Omnilux Light Therapy

Acne FAQs

What is OmniluxTM light therapy for acne?
Omnilux blue™ is a light source that is specially tuned to activate natural chemicals found in the bacteria that cause skin redness in acne. When stimulated, these chemicals destroy the bacteria. Omnilux revive™ is used in combination with Omnilux blue™. Omnilux revive™ stimulates cells in your body that help with the healing process and reduce the inflammation surrounding the acne lesion.


How safe is the treatment?
Omnilux blue™ and Omnilux revive™ are safe and harmless to your skin and generate no heat. The light works naturally with your body to promote the healing response. The only safety measure is to wear goggles to protect your eyes from the light.


What results can be expected from a series of treatments?
Optimum results will be seen between 4-8 weeks after treatment. The light stimulates natural processes that continue after the treatment has stopped. Whilst studies have shown complete clearance of lesions, on average you should expect 70% of lesions to clear when using blue light alone and over 80% when using blue and red light together. We suggest that the treatment is used in conjunction with a preparation such as salicylic acid. Your advisor can discuss this combination treatment with you.

Are there any side effects from the treatments?

No. There have been no reported adverse side effects like redness or irritation from the treatment, and the light does not damage skin in any way.


Is it painful?
Not at all because there’s no heat involved, there’s no pain!


What actually happens during the treatment?
You will have to remove any makeup or sunblock before the treatment and you will also be asked to wear safety goggles. The light will then be positioned close to your face and you will be treated for 20 minutes. After that you’re free to go home.

The treatment course is usually 8 light treatments. Dependent upon your type of acne, you may be advised to use a face wash and a gel containing salicylic acid. These are both available from the Omnilux™ range of products and will help with the treatment.


Omnilux™ light therapy is the clear choice for acne

  • Because there is no heat involved, there’s no pain!
  • Eradicates the bacterium that causes acne through natural processes, so it won’t harm your skin
  • Promotes your body’s natural healing response so the treatment continues long after the light has been switched off
  • Highly effective, no side effects, no irritation
  • Quick and simple

Skin Rejuvenation FAQs

Pure light...pure science

At Omnilux™ we strive to understand how light therapy works in synergy with our bodies’ own natural mechanisms.

As we grow older, the cells that manufacture the skins supportive structures begin to slow down. Environmental damage from the suns rays speed up this process and produce free radicals that damage the skin and the cells that synthesize collagen and elastin.

Using a combination of different lights delivered at different times we are able to stimulate these cells that help counteract the effects of aging.
 
Unlike some anti-aging treatments that work as a result of the body's response to damage, Omnilux stimulates natural processes to rejuvenate the skin.

Rejuvenating Tired Skin
At Omnilux™ we have developed 2 different light sources, Omnilux plus™ and Omnilux revive™ that work on their own or synergistically.

What is Omnilux™ light therapy?
Omnilux™ uses a combination of pure, visible red and infra red light to stimulate the deeper skin tissue, leading to a softening of fine lines, improved skin tone and super smooth skin.

How does it work?
Omnilux™ light therapy works with the body's own natural processes to counteract the effects of aging. The different lights target specific cells, which are responsible for the synthesis and repair of the skins supportive structure.

What will I see?
In an independent study over 80% of subjects reported a softening of fine lines after treatment and 75% reported improvement in skin softness and smoothness.

Is it safe?
The scientifically designed light source does not have harmful UVA or UVB. You will experience a feeling of relaxation and well-being during and after the treatment. The treatment is not painful, there are no injections involved and there's no patient downtime. Studies have shown that the majority of clients find the treatment relaxing

How many treatments are needed?
This depends upon your individual treatment regime. Your aesthetician will advise you on how many treatments may be suitable for your particular needs.

How long will the treatment take?
Your first treatment will take 45 minutes, allowing for your initial consultation. Ongoing treatments will typically be 30-minute appointments, during which the light is administered for 20 minutes.

How long does it take to recover?
There is no need for recovery time, and makeup can be re-applied immediately after treatment.

Will the results be seen straight away?
This depends upon the treatment options used. The initial effects you will see are a clearer, brighter and smoother complexion. After the course of treatments have finished you will still see an improvement in tone, clarity and skin smoothness. You will also see softening of your fine lines and wrinkles.

How long will the results last?
This will vary according to skin type and lifestyle and whether you have combined Omnilux™ with other treatments. However, when you have completed your course, it is usually recommended that you have one maintenance treatment on a 4-6 week basis, as this will prolong the results.

Who is Omnilux light therapy suitable for?
This is a very effective treatment for both men and women of any age. It is non-invasive and easy to perform.

Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) FAQs

Reducing Fine Lines and Wrinkles using photodynamic photorejuvenation

Simple, effective treatment with Omnilux revive™
Omnilux™ has developed a new and exciting therapy for the softening of fine lines and wrinkles and super smooth skin.

Using Omnilux™ light and a naturally occurring substance, applied to the skin topically as a cream, we are able to offer a unique safe and effective photofacial treatment.

What results can be expected from a series of treatments?
The number of treatments will depend upon your skin type. Your clinician will advise you on the best course of treatments for you. However, you will see a change in your skin texture and fine lines and wrinkles and pigmentation.

How does the treatment work?
The Omnilux™ light and cream react together stimulating the body’s own repair mechanisms to improve skin tone and lay down new collagen. This is not a new phenomenon as Omnilux™ users have seen excellent cosmetic results for years when combining the cream and light together for the treatment of skin cancers.

Are there any side effects from the treatments?
The tailored treatment regimes give valuable side effects. Your clinician will be able to recommend which regime will be suitable for your skin type. You may experience some pain during the treatment, which can be treated with cool air or analgesia and your skin will be red after treatment. The severity of the redness will be dependent on the protocol suggested by your clinician. This is normal and all that is asked is that you wear sunblock during the first couple of days and avoid direct and indirect sunlight.

What actually happens during the treatment?
Firstly, your skin will be prepared by using either an exfoliate or microdermabrasion. The cream will then be applied to your face and left on for between 30 minutes to 3 hours. After the contact time any excess cream will be wiped away and the area will be exposed to Omnilux revive. Dependent on your skin type, the treatment may be repeated 14 days later.
