The Lowdown On The Omnilux Contour LED Face Mask
The Omnilux Contour LED mask has been popping up on dermatology sites and Instagram posts all over the internet. What is it, and what does it do? Here’s a breakdown:
LED Light Therapy
LED stands for light-emitting diode. This lighting technology, already seen in light bulbs, has recently been incorporated into skincare. It was initially studied for skin wound and burn care and has made its way into cosmetic technology.
How Does It Work?
Skin cells actually have receptors for LED lights. LED lights penetrate the skin at different levels. Two wavelengths of light are used in the Omnilux mask, red and near-infrared. Red reduces inflammation and helps promote cellular repair & blood circulation, while near-infrared targets deeper fibroblast cells, stimulating collagen and elastin production.
Does It Really Work?
While it’s not a cure-all, Dr. Elizabeth Buzney, assistant professor of dermatology at Harvard medical school, says that the technology “shows promise”.
The Omnilux mask certainly seems worth a try. LED therapy has been used in dermatologist offices for several years, and now the opportunity to use it at home has arrived, although at a lower strength. Before and after pictures on the product’s website show a visible, if not dramatic, reduction in wrinkles, acne, and age spots. The LED light technology certainly has some effect on the skin at a cellular level, as attested by the before and after pictures on the website.
The Omnilux mask is strictly topical, meaning nothing gets injected into your skin. It’s completely painless.
How Much Is It?
The Omnilux Contour face mask is $395.00. There are also products available for the hands and neck. You can learn more about it here.
How Long Does It Take?
Results can usually be seen after four weeks of treatment, although of course, this will vary from person to person.
