Tixel is a non-invasive skin resurfacing cosmetic treatment that uses targeted heat energy to stimulate increased production of collagen and elastin in the skin, effectively improving the overall tone and texture of the treated areas to reveal a smoother, tighter complexion. 

What does your face look like after Tixel?


Immediately following a Tixel skin resurfacing treatment, it is common for patients to experience some redness, as well as the complexion being warm and slightly swollen, all of which should subside entirely within a few hours to a few days. However, the skin will also appear to be rejuvenated and refreshed, and as the treated skin heals, a smoother, more youthful complexion will develop. The treatment uses the skin’s natural healing process of producing increased amounts of collagen and elastin to achieve the desired results, so as the skin continues to heal, the results will continue to develop and improve, gradually smoothing out any unevenness in both the tone and texture of the skin. Tixel is very effective in reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars. 

How long does it take to heal from Tixel?


The amount of time it takes to heal from Tixel treatments will vary from patient to patient depending on the intensity of the treatment and the natural healing process of the patient’s skin. 

It is very common to experience some redness and minor swelling, along with the skin feeling more sensitive than usual, with some patients describing their skin as feeling as though they have received a sunburn within the first few hours to a couple of days following the treatment. Some patients may heal faster than others, particularly if they only had minor skin imperfections to treat, healing entirely within a few days, whereas those who have received more intensive treatments will likely take a few weeks before their skin has healed entirely. 

To support a healthy healing process to speed it up a little bit, dermatologists will typically suggest that their patients keep the treated area clean and sufficiently moisturized (they may recommend a gentle cleanser and moisturizer), to protect the treated area from direct sun exposure, to stay well hydrated while maintaining a balanced and healthy diet, as well as avoiding picking at any of the scabs or flakes that develop on the surface of the skin.

Is Tixel treatment worth it?


Whether Tixel treatments are worth it for you is entirely dependent on your specific budget, skincare concerns, and goals from a treatment, but most people who are looking for a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that will effectively improve mild to moderate imperfections in tone and texture will likely find Tixel to be a great option. The treatment itself is often considered to be safer and results in less discomfort than other comparable treatments, with Tixel only requiring minimal downtime for recovery while still providing long-lasting results. Tixel is an effective treatment option that works to improve the health of the skin while causing very minimal damage or trauma to the skin and surrounding tissues, making it an ideal cosmetic option for many patients. It can also be safely used to treat more sensitive areas of the face such as around the eyes and is often used in combination with other cosmetic treatments such as dermal fillers to achieve longer-lasting, natural, and significant results.  

What should I avoid before Tixel?


One of the most important recommendations that your Tixel provider will tell you is to avoid any sun exposure that could lead to burns or tanning, as well as tanning products as they can affect your skin’s ability to heal properly. This sun exposure should be avoided entirely for at least 4 weeks before the treatment. If you use a retinol product on the skin that is going to be treated with Tixel, you should stop using it around 5 days before your treatment, and the use of any products containing Vitamin A should be stopped around 3 days before your appointment. 

Any other specific recommendations will be provided by your Tixel provider to ensure that your skin is prepped for your treatment and as healthy as possible to allow for a fast and easy healing process.
