Tixel is powered by TMA (Thermo-Mechanical Action), a non-laser fractional treatment technology that can transfer thermal energy to the skin very quickly and safely. The energy is emitted through a matrix of tiny pyramid-shaped pins made of biocompatible materials covering a treatment area of 1cm². The pins are heated to a temperature of 400°C, similar to the temperature generated by a CO₂ laser beam when it interacts with the skin.
During treatment, the pins are introduced at a precisely controlled speed to the surface of the skin, after which the thermal energy stored in the pins is rapidly transferred to the skin upon brief contact lasting only a few milliseconds. The ensuant evaporation of water from the skin occurs instantaneously, resulting in the formation of tiny micropores in the treatment zone. The tiny pyramids hold a limited amount of energy and evaporate the upper layers of the skin in a controlled manner without causing burns or charring in the tissue, a side effect often seen with other energy sources such as ablative laser.
Tixel is a thermal fractional skin rejuvenation system powered by Thermo-Mechanical Action (TMA) technology. Tixel employs a hot titanium tip which transfers direct heat to the upper dermis. The proprietary tip is constructed of biocompatible temperature resistant titanium alloy. The tip consists of an array of tiny pyramids which are heated to a temperature of 400°C . The apex of the pyramids transfers energy to skin by very brief controlled contact. Treatment is nearly painless. Analgesic creams are typically not required. Healing is fast and down time short.
Based on Thermo-Mechanical Ablation (TMA) technology, the Tixel impacts the targeted tissue almost identically to fractional CO₂ and erbium lasers, however with low pain, safely with no side effects. Analgesic creams are not required. Healing is fast and down time short. Tixel offers a new dimension in compactness, ergonomic design, and operating comfort to its users.
