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.
WHAT ARE CHEMICAL PEELS?
Chemical peels are exfoliating treatments that remove outer skin layers, leaving softer, smoother skin behind. Treatment is performed using a chemical solution customized to your unique skin type and the concerns you want to address during your procedure. At Omni Centers, we offer a variety of formulations and strengths in chemical peels that allow us to tailor your treatment to your specific needs. A chemical peel is a technique which involves the application of a variety of chemical solutions to remove the damaged outer layers of dead skin cells from the skin’s surface. It is extremely beneficial for many skin conditions such as: hyper-pigmentation, rosacea, acne, sun damage, and photo aging.
By removing the build-up of dead skin cells and stimulating the regenerative process, you will notice marked improvements in the following: formation of wrinkles and fine lines, texture and tone of the skin, hydration, reduced pore size, and clearing of blemishes.
WHAT DO THEY TREAT?
In addition to acting as a general exfoliation treatment, a chemical peel can also treat the following skin concerns:
Uneven skin texture and tone
Hyperpigmentation and age spots
Fine lines and facial creases
Shallow acne scarring
Sun damage and photo aging
Acne and rosacea
Your skin will experience a more balanced production of oils and an overall healthier appearance.
WHAT IS THE PROCEDURE LIKE?
Chemical peels vary in treatment times, based on the depth of the peel used. Most peels can be performed easily in under one hour. After the skin is cleansed, the peel solution is applied to the skin and left on for a prescribed amount of time. A neutralizing agent may be applied before the peel is removed. Patients may return to regular activities right away after a light peel, although deeper peels may require a recovery period of up to one week.
WHAT KIND OF RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?
After a light peel, you will notice visibly smoother and refreshed skin right away. Skin may turn slightly pink after treatment, but this will subside within a few hours. Deeper peels will cause the skin to flake and peel for a few days, before the final results are evident. Special skin care products will likely be recommended to promote healing and enhance the final results. Lighter peels will need to be repeated more frequently to maintain desired results, while deeper peels may only need to be performed every year or two.
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.
