    What to expect from your TIXEL session!

    So you’ve booked in for TIXEL and want to know what to expect? Let me take you through it so you’ll be all clued in for the day of your procedure. 

    TIXEL® is a revolutionary thermomechanical technology that employs heat to renew, resurface, and tighten the skin. There are no chemicals, lasers, or needles used in the treatment.

    What should I expect before the procedure?

    Before the operation, a topical anaesthetic lotion is put on your skin for roughly 20-30 minutes. After that, your skin is washed with an antibacterial solution. Most people feel some discomfort or warmth throughout the process. You can take a primary pain reliever such as paracetamol (avoid ibuprofen/Nurofen or diclofenac) before or after the treatment.

    What should I expect after the procedure?

    Most patients feel hot for 2-3 hours after treatment. The skin may appear red and puffy for the first 1-2 days. Redness might continue for several weeks in certain patients with sensitive skin. Mild pinpoint crusting commonly emerges within the next few days and can last anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. In general, we recommend at least one week of potential downtime. Makeup can be applied to the treated area after 48 hours.

    Proposed Treatment Plan

    We propose a schedule of 3-5 sessions, one month apart. A yearly maintenance treatment is recommended after 3-5 sessions.

    When will I see the results?

    Skin quality varies from person to person; the results may differ. After 1-2 months, you should see smoother, healthier skin with a brighter radiance. The effects are usually long-lasting until skin ageing sets in.

    What can I expect from the aftercare?

    – Wait to use moisturiser until all heat has been removed from the treated regions, which usually takes 2-4 hours.

    – After removing the heat from the treated regions, apply a light moisturiser at least four times daily or until the skin no longer feels dry (up to seven days).

    – Unless specifically recommended by your practitioner, do not use active serums or skin care.

    – After the treatment, you can wash your face with a light facial cleanser.

    – Allow all micro-crusts to fall off the skin naturally. Picking at the micro-crusts or scabs is not recommended.

    – Please refrain from applying makeup or sunscreen for the next 48 hours. During this period, avoid direct sun exposure. Mineral makeup and sunscreen can be used after 48 hours.

    – You can improve your skin healing by taking vitamin C tablets.

    – If you notice any signs of infection or cold sores, don’t hesitate to contact our clinic immediately.
