TMA® TECHNOLOGY

ABOUT TMA®
THERMO-MECHANICAL
ACTION TECHNOLOGY

TMA® is a technology, specially developed by Novoxel, that’s forward in thinking and in its action. It uniquely combines motion and heat with the forward movement of a medical-grade titanium tip. This proprietary non-laser fractional skin resurfacing technology transfers thermal energy to skin very quickly and safely: energy is emitted through a matrix of tiny pyramid-shaped pins made of biocompatible materials covering a treatment area of 1cm². The pins are heated to a temperature of 400°C  and are self-disinfected.

ABOUT TMA® THERMO-MECHANICAL ACTION TECHNOLOGY

THE THERMAL EFFECT

THE THERMAL EFFECT

During treatment, the pins are introduced to the surface of the skin at a precisely-controlled speed and create brief contact with the skin lasting only a few milliseconds. This enables the thermal energy stored in the pins to be transferred to the skin.  The thermal transfer results in an array of tiny ablative (superficial ablation) coagulation sites. Because the tiny tip pyramids hold a limited amount of energy, burns and tissue charring are prevented. 

WHY IS THE PAIN RELATIVELY LOW?

The reason why pain is relatively low during treatment with Tixel® is primarily due to the transfer of a relatively lower amount of energy to the skin. This is made possible by utilization of an efficient energy transfer method (conduction) and the a long pulse duration (e.g. 10ms).
