Omnilux treatments are totally non-invasive for patients who suffers from Acne. The treatment does not damage normal tissue and works with the body’s own natural processes to rejuvenate the skin. The treatments consist of two different lights.
What is OmniluxTM light therapy for acne?
Omnilux blue™ is a light source that is specially tuned to activate natural chemicals found in the bacteria that cause skin redness in acne. When stimulated, these chemicals destroy the bacteria. Omnilux revive™ is used in combination with Omnilux blue™. Omnilux revive™ stimulates cells in your body that help with the healing process and reduce the inflammation surrounding the acne lesion.
One of the key bacteria responsible for the inflammation is Propionibaterium acnes. The blue light stimulates body to produce a type of natural chemical that eradicates the bacteria and therefore decrease the inflammations and redness of acne skin.
Omnilux Red Light is proven to stimulate cellular mechanisms responsible for tissue repair and regeneration. The whole treatment area can be bathed in pure red light to maximize treatment outcome.
Combination phototherapy of Omnilux Blue Light and Omnilux Red Light works through the anti-bacterial/anti-inflammatory mechanism and regeneration of tissue collagen to achieve a satisfactory result for acne treatment.
Do Botox treatments hurt?
Botox is administered using an injection, so you will feel a pinch each time the needle punctures the skin. The needle is quite fine, however, and most people tolerate the treatment without any topical numbing creams.
Do I schedule downtime following Botox injections?
You can go back to all of your regular activities following Botox. You may have slight redness or bruising at the injection sites, which fades within a few days, and makeup can easily cover.
How long do the wrinkle-reducing effects of Botox last?
Botox eases wrinkles and lines for three to four months. After that, you need to repeat the treatment to maintain the new, wrinkle-free smoother look. Dr. Cui puts you on a regular treatment schedule.
