Tixel Treatments All you need to know.

What is a Tixel Treatment:

Tixel is an advanced skin resurfacing device which utilizes thermo-mechanical ablative (TMA) technology. TMA produces customizable results by the direct use of heat in which tiny needle-like pyramids on a titanium tip are heated to 400°C and stamped along the skin’s surface. This heat energy stimulates collagen production. The versatility of Tixel allows treatment to be tailored to each customer’s individual needs.
