Patients seeking rejuvenation are faced with a wide range of cosmetic procedures that often incur lengthy downtime and recovery. Although effective treatments, this can present challenges to those on a tight schedule. With recent innovation in non-invasive skin rejuvenation, Tixel is unique because it uses thermal energy to deliver fractionated treatment without downtime or pain. This technology allows patients to receive multiple treatments over a short period of time, resulting in quicker improvement compared to other procedures.
The Tixel system uses proprietary Thermal Mechanical Action (TMA), unique to the treatment to provide fractional skin rejuvenation. The TMA technology delivers precisely controlled heat to the dermis layer of the skin, stimulating collagen production and improving skin without damaging the deeper layers of skin, resulting in a skin tightening effect.
Reverse the effects of gravity and time
With age, your skin experiences a decline in collagen production, leading to those dreaded signs of aging we are all familiar with. Lines and wrinkles can be an unsightly reminder of your age, leaving you feeling self-conscious about how you look.
Tixel treatments provide a wide range of benefits and are diverse in the skin conditions that can be treated.
- Loose and crepey skin
- Age spots and hyperpigmentation
- Skin discoloration
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Dull complexion
- Uneven skin texture
- Acne scars
- Stretch marks
- Eyelid treatment
Treatments are tailored to your unique needs
Tixel skin treatments offer three varying levels of intensity based on the amount of improvement needed, all still using the same thermal conductivity to stimulate collagen for the desired skin tightening effects.
This highest level of treatment is ideal for skin tightening and treating scars. The results achieved are comparable to more intensive procedures, such as a fractional CO2 laser resurfacing treatment or chemical peel, with a much shorter recovery period. You can expect 2-3 days of recovery with micro crusting on the surface of the skin, and make-up can be applied two days after treatment. Treatments are recommended 4 to 6 weeks apart, with maintenance treatment at 6 to 12 months
Medium ablative treatments can achieve similar skin tightening results as the full ablative level; however, it will require more sessions. The recovery time is less with normal activities resuming within 24 hours. Post-care treatment is the same as full ablative treatment. This level of treatment is a perfect medium, delivering a combination of anti-aging effects for all skin types with even less downtime. Like full ablative treatments, sessions are recommended 4 to 6 weeks apart, with maintenance treatment at 6 to 12 months
The lightest level of treatment provides refreshment to the skin, revealing a boost in radiance. Open channel treatments work synergistically with your skin care routine, increasing the absorption of topical products. Skin concerns such as rosacea, hyperpigmentation, age spots, melasma, and skin laxity are also addressed. This provides a faster recovery time than medium and full ablative treatments. Open channel can be done 2 to 4 weeks apart.
How does it work?
The Tixel system works by delivering precise amounts of thermal energy to the skin’s surface. The thermal energy penetrates the epidermal layer of the skin, where it stimulates collagen production. The result is a tighter, smoother appearance.
The device used to treat the skin contains 81 tiny pyramid shaped cones on a metallic plate that are heated to deliver controlled thermal energy to the surface of the skin, leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed. That heat up to 400°C. When it briefly touches the skin the thermal energy is transferred to the skin creating tiny holes. This is micro damage that stimulates the new collagen production. Collagen is stimulated to restore the structure of the skin to a more youthful state, smoothing out wrinkles, fine lines, and acne scars.
Treatment is well tolerated, and a warm sensation is felt on the facial skin; however, there is minimal discomfort or pain.
How does Tixel compare to other treatments?
Tixel’s unique delivery of thermal energy provides comparable results to more invasive procedures, with much less downtime and side effects. Often, patients will feel a sunburnt feeling hours after treatment; however, this quickly subsides.
Because of the gentle nature of the procedure, treatments can be carried out more frequently, with a series of 3-6 sessions recommended. Compared to other skin resurfacing treatments with extensive recovery such as laser resurfacing, Tixel achieves similar anti-aging improvements. The treatment precisely targets the top layer of the skin only, leaving the surrounding tissue intact, and a skin tightening effect is achieved for a youthful appearance. This is effective and safe to use on all skin tones, including darker skin types.
If you’ve been considering a rejuvenation treatment, Tixel’s capabilities should earn its place at the top of your list!
