Maybe you’ve decided you want to start seeing a new you staring back from the mirror in 2021 but would like to seek the specialist advice of a medical professional when it comes to options other than anti-wrinkle injections?
If this sounds like you, and you’re not sure where to start when it comes to cosmetic dermatology then Dr Scott’s new Tixel technology is a great first step on your skin rejuvenation journey!
What is Tixel?
Tixel is an energy-based device that uses pure radiant heat to rejuvenate the skin, reduce skin laxity and restore the dermal signs of ageing. It is safe for the entire face (including the eyelids), all skin types and all body areas.
How does Tixel work?
Tixel uses heat and pressure (as opposed to laser, light or plasma) to stimulate collagen induction and dermal remodelling in the skin.
Dermal remodelling refers to a series of skin treatments that focus on restoring skin health from the living layer of skin known as the Dermis. By treating this middle, living layer of skin you ensure long lasting results as the skin doesn’t just look healthier, it is healthier as you are treating the root causes of your skin problems inside and out.
Tixel is the very latest cosmetic dermatology technology on the market and represents a quantum leap forward in this type of treatment.
What does it treat?
1. Fine lines & wrinkles
2. Non-surgical eye rejuvenation
3. Acne scarring
5. Dull complexion
What is the downtime?
The skin will be warm and red for a few hours after the treatment. Eyelid treatment leaves the lids slightly swollen for 2-3 days, but makeup can be applied after 24 hours. The redness has generally settled by day 3 at which time the skin becomes dry and sandpapery. This can last up to a week after treatment.
What is the recommended treatment plan?
The initial treatment regimen is 3 sessions, 6 weeks apart. We advise a top-up treatment every 12 months.
What is the cost?
Non-surgical eye rejuvenation $350
Full face $600
Face & neck $700
Face, neck & decolletage $850
