Wish the skin on your face was tighter? It can be – with our skin firming laser treatment – Cutera’s Titan Skin Tightening.

This non-surgical treatment is minimally invasive as it employs infrared light energy to heat and contract the collagen under your skin. The results – a natural, youthful complexion.

The Titan is used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, loose skin areas along the jaw line, under the chin, neck, abdomen, and the back of upper arms.

The benefits are many. There is minimal discomfort compared to other skin tightening procedures, no recovery time, provides a uniform distribution of energy for an even tightening of the skin, is a non-surgical procedure, is non-invasive with no injections required, most researched and peer-reviewed infrared tightening procedure, and is able to be used on all skin types.

Results vary, but most patients require 1 – 3 treatments. The number of treatments will depend on the severity of the condition treated, which can be best determined through our Laser Specialists. Although most patients will see results after every treatment, they will continue to see the benefits of a Titantreatment up to six months post treatment. It takes time to see the results of collagen production, which relies on the body’s own natural healing process. Immediately following the procedure the skin will have a pink/red appearance as well as mild swelling which may last anywhere from 20 minutes to 48 hours post. Overall the skin may look and feel warm and tight.

Package of two treatments includes a complete cosmeceutical skin care line.

  1. 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 handpiece.  After the procedure, new collagen growth results in further tightening with the improvement of lax skin, folds and lines.

  2. 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).

  3. What areas respond best to the Titan procedure?

    Patients have been successfully treated on many areas of the body where the skin is lax.  Loose skin along the jaw line, under the chin, the abdomen and upper arm have responded particularly well to the procedure.

  4. What is a 2D?

    2D means we are treating 2 depths within the skin. Our Titan treatment is a 2D treatment as we also incorporate IPL with that appointment keeping the temperature of the skin up for a longer period of time to firm and even skin tone.

  5. Why are 3D treatments important?

    3D treatments use 3 technologies; Titan (deepest), Genesis (middle) and IPL (shallowest) to target all 3 depths within the skin. A 3D treatment will always have the best outcomes because the skin is being kept at a temperature where collagen is stimulated over a longer period of time.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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 your medical professional for complete information on the benefits and risks of treatment.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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 temperature and circulation.  An additional 510(k) clearance is pending in the US for the treatment of wrinkles.
