Patients can expect to see a difference after 1 treatment, but we recommend a course of 3-5 sessions for optimal results. Results can be seen 4-6 weeks after treatment.
TIXEL® is unqiue in being able to treat the eyelids and under eye area where CO2 lasers cannot be used. Photos below show a male TIXEL® patient's eyes before and then the results 4 weeks after the first treatment.
TIXEL® has a bio-compatible, sterile titanium tip with 81 tiny pyramids that are heated to 400 degrees C. The tip makes brief contact with the skin, where it transfers thermal energy to the upper skin layers, creating micron sized pores. There is no bleeding.
The energy transfer can be carefully controlled by your practitioner to be used in ablative and sublative treatment techniques.
Preparation and aftercare
No special prepartion is required prior to treatment, but your skin will need to be free from an active tan for 3 weeks prior to treatment.
The appoointment for your treatment takes 60 - 75 mins.
After treatment you should expect to have a ‘sunburnt’ feeling and look on the area treated. This redness may last for a few days. You will be provided with an SPF cream to use for 3 weeks post treatment.
Some micro crusting (small scabbing) is to be expected but will clear between 2-3 days. You may use makeup after 48 hours to cover your skin while healing continues - we recommend using mineral makeup.
