Trends in Skin Care: The Unicorn Facial

Discover the transformative benefits of the Unicorn Facial, a unique skin care treatment that combines multiple elements to rejuvenate your skin from the inside out. This in-depth guide will walk you through what the facial entails, who can benefit from it, what to expect, and the long-lasting results you can achieve.

What is a Unicorn Facial? 

The Unicorn Facial is a unique skin care treatment designed to address various skin concerns ranging from acne scars to hyperpigmentation and fine lines to stretch marks. It combines two powerful elements–PRX-T33 and SkinPen microneedling–to offer rejuvenation that touches both the epidermis and dermis layers of your skin.

Both PRX-T33 and microneedling offer their own unique sets of advantages. When combined in the Unicorn Facial, they offer a multifaceted approach to skin care, addressing multiple concerns in a single treatment session. Whether you’re looking to combat the signs of aging, or simply aiming to keep your skin in its best condition, this facial offers a comprehensive solution tailored to your needs.

Step 1: PRX-T33 Biorevitalization Peel

Developed in Italy, this advanced biostimulator combines trichloroacetic acid (TCA), hydrogen peroxide and kojic acid. It’s not technically a chemical peel, as it’s applied with a specific technique that doesn’t induce any peeling. Rather, it deeply stimulates elastin and collagen production to boost the growth of new, healthy skin with no downtime.

When applied to the skin, the TCA penetrates the epidermis to stimulate the deeper layers. At the same time, the hydrogen peroxide mitigates the harshness of the acid, allowing the TCA to do its job without causing significant peeling or downtime, and the kojic acid offers extra brightening. The use of aftercare products help achieve deep hydration for luminous, younger-looking skin.

PRX-T33 is suitable for all skin tones and is non-photosensitizing, meaning it’s safe to use year-round. 

Step 2: SkinPen Microneedling

Microneedling is not a new procedure, but its effectiveness makes it a staple in advanced skin care. The process employs a specialized device equipped with fine needles to make tiny punctures in the skin’s surface. This is more than just skin deep; the “injuries” are designed to reach down into the dermis to activate fibroblasts. The body’s natural healing mechanism then kicks in, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin.

Microneedling alone can contribute to a more youthful appearance by reducing the look of fine lines and improving skin texture. It can also help with issues like scarring and pigmentation. When coupled with PRX-T33, you’re looking at a powerful duo that not only works on the surface but also revitalizes the deeper layers of your skin for a more lasting effect. The treatment improves skin tightening, reduces the appearance of pores, and provides a smoother, more refined complexion.

Who is a Good Candidate for a Unicorn Facial?

The beauty of the Unicorn Facial lies in its adaptability, making it an excellent option for a wide range of skin types and concerns. Whether you’re grappling with early signs of aging or dealing with more challenging issues like melasma and stretch marks, this treatment could be your ticket to rejuvenation. 

Good candidates for this treatment are usually looking to address:

  • Acne scars
  • Age spots
  • Dull, dry skin
  • Fine lines
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Large pores
  • Melasma
  • Skin laxity
  • Stretch marks
  • Wrinkles

However, it’s crucial to remember that individual results may vary. A consultation with our skin care experts will help you determine whether a Unicorn Facial is the most suitable approach for your unique skin concerns.

What to Expect During the Treatment 

Pre-Treatment Consultation

Your journey to rejuvenated skin begins with a thorough consultation at our practice. During this session, our skin care experts will assess your skin concerns, discuss your aesthetic goals, and determine if the Unicorn Facial is the right treatment for you. They’ll also review your medical history to rule out any contraindications.


The day of your treatment, you’ll come into our relaxing, state-of-the-art treatment room. Your skin will be cleansed to remove any makeup, dirt, or oils, preparing the surface for the treatment. This ensures that the PRX-T33 and microneedling will be as effective as possible.

Next, a technician will apply the PRX-T33 solution to your skin. The combination of trichloroacetic acid and hydrogen peroxide works to penetrate your epidermis, aiming to stimulate collagen and elastin production in the deeper layers. You may feel a slight tingling or warm sensation as the product is massaged in, but the procedure is generally well-tolerated.

After the PRX-T33 has been applied, a specialized device with fine needles will be used to create controlled punctures in your skin. While the idea of “needles” might sound intimidating, the sensation is often described as a mild prickling or stinging that most clients find manageable. 

Once the treatment is complete, a calming solution will be applied to soothe the skin. 

Downtime and recovery

One of the major perks of the Unicorn Facial is its minimal downtime. You may experience some light flaking, redness and dryness for a few days; these side effects are normal and indicate that the product is working.

We’ll provide you with specific aftercare instructions including moisturizing your skin with special WiQo products that restore the hydrolipidic film, a protective layer on the surface of the skin that helps to maintain its hydration and barrier function. Avoid sunbathing, saunas, and other cosmetic treatments like Botox or fillers for at least one week.

Follow-ups and maintenance

You’ll be scheduled for a follow-up appointment to assess your results and determine if additional sessions are advisable for best results. Most clients see a marked improvement in their skin after just one treatment, but multiple sessions can offer even more dramatic, long-lasting results.

Summing It Up: The Magic of the Unicorn Facial

The Unicorn Facial is more than just a beauty treatment; it’s a comprehensive approach to skin care that addresses a wide range of concerns. From the meticulous pre-treatment consultation to the detailed aftercare guidance, every step is designed to offer you both immediate and long-lasting results. With the synergistic benefits of PRX-T33 and microneedling, you can expect improvements in skin tone, texture, and elasticity—plus the added perk of minimal downtime.

Whether you’re dealing with signs of aging, skin pigmentation issues, or simply looking for a holistic approach to maintaining your skin’s health, the Unicorn Facial offers a flexible and effective solution.
