Is at–home LED light therapy safe? Here’s what you need to know.

Omnilux has been recognized as the world leader in medical–grade LED light therapy since 2003. We have over forty clinical studies and twenty years’ experience that show Omnilux LED light therapy is very safe. There are no adverse effects, downtime, or pain. Our devices generate no heat or UV light and are safe for all skin types.

Omnilux Contour and CLEAR products conform to all US and international testing standards for safety, including eye safety, so you do not need to wear eye protection while using your Omnilux Contour device. Some people may be overly sensitive to blue light which is why we have included built-in eye shields with CLEAR. The at-home Omnilux Contour and CLEAR products have been tested to our in-salon medical device standards, including IEC/EN 62471 Photobiological Eye Safety standard.

Is it safe to use while trying to become pregnant, pregnant or breastfeeding?

Our products have not been studied in pregnant or breastfeeding women so we advise against using it during this special time. Red light therapy is very safe overall but because we do not have enough information about use while pregnant or breastfeeding we recommend not using the Omnilux Contour range unless approved by your personal doctor.

Is it safe for teenagers?

Omnilux Contour light therapy is recommended for use by those 21+ years of age and the CLEAR device is recommended for use by those 14+ years of age.

Is it safe to use with Retinol or Retin A?

For users taking prescriptive levels of Retin A such as Tretinoin we do not recommend the use of light devices. Retin A should be discontinued for at least five days before performing light therapy treatments. Those using cosmetics or skincare products containing retinol should read the skincare instructions carefully for warnings and precautions in relation to exposure to light. Cosmetics or skincare products containing retinol may be used with the Omnilux devices if there are no precautions in relation to exposure to light.

Am I able to use LED light therapy with Botox or fillers?

Yes, the red and near–infrared LED light can assist with bruising you may experience after fillers. Studies showed that users felt their Botox treatment lasted longer when combined with light therapy. Omnilux Contour light-therapy treatments are complimentary to Botox or filler treatments and your results may be enhanced.

Is it safe to use every day?

It is safe to use your Omnilux Contour device every day, however we recommend 3-5 days per week for optimal results. For CLEAR, we recommend a course of 4 10-minute treatments per week for 6 weeks. Once the initial series is complete, use Omnilux CLEAR at the earliest signs of a breakout - we do not recommend the use of CLEAR every day.
