BioRevitalization PRX‑T33 Peel
Medical Grade Chemical Face Peel
Exfoliate, brighten, and restore skin, without the painful side effects of a standard chemical peel. The team of skincare professionals at Lyla Beauty Bar in Acton, MA offer a medical grade chemical face peel service, called the BioRevitalization PRX-T33 Peel. It is safe for all skin types, requires no down-time, and does not cause peeling.
What is the BioRevitalization PRX‑T33 Peel?
The PRX-T33 Peel is a topical solution that when gently massaged into the dermis and epidermis, reduces damaged skin cells and fine lines. Unlike most chemical face peels, the PRX-T33 treatment uses kojic acid and hydrogen peroxide to balance the main ingredient, trichloroacetic acid (TCA). This enables patients to avoid the peeling side effect.

While trichloroacetic acid (TCA) has traditionally served as a peeling agent, it’s important to note that BioRevitalization PRX-T33 operates differently and should not be mistaken for a standard chemical peel. Chemical peels are often accompanied by the inconvenience of extended downtime, requiring individuals to wait until the peeling subsides.
Furthermore, chemical peels pose increased risks due to the challenging control of outcomes, including potential issues like hypo- and hyper-pigmentation and infection. In contrast, the BioRevitalization PRX-T33 treatment offers age-defying benefits for the appearance and texture of the skin, without the need for peeling or downtime typically experienced with chemical peels, injectables, or other invasive aesthetic treatments.
Yes, however, it’s important to note that active acne can make the skin unusually delicate and sensitive. Prior to scheduling an appointment, we highly recommend consulting with your provider. If you happen to be using topical retinoic acid (isotretinoin), it is crucial to discontinue its usage for at least 15 days before your treatment.
Following a gentle cleansing, the practitioner will skillfully apply the topical BioRevitalization PRX-T33 treatment using a specific massage technique. Once the appropriate number of layers has been applied, based on your specific needs, the remaining residue will be rinsed off your skin using water, followed by the application of a post-treatment cream. Before leaving your appointment, Lyla Beauty Bar will provide you with instructions for your personalized home care regimen.
Generally, the BioRevitalization PRX-T33 treatment is well tolerated by most patients. Minimal itching or burning sensation during treatment is reported, especially during the first treatment, but that is considered to be normal.
After the 1 session you will notice immediate improvement, but we highly recommend a full series (min. of 4 treatments) to achieve longer-lasting collagen formation.
Yes. BioRevitalization PRX-T33 treatment can be combined with many other aesthetic procedures; Lyla Beauty Bar will advise you on the best combination therapies to address your aesthetic needs.
If you’ve received the BioRevitalization PRX-T33 treatment before and are aware of how your skin typically responds to it, it is possible to undergo the treatment on the same day as your event. However, if it is your first time receiving treatment or if a significant amount of time has passed since your last session, we recommend allocating up to 5 days for your skin to fully recover from any potential discomfort, such as flaking or redness, that might arise.
Following the treatment, you will notice that your skin appears brighter, plumper, tighter, and rejuvenated. It is normal to experience moderate redness and some flaking. The flaking indicates that your skin is shedding excess dead cells, a beneficial process. To alleviate both the flaking and moderate redness, we recommend using a moisturizing face cream for dry skin.
After the treatment and during the subsequent days, it is important to apply moisturizer to replenish your skin’s natural barrier. Starting from the day after the treatment, in the evening, you should apply facial smoothing fluid and wait for 30 minutes before applying any additional products.
The home care program is carefully crafted to alleviate potential discomforts, including redness or mild flaking, in the days following the treatment, while also enhancing and prolonging the dermal stimulation provided by the BioRevitalization PRX-T33 peel.
Immediately after the treatment, your skin may become more sensitive and react differently to moisturizers and other cosmetics, including those you typically use in your daily routine. It is important to adhere to the home care program recommended by Lyla Beauty Bar to prevent any potential discomfort. Additionally, gentle cleansers, SPF products, and makeup can still be used alongside the home care program.
Yes. You may exercise following the treatment; however, it is recommended to refrain from using saunas or steam baths for at least 2 days post-treatment. You may also apply makeup and SPF right after the treatment, provided you use a high-level SPF appropriate for your skin type.
No. You will be able to resume your social and professional life immediately after the treatment. Any redness or light flaking can be alleviated by using facial moisturizer.
