Tixel Skin Renewal Programme
Tixel Skin Renewal Programme harnesses the combination of heat and motion to reverse skin ageing, lighten skin pigmentation, and treat depressed acne scars.
Powered by Thermo-Mechanical Action (TMA) technology, its medical-grade sterile titanium tip gently applies heat to the skin to stimulate collagen production to address a wide range of skin condition.
Proprietary TMA technology with patented non-invasive technology
Tixel treatment involves stamping a heated titanium plate with an array of 81 pyramid-shaped pins. The pins are heated to a temperature of 400°C. During the treatment, the thermal energy stored in the apex of each of the pyramid are rapidly transferred to the skin in fraction of a second.
The pins come in contact with the skin in a stamping motion at a precisely controlled speed and distance, transferring thermal energy from the apex of each pyramid to the skin.
Depending on the type of treatment, the extent of the energy transfer can be adjusted mainly by 2 components:
- Tip’s exposure time with the skin between 5ms and 18ms; and
- Protrusion to push the skin between 100µm and 1000µm
These titanium pins are not needles and are not designed to perforate the skin. It works by transferring heat to the tissue by contact.
What skin conditions can Tixel treat?
Tixel can improve a wide range of skin conditions:
- Pigmentation such as age spots, PIH, discoloration
- Depressed acne scars
- Skin laxity
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Skin tone and texture
- Stretch marks
- Horizontal neck lines
- Back of the hands
How can I benefit from Tixel Skin Renewal Programme?
Depending on the severity of your skin condition, Tixel Skin Renewal Programme requires you to undergo at least 6 sessions of treatments.
After each Tixel treatment (depending on the programme), you will undergo a Healite LED treatment to reduce pain, skin redness, and swelling. It also helps to expedite wound healing so that your recovery time will be significantly shortened.
Your skin will be given a further beauty boost by applying our in-house Serenity Skin Restoration Mask that adheres comfortably onto contours of the face, enhancing absorption and sealing powerful nutrients into the skin. It contains several skin-soothing, anti-inflammatory compounds that helps to dramatically reduce skin redness and inflammation.
How many sessions are required to see results?
As collagen and elastin require time to develop, we usually recommend patients to undergo a treatment programme of about 6 sessions to yield the best results.
How long is the downtime for Tixel?
Depends on the mode of the treatment, the downtime you can expect is between 3 and 5 days.
People who have skin ageing concerns, acne scars or pigmentation, but are unwilling to undergo laser treatments due to budget constraints or downtime.
