PRX-T33 is a medical-grade chemical peel that can rejuvenate your skin without actually causing it to peel. The main ingredient in this innovative peel is trichloroacetic acid (TCA), which is a non-toxic chemical that dries out the top layer of skin to help reveal the tighter, younger skin beneath it. Unlike previous TCA peels, the PRX-T33 doesn’t exfoliate the skin. This makes it gentler and prevents bothersome peeling and flakiness while still being as effective.
Also called the biorevitalization peel, PRX-T33 was initially developed to treat scars on children. It offers an effective treatment with dramatic results and no downtime.
This skin-calming ingredient helps alleviate inflammation and treat hyperpigmentation on the skin’s surface.
Hydrogen peroxide acts as an antiseptic that kills or stops the growth of microbes on the skin. This helps cleanse the skin and keep it free of bacteria.
This ingredient in the PRX-T33 chemical peel is also anti-inflammatory and kills acne-causing bacteria. It cleanses the skin and removes dirt, oil and makeup residue. In addition, trichloroacetic acid stimulates the skin to produce collagen, which has an anti-aging effect by increasing the elasticity of the skin. The result is firmer, smoother, clearer skin.
These three ingredients penetrate the upper skin layer (epidermal layer) and deep down to the basal layer to promote cellular regeneration and remove damaged skin without harming the outer skin layer.
First, your skin is cleansed to remove any dirt, makeup and oil. The PRX-T33 biorevitalization formula is then massaged into your skin with firm upward pressure until it is thoroughly absorbed. Depending on your goals, two to five applications will be completed until skin tightening is noticeable. Once that’s done, we wash and dry your face again and apply a nourishing moisturizer to protect and hydrate your skin.
The entire treatment process takes approximately 30 minutes.
We recommend a series of three or four PRX-T33 treatments for most patients, spaced one to two weeks apart each, for the best skin rejuvenation results.
If you have mild skin laxity and sun damage, two or three sessions may be adequate. Those with severe signs of aging and pigmentation concerns may need four to six treatments to achieve ideal results.
After your treatment, you will notice results in the form of improved skin radiance, firmness and hydration right away. Your full results will become visible after your final treatment session.
A single treatment may provide results for three to four weeks. After the last treatment session in your series, your resulting smoother skin and more even complexion will last for about six to 12 months.
To prolong the results of PRX-T33, many patients schedule maintenance treatments every six months to one year.
The Italian dermo-cosmetic (dermatology and cosmetology) skincare brand WiQo makes PRX-T33. They created this formula and other specialized skin care products in consultation with trained and experienced dermatologists.
This chemical peel is often used to treat signs of aging on the face. It can also be used on the neck, décolletage and even the breasts to help lift and firm the chest.
Along with the recommended application of sunscreen before going outdoors, you will be given a cream to apply to your face at home between your treatment sessions to promote the best results. No other specific aftercare is needed.
This facial peel treatment is completely comfortable and can be described as relaxing for patients; it does not involve any pain or discomfort.
If you’re interested in further skin rejuvenation and enhanced results, we can combine SkinPen® microneedling with your PRX-T33 peel. Microneedling with the SkinPen can improve acne scars, neck wrinkles and your overall complexion for youthful, glowing skin.
In 10 years’ worth of clinical studies, the PRX-T33 trichloroacetic acid peel has been proven highly effective.
This peel has a calming effect on the skin rather than irritating it, so you won’t have any redness or swelling to deal with. No downtime is needed, meaning you can get back to your everyday life immediately after PRX-T33.
Unlike many other peels and cosmetic facial treatments, the PRX-T33 doesn’t make your skin more sensitive to the sun. It’s still best to avoid direct sun exposure, even if you haven’t undergone any treatments, but patients can enjoy fun in the sun after applying sunscreen.
The PRX-T33 biorevitalization peel can be used on patients with any skin type, from very fair pale skin to very dark black or brown skin.
