breast awareness light – breast examination device

How to use your Fairylight

1
Find a room in the house where you can turn off the lights and make it as dark as possible. The darker the room, the easier it is to use Fairylight™ Breast Analyser. It is good to be able to see yourself in a mirror as you use the product – so make sure there is one in the room that you can see. Make yourself comfortable – sitting or standing are both fine.

2
Most women find it more comfortable to use a lubricant, which allows the lens to slide across the skin more easily. Apply the lubricant liberally over the entire breast. You will be able to wipe off any excess after you have finished the examination. Only use water-based lubricants with Fairylight™ Breast Analyser. Oil-based lubricants (such as baby oil or petroleum jelly) may damage your Fairylight™ Breast Analyser.
Do not use a lubricant if you are allergic to any of the ingredients.

Turn off the lights and wait for a couple of minutes to allow your eyes to get used to the dark. Turn on your Fairylight™ Breast Analyser. It will switch on at a low light level so as not to dazzle you. The light will increase to full power only when it is in contact with your skin.
Hold the Fairylight™ Breast Analyser underneath one of your breasts and push it firmly against the skin. If you have a good light seal there will be no significant escape of light from under the breast and the breast itself will suddenly appear brighter. The dark lines are veins and other blood vessels in silhouette.

There are four different brightness settings. Use the top button on your Fairylight™ Breast Analyser to change the brightness level. Generally larger or firmer breasts will require a higher brightness setting. Try all the brightness settings until you find the setting that is right for you. If the light is too low then you will not be able to see the veins in your breast. If it is too high you won’t be able to see the fine details.

Slowly move Fairylight™ Breast Analyser around and you will be able to see other parts of your breast. You should continue to do this until you have seen as much as you can.
Use your other hand to hold your breast as you move Fairylight™ Breast Analyser around. This will help you keep the lens pressed firmly against the skin. As you move around you may find it easier to switch hands as you change position.

The breast tissue goes right around under the arms and high up on the chest toward your shoulder – so be sure to look here as well. By either looking down on your breast or at the reflection in the mirror you will get a good view of all these areas. Take time to check all areas of your breast, including the area just behind the nipple.
There is no set way to complete the examination. There is quite a variation in breast shapes and sizes and you know yourself best. Just make sure that you have a good look around.

When you have finished looking at one breast you should then look at the other. Once again you may find it easier to do this if you switch hands and hold your Fairylight™ Breast Analyser with the other hand to continue the examination.

The Light
Fairylight™ Breast Analyser uses touch sensor technology to ensure that the light is only at full power when the lens is in contact with your skin. The touch sensor needs time to reset itself when you switch Fairylight™ Breast Analyser on, so wait for a couple of seconds before placing it against your skin.

Do not look directly into Fairylight™ Breast Analyser when it is at any of its bright settings. This will not cause any permanent damage, but may cause a temporary dazzling effect.

Fairylight™ Breast Analyser emits light at a visible wavelength. This is completely safe and will not cause any damage to your skin or breast tissue.

Due to the power of the light, Fairylight™ Breast Analyser will become slightly warm during usage. This is not a cause for concern.
