursts of ultraviolet. Ray gun deliveries a continuous stream of VUV at a high frequency. More VUV is delivered safer.
In angle mode, Ray Gun can produce a large amount of ozone, nitric oxide, as well as localized heat. All these factors combine to treat skin conditions much more effectively than contact mode alone.
Ray Gun forms a microscopic secondary ionization layer between the gas tube and the target skin. Current flows between the tube and the skin. You can increase this current by placing an earthing pad on the opposite side of the target area. This increases the amount of ozone and nitric oxide, and more importantly, allows pathogen-disabling compounds to travel deeper into the body to reach problem areas, without harming healthy cells.
Q: How long and how often to use Ray Gun?
A: It is recommended to use Ray Gun for 2 minutes (no more than 5 minutes) on each lesion area once or twice a day.
Q: Which parts of the body can it be used for? Can we use it on broken skin and ulcerated skin?
A: All body parts except directly on the eyes. Yes.
Q: Who Should Not Use Ray Gun?
A: Do not use if you are pregnant, trying to become pregnant (conceiving) or breast-feeding.
Do not use if you have epilepsy or light-induced seizures or migraines.
Do not use if you have a disease related to photo-sensitivity or are taking medication that makes the skin more sensitive to light.
Wear the supplied glasses during use. Do not look at the light directly or use Ray Gun for your eyes.
Don’t share Ray Gun if you have a contagious skin disease.
Q: Is It Safe to Use Ray Gun for Animals and Plants?
A: Yes. It is safe to use Ray Gun for animals and plants.
Q: Is Ray gun okay to use on animal’s skin, and if so, would it penetrate through fur?
A: Ray Gun can be used on animal’s skin, it is very safe. It is best to choose a location that does not have too much fur. If necessary, remove excess fur with a razor.
Q: Is Ray Gun safe? Are there any side effects?
A: Yes, it is safe. No side effects.
Q: I am wondering about the ozone emitted from using Ray Gun. Any safety issues?
A: Ozone contributes to healing. Ray Gun creates proper ozone to help skin issues safely and effectively.
Q: How long does it take to see any effect?
A: Generally it is immediate. Blemishes will fade straight away. Sometimes it will take multiple treatments.
Q: Are the treatment results of it long-lasting? Will symptoms return after stopping treatment?
A: Yes. No.
Q: Can I feel anything during treatment?
Q: Can we use it together with other MiraMate products?
Q: I was just using my Ray Gun and the barrel began to feel very warm. Is it normal?
A: It is normal. The barrel of Ray Gun may get hot after a long time of use. It’s similar to a hairdryer. Both are designed to handle the heat without any problem. We wanted the unit to be quiet in operation, and that’s why we didn’t use a fan for cooling. It does have cooling holes though.
Q: If lotion/cream/body oil was applied the night before (or perhaps 8+ hours prior to use), would the area have to be wiped off with alcohol for Ray Gun to be effective?
A: It is best to still wash the problematic area before applying Ray Gun.
Personally, I would wash the area of the body to be treated so that no other oils or creams are left on the body. Once the treatment has been completed, then you can apply any oils, lotions or creams on the body area.
Q: Can we use Ray Gun to help skin problems on the neck? Where to place the earthing pad?
A: Yes, you can help skin problems on the neck with Ray Gun. Pads can earth your body anywhere you place. It’s just better when you place it closer to your treatment area. It is worth noting that we do not recommend placing the earthing pad near the heart or head. For example, you can place a pad on the left shoulder or the left side of the neck if you need to treat skin issues on the right side of the neck.
Q: Regarding the 20 min wait period (for lotions) after treatment with Ray Gun, should water be avoided as well? For example, applying frequency imprinted water on the treated areas?
A: You can apply imprinted water on the treated areas after using Ray Gun. Water is very moderate, without causing irritation. It will also not cancel the ozone and nitric oxide benefits.
Q: Do we need to remove the gas tube of Ray Gun each time we have used it? And how do you treat large areas for example eczema?
A: No, you do not need to remove the gas tube each time. To treat large areas, you can place the tube directly on the problem area and move the tube slowly.
Q: Are the safety glasses for Flash and Ray Gun interchangeable?
A: Yes, the safety glasses for Flash and Ray Gun are interchangeable.
Q: Is it ok to use Ray Gun during a rife contact treatment?
A: We do not recommend using Ray Gun during contact treatment. Ray Gun forms a microscopic secondary ionization layer between the gas tube and the target skin. Current flows between the tube and the target. Spooky2 contact may affect the current and reduce the therapeutic effect of Ray Gun.
Q: I noticed when I used Ray Gun on my face for a scratch that it smelled like metal. Can I use Ray Gun near my face if I have mercury amalgam fillings?
A: Even if you have mercury amalgam fillings, you can use Ray Gun near your face. It is the smell of ozone, which also contributes to the healing.
Q: Is it normal to see the current between Ray Gun tube and skin when lifting the bulb slightly away from the skin?
A: Yes, it is normal. According to our test, it will be more powerful if you keep a tiny gap between Ray Gun tube and skin. However, some people might have a tingling feeling. For safety, we recommend using Ray Gun to touch the skin for treatment.
Q: Is it normal that whenever the trigger is depressed, Ray Gun makes a loud, high pitched noise?
A: It is normal to hear the sound during the operation with Ray Gun.
Q: There are areas I want to treat near the orbital bone and between the brows or nose bridge. The glasses make it impossible to reach these areas. What should I do to protect my eyes from VUV light?
A: You can close your eyes if you need to use Ray Gun for areas around the eyes.
Q: Will Ray Gun help with Staph Aureus?
A: Yes. Ray Gun can kill the Staph Aureus on the skin.
Q: Can Ray Gun be used on the scalp to get rid of dandruff ( seborrheic dermatitis)?
A: Ray gun works the best for pathogen-related problems. If your dandruff is caused by pathogens, then yes.
Q: Can the ray gun be used on shingles rash? If so, which intensity? If it’s near eyes, can you use the ray gun if eyes are closed?
A: The shingles rash is caused by the varicella-zoster virus. You can use Ray Gun to manage the symptoms of shingles. It is recommended to use Ray Gun for 2 minutes (no more than 5 minutes) on each lesion area once or twice a day. To help rash near the eyes, you can close your eyes and use Ray Gun in contact mode.
