Are you frustrated with fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of aging? OmniLux light therapy is cutting-edge technology used to naturally rejuvenate your skin and reduce visible signs of aging.
The advantages of light treatments are widely recognized in modern medicine. OmniLux was developed after 12 years of careful research to treat a wide range of skin concerns. Harnessing the power of light OmniLux delivers safe, effective skin rejuvenation and wound-healing treatments.
What is Omnilux?
Omnilux Light Therapy is a quick and painless light therapy treatment that works to turn back time. This natural light therapy treatment works to reduce the visible signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, and boosts collagen to plump the skin’s appearance. Acne sufferers rejoice because Omnilux Light Therapy works to treat acne and reduce the appearance of scarring.
How does it work?
As the name suggests Omnilux Light Therapy is a professional grade machine that can only be used by trained therapists. The handle connects to a curved plate which sits close to the face. Once on the Omnilux Light Therapy machine uses a narrow band light that emits LED’s which target skin cells and re-awakens them to naturally plump up the skin all the while accelerating skin’s healing process. Although Omnilux sounds ‘scary’ to someone unfamiliar with the process, it is completely pain-free and works so effectively that Omnilux is ideal to undergo before and after surgery.
There are three types of Omnilux Light Therapy procedures:
1. Omnilux Revive™ uses a red light to rejuvenate skin cells and repair damaged skin. Focusing on fine lines and uneven skin tone, Omnilux Revive delivers a wavelength of red light directly to the skin. It is designed to penetrate deep in to the skin and naturally boost skin’s collagen.
2. Omnilux Blue™ uses a blue light to stimulate anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties from deep within the skin to stabilize over excessive sebum production that acne suffers endure on a daily basis. The result is to effectively treat acne and prevent it from taking control.
3. Omnilux Plus™ uses a white light to heal the skin in more depth than Omnilux Revive™ and Blue™ however the main purpose is to heal skin which makes it ultra-popular for use after cosmetic surgery. Plus™ also works effectively to turn over skin cells quickly and treat burns, new scars and other damaged skin.
