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
inflammation will subside.
Omnilux blueTM 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
properties, this helps to minimize 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
Why choose Omnilux combination light therapy for acne?
Omnilux is an essential tool as part of an acne management
program. Omnilux™ delivers pure light optimized to deliver
the correct wavelength and dose for maximum activation
of the target cells.
Combination phototherapy works through the anti-bacterial
and anti-inflammatory activity of Omnilux blue™ and Omnilux
revive™ delivered alternately. Only by delivering
the right wavelength in sequence can optimum results be
Activation of coproporphyrin III creates intracellular
singlet oxygen - inducing complete bacterial death.
This reduces the bacterial colonization of the sebaceous
gland, returning the gland’s abnormally high level
of sebum to normal and reducing the production of proinflammatory
Simultaneously, Omnilux blue™ induces anti-inflammatory
cytokines, stimulating specific immunoregulatory pathways.
intracellular specificity of red light therapy (Omnilux
revive™) is well documented and it has long been demonstrated
that 633nm offers excellent reduction in inflammatory
and is proven to stimulate cellular mechanisms for tissue
