Many people who are looking for non-invasive ways to tighten sagging skin have likely come across Titan skin tightening treatments or Titan Laser at one point or another. These treatments, which use infrared lights to penetrate the skin and boost collagen production, usually require little to no healing time and lack the kind of side effects that are common with other types of cosmetic surgery. Due to its non-invasive property the procedure is safe for people of any skin type or and age.
Cutera’s Titan Skin Tightening Therapy is a FDA-approved, all-natural, non-invasive, anti-aging solution for wrinkles, fine lines and sagging skin. This light-based treatment harnesses infrared light energy to heat the deep dermis just below the skin’s surface immediately followed by a therapeutic cooling head for optimal outcome with no discomfort. This heat causes immediate collagen contraction and stimulates new collagen production over time, resulting in tighter, brighter skin and a significant reduction in sags and wrinkles.
All of Cutera’s Laser treatments are completed with applications of: skin-specific serums, replenishing gels, calming balm, hydrators and broad spectrum SPF.
How does it work?Cutera’s Titan utilizes a safe infrared light to heat the dermis just below the skin’s surface and works to boost collagen production. Collagen is a protein in your skin that plays a big role in how firm your skin is, but over time the body decreases its production, leading to sagging skin and wrinkles. During the procedure, the epidermis or the skin’s top surface is protected through ultrasound gel and continuous cooling with Cutera’s Titan handpiece.
What areas respond best to the Titan procedure?Patients have been successfully treated on many areas of the body. The most common areas treated are the jawline, under the chin, and the abdomen.
What does the procedure feel like?You will experience a brief warming of your skin’s surface during the procedure, however Titan skin tightening wand delivers the infrared energy and a cooling sensation simultaneously, which keeps the epidermal layer from becoming overheated. The length of Titan skin tightening treatments may vary depending on which part of the body is treated.
How many treatments will I need?Although a single treatment has produced very good results for many clients, it is common for clients to have 4 to 6 treatments over a few months.
Is there any downtime after the treatments?There is minimal to no downtime associated with these treatments. Immediately following the treatment you may notice some redness and mild swelling in the treated area, both of which disappear within a few hours after the treatment.
Can I receive the treatment if I am currently on medication?A high percentage of certain ingredients may increase sensitivity. Discontinue use of any medications, topical or otherwise, five days before and after treatment. Consult your physician before discontinuing use of any prescription. Those who use prescription retinoid creams to treat severe acne should speak to their dermatologist before undergoing the procedure, or discontinue use of such creams at least six months before getting the treatment, as the infrared energy may react with the medication and cause further problems. Skin that is tattooed cannot be treated with Titan skin tightening treatments, as the ink will interfere with the level of penetration by infrared light.
