PRX Derm Perfexion
The PRX treatment is a globally-patented, controlled-distribution biorevitalization treatment that helps improve the hydration, structure, texture and pigmentation of the skin. You will see immediate results with no needles, no peeling, no frosting and no photosensitivity. It is truly a “zero down time” innovation in aesthetic medicine.
The PRX Derm Perfexion was developed in Italy by a dermatologist. It has been the dominant service in Europe for the last 8 years, and this is because it does not provide any peeling, frosting or post inflammatory hyperpigmentation, and it is virtually painless. PRX Derm Perfexion can be performed all year round and is safe for all skin types and conditions, but it is not recommended for those with an active breakout.
What a PRX treatment does
This topical skin treatment utilizes a specific massage technique following the contours of your skin that drives the ingredients deep into the dermal levels. This is what will provide you with the smoothing, tightening and and hydrating results without the downtime associated with other treatments. While it does use TCA, this is not a peel. It is called a Biorevitalizer, meaning it is regenerating collagen and elastin fibers to provide a youthful glow and complexion.
How to prepare for a PRX treatment
Arrive clean-faced with no makeup for your treatment. Ensure that when you arrive you have no active acne, skin infection, acute scaling, irritated skin or sunburn. Avoid shaving, waxing, or scrubs with granules for 1-2 days prior to your treatment. Avoid any exfoliating products for one week (7 days) prior to your treatment. If you are using Retinol (Vitamin A) / retinoids or other treatments that dry the skin or restrict circulation, these therapies should be discontinued 10-14 days in advance of a PRX treatment. Isotretinoin should be stopped 10-14 days in advance of treatment as well. Avoid ablative or exfoliating procedures that penetrate or disrupt the integrity of the epidermis for 7-10 days prior to treatment (i.e., microblading, microneedling). No procedures that aggressively treat the dermal layer (i.e., RF or IPL) in the prior 2-3 weeks. No actinic keratosis (precancerous skin damage). No breastfeeding.
What to expect from a PRX treatment
Following treatment, you may briefly experience transient sensations of heat, swelling or tenderness. You should not experience peeling or frosting – if these symptoms occur, contact your provider for instructions.
