What is Tixel?

TIXEL is an innovative way of treating the skin using a THERMO-MECHANICAL ABLATIVE TECHNOLOGY to resurface, tighten & rejuvenate skin.

TIXEL Skin tightening, is one of the newest skin tightening and contouring procedures to safely treat facial wrinkles without significant pain or downtime. A recent scientific study demonstrates Tixel provides excellent results with low pain, low downtime and quick healing (please see details here).

With results similar to Fractional CO2 laser, it is safe and suitable for all skin types. It is an excellent, non-invasive way to treat loose skin around the forehead, eyelids, cheek mouth, peri-oral lines, neck, décolletage jawline or jowls and certain other areas of the body.

Most people start to see results after just one treatment, but need a recommended course of 3-6 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart, with lasting improvement in skin tightness and tone for up to 12-24 months.

As new collagen formation generally takes 3-6 months, Mrs. Shah-Desai advises a course of 3 treatments spaced 4 -5 weekly, with a review at 3 months after the 3rd treatment to appreciate the final result of 3 treatments. More sessions can then be planned based on individual results.

Patients can return home immediately after the procedure. Apart from a sensation of heat similar to a sunburn (which settles in 1-6 hours) and a redness (which generally lasts between 1-2 weeks), patients can occasionally get fine micro-crusts which last 3-5 days.

There are 3 modalities, Ablative, Sublative and Open Channel. We have 3 bespoke treatments at Perfect Eyes Ltd using these modalities

Tixel Plus (Ablative mode): The treatment is more intense and the recovery period slightly longer. Patients do not wear any make up or SPF for 2 days post treatment, so this affects client facing work for 2 days.

Tixel Light: Sublative mode is less intense with less redness and fewer micro crusts. Patients can return to client facing work the day after treatment as they can cover treated area with make up. This treatment is suitable for those patients with busy schedules & no downtime for recovery, however they require more treatments to get the desired result.

Tixel Glow: Open channel mode is used to create tiny pores in the skin to allow the penetration of medications through the skin.

Innovative transdermal delivery of products that reduce pigmentation, increase collagen production and relaxes muscles to produce impressive results.

Although each has a different aftercare and associated downtime, the result is a naturally refreshed appearance.

Perfect for eyelids, brows, perioral lines, the neck & décolletage, this is popular among actors, actresses, and executives.

Tixel Eyelid Lift vs Blepharoplasty surgery?

Surgical blepharoplasty is excellent for correcting moderate to severe loose eyelid skin and puffy eyelids. It is still the “gold standard” for patients seeking blepharoplasty, with impressive results lasting more than 10 years, for a few weeks of downtime.

Tixel is a new innovative way of tightening loose skin and is an impressive alternative to surgery, allowing a gentle correction of moderate loose skin. For eyelid lifts (blepharoplasty) often 3-4 sessions may be required, which are performed every 4-6 weeks. Perfect for people who want to avoid surgery a gradual, scarless correction and not alter their “look” significantly.

Tixel Ablative Skin Tightening. What to expect…

Do not apply moisturiser or make up to the skin on the day of treatment.

Local anaesthetic cream is applied on cleansed skin for 30 mins. After disinfection, the bloodless Tixel treatment will begin; most patients feel some heat and discomfort, like a sunburn. At the end of the session, there will be redness with small black/brown micro crusts, in the treated area, which may be visible for 1-2 days. Following treatment, the eyelids swell temporarily, which settle in 48-72 hours, and may require use of oral anti inflammatory tablets.The pinkness of the skin can take 1-2 weeks to settle. It is important not to scratch, pick or rub the area treated as a pinkish skin discoloration or hypo/hyperpigmentation could persist. It is important not to use exfoliant / glycolic or retinol based products for 2 weeks after Tixel, It is important to protect the skin from direct sunlight for 4 weeks after.

You will require to use a recovery product, which has to be applied on the treated area for 2 weeks post treatment.
