This week in my Q&A I am going to discuss Tixel, our new and innovative treatment which treats fine lines and wrinkles in all of those difficult to reach areas that are hard to correct using traditional cosmetic treatments.
Tixel is an innovative and extremely versatile new treatment option that uses a heat source to beautify your skin naturally, with minimal discomfort and downtime.
Tixel can achieve superb results when treating a number of conditions such as wrinkles, skin discolouration and sun damaged skin and even texture and acne scars.

What areas a commonly treated with Tixel?
Tixel is mainly used on the face, around the eyes (including the eyelids), lines around the mouth, neck folds, decolletage area, arms and stomach. Tixel is perfect for someone who wants to achieve smoother, refined more rejuvenated healthier looking skin, especially around the eyes and lips, without the traditional downtime of other treatments
Is Tixel Painful?
The treatment is delivered via a handheld device so the skin isn’t broken. So if any patients are needle phobic or are worried about any injectables they needn’t worry at all. It is relatively painless we put anaesthetic cream on skin beforehand and it just feels like heat.
How many treatment sessions do you need with Tixel?
Each treatment usually takes about 15 to 20 minutes and usually, a patient will need 2 to 3 treatment sessions, about six to eight weeks after the last treatment session you will start to see very healthy skin coming through with a very nice result.
Is there any downtime?
Usually, the downtime is minimal, lasting approximately 2-3 days of slight pinkness and redness, then you can go about your normal activities.
So to sum up Tixel is a really effective way of treating the canvas of the skin and good for all of those tricky areas that are the tell-tale signs of ageing.
