Treatment

Tixel

Getting older often means that lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, pigmentation issues and an uneven texture and tone can affect the appearance. The skin goes through a number of internal changes, which often start around the age of 20 - 25. The effects do not often become noticeable for several more years, but some external factors can make them appear prematurely. Tixel is a versatile treatment that can address a number of ageing-related conditions by resurfacing the skin and providing an overall rejuvenated look.

Tixel works by delivering controlled heat to the skin’s surface, without causing any damage to the deeper level tissues. This process encourages the skin to stimulate a natural healing response, that renews and repairs any old or damaged tissues. The treatment can be tailored to meet the individual needs of the patient, and works in 3 modes: Ablative treatment – helps to tighten the skin and reduce the appearance of scarring, giving similar results to a deep peel or laser resurfacing treatment; Non-ablative treatment – the results are just as effective as a medium peel for tightening the skin, but may require more sessions as it is more gentle than the ablative mode; ‘Open channel’ treatment – making the skin more porous will allow topical treatments to absorb more easily, effective when addressing pigmentation, melasma and skin inflammation.

A grid is placed on the face, which contains pins that penetrate the skin. These pins will deliver the heat to the tissues, which will also help to stimulate the production of collagen and create the tightening effect. This treatment is often used on the face, around the eyes, neck and decolletage. As well as producing a glowing complexion and helping to pause the signs of ageing, Tixel can also reduce minor scarring and reduce breakouts of acne.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I suitable for this treatment?

Tixel is effective for improving signs of ageing, including: lines and wrinkles, age spots, pigmentation, eyebags and uneven texture and tone. The treatment can also improve the appearance of sun damaged skin, acne and the minor scarring that acne leaves behind. The procedure can be tailored to suit your personal requirements, and can be suitable on most skin types.

Is this a safe treatment?

Light Touch Clinic ensures all resurfacing treatments are performed by trained and experienced professionals, to enable a safe and effective outcome. Tixel is an award-winning treatment that is medically approved that has a reputation for high rates of safety.

Will it hurt?

The treatment does emanate some heat which can feel similar to mild sunburn. A numbing cream can be applied to the treatment area before the procedure takes place. Any sensitivity that occurs as a result, should subside within a couple of hours.

What can I expect after the treatment?

Immediately following the treatment, the skin may feel a little sensitive, with some redness. A course of 3 treatments is generally recommended to achieve optimal results, when your skin will look, smoother, younger and more radiant. It is important to follow the aftercare advice that is given, which will include: not exposing your skin to UV rays or using sunbeds for 3 weeks, not using make-up for 48 hours and ensuring you apply a moisturiser to the skin in the first few hours of treatment.

Are there any side effects or risks?

After the initial sensitivity has calmed, the skin may develop some mild crusting where the grid has penetrated the skin. It is important to ensure that these scabs are not picked or scratched as it can lead to some mild scarring, and they will come off on their own within a few days.

Friends of Light Touch

Clean and beautifully decorated clinic and received a warm welcome. I had my first laser session last weekend following my consultation with Klaudia, who was very friendly and thorough. I have sensitive skin and the laser treatment was absolutely fine on my skin. They have customer parking behind the clinic. Would definitely recommend.
