Titan Skin Tightening is a non-invasive procedure that can help treat mild laxity and improve the appearance of folds and lines. It uses a safe, infrared light that creates deep dermal heating to stimulate collagen and tighten the skin without cuts or needles. But how effective is it? What can I expect after a Titan Skin Tightening treatment?
The basics of Titan
Titan is a US FDA-cleared for non-invasive skin tightening and enhancing the skin tone on the face, neck, and other areas of the body. It features a handheld device that emits a safe, infrared light and heats the dermis well below the skin surface. It can improve the skin’s elasticity and firmness without anesthesia or longer downtime.
Titan works in two ways:
- It heats the weakened collagen in the skin, causing it to contract and thicken
- It triggers the body’s self-healing properties, creating micro-injuries in the dermis. This then jumpstarts collagen production.
Titan Skin Tightening is effective for treating or improving mild to moderate skin laxity, including jowls and sagging skin in the face and other parts of the body. Treatable areas include:
- Eye area
- Jawline or under the chin
- Upper arms
What to expect after the treatment
While you may be able to see improvements after a single session, you’ll need three to four treatments for optimal results. Significant changes appear within a three- to six-month period, the time when the new collagen starts to tighten the skin. You can expect further improvement in mild laxity in the following months.
Here are the other things you can expect:
The procedure: You may feel a brief warm sensation during the procedure, but most patients find it comfortable. You may also be glad to know that the skin is protected with continuous cooling, which only means that it allows effective dermal heating without harming the epidermis.
Side effects and downtime: There may be some redness in the treatment area, but this usually dissipates within a few hours. You can also expect some swelling that can last for a few days to weeks. There is minimal to no downtime, so you can immediately go back to your normal routines.
Longevity of results: The procedure is non-invasive and the results are not permanent. They can last between one and two years, but this can still vary from patient to patient. It is also important to note that the skin continues to age, so an annual maintenance treatment is recommended.
How can Titan help you turn back the clock?
New collagen growth leads to further firming and tightening of the skin, while also improving lines and folds. You may also be glad to know that Titan provides a more uniform distribution of energy for heating the deep dermis than other energy sources. The controlled delivery of light pulses also limits the depth of heat penetration to deeper tissues.
You can turn Titan for:
- Treating mild to moderate skin laxity on the face, jowls, and neck
- Tightening the skin on other areas of the body
- Enhancing your skin tone for a more youthful appearance
- Stimulating collagen production
Other benefits of this non-invasive skin tightening procedure include:
- Immediate and continuous results
- Effective for both men and women (and all skin types)
- Gentle heating with continuous cooling
- Versatile treatment for sagging skin (face and body)
