Debunking LED Light Therapy Dangers

Around the world, consumers, dermatologists and medical professionals alike have been debating the safety and efficacy of LED light therapy. As with any new technology and medical advancement, many questions arise so we are here to discuss the science behind light therapy, demystify any common perceived dangers and show why this convenient at-home treatment will work for you.

Is LED light therapy dangerous?

No, Omnilux LED light therapy is not dangerous. Omnilux has been the global gold-standard in medical phototherapy since 2003. The Omnilux line of products are FDA-cleared home–use light therapy devices for rejuvenating aging skin or clearing acne, with clinically-proven results. There is significant backing of Omnilux from medical experts, over forty clinical studies, twenty years of experience and internationally met safety standards. Clinical support coupled with countless positive customer reviews has shown that the safety of Omnilux Contour and CLEAR can be unequivocally trusted.

Does Omnilux LED light therapy cause cancer?

LED light therapy does not generate heat, emit radiation or contain ultraviolet rays (UV) and therefore does not pose the risks that UV sunlight does, like damage to the skin, wrinkles or even cancers. Omnilux Contour has optimised energy outputs, two clinically-proven wavelengths of light (red and near–infrared) and works on a cellular level to stimulate new collagen, reduce fine lines and other visible signs of aging. Omnilux CLEAR utilizes red and blue wavelengths of light that work on a cellular level to kill acne-forming bacteria in the sebaceous glands.

Does it damage your eyes?

No, Omnilux LED light therapy does not damage your eyes. All Omnilux products have been extensively tested and cleared for all international safety standards, including IEC/EN 62471 Photobiological eye safety standards. Omnilux Contour does not require eye protection; Omnilux CLEAR has built–in eye shields for comfort in eyes that are sensitive to blue light.

Does LED light therapy make skin conditions such as rosacea, eczema and psoriasis worse?

No, quite the opposite. It has been clinically proven that genuine red and near–infrared wavelengths of light help reduce the appearance of pigmentation, redness and uneven skin tone as well as restore overall skin health. Significant clinical data has also shown that the wavelengths of light used in Omnilux Contour and Omnilux CLEAR are effective in reducing inflammation due to acne, acne scaring, psoriasis, eczema, and rosacea. Omnilux Contour has been FDA–cleared for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, and it can also increase the rate of skin healing (particularly after fillers or Botox treatments) through the generation of new skin cells and collagen production.

Now knowing the safety and science behind LED light therapy, you can confidently use Omnilux from the comfort of your own home to look and feel your best.
