Tixel a Groundbreaking Treatment for Skin Renewal

Offering results that can be compared to a deep skin peel or an intensive laser treatment, Tixel is a fabulous choice for patients interested in facial rejuvenation with a speedy recovery time and minimal discomfort! Imagine tighter, firmer skin – no surgery required! The results of this treatment are truly remarkable.

  • Full Ablative Treatments

    Full ablative treatments are the highest level of Tixel treatments. In just one session, they offer results comparable to a deep chemical peel or a laser treatment. Our patients love this option for scar revision and skin tightening. Full ablative sessions achieve results faster than medium ablative treatments, and some clients start to see results after just one treatment. But for absolute best results, we may encourage The Skin Elite patients to have more than one complete ablative treatment.

  • Open Channel Treatments

    The lightest treatment level, open channel procedures create “channels” in the upper layer of the skin that increase the absorption of topical ointments that address skin tightening, pigmentation issues, or rosacea.

    Open channel treatments can be performed every two to four weeks.

  • Medium Ablative Treatments

    Tixel’s medium ablative treatments can achieve the same skin tightening results as the full ablative level but require more sessions. We typically recommend three to six sessions.


Is this the ideal treatment for me?

Tixel treatments leave you with beautiful results thanks to its revolutionary technology that stimulates collagen production, creating tightened, luminous skin. There are three levels of Tixel treatments:

  • Full ablative
  • Medium ablative
  • Open channel

Each treatment uses a hand-held, heated metal plate made up of multiple tiny cones. Without damaging deeper skin tissues, the plate delivers short bursts of heat energy directly to the skin’s surface as it is passed over the face and neck.

Are there side effects? What about downtime?

Side effects and downtime all depend on the level of your Tixel treatment. Most clients experience redness and swelling for three to five days.

A micro-crust will form after full and medium ablative treatments before eventually falling off to reveal your youthful, rejuvenated skin. This “micro crust” is part of the process and not as scary as it sounds! Open channel treatments typically come with minimal swelling or redness and have 24 hours of downtime.
