The Cutera Titan Laser face lift technology uses a unique light source to create a thermal profile in the dermis with the goal of tightening facial laxity and stimulating collagen growth.
Titan is the first tailored infrared light source for sustained deep dermal heating with the most frequent use on the face, submental area, neck and abdomen.
About the Infrared Wavelength
The broadband spectrum of 1100 to 1800nm was selected and tailored for ideal water absorption and allows uniform and even heating of the dermis to produce volumetric heating. Volumetric heating, 1-2mm deep, is necessary to produce the desired clinical result and requires sustained temperature increase in the dermis. Further, the infrared light-based approach provides uniform consistent heating independent of skin structure, i.e. dermal thickness or fat layers.
The Cutera Titan® gives you an all-natural option to enhance skin tone. Titan uses light energy to heat the dermis deep beneath your skin’s surface. Without surgery, recovery time, or injections, Titan is an ideal solution for your face, abdomen, arms and more.
Titan uses a safe infrared light to heat the dermis well below the skin’s surface. During the procedure, the skin’s surface (epidermis) is protected through continuous cooling with the Titan handpiece.
Titan’s light-based platform provides a more uniform distribution of energy for heating the deep dermis than other energy sources, such as RF (radio-frequency).
Since the Titan procedure heats tissue under the skin’s surface, patients of any skin type or age can be treated. Your practitioner can advise you if the Titan is right for you.
