As people age, the skin looses its youthful elasticity and healthy glow. Patients ready to fight back against these signs of early aging, but who want to avoid a painful surgical procedure or long recovery period, can find the results they desire with Cutera Titan. This noninvasive skin tightening procedure utilizes a cutting-edge infrared light to gently heat the dermis. This in turn, stimulates the body’s natural production of Collagen, a vital building block of healthy skin.
Titan is the first FDA approved light-based system for dermal heating. Titan can effectively improve skin elasticity and tone in any area, including the face, neck, jawline, arms, abdomen, and legs. The Cutera Titan provides more consistent and uniform results than other skin rejuvenating systems. *
The Ideal Titan Skin Tightening Candidate:
Both men and women make an idea candidate for a Titan procedure. No downtime is required, making the procedure perfect for busy individuals wanting an immediate improvement in their appearance. Patients should be in generally good health and have realistic expectations for the results before beginning a Titan treatment. *
The Titan Procedure:
The innovative Cutera Titan skin system does not require any anesthetic, although it may be added at the patient’s request. Using a small hand piece, the esthetician will carefully deliver small laser pulses across the target area. While a mild heating sensation can be felt with each pulse, the handpiece continuously cools to protect the skin’s surface. Mirror Mirror Beauty Boutique also uses the Zimmer Cooling device, to further increase a patient’s comfort level. A Titan treatment will normally take between one and three hours to complete. Depending on the extent of correction desired, most patients will need two to three treatments, spaced between three and four weeks apart. An immediate improvement can be seen following a Cutera Titan treatment. Over time, as new Collagen develops, the dramatic results will continue to increase. *
Recovery after a Titan Skin Tightening Treatment:
As soon as a Titan Skin treatment is over, patients are able to return to work or school. While a mild redness or swelling at the treatment site is normal, this will generally disappear within a few hours. Immediately after the procedure, patients will have noticeably tighter skin, and a more refreshed appearance. Over the following six to twelve weeks, the skin’s elasticity will continue to improve, as Collagen production is steadily increased.
Titan Skin Tightening may be combined with other cosmetic procedures, such as Limelight or Genesis, sometimes referred to as 3D Rejuvenation, for maximum benefits. There are also other excellent choices are available to further improve facial contours, smooth wrinkles, and reduce pore size, as well as to properly maintain results. Patients are encouraged to speak with their esthetician about the available options. *
