Titan® uses light energy to tighten the skin. Titan® can be used anywhere the skin is lax. It can raise the brow and jaw line or tighten the abdomen, back of upper arms and neck. After treatment, results may appear immediately or within a gradual three to six month period. New collagen is formed, and the skin becomes firmer. When Titan® is paired with Genesis after child birth, they not only tighten the skin, but lessen the appearance of stretch marks.
How does the 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. During the procedure, the skin’s surface (epidermis) is protected through continuous cooling with the Titan® handpiece. After the procedure, the new collagen growth results in further tightening and the development of a more youthful complexion with less lines, folds or looseness of the skin.
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 (radio frequency).
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 found on the abdomen, the back of the upper arms, along the jaw line and under the chin 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 have been successfully treated. 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. However, your physician will advise you as to the number and frequency recommended for optimal results.
What happens during and after treatments?
Titan® provides a uniform distribution of energy for heating the deep dermis, stimulating collagen growth. This results in tightening of the skin and subcutaneous tissue. With each Titan® pulse, you will feel a brief, mild heating sensation. Immediately after the treatment, you may notice some redness and mild swelling in the treated area. Both should dissipate within a few hours.
When will I see results?
ome patients see results immediately. For most patients, however, the results are gradual over a three to six month period, as new collagen is formed and the skin tightens.
Has the Titan® been tested and approved?
The Titan® has been carefully studied in numerous clinics worldwide. It is cleared for treatments of wrinkles in Europe and for general dermatological use in Canada. In the US it is cleared for topical heating to increase local tissue temperatures and circulation.
