Tixel the lowdown
Dr Sajjad Rajpar tells all about his brand new anti-aging treatment, Tixel.
What is it?
Tixel is a treatment in which the power of heat is harnessed to freshen the skin and rejuvenate.
Does Tixel use a laser?
Unlike other therapies which are currently available, Tixel is not laser, ultrasound or radiofrequency.
How does it work?
Tiny probes heated to 400 degrees centigrade touch the skin momentarily. It employs direct heat, used in a controlled mannar, which ends up causing the skin to tighten and rejuvenate.
What are the effects on the skin?
Tixel is designed to reduce skin blemishes, acne scars, tighten pores and trigger the skin to make new collagen.
Why is it important to produce new collagen?
As we get older the production of collagen in our skin slows down. Collagen is a vital ingredient in maintaining our skin's structure, meaning the less collagen we produce, the more signs of ageing can be seen.
Is Tixel better than Dermarolla?
The superior results, less pain and quicker recovery means that Tixel is becoming more and more popular than Dermarolla.
What does Tixel treat?
Tixel can treat a range of different skin issues, the first being ageing and tired looking skin. Which would also lead to fine lines, wrinkles, poor skin texture and upper lip lines, often referred to as 'smoker's lines'.
Tixel is also great when dealing with people who suffer from acne. Acne scars and prominent pores are issues that can be addressed with Tixel and they can significantly diminish and in some, disappear over time.
On top of all of that, Tixel can also treat pigmentation, uneven skin and heavy eyelids.
Does the Tixel treatment hurt?
An anaesthetic cream is used to numb the skin. The only comments from past patients are descriptions of mild discomfort, similar to sunburn.
What are the costs?
£400 per treatment.
How often should you have Tixel?
Most people start to see results after just one treatment but need a recommended course of 3-6 treatments usually. I would recommend a 4-6week space between each treatment, to get the best results.
Why is it different?
Very effective yet cause the skin to tighten and glow with minimum downtime. Patients can return to work in one or two days. It is also safe on darker skin types.
Who can have this treatment?
A patch test will be carried out and obviously dependent on the outcome, all skin types can make use of Tixel. Pigmentation or darker skin can sometimes affect what treatment a patient can have, but not with Tixel.
Tixel is also great for patient's that are not wanting or ready to have cosmetic surgery. In addition, it’s also perfect for maintenance after surgery.
