Why all the fuss about EXFOLIATION?

November 29, 2012

Exfoliation is one of the most important yet simple techniques you can perform to resolve a number of skin issues and achieve younger, healthier looking skin.

Exfoliation is the removal of dry, dead skin cells that accumulate on the surface of your skin.  As we age, cell turnover slows down, allowing dead skin cells to accumulate at a faster rate.  The skin begins to look lifeless and dull.  Don’t worry – Omni Cosmetic has a solution for that at our medical spa!

There are two types of Exfoliation: Mechanical and Chemical.


Mechanical – or physical – exfoliation can be achieved by using sponges, facial scrubs, facial brushes (Clarisonic), and machines like with microdermabrasion.  It is the abrasion technique that stimulates the exfoliation process.  At Omni Cosmetic, we offer the Clarisonic Facial brush.  Clarisonic removes SIX times more make-up and cleans your face twice as well. The Clarisonic actively exfoliates your skin and prepares it for a deeper penetration of essential anti-aging skin-care products.


Chemical exfoliation is available in a variety of types.  One of the most gentle is an enzyme mask such as a papaya enzyme mask.  Chemical peels come in various degrees of strength for targeting different skin issues.  Superficial face peels have very little or no downtime.  They can provide dramatic results for middle-aged and older clients who have not been in the practice of exfoliating.  More aggressive peels are also excellent for problem skin.  They help unplug pores and accelerate cell turnover for a wonderfully clear looking complexion.

At Omni Cosmetic’s medical spa we offer a variety of face peels to help your skin achieve its optimal beauty.  Our peels range from virtually no downtime to a few days of mild to moderate peeling.  We can tailor these to accommodate your active schedule.
