Acne Therapy studies show that acne affects more than 85 percent of people by the age of 24 and approximately 50 percent over 25. It is an upsetting condition as sometimes it can be widespread, affecting much of your face. Acne can also appear on the chest, back and limbs, sometimes producing life-long scarring.
What is Acne?
Acne results when the sebaceous glands in the skin start producing excess oil also known as sebum. The sebum combines with the gland wall cells and eventually blocks the skin pores. This leads to bacterial colonization. The body’s reaction to this causes inflammation that results in acne breakouts.
Propionibacterium acne is the most common bacteria responsible for skin inflammation and acne breakouts. These bacteria produce poryphyrins (natural chemicals) which are sensitive to light. The best way to reduce inflammation is to neutralise propionbacterium by stimulating the natural chemicals. The Omilux Blue Light therapy system works by targeting and destroying the active bacteria found in acne.
OMNILUX Blue Light Therapy – What is it?
Approved by Health Canada & CFIA, OMNILUX Blue Light is the latest, safe and pain-free non-invasive therapy for treating moderate inflammatory acne. It is suitable for all age groups.
OMNILUX Blue utilizes PDT (Photo Dynamic Therapy) technology to treat acne eruption. The blue light stimulates the natural chemicals and effectively targets the bacteria that cause acne without heating or damaging the surrounding areas and tissues.
Simply put, the blue light therapy stimulates anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory activities in the deep layers of the skin, treating active acne successfully.
How does it Work?
OMNILUX Blue delivers a blue light beam at a precise 408 nm wavelength. For proper power density with a uniform beam profile OMNILUX Blue uses a panel of about 1,700 focused diodes. The blue light when penetrates into the skin, creates a highly toxic environment for propionbacterium acne (P acne) which kills bacteria. And when there are no bacteria, the inflammation subsides and the acne clears out giving you a clean and a healthy skin.
