Tixel is a novel, thermomechanical fractional skin rejuvenation system. Tixel’s remarkable rejuvenating and healing effect can be seen in as little as one week, and the procedure can be repeated every four to eight weeks.
How Does Tixel Work?
Utilizing a matrix of pyramids with high thermal conductivity and a biodegradable titanium shell, specialists transfer thermal energy to the skin through a brief touch. At a temperature of 400 degrees celsius, the Tixel device creates tiny channels in the skin.

Tixel vs. Fractional C02 Treatment
Fractional C02 and Tixel treatment create similar injuries and produce similar effects on the skin. However, there are a few fundamental differences.
Unlike C02 lasers, Tixel is completely safe on all areas of the face, including around the eyelids and eyelashes, without the need for uncomfortable metal eye shields required when using lasers. Tixel also causes no charring or debris accumulation on the skin.
Both practices have similar downtimes and safe application frequency. However, C02 fractional lasers often take as many as three to four treatments to improve deep wrinkles or severe scarring.
