THE ART OF SKIN TRANSFORMATION
There are many tools available to use for skin transformation. Peels are great (except for the downtime); now imagine a medical grade Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) peel that DOESN’T cause any damage to the outer surface of the skin but penetrates almost instantly to the deeper layers of the epidermis down into the dermal layer where it can stimulate, renew and regenerate. The solution has arrived in the form of the WiQo PRX-T33 medical peel. This level of transformation is made possible by the addition of hydrogen peroxide which modifies the action of the TCA at the skin barrier and promotes penetration without causing harm or pain and producing an immediate and evident firming of the skin. It is ideal to reduce fine lines, crepey skin and rehydrate and thicken the dermis. The addition of Kojic Acid to the formula also helps resolve pigmentation issues.
WiQo is an effective and innovative line of dermocosmetics that were inspired to bring results by stimulating, protecting and giving new vitality to the skin every day and at any age. WiQo is an Italian company that promotes the science and art of beauty: it designs, manufactures and sells revolutionary cosmetic products that promote natural skin regeneration in a gradual, painless and delicate way. From the first application, you will notice the effects as the skin on the face and body will beautify, without the use of needles or invasive procedures. WiQo helps rejuvenate the skin and reduces the effects of age.
MADE IN ITALY, DISTRIBUTED THROUGHOUT THE WORLD
WiQo is an innovative and effective chemical treatment from Italy with over two million applications performed in medical aesthetic offices around the world. WiQo is a revolutionary cosmetic treatment that promotes natural skin regeneration in a gradual, painless, and delicate way, known as Bio Revitalization. WiQo can give dramatic improvements in texture and laxity of the skin, rejuvenate skin, reduce the effects of aging, and renew vitality at any age. WiQo treatments help to prevent further signs of aging in a non-invasive way, without interrupting everyday life, with a natural and long lasting effect.
How does the treatment work?
Bio Revitalization by WiQo utilizes a unique combination of three important ingredients to give the best clinical result without any downtime. The hydrogen peroxide combines with TCA to produce skin tightening effects without downtime, pain, surgery or peeling. Many providers are very familiar with TCA as it is traditionally used in chemical peels. WiQo's topical patented PRX -T33 solution uses hydrogen peroxide to move the acids past the top layer of the epidermis, allowing it to move through the pores and avoid peeling. Once the solution reaches the dermal layer these ingredients get to work. The TCA stimulates collagen by activating tissue fibroblasts (cells that make collagen), the hydrogen peroxide breaks apart into water and oxygen which immediately hydrates and oxygenates the tissue. The kojic acid gets to work by brightening the skin. WiQo can be used anywhere on the face and body -- and has a lasting, immediate visible effect. TCA has been used in chemical peels for many years and does achieve great benefits for the skin, although its use is limited due to the amount of damage it can cause to the surface of the skin.
If you want to get really nerdy: TCA (33%) stimulates the growth of new skin cells, has an anti-inflammatory action, helps to clean the pores, destroys bacteria associated with acne and increases the collagen and elasticity of the skin. Hydrogen peroxide H2O2(3%) is known for its strong antiseptic properties but when applied to the skin, also releases a huge amount of oxygen which nourishes the skin and makes it more receptive to other agents. It also releases water when it loses the second oxygen molecule (becoming water H2O and oxygen O2) giving the skin intense hydration. Scientific studies have shown that it promotes the healing of wounds, helps remodel the skin’s extracellular matrix and reduces inflammation. When combined with TCA, it enhances the penetration and efficacy of the acid. Kojic Acid (5%), the second acid in this magic formula, has been used in many products and peels to deal with pigmentation problems for lightening and brightening. It is a potent suppressor of melanin (dark pigment found in skin) production.
What are the benefits of WiQo PRX-T33?
- Skin tightening on the face and body
- Smoothes skin texture
- Reduces crepey skin
- Lifts pigment
- Hydrates, oxygenates and plumps skin
- Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
- Improve appearance of stretch marks
- Improve appears of scars, including acne scars and scars caused by chickenpox
- Safely treats melasma (dark lesions often associated with pregnancy)
- It can be an option as a basic treatment for the retouching of mini-facials and other cosmetic treatments such as dermal fillers and laser treatment.
- PRX -T33 solution can also be added to other treatments like microneedling or RF microneedling to significantly improve acne scarring; after plasma pen to smooth and eliminate hyperpigmentation reducing downtime; or with many other treatments that will benefit with its use to provide enhanced results.
What should I expect at my appointment?
This is a simple, relatively quick treatment with stunning results. Makeup will be removed and your face will be wiped down. Then the “P solution” glycolic wash is applied to the treatment area and removes skin oil (lipids) to allow greater penetration of the final product. This step is followed by the PRX-T33 solution itself which is applied with a special technique designed to get the most benefit from the treatment. A moisturizing cream finishes the treatment and leaves your skin feeling rejuvenated, tighter, smoother and overall hydrated. The entire process only takes about 30 minutes. After your first treatment we send you home with your homecare products (facial smoothing fluid and moisturizing cream) to continue to progress results between clinical treatments. You will then return one week later to repeat the clinical process -- there are a total of four-six weekly treatments for the initial WiQo PRX-T33 therapy of the face and decollete. Stretch marks can require up to 15 weekly treatments in order to see optimal results.
The advantages of the PRX-T33 facial peel
- It is a non-invasive treatment
- It provides non-ablative (not harming the top layer of skin) chemical stimulation of the dermis without exfoliating the epidermis
- It is absolutely painless
- It works very well both as a single treatment and in combined treatments, as the results of each are enhanced
- It is not photosensitising, so it can be used even in summer
- It can be used on all skin types (unlike many chemical peels which cannot be used on darker skins)
- The results are immediate
- After the facial peeling treatment, there is no bruising or redness, so the patient can go back to their everyday life with no sign of cosmetic treatment
