Tixel Treatment

With ablative and non-ablative settings, we can tailor the treatment to the individual patient without the downtime and side effects associated with that of regular lasers. Tixel can achieve superb results when treating a number of aesthetic conditions such as wrinkles, age spots, skin discolouration, sun damaged skin and even acne scars.

What is Tixel Treatment?

Tixel is a skin treatment that involves stamping a heated metallic plate with pyramid-shaped spikes on to the skin. It is not a laser, but instead it utilises thermo-mechanical energy to evaporate tiny channels into the skin. This stimulates new collagen formation to improve skin quality. The channels formed can be immediately used to deliver products into the skin such as tretinoin (vitamin A) or lightening agents to treat pigmentation concerns such as melasma.

Tixel treatments help improve:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Skin discoloration
  • Sun damaged skin
  • Skin tone and texture
  • Age spots
  • Acne Scars

Tixel is an advanced skin treatment that is used for three main purposes:

  • Skin Tightening
  • Skin Resurfacing
  • Drug Delivery

How does Tixel work?

During your consultation, a bespoke plan will be recommended to you in order to address your needs and concerns. The effects of Tixel treatment will vary according to the settings of the treatment. It works in a similar way to laser resurfacing or a chemical peel by destroying damaged skin cells, encouraging new cell turnover and harnessing the skin’s natural healing process.

Which areas can be treated with Tixel?

Tixel treatment can be to any areas in which there are concerns. The most commonly treated sites are: Face, Eyelids
and Neck.

All three zones can be treated together, or any one area can be treated according to your individual needs.

What happens during a treatment?

Treatment takes between 30 to 90 minutes depending on the size of the area which is treated. An anesthetic cream is applied to the face for twenty minutes. This minimises any discomfort. Once the skin is adequately numbed, treatment can take place. Several shots, each lasting a fraction of a second, are placed in a row so as to cover evenly the whole area being treated. A tiny sting, if anything, may be felt with each shot.
