What is a PRX-T33 Biorevitalization Peel?
A biorevitalization peel (PRX-T33) is a skin tightening peel without exfoliation. Designed for improving stretch marks and sagging skin, PRX-T33 is an excellent treatment during the summer months when traditional chemical peels cannot be performed due to the risk of sun exposure, heat and sweat or when the downtime of exfoliation with traditional peels is inconvenient.
PRX-T33 is suitable for men and women who are looking to tighten loose skin on the face and body, lighten pigmentation and improve the appearance of acne scars and stretch marks.
How Does The PRX-T33 Biorevitalization Peel Work?
PRX-T33 contains 33% trichloroacetic acid (TCA) combined with hydrogen peroxide and kojic acid. This formulation provides all the benefits of a high percentage TCA peel without the downtime and associated side effects of discomfort and peeling seen with traditional chemical peels.
TCA is a derivative of vinegar which has long been used to exfoliate the skin and to reduce the appearance of fine lines.
Hydrogen peroxide in low concentrations helps to promote wound healing and regulate inflammation.
Kojic acid is an effective skin lightener and depigmentation agent. Kojic acid plays an important role in inhibiting post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
The additives of kojic acid and hydrogen peroxide to the PRX-T33 help to control the TCA by causing it to bypass the epithelium allowing for the reduction of fine lines without discomfort and peeling of the skin. This makes the PRX-T33 treatment an ideal treatment for those looking to improve loose skin and pigmentation and scarring without the downtime of traditional chemical peels.

How Is A PRX-T33 Biorevitalization Treatment Performed?
The treatment area is cleansed and a prep solution is applied. The PRX-T33 is then massaged into the skin using a firm, upward pressure until it is absorbed by the skin. Depending on the area being treated, 2-4 layers of PRX-T33 are applied until we see the skin begin to tighten. The PRX is washed off with water and then a moisturizer is applied.
