Titan, non-invasive skin tightening treatment

How do I know if I need Titan?

Titan is perfect for anyone who is looking to tighten and lift their jowls, neck, brows, cheeks, and body. 

How does Titan work?

The Titan utilizes a pulsed broadband infrared source of 850-3000nm. Certain 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 and existing collagen to tighten over time. Improvement with Titan is usually seen in two to four treatments, with a maintenance treatment needed once to twice a year.

What are the risks and side effects?

The Titan is is very tolerable and safe. Short-term immediate side effects include prolonged redness at the area being treated, although this usually dissipates before you leave the office or within a couple of hours. Swelling can occur and could last for a few days to a week. The treatment area may also become temporarily white (blanching) following a treatment. Blanching typically resolves within 24 hours.

Other rare potential other side effects are bruising, skin wounds, infection and scarring, dyspigmentation, altered sensation, and surface irregularities.

How will I look and feel during and after the treatment?

Tissue tightening treatments have no downtime and you can return to your normal activities the same day.  Immediately after the treatment(s), there may be some redness or swelling at the area being treated, which usually dissipates within the hour or by the end of the day but rarely persists for a few days. You are able to apply makeup or sunscreen immediately after the procedure and go back to your daily activities.
