This game-changing skin rejuvenation procedure treats a range of common concerns for patients looking for immediate results without downtime or discomfort. Often confused with chemical peels because one of its active ingredients is trichloroacetic acid (TCA), PRX-T33 works at a deeper level than peels, firming the skin, improving its texture, and minimizing the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, stretch marks, and depressed scars. The revolutionary treatment can be used for all skin types without worrying about hyperpigmentation.
How does PRX-T33 work?
Instead of laying on the skin’s surface as a chemical peel would, the treatment’s TCA penetrates to the dermis—the skin’s middle layer—encased by hydrogen peroxide. The dermal layer’s inflammatory response to hydrogen peroxide stimulates cell turnover and fibroblasts, triggering the production of new collagen and elastin.
You can enhance the results by combining PRX-T33 with other popular skin rejuvenation treatments, such as microneedling.
How many treatments are needed?
When used for facial rejuvenation, we recommend a series of 4 treatments, scheduled a week apart. Treatments targeting areas of the body may require more than 4 treatments.
The results last an average of 6 months, depending on the concerns addressed and the area treated. Because treatments don’t cause the skin to become more sensitive to the sun, you can schedule PRX-T33 procedures throughout the year, including the summer.
Chemical Peels for Skin Resurfacing
This superficial skin-lightening peel treats melasma and other skin discoloration that may be caused by hormones, sun exposure, or genetics. It also improves skin texture and tone. This mild peel does not burn or sting while it is on the skin. It may make the skin feel tight and cause redness and peeling like a sunburn during the week after treatment.
The Perfect Derma Peel
This peel is our newest chemical peel that utilizes a unique anti-aging ingredient called Glutathione, an antioxidant known to prevent damage to important cellular components caused by free radicals and peroxides.* The Perfect Derma is the only skin resurfacing peel that uses this ingredient to help repair and nourish the skin, improving hyperpigmentations, lifting melasma, diminishing fine lines and wrinkles, eliminating and preventing acne and acne marks, refining pores, and giving the skin a radiant glow.* We also offer boosters for more intense treatment and more dramatic results.
ZO® Skin Health 3-Step Peel™
Ideal for treating acne, sun damage, and signs of aging, this peel combines an in-office peel with at-home treatments to transform your skin for the better. Your in-office treatment includes a peel containing salicylic acid, lactic acid, and TCA, which exfoliates away the outer layer of your skin. The next step is a retinol crème and calming crème that work together to maximize cell turnover while minimizing irritation. At home, you’ll continue using the retinol crème and calming crème for ongoing improvement.

This peel is a medical-grade chemical peel that immediately delivers a “glow” to the skin without any skin peeling or downtime. This mild peel exfoliates dead skin cells similar to microdermabrasion treatments. It is ideal for individuals who would like something more invasive than a facial without any downtime of a full chemical peel.
SkinMedica Vitalize Peel
The peel is our most popular peel and for good reason. It exfoliates dead skin, resulting in less acne, less acne scarring, fewer brown spots, and less sun damage.* Two days after the peel is applied, the skin starts to shed from the chin up to the forehead for a duration of about two to three days. If you want to peel during the weekend, we suggest receiving this peel on a Wednesday evening. Chemical peels are an ideal option to help rejuvenate your skin and let new skin layers come to the surface. After a chemical peel, your skin will feel smoother and have a refreshed look to it. In fact, you’ll probably glow.
SkinMedica Rejuvenize Peel
This peel is the strongest of the three peel options from SkinMedica. It is ideal for those who have already had other peels and are now tolerant to medical-grade peels. These individuals are now seeing less shedding of dead skin when other chemical peels are performed. This peel may result in some mild redness and an increase of skin peeling two days after it is applied. The duration usually lasts about three to four days.

The High Speed Lumenis LightSheer DUET uses state-of-the-art diode lasers with vacuum-assist technology to remove unwanted hair, and with greater speed and comfort than other methods. This laser is able to safely treat men and women of many skin types and colors. Stop fighting with razors or paying for regular waxing appointments when you can say good-bye to stubborn leg and body hair for good. A series of treatments is usually necessary for optimal results.* Learn more.
Skin Resurfacing with Fotona QX MAX Acne / Acne Scar Revision
This cosmetic procedure and system offers a laser acne treatment protocol that provides a truly comprehensive solution to help resolve acne.* Fotona’s precisely controlled Nd:YAG laser light safely penetrates into the skin to effectively target overactive sebaceous glands and to reduce the risk of developing new acne inflammation.
Acne can happen at any age, and it’s never fun to address. The results of acne are often pain and scarring, as well as a blow to self confidence. If you have a teen that struggles with severe acne or you have frustrating adult acne, the QX MAX system could be the right choice for you.
For improving the appearance of acne scars, Fotona offers a complimentary laser treatment based on a precise and gentle skin resurfacing procedure in which an Er:YAG laser beam is absorbed by the top micro-layers of the skin to vaporize scarred tissue and stimulate the production of new collagen in the dermis.*
Fast Results Without Side-Effects
For active acne breakouts, Fotona’s laser treatment reduces acne inflammation through photoselective absorption and controlled heating effects.* Fotona’s high powered Nd:YAG laser safely penetrates the skin to an optimal treatment depth to thermally and selectively destroy overactive sebaceous glands.
In addition to its thermal penetration effects, the Nd:YAG acne laser treatment also accelerates the healing process and stimulates collagen remodeling, an important step in the long-term treatment of acne.*
Gentle and Effective Acne Scar Revision
For treating problematic acne scars, Fotona’s Er:YAG laser wavelength is ideal for gentle ablative scar revision. The Er:YAG laser safely and effectively provides the minimal penetration depth required for light resurfacing of acne-scarred skin, helping to improve skin texture and tone.* Unlike chemical peels and dermabrasion, laser skin resurfacing allows the penetration depth to be precisely controlled. The laser gently vaporizes micron-thin layers of the acne-scarred surface to reveal healthy, undamaged skin below. Laser resurfacing is a fast, safe, and simple procedure.
In addition to effective skin rejuvenation, our versatile Neo laser by Aerolase is an effective acne treatment for our patients. A series of 4 to 6 treatments is needed for desired results, with periodic maintenance treatments as needed.
For acne: When traditional acne treatments don’t work, we can use the Neo laser to treat active acne, no matter how severe. The laser energy reduces the production of oil (sebum) and calms inflammation to treat active acne. It also destroys acne-causing bacteria to prevent future breakouts. Acne scars are corrected through increased collagen production in the skin.
For skin rejuvenation: The Neo laser is safe for all skin types on people who want to correct signs of aging and sun damage. This treatment reduces redness and brown pigmentation such as freckles, sun spots, and age spots. It also stimulates collagen production to make the skin firmer, smoother, and tighter.

Crystal Free Microdermabrasion
This process is a skin resurfacing treatment that improves wrinkles, skin texture, and color by removing the topmost layer of skin, leaving it more supple and vibrant.* It also stimulates the elastic tissue beneath the surface of the skin, resulting in a healthier and firmer appearance.* It is a wonderful alternative or complement to chemical peels or laser treatments.
This cosmetic process is a painless skin resurfacing procedure in which epidermal skin is removed by gently gliding a scalpel across the skin. This procedure helps resurface the skin by allowing products to penetrate into deeper layers of the skin. It not only removes any dead epidermal cells, this process also removes unwanted hair, giving you healthier looking skin.*
This non-invasive process is a painless skin-tightening treatment that uses advanced radiofrequency technology without damaging the top layer of skin.
