What is PRX-T33 Peeling?

The PRX-T33 peel is an innovative method of bioche­mical stimu­lation of the skin. It is a highly effective, advanced, and painless treatment that does not use needles and does not damage the skin. The non-invasive procedure is effective but gentle, as it does not cause skin peeling or redness. The result is a smoothing and tightening of the tissues — a rejuve­nating effect, which is visible immediately after the treatment. Not only are wrinkles reduced, but scars and pigmen­tation disorders are clearly improved by the brigh­tening effect. The treatment is even suitable in the summer months, as no photo­sen­si­ti­sation is caused by the PRX-T33 formula.

Advan­tages of PRX-T33 Peeling

What are the advan­tages of PRX-T33 Peeling? 

The PRX-T33 peel triggers biore­vi­ta­li­sation of the skin without aggressive peeling. It is a gentle method that promotes skin rejuve­nation without stressing the skin itself. The following benefits are associated with PRX-T33 therapy:

  1. Immediately after treatment, improved skin texture with long-lasting effects: The active ingre­dients deeply penetrate the skin (dermis). In the process, the overlying, outer layer of skin (epidermis) is regene­rated. This leads to the stimu­lation of new collagen and elastin growth which makes the skin look firmer. The treatment also improves circulation and leaves the skin looking fresh.
  2. Painless treatment: PRX-T33 is a bioche­mical peel that does not use needles or injec­tions. The formula is applied directly to the skin and massaged in. It is a non-ablative treatment that does not cause redness or bruising, but activates the regene­ration process of the outer layer of the skin (epidermis).
  3. No downtime: thanks to the innovative formula, the peeling is not an exfoli­ating procedure. The skin is neither reddened nor sensitive after the treatment. Social activities can be resumed after the session without any restrictions.
  4. Safe year-round: the peeling does not cause photo­sen­si­ti­sation - hence the treatment can be performed even in the summer months without risking pigmen­tation disorders.
  5. Multiple effects: PRX-T33 peeling achieves visible impro­ve­ments in 
    • the elimi­nation of pigment spots or melasma
    • sunken scars,
    • large pores or
    • sagging skin and wrinkles

Other benefits include: 

  • No anaes­thesia required
  • No incision and no scars
  • Well-tolerated in sensitive skin
  • Can be combined with radio frequency micro­needling or mesotherapy
  • Has a cleansing, antibac­terial, and anti-inflammatory effect

Who should not get PRX-T33 therapy? 

The treatment is not recom­mended in case of:

  • Skin rashes, skin diseases (e.g. herpes, eczema, neuro­der­ma­titis), irritated skin
  • Allergy to kojic acid (risk of itching) or latex
  • Patients under­going certain treat­ments (e.g. Roaccutane, photo­sen­si­tising drugs)
  • When pregnant or breastfeeding

Who will benefit from PRX-T33 Peeling?

PRX-T33 peeling is suitable for all skin types and tanning levels. The solution does not cause photo­sen­si­ti­sation and is therefore safe for skin types that tend towards hyper­pig­men­tation. The treatment can even be applied on darker skin and has no counter indica­tions for use in the summer months. The treatment is very gentle and allows you to resume everyday activities immediately after­wards, without recovery time.

Is PRX-T33 Peeling suitable for women and men?

The peeling is beneficial for both men and women. The treatment is recom­mended for anyone who wants tighter skin, a fresher complexion with finer pores, and reduction of scars, hyper­pig­men­tation, or wrinkles.

What are the requi­re­ments for a successful PRX-T33 Peeling?

Before the treatment, a consul­tation is conducted and the patient’s skin is analysed. The consultant should be informed of any illness, current treat­ments, or medication.

Optimal results are reached after several treat­ments. Best outcomes are achieved when combined with RF Micro­needling, Genius Lifting or Mesotherapy. The consultant will be able to suggest the right combi­nation on an individual basis.

In which cases is PRX-T33 Peeling not recommended?

