Introducing the revolutionary Tixel device, a non-invasive treatment that will transform your skin and restore its youthful radiance. Revival is the third aesthetic company to have this device in the state of Georgia and the first in Atlanta. 


The Tixel device utilizes state-of-the-art technology to deliver remarkable results without the need for needles or downtime. It harnesses the power of controlled heat to rejuvenate your skin and address a wide range of concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, uneven texture, and acne scars. One of the most exciting parts of tixel is the ability to treat the eye area! No other device is approved or designed to treat the sensitive eye area. 

Our highly skilled and experienced professionals will guide you through the entire Tixel treatment process, ensuring your comfort and safety. The procedure begins with a gentle application of the Tixel tip to your skin, which releases precise and controlled thermal energy. This energy stimulates collagen production, tightens the skin, and encourages cellular turnover.

One of the unique advantages of Tixel is its versatility. Revival offers a variety of treatment options tailored to your individual needs, ranging from superficial rejuvenation to more intensive resurfacing. The flexibility of the Tixel device allows us to customize your treatment plan, ensuring optimal results for your specific concerns.

Unlike other ablative treatments, Tixel is a gentle procedure that minimizes discomfort and reduces recovery time. You can expect a sensation similar to a warm prickling or light tingling during the treatment, but rest assured that it is well-tolerated by most individuals.

Following your Tixel session, you'll notice an immediate improvement in skin texture and tone. Over time, as collagen continues to regenerate, you'll experience further enhancement in skin elasticity, firmness, and overall youthfulness.

At Revival, we are passionate about helping you achieve your skincare goals. The Tixel device is just one of the many innovative treatments we offer to enhance your natural beauty and boost your confidence. We invite you to schedule a consultation with our knowledgeable team, who will assess your skin and recommend the most suitable Tixel treatment plan for you.

before your appointment

Tixel is a treatment that applies heat directly to the skin to create a superficial heated zones that stimulate collagen production.  This makes Tixel a perfect treatment for fine lines and wrinkles, crepey skin, discoloration, acne scarring and create tightening.  It is usually done in a series of three to four treatments performed every 4 to 6 weeks.  Some people may require additional treatment to achieve desired results.  The treatment causes redness and swelling that can last for as little as 3 days with light treatments up to 10 days with more aggressive treatments.

after your appointment

  • Apply provided topical if needed 1-2 hour(s) for the 6 hours following your treatment.

  • Do not use any products on your skin except what you were given by your provider. No moisturizers, makeup or sunscreen.

  • No exercise.

  • Avoid the sun.

  • Avoid hot baths and showers

  • Drink lots of water.

  • Avoid things that reduce inflammation, like ibuprofen, antihistamines, and ice.

  • Sleep with your head elevated to reduce swelling.

After 24h

  • No exercise if you still have swelling.

  • Avoid the sun.

  • Drink lots of water.

  • You may now use makeup and sunscreen.

  • You may resume your normal skincare routine excluding retinols, glycolic acids and vitamin C.

  • You may resume use of Retinols, vitamin C serums and glycolic acids once most of your skin has healed.

Until your skin is healed, AVOID: smoking, excessive alcohol intake, exfoliation


You may expect:

  • A sensation of heat, like a very strong sunburn may last for several hours on the day of treatment.

  • Redness, swelling and treatment marks may last for 3 to 10 days depending on the level of treatment.

  • Sloughing of skin with washing on days 3 to 5.


You should contact the office with unusual symptoms like excessive pain, oozing, crusting, blistering, or reappearance of swelling after the initial swelling has resolved.

what you need to know

Do not plan your treatment if you have an important event within 2 weeks.

Avoid sun exposure for 24 hours prior to your procedure.  If you have been over exposed to the sun (sunburn) the days preceding your appointment, please call our office to reschedule your appointment.

Avoid spray or self-tanners for 1 wk prior to your procedure.

Avoid all other skin treatments and procedures 2 to 4 weeks prior to your treatment.

If using Accutane, a 6 month waiting period after discontinuation of medications is required as isotretinoin use may impair healing and increase the risk of scar formation.

Avoid anti-histamine and anti-inflammatory drugs one week prior to treatment.  These negate the effects of the procedure.

