FAQs: Tixel in Mill Valley, CA
Am I a good candidate for Tixel?
Tixel is ideal for patients who want to rejuvenate delicate areas of the skin, like the face, eyelids, neck and décolleté. Tixel is safe for almost all skin types and tones, making it a useful treatment for those with darker skin tones. It’s also safe for skin with melasma and/or acne. The depth and duration of protrusion is adjustable, meaning we can fully customize your treatment based on your skin concerns, your skin type and your desired results.
What can I expect during my Tixel treatment?
There is minimal downtime associated with Tixel. Your skin may feel very warm, similar to a sunburn, and you may experience swelling for several days after treatment, especially around the eye area. Makeup can be worn 24 hours after treatment. Micro-crusting typically appears the day following your treatment, but you’re free to wear makeup to cover it up until it subsides, usually in a matter of days.
When will I see my results?
Improvements will develop in the weeks following treatment as your collagen is replenished. Optimal results typically appear after four to six weeks and can last one to two years.
How many treatments will I need?
After your personal consultation with Dr. Jamali, you will be given a customized treatment plan for your individual needs. Most patients need a series of three treatments spaced four to six weeks apart.
