About Tixel

Tixel utilises thermal energy to reduce and reverse signs of chronological ageing. It is a non-invasive treatment, using a grid of tiny heated pins to create microchannels in the skin, promoting collagen production and stimulating skin renewal.


Tixel works by delivering controlled heat energy to targeted areas, triggering a natural healing response in the skin. This leads to improved skin tone, a reduction in wrinkles and fine lines, pigmentation and overall skin rejuvenation. Tixel can be used to address various skin concerns, including signs of ageing, acne scars, and active acne, pigmentation irregularities, and uneven skin texture. The treatment is quick and efficient, with minimal discomfort and less downtime in comparison to traditional ablative procedures. Tixel treatments can be adjusted to suit different skin types and desired outcomes, making it a versatile option for many individuals.

After a Tixel treatment, you may experience a sunburn-like sensation lasting 1 to 5 hours. Redness typically lasts 1 to 3 days, and mild to moderate swelling may occur for 2 to 4 days.

The use of stronger settings can create a noticeable “dot” pattern. Micro crusting of the dots may appear and should be left to naturally fall off within a week.

The skin may feel dry and rough, resembling sandpaper, lasting over a week. If the eyes were treated, swelling may last up to 4 days.

It’s important to follow our aftercare instructions for optimal healing.


Best results are seen when the skin is pre and post treated with our prescribed active home skin care. We recommend no excessive sun exposure for 3 weeks prior to treatment.


Does Tixel hurt?

People find the treatment is much more tolerable than lasers, but it is optional to use a numbing cream. A cooling device is provided to ease discomfort.

How many treatments of Tixel will I need?

The number of treatments required will depend on the individual and the condition being treated. Generally speaking 3-4 treatments is a common plan.

Can anyone have Tixel?

As long as you are generally healthy and don’t have skin diseases or infections in that area being treated.

It is not recommended to have Tixel when pregnant or breastfeeding.

If you suffer cold sores the treatment around your mouth with Tixel may trigger an outbreak – Dr Holmes can prescribe you with an antiviral to avoid this.
