Acne affects up to 80% of the population at some point, mostly during teenage years, and is most commonly seen on the face, the upper part of the chest and the back. The dark spots that remain years after the breakouts are caused by inflammation during the healing process. If acne has been particularly severe, your body may have produced too much or too little tissue leading to a depression in the skin or heavy scarring. This can prove debilitating for some people who feel very self-conscious in social situations and job interviews.
The non-invasive Tixel treatment uses thermo-mechanical ablative technology to safely resurface, tighten and rejuvenate skin, including reducing acne scarring. It works in a similar way to laser resurfacing or chemical peels, destroying damaged skin cells and encouraging new cell turnover to harness the skin’s natural healing process.
