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 PRX Derm Perfexion, formerly WiQO PRX-T33 (also known as CALM Glow). This innovative treatment offers the beautiful results possible with chemical skin peels without the peel. You can learn more about PRX Derm Perfexion treatment on this page or by scheduling a consultation with a U.S. Dermatology Partners location in your area.
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. PRX Derm Perfexion offers the same skin revitalization possible with chemical peels, but it allows patients to skip over the peeling part. Instead, PRX Derm Perfexion delivers tighter, smoother, healthier-looking skin without the same level of irritation or inflammation.
The PRX Derm Perfexion formula was originally created to treat scarring in children. Because it’s safe enough for use on young children, PRX Derm Perfexion 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 PRX Derm Perfexion. 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 PRX Derm Perfexion 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 PRX Derm Perfexion treatment include:
As mentioned in the previous section, one of the best things about PRX Derm Perfexion 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 PRX Derm Perfexion treatment rejuvenates the skin, offering a health benefit for almost any patient.
The only people who should not receive PRX Derm Perfexion treatment are those who are pregnant or breastfeeding, allergic to any of the ingredients of PRX Derm Perfexion, have fresh wounds or sores in the area being treated, have a current infection, and those who have very sensitive skin.
The unique combination of ingredients in PRX Derm Perfexion 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 Derm Perfexion 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:
The treatment itself is simple and painless. Your dermatologist will thoroughly clean the skin. Then, the PRX Derm Perfexion solution is applied and massaged into the skin until it’s fully absorbed. Several applications of the PRX Derm Perfexion 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 PRX Derm Perfexion 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.
The side effects of PRX Derm Perfexion 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 PRX Derm Perfexion improve within a few days to a week.
The number of treatment sessions needed will vary depending on the desired goal and what skin condition is being addressed.
Specifically, your dermatologist may recommend the following PRX Derm Perfexion treatment plans:
For some conditions like scarring and stretch marks, one course of treatment should be permanent. For the treatment of acne, chronic skin conditions, and general improvement in skin health and appearance, a series of PRX Derm Perfexion treatment sessions should be repeated at least once a year. During your introductory consultation visit, your dermatologist will create a customized treatment plan to address your unique situation.
