Titan Skin Tightening
The new Cutera® Titan® gives you an all-natural
option to actively turn back the clock on aging skin.
Using light energy to stimulate new collagen growth
deep beneath your skin’s surface, Titan can tighten
skin on your face, arms, abdomen, and legs. It’s an
ideal solution to enhance your youthful and healthy
appearance without surgery, recovery time, or injections.
How does the Cutera Titan work?
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.
The Titan Difference
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).
What areas respond best to the Titan procedure?
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.
Who can be treated?
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 physician can advise you if the Titan is right for you.
How many treatments will I need?
A single treatment has produced very good results for some patients.
Your physician will advise you as to the number and frequency
of treatments recommended for optimal results.
What happens after the treatment? Any side effects?
Immediately following the treatment, you may notice
some redness and mild swelling in the treated area.
Both should dissipate within a few hours. Consult with
your medical professional for complete information on
the benefits and risks of treatment.
When will I see results?
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.
What do treatments feel like?
With each Titan pulse, you will feel a brief heating sensation.
Some patients are more comfortable taking a mild pain reliever
beforehand. Many patients are comfortable without anything.
Your physician will advise you.
Has the Titan been tested and approved?
The Titan has been carefully studied in clinics around the world.
It is cleared for the treatment of wrinkles in Europe and for
general dermatologic use in Canada. In the US, it is cleared
for topical heating to increase local tissue temperatures and
circulation. An additional 510(k) clearance is pending in the
US for the treatment of wrinkles.
