Omnilux® Light Therapy for Acne, Rosacea and Photorejuvenation
Omnilux™ - Advanced Light Therapy
Omnilux™ was created as a result of over 12 years of extensive medical research at the UK Cancer Research Institute and Christie Hospital. Omnilux™ is a new technology based on narrowband Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs).
The advantages of Omnilux™ Light Therapy:
Lege Artis® Clinic Results
A combination of methods - a series of Lege Artis Signature Deep Cleansing Facial with Omnilux™ Light Therapy in acne-prone skin.
A combination of series of Microdermabrasion with Omnilux™ Light Therapy (Revive™ and Plus™) was effective for this client with diffuse pigmentation, skin redness and periorbital wrinkles.
Omnilux Acne Clearance
One of the key bacteria responsible for the inflammation is Propionibacterium acnes or P.acnes. These bacteria produce natural chemicals called poryphyrins. Omnilux Blue™ stimulates these chemicals into synthesizing intracellular singlet oxygen - inducing bacterial death and so eradicating the inflammatory effects of acne.
Omnilux Blue™ is combined with Omnilux Revive™ which has anti-inflammatory properties and helps to reduce the redness of acne lesions. It has also been clinically proven to stimulate fibroblasts, therefore enhancing collagen production and turnover in the skin and resulting in healthier, rejuvenated skin surrounding the acne affected area, minimizing the eventual possibility of scarring.
For severe acne, Omnilux Plus™ (830nm) near infra-red light is combined with Omnilux Blue™ treatment. Omnilux Plus™ light penetrates deeper into the skin and is a powerful stimulating force for mast cells, neutrophils, macrophages, fibro-myocytes and keratinocytes. It encourages calcium ion production and inter-cell signalling. Omnilux Plus™ is a potent immuno-modulating wavelength and, in addition, acts to rejuvenate the skin surrounding the acne affected area.
Omnilux™ combination light therapy works through the antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties of blue and red light. In prominent clinical study, after just 8 treatments, subjects saw an 81% reduction in acne lesions.

Omnilux Rosacea Treatment
Rosacea is a common chronic skin problem, charachteized by skin redness, enlarged and broken capillaries. Ofter its presentation resembles acne. The course of rosacea is often prolonged and recurrences are common.
The use of Omnilux™ Light Therapy in rosacea offers excellent efficacy in redness reduction and overall facial cosmetic enhancement. In addition, the anti-inflammatory effects of the Omnilux Revive™ treatments act to prolong time-to-recurrence of the condition.
The treatment course is typically 2 treatments weekly for 5 weeks, 10 light treatments in total. A follow-up appointment 12-weeks after the final light therapy session is recommended.

Aging is accompanied by a diminishing quantity of collagen in the dermis. The skin looses flexibility and ability to retain moisture - therefore becomes dryer and thinner as the body's natural regeneration processes slow.
Photoageing componds these effects, sinse harmful UVA and UVB rays in sunlight produce enzymes that brake down skin's supportive structure and so prevent formation of new collagen. Cell activation tests show that Omnilux Revive™ and Omnilux Plus™ have specific and unique cell stimulation patterns acting to photobiomodulate cell function and rejuvenate the skin.
Omnilux Revive™ 633 nm red light is absorbed in the cellular mitochondria and stimulates ATP production leading to increased cell vitality. The light is potently absorbed by fibroblasts, with a subsequent increase in the speed and efficiency of collagen synthesis.
Omnilux Plus™ 830 nm light acts synergistically with Revive™ light to achieve optimum efficacy in photorejuvenation. Omnilux Plus™ is strongly absorbed within fibro-myocytes promoting alignment and increased tone in the newly produced collagen bundles. The composite effect leaves the skin fuller and tighter in appearance. Light stimulated neovascularization in the treatment area means greater perfusion to the skin, increased oxygenation and removal of toxins and a more glowing appearance.
What to expect Clinical trials using Omnilux Revive™ in combination with Omnilux Plus™ light therapy show a significant reduction in skin roughness and density of skin furrows at 9 and 12 week follow-up.
In an independent study over 80% of subjects
reported a softening of fine lines after a treatment course and 75% reported improvement in skin softness and smoothness.
83.9% of patients reported softening of wrinkles after a course of 7 light treatments. Improvements continue to be seen when the light treatments have ended.
