Omnilux Medical LED FAQ and Patient Instructions
In today’s post, we’ll help to answer some of your biggest Omnilux questions, plus explain what to expect both before and after your treatment. Let’s get started!
Before Your Omnilux Treatment
It’s possible to improve your results during the weeks prior to your treatment using cleansers that contain either retinol, salicylic acid or glycolic acid.
Continue to use your recommended or prescribed topical and oral skin products.
Clean your skin thoroughly before your treatment, being sure to remove any skincare products and makeup.
Prior to your treatment, your skin will be prepped by our staff to remove any other debris that could interfere with your treatment.
After Your Omnilux Treatment:
Omnilux requires very minimal special care after the treatment.
Feel free to apply an oil-free moisturizer if your skin feels dry or tight.
You can resume your normal skincare routine the same evening of your treatment.
What is Omnilux Medical LED Therapy?
Omnilux Medical LED uses a combination of pure, visible red and infrared light to stimulate the deeper skin tissue, leading to a softening of fine lines, improved skin tone and super smooth skin.
How does it work?
Omnilux Medical LED light therapy works with the body’s own natural processes to counteract the effects of ageing. The different lights 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 will experience a feeling of relaxation and well-being during and after the treatment. The treatment is not painful, there are no injections involved and there’s no patient downtime. Studies have shown that the majority of clients find the treatment relaxing
How many treatments are needed?
This depends upon your individual treatment regime. Your health professional will advise you on how many treatments may be suitable for your particular needs.
How long will the treatment take?
Your first treatment will take 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. The initial effects you will see are a clearer, brighter and smoother complexion. After the course of treatments have finished you will still see an improvement in tone, clarity and skin smoothness. You will also see softening of your fine lines and wrinkles.
How long will the results last?
This will vary according to skin type and lifestyle and whether you have combined Omnilux with other treatments. However, when you have completed your course, it is usually recommended that you have one maintenance treatment on a 4-6 week basis, as this will prolong the results.
Who is Omnilux light therapy suitable for?
This is a very effective treatment for both men and women of any age. It is non-invasive and easy to perform.
But the only way to know for sure if Omnilux is right for your skin is to schedule a consultation and meet with a trained medical professional!
