GLYCOLIC ACID PEEL

Glycolic chemical peels can be used to remove superficial wrinkles and dry patches of skin, as well as to treat sun damage and acne scars. The key benefit is there is no downtime. The procedure may need to be repeated several times in order to achieve the best possible results.

How often is the treatment recommended?
Depending on the condition of the skin, chemical peels can be done as a maintenance treatment to freshen up the skin every 4-8 weeks.

Can it be combined with other treatments?
For a more aggressive treatment, a chemical peel can be combined with microdermabrasion. This is recommended for combination to oily skin types. Your Omni skin specialist will determine if you are a candidate.

What are the contraindications?
You should not have a chemical peel if you have used Accutane in the last year, are on blood thinners, used Retin-A in the last 48 hours, or recently waxed.

How should I prepare for the treatment?
Do not use Retin-A (or other retinoid products) or harsh exfoliators 48 hours prior to your treatment.

What should I expect after the treatment?
Immediately following you treatment your skin will look radiant. Individuals with sensitive skin may experience slight redness. Some dryness, flakiness and/or redness may occur as the dead skin is removed revealing smoother and healthier looking skin.

 

 

PERFECT 10™ PEEL

10 The Perfect 10 Peel is a two-step, medical-grade chemical peel.

  • Pore size
  • Skin roughness
  • Freckles and pigmentary irregularities

The Perfect 10 Peel will maximize exfoliation and gentle peeling away layers of dead skin and aging cells as it helps support collagen production and strengthen the skin.

Immediately following the application your skin may appear yellow in color and look shiny or wet. As with any peel, recovery times will vary. Within 48 hours after the treatment your skin will start to feel tight and actual peeling will begin and may last for 2-3 days. You may experience some redness and swelling. During the peeling time, you will need to keep your skin well moisturized.

In about one week, your skin will look younger and radiantly healthier.

 

 

Salicylic Acid Peel

Salicylic acid, a beta hydroxy acid, is a highly effective superficial peeling agent, oil reducer and pore cleanser. Salicylic acid is one of the most effective ingredients to combat oily and acne prone skin. The high concentration of salicylic acid acts as a peeling agent dissolving the top layer of the epidermis and resurfacing the skin, resulting in a smoother and healthier complexion. The peel is also beneficial for dehydrated/dry and sensitive skin, sun damaged, dull and uneven skin.

How often is the treatment recommended?
Depending on the condition of the skin, chemical peels can be done as a maintenance treatment to help the skin every 4-8 weeks.

What are the contraindications?
You should not have a chemical peel if you have used Accutane in the last year, are on blood thinners, used Retin-A (or other retinoid products) in the last 48 hours, or recently waxed.

How should I prepare for the treatment?
Do not use Retin-A (or other retinoid products) or harsh exfoliators 48 hours prior to your treatment.

What should I expect after the treatment?
Mild flaking could last from 2-5 days on average and may take longer depending on the strength/potency used. Some redness may occur as the dead skin is removed revealing smoother, healthier skin.

FAQ’s

Q. How is the ViPeel different from other peels?
A. Peels of the past have emphasized the “no pain, no gain” approach to skincare. Deeper more painful peels with extended downtime were thought to produce better results. The ViPeel is painless, yet produces dramatic, visible results in just days.

Q. Does the ViPeel make the skin thinner?
A. No. By sloughing off old cells, skin renews itself at a faster rate. The skin actually thickens because the dermal matrix is stimulated to make more collagen and elastin.

Q. How many treatments are required to show visible results?
A. A single ViPeel will achieve significant repair and impart a healthy glow to the skin. However, several treatments may be necessary to obtain a client’s ultimate goal.

Q. Does it burn?
A. Clients will feel a slight tingling sensation for a few seconds which subsides almost immediately. The peel is applied topically, with numbing of the skin taking place after the first pass.

Q. When will I begin to peel?
A. The skin peeling, which is a light, fluffy peel, will start on day 3 (and usually around the mouth area as one is constantly moving these muscles) and generally be finished by day 4-5. The peeling is easily hidden by moisturizer. Depending on the client’s skin, in some cases, the peel is virtually invisible.

Q. What other areas besides the face can the ViPeel be performed on?
A. The neck, décolleté and hands all respond well to the ViPeel.

Q. What about normal activities following the ViPeel?
There are no restrictions. Normal activities may be resumed immediately after the peel, however, activities that may cause sweating should be avoided for 72-96 hours.
