Skin rejuvenation comes in many different guises and skin peels like the PRX T33 Peel is a great way to improve skin tone and texture.
The new breed of chemical peels has been formulated to infuse the skin, build collagen and generally improve skin tone. They are also quick, pain-free, and because they’re not photosensitising, they can be done all year round, even in the summer months and there are no needles involved.
At Elixir Cosmetics we are proud to offer PRX T33 Peel – a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that aims to improve a number of issues within the skin. Don’t forget, as well as skin peel treatments like this and ZO peel we also offer Botox and dermal fillers.
The PRX T33 treatment rejuvenates the skin from the bottom up, giving amazing stimulation and results. At Elixir Cosmetics we use this skin peel because it offers our patients the best results with no downtime. As well as improving the skin this type of peel offers instant results.
This skin peel offers immediate results with no down-time. It combats lines and lax skin without damaging and is great on stretch marks as it rebuilds from underneath. It can reduce scars from acne and can reduce pigmentation (melisma) but also works wonders in combination with IPL rejuvenation.
It’s suitable for both male and female patients who wish to get more vibrant looking skin. A full consultation is required to see which peel is most suitable for you.
The skin is prepared with mild cleanser, rinsed and dried thoroughly. Around 2 ml of the facial peeling solution is applied per area, by manual deep facial massage.
This is repeated 2-5 times (usually 3), on each area of the face / neck / décolletage. We then massage the product firmly until it is absorbed and a palpable or visible elasticity is observed. Moisturiser can be applied SPF should be worn to protect against free radicals in the environment.
The peel penetrates the deeper layers of the skin, without damaging the outer surface. You get all the benefits of the TCA (trichloroacetic acid) without the downtime. TCA stimulates the skin to produce elastin and collagen, the two factors which cause ageing as we slowly reduce our ability to make fresh collagen and elastin.
With PRX T33, a combination of TCA and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) quickly penetrates the dermis (one of the skin’s layers), activating a process of regeneration without attacking the epidermis (the outer layer of skin).
The PRX T33 solution contains 33% TCA and 67% hydrogen peroxide. PRX T33 promotes stimulation of fibroblasts and growth factors without causing inflammation or damaging the skin.
The treatment can be performed at any time of year, unlike peeling, because it is not photosensitising, and it is suitable for all skin types. A course of these peels is incredibly effective.
It’s a popular type of skin rejuvenation treatment and has been used for decades. For some patients, a combination of facial rejuvenation treatments may be the best solution, so it’s vital you book a consultation.
No but skin can be sensitive after treatment. There may be some redness, or tenderness which should settle within hours. Makeup should not be worn for a few days, ideally, to let the skin settle.
The treatment takes about 20 – 40 minutes and you may experience a mild tingling sensation. The skin will look smoother, tighter, and healthier.
There are instant results visible from the very first treatment. Repeat peels may be required to maintain the results.
