Omnilux Contour™ Face

Introducing Omnilux Contour™ Face to Clear Skin House!  The Game Changing Omnilux Contour™ Face at home LED Mask is the easiest, quickest and least intrusive way to give your skin a regular overall boost without really trying. I have always been a fan of Omnilux, the LED light therapy that has a huge range of benefits for the skin, and the at-home contour mask takes the Omnilux experience to a whole new level. The at-home  Omnilux Contour™ Face is absolutely brilliant. It is a simple flexible plastic mask you wear with a velcro catch at the back to do it up, and you leave it on it for a maximum of 10 minutes a day, 3 days a week. But first let me explain a bit about Omnilux, as this is no ordinary red light therapy skin treatment. This is the real deal. It is used in clinics by over 3,500 plastic surgeons and dermatologists globally, mainly to speed up the healing process of the skin after plastic surgery treatments, and to prolong any and all age-defying treatments. It was developed in the UK after 12 years of medical research, and Omnilux have substantial documented clinical evidence of success treating both acne and wrinkles. Omnilux is pain free, non-invasive, has no down time, and drastically helps with acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, and rejuvenates the skin. They say it also helps prolong the effects of injectables including botox and  filler. The other advantage is that because the Omnilux Contour™ Face mask is flexible, you can actually use it on your body and drape it over almost every body part including your back, shoulders and even legs to treat other areas. It also reduces inflammation and heals scars super quickly. And it’s not cheap, but compared to the price of in-salon treatments, this is value for money. I love it. When your used to professional LED treatments this is the next best thing!  Forget all the other home LED masks you’ve seen on the market, this one is the bees knees. FDA-cleared, dermatologist-recommend light therapy mask with proven results.     Out of all the LED devices I’ve tried, this is my favourite. This at-home device is manufactured by Omnilux, makers of professional medical-grade devices. This sleek mask packs a big punch and can offer results after a single use, plus cumulative results from continued use. Made from anti-microbial silicone, the Contour, well, contours to your face. For LED to be most effective it needs to be as close to the skin as possible.   Based on the world’s leading Omnilux medical light therapy technology, the Contour Mask is a flexible, portable, affordable, FDA cleared for home-use mask. Contour uses red and near-infrared light-emitting diodes (LED) to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, scaring and imperfections, it will also increase skin hydration and improve overall skin tone and health.   WHY THE OMNILUX CONTOUR FACE Omnilux Contour™ Face is the original flexible, FDA-cleared, light therapy mask. With more LEDs and a larger treatment area than any other brand, Contour™ Face is designed and manufactured using Omnilux's proprietary gold-standard medical device technology.   While other brands may claim to use "Omnilux technology", there is only one true Omnilux.   Backed by clinical studies Satisfaction Guaranteed 2 year warranty FDA - Cleared       BENEFITS When you think about it. Our face is our most recognisable feature, to ourselves and to others. It’s our calling card to the world. Years of sun exposure and environmental toxins result in wrinkles, pigmentation, redness, and dry skin - all the visible signs of ageing. The Omnilux Contour™ Face uses optimised energy output and two clinically proven wavelengths of light work on a cellular level to stimulate collagen, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, scaring and reduce the visible signs of ageing and sun damage.   Look as young as you feel with Omnilux Contour™ Face   Non Invasive & Painless Reduces fine lines and wrinkles Reduces the appearance of pigmentation and redness Helps reduce imperfections such as scaring and ageing Promotes healthier, clearer, younger-looking skin All natural.

You can use the Contour morning or night. I love doing a Contour treatment in the evenings, especially towards the end of the night, as it’s super relaxing.   Double cleanse Exfoliate "if it is on the nights or mornings you exfoliate" Toner Apply a hydrating serum and/or an antioxidant serum. Do not apply anything with photosensitive ingredients example retinol, vitamin a or retinoids. Strap on your Omnilux Contour™ Face and either multitask or, my personal favourite, lie back, close your eyes and relax. The light will automatically turn off after 10 mins. Apply any additional serums. This is where you can apply your photosensitive serums.  Apply eye cream. Apply a facial oil and/or a moisturiser. Apply SPF if using your Contour in the morning. Finish with a lip and eye treatment.   Three to five, 10-minute treatments per week for 4-6 weeks weeks followed by maintenance as desired.   The mask is worn on the face and is held in place by an adjustable Velcro strap. The mask is controlled by a rechargeable controller that switches the LEDs ON/OFF and controls power to the mask. Because the device is powered by a rechargeable battery, you can wear the mask and move around, watch TV or write a blog post, while undergoing treatment.     HOW SAFE IS IT Over 40 clinical studies and nearly 20 years of Omnilux experience have proven that Omnilux light therapy is very safe, with no adverse side effects, no pain, and no downtime. Omnilux Contour™ Face generates no heat and is safe for all ages and skin types.   This means all Fitzpatrick Skin Types, making the Contour a great option for someone contraindicated for other collagen stimulating therapies, like Radio Frequency. Not only does it not trigger pigment formation, but it can actually be used to break up hyperpigmentation.     CONTRAINDICATIONS   DO NOT use Omnilux Contour™ LED system to treat any other conditions apart from those listed in the indications for use.
