Skin Tightening

Known as the “non-surgical facelift”, the new Cutera Titan skin tightening treatment gives you an all natural option to actively turn back the clock on aging skin. Using light energy to stimulate new collagen growth deep beneath your skin’s surface, Titan can tighten skin on your face, arms, abdomen and legs. It’s an ideal solution to enhance your youthful and healthy appearance without surgery, recovery time or injections.

How does the Cutera Titan Skin Tightening Treatment 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 hand piece. After the 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 (radio frequency).

What areas respond best to the Titan skin tightening procedure?

Patients have been successfully treated on many areas of the body where skin is lax. Loose skin along the jaw line, under the chin, the abdomen and upper arm have responded particularly well to the procedure.

Who can be treated?

Since the Titan skin tightening 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.

How many treatments will I need?

A single treatment has produced very good results for some patients. Your technician will advise you as to the number and frequency of treatments recommended for optimal results. Most patients see best results with 3-5 treatments done every 4 weeks.

What happens after the treatment? Any side effects?

Immediately following the skin tightening treatment, you may notice some redness and mild swelling in the treated area. Both should dissipate within a few hours.

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 skin tightening 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. Your medical esthetician will advise you.

Has the Titan been tested and approved?

The Titan has been carefully studied in clinics around the world. It is cleared for the treatment of wrinkles in Europe and for general dermatological use in Canada.
