We are thrilled to be the first Skin Clinic in Ireland to offer TIXEL among our suite of treatment services! 

What is TIXEL®? 

TIXEL® represents the very latest in fractional skin rejuvenation, having established itself as a premier device in the domain of medical skin resurfacing. Backed by FDA approval and a wealth of clinical studies and peer-reviewed white papers supporting its efficacy. This innovative aesthetic solution pushes the boundaries of what's possible in skincare. 
It’s a cutting-edge aesthetic treatment that harnesses the power of thermo-mechanical ablation (TMA) technology, TIXEL offers remarkable skin rejuvenation by delivering controlled heat. This innovative approach effectively addresses a range of skin conditions, enhances skin tone and texture, and imparts a youthful, luminous radiance. Notably, TIXEL achieves outcomes comparable to deep skin peels and intensive laser treatments, while distinguishing itself with minimal discomfort, reduced downtime, and quicker recovery periods. 

Our Approach 

We chose to add the TIXEL to our range of equipment because it is a low downtime procedure that delivers outstanding results and can target areas that are otherwise difficult to treat. It is especially suited to fine lines around the eyes including the eyelids and delicate skin areas such as the chest and neck. 

How it works 

The TIXEL applies a high temperature to the skin through what is called Thermo-Mechanical Ablation (TMA) technology. A small 1 cm square Titanium plate that consists of a matrix of 81 tiny pyramid shaped pins is applied to the skin’s surface in a stamping pattern at a precisely controlled speed. The pins deliver thermal energy at very high temperature (400 degrees Celsius) in brief millisecond pulses in what we call a fractional mode which means small zones are treated surrounded by normal skin. Fractional treatments minimize skin reaction and complications and improve healing times compared to treating all the skin at once. 
The high temperature heat that is transferred into the skin results in the controlled formation of tiny micropores in the upper layers of the skin because of water evaporation. The micropores not only stimulate a collagen response which improves skin quality, but they provide channels for the enhanced absorption of topical products applied to the skins surface. 


The TIXEL can improve fine lines, wrinkles and skin texture as well as reduce pore size. Acne scars can be treated, it is a great option for general rejuvenation not only on the face but also neck, chest and backs of hands. 
All skin types can be treated and unlike Lasers the TIXEL does not require the use of protective eyewear as it is not light-based. This also means it is possible to safely treat very close to the eye. There is no skin bleeding with the TIXEL and the high temperature of the pins makes it a sterile procedure. 
The TIXEL provides an effective but not aggressive treatment that sits between the results of non-ablative and ablative Laser procedures. The settings on the TIXEL are adjustable in depth of penetration into the skin and the duration of the tip in the skin. This allows us to tailor treatments to the skin condition being treated, skin type of the individual and downtime that is acceptable. 
At low power settings there is no pain and no downtime. At high settings we do use topical anaesthetic cream and there can be some skin reaction for 3-7 days. However, the skin reaction is much less after TIXEL than with ablative Lasers such as the C02 because the pure heat that is applied through the TIXEL avoids the burns, carbonization of the skin and wound that occurs with ablative Lasers. 

Facts on TIXEL® skin rejuvenation 

This is a form of energy microchanneling that results in fractional resurfacing. 
Controlled heat is generated through a cold contact delivery system. 
Tixel stimulates your skin to produce collagen, resulting in wrinkle & pore reduction. 
Excellent for upper and lower eyes it regenerates the entire eye area very safely. 
Tixel can be used as advanced mesotherapy (aka. delivery of high concentration skin boosters) 
Tixel can also improve mild to moderate early acne scars. 
The treatment is well tolerated, in most cases no anaesthetic is required. 
Treatment time ranges from 5 to 30 minutes. 
Downtime ranges from 1- 4 days depending on the treatment intensity. 
Treatment can be fully bespoke each time and based on skin needs by controlling the power, passes and depth of delivery.
