Smoother, rejuvenated, and younger looking skin is possible without breaking or penetrating the surface of the skin! Tixel treatment at Elite Medspa in Marion, Ohio is a new and innovative treatment, using thermal energy to heat the skin’s surface and stimulate collagen production and create micro channels in the skin to boost absorption of topical skincare products.

What is Tixel?
Tixel uses patented thermo-mechanical action technology (TMA) to deliver heat to the skin and stimulate collagen production.

Because there is no injury caused to the skin during treatment, Tixel is ideal for those who are concerned of recovery times and pain.

The stimulated production of collagen will deliver continuous improvements to the skin with results that last upwards of a year after a series of treatments.
What to expect during treatment
An anesthetic cream is first applied to ensure comfort. After the numbing cream has taken effect, the Tixel device will be passed over the skin with rows of pyramid-like pins pressed into the skin, without breaking the surface of the skin or causing any open wounds. This delivers controlled delivery of heat to the skin with precision in where it’s placed.
Your treatment provider will adjust the levels of heating on the device depending on the skin concerns you desire to target. This is a quick and procedure lasting about 30 minutes, and is relatively painless.
