The healing quality of light has been understood for centuries. Light therapy for use in skin healing processes has its foundation in the work of researchers such as Trina Karu. Trials have clearly displayed that 633 nm light enhances not only DNA synthesis, but also augments cellular tissue regeneration pathways including collagen deposition.
Light at 830nm is known to stimulate tissue remodeling cell lines and influence Remoting & restructuring of collagen.
Study groups have shown that near Infra-red light (830nm, Omnilux plus) combined with 633nm, Omnilux revive red light accelerates the wound healing response and therefore offers an effective treatment for the healing of compromised tissue.
How Omnilux Works
Why choose Omnilux plus and Omnilux revive for skin rejuvenation and wound healing
Omnilux revive biomodulates fibroblast activity, leading to faster and more efficient collagen synthesis. Omnilux plus stimulates the contractile phase of the remodeling process producing better lineated collagen. In combination these wavelengths work in synergy to produce better visible results and hence patient satisfaction.
In a recent independent study 83% of all subjects reported a softening of fine lines and wrinkles after a course of Omnilux plus and Omnilux revive combination therapy. Over 75% reported a marked improvement in skin softness and smoothness.
Digital profilometry supports the subjective responses with significant improvements in skin roughness and wrinkle depth.
Study groups have shown that near infra-red light combined with 633nm red light accelerates the wound healing response and therefore offers an effective adjunctive therapy, pre and post laser surgery and post surgery.
"I use the Omnilux plus on the day before laser therapy (Carbon dioxide/Erbium laser (C02 6 watts, 40% duty cycle, 1.4 J/cm2 (Eribum), 12 Hrz, 4mm spot) and for 2 days post therapy. I then switch to Omnilux revive, delivering 4 treatments spaced 3 days apart. Our patients are healing amazingly quickly. I’ve noted using this protocol that erythema is dissipating at 3 weeks post treatment”
Dr Mark Taylor Salt Lake City, USA
Dr Mario Trelles Instituto Medico Vilafortuny , Cambrils, Spain uses Omnilux revive and Omnilux plus in his blepharoplasty and mammoplasty procedures, recognizing the benefits of red light.
“Using Omnilux I see a definite reduction in oedema, suture rejections and wound complications, compared to non irradiated suture sites”
Omnilux revive and Omnilux plus - Omnilux Combination Phototherapy
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
What is Omnilux combination phototherapy?
Omnilux uses a combination of pure, visible red light and invisible 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 combination phototherapy works with the body’s own natural processes to counteract the effects of ageing. The different lights target specific cells which are responsible for the synthesis and repair of the skin’s supportive structures.
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 contain harmful UVA or UVB. You will experience a feeling of relaxation and well-being during and after the treatment.
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, unlike other treatments where the effects are short lived, Omnilux light therapy stimulates natural cellular processes that rejuvenate skin. This means the results you see with Omnilux continue to improve for up to 4-6 months after the light treatment.
Who is Omnilux combination phototherapy suitable for?
This is a very effective treatment for both men and women of any age. It is non-invasive and easy to perform.
Realize the potential of combination light therapy
Because Omnilux Combination Phototherapy stimulates cells involved in repair of the skin and increases blood flow, it has been used successfully to enhance and improve other aesthetic treatments. Omnilux Combination Phototherapy can be used before (to condition the skin) and after (to speed up the healing process) a number of popular aesthetic treatments.
Omnilux Combination Phototherapy has been successfully combined with; • Microdermabrasion • Facial peels • Laser ablation • Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy
Omnilux Combination Phototherapy greatly reduces the side effects and speeds up the time your tissue takes to regenerate. This means that you recover much quicker and the overall response is improved.
