WiQo in Houston, TX
WiQo is an effective and innovative brand of dermocosmetics from Italy, inspired by the goal of stimulating, protecting, and providing new vitality to our skin every day, at any age. Without using needles or invasive procedures, WiQo helps rejuvenate your skin.
The procedure reduces the effects of aging by using a process known as biorevitalization, which gently promotes natural skin regeneration gradually and painlessly.
From the first application, your skin on your face and body will be enhanced and improved, giving a dramatic improvement in texture and laxity. WiQo treatments help prevent further signs of aging without interrupting your everyday life while providing a natural and long-lasting effect.

What Is WiQo?
WiQo is a chemical treatment with PRX-T33, which contains 33% TCA and 67% H2O2 in a patented formula. When massaged into the skin using a unique application technique, it penetrates deeply into the sub-dermal layers to completely revitalize skin for an all-over glow. You’ll notice an immediate improvement in texture and laxity, as WiQo deeply hydrates your skin.
There is no peeling, no flaking, no photosensitivity, and best of all, no downtime with the treatment. Some patients may experience slight tingling during the procedure, but the advantages below far outweigh this minor discomfort:
- Painless, without needles
- Effective, natural results
- No downtime
- Can be used throughout the year
- Provides immediate distinct firming
- Each treatment takes only 15—30 minutes
- Absolutely safe
As an anti-aging and skin-perfecting treatment, this unique chemical peel can address a myriad of cosmetic concerns, including:
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Skin laxity
- Lift and tighten skin
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Enlarged pores
- Dark spots and sun damage
You’ll be able to resume your everyday social and professional life immediately after your treatment session. Should you experience any redness or light flaking, an application of WiQo Moisturizing Face Cream for Dry Skin should resolve this.
What Areas Can Be Treated With WiQo?
Any area of the body can be treated with WiQo. The most common areas treated are the face, neck, and décolleté, and the treatment can be performed on all skin types. Your skin will look vibrant, dewy, and immediately feel tighter.
How Many WiQo Treatments Will I Need?
To achieve the best results, a series of four treatments performed at weekly intervals is strongly recommended. Topical glycolic acid and a moisturizing cream can be used at home between treatments to prolong and enhance the outcome.
What Does the WiQo Process Feel Like During Application?
Each session begins with deep, delicate cleansing. The doctor will then test the product on a limited area and then proceed to massage WiQo PRX-T33 Perfect Intense Liquid into the selected area without using needles or injections.
There may be a slight burning or itching sensation during the procedure, but this is normal and shows that the product is working.
After your treatment, you’ll be given instructions for your home care dermo-cosmetic regimen by the doctor.
How Many Applications of WiQo Do I Need To Notice a Difference?
One session is usually sufficient to achieve a temporary skin revitalization. However, for long-lasting reversal of aging signs, 4-6 weekly applications are typically recommended.
What Should I Expect Immediately Post-Application?
After the application, your skin will appear brighter, plumper, tighter, and more rested. There could be some flaking as your skin sheds some excess dead cells, and there could be some redness. Both of these can be lessened with WiQo Moisturizing Face Cream for Dry Skin.
Be sure to follow the WiQo home care program prescribed by your doctor to avoid any side effects.
What Is the WiQo After Care Like?
Your doctor’s after-care program will suggest that immediately after and in the days following the application, you’ll apply WiQo Moisturizing Face Cream for Dry Skin and in the evenings, WiQo Facial Smoothing Fluid.
Will I Be Able To Work Out, Wear Makeup, or Be in the Sun Afterward?
It will be best to avoid saunas and steam baths for a few days. You can wear makeup immediately after each session. As long as you wear a high-level SPF sunscreen suitable to your skin type, you should be able to enjoy going out in the sun. Be aware, however, that your treatment may thin your epidermis, leading to a quicker tan and making your skin more prone to sunburn.
WiQo Summary of Benefits
PRX-T33 Perfect Intense Liquid has numerous advantages, including:
- The treatment works very well to refresh the skin of the face, neck, décolleté, and body
- Treatments can be combined with other procedures to enhance them
- While the most common application is to the face, the product can also improve stretch marks and depressed scars on the face or body.
Microneedling in Houston, TX
As we age, with the loss of elastin and collagen, our skin thins and becomes increasingly loose, especially in the deepest layers. Pigment cells, called melanocytes, also decrease with age, causing patchy skin pigmentation.
The biggest offender causing these changes in our skin is the sun. Ultraviolet (UV) radiation affects the top layer, where it is absorbed into the DNA of cells, damaging the external barrier and pigment cells. The results are sunburn, the reduction of our body’s ability to fight infections and other diseases, and cancer.
Treatment Options for Facial Aging
Multiple treatment options have been developed to reduce the signs of facial aging. These include topical treatments like sunscreen, Vitamin C, retinoids, laser technology, injections, surgery, and microneedling.
Widely used for its spectacular effects on the skin, microneedling is a popular, non-invasive treatment for various conditions.
Using a drum-shaped instrument equipped with tiny needles, one of our technicians will create microscopic channels in your skin. The resulting puncture wounds cause the skin to regenerate and heal itself. The effect is an increase in elastic fibers, collagen, and skin thickness. The skin generated by microneedling is identical to normal skin and sought after by people with acne scars, suboptimal skin texture, hypertrophic or burn scars on the body, and hair loss or alopecia.
How Is Microneedling Administered?
The process of microneedling is also called collagen induction therapy or percutaneous collagen induction. Each needle, which is smaller in width than a human hair, creates an invisible perforation during each treatment. By creating multiple tiny wounds in the skin with these needles, the body naturally responds by stimulating collagen and elastin growth, both essential for skin renewal.
Microneedling rejuvenation can be used with or without conjunctive therapies to reduce the appearance of facial aging. Other benefits of microneedling include:
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles
- Minimize pore size
- Improves acne scars
- Tightens the skin
- Improves hyperpigmentation
- Reducing burn scars
- Alopecia hair loss
Microneedling can improve the skin’s appearance, even in younger people, especially when administered over time.
