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, 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 infrared light travels through the to the deeper layers of the skin causing tightening of the collagen architecture. Because the heat is applied deep within the skin, some swelling and redness may be seen. The procedure takes approximately one hour. The results of Titan Skin Tightening Technology may be seen within a few weeks of the treatment, however the full benefits are usually not observed for three to six months. This is probably the most difficult part of this procedure as the effects of the treatment are not seen immediately. The advantage of the Titan over the therma-lifting techniques is that the skin and underlying fat is heated uniformly avoiding differential heating of the fat; therefore, the risks of dents and atrophy of the skin is much less likely.
HOW IS THE TITAN DIFFERENT FROM ITS COMPETITORS?
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). The TITAN procedure does not injure fat
due to it's unique optical energy source. TITAN also works wonderfully with other non-ablative technologies and other forms of intense pulsed light photofacials as part of your skin care maintenance program.
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 on the abdomen, back of the upper arm, 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. Our consultant 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 many patients. Our consultant will advise you as to the number and frequency of treatments recommended for optimal results. The Titan is a great treatment to incorporate into your skin care maintenance program.
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. Our consultant can provide you with complete information on the benefits and risks of treatment.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Some patients see results immediately. 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 THE 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.
HAS THE TITAN BEEN TESTED AND APPROVED?
Yes the Titan is FDA-approved.
