WiQO PRX-T33 Treatment from U.S. Dermatology Partners

CALM Glow, the No-Peel Chemical Peel Skin Tightening Treatment Powered by PRX-T33

It’s no secret that skin peels are a popular cosmetic dermatology solution to improve the skin’s general health and appearance, but the itchy, dry, peeling skin that occurs in the aftermath is less than ideal. Enter WiQO PRX-T33 (also known as CALM Glow). This innovative treatment powered by PRX-T33 offers the beautiful results possible with chemical skin peels without the peel. You can learn more about WiQO PRX-T33 (CALM Glow) treatment on this page or by scheduling a consultation with a U.S. Dermatology Partners location in your area.

What Is WiQO PRX-T33 (CALM Glow)?

We all want youthful, healthy skin that looks and feels great, but treatments like chemical peels can be uncomfortable. Skin peels can also leave people feeling embarrassed to show their faces until after the skin stops peeling. WiQO PRX-T33 (CALM Glow) offers the same skin revitalization possible with chemical peels, but it allows patients to skip over the peeling part. Instead, CALM Glow delivers tighter, smoother, healthier-looking skin without the same level of irritation or inflammation.

Powered by the PRX-T33 formula, this innovative treatment was originally created to treat scarring in children. Because it’s safe enough for use on young children, CALM Glow can be applied to address almost any skin concern in adults on even the most sensitive areas of the skin. The epidermis, the protective outer layer of skin, that flakes away after traditional peels and other similar treatments, is completely bypassed by CALM Glow. Instead, this treatment improves the skin’s vitality by activating the deeper dermis and basal layers of the skin to deliver healthy, beautiful results.

No cosmetic dermatology treatment is right for every patient, but CALM Glow is beneficial for just about any issue related to the skin’s health and appearance. This no-peel, also called a reverse peel, treatment offers brighter, tighter, hydrated skin.

Some of the many benefits of CALM Glow treatment include:

  • Combining trichloroacetic acid (TCA), kojic acid, and hydrogen peroxide for maximum effect with minimal discomfort
  • Safe and effective for all skin tones, types, and textures
  • Can be used to specifically target a wide variety of skin health concerns and cosmetic flaws from laxity, scars, and wrinkles to uneven skin tone and textures
  • May be effectively applied to almost any area of the face and body
  • Does not create photosensitivity, making it easier to administer year-round and minimizing the risk of an adverse response
  • Improves the appearance of skin immediately and stimulates the skin’s natural healing processes for long-term regenerative results
  • Men and women of all ages can receive CALM Glow treatment safely

Who is a Good Candidate for WiQO PRX-T33 (CALM Glow)?

As mentioned in the previous section, one of the best things about CALM Glow treatment is that it’s beneficial for people of all ages and skin types, and it’s versatile enough to create dramatic results when applied to the treatment of almost any cosmetic flaw or skin health issues. Most importantly, the CALM Glow treatment rejuvenates the skin, offering a health benefit for almost any patient.

The only people who should not receive CALM Glow treatment are those who are pregnant or breastfeeding, allergic to any of the ingredients of CALM Glow, have fresh wounds or sores in the area being treated, have a current infection, and those who have very sensitive skin.

How Does WiQO PRX-T33 (CALM Glow) Treatment Work?

The unique combination of ingredients in CALM Glow offers beautiful results by penetrating deep into the dermal and basal layers of skin to stimulate total rejuvenation and healing while promoting cell turnover and general skin health. The treatment itself is powered by the innovative PRX-T33 formula. Each of the active ingredients has a unique role to play in the treatment process, delivering exceptional results.

Specifically, the ingredients perform the following functions:

  • Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) – makes up 33% of the formula. It is an active ingredient used for exfoliation in many chemical peels, but it also stimulates the growth of fibroblasts (the body’s main connective tissue cells) and it has anti-inflammatory properties. It also destroys bacteria, microbes, and microscopic dirt and debris that buildup within the pores.
  • Kojic acid – is a brightening agent that suppresses melanin production. This makes it great for improving skin tone, decreasing pigmentation, and generally delivering brighter, healthier-looking skin.
  • Hydrogen peroxide – the oxygen released when hydrogen peroxide is applied to skin lifts out particles, cleaning the surface layers and penetrating deeply to clean the skin gently. It also makes skin cells more sensitive to the other ingredients, maximizing their effectiveness.

The treatment itself is simple and painless. Your dermatologist will thoroughly clean the skin. Then, the PRX-T33 powered CALM Glow solution is applied and massaged into the skin until it’s fully absorbed. Several applications of the CALM Glow solution will be performed in the same session. Typically, patients receive between two and five applications, depending on their individual treatment plan. Following the applications, the skin will be washed. Then, a deep moisture treatment is applied.

The entire CALM Glow treatment session usually lasts about 30 to 45 minutes, depending on the area being treated. Most patients report little to no discomfort during the procedure. There may be some mild tingling or itching, but it should be bearable without the need for any numbing or local anesthetic.

Are There Side Effects to WiQO PRX-T33 (CALM Glow) Treatment?

The side effects of CALM Glow are minimal, especially compared with other skin peels. Immediately following the procedure, your skin may be warm, reddened, and slightly inflamed for a few hours. Unlike chemical and laser peels, your skin is significantly less likely to peel, but some peeling does happen, especially in areas where the skin is thick. Areas where the skin is sensitive (like the skin around the eyes) may experience some mild swelling. All side effects of CALM Glow improve within a few days to a week.

How Long Will WiQO PRX-T33 (CALM Glow) Treatment Last?

The number of treatment sessions needed will vary depending on the desired goal and what skin condition is being addressed.The number of treatment sessions needed will vary depending on the desired goal and what skin condition is being addressed.

  • For general improvement in skin appearance, tightening, reversing photoaging, or improving skin tone – 1 session a week for three to four weeks
  • Hyperpigmentation, freckling, and dark spots – 1 session a month until desired results are achieved
