What does Omnilux Revive™ involve?
Your initial treatment will involve a detailed skin analysis and consultation. Treatments there after will typically be 30 minutes. A course of nine (9) treatments is higly recommended to maximise your investment. Ongoing maintenance on a four to six week basis will prolong the results.
Majority of clients will feel an immediate effect, but every skin type is different. Immediately after your first treatment, your skin will look clearer, brighter and smoother. Successive course of treatments is KEY to ensuring you get the best possible results.
What actually happens during the treatment?
You will have to remove any makeup or sunblock before the treatment and you will also be asked to wear safety goggles. The light will then be positioned close to your face and you will be treated. You will feel a pleasant, warm feeling under the light beam as the light surrounds your face. It is much like lying on the beach without the harmful UVA, UVB or infra-red radiation.
Are there any side effects from the treatments?
No. There have been no reported adverse side effects like redness or irritation from the treatment, and the light does not damage skin in any way.
Is it painful?
Not at all because there’s no heat involved, there’s no pain!
Although the ageing of our skin is a complex biological process there are two main causes: chronological ageing – the effect of time on our bodies; and photo-ageing – the effect of the sun’s harmful rays.

As we grow older, the amount of collagen, the major supporting protein of the body, diminishes. In addition, the skin becomes less flexible. This means that our skin becomes drier and thinner as the body’s natural regeneration process slows down, and the skin slowly loses its ability to retain moisture.
These effects are further compounded by the harmful UVA and UVB rays in sunlight. These damage the skin by producing enzymes that break down the skin’s supportive structure and so prevent the creation of new collagen.
Successfully restoring the skin overcomes the effects of time and exposure to the sun by stimulating the creation of new collagen. It also aids the detoxification of the skin.
And this is where Omnilux Revive™ plays such a unique and valuable role.
Omnilux Revive™ delivers a totally natural method of light-only skin rejuvenation which uses the body’s own natural processes to help counteract the effects of ageing. Unlike some anti-ageing treatments that work as a result of the body’s response to damage, Omnilux Revive™ stimulates natural processes to rejuvenate the skin.
Because Omnilux Revive™ stimulates cells involved in repair of the skin and increases blood flow, it can be used successfully to enhance and improve other skin treatments.
Omnilux Revive™ can be used after microdermabrasion, facial peels and laser and Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy, reducing the side effects and speeding up the time your tissue takes to regenerate. Omnilux Revive™ can also be used in combination with your regular facial treatments and with injections such as Botox™ and fillers, helping to maintain the effect of the treatment.
Acne is one of the world’s most common skin conditions, affecting over 85% of adolescents by the age of 24 years and up to 50% of adults over 25 years of age. Acne is a widespread and upsetting condition. It can produce lifelong physical and emotional scarring.
Acne is NOT caused by bad diet or greasy foods. In fact, acne develops when the sebaceous glands in a person’s skin produces excess oil? (sebum). This oil combines with cells that line the gland walls and clogs the skin’s pores. Normal skin bacteria colonise these pores and the body’s response causes the inflammation or reddening of the skin that we associate with acne.
How does Omnilux™ light therapy work?
One of the key bacteria responsible for the inflammation is Propionibacterium acnes or P.acnes. These bacteria produce natural chemicals called poryphyrins, which are sensitive to light at different wavelengths. If stimulated, these chemicals will neutralise the bacteria and with no bacteria present inflammation will subside.
Omnilux blue™ stimulates these chemicals and so eradicates the bacteria that cause the redness or inflammation of acne. This is combined with Omnilux revive™ which has anti inflammatory properties, this helps to minimise the redness of acne lesions and promotes healthier skin.
Omnilux treatments are totally non-invasive and generate no heat. The treatment does not damage normal tissue and works with the body’s own natural processes to rejuvenate the skin.

- Either 8 alternate Omnilux blue™ and Omnilux revive™ or 8 Omnilux blue™ treatments over four weeks.
- Allow At least 48 hours rest time between treatments.
- Combination light therapy consists of alternate Omnilux blue™ and Omnilux revive™ treatments
- Never use blue and revive together as this reduces the treatment efficacy
- Can be used with anti-comedonal treatments
What is Omnilux™ light therapy for acne?
Omnilux blue™ is a light source that is specially tuned to activate natural chemicals found in the bacteria that cause skin redness in acne. When stimulated,these chemicals destroy the bacteria. Omnilux revive™ is used in combination with Omnilux blue™. Omnilux revive™ stimulates cells in your body that help with the healing process and reduce the inflammation surrounding the acne lesions
How safe is the treatment?
Omnilux blue™ and Omnilux revive™ are safe and harmless to your skin and generate no heat. The light works naturally with your body to promote the healing response. The only safety measure is to wear goggles to protect your eyes from the light.
What results can be expected from a series of treatments?
Optimum results will be seen between 4-8 weeks after treatment. The light stimulates natural processes that continue after the treatment has stopped. Whilst studies have shown complete clearance of lesions, on average you should expect 70% of lesions to clear when using blue light alone and over 80% when using blue and red light together. We suggest that the treatment is used in conjunction with a preparation such as salicylic acid. Your advisor can discuss this combination treatment with you.
