TIXEL® Eyelid Lift & Skin Resurfacing

"Restore the sparkle to your eyes"

TIXEL® rejuvenates, resurfaces and tightens your skin in a process known as "thermal fractional skin rejuvenation", which allows your skin to repair and rejuvenate itself naturally. TIXEL® is good treatment option for:
  • lifting droopy eyelids,
  • smoothing wrinkles around the eyes,
  • smoothing crepe skin on the neck or chest,
  • reducing pigmentation and melasma,
  • reducing acne scarring.

Unlike laser resurfacing TIXEL® has a quick recovery time, minimum discomfort and can be used to treat delicate areas of skin arounds the eyes which laser cannot treat.

Your journey starts with a consultation, with a doctor or nurse, to determine if TIXEL® is appropriate for you and agree your desired outcome before recommending an appropriate treatment plan.

TIXEL® procedures take between 30-45 minutes, but you may be required to arrive 30 mins earlier for the application of an anaesthetic cream for your comfort. Most clients do not experience any downtime and immediately continue their work or social engagements.

During the treatment TIXEL® uses a sterile titanium tip to make micro-second contact with your skin to transfer thermal energy, similar in temperature to a laser, to create micron sized pores that stimulate your natural collagen production. There is no bleeding, smoke or skin charring.

To achieve optimum results, a treatment plan usually consists of 3-6 treatments with 1 month interval between each session.

Your treatment plan includes a complimentary review 14-28 days after the last procedure.

Immediately after treatment your skin will be slightly swollen and red for 3 to 4 hours. Many patients describe the sensation as similar to mild sun burn. There is minimal downtime of 1 to 2 days, depending on treatment intensity, during which you should not wear make-up.

Micro-crusting will appear after 1 to 2 days which can be covered with make-up until it disappears after a 3 to 5 days.

TIXEL® is suitable for all ages and skin types but there a few indications when you should not get treatment:

  • active sun tan,
  • active acne,
  • pregnancy (as with all treatments).

What preparation must I follow before a TIXEL® treatment?

Prior to your TIXEL® treatment your skin must have been free from an active tan for 3 weeks. 
 

What should I expect after a TIXEL® treatment?

After a TIXEL® treatment you should expect the treated skin to have a ‘sunburnt’ feeling and redness which may last for a few days. You will be provided with an SPF50 sun protection cream to protect the skin for 3 weeks.
 
Some micro crusting (small scabbing) should be expected which will clear in 2-3 days. You may use makeup after 48 hours to cover your skin while healing continues - we recommend using mineral makeup such as Jane Iredale.
