Indianapolis-based ETS Tan, the global leader in manufacturing and distributing indoor tanning beds, has partnered with Carlsbad, Calif.- headquartered Photo Therapeutics Inc. the world leader in light therapy, to introduce the new Rejuvasun(TM) with Omnilux(TM).
The Rejuvasun with Omnilux is a commercial-grade spa bed that now features FDA-cleared, medically proven light therapy panels. Consumers have the option to experience full-body tanning and light therapy sessions for the face and neck areas simultaneously, tanning sessions alone or light therapy sessions alone.
"ETS Tan debuted the first-to-the-marketplace Rejuvasun spa bed in late 2006. Now, with the second-generation Rejuvasun with Omnilux, ETS Tan again introduces a marketplace first - an FDA-cleared, medically certified device proven in clinical sessions to rejuvenate the skin, reduce fine lines and wrinkles and stimulate the body to produce collagen and elastin," said ETS Tan CEO Bill Pipp. "We're excited about the opportunity to offer medically proven technology to consumers through salon and spa owners throughout the world."
The original Rejuvasun was well-received by both salons and their customers - more than 150 units of the original spa bed are in use now in salons throughout the U.S.
Light therapy using the Rejuvasun with Omnilux is non invasive, thus causes no pain or downtime. Omnilux Light Therapy uses visible red LED's at 633 nanometer wavelengths and invisible, near-infrared LED's at 830 nanometer wavelengths - a proven combination that is the most effective program for skin improvement - to stimulate the body's natural production of collagen.
According to clinical studies by Photo Therapeutics, which manufactures Omnilux, after just 12 weeks of sessions, nearly 85 percent of users reported improved skin tone while 74 percent of users reported visible reductions of fine lines and wrinkles.
Rejuvasun with Omnilux uses the same technology as its parent device, Photo Therapeutics' Omnilux Light Therapy system, which is used extensively by 3,200 dermatologists and plastic surgeons worldwide.
"Omnilux Light Therapy has many advantages. Through light therapy, or photomodulation, the body stimulates its own cellular mechanisms and improves the firmness of the skin, skin tone and skin clarity," said Sue D'Arcy, president of Photo Therapeutics. "Omnilux therapy is used to treat a wide range of dermatological conditions including acne, photodamage and wound healing after elective surgery."
D'Arcy said the partnership with ETS Tan "allows salon visitors access to the same light therapy treatments they would receive in a dermatologist's office at an affordable price."
The new Rejuvasun with Omnilux will be available for commercial purchase beginning April 28. ETS Tan is accepting pre-orders on its Web site at www.etstan.com .
