If you would like to see tighter, firmer skin, the Titan laser by Cutera will deliver the results that you are looking for! Titan is an all-natural option for skin tightening that requires no anesthesia, no surgery, nor injections.

Titan is often used for the face, legs, abdomen, and arms. For example, loose skin under the jaw line or the upper arm are great areas for skin tightening by Titan.

How it Works

Titan works to tighten skin by stimulating collagen deep under the surface of the skin. It uses state-of-the-art infrared light technology to heat the dermis that is located a few millimeters under the skin’s surface. This immediately causes the collagen to contract resulting in tighter skin. New collagen growth also occurs in the time between sessions, which provides noticeable tightening results.

The combination of light and energy used in Titan provides a uniform distribution of heat unlike other methods (like radiofrequency). The wavelengths are carefully curated to provide maximum results safely and effectively.

Since Titan targets the dermal layers under the skin, it is acceptable for any skin type—even patients with tanned skin. Men and women of all ages can benefit from skin tightening by Titan.

Titan is cleared for use in the United States for increasing the temperature of local tissue and for increased circulation. It is also cleared for the treatment of wrinkles in Europe.

The Procedure

Titan utilizes a hand piece that protects the epidermis, or surface of the skin, with a state-of-the-art cooling feature that lasts the duration of the session. This allows the laser to target very precise areas in the dermis while keeping the epidermis cool.

When the hand piece is activated to deliver the infrared light, there is a brief heating sensation. Most patients describe this sensation as not bothersome. Your medical professional can advise you on ways to make you more comfortable.

You do not need to do anything to prepare for your treatment. Afterward, you might notice some redness and minor swelling in the treatment area. These side effects will go away in a few hours and no downtime is required.

The Results

Many patients see results from their skin tightening treatment immediately. Typically gradual results are seen in the three to six month period following the treatment because it takes time for the new collagen to form and to subsequently tighten the skin.

Best results are seen after six sessions. Your medical professional can help you decide how many treatments are best based on the laxity of the areas being treated.
