Keep reading to find out how Tixel can help you treat fine lines and wrinkles.

What is Tixel?

Tixel skin rejuvenation is a treatment that uses thermal energy to target particular areas of the skin, improving a number of skin conditions, including wrinkles and fine lines.

During a Tixel skin rejuvenation treatment, a Tixel handpiece, featuring a medical-grade titanium plate with many tiny needle-like pyramids, is moved across the skin without breaking the surface.

During the treatment, heat is delivered through the titanium plate. The heat will vary depending on the area being treated and the depth of the fine lines and wrinkles, but is quite comfortable.

Tixel skin rejuvenation can be used as a standalone treatment or as part of a regimen that includes other treatments or topical skin products.

Tixel can help improve a number of skin conditions but is particularly effective in treating wrinkles and fine lines. It rejuvenates and tightens skin, including the eyelids and neck.

In addition to anti-ageing benefits, Tixel also treats acne scars, pigment including melasma, sun-damaged skin, skin tone and texture, age spots, and stretch marks.

How do wrinkles and fine lines develop?

Fine lines are shallow, superficial lines on our faces that may initially appear as quite faint, but can turn into wrinkles over time as our skin loses its elasticity.

Fine lines are part of ageing and normally appear on the areas where we show expression, such as the forehead, and around our eyes and mouth, and they develop with age.

Wrinkles are deeper lines that are also caused by facial movements such as laughing, frowning or smiling, but can also appear on other parts of the body that have been exposed to the sun, including the hands, neck, chest and back.

Wrinkles are caused by the ageing process, but their severity can depend on other factors such as sun exposure, smoking, dehydration, some medications, and genetics.


How does Tixel treat wrinkles and fine lines?

Tixel skin rejuvenation treatments work with the body to treat skin conditions, in a similar way to CO2 laser.

Using a thermo-mechanical device powered by medical grade titanium tips, Tixel safely administers focused beams of heat to the skin.

This focused heat, delivered in a controlled way, causes collagen to immediately contract, resulting in firmer and tighter skin.

The treatment also creates tiny injuries in the skin which triggers a natural healing response in the body to generate new collagen. The collagen plumps out areas that may be losing elasticity and firmness, which can result in fewer wrinkles, and tighter and smoother skin.

Tixel treatments also reduce pore size, making the skin appear smoother and fresher, and giving it a more youthful appearance.

Which areas does Tixel treat?

Tixel can be used to treat fine lines and wrinkles that normally appear on areas of our face that show expression, typically around the mouth, eyes and forehead.

Tixel is able to target smaller areas and delicate skin where fine lines and wrinkles are beginning to form, such as around the eyes.

Is Tixel safe?

Tixel is a safe skin treatment that yields highly effective results with little to no down time.

There are some potential side effects, such as sensitivity, redness and mild pain in the treated areas. Sometimes, patients can experience minor crusting or scabs, which may appear a few days after treatment but should fall off naturally after a week or two.

Tixel is a non-invasive skin treatment, administered by our highly qualified skin doctors and nurses, meaning we can deliver the treatment safely and with patient care top of mind.

Why choose Tixel to treat wrinkles and fine lines?

One of the real benefits of Tixel treatments is that they can target areas other treatments can’t get to.

Clients who undergo laser treatment are required to wear protection, meaning it’s not always able to address issues close to the eye. This is not the case with Tixel skin rejuvenation treatment, which can be safely performed very close to the eye.

Tixel skin rejuvenation treatment is an effective, non-invasive treatment that can greatly improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, with very little downtime, making it particularly popular with busy clients looking to slow down the ageing process.

Tixel skin rejuvenation treatment is also quick and less painful than other similar treatments.
