Skincare for men doesn’t have to be complicated, but it does have to be effective. Red light therapy is a clinically proven solution for signs of aging and reducing redness and inflammation. With the latest study results, you can count on Omnilux Men to deliver safe yet powerful red light therapy to your male clients from the convenience of their home.
In this article, we’ll discuss the proven benefits of red light therapy for men’s skin, along with other tips, tricks, and considerations.
The Results Are In: Omnilux for MenRed light therapy stimulates collagen production and reduces inflammation, making it a worthwhile treatment for men. But, with many at home LED therapy devices on the market today, clinically proven results are a must. At Omnilux, we’re thrilled to provide just that, with an LED mask designed specifically for men’s unique skincare needs.
Clinical research on the Omnilux Men device was recently published in the Archives of Dermatological Research. This study evaluated male facial rejuvenation with a combination of red light and near-infrared LED light therapy using the Omnilux device.
The study participants used the mask for 10 minutes, three to five times weekly, for six weeks. After six weeks, digital skin analysis of before and after photos revealed improvements in wrinkles, pores, UV spots, brown spots, and pigmentation.
Additionally, all participants rated a positive improvement overall, with the greatest self-reported improvement in fine lines, wrinkles, skin texture, and youthful appearance. The participants also reported that the mask was comfortable and very easy to use. That's a win in our book!
A separate new study using the Omnilux Men device evaluated participants over a 12 week period. This study also produced positive results, and all participants demonstrated improvement in skin texture, appearance of pores, discoloration, and wrinkles.
Participants also reported that the mask was safe and easy to use and would recommend the treatment to their family or friends.
What does this mean for you and your clients? If you’re seeking a fuss-free skincare option that stimulates real clinical results, consider adding Omnilux Men to your lineup.

Skin Considerations for MenDid you know that men’s skin can be up to 25% thicker than women’s skin? With a higher density of collagen fibers, male skin tends to reveal signs of aging at an older age. But, when they start to appear, wrinkles may develop more rapidly than in women.
Along with signs of aging, men are particularly prone to acne and clogged pores, as male skin naturally produces more oil.
Despite these considerations, guys can achieve smooth, clear skin and regulate excess oil production with the addition of Omnilux Men.
Skincare for Men: Our Top Tips
While successful skincare habits don’t need to change much for different genders, fellas can incorporate these targeted tips:
Wash Away Impurities
After a sweaty workout and before heading to bed, men should wash their face with a gentle cleanser to clear pores.
Don’t Skip the SPF
Men’s skin may be thicker than women’s, but it’s still susceptible to sun damage. Every morning, they should apply a facial sunscreen containing SPF 30 or higher before heading outside. UV rays can reach us through the windows, too, so it's important not to skip this step on work-from-home days. Just be sure sunscreen is applied AFTER a morning LED session.
Take Care with Ingrowns and Razor Burn
It’s no secret that many guys have to deal with ingrown facial hair and razor burn. Shaving can cause skin irritation and trap bacteria in their pores, leading to breakouts, pesky bumps, and inflammation. Incorporating ingredients and devices that fight acne-causing bacteria, like salicylic acid and blue light therapy, can ward off bumps. If your male clients' skin concerns are more geared toward mild to moderate acne, consider adding a combination of blue and red light therapy into their routine with the Omnilux Clear - designed to kill acne-causing bacteria.
To prevent razor burn and irritation, men should consider their shaving technique. Cleanse the skin and apply a hydrating shaving cream before picking up the razor, then shave in the direction of hair growth. Rinse after each stroke, and switch out the blade regularly.
Choose Products That Pack a Punch
Many guys prefer quick, fuss-free skincare routines. For results without the hassle, we always opt for skincare products with potent active ingredients. Powerful serums (like our Peptide Concentrate) promote healthy, youthful skin without the need for a 10-step routine.
Target Common Skin Concerns with At Home Devices
We understand that many clients may have a hard time maintaining their skin results in between clinic treatments. At home devices for common skin concerns, like LED light therapy masks, deliver professional-grade technology from the comfort of home, meaning your clients can enjoy healthy, glowing skin every day. LED masks are a wonderful option for guys seeking a convenient solution to treating fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, pigmentation, redness and acne. Omnilux Men is the first LED mask engineered for men's thicker skin and is equipped with a longer wavelength of near-infrared light (1072nm) to effectively penetrate deeper into the skin.
With the above information and the Omnilux Men device at your disposal, you can create a skincare routine that's mindful of your clients' schedules and that delivers real, clinically-backed results.
