1. PRX T-33 WHAT IS THE PRX-T33® CHEMICAL PEEL
The PRX-T33® chemical peel is an innovative peeling developed by the Italian company WiQo Med, which almost does not affect the surface layer of the skin, and therefore does not require a long recovery period. Based on the intensity of exposure to the skin, it refers to the median peels.
This means that it does not removes the toughened skin only, but penetrates deep inside, acts on the epidermal skin layer down to the basal layer, stimulating it to actively renew and regenerate.
Due to the unique composition of PRX-T33®, the solution very quickly, almost instantly penetrates the dermis, activates all the processes of skin regeneration/ renewal, however, does not damage the epidermis at all.
COMPOSITION OF THE PRX-T33®CHEMICAL PEEL
The PRX-T33® chemical peel is an improved formula of the trichloroacetic acid (TCA) peel.
Each molecule of PRX-T33® contains a unique combination of 33% TCA, hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and 5% kojic acid. Due to this, PRX-T33® is not as "aggressive" as pure TCA.
Action of the main components of the PRX-T33®chemical peel on the skin:
Trichloroacetic acid 33%. It stimulates the growth of fibroblasts in the skin, at the same time it has an anti-inflammatory effect, effectively cleans pores from accumulated cutaneous fat, debris of cosmetics and micro particles of dirt, destroys pathogenic bacteria that cause acne formation, and increases the elasticity of the dermis.
Hydrogen peroxide 3%. It has a strong antiseptic effect on the treated area of the skin. Upon contact with the epidermis, hydrogen peroxide promotes the release of a huge amount of oxygen, which mechanically cleans the skin surface from all types of contaminants. In addition, hydrogen peroxide fills skin cells with pure oxygen which increases the sensitivity of receptors.
Kojic acid. The main purpose of this component is to brighten the treated area of the face. The chemical composition of this acid suppresses the production of melanin. Formerly, it was used to eliminate pigmentation, freckles, to remove traces of post-acne, chickenpox, small scars and cicatrices. This way a long and painful procedure turned into a quick and painless one.
INDICATIONS FOR THE USE OF THE PRX-T33®CHEMICAL PEEL
This type of peeling can solve many problems with the skin, but the key recommendations for the peeling are the following signs:
Acne – as an alternative to conventional cosmetic products for cleansing the facial skin (the skin becomes smoother, the process of removing black dots, pimples and purulent elements starts);
• Loss of firmness of face and chest;
• Post-inflammatory spots after acne;
• Atrophic scars; • Stretching of various depths;
• Auxiliary agent in the treatment of melasma and skin hypopigmentation; • Seborrheic dermatitis;
• Hyperkeratosis of facial skin;
• Prevention and treatment of facial skin photoaging; ADVANTAGES OF THE PRX-T33® CHEMICAL PEEL:
• The procedure is painless;
• Absence of rehabilitation period (on the skin there is no peeling, redness, edema);
• Suitable for all types of skin;
• There are no age restrictions;
• Available all year round (no need to wait for the cold season and reduced solar activity);
• Pronounced bright effect after the first session, which persists for a long time;
• Lack of photosensitivity after the procedure. In a couple of days you can safely sunbathe and not be afraid of age spots.
EFFECT OF THE PRX-T33® CHEMICAL PEELING PROCEDURE
• Compaction and tonification of the dermis deep layer (due to this the face oval will have a more precise contour);
• Normalisation of the sebaceous glands and significant reduction in pores (the gloss disappears, the cleansing dries out the facial skin);
• There is an easy pull-up effect (lifting);
• Strengthening the effect of injection procedures;
• Bleaching of the skin (a significant reduction in all types of pigmentation and freckles);
• Treatment of photoaging;
• Alignment of the tone and structure of the face (the skin becomes fresher, traces of acne, chicken pox, small scars, cicatrices completely disappear).
Yellow Peel is an important, and somewhat recent, addition to a wide range of antipigmentation solutions. It is an efficacious reversal method against hyperpigmentation caused by sun exposure, photoageing or scars. Being a quick-recovery peel, it is an excellent choice for individuals who wish to avoid social downtime. As a progressive peel – which means its effect increases with the number of layers applied – it provides an early line of action preceding the deeper laser-based approaches. It delivers the benefits of more aggressive peels without the reddening and swelling associated with them.
Within a few hours after treatment, microcirculation increases, oxygen supply to the skin improves and supply of nourishing substances is enhanced as skin turns more receptive.
How Yellow Peel works
Although its physical form as a peel would make it appear to be a superficial treatment, Yellow Peel actually works at a deep cellular level, influencing the action of receptors and sensors.
Each of its key ingredients performs a specific set of actions that add up to the overall impact of the Yellow Peel. In totality, it reverses discolouration, blocks melanin production and supports renewal.
Retinoic acid stimulates the proliferation of new skin cells and controls the secretion of sebum. Kojik, phytic and azelaic acids bring to the blend their individual antibacterial and antioxidant properties. Each has its unique way of intervening in enzymatic processes, to effectively block the synthesis of melanin and its transfer to the surface of the skin. Stabilised Vitamin C (ascorbyl palmitate) stimulates the synthesis of neocollagen while also contributing its anti-oxidising properties. Bisabolol adds antiinflammatory and antiseptic action.
While the cellular processes seem quite complex, the treatment is surprisingly simple. Yellow Peel treatment starts with another peel – a superficial one – aimed at preparing the outermost layer of dead skin, the stratum corneum on the epidermis. The Yellow Peel is then applied and left to act on the skin for a period of about 12 hours. This procedure is repeated at a fixed frequency, typically every 2 weeks, up to 8 times in all.
What you can look forward to
You can confidently expect the removal of existing discolouration, and a block on the emergence of new pigmentation from within. Skin looks brighter, clearer and even toned. The wrinkle smoothing effect of the peel further accentuates the smoothness.