If you are prone to cold sores (oral herpes simplex), take your prescribed medication (Famvir, famcyclovir, Valtrex, valacyclovir, acyclovir) as written in the 48 hours prior to your treatment.  If you are in need of a prescription, please contact the office.

  • How is Tixel different from microneedling and RF microneedling?
    Primarily, Tixel is non-invasive, whereas microneedling treatments with and without RF are invasive. Additionally, both providers and patients report more visible tightening and wrinkle reduction with Tixel when compared to microneedling and RF microneedling. Unlike microneedling, there is no bleeding and patients report that Tixel is more comfortable, and there is no “unpleasant buzzing.” Compared to RF microneedling, patients also report that Tixel is less painful. Additionally, Tixel transfers notably less energy/heat to the surrounding tissue than RF microneedling, making Tixel safe to use with melasma patients. Please note: microneedling and RF microneedling offer patients great benefits and some providers state that they have used it in combination with Tixel.
  • Are there any potential adverse effects?
    Tixel is well-tolerated. Our team goes through rigorous trainings to ensure the safe use of these devices. In the same manner as all fractional skin treatment devices, there is some risk of: temporary swelling longer than few hours, which does not recover without treatment, skin redness longer than two weeks, pain or burning sensation longer than a few hours/is not tolerable, the forming of large scabs or scabs lasting more than 15 days, significant/thick skin peeling or any peeling lasting more than 2 weeks, hyper pigmentation, hypo pigmentation, sensitivity to sun exposure, local burns, scars, herpes simplex, and local bacterial infection. In the case of any occurrence of any side-complications or adverse effects, it is imperative to consult with your physician within a short period.
  • How much downtime after Tixel treatment?
    Because the outermost layer of the skin remains intact after Tixel treatment, downtime is minimal. Of course, lower settings result in less downtime than more aggressive settings. Individual responses will vary based off settings used, patient genetic factors, compliance with post-care instructions, and overall skin health. Typically, patients are advised that they may have up to 3 days of mild swelling (especially around the eyes) and roughness to their skin for 5 to 7 days. Patients may wear makeup after 24 hours, and most return to normal activity (including social interaction and work) within hours post-treatment.
  • How is Tixel different from an Intense Pulsed Light?
    Tixel is not a light-based treatment like IPL. Instead, it utilizes heat applied directly to the skin in a controlled manner to create a superficial fractional coagulation sites. This system transfers less heat to the surrounding tissues than IPL, so it is safe to use in patients with dark skin and melasma. While IPL is a better choice for treatment of superficial pigment, it does not offer the tightening and resurfacing that Tixel does.
  • What does it feel like?
    Tixel is well-tolerated. Many patients can be treated without anesthetic. Use of chilled air and topical numbing may increase patient comfort. Most patients report feeling heat at the treatment site. They occasionally report a mild sharp sensation that they describe as like microneedling, but less intense.
  • How is Tixel different from a fractional ablative laser?
    Tixel is not a laser. At higher settings, providers report similar results to their fractional ablative lasers. With the Tixel, the stratum corneum (the outermost layer of the skin) remains intact, making it an easier recovery with significantly less downtime. Patients have no oozing or bleeding and report significantly less swelling. Additionally, Tixel patients can apply sunscreen and makeup just 24 hours post-treatment, allowing patients to return to normal activities quickly and without visible wound healing.
  • How many treatments does it take?
    For skin rejuvenation, we recommend 3 treatments, scheduled once every 4 to 6 weeks, followed by one to two maintenance treatments within the year. If you are treating a more difficult issue, like acne scarring, or you are using lower settings, it may take more treatments.
  • How does Thermal-Mechanical Action (TMA) TechnologyTM work?
    Thermal-Mechanical Action TechnologyTM combines direct heat with precisely controlled contact time on skin. A self-sterilizing titanium tip with 81 blunt micro-pyramids is heated to 400 degrees Celsius, which pulses to contact the skin briefly. Each pulse creates tiny micro-coagulation sites, which result in neocollagenesis- also known as new collagen growth. It is not invasive and the stratum corneum remains intact.
  • How much does a treatment cost?
    Cost is individualized per customer. Make sure to set up a consultation to get accurate treatment costs for your custom treatments.
