The Healing Power of Light

With so many healing alternatives out there in the skin care industry, how does one decide which is the best treatment for a client?

Obviously we’re limited to the technology and skin care products that we have on hand. More importantly, it depends on the client’s

health and tolerance to what’s being prescribed that’s going to make all the difference.

One such healing alternative is the OMNILUX Light Therapy, which claims to stimulate your body’s natural processes to heal and rejuvenate the skin.

It is a FDA approved medical device that utilizes light emitting diode (LED) technology. Using visible red LEDs, the OMNILUX works with the body’s own natural processes to counteract the effect of aging.

As we grow older, the cells that manufacture the skin’s supportive structures begin to slow down. Environmental damage from the sun’s rays speed up this process and produce free radicals that damage the skin and the cells that produce collagen and elastin. OMNILUX combination light therapy targets specific cells that are responsible for the synthesis and repair of the skin’s supportive structures, leading to a softening of fine lines and improved skin tone.

This treatment is beneficial and effective for both men and women of all ages and skin types. The light is safe and harmless to the skin and, is virtually pain-free. However, some clients who are photosensitive may experience some visual discomfort even with the safety eyewear that is provided during the 20-minute session. Those clients are the ones this kind of treatment wouldn’t apply even if they could benefit from the treatment, unless the area of concern is not on the face.

The initial effects you will see are clearer, brighter and a smoother looking complexion. After the course of treatment you will begin to notice an improvement in tone, clarity and texture. And, unlike other treatments, where the effects are short-lived, OMNILUX Light Therapy stimulates natural cellular processes that rejuvenate and repair the skin for up to six months after the light treatment.

The number of treatments a client would need depends on the individual. For example in the case of acne, optimum results should be seen between four to eight weeks. For most patients, acne is gone for six months. In some cases, touch-up treatments, of typically two to four treatments may be necessary.

The OMNILUX Light Therapy is non-invasive, non-ablative and safe for patients. It stimulates cell althermally without causing damage to the epidermis or dermal tissue, therefore there is no downtime for patients or unwanted side effects, as may result from use of a laser or IPL. The three OMNILUX treatment heads (red, blue, yellow) emit light at specific, individual narrowband wavelengths to ensure optimal photobiomodulation of target skin cells and maximum treatment efficacy in a wide range of dermato-logical conditions including acne, photodamage, skin rejuvenation, non-melanoma skin cancers and post-surgical wound healing.