The treatment is not suitable for skin experi­encing irrita­tions, rashes, allergies or damage. It is not recom­mended for easily irritated skin or anyone taking certain photo­sen­si­tising medica­tions. The treatment is also not recom­mended for anyone with an allergy to kojic acid or latex.

Is PRX-T33 Peeling suitable during pregnancy?

The treatment is not recom­mended during pregnancy and lactation.

What areas can be treated with PRX-T33 Peeling?

The active ingre­dient is applied to the face, neck and décolleté.

When you are in our office for your treatment, we can also discuss other possible areas that could benefit from this procedure. We offer free consul­ta­tions so you can learn more about your options before deciding if PRX-T33 Peeling is right for you. Our goal is always to provide our clients with the best experience possible.

PRX-T33 procedure: How does a PRX-T33 Peeling proceed?

1. Preli­minary discussion /​consul­tation:

At the beginning of the first session, our expert will have a consul­tation with you. During this consul­tation, we will determine your desired result and treatment area, as well as whether the PRX-T33 Peeling is suitable for you. We will inform you about possible risks and the realistic results you can expect. Then, before starting, we will agree on the type and duration of PRX-T33 therapy to achieve optimal results.

2. Before the treatment: 

After the consul­tation, the session is started. The area to be treated - face, neck and/​or décolleté - is cleaned and dried. Please – if possible for at least two hours before the treatment do not apply heavy creams and make-up.

3. During treatment:

The PRX-T33 solution is a gel that is applied to the skin and massaged in until it is completely absorbed. This procedure is repeated up to three times. After this procedure, the skin is cleaned and patted dry. Then a mask with revita­lising active ingre­dients is applied, which can penetrate even better into the deeper skin layer due to the treatment. After 10 minutes the mask is washed off and a moistu­rising day cream is applied and the skin looks soothed, fresh and firm.

4. After the treatment:

After the treatment you immediately look fresher, the skin is smoother and has better blood circulation. You can go about your desired activities immediately after the treatment and are not limited in any way. However, you should repeat your next PRX-T33 peeling at the earliest after one week.

If you experience skin irritation, itching or other problems after the treatment, you can contact us at any time. We are here for you.

What to expect with PRX-T33 Peeling?

The results are very individual, as the success of the treatment depends on the initial situation of the skin texture and the desired result. Our treatment experience shows that the skin has signi­fi­cantly finer pores, pigmentary disorders such as age spots, melasma and sun spots are signi­fi­cantly reduced or disappear completely.

In the case of scars, the result depends on the size and depth of the scars and can vary depending on the duration of treatment. An impro­vement is evident for most patients after the first treatment. For optimal results, we recommend a series of at least two to three sessions.

Does PRX-T33 Peeling help against stretch marks?

Yes. According to examples, the solution is also effective against stretch marks. We treat primarily face, neck and décolleté. If you would like to treat other zones on the body, you are welcome to contact us and we will invite you for consul­tation and treatment.

How does PRX-T33 treatment work?

The PRX-T33 ingre­dient is a proprietary formula and contains the combi­nation TCA (33%) and hydrogen peroxide (67%), which is often used in peeling formulas. In PRX-T33 solution, this combi­nation works differ­ently than in classic chemical peelings. The product is applied to cleansed and dry skin and massaged in using a specific technique, allowing the trichlo­roacetic acid (TCA) to penetrate the skin and rapidly stimulate skin regene­ration in the deeper layers. This biore­vi­ta­li­sation stimu­lation is used to build an extra­cel­lular matrix to optimise cellular activity, thus promoting collagen and elastin production.

The hydrogen peroxide contained in the solution is inhibited at the skin surface so that the skin is not damaged. Therefore, it is a non-ablative method - the outer layer of skin remains undamaged and does not peel off.

In addition, kojic acid, has antibac­terial and anti-inflammatory effects. It inhibits the enzyme for melanin production and thus causes the reduction of age and pigment spots.

The peeling works from the inside out smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, visibly shrinking pores and levelling sunken scars. It moistu­rises the skin and gives it back more elasticity.

How does PRX-T33 Peeling feel and is it painful?

