What is Omnilux Light Therapy? Book now
Omnilux Light Therapy is a brand new technology that has been researched by NASA to help astronauts with wound healing in space. It was developed after 14 years research treating skin cancer patients. Doctors used this technology to treat skin cancer patients and they noticed that the area around the cancer became smoother and clearer – so they developed Omnilux for skin care.
Omnilux has also been proven as a successful rosacea treatment and to reduce the visibility of acne scars.
It’s called PhotoDynamic therapy or Photon Absorption therapy and it uses Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs)to produce pure red light of a specific wavelength. What happens is this: 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.
The Omnilux Revive
Your cells are stimulated by some wavelengths of light but other wavelengths like UV and infra-red damage it, which is why sunbathing makes you look older. Scientists and doctors researched the specific wavelength that stimulates your cells to work better (630 nanometres). The Omnilux Revive uses LEDs to produce light of exactly that wavelength – and nothing else.
This means your cells are stimulated to retain moisture, eliminate toxins and actually produce (or synthesise) chemicals that produce collagen and fibroblasts. So you’re getting all the light at the wavelength you need to look younger – and none of the harmful light that damages your skin. Because of this, and because it isn’t a laser, it works without damaging your skin so there’s no down time like there is with lasers. Omnilux led light therapy is a harmless, safe treatment.
It leaves your skin looking smoother and clearer and helps get rid of wrinkles and fine lines. It feels great too – it’s just like lying on the beach – except there’s no harmful UV rays. It’s even approved in the USA by the FDA and they’re really strict about these things. It works really well by itself and even better with microcurrent facials like CACI or microdermabrasion.

Omnilux FAQ (frequently asked questions)
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 light from LEDs we can stimulate these cells that help counteract the effects of ageing. Unlike some anti-ageing treatments that work as a result of the body’s response to damage, Omnilux stimulates natural processes to rejuvenate the skin.
How does it work?
Omnilux light therapy works with the body’s own natural processes to counteract the effects of ageing. The Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) target specific cells which are responsible for the synthesis and repair of the skins supportive structure.
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 have harmful UVA or UVB. You’ll experience a feeling of relaxation and well-being during the treatment. It isn’t painful and there is no downtime. Studies have shown that most clients find the treatment relaxing
How many treatments are needed?
This depends upon your individual treatment regime. We will advise you on how many treatments may be suitable for your particular needs.
How long will the treatment take?
Your first treatment takes 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. Initially you will see a clearer, brighter and smoother complexion. After a course of treatments you will see an improvement in tone, clarity and skin smoothness. You will also see softening of your fine lines and wrinkles.
