The Cutera TITAN™ is one of the only FDA approved non-invasive skin tightening and face-lifting devices, meant to improve skin tone around the jawline, chin, and neck. It is the first tailored infrared light source utilizing special wavelength filters to diminish the signs of aging, laxity, drooping, sagging and wrinkled skin. This device can be used for face contouring, body sculpturing, and reducing cellulite on legs and abdomen. It is reported to be effective on hard-to-improve “hanging’” skin on older necks and upper arm areas.
This FDA-approved laser treatment is a tissue-heating device that uses infrared energy to heat beneath the skin’s surface. The heat contracts collagen beneath the skin and creates the appearance of smoother, more youthful-looking skin. Your skin is protected from any damage during the procedure, thanks to Titan’s continuous cooling mechanism, which is built right into the handpiece and controlled by one of our cosmetic nurse.
While the Titan laser cannot entirely duplicate the results of surgical lifting and tightening, it is an excellent option for people who do not want to have any cosmetic surgical procedures. And it is important to remember that most patients will need multiple treatments and annual maintenance for the best and most continuous results. When you call us and come in for your consultation appointment, our cosmetic nurse will talk to you about your specific needs and the results you are looking for in order to figure out how many Titan treatments will be best for you.
About the Infrared Wavelength (1100-1800nm)
The broadband spectrum of 1100 to 1800nm was selected and tailored for ideal water absorption and allows uniform heating of the dermis to produce volumetric heating. Volumetric heating, or heating at 1-2mm deep, is necessary to produce the desired clinical result and requires a sustained temperature increase in the dermis.
How does the Cutera Titan work?
Titan utilizes a safe, infrared light to heat the dermis well below the skin’s surface. This heating can cause immediate collagen contraction resulting in tighter skin. During the procedure, the skin’s surface (epidermis) is protected through continuous cooling with the Titan handpiece. After the laser skin tightening procedure, new collagen growth results in further tightening with the improvement of lax skin, folds and lines.
The Titan Difference
Titan employs light energy because it provides a more uniform distribution of energy for heating the deep dermis than other energy sources, such as RF (radiofrequency).
What areas respond best to the Titan procedure?
Patients have been successfully treated in many areas of the body where a skin is lax. Loose skin along the jaw line, under the chin and abdomen (after fat loss) have responded particularly well to the procedure.
Who can be treated?
Since the Titan procedure is heating tissue under the skin’s surface, patients of any skin type can be treated. Men and women of all ages and skin types are potential candidates. Many may use Titan as a laser treatment for loose neck skin to non surgical jowl tightening treatments.
How many treatments will I need?
A single skin tightening treatment has produced very good results for some patients. Your physician will advise you as to the number and frequency of treatments recommended for optimal results.
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 medical professional for complete information on the benefits and risks of treatment.
When will I see results?
Some patients see results immediately. However, for most patients, the results are gradual over a three to six month period as new collagen is formed and the skin tightens.
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 anything.
