This week on the blog we share the answers to your most frequently asked questions about one of our top skin rejuvenating treatments – Tixel.
What is Tixel?
Tixel is a ground-breaking treatment that uses controlled heat energy to encourage the renewal of skin. The specially designed hand-piece is made from a grid of pyramids, which transfer heat when they come into contact with the skin, creating micron sized pores in the upper layers of the skin. The healing process after treatment encourages the skin cells to rejuvenate and refresh, as well as encouraging collagen, which all helps to tighten and smooth the appearance of the skin.
What can Tixel be used to treat?
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Age spots
- Acne scarring
- Sun damage
How many treatments would I need for best results?
The number of treatments depends on the individual, skin type and issue. Before any treatment you would have a consultation with a medical practitioner who will be able to design an individual treatment plan for you. Most commonly the average number of treatments is 3-4.
Is the treatment painful?
Tixel is designed to be more comfortable than other rejuvenating laser treatments.For more intensive treatments an anaesthetic cream can be applied to the skin prior to treatment to increase comfort further.
How much downtime is involved?
Commonly after treatment most people experience swelling, redness and warmth for several hours. More intensive treatments can leave crusting after treatment, which usually subsides after 3 days and can be reduced with moisturiser.
How long does it take to see results?
Results vary from person to person, depending on the individual treatment plan. On average our clients report seeing visible results after 1-2 months from the first treatment date.
