The Titan™ Laser Facelift is the most remarkable development in cosmetic technology today. You can achieve a non-surgical facelift or tummy tuck with minimal pain, no down time. The procedure is an extremely safe, a non-surgical process that utilizes an infrared optical light source to tighten skin and reverse the signs of aging with minimal to no side-effects.
More Information – The Titan
The procedure that many are calling an effective alternative to a face lift is known as the Titan™Procedure. The Titan™ like is one of a new breed of skin lasers that offer patients skin treatments marked by minimal if any pain or discomfort. The laser works by stimulating the collagen that lies below the surface of skin. When the skin ages collagen fibers will stretch resulting in sagging skin. TheTitan™ Laser heats the collagen layer which results in it contracting and thickening. Additionally it causes the formation of minute injuries in the dermal layer of the skin. These “injuries” result in the production of collagen to occur.
The procedure can be utilized on a variety of areas including the face, neck and body. The most frequent areas receiving Titan™ Laser treatment is the facial area. In the facial area the forehead, neck, cheeks and jowl are the most popular areas for treatment. In addition other regions such as the stomach, thighs, and arms can also be effectively treated. The procedure is especially effective at treating the more difficult regions of the body such as the knee and elbows regions.
Titan™ uses a safe infrared light to heat the dermis well below the skin’s surface. During the procedure, the skin’s surface (epidermis) is protected through continuous cooling with the Titan™handpiece. Titan’s light-based platform provides a more uniform distribution of energy for heating the deep dermis than other energy sources, such as RF (radio-frequency).
Length and details of the Titan procedure
The Cutera Titan™ laser ( a non surgical approach to tighen your loose skin) gives you an all-natural option to enhance skin tone. Titan™ uses light energy to heat the dermis deep beneath your skin’s surface. Without surgery, recovery time, or injections, Titan™ is an ideal solution for your face, abdomen, arms and more.
Procedure sessions can last from a minimum of 10 minutes to over one hour, based on your doctor’s treatment approach. A numbing cream is applied to the patients treatment areas, but there is little in the way of pain during the procedure. The sensation during the procedure can best be described as a pulse of heat which continually cycles throughout the treatment.
Risks and/or complications related to the Titan procedure
Individuals receiving treatment indicate the procedure is almost free of pain. There are few if any side effects associated with treatment via the Titan™ Laser. Patients may experience slight redness that usually will fade after an hour. Any swelling that occurs should subside within a day. Individuals that receive treatment via the Titan™ Laser may immediately return to work.
What makes the Titan™ procedure popular is its minimal impact. The procedure is not surgical, but often rivals results from traditional forms of facial surgery. Furthermore the skin surface is not damaged as the procedure does not extend below the dermis region.
