Tixel is an energy technology that uses Thermo – Mechanical Action for Fractional skin rejuvenation. A technology that can achieve high efficacy with high safety, unlike ablative lasers and deep peels which although highly effective, score low on safety.
The Tixel device is ideal for reducing and reversing signs of chronological aging. The thermal “insult” to dermal collagen, promotes skin tightening due to fibroblasts stimulation which work together with the epidermal heat induced disruption results in a youthful and fresher look to the skin.
It has both an ablative mode that creates micro channels of controlled damage to the skin to stimulate collagen production and aid in rejuvenation as well as a non ablative mode which heats the upper dermis of the skin which opens channels to assist in the transfer of topical serums into the skin.
The heat is emitted through a square metallic tip – and covered in a self sterilising titanium shell. The titanium pyramids are heated to a temperature of 400 degrees Celsius and are applied briefly to the skin for only a few milliseconds.
A typical treatment regime would involve 3-5 sessions 3-6 weeks apart (dependent on the intensity of each treatment session) following by 1 maintenance session every 3-6 months.
Tixel can be used on the face, neck, hands & body areas and treats the concerns of –
- Wrinkles & Fine Lines
- Skin tone & Texture
- Skin Laxity
- Tightening of skin around the eyes, including upper eyelids
- Sun Damage
- Acne & Scarring
- Enlarged Pores
- Pigmentation & Uneven skin tone
- Infusion of Active Ingredients
- Field Actinic Keratosis (rough sun spots)
