TIXEL skin rejuvenation involves heating a metallic plate to 400 degrees Celsius and applying it to the skin. At low settings, this heat affects only the top layers of the skin rather than penetrating deeply, meaning pain receptors aren’t affected. At higher settings, topical anaesthetic cream can be used to minimise discomfort.
The heated plate features small spikes that are pressed into the skin, forming channels that help to stimulate collagen production and enable better absorption of skin products. A range of products can be applied to the skin in order to address different skin concerns. The process doesn’t involve lasers, but instead makes use of thermo-mechanical energy, minimising downtime and the risk of complications.
