Tixel treatment (formerly CO2 laser)
Tixel®: The revolutionary breakthrough for skin improvement.
Tixel® is the latest top treatment for improving severely sun-damaged skin, deep wrinkles and aging skin. The treatment is also very suitable for acne scars or stretch marks. Tixel® replaces the fractionated CO2 laser but without the adverse consequences. A safe and optimal treatment of different body zones with a high level of comfort for the patient. Tixel® does not use laser beams or radio frequency and is therefore radiation-free. Tixel® works with pure, natural heat and is specially designed for doctors and skin therapists. The treatment is suitable for men and women of all ages.
How does the Tixel work?
First, we thoroughly cleanse and disinfect your skin. Then the Tixel® delivers controlled pulses to the skin through a matrix of small pyramids, which remain sterile throughout the treatment.
These pulses are very short in duration (approximately 10 milliseconds) and ensure rapid ablation (evaporation) of the old skin. For example, approximately 25% of the skin is treated per treatment. After 4 to 6 treatment sessions (1 x per month), the entire skin is treated and approximately 100% renewed. The production of new collagen and elastin continues after the treatments for 4 to 6 months.
A total of 4 to 6 treatments, each with an interval of 1 month, are required. After each treatment, the result additionally improves. You will get the best effect about 4 to 6 months after the last treatment. The treatment is not very painful, because unlike a CO2 laser treatment, no anesthesia (creams or injections) is required. After about a week, the skin has recovered. Up to 6 months after the last treatment, the production of collagen and elastin fibers is still active, so that the skin continues to improve. After these 6 months the result stabilizes. We recommend that you undergo maintenance treatment after a year or some after several years to maintain the result of the treatments.
Hoe ziet een niet-chirurgische behandeling met de Tixel eruit?
The Tixel improves fine lines, skin sagging and crow's feet. After 48 hours you can camouflage the redness and swelling of the treatment and after about 5 days it has completely disappeared. This treatment is perfect for an eyelid correction without cutting. You can choose whether you want to treat only the eye region or also the entire face. With scar treatment, the treatment can also be performed locally.
