There are 3 types of Tixel treatments
This setting gives the most effective results for skin tightening and scar treatment.
At this level, the skin will develop small amount of crusting post-treatment that may take about one week to clear. However, after two days this crusting can be covered with good-quality makeup. The result of ablative treatment will be similar to a deep chemical peel or fractional CO2 laser resurfacing treatment.
This treatment setting is able to provide the same skin tightening results as the ablative treatment, but will require more treatment sessions.
This setting is suitable for patients who cannot take any time off work to recover, as it’s safe to apply your usual make-up immediately after treatment. The skin tightening result of non-ablative treatment will be like a medium-depth chemical peel, but without the recovery time.
This setting is useful for treating skin pigmentations like melasma or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
Tixel will make the skin porous for about six hours, thus allowing topical treatments to penetrate the skin more effectively.
It is not a painful treatment and usually no anaesthetic is required. Occasionally, numbing creams maybe used.
