Procedure Summary:

Titan™

Indications: Skin tightening

Downtime: None

Anesthetic Needs: None

Typical Package: 3 treatments, 1 month apart

Titan™ is used for deep skin rejuvenation by tightening the skin of the cheeks, jowls and forehead. It improves skin laxity, and stimulates collagen growth through the delivery of light energy to the deep dermis of the skin. The results are the development of a more youthful complexion with less lines, folds and looseness of the skin. This is a perfect procedure for people who would like a “lift” without having to undergo surgery, anesthesia and lengthy downtime.

What areas respond best to the Titan™ procedure?

Titan™ treats many areas of the body where skin is lax. “Drooping” skin along the jaw line and under the chin have responded particularly well to the procedure. Laugh lines are improved significantly. Cheek bone areas are tightened and raised making them more prominent. Eyebrows are raised. Marionette lines around the mouth are plumped out. Loose skin on the abdomen, back of the upper arm can also be treated.

Who can be treated with Titan™?

Since the Titan™ procedure is heating tissue under the skin’s surface, patients of any skin type can be treated.

How many treatments will I need?

Usually three treatments are needed when treating the face and are usually spaced one month apart. The total number of treatments is based on the condition of the skin and the goals that are set.

What happens after the treatment?

Immediately following treatment, most patients notice redness and some experience mild swelling in the treatment area which dissipates within a few hours.

When will I see results?

Some patients see a small improvement right away after treatment, but full results usually don’t develop for 6 to 8 months because this treatment stimulates collagen to grow and it takes some time.

What do treatments feel like?

Where the treatment takes place, a brief heating sensation is felt and some people feel discomfort in the temporal area, but the sensation is completely manageable and does not linger. It is over before you can even complain about it. There is typically no discomfort after the procedure.

Titan™ utilizes a safe, infrared light energy to uniformly distribute heat to the dermis well below the skin’s surface. At the same time, the epidermis or skin’s surface is protected through continuous cooling. This process positively affects the deep collagen responsible for giving the skin that “tight,” youthful appearance by causing the existing collagen to contract and stimulating new collagen development.
