Chemical peels provide a popular way for patients to treat different skin concerns. Still, some patients’ skin cannot tolerate peels, and even if it does, many don’t want to plan around social downtime to achieve results. At Laser Aesthetics of Cape Cod in Hyannis, MA, we offer a no-peel treatment called the PRX Derm Perfexion Peel. This treatment uses a unique formula and treatment process to revitalize the skin without downtime or discomfort.

The PRX Derm Perfexion Peel

The PRX Derm Perfexion Peel is a BioRevitalization treatment. The topical liquid formula contains a combination of powerful ingredients that, when applied to the skin, can help improve overall skin health, help patients achieve a healthy glow, and promote vibrant, radiant skin.

These ingredients include hydrogen peroxide, 33% TCA, and kojic acid. It’s a safe treatment for patients of all ages with all different skin types and can be administered year-round to help patients achieve beautiful skin.

How It Works

The PRX Derm Perfexion Peel works by using its active ingredients to promote increased collagen and elastin production to remodel the skin and transform its appearance.

The PRX Derm Perfexion Peel vs. the Chemical Peel

Chemical peels contain a special combination of acids that dissolve different layers once applied to the skin. They come in different strengths and range from superficial to deep. Depending on the strength of the peel, it will exfoliate a different depth of the skin, creating an injury that the body responds to by healing the area and increasing natural collagen and elastin production.
This treatment differs from a chemical peel because it uses a unique combination of ingredients to perfect the skin without dissolving the top layers or requiring downtime.

What It Treats

This treatment is versatile and can improve the skin in several different ways. It can smooth the different types of scars that negatively impact skin texture, including acne scars, chickenpox scars, and surgical scars, among others. It can also improve the appearance of lax skin and crepey skin. Patients can undergo treatment to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, melasma, large pores, sun damage, and redness.
We can use this treatment on the face and the neck to target different skin concerns, and if you have a specific concern not mentioned you want to address, we can discuss it during your initial consultation.

What To Expect From the Treatment Process

We will apply a topical solution to the skin during the treatment, then massage it into your treatment area. The entire treatment process, which can address skin on the face and neck, takes 20 minutes from start to finish. Once your treatment is over, you won’t need to worry about downtime. We will give you some post-treatment care instructions regarding what products to apply to your skin to enhance your results.

This treatment  can be done year round, even in the summer months! You can also apply makeup immediately following your treatment, but you should avoid saunas and steam rooms for the first two days to ensure the best results. No uncomfortable peeling, no down time – just glowing skin.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Patients can expect to see visible improvements in the appearance and health of the skin after one treatment. However, a series of treatments will ensure the best results. We typically schedule treatments on a case-by-case basis based on our patient’s needs and can give you more information about what your recommended treatment plan will look like at your initial consultation.

Can I Schedule My Treatment Before a Special Event?

Unlike many skin care treatments that require a few days of downtime, you’ll be able to schedule your PRX Derm Perfexion Peel several days before a special event to achieve healthy and glowing skin. We can give you the best treatment schedule at your initial consultation so that you can achieve picture-perfect skin for your event.

What Kind of Results Can I Expect?

After your treatment, you can expect immediate results and long-term results. You’ll see an immediate improvement in the appearance of your skin, and regular treatments can help you achieve your healthiest skin to date and reach different cosmetic and aging-related goals.

Am I a Good Treatment Candidate?

The best candidates for this treatment are those looking for non-invasive, effective skin care treatment that can deliver immediate, long-lasting results. At your initial consultation, we can review the treatment, answer any questions you have about the product, and give you more details about what type of results you can expect.
We can also make other treatment recommendations during this consultation if you want to address other skin concerns with our different cosmetic and anti-aging treatments. We will also confirm that it’s the right choice for you, as certain patients may not be eligible. Those who have skin irritations, known skin sensitivities, an allergy to kojic acid, or seborrheic dermatitis may not qualify for treatment. Additionally, women who are pregnant or nursing will not qualify for treatment.
