Instructions for Omnilux Clear-U

Updated February 21, 2017

Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes), one of the bacteria responsible for acne, dies when exposed to alternating treatments of blue and red light. Omnilux Clear-U is a hand-held light therapy device combining blue and red light in a single unit. Each Omnilux Clear-U comes with eight skincare tripaks containing preparation, treatment and aftercare solution to be used in conjunction with the Omnilux light therapy. The light therapy treatment lasts approximately 4 weeks, and users have reported results lasting up to 6 months. Permanent results may take up to four treatment cycles.

  1. Wash your face with the Preparation cleanser. This cleanser removes dirt, oil and make-up. In addition, this cleanser increases circulation in the skin, allowing it to absorb the active ingredients in the Treatment and Aftercare solutions.

  2. Apply the Treatment tripak to your entire face, not just areas of visible acne infection. The Treatment solution reduces the look of pores, increases cell turnover and detoxifies the skin.

  3. Put on the goggles supplied with your Omnilux Clear-U. The lights used to clear your skin can also harm your eyes. The goggles allow you to keep your eyes open while using the light therapy and to direct the light to the most-affected areas.

  4. Face the device away from you, and press the switch upward to the blue circle. This will engage the blue light therapy.

  5. Hold the light next to your skin. Move the light slowly across your face, working upward. Focus the majority of your time on heavily affected areas, but use the light all over your face to prevent new acne and to reduce existing acne.

  6. Continue the treatment for 20 minutes.

  7. Apply the Aftercare tripak to your entire face. This solution helps to repair and moisturise your skin.

  8. Wait at least 48 hours before your next treatment.

  9. Repeat Steps 1 through 8, substituting the red light in Step 4.

  10. Repeat the process, alternating between using the blue light and red light for at least 4 weeks. The light is not harmful to your skin, so you can continue to use Omnilux Clear-U indefinitely to maintain clear skin and regulate breakouts.

  11. Tip

    Continue a regular skincare regimen between light treatments to remove dirt, oil and make-up, and to maintain skin moisture and reduce redness. Use Omnilux Clear-U in conjunction with any topical or oral medication prescribed by your dermatologist.
