In most cases acne begins when you reach puberty; the body releases hormones such as testosterone (present in both men and women), which in turn stimulate the sebaceous glands in the skin to produce an oily substance called Sebum. Sebum and dead skin cells combine therefore clogging the pores of the skin. When this occurs the natural skin bacteria Propionibacterium acnes (P.acnes) thrives, and the pore becomes inflamed as your bodies natural defences combat the infection – the result is acne or pimple breakouts.
Omnilux Blue LED Acne Phototherapy is a light source that emits light at a particular wavelength. This light, made up of Light Emitting Diodes, or LED’s, is specifically tuned to activate the porypyrins that naturally occur in the acne causing bacteria P.acnes, destroying the bacteria while simultaneously stimulating the cells in your body that assist in the healing process.
Omnilux Blue LED Acne Phototherapy is pain free as the blue light does not produce heat, as in laser treatments, and will not damage the skin.
When coming in for your treatment sessions, it is important that your skin should be clean and any makeup or sunscreen is removed prior to commencing Omnilux Blue LED treatments. This will aid in the ability of the light to penetrate to the P.acnes beneath, providing you with a better result, more quickly.
Results vary with some subjects seeing a complete clearance of the lesions; although on average patients should expect a 73% clearance of lesions, with optimum results in about 4-12 weeks from the completion of the treatments.

Acne scarring is made up of a network of fine capillaries and unorganized collagen bundles. Omnilux Blue Light primarily works on the bacteria in active acne lesions. However, we do offer IPL photo rejuvenation which is very successful at treating acne scarring.
