Unfortunately as the body ages, skin loses its elasticity. Many non-invasive procedures are now available to improve sagging skin without the down-time, pain, or expense of surgery. TITAN® is a patented modality that was one of the first FDA approved devices in the aesthetic industry proven to tighten skin on the face, neck, jaw-line, arms and some body areas. It continues to stand out in its field, using a cutting-edge infrared light to gently heat the deeper layers of the skin (dermis). The heat in turn stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen, building vitally healthy skin.
ARE YOU A CANDIDATE FOR SKIN TIGHTENING?
Consider yourself a good candidate for Skin Tightening with TITAN if you have mild to moderate skin laxity and are a non-smoker. Darker skin types are candidates, unlike with other devices, since this light-based platform distributes a uniform energy for heating the deep dermis without targeting the melanocytes.
THE BENEFITS OF SKIN TIGHTENING TREATMENTS WITH TITAN
TITAN targets collagen that has lost it’s elasticity and causes it to tighten back up. It also helps to stimulate new collagen to aide in the tightening process. The tightening process occurs over a period of 6 months, but you will see improvement in as early as 3-4 weeks.
WHAT TO EXPECT DURING A TITAN TREATMENT
TITAN does not require any topical anesthetic for the treatment and patients of any skin type can be treated. The treatment is often said to be relaxing, with a gentle rhythmic motion of heat passed over the treatment area with the laser hand piece. After a designated amount of time of heating, the laser automatically cools the skin to protect the skin’s surface Most candidates will need 2-3 treatments to obtain the desired result. Each of these sessions are scheduled 3-4 weeks apart. A dramatic result is often seen with some after a single treatment, but the collagen remodeling takes a full 4-12 weeks for its permanent result.
Immediately following the treatment, some redness and mild swelling might be noted in the treated area. This will dissipate within a few hours. Skin will have a noticeable brighter appearance. Over a period of 4-12 weeks, the skin’s elasticity will continue to improve as collagen production is steadily increased.
Combining TITAN with other laser treatments that treat other skin concerns, will create optimal benefits. Facial contouring, wrinkle reduction, diminished pore size, and smoother, brighter skin texture is maximized with combination light and laser therapies.
Social and business activities can be resumed immediately following a TITAN skin treatment. There is absolutely no downtime or discomfort, making this a perfect “lunch time laser” treatment!
