Many of the more effective procedures that counteract aging and alter skin structure and surface do so by purposefully "wounding" the skin tissue. Whether by the use of lasers, heat, light or chemicals, this controlled wounding elicits a response from the body that improves skin appearance and texture. Light accelerates the wound healing response and therefore offers an effective adjunctive therapy, pre and post laser surgery. Omnilux reduces pain, swelling and erythema (redness). OmniluxTM can be used with:
This gentle light therapy conditions the skin, reduces the side effects and speeds up the time your tissue takes to regenerate.
Omnilux treatments are included with your Fraxel CO2 Re:pair treatments. You will receive treatments immediately prior to, immediately after and at initial follow-up visits to help speed healing, reduce redness and support new collagen production. Since this premium light therapy is an important part of your Fraxel Re:pair procedure Dr. Pilest has chosen to add Omnilux Photo Therapy at no additional cost.
Study groups have shown that near Infra-red light (830nm, Omnilux Plus™) combined with 633nm, Omnilux Revive™ red light accelerates the wound healing response and therefore offers an effective treatment for the healing of compromised tissue. European Clinical Data
Omnilux 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. Because the light stimulates deeper cellular improvements, you will see further results over the next 4 to 6 months.
Light therapy turns on the "self-destruct" mechanism for the P.acnes bacteria that causes breakouts of chronic acne.

Blue light has been a trusted favorite treatment for mild to moderate acne for a long time.
The addition of alternate red light treatments increases the effectiveness of acne light treatments by acting as an immediate anti-inflammatory. At Total Dermatology your light therapy may be preceded by Salipeel or Isolaz to unclog pores. Acne patients are discovering faster, more visible response to their acne clearing.
In investigative studies PhotoTherapeutics noted a mean clearance rate of over 82% at 12 weeks after the final treatment.
Omnilux PDT is a light based photodynamic therapy for the resolution of acne, sun damage and actinic keratosis. The red light wave length of the Omnilux LED system drives the topical solutions deeper into the abnormal cells of acne and sun damaged skin. This increased penetration depth means more serious action on the cells that are to be destroyed.
