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.
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).
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.
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. Your Dermatologist or Laser Technician can advise you if the Titan is right for you. 3-4 treatments are recommended at monthly intervals. Upon completion, maintenance treatments may be recommended every 12-18 months. Your Dermatologist/Laser Technician will discuss this with you.
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.
