At Thrive Med Spa & Wellness in Honolulu, HI, we know that beautiful skin begins with exfoliation and rejuvenation treatments, which is why we offer customized clinical facials and chemical peels to address the full spectrum of patient skin concerns.
Chemical Peels & Facials With the EZ Lift & the PRX-T33
We offer a variety of chemical peels and facials to address versatile skin concerns and to meet the needs of patients with all different skin types. These skin rejuvenating treatments can cleanse, exfoliate, and perfect the skin with different techniques customized for each patient. Our EZ Lift treatment in particular enhances facials by incorporating the PRX-T33 peel to maximize results and target additional skin concerns.
What Are Chemical Peels?
Chemical peels are professional exfoliating treatments that uncover a healthier and young layer of skin by dissolving dead skin cells and one or more layers of the skin. Typical peels range in strength and intensity to meet the needs of each skin type.
Light, Medium, and Deep Peels
Light peels dissolve the uppermost layer of the skin to brighten the skin, increase cellular turnover, and promote collagen production. They can also rejuvenate the skin to prepare it for a special event, reduce the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation, and treat sun damage. Medium-depth peels contain a stronger combination of acids to address more visible lines and wrinkles, discoloration, acne, and sun damage.
Deep peels have the strongest formulas and are designed to meet the needs of patients with advanced skin concerns, including severe sun damage, accelerated aging, deep lines and wrinkles, and other severe skin imperfections. Our traditional chemical peel options include the SkinCeuticals® superficial and ReveSkin® medium depth medical peels.
What Are Clinical Facials?
Facials are skin-perfecting and skin-rejuvenating treatments that combine deep cleansing techniques with other methods to hydrate the skin while targeting specific skin concerns. They can address the most common skin concerns or simply make good skin even better. Before your treatment, we’ll choose the right professional products and then design a facial that can address your specific skin concerns.
These treatments can give your skin a healthy and lasting glow, improve skin health, and treat hyperpigmentation, aging, dehydrated, acne-prone, oily, combination, or normal skin. We can also customize treatments for rosacea and the full spectrum of skin conditions and concerns.
What Is the EZ Lift with PRX-T33?
The EZ Lift with PRX-T33 is a chemical peel that can be combined with our facials to perfect the skin. It has a lifting effect, and treatments result in brighter, tighter, and healthier skin.
This peel contains three powerful ingredients: hydrogen peroxide, kojic acid, and trichloroacetic acid. Together these ingredients dissolve the top layers of the skin, promote cellular renewal, and increase natural collagen and elastin production. It also can strengthen the skin’s protective barrier and treat the most common skin conditions.
What Does It Treat?
The PRX-T33 biorevitalization peel is so popular because it’s such a versatile and effective treatment. It can target some of the most common skin concerns, including:
- Sun damaged skin
- Dehydrated skin
- Skin laxity
- Sagging skin
- Large pores
- Aging skin
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Crepey skin
- Dead skin cell build-up
- A dull complexion
- Stretch marks
How Does It Work?
This treatment process is quick and straightforward. First, we’ll cleanse and dry your skin before massaging the product into the treatment area until total absorption. If you undergo a facial before your treatment, we’ll make the PRX-T33 treatment an extension of that facial. Depending on your skincare goals and the state of your skin at the time of treatment, we’ll apply multiple applications to address your concerns.
Once the peel has adequately exfoliated and tightened your skin, we’ll remove it and complete the treatment by applying some corrective and protective topical products. From start to finish, the treatment typically takes 20 to 30 minutes. If you want to treat multiple areas, your treatment time may be longer.
When Will I See the Results?
After your treatment, you’ll notice an immediate improvement in your skin. Your skin will appear more voluminous, brighter, and tighter. Your overall appearance will have a well-rested look, and you’ll notice an improvement in your problem areas.
The best results typically come from scheduling several treatments with some time between each. We typically recommend that patients schedule at least four treatments with at least a week between each for optimal results and a significant increase in natural collagen production.
Is There Any Downtime?
Unlike many chemical peels, especially the stronger ones, there’s no downtime after this peel. Once it’s over, you can resume your normal daily and social activities. You may notice some flaking after your treatment, which is a sign that your body is eliminating dead skin cells from the surface. Those cells will be replaced by healthier, younger cells.
Flaking is normal, and you can treat it by using the right moisturizing products. We’ll make product recommendations after your session so you know what to use to enhance your results and promote a quick recovery.
Who Is It Right For?
The best candidates for the EZ Lift are patients with all different skin types who want to target the signs of aging and other problematic skin concerns distracting from their appearances. Some patients may not be eligible for treatment due to common contraindications, including an allergy to kojic acid, regular skin irritation or sensitivity, and seborrheic dermatitis.
A pre-treatment consultation is the best way to determine and confirm your treatment eligibility so you can confidently move forward, knowing that your treatment experience will promote skin health and help you reach your goals without adverse reactions.
The Benefits of Our Combination Treatments
Our skin rejuvenation treatments are effective treatments on their own, but the results get even better when we combine them. If you want to combat aging, promote skin health, encourage cellular renewal, and increase natural collagen and elastin production, we can help you get the most out of your treatment experience with the EZ Lift and the PRX-T33.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Scheduling regular facials and chemical peels is the perfect way to invest in the current and future state and health of your skin. If you’re ready to begin a skin transformation and want to treat those skin concerns that make you feel self-conscious, you may be the perfect candidate for a customized facial or chemical peel.
We can meet with you to evaluate your skin, confirm your eligibility for one of our clinical facials or chemical peels and the EZ Lift with the PRX-T33 peel, and make other treatment and product recommendations so you can reach all of your skincare goals and begin a complete skin transformation.
Revitalize Your Skin
If your skin is dull and needs a refresh, a chemical peel and clinical facial is the perfect combination treatment to lift, tighten, and brighten your skin. We can give you more details about our clinical facials and chemical peels and confirm whether you’re a good candidate for our EZ Lift that can be combined with your skincare treatments for visible and skin-transforming results.
