HOW DOES IT WORK?
Tixel® treatment is safe for all skin types and utilises fractional ablative, non-ablative and open channel modes. Tixel® uses a bio-compatible heated tip which transfers thermal energy to the upper skin layers, creating micropores. The extent of energy transfer is determined by the tip’s skin exposure time and thermal conductivity which is determined based on the condition being treated. The energy settings are customized and allow treatment to be designed specifically for each patient. Tixel® tightens existing collagen fibres in the dermis as well as stimulating ongoing collagen production.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING THE PROCEDURE?
It is normal to feel some discomfort with this procedure and you will experience a feeling similar to mild sunburn for 2-3 hours following the treatment. Redness & swelling for 24-48 hours is expected. The use of any prescribed skin care may enable faster recovery and help mask the appearance of flaking. Benefits associated with a Tixel® treatment include improvement in skin texture and pore size, as well as softening of wrinkles and acne scars and general rejuvenation. This treatment requires minimal downtime.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER THE PROCEDURE?
This depends on the area/s being treated however approximately 15 to 45 minutes and complete healing time takes up to 4 days. This consists mainly of flaking and some redness for 2-4 days. Improvement may be seen after 1-2 months as the collagen remodelling in the deep layers of the skin that cause smoothing and tightening can take several months to occur.There may be gradual improvement for up to a year following a full series of treatments. The changes in the epidermis and dermal collagen are permanent; nevertheless time, sun exposure and gravity will continue to take its toll.