• You should not have used Accutane for at least 6 months before the treatment.
• Avoid sun exposure for 14 days before the treatment
• Avoid all products containing Retinol and Vitamin A, for 3 days before the treatment.
• Take the medication that your Kaya dermatologist will prescribe in order to minimise the risk of post-inflammatory hyper pigmentation Post-Treatment care
• For 2 hours after the procedure, do not wash your face
• After 2 hours have passed, wipe the face with cotton dipped in warm water, post which a gentle face wash may be used. It should contain no fats or hard surfactants.
• 3-4 days after the treatment, start applying a lactic acid mask to speed up the process of exfoliation.
• For 2 weeks after the treatment: o do not use any products containing Retinoids or AHA o avoid cosmetic procedures, like dyeing or perms, that contain chemicals. o Use sunblock with SPF 30 or greater
3.FRUIT ACID PEELING
The fruit acid peeling is a medical aesthetic therapy to improve the outward appearance of your skin.
Fruit acids are generally obtained by crop products like grapes, apples, lemons, oranges and sugar cane. They result in a superficial, fine peeling of the skin. Thus the skin becomes perceptibly smoother, purer and finer. It appears fresher, younger and more regular.
How Fruit Acid peeling works It is a medically reasonable and effective treatment for acne, impure and large-pored skin, ight induced pigment spots and age marks, as well as for toneless skin.
Fruit acid peelings are the mildest forms of medical peelings nd they are also suited for sensible skin.
Requirement for an even effect of the peeling is a good preparation of the skin. As a preparation emulsion you should use an ointment recommended by us, which should be applied daily to the well dried skin, which is foreseen for the peeling. You should have performed the pretreatment for approximately 10 days before the peeling, to prepare the skin optimally.
Sunbathes should be avoided for 4 weeks after the peeling.
The uppermost layer of skin, the stratum corneum, is dead skin which functions as a protective sheath against the environment. It faces the onslaught of forces like sunlight, pollution and dirt on a daily basis. This exposure typically causes hyperpigmentation, premature wrinkles and fine lines on the unprotected areas of skin. Lined and wrinkled skin appears duller and darker. The delicate areas of the face, such as the region around the eyes, have a thinner layer of skin making them even more susceptible to damage and increasing the appearance of dark circles around the eyes. Fortunately, below this surface lies smooth, younger skin which is waiting to be uncovered. Glycolic Peels do precisely that. They exfoliate the skin evenly, taking away dead cells to reveal the underlying layer of fresh skin.
Inherently moderate compared to other chemical peels, Glycolic Peels can be rendered as gentle or mild as a dermatologist wishes them to be. They are versatile enough to address an entire spectrum of skin concerns but they still remain superficial peelings.
Glycolic Peels are a time-tested solution, especially as the first line of action, and form an essential part of a dermatologist's toolkit, especially for treatments such as:
– Skin Glow treatments: where they dissolve and release dead layers of skin to let the radiant, fresh layer shine through.
– Pigmentation Solutions: where they remove the layer of discoloured, hyperpigmented dead skin and reveal an evenly toned layer below.
– Dark Circle Solutions: where the lined, dull and discoloured dead skin around the eyes is gently eased away to reveal bright, smooth underlying skin. As the name indicates, they are based on glycolic acid which comes from sugar cane and belongs to a family of acids called alpha-hydroxy acids or fruit acids. In fact, the generic term 'fruit peels' is often used in common parlance when referring to Glycolic Peels.
How Glycolic Peels work
Hyperpigmentation is deep-seated, with melanin deposits residing in the dermis, but its overall presentation begins at the epidermal level. This means, visible improvement can be achieved quickly and easily by applying a simple operating principle: let discoloured, damaged or dead skin cell layers peel away, making way for fresh new skin.
During treatment, the Glycolic Peel is allowed to act on the skin for a predetermined amount of time based on the concentration of the solution and the dermatologist's sense of what the individual's skin can take. Glycolic acid penetrates the skin and breaks the bonds that hold each layer together. Once the desired number of layers have been separated and removed, the solution is washed off.
What to expect
Immediately after a Glycolic Peel treatment, the skin will look slightly pinkish. In some cases it may continue to peel for a few days. The entire process from treatment to recovery can take a week or longer, but the results are soon apparent: clearer, brighter skin with a marked reduction in uneven pigmentation or discolouration. Realistically speaking, treatment outcomes are in the realm of improvement rather than dramatic transformation.
• Avoid seeking Glycolic Peel treatment if you have warts, active cold sores, sunburn, or excessively sensitive skin. Likewise, if you have dermatitis or inflammatory rosacea. The procedure could trigger a flare-up.
• A history or rashes or allergies would indicate that you may be sensitive to the treatment.
• Avoid Glycolic Peel treatment if you have taken Accutane any time up to 12 months before your intended treatment.
• Avoid all chemical peels, Glycolic included, if you are pregnant or are nursing.
• A week before the treatment, avoid sun exposure, and treatments such as waxing, depilatory creams and laser hair reduction.
• 2-3 days before the treatment, stop taking any product containing Retinol, AHA, BHA or Benzoyl Peroxide. Do not exfoliate.
• On the day, do not shave the area which will be exposed to the peel. Post-treatment care
• Wait at least 48 hours before resuming the regular use of Retin-A or other vitamin A products
• Avoid waxing facial hair for 72 hours after the treatment
• Avoid strenuous exercise until at least the next day or until all the redness has subsided
• Avoid direct sunlight for at least 1 week and use sunblock with SPF 50 or greater
• Avoid scrubbing your face. Use a mild facial wash and pat gently dry
• Avoid other facial treatments for at least 1 week after your peel
