Omnilux is a pioneer in the use of LED or light emitting diode technology for aesthetic and dermatology treatments and is regarded as the gold standard, most powerful, most researched, and most trusted brand of phototherapy systems. It is for this reason that Jan Birch, dermatology specialist consultant nurse has chosen to use it at the Blemish Clinic.
The light emitted from the LEDs, as individual wavelengths, or colours of light, has been proven to stimulate certain repair cells within the body, improve blood flow, clear acne-causing bacteria, and help with the penetration and activation of skincare products applied to the skin. Omnilux Light Therapy is used in the treatment of acne, skin rejuvenation, wound healing, and can be used in combination with special light sensitive topical agents as a treatment called Photodynamic Therapy (PDT) that is used to target more complex dermatology concerns including cancerous and pre-cancerous skin lesions.
Acne and acne scarring, sun damage, pigmentation problems, dyschromia, ageing, skin rejuvenation, fine lines and wrinkles, dull complexion, scarring and wound healing.
Omnilux delivers clinically-proven wavelengths of monochromatic or single colour light (red, blue, or infrared) via a treatment head lined with LED lights to stimulate specific cells within the body – resulting in a reduction in wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, patchy pigmentation of the skin, and acne.
Omnilux Light Therapy has also been proven to stimulate blood flow for wound healing and certain light from the Omnilux system has been shown to enhance cellular metabolism and cell permeability which allows active medical-grade ingredients placed on the skin to penetrate deeper and to speed up the activation of those ingredients within the skin.
It is also great to combine with other in-clinic treatments, both before and after another procedure to help pre-condition the skin, speed up healing, and reduce any downtime to enhance the results achieved with other aesthetic treatments.
Omnilux Light Therapy using red, blue, and infrared LED light can be used as a treatment tool for skin conditions and traumas including:
It can also be used in the management of rosacea to reduce symptoms. The anti-inflammatory effects of the Omnilux Light Therapy can produce prolonged remissions from rosacea because the LED light reduces redness and generally enhances the overall facial appearance for rosacea sufferers.
Different people react in different ways, depending on their age and the condition of their skin, so a bespoke treatment programme will be discussed with you in consultation with our skin experts.
A course of Omnilux red light therapy for skin rejuvenation comes as recommended in a package of 12 treatments, 2-3 times per week.
Blue and red light combined for acne treatment is available as a package of 10 treatments, to be used twice per week.
Top up or maintenance treatment can then be scheduled as required, depending on your underlying skin concern.
Omnilux Light Therapy is suitable for men and women of all skin types and colours.
If you suffer from mild to moderate inflammatory acne, have anti-ageing concerns or are troubled by pigmentation, then we can treat these with LED light, either on its own or in combination with other skin treatments.
A full medical history will be taken during your consultation with our dermatology specialist consultant nurse who has a specialist interest in photobiology and decades of experience in the study and use of LED light therapy.
If you have a sensitivity to light, such as epilepsy or are taking medicine that causes photosensitivity (e.g., the antibiotic Tetracycline or certain steroids) then you will not be suitable for light therapy and we will suggest alternative treatments.
If you are pregnant or breast feeding, you will be advised to wait until after this time before commencing LED light therapy.
Patients who have Omnilux Light Therapy often report treatment as very relaxing and warm, and some have fallen asleep during treatment. It is not painful because no heat is generated from the procedure so it cannot burn.
Omnilux Light Therapy is a very safe procedure. You will be asked to wear special protective eyewear during treatment to protect your eyes from the bright light.
The treatment has numerous clearances and approvals by the American FDA and the Australian TGA, as well as UK and European authorities.
This LED light therapy simply stimulates the cells in the body to promote its own healing.
We recommend a course of Omnilux LED light treatments to address most skin concerns, although you can see a result after one treatment in terms of skin freshness.
Clinically trials have shown that Omnilux can produce a 75% improvement in skin smoothness and a statistically significant reduction in wrinkles around the eyes. Patients also report lighter and brighter skin, reduced dyschromia, and overall texture improvement on the face.
Clinical studies also show evidence of up to 81% clearance of inflammatory acne lesions 12 weeks after completion of a course of light therapy.
Treatment with Omnilux Light Therapy has been proven to show that several treatment sessions, approximately 2-3 per week, spread over a 4-week period are recommended to accelerate the visible results and cell stimulation required for rejuvenation, wound healing, and the clearance of acne-causing bacteria and inflammatory lesions.
Once your initial results have been reached, we look to maintaining those results longer term with regular follow-up appointments and treatments every 4-6 weeks, if required and dependent on the primary reason for your treatment.
We believe in being transparent with our prices and want you to be fully aware and comfortable with the cost of your treatment. A full list of our prices can be found here. We will always agree a final price with you though before treatment commences.
LED light therapy with Omnilux can be used as a stand-alone or combined treatment for anti-ageing, wrinkle reduction and skin rejuvenation, but also to boost collagen production, accelerate wound healing, and kill the bacteria that causes acne.
Omnilux has a treatment head lined with LED lights that deliver clinically proven wavelengths of single colour light (red, blue, or infrared) to your face or body to reduce inflammation and stimulate the healing and regenerating cells within the body to improve blood circulation and increase new collagen production. Blue light also has anti-bacterial effects for acne treatment.
Results include improved complexion, fresher looking skin, a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, and improvement in pigmentation and sun damage. A significant reduction or clearance of inflammatory acne can also be achieved with Omnilux Light Therapy.
Each treatment with Omnilux takes approximately 20 minutes. We usually recommend a course of treatments spaced over several weeks.
Treatment with LED lights is completely pain free, you will just feel a warm sensation during treatment, some people even fall asleep!
There is no recovery time required after Omnilux Light Therapy, you can return to work or your normal activities immediately after a treatment.
