WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR TREATMENT?
Tixel® can be a good solution for patients who want to treat delicate facial skin, including periorbital, eyelids, the neck and décolleté, safely and effectively. Tixel® is suitable for patients from different age groups and skin types and can be performed all year round.
ENHANCED SKIN PERMEABILITY
Research shows that TMA™ creates superficial channels in the stratum corneum, allowing enhanced permeability to topically applied hydrophilic substances, that are applied after treatment. Tixel®’s intended use does not currently include tissue permeability enhancement.
THE THERMAL EFFECT
During treatment, the pins are introduced to the surface of the skin at a precisely-controlled speed and create brief contact with the skin lasting only a few milliseconds. This enables the thermal energy stored in the pins to be transferred to the skin. The thermal transfer results in an array of tiny non-ablative coagulation sites. Because the tiny tip pyramids hold a limited amount of energy, burns and tissue charring are prevented.
