If you have blotches, scars, wrinkles, or lines on your face due to aging, acne, or too much time in the sun, laser skin resurfacing can make you look younger and healthier. Laser skin resurfacing eliminates skin layer by layer, layer by layer, with pinpoint accuracy. Fresh skin cells form during the healing process, giving the skin a thinner, younger appearance. The surgery may be performed individually or in conjunction with other facial surgical surgeries.
Tixel is an FDA-Cleared non-ablative fractional skin rejuvenation technology that uses thermo-mechanical energy to increase the firmness and texture of the skin. It is not a laser. Inside the handpiece, Novoxel's proprietary titanium plate is heated to 400 degrees Celsius. The titanium plate has 81 blunt pyramidal projections, 24 of which are located on a small plate designed especially for use around the eyes. The procedure is non-invasive since the heated plate is only exposed to the skin's surface for a brief period of time. The projections of the plates do not puncture the skin; instead, they create micron-sized channels in the skin's tissue to induce new collagen production.
