The Art of Skin Transformation
As the largest organ of the body, our skin takes a beating. Sun damage and exposure to the elements, not to mention the natural progression of the aging process, give way to sagging skin and the formation of facial wrinkles and other visible concerns. Some patients require full skin rejuvenation to reverse some of those issues and produce a healthier, more vibrant complexion. Omni Centers offers chemical peels as one option for a full skin rejuvenation treatment.
After a consultation a protocol will be selected based on your goals and what the skin is presenting. Any peel that goes into the intra-epidermal layer must also use the recommended home care. Its often beneficial to do a peel series over the course of several weeks to receive optimal results.
Treatments can provide benefits in the following ways:
- Increase blood circulation
- Reduces sebum and minimizes skin congestion
- Soften scar tissue
- Stimulates collagen production
- Uneven skin texture and tone
- Hyperpigmentation and age spots
- Fine lines and facial creases
- Shallow acne scarring
- Enlarged pores
- Sun damage and photo aging
- Acne and rosacea
- One week before the peel avoid waxing, electrolysis, deploritory creams, and laser hair removal.
- Two to three days before the peel discontinue using any prescription topicals such as Retin-A, differin or Tazorac, as well as any products containing retinol, alpha hydroxyl acids (AHA), beta hydroxyl acids (BHA) or benzoyl peroxide.
- Patients who have had any medical cosmetic facial treatments or procedures such as Laser treatments, cosmetic fillers or other surgical procedures should wait until skin sensitivity has completely resolved before receiving a peel.
- Active cold sores, herpes simplex or warts in the area to be treated
- Wounded, sunburned or excessively sensitive skin
- Accutane use within the last year
- History of recent chemotherapy or radiation therapy
- Allergies to aspirin
- Women who are pregnant or actively breastfeeding
- Patients with Vitiligo
- Patients with a history of autoimmune disease (such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, lupus, multiple sclerosis etc) or any condition that may weaken their immune system
