Omnilux Frequently asked questions

How does this treatment work?

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

Using Omnilux™ we are able to target specific cells in order to stimulate deeper skin tissue leading to a softening of fine lines, improved skin tone and super smooth skin. Increased blood flow also helps aid greater tissue oxygenation and detoxification.

How long does the treatment take and how many sessions will I need?

Your first treatment will take 45 minutes however ongoing treatments will typically be 30 minute appointments, twice per week during which time light is administered for 20 minutes.

People with different skin types will benefit from differing treatment regimes therefore the amount of sessions required depends upon your individual treatment regime as recommended by your cosmetic doctor or medical aesthetician.

Is this treatment painful?

The treatment is safe, pain free and non-invasive and there is no recovery time. Make-up may be applied immediately afterwards.

Are there any possible side effects?

There have been no reported side effects. The scientifically designed light source does not contain harmful UVA or UVB and therefore cannot damage your skin. You will experience a feeling of relaxation and well-being during and after the treatment.

How long will the results last?

This will vary according to skin type and lifestyle and whether you have combined Omnilux™ with other treatments. Generally however, following a course of treatments you can expect to see an overall improvement in tone, clarity and skin smoothness as well as softening of fine lines and wrinkles.

91% of subjects in trials reported an improvement in their skin using Omnilux Revive™ alone, 60% reported a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles and softer and smoother skin and 55% showed an improvement in skin firmness. Many also noticed an overall lifting and hydrating effect.

It should be noted that the results you see will continue to improve for up to 4 – 6 months after the course of treatment because Omnilux Revive™ light therapy continues to stimulate natural cellular processes that rejuvenate the skin.

Monthly maintenance visits are recommended to maintain results.

Omnilux Revive™ FAQ’s

What to expect after the treatment?

Skin is refreshed and healthier, with a lovely glow. Stimulation of the collagen-producing cells takes place causing the skin’s foundation to be strengthened.

A course of Omnilux ™ treatments gives the best results, and the effects can continue after the course for several weeks-months. A single Omnilux™ treatment immediately after your injectable treatment helps improve recovery and maximises the results of your treatment.

How long will the treatment last?

For maximum skin benefits and long-lasting results, a course of 7-10 treatments over 3-5 weeks is recommended. A single booster treatment every 4-6 weeks can help maintain results.

Does the treatment hurt?

No. It is completely painless, lying under a bright red light, and once you get used to the light it is often very relaxing.

Is it safe?

Treatment is safe and effective for all skin types and colours

How long does the procedure take?

The whole procedure takes up to 30 minutes. Your skin will be cleansed before the light treatment and afterwards moisturisers and sunblock are applied.

How quickly does it work?

Although you may see improvements during the course of treatments, optimum results will be seen 8-12 weeks after treatment, because the natural processes of healing and rejuvenation, stimulated by the light therapy, continue to work for this length of time.

Omnilux Blue™ Light for Acne FAQ’s

Omnilux Blue™ has proved revolutionary in the fight against acne. The bacteria that cause acne produce chemicals that are sensitive to light. Omnilux Blue™ works to stop the spread of these bacteria by delivering a constant blue light that penetrates deep into the layers of the skin. This naturally stimulates the body to produce chemicals that destroy the bacteria. Combining Omnilux Blue™ with Omnilux Revive™ will enhance its effectiveness. Omnilux Revive™ reduces inflammation, thereby assisting in the healing process during the course of blue light therapy.

What to expect after the treatment?

Your skin looks and feels calmer and less irritated.

How long will the treatment last?

For maximum skin benefits and long-lasting results, a course of 10 treatments over 5 weeks is recommended, with a booster treatment every 4-6 weeks.

Does the treatment hurt?

No. It is completely painless. Many people find it very relaxing.

Is it safe?

Treatment is safe and effective for all skin types and colours.

How long does the procedure take?

The procedure takes 30 minutes.

How quickly does it work?

Optimum results will be seen 8-12 weeks after treatment, because the natural processes of controlling bacteria and healing, stimulated by the light therapy, continue to work for a length of time following the treatments. Research shows an average of around a 70% reduction in acne lesions 12 weeks after a course of treatments.

Use Omnilux Blue™ with:

•Peels – to brighten the skin and remove the dead layer of skin which can block pores and contribute to acne.

•Omnilux Revive™ – to reduce inflammation and redness.

•Medical Grade Skin Care – to improve and maintain results.
