Tixel is a revolutionary non-laser technology that uses thermo-mechanical energy to resurface, tighten and rejuvenate the skin.

This unique device uses a patented titanium plate, with tiny, blunt pyramidal projections on it,  heated to 400 degrees celsius, which is momentarily applied to the skin’s surface, delivering thermo-mechanical energy to remodel and improve the skin. 

The technique is non-invasive as the projections do not puncture the skin, but rather create micron-sized channels in the skin’s tissue to stimulate new collagen generation. 

Treatment Options with Tixel

The device has 3 different treatment programs – open channel, non-ablative and ablative, to improve the following conditions

  • Excess upper eyelid skin
  • Laxity of the lower eyelid skin
  • Sun-damage (photo-ageing)
  • Acne scars and open pores
  • Fine lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity
  • General skin rejuvenation/tightening
  • Various forms of Pigmentation
  • Dry eye syndrome
  • Infusion/Delivery of active skincare/topical medications

Advantages of Tixel

As there is no charring (carbonisation) of the tissue that occurs with laser, Tixel® offers:

  • Less discomfort, without anaesthetic injections
  • Tixel heals rapidly, requiring less downtime
  • Comparable results to C02 laser resurfacing (when performed at higher settings) with  less downtime
  • Increased safety with less risk of complications/infections.
  • Tixel can be used to treat around the eyes and on the eyelids, without damage to the retina of the eyes

Tixel FAQ’s

Is Tixel safe?
Tixel can be used safely on most skin types.

It is not suitable, however, for women who are pregnant or those who have tanned their skin in the last 4-weeks.

As with all treatments, you should speak to your practitioner about your complete medical and skin history.

How many Tixel treatments will I need?
Typically, a course of 3-5 treatments (4-6 weeks apart) is recommended, but it is dependant on the treatment mode and individual skin concerns.
How long does a Tixel treatment take?
This depends on the area being treated but is usually between 15-minutes and 1-hour.
Is Pain Relief required?
A topical anaesthetic cream is applied 30-minutes prior to your treatment, for comfort,
What should I expect during my Tixel treatment?
Immediately after your treatment, Synergie Super Serum will be applied to the treated skin.  This anti-ageing concentrate is packed with powerful skin rejuvenation peptides.  We recommend this then be applied hourly for 6-hours following your treatment.

Recovery varies with the intensity of the treatment but some swelling, redness and a mild sunburn sensation can be expected in the hours following your treatment.

A light treatment may only have downtime for 1-day, whereas a heavier treatment may produce redness and micro-crusting for up to a week.

Eyelid treatment may leave the eyes slightly swollen for a few days.

What aftercare is required?
It is important to follow the after-care instructions, provided by your nurse/therapist.  Makeup, if required, may be applied the day after your treatment.  We recommend Oxygenetix Foundation or Synergie mineral-based makeup.  Of course, broad-spectrum sunscreen is essential!
How long with the results last?
Results from collagen production and skin remodelling will continue over the next few months, with results lasting 1-2 years, depending on your genetics and lifestyle.

Depending on the condition of your skin and your goals, your practitioner may recommend repeating the Tixel treatment every 12-18 months.

For patients with dry-eye symptoms, most will require repeat treatment yearly, but this will vary according to individual symptoms.
