Omnilux Light Therapy is a specially designed device that works to treat acne by emitting blue and red light at certain wavelengths. The blue light affects the microorganisms which cause acne, known as P.acnes bacterium, by damaging their DNA structure. The free radicals in the P.acnes bacterium are also neutralized by the light therapy, which in turn helps clear up the skin from acne symptoms such as inflammation and swelling.
No. Omnilux LED Light Therapy does not use any UV technology.
UV light is primarily made up of UVA rays, which are known for their ability to damage DNA. LED lights do not produce UV light.

You can tell that the treatment is working if your acne has cleared up and gone away after some time of using Omnilux LED light therapy.
According to studies, acne patients have experienced an improvement in their skin’s condition after using light therapy once a day for six months. However, your dermatologist might recommend you use the treatment twice a day in order to achieve the best results possible.
