WHAT IS AN OMG FACIAL™?
The OMG Facial™ is a designer procedure trademarked by Dr. Rumer in which the Rejuvapen™, coupled with Protein Rich Plasma (PRP), is used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reverse sun damage, and remove acne scarring while improving the skin’s tone and texture. The results will make you say “OMG!”
WHAT SHOULD I KNOW?
The OMG Facial™ utilizes the Rejuvapen™, the most powerful microneedling system available, in combination with your body’s own platelet rich plasma (PRP) to re-energize cells and boost collagen production. PRP is first applied topically to the skin followed by aeration of the skin with the Rejuvapen™, a process in which the skin is perforated with near microscopic holes, which allows for a transdermal delivery of the PRP. The growth factors in the PRP re-energize cells to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scarring while improving the skin’s tone and texture. Following the Rejuvapen™, a second layer of PRP is applied allowing for maximum benefit. When patients see the overall improvement in the tone, texture and quality of their skin, that’s when we hear “OMG!”… thus the OMG Facial™.
WHAT DOES THE PROCEDURE INVOLVE?
The patient will be placed in a comfortable position. Topical anesthetic cream will be applied to the face. The patient’s blood will then be drawn and centrifuged to produce PRP with all of its wonderful growth factors. We are now ready to begin the facial. The Rejuvapen™ uses its nine precisely spaced microneedles to create invisible, vertical microperforations to aerate your skin. At the same time, the PRP is applied to your skin and the microneedling process forces the growth factors deep into your skin. The growth factors in the PRP re-energize cells to create a more youthful appearance. Once the process has been performed on your entire face, the remaining PRP will be applied to your skin for a further boost. The results will make you look in the mirror and say “OMG!”
HOW LONG IS RECOVERY AND WHEN CAN I RESUME MY NORMAL ACTIVITIES?
There is really no down time. The procedure typically takes about 40 minutes. Afterward, you will be slightly red and you may have some peeling skin. Patients can apply make-up immediately after the procedure and get back to their usual daily activities. We recommend that you stay out of the sun for the first three days and use a sunblock (UPF 50 or greater) whenever you are outdoors.
