Treatment with the TIXEL is the most intensive treatment against skin aging and the device works on heat. The skin is put to work by the treatments themselves, which will make them stronger and healthier. The special thing about the TIXEL is that the effect is actually the same as the well-known CO2 laser only with less down time after the treatment. The results are very good and within a few months the patient enjoys very visible results. Lately we have received a lot of questions concerning the downtime after a TIXEL treatment. Our skin therapist Anne therefore decided to keep a diary of the downtime herself. Every day she explains how it went with her skin and shows on the basis of photos how the skin looks with and without make-up.
Our skin therapist Anne tells:
“At KNAP Institute we work with the most innovative equipment on the market. We keep an eye on recent developments and ensure that we work according to the best techniques. One of those techniques is the TIXEL. This device uses a new concept called Thermo-Mechanical Ablation. This means that a cup (1 cm2) with small titanium pins is shot against the skin very briefly. Through the short contact time with the skin micro holes are made in the skin, and heat is brought deep into the skin. A wound healing process is triggered by the small wounds. The release of heat into the dermis ensures collagen remodeling that results in firmer skin.
The treatment can sometimes be sensitive and the recovery time is 5 days. Because we always want to try everything ourselves, and to know how the treatment feels for the customer, I have also gone for a TIXEL treatment. For my skin we have used the settings for people aged 25-35 years who do not have deep wrinkles, but would like a collagen boost for their skin. This mode has a slightly shorter recovery time of 4 days on average. In the diary below, I report on how my recovery has gone. ”
Immediately after the treatment:
Anne: “Immediately after the treatment my skin is still very red and it feels glowing. I tend to cool my skin, but the heat has a function on the final result. The burning sensation is completely gone about 3 hours after the treatment. Every two hours I grease my skin with Oxygenetics ointment ”
Anne: “The first day after the treatment, I get up with a slight swelling of my face, and general redness. After a shower I grease it with Oxygenetix ointment. With the Oxygenetics camouflage I still look pretty presentable, I think. Some people ask me this day what I did exactly. “Above without make-up and under with make-up.
Anne: “The swelling is gone the second day after the treatment. The holes in my skin have turned into brown dots. After a shower I grease it with Oxygenetix ointment. With the Oxygenetics camouflage I can cross the street, but it is still visible that I have been treated. “Left without make-up and right with make-up.
Anne: “The third day is heading in the right direction. Many flakes come loose in the shower. Unfortunately I can not scrub, so I am careful with my skin. I grease it with Oxygenetix ointment. With the Oxygenetics camouflage is the redness so away. There is little to see from a distance. “Left without make-up and right with make-up.
Anne: “Still to see slight redness. This is great to camouflage. What I mainly see now is the skin flakes that come loose. “Above without make-up and under with make-up.
Anne has now received 3 treatments and she is very happy with the result.
Anne: “My environment has also noticed that my skin has improved. The skin is smoother and shines more. In addition to the series of TIXEL treatments, I also use the facial products from QMS Medicosmetics to keep up with the nice results every day.
