What it treats
Tixel gives extraordinary results in treating a wide range of conditions using thermo-mechanical ablation technology (TMA) to provide anti-aging improvements to the skin tone and texture, giving it a radiant and youthful appearance. Tixel delivers results that are comparable to deep skin peels and intensive laser treatments, with much less downtime, less pain, and faster recovery times.
Tixel is ideal for those seeking smoother, more radiant and revitalized-looking skin, but who are worried about downtime. The added benefit is that it continues to deliver results that improve over time and can last for several years (as it is your own collagen that produces the effects).
The effect of the Tixel treatment on the skin is similar to Clear & Brilliant (on a low setting) or Fraxel and CO2 (on a high setting), but with less risk and recovery time. Tixel also offers more lift and tightening than RF (radio frequency) microneedling. Plus, since it is not laser or radiation-based Tixel can treat hooded eyelids, crows feet, and lower eye bags, similar to the plasma pen but without all of the downtime. Making it the best treatment for SO many conditions:
Skin tightening, to improve skin tone and texture (crepey neck and jowls)
Skin rejuvenation (facial skin, neck and décolletage)
Acne and acne scarring
Lines and wrinkles
Eyelift, for sagging eyelids or eyebags
Uneven pigmentation and melasma
Tixel involves stamping a heated metallic plate with pyramid-shaped spikes onto the skin. It is not a laser, but instead, it utilizes thermo-mechanical energy to evaporate tiny channels into the skin.
This stimulates new collagen, or neo-collagenases, to improve skin quality and major tightening. This process helps improve general skin quality, wrinkles, skin texture, and can also improve acne scarring.
The heated pyramid-shaped spikes on the tip create micro-channels or craters in the skin through evaporation of skin. The treatment is fractional, that is, a matrix of channels is created with healthy untreated skin in between. This helps reduce healing times and complications in comparison to treating all the skin at once.
What is the difference between Clear and Brilliant, Fraxel, fractional CO2, and Tixel?
Although fractional CO2 and Tixel have a similar effect on the skin, there are some key differences between the two treatments. In the same vein that the fractional CO2 laser was a “game-changer” in resurfacing treatments, Tixel technology has become the 21st Century game-changer.
Because Tixel is not a laser device, there is no need to use protective eyewear. It is possible to treat around the eyes, even very close to the eyelashes, without causing injury to the eyes. CO2 lasers do require corneal shields (metal shields that go under the eyelids) should treatment be performed within the bony orbit around the eye.
CO2 lasers also do leave a layer of char or debris on the skin whereas Tixel does not do this. Treatments that were reported as far less painful with significantly less downtime than current laser fractional resurfacing treatments, yet able to deliver equally satisfactory results, with very high levels of patient satisfaction.
Tixel is also unique in that the energy can be turned up or down depending on how much downtime you can fit in and goals. With surprising consistency, patients reported “looking forward” to their next Tixel session, in sharp contradistinction to laser treatments where they were often ”dreading” the next treatment and “looked forward” only to the anticipated results. Ultimately a high level of treatment satisfaction.

Can Infini’s Radiofrequency Treatment Give You Perfect, Smooth Skin?
One of the year’s biggest makeup trends? Not wearing any at all.
