Are you bothered by jowls or sagging skin in your face and other areas of the body? Titan Skin Tightening by Cutera might be the treatment for you! This US FDA-cleared procedure uses infrared light to stimulate collagen growth, which then gives your skin a tighter appearance over time.
What exactly is Titan and how does it work?
As previously mentioned, Titan is a US FDA-cleared aesthetic device that uses laser light technology to promote new collagen production. The procedure can tighten and enhance skin tone on the face, chin, jawline, neck, and other areas of the body. This can also improve skin’s elasticity and firmness without anesthetics or downtime.
The procedure gently heats the dermis by emitting a specified light. This is absorbed by the water in the skin, which then converts the light energy to heat. The generated heat prompts collagen production, resulting in tighter skin over time. It also brings the benefit of a more youthful complexion with less folds, lines, and skin looseness.
What makes Titan unique?
The use of light energy to stimulate collagen is not the only thing that makes Titan unique. Continue reading to find out why this procedure is an ideal solution to enhance your youthful and healthy appearance.
1. More uniform distribution of energy
The light-based platform of Titan offers a more uniform distribution of energy for heating the deep dermis than other sources of energy (like radiofrequency). Also, the controlled delivery of infrared light pulses creates precise dermal heating, while also limiting the heat’s penetration depth to the deeper tissues.
2. Versatile treatment for sagging skin
Titan can treat almost any area of the body displaying laxity. Loose skin under the chin and along the jawline, as well as the abdomen and upper arms respond particularly well to the skin tightening procedure. Many also turn to Titan to tone, lift, and tighten skin on the face and neck area.
Common uses of the treatment include:
- Jowls (sagging skin below the chin or jawline)
- Loose or sagging skin on the neck
- Loose skin in the abdomen
- Mild to moderate skin laxity (best results)
3. Virtually pain-free
It is normal to experience a brief heating sensation with each Titan pulse. Many patients feel comfortable without taking any mild pain reliever, but you can do so if you feel you need to. You may notice some redness and mild swelling after the treatment, but this resolves within a few hours.
You may also be glad to know that the Titan handpiece gently warms the area and then cools it immediately. The heating leads to collagen contraction while the continuous cooling preserves the outer layer of the skin. The Titan’s technology is also different, so the sensation is nothing like other laser treatments like vein therapy or hair removal.
4. Almost anyone is a candidate
Anyone looking to lift and tighten sagging jowls, neck, and cheeks can consider Titan. It can also be an ideal treatment if you’re not ready or not qualified for surgery or other skin tightening procedures. Titan Skin Tightening is effective for both men and women and suitable for all skin types.
5. Immediate and continuous results
With Titan Skin Tightening, you can see results almost immediately. Optimal results, however, appear within a period of 3 to 6 months as the new collagen is formed and tightens the skin. New collagen growth leads to further tightening, along with the improvement of folds, lines, and lax skin.
One session of Titan can produce noticeable improvements, but 3 to 4 treatments may be recommended to achieve your desired results. A consultation with an aesthetic doctor will let you know more about the procedure, as well as the numbers of sessions recommended for optimal results.
6. The 2D Titan-Genesis Skin Rejuvenation
Titan can also be combined with another non-invasive procedure like Laser Genesis. The combination of two treatments can improve skin’s texture and firmness for a more youthful complexion. Laser Genesis uses an innovative laser technology to stimulate collagen regrowth and treat lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, scars, and redness.
Both men and women can benefit from the results of this combination treatment. You can learn more about the 2D skin rejuvenation by reading our previous post.
