    The effects of red light have been discussed many times before in the low level light section. I would suggest that you read through some of the older threads as many people are using red light with great success. It appears that as with any treatment there are an odd few who don't get on with it.

    Please correct me if I am wrong but I understand that the omnilux red light treatment is a salon based system. I don't remember anyone on the forum ever being treated by one but any first hand experiences would be welcome.

    I bought the Dimalux, a lower cost therapeutic version to the Omnilux. It works great. The Omnilux and Dimalux are a bit of a hit on the pocket book, but if you can absorb the cost then it's the way to go. Lots of LEDs, flexibility, better coverage, quicker results, a built in fan... all good stuff.

    Here's the link to my Dimalux thread: http://forum.rosaceagroup.org/viewtopic.php?t=4118

    Their new version is a bit sexier, but I like the ergonomics better on my older model.

    So the omnilux is a unit you can use at home? I only remember the name from that rosacea day I went to where they mentioned it in relation to treatment in salon type places.

    Hi Sarah,

    The Omnilux can be used anywhere, you just have to give them money... lots of money. I looked into getting one but the Dimalux was much less expensive (also not as sophisticated looking) but essentially the same machine.

    I was one of the first to get the unit when Dimalux was just starting up and getting these out. My unit is chunky and clunky and crude. And I love it. (The thing cost me about 10,000 US and the CDN dollar was weak at the time so it's a pretty dear price regardless.)

    Ahh I see.

    Yes I can see that for most the price tag would be prohibitive .

    I'm glad you get on well with your dimalux, a good treatment is worth its weight in gold.

    omnilux has a handheld that will be fda approved soon it is blue and red.

    i read the review of red light sorry if i dont understand, but usually v beam and ipl l gets rid of blood vessels thus reduces blood flow,

    red light, although has an anti-infflamamtory healing effect, but why woudl growing new blood vessels and increasing facial blood flow be good. that seems to be the opposite of what you want to do.

    I think that perhaps you should view it another way.

    As I understand it it is believed that low level light normalizes blood vessels the same that it is believed Yag laser does.

    I think that the name Omnilux seems to have some confusion on this thread.

    I would like to see the link to the hand-held version of this:

    Anyone reading this thread, please also read these posts:

    Mills has revealed the source of his information was Dr. Nielsen, a partner of Dr. Nase. The history of Dr. Nase and his vengeance campaign to discredit RLT is briefly covered in the last thread listed above.

    This kind of hooligansim is such a waste of energy.

    PS. I am posting these on all Mills recent threads on this, so the reason for the thread doesn't get lost over time.
