Do you suffer from dull, dehydrated and lack-lustre skin? Are you forever getting breakouts that never seem to clear up? If so, let me shed some light on my magic wand and the go-to treatment of celebrities everywhere – Omnilux LED Light Therapy.
What Exactly is – LED Light Therapy?
LED light therapy uses the visible light spectrum – the part that is visible to the human eye – in other words, light.
As we know, light is essential for all forms of life. Within the cells of the human body, there are light receptors that absorb photons of light. The mitochondria soak up these photons within each cell, which sets off a cascade of benefits to the skin.
Omnilux LED Light Therapy uses the power of two wavelengths; a blue light at 415 nanometres and a red light at 633 nanometres. Each wavelength has a different effect on the skin:
- Blue light oxidises p. acnes bacteria within the follicles and pores of our skin. It’s used to treat acne and blemished skins. Blue light also has benefits for those with psoriasis and eczema.
- Red light reduces inflammation and redness in the skin. It also stimulates collagen and elastin – which makes for excellent anti-aging! Red light also helps to regulate the sebaceous gland and reduces pigmentation. Red light is a fantastic boost to skin health.
Not all LED is Equal
Other LED devices on the market claim to benefit the skin using different wavelengths, such as those that produce green, orange, or violet colours. The fact is, there is no clinical data to show the effectiveness of these other colours.
Another thing to watch out for is the LED devices oscillating between two different colours in one treatment. This function is a gimmick. There is clinical data that shows this can “confuse” the skin cells you are trying to target.
Omnilux is unique because each light head contains only one wavelength. That means that for each treatment, you’re getting the exact dosage you need. This technology is patented – meaning it can’t be copied. Plus, each wavelength used by Omnilux has clinically validated treatment protocols. For all these reasons, Omnilux is the gold standard in LED light therapy.
Is it Safe?
Some medications can make you light-sensitive. Antibiotics or remedies such as St. Johns Wart, for example. As long as you’re not on some medicines, Omnilux LED Light Therapy is non-invasive, safe and perfect for almost every skin. There is no downtime after treatment. You should plan on a course of treatments for the best results, especially if you have acne or rosacea. Otherwise, you can enjoy the benefits from a single treatment as part of a facial every 4-6 weeks.
