Light Therapy

wilderman-cosmetic-clinic-slide6Omnilux red light therapy effectively rejuvenates skin by reversing the effects of aging. It does so by directly stimulating and increasing collagen production, a protein which naturally diminishes with time. Collagen is an important protein in the body, as it provides texture and shape to our skin.

As collagen levels decrease, our skin is left looking less smooth and becomes more prone to lines, wrinkles, and sagging. Prolonged exposure to the sun can also speed up this process.

Omnilux is a non-invasive light-only skin treatment suitable for all skin types and any age. Before receiving a treatment, all makeup is removed and the skin is lightly cleansed. As collagen production is stimulatedThe treatment works by stimulating the dermal layer of the skin to produce more collagen, which “plumps out” fine lines or wrinkles. Your eyes will be protected with specially designed goggles during the treatment.

How many treatments anyone will need to improve their skin will depend on their age and skin condition. It’s usual for a multiple treatments – somewhere around 8 – to be grouped together over the course of just a couple weeks in the beginning in order to maximize collagen production. Each one would be about 20 to 30 minutes long. Then, a single maintenance treatment every two months or so can be enough to extend the effects and keep the collagen levels at their peak.

It does this by using a combination of infrared and visible red light. The light reaches the deeper skin tissue and stimulates the cells that produce collagen into a more active state. The result is an increase in collagen production and overall levels. That increase, smoothes lines, improves tone, and leaves our skin looking younger.

The light used in Omnilux therapy has no UVA (long wave) or UVB (medium wave) radiation. Therefore, sunburn and other related problems are not an issue. The light is of course quite bright so special goggles are worn during treatments to protect the eyes.

There is no pain associated with an Omnilux treatment and no special creams, injections, or preparations are needed to receive one. Patients merely sit or lie under the light for 20 to 30 minutes at a time and walk away with no harmful side-effects. They can immediately apply makeup or other topical applications to their skin if desired because their skin isn’t damaged or sensitive.

Omnilux light therapy treatments can be taken even after other kinds of treatments like microdermabrasion or normal facials. There’s no need for any recovery time. In fact, the anti-inflammatory benefits of the light therapy and the boost in collagen levels provided by Omnilux can even enhance these other types of treatments.

Omnilux light therapy is an effective way to fight back against aging. It helps to firm up skin tissue and smooth out those lines and wrinkles that creep up on us when we’re not looking. Omnilux can be a real help in keeping our complexions smoother and brighter for years to come.
