I have melasma on my upper cheeks/under eye area, will the omnilux LED machine aggravate this?
Doctor Answers 2
No. Omnilux will not aggravate melasma.
No, the wavelength does not stimulate pigmentation, however, as suggested by Dr Melamed, Omnilux will do very little for lines and wrinkles. I do use Omnilux, only to treat acne or as a light to activate porphyrins - PDT. All the best, Dr Davin Lim. Brisbane. Australia.
Since Omnilux treatments are with LED and not laser, it will not aggravate your melasma.
As a professional physician, however, I should inform you that LED treatments are not the first choice by an experienced doctor to treat fine lines & wrinkles. You should also know that it requires multiple treatments. Talk to your doctor about that and see what other optimal options may be available to treat fine lines and wrinkles.