PRX-T33 treatment is not painful. The gel is applied in several layers and massaged in. As a result, the skin has better blood circulation and you may feel a slight tingling sensation. Our patients report feeling very comfor­table and relaxed during the treatment.

What are the possible risks and side effects of PRX-T33 Peeling?

After PRX-T33 therapy, the regene­ration phase of the skin begins. Sunbathing and solarium visits should be avoided for the first three days after treatment. Redness and a burning sensation may also appear. These side effects are rather rare, but can occur depending on the sensitisation.

Except in rare cases, circulation is increased after the treatment but will not appear signi­fi­cantly reddened or strongly irritated.

We will be happy to advise you before your treatment about potential risks and whether the PRX-T33 Peeling is suitable for you.

How long does the recovery take?

PRX-T33 Peeling does not require any recovery downtime. You will have an immediate glow effect after the treatment - your skin will look fresh and radiant!

Can I do sports after the PRX-T33 Peeling?

Yes. You can resume your normal activities as usual after PRX-T33 treatment.

How long is the skin sensitive after PRX-T33 treatment?

The skin is not injured by the treatment but the process of regene­ration requires an interval of at least 7-10 days prior to repeating the treatment.

How long does it take to see results with the PRX-T33 Peeling?

Immediately after the treatment you will have a much firmer, better perfused and moistu­rised skin. Lines, crow's feet or other wrinkles will be refined. You will get an immediate glow effect, so the treatment is especially popular in prepa­ration for an occasion or event.

Melasma and hyper­pig­men­tation may disappear after 1 to 3 treat­ments. For the refinement of sunken scars, experience shows that 5 to 6 sessions are needed. The results depend very indivi­dually on the condition and tolerance of the skin.

We recommend repeating the treat­ments at intervals of 7-10 days, if several sessions are planned.

You should note that even if the results are visible immediately after the treatment, the regene­ration process is ongoing. The final results are long-lasting and may appear eight to ten weeks later, depending on the intensity and duration of treatment.

Feel free to book a free consul­tation appointment so we can discuss how many treat­ments you will need to achieve your desired results. This will also allow us to estimate the time frame when you can expect the achie­vement of your desired result.

Can I enhance the PRX-T33 results with additional peeling treatments?

Yes. However, we recommend further peels after one week at the earliest, so that the skin has time to regenerate. In addition, radio­fre­quency micro needling treat­ments and mesotherapy are suitable methods to complement the PRX-T33 peeling and thus achieve even better results.

How long do the results of PRX-T33 Peeling last?

Scar mitigating results are generally permanent. The elasticity of the skin is signi­fi­cantly improved and the aging process is slowed. Hyper­pig­men­tation can be reduced or perma­nently disappear - but this depends strongly on the cause of discolouration.

How many sessions are needed?

Depending on each individual’s goals, 3 to 6 treat­ments are recom­mended. The treatment success is very individual and depends on the respective skin texture and the desired result.

We offer free consul­ta­tions and are happy to talk with you about whether PRX therapy is right for you and an estimate of how many treat­ments are necessary for you to get the beautiful skin you want.

How long does a PRX-T33 Peeling treatment last?

A typical treatment lasts about 45 minutes to an hour.

Other advan­tages over other methods:

  • No downtime
  • Painless and no surgery necessary
  • Consi­stent, long-lasting results especially for scars and pigment spots
  • Can be used for all skin types and in summer
  • Improved blood circulation
  • Antimi­crobial effect

When and how was PRX-T33 Peeling discovered?

PRX-T33 was developed in Italy by renowned derma­to­logist Dr. Rossana Castellana and has been patent-protected since 2014. The product is approved for use in over 40 countries, including large parts of the EU, Australia, Japan and the USA.

PRX Therapy results from years of research in the field of derma­tology. The innovative formula contains the combi­nation of trichlo­roacetic acid (TCA) and hydrogen peroxide (H202). The revita­li­sation of tissues by TCA, among others, was published by the Skin Stress Response System (SSRS) in a scien­tific journal in 2012. It describes collagen regene­ration by TCA.
