What is Omnilux ?
Omnilux Light Therapy is a painless, non-surgical, non-laser light therapy that complements the skin’s natural moisture renewal process and combats visible signs of ageing. It deeply hydrates and plumps visible fine lines and wrinkles without downtime or side effects.
Omnilux Light Therapy utilises the red or blue components of the natural white light spectrum; it may also apply infrared light to complement the body’s natural ability to renew moisture and refresh skin. Omnilux Light Therapy can be used alone or in combination with other cosmetic procedures and skincare products. This procedure enhances the benefits of laser, IPL, or facial peels.

How does Omnilux work ?
Simply, Omnilux is like a massage — only deeper. It helps plump up skin naturally, similar to photosynthesis in plants or how sunbeds work — minus the damaging effects, of course.
An Omnilux Light Therapy treatment is a truly relaxing 20-minute experience that involves lying down comfortably underneath a light. The light can be shaped to the contour of a specific area for more targeted treatments. Light reaches deeper skin tissue, destroying bacteria and stimulating collagen-producing cells into a more active state. Effects vary according to the colour of light used in the treatment. Collagen production increases and bacteria decreases —skin is rejuvenated, helping minimise visible skin conditions such as acne and signs of ageing.
Omnilux Blue. Omnilux Blue treats acne by destroying acne-causing bacteria with blue light. Treatments are comfortable, fast, and easy. Most moderate inflammatory acne can be cleared in as few as eight 20-minute sessions.
Omnilux Red. Omnilux Red is a truly age-defying treatment. It revitalises skin by promoting collagen production and evening out blotchy skin tone and texture.
Omnilux Infrared (IR). Omnilux Infrared promotes collagen production and reduces the appearance of aged and damaged skin by aiding the healing process.
Are there any side effects ?
There are currently no reported side effects. The Omnilux light source does not emit harmful UVA or UVB rays. Hence, treatments do not harm the skin.
Is this treatment painful ?
Sessions feel warm and relaxing and are virtually painless.
When can I see results and how long do they last ?
Effects are observed immediately after treatment, with skin looking clearer, brighter, and smoother. Since every client is unique, overall results are determined by individual skin type and texture, as well as course duration. A course of successive treatments is key to ensuring the best possible results.
The client’s skin type and lifestyle, as well as if Omnilux has been combined with other treatments such as microdermabrasion, fillers, IPL — these all determine how long results last. This is because light therapy continues to stimulate the skin and improve its appearance for up to four to six months after the initial treatment.
