Omnilux Review: Can a Mask Reduce Wrinkles?

Omnilux Review: Can a Mask Reduce Wrinkles?

Read our Editorial Guidelines to learn more about what makes our site the premier resource for online health information.

Omnilux is an anti-aging LED device that’s worn like a mask. The company claims to use “medical-grade LED light therapy” and uses the catchphrase “Mask On, Wrinkles Gone.”

But is LED light therapy actually proven in medical studies to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, or are these just marketing claims? Is Omnilux superior to other red light therapy devices for skin? How does its price compare? And how do real users rate and describe the effects of Omnilux?

In this article we’ll answer all of these questions and more, as we analyze the specifications of Omnilux’s devices based on medical studies to give our take on whether they’re likely to be effective, or if they’re a waste of money.

We’ll compare Omnilux to other popular red light cosmetic brands like Solawave, and feature unsponsored Omnilux customer reviews.

Does LED Light Reduce Wrinkles?

Omnilux has been studied in clinical trials for not only wrinkle reduction but other skin conditions like acne.

A clinical trial published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology documented that after five weeks of Omnilux treatment, 50% of participants achieved “moderate” response according to investigators (suggesting wrinkle reduction), and 91% of subjects reported improved skin tone after 12 weeks.

A 2007 clinical trial reported similarly positive results, with the study authors concluding that the therapy “is an effective approach for skin rejuvenation.”

A 2014 clinical trial found Omnilux to be effective against acne, with over 90% of patients experiencing greater than 90% improvement.

A 2006 clinical trial reported that Omnilux was effective for moderate-to-severe facial acne.

Based on the available research, we consider Omnilux likely to be effective for wrinkles and acne, and this device has the most impressive clinical backing of any LED therapy device we’ve reviewed to date on Illuminate Health.

But how does it compare to other LED devices on performance and price? We’ll answer that q question in the next section.

Omnilux vs. The Competition

There are a number of LED cosmetic devices on the market, with Solawave arguably the most popular among them.

As we discussed in our Solawave review article, that brand uses red light therapy at a similar wavelength to the wavelength in medical studies, so we suggested the device is likely to be effective.

However, we cannot identify any clinical trials specifically testing the Solawave device, while we found many on Omnilux, so we would give Omnilux the edge from a clinical backing perspective.

There are other red light facial devices on the market but none seem to have the clinical backing of Omnilux.

We consider Omnilux to be the best-performing LED device for wrinkles and acne.

Here’s a price comparison between the leading LED therapy brands:

Joov Mini 3.0: $1,099

Omnilux: $395

Solawave: $120.99 (link)

Solawave wins out on price, but we’d still recommend that consumers who can afford it go with Omnilux due to the brand’s research backing.

The price discrepancy seems stark, but given that this is a one-time purchase, it amortizes to very small amounts per-use.

But how do real users rate and describe the effects of Omnilux? We’ll feature some unsponsored customer reviews in the next section.

Real People Try Omnilux

A YouTube creator named “HotAndFlashy” has a video reviewing Omnilux that includes before-and-after images and has over 475,000 views:

A YouTube creator named Alex Fergus gives his perspective on the mask after five weeks of use, and also includes before and after images:

Does Omnilux Cause Side Effects?

One of the potential concerns consumers have about Omnilux is the risk of side effects, given that the device emits light so close to the face.

Since the brand has been extensively clinically tested, we can look to the research for evidence of potential side effects.

The only side effects documented in the four clinical trials we cited in the first section of this article were minimal and transitory, such as itching, redness and minimal papules and pustules which faded over time.

Omnilux does not appear to cause any severe or irreversible side effects, and only causes mild side effects in a minority of users according to clinical research.

A medical review on cosmetic light therapy concluded the following: “The treatment modality displays an excellent safety profile.”

Dermatologist Compares LED Facial Devices

Our Clean Skincare Picks

There are skincare products that contain ingredients shown in clinical trials to be effective for reducing wrinkles and improving skin quality generally.

Annie Mak Vitamin C Serum is our top skin cream pick because of its effective and clean formulation. It contains hyaluronic acid which was described as a "skin-rejuvenating biomedicine" in a medical review due to its ability to reduce wrinkles and signs of facial aging.

Interested consumers can check out Annie Mak Vitamin C Serum at this link to the product page on the official brand's website.

Hydraglow is our top moisturizer pick. It features bakuchiol as an active ingredient which was described in a 2014 clinical trial as "clinically proven to have anti-aging effects."

Interested consumers can check out HydraGlow at this link to the product page on the official brand's website.

The only oral supplement we recommend for skin quality improvement is Bulletproof Collagen Powder.

Oral collagen supplementation was shown in a medical review published in the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology to improve visible signs of skin aging as well as improve skin elasticity and skin hydration.

Interested consumers can check out Bulletproof Collagen Powder at this link to the product page on the brand's official website.

None of the products recommended in this section contain additive ingredients that we consider questionable from a health perspective.

Conclusion

We consider Omnilux to be the industry leader in the LED cosmetic therapy space.

This brand has more clinical studies proving the efficacy of their product than any other cosmetic facial device we’ve reviewed to date on Illuminate Health.

We would recommend Omnilux to consumers who can afford it, because while the one-time cost is relatively high, the per-use cost is quite low if it’s used for a number of years.

LED therapy appears unlikely to cause serious side effects in anyone, and unlikely to cause mild side effects in the average user, based on medical studies.

Nearly all of the online customer reviews we came across while researching this brand were positive, and some of the before-and-after images from real users suggest a noticeable effect.

For consumers on a budget, Solawave may be a better option since it’s around one-third of the price.
