OmniLux™ Blue and Red Light treatments can effectively help kill acne causing bacteria, and reduce inflammation with no downtime.
How does OmniLux work?
Light therapy targets specific cells which are responsible for the synthesis and repair of the skin’s supportive structures, leading to a softening of fine lines and improved skin tone.
What can OmniLux treat?
This treatment is beneficial and effective for both men and women of all ages and skin types.
Acne is one for the world’s most common skin conditions and results from obstruction, bacterial colonisation and inflammation of the sebaceous follicles.
One of the key bacteria responsible for the inflammation Propionibacterium acnes or P.acnes, produces natural chemicals called porphyrins, which are sensitive to light at different wavelengths.
When stimulated these chemicals will neutralise the bacteria. With no bacteria present inflammation will subside. Furthermore, the action of light on the sebaceous glands produces an environment that is inhibitory to the growth of P. acnes.
- Effective and pain free
- No sebaceous gland damage
- Maximum efficiency seen when combined with an anti comedonal preparation.
What is an OmniLux session like?
Omnilux light therapy is a procedure that is completely painless. Wearing protective goggles, the light therapy session will consist of applying the light above the treatment areas, so that the wavelengths can penetrate directly into the dermal layers. You will feel a sensation of warmth, without feeling any discomfort.
Most treatment sessions last about 20 minutes and you will be able to return to your daily routine immediately.
What results can be expected from OmniLux?
Unlike other treatments, where the effects are short lived, OMNILUX™ Light Therapy stimulates natural cellular processes that rejuvenate and repair the skin. Thus, the results you see will continue to improve for up to 4 to 6 months after the light treatment.
The initial effects you will see are a clearer, brighter and smoother complexion. After the course of treatments you will begin to notice an improvement in tone, clarity and texture.
This depends upon your individual treatment régime, but 9 OMNILUX™ sessions closely together (weekly or bi-weekly) show excellent results both immediately and longer term.
