Titan- Infra-red skin tightening
Make it Tight.
The Titan by Cutera uses infrared technology to gently heat the deep dermis to stimulate collagen and tighten skin. The treatment helps to achieve tighter, smoother and younger looking skin without surgery, downtime, or injections. Common treatment areas are the face, jaw, neck, chest, abdomen, arms and above the knees.
While other skin rejuvenation treatments provide temporary results that diminish over time, the Titan’s ability to promote your skin’s own natural ability to build collagen produces longer lasting results of six months or even longer. The treatment is right for you if you are looking to tighten skin laxity that is due to collagen loss.
WHAT IT CAN DO.
Tighten existing collagen to bring a natural lifting effect to the skin
Penetrate into the deeper layers of the skin to help correct visible signs of aging at the source
Stimulate your skin’s natural healing response for sustainable, continuous improvements to the skin
Target underlying tissues without removing or damaging the skin surface for minimal to no downtime
Titan may be combined with the Laser Genesis or IPL treatment to further enhance facial contouring, skin tightening, and definition.
+ How does the Titan® work?
Titan utilizes a safe infrared light to heat the dermis
well below the skin’s surface. During the
procedure, the skin’s top surface (epidermis) is
protected through continuous cooling with the
+ 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.
+ Who can be treated?
Since the Titan procedure heats tissue under the
skin’s surface, patients of any skin type or age can
be treated. Your physician can advise you if the
Titan is right for you. We provide complimentary consultations to help you in your decision.
+ How many treatments will I need?
Although a single treatment has produced
good results for many patients, two to four treatments are recommended for optimal and longer lasting results. We offer package pricing to enable greater savings per treatment.
+ What happens after the treatment?
Immediately following the treatment, you may
notice some redness and mild swelling in the
treated area. Both should dissipate within a few
hours. Consult with your physician for complete
information on the benefits and risks of treatment.
+ What do treatments feel like?
With each Titan pulse you will feel a brief heating
sensation. Some patients are more comfortable
taking a mild pain reliever beforehand. Many
patients are comfortable without any medication. A cooling gel is applied during the treatment to help make the procedure as comfortable as possible.
+ When will I see results?
Some patients may see results immediately. However most patients will continue to see gradual results over a three to six month period.
+ How does the Titan compare to Thermage?
Thermage uses Radiofrequency (RF) technology which uses a longer wavelength that ultimately reaches beyond the dermis into the fat. This can cause fat necrosis and an uneven dimpling of the skin. Thermage is also more painful often requiring anesthesia or a nerve block.
Titan uses Infrared (IR) technology which provides a more uniform distribution of heat. It is less painful than Thermage and has a higher satisfaction rate among patients treated.
