Titan by Cutera is a nonsurgical process that uses infrared laser technology to tone, lift, and tighten skin that is lax or saggy.
Titan works to tighten skin by targeting the collagen in two ways. It first heats weakened, stretched collagen, usually caused by aging and responsible for sagging skin, which causes it to shrink and thicken. It also triggers the body’s self-healing properties by creating micro-injuries to the dermal layer, which in turn jumpstarts the production of collagen in the following months for tighter skin and a more youthful look.
Yes, it’s quite safe. An infrared light gently heats the deep layers of the skin, while a special continuous cooling feature constantly protects the upper layers of skin. This allows Titan to deep-heat the collagen layer of the skin and help rebuild it while not adversely impacting the epidermis.
Skin tightening treatment with Titan is comfortable and practically painless, though a brief heating sensation may be felt with each pulse of the Titan handpiece. Although no anesthesia is required, a topical numbing cream can be applied prior to treatment to ensure the most comfortable treatment.
A Titan facial skin tightening procedure takes about an hour.
While some patients see results instantly, the general expectation is that you should see gradual results in 3-6 months while the new collagen is produced, which leads to the expected skin tightening.
It depends on your aesthetic goals and skin condition, but you can expect a series of 1-3 treatments every 3-4 weeks. Some patients see the results they want after a single treatment. The only way to know how many treatments you need, and how often, to achieve your goals is to schedule a consultation with the specialists at EllEve Med Spa.
Little to no recovery time is needed in the vast majority of cases, and most patients immediately resume their regularly planned activities.
Because Titan gently heats the deep layers of the skin without adversely impacting the upper layer, side effects are minimal. You may experience redness, irritation, or mild swelling around the treated area immediately following the procedure, but these should fade within hours.
This differs from person to person, but the general thought is that the better you care for your skin post-treatment and between sessions, the longer you’ll enjoy the results. To ensure that you experience these optimal results for as long as possible, maintenance sessions every 12 months are recommended.
Women and men of all ages and all skin types (even tanned skin) are ideal candidates for Titan skin tightening. To ensure that it’s the right treatment for you, schedule a consultation at EllEve Med Spa to find out more.
Titan’s laser light energy distributes energy more evenly so that it heats the dermis deep, which helps make it a more comfortable, yet more effective, procedure.
