More effective than fractional CO2 without the pain and downtime!
Want great results without pain and without downtime? Then the Tixel is for you! The Tixel is the newest skin corrective and anti-aging treatment technology in the United States. Rejuvience Med Spa is one of the first practices in Arizona to provide Tixel skin treatments.
It’s been in Europe for years and is now FDA-cleared for skin resurfacing. Skin resurfacing means to remove wrinkles, pigment spots, scars, stretch marks, and to tighten skin. There’s nothing else out there quite like it!
Unlike other skin resurfacing treatments, Tixel treatments are nearly pain free. This alone is a game changer!
On a scale of 1 to 10 during treatment, patients report pain levels of 2 to 4 depending on settings. And that’s without numbing cream! Note that we do use numbing cream on the face when using higher treatment settings.
Results are outstanding, especially around the eyes. And there’s a bonus. Tixel treatments around the eyes increase lubrication and reduce tear evaporation, which can alleviate dry eyes.
How Tixel Treatments Work
Tixel is the only fractional skin resurfacing device that transfers thermal energy directly to skin by conduction, which is the most effective form of heat transfer. During treatment, controlled high heat is delivered to the skin for only a few milliseconds. This creates tiny non-ablative coagulation sites that trigger the natural healing and skin rejuvenation process.
Tixel treatment is ideal for those who want smoother, more radiant younger looking skin without the downtime of CO2.
When set to the highest level, results are comparable to those of a fractional CO2 laser resurfacing treatment or a deep chemical peel. Multiple treatments are generally required for optimal results.
Tixel treatment areas for skin tightening include the eyes, full face, neck, decolletage. Tixel treatments are also an effective treatment for crepey skin, particularly under the arms, and for hand rejuvenation.
What to Expect After a Tixel Treatment
After a Tixel treatment, skin is slightly red and may be a little swollen for 3 to 4 hours. There may be a heat sensation somewhat like a mild sunburn for 2 to 3 hours. Downtime is 0 to 5 days, depending on your treatment intensity.
The day after a Tixel treatment micro-crusting will appear, but this can be covered up with make-up. The micro-crusting disappears by itself after a few days. Optimal results are visible at 4 to 6 weeks post-treatment.
Who is a Tixel Treatment Candidate?
Tixel technology is not laser or radiofrequency. Tixel technology is pure heat, so it can be used on all skin types. However, it is not appropriate for those who are pregnant or nursing (this is a blanket skin resurfacing contraindication), have ultraviolet light related skin conditions, have sensitive skin syndrome, or a few other chronic skin conditions. Treatments should not be administered to areas that have been treated with a neurotoxin (Botox, Dysport, etc.) in the last two weeks or a dermal filler treatment (Juvederm, Restylane, etc.) in the last four weeks.
Tixel Pre-Treatment Care
- Do not use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) like aspirin and ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil) for two weeks prior to treatment to minimize the potential for bruising and bleeding.
- If you have a history of fever blisters, take antiviral medication starting one day prior to your treatment.
- Stop all topical acids including but not limited to glycolic, alpha or beta hydroxyl acids, retinols, Retin-A, or other like products 7 days prior to treatment.
- Avoid tanning beds, tanning creams, and prolonged exposure to the sun for 4 weeks prior to treatment.
