Omnilux LED light therapy The science behind the beauty
LED (Light Emitting Diode) devices are well established in clinical anti-aging and skin-care therapy, as well as in the treatment of a wide variety of skin conditions. Omnilux™ Professional LED devices are the gold-standard medical technology used by dermatologists and aestheticians world over because of their ability to promote skin recovery and healing.
Omnilux products combine clinically proven wavelengths of light with optimized energy levels in a process called LED phototherapy.
When you use an Omnilux Contour product, the LEDs emit light into your skin.
Light photons of specific wavelengths are absorbed by cell components, particularly the mitochondria, triggering a cascade of biochemical reactions as explained below.
Visible red and near infrared light is absorbed into the skin and dermis
Mitochondria (the cell's "battery") absorb the light and convert it to energy for cellular activity
Increased cellular activity produces a cascade of reactions called "secondary reactions"
Secondary reactions include the increased production of collagen (called collagenisis) and elastin
New collagen forms within the dermis, resulting in plumper, smoother and more radiant skin
The results are visibly smoother, firmer skin, a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, a more even skin tone, and less pigmentation.
Before Omnilux Contour:
pronounced redness, pigmentation, and rough skin surface
After 4 weeks of Omnilux Contour:
reduction of redness and pigmentation, smoother and brighter skin
LED therapy is a completely natural treatment and does not contain any harmful UV wavelengths; it does not create heat or thermally damage the skin.
Each wavelength, or color of light stimulates a specific skin response:
- Red reduces inflammation, pigmentation, and redness and helps prompt cellular repair and circulation for a more vibrant complexion.
- Near-infrared targets deeper fibroblast cells, stimulating new collagen and elastin production, resulting in plumper, firmer, more youthful looking skin.
What is Omnilux Contour?
Based on the world’s leading Omnilux MedicalTM light therapy technology, Contour is an FDA cleared flexible, portable, affordable home use device that uses light emitting diodes (LED) to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and improve overall skin tone, firmness, and health.
How does Omnilux Contour LED Mask
Optimized energy output and two clinically proven wavelengths of light work on a cellular level to stimulate new collagen, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and reduce sun damage and the visible signs of aging.
Is the Omnilux Contour LED Mask safe?
We recommend a course of treatments: three to five 10 minute treatments per week, for 4-6 weeks, followed by routine maintenance as desired.
Can I use Omnilux Contour LED Mask with my current skincare products?
Omnilux Contour is compatible with most skin care routines. It can also be used in conjunction with other professional skin treatments such as micro needling, peels, microdermabrasion, laser treatments, injections or fillers to promote healing and optimize results.
Do I need eye protection with the Omnilux Contour FACE mask?
Please refer to the Omnilux Contour User Guide that is included with the product for complete instructions for use, warnings, precautions and contraindications.
How does Contour compare to the Omnilux Medical professional system?
The Omnilux Medical device has an output of 105mW/cm2, but because the Contour’s LEDs are directly on the skin, it delivers a higher concentration of light. It's similar to shining a flashlight on a wall — the closer you get to the wall, the brighter and more intense the light becomes. Therefore, the dose delivered during a Contour treatment is very similar to that delivered during a treatment with an Omnilux Medical professional device, and the results are also therefore very similar
Can I use Contour while moving around or do I have to remain plugged into a wall outlet while using it?
The Contour is completely portable and battery powered so you can easily walk or move around while wearing it. You only need to plug it into an outlet to recharge the battery, which lasts for approximately 140 minutes, or 14 treatments.
Can I use it more frequently than the 2-3x per week in your User Guide?
Yes. There is no downside to using it more frequently. However, using it more often will not, in most cases, provide any faster or better results
How many LEDs does Omnilux Contour FACE mask have?
Omnilux Contour has more LEDs than any other home use LED device. Contour FACE has a total of 132 LEDs (66 red and 66 infrared) encased in 66 bulbs. Contour NECK & DECOLLETE has 102 LEDs (54 red and 54 infrared) encased in 54 bulbs. Contour GLOVE has 144 LEDs (72 red and 72 infrared) encased in 72 bulbs.
What does LED light therapy do?
LED light therapy utilizes specific wavelengths (colors) of light and energy levels (brightness) to stimulate the body’s own natural healing processes. LED light works at the cellular level, inducing a cascade of cellular reactions aimed at specific skin conditions and outcomes.
Does LED light therapy actually work?
How long does it take LED light therapy to work?
For skin rejuvenation red and infrared light has been clinically proven to produce the best results. For acne, red and blue light is best.
Do LED light masks really work?
Yes. Omnilux’s Contour devices are FDA cleared and have been clinically proven to produce medical grade results. However not all LED masks are created equal. Some brands are less powerful and lack the clinical studies or FDA clearance that demonstrate proven effectiveness.
What does an LED mask do for your face?
Will this help with psoriasis, rosacea or eczema?
Is light therapy safe to use with Retinol or RetinA?
What is the Hydrogel mask?
How do I use the Hydrogel mask?
Apply the Hydrogel mask to clean skin. Place the Omnilux Contour FACE device over the hydrogel and secure in place. Once your 10-minute treatment is over, remove the Hydrogel from your face and massage any remaining gel into your skin. Finish off with your favorite moisturizer or skincare products! Hot tip: because of the delicate, gel-like consistency of the Hydrogel Mask, it's recommended to enjoy this mask while lying down.
What are the ingredients in the Hydrogel mask?
How do I charge my Omnilux device?
- Select appropriate plug-type wall socket adapter for your country and connect to power supply plug.
- Insert USB micro-connector (smaller connector) side of power supply charging cable into the oval-shaped controller
- NOTE: DO NOT CONNECT THE LED DEVICE TO THE CONTROLLER WHILE CHARGING. THIS MAY DAMAGE THE DEVICE.
- Insert the power supply plug into a suitably grounded electrical outlet
- The 3 lights on the controller will flash, indicating the level of charge. The controller battery will be fully charged when all 3 lights are illuminated. This can take up to 5 hours.
- Unplug the power supply and power charging cable from the controller.
- Plug the device into the controller (the larger USB connector) and hold controller button down for 2 seconds to activate the device.
