The Cutera Titan uses infrared light to stimulate collagen formation underneath your outer layer of skin in order to give a tighter look over time. The Titan treatment is great for mild laxity for people in their 30’s or 40’s, and the procedure has no pain or downtime, and can be used on all skin types and ethnicities. Titan is part of our 3D laser therapy that covers tightening, sun damage, and texture, all in one effective treatment.
Q: How does Titan work?
A: Titan utilizes a pulsed broadband infrared light source of 850nm-3000nm. These light energies can be used to heat deeper layers of the skin while protecting the surface of the skin. This heating activates fibroblasts signaling new collagen to form (thickening the skin) and existing collagen to contract and tighten for the following several months.
Q: How do I know if I need Titan?
A: Titan is perfect for anyone who is looking to start tightening and lift their jowls, neck, cheeks, and forehead. We prefer this treatment for someone in their 30’s or 40’s who are not quite ready, or not a candidate for, the other advanced tightening procedures.
Q: How does Titan compare to other tightening devices?
A: Titan is a great introductory tightening treatment. If laxity is more moderate to severe, we recommend Ultherapy or Arvati by Thermi.
Q: What results can I expect from the Titan Skin Tightening treatment?
A: Best results may be seen 1-3 months post a series of treatments, as it takes this time for our collagen to rebuild. Results in neck, midface, and forehead laxity with be improved over several months, potentially up to a year.
Q: How many Titan treatments do I need?
A: Improvement with Titan may be seen in three to four treatments. Although in some people the results from a treatment are seen immediately, in most patients they will appear gradually over 3-6 months.
Q:Who shouldn’t have the Titan Skin Tightening?
A: You should not have treatment if you are pregnant or have been on Accutane within the past 6 months. It is also not for more moderate to severe laxity, as we have other treatments for more advanced cases of lack of elasticity.
Q: How will I look and feel during and after the treatment?
A: Titan has no downtime and you can return to your normal activities the same day. Immediately after the treatment, there may be some redness, which usually dissipates within the hour. You are able to apply makeup or sunscreen immediately after the procedure and go back to your daily activities as this is a no downtime procedure.
