National Acne Awareness Month
June is National Acne Awareness Month, so let’s dive into a topic that has plagued countless clients and caused frustration for both them and you — their treatment providers. As skincare experts, we understand how acne can negatively impact self-esteem and quality of life. But fear not! We're here to shed light (pun very much intended) on an effective solution that can help eliminate acne and transform the lives of your clients. Blue light therapy has emerged as a game-changer in the fight against acne, and we are thrilled to share its incredible benefits with you.
Acne is more than just a few pesky blemishes; it’s an emotional rollercoaster. Clients dealing with acne often experience a lack of confidence, embarrassment, and even social anxiety. As aestheticians and dermatologists, you witness this struggle firsthand. The search for a solution becomes a constant battle, as traditional treatments may not always provide the desired results.
Enter Omnilux Clear — FDA cleared (also TGA approved, CE and MDR certified), it is a non-invasive and innovative treatment that offers a ray of hope for acne sufferers. Our Omnilux Clear device uses 415nm blue light wavelength to target the bacteria responsible for acne, known as Propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes). This therapy works by penetrating the skin’s surface and exciting the porphyrins within the bacteria, ultimately destroying them. A key factor in preventing clogged pores, blue light therapy also helps regulate sebum production.
Thanks to the addition of 633nm red light wavelength, Omnilux Clear not only eliminates p. acnes bacteria but also reduces inflammation and promotes faster healing. It is especially perfect for those clients who want a natural alternative to harsh topical treatments and complicated skincare routines. Need more proof?

Although LED light therapy is great on its own, it’s important to educate your clients about complementary lifestyle changes that can enhance the treatment’s efficacy. Encourage clients to adopt these basic tips:
Emphasize the importance of using gentle cleansers that won’t strip the skin of its natural oils. Harsh products can disrupt the skin barrier and trigger more breakouts.
Hydrate inside and out
Encourage clients to stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water and incorporating moisturizer suitable for their skin type. More often than not, clients with acne-prone, oily skin types avoid moisturizing which causes their skin to produce even more sebum and potentially clog pores.
Use acne-friendly makeup
Guide clients to choose non-comedogenic and oil-free cosmetics to avoid clogging pores. Remind them that using a good makeup remover before bed is a must for preventing pore congestion.
Change pillowcases often
Dirt and sweat accumulate on pillowcases, introducing bacteria to skin. Your clients should be changing their pillowcases at least twice a week and use a gentle detergent to avoid irritation.
Advise your clients to do their best to reduce stress, consume less processed foods, sugar, and dairy.
