The treatment that tighten, resurface and rejuvenate your skin.

What Is a Tixel Treatment?

Tixel is a revolutionary, non-laser technology that leaves your skin looking more youthful, tightened and rejuvenated while reducing the appearance of imperfections including acne, pigmentation, fine lines and scarring.

Tixel uses a gentle rotating handpiece to momentarily press onto the skin at different levels of penetration that are customised to the results you want to see. As it’s not a laser, it can be safely used on even the finest areas of skin like the eyelids, and is safe and suitable for all skin types.

Tixel is available at our Cairns clinic and our Brisbane clinic.


How can Tixel be used?

Tixel be used in 3 ways.

Skin Tightening

Restore your skin to a more youthful appearance by tightening the skin on the face, eyelids, neck, decolletage and the back of your hands, diminishing sagging and reducing fine lines & wrinkles

Skin Resurfacing

Rejuvenate the imperfections on your skin’s surface by helping grow new skin cells, transforming the skin tone and texture, reducing the appearance of pigmentation, scars and acne, leaving you with a youthful glow

Improved Skin Absorption

Create tiny pores in the skin to allow deep and effective penetration of products and medications, including the prescribed Synergie Super Serum to increase collagen production and relax muscle activity

Tixel FAQs

What is Tixel?

Tixel is a non-ablative fractional skin rejuvenation system. It applies pure heat, at 400 degrees, to the skin’s surface via a diamond patterned titanium tip.

Is Tixel safe for everyone?

Tixel can be used safely on all skin types and as a spot treatment to  one area of the face or full face  depending on the results you are after.

It is not suitable, however, for women who are pregnant, those that have tanned their skin within the last four weeks, those that have had fillers or threads within the last four weeks, or if you have had injectable muscle-relaxant treatments within the past week.

How many Tixel treatments will I need?

Most of our patients will see results after just one treatment. Our recommended course to obtain the best outcomes is to complete 3-6 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart to achieve lasting improvement in skin texture and tone.  Your dermal therapist will discuss the number of treatments you need at your initial consultation, based on your skin goals.

What can I expect at my appointment?

Your treatment will take approximately 30 minutes. If numbing is required, we allow an extra 30 mins for the application of anaesthetic cream. Your skin is cleansed prior to the Tixel treatment  You are likely to feel warming sensations throughout the treatment, and these expectations will be discussed with you prior to your treatment.

A sunburn-like sensation and some redness may occur 1 – 6 hours after your treatment, and this may last 1 – 3 days. Occasionally, fine micro-crusts may be visible after your Tixel treatment, lasting up to 3 – 5 days. Synergie Mineral Make-up may be used the day after treatment.

How should I care for my skin after Tixel treatment?

Having undergone such an effective and innovative treatment, it is important that you use the most effective skin products to enhance your results and their staying power!

You will be prescribed Synergie Super Serum to apply regularly post-treatment. This anti-ageing concentrate is packed with powerful skin rejuvenating peptides and marine bioferments.

Synergie Super Serum triggers the skin cells to produce their own:

  • Collagen
  • Hyaluronic Acid
  • Muscle Relaxants
  • Epidermal Stem Cells

Synergie Mineral Make-up may be applied the following day and is also recommended for it’s effective physical sun protection qualities.

What is the recovery time after Tixel treatment?

The recovery with Tixel is much faster than alternative laser methods. Usually, you can expect minor redness  to last one to three days. The Tixel treatment can be a light or deep treatment depending on your skin condition and desired outcome. A light treatment may only have a downtime of one day and a deep treatment may have redness and fine crusting that lasts for a week. It will be your decision whether you want to take time off work during these days.

I had never been to Jade before and I must say I was impressed. Lisa was so informative about everything and didn’t try to talk me into anything. Answered all my questions and was very truthful in what Jade could and couldn’t do for me, which I really appreciated. Thank you for making this experience an enjoyable one.
