Using the Sentient Tixel® treatment for eyelid tightening and skin rejuvenation
As we age, our skin loses elasticity and begins to sag. This is particularly noticeable around the eyes, where the skin is thinner and more delicate than on other parts of the face. If you’ve been noticing that your upper eyelids are drooping or sagging, or that you have under-eye bags, you may believe that plastic surgery is your only option for eyelid rejuvenation.
Fortunately, Drs Molly Walterhoefer and Megan Casady Flahive of Current Dermatology and Cosmetic Center in Annapolis, Maryland offer an alternative to surgery. Tixel® is a revolutionary non-invasive, low downtime treatment that uses thermal energy instead of a scalp to achieve impressive results.
What is Tixel®?
Tixel® is a first-of-its-kind fractional resurfacing device that uses Thermal-Mechanical Action (TMA) Technology, to deliver targeted heat to the skin. Tixel® utilizes a medical-grade titanium tip containing 81 pyramid-shaped pins to create microscopic areas of thermal injury in the skin. This controlled injury triggers your body’s natural healing response to produce new collagen, ultimately resulting in tighter, smoother, and rejuvenated skin.
Tixel® is not a laser and does not use radiation or needles. As such, discomfort during treatment and post-treatment downtime are minimal. While Tixel® can be used anywhere that you may be noticing crepey skin such as above the knees, the backs of the arms, or the hands, Drs. Molly Walterhoefer and Megan Casady Flahive of Annapolis, Maryland, find it to be the perfect option for patients looking for eyelid tightening and undereye rejuvenation.
