A fractional thermo-mechanical skin rejuvenation system. Tixel employs a hot metallic pyramidal Tip to transfer heat by conduction upon contact with tissue.
Tixel® transfers thermal energy (heat) directly to the tissue. Tixel® is radiaiton-free.
Energy is transferred by brief contact. The Tip is kept hot. The tip apexes touch the skin briefly and recede.
The Tip does not protrude the skin. Tixel is non invasive.
The tip can be easily cleaned by brushing with IPA (Isopropyl Alcohol).
The heat automatically disinfects the Tip.
The handpiece controls:
This provides control over thermal effect dimensions: Depth and Width.
On a scale of 1-10 pain level during treatment varies between 2-4 depending on settings. After treatment, skin is slightly swollen and red for 3 to 4 hours. Patients experience mild erythema and heat sensation for 2 to 3 hours. There is minimal downtime from 0 to 2 days, depending on treatment intensity. Micro-crusting will appear the following day but this can be covered up with make-up until it disappears after a few days.
