Thermal Fractional Facial Rejuvenation
Tixel is a new non-surgical skin treatment which uses heat to rejuvenate the skin rather than injections, lasers or other technology.
The adjustable device incorporates a titanium plate with a series of 81 tiny points over its 1cm2 surface area. The brief contact delivers heat of up to 400ºC and breaks the skin’s surface. This process has similar effects and results to much more aggressive procedures, yet has been found safer with shorter recovery and downtime.
It involves no injections, no lasers and no chemicals; so appeals to patients looking for a more natural way to rejuvenate the skin.
A number of papers have been published which support the claims of Tixel.

- The authors were satisfied that this proved the safety of Tixel for ablative and nonablative resurfacing
Delivery of Serums/Products to the Skin After Tixel
- ‘A novel thermo-mechanical system enhanced transdermal delivery of hydrophilic active agents by fractional ablation’
- Int J Pharm. 2016 Sep 25;511(2):821-30. Sintov AC, Hofmann MA
- Tested permeability of 3 water-soluble molecules, including vitamin C
- Tixel was applied to the skin for 8-9 milliseconds at a depth of 400μm.
- Results showed that the micro-channels remained open for at least 6 hours
- Skin permeability was significantly enhanced by pretreating with Tixel
