Skin Tightening


The new Cutera Titan gives you an all-natural option to enhance skin tone. Titan® utilizes an infra red light to uniformly heat the dermis well below the skin surface. The mechanism for skin tightening requires sufficient dermal heating to achieve not only collagen remodeling, but also contraction. Skin tightening treatments require a greater and deeper heat delivery into the skin compared with wrinkle treatments, such as Laser Genesis.

With each Titan® pulse patients experience a brief heating sensation. The epidermis is protected during the heating phase with continuous contact cooling. Since the Titan® procedure heats tissue under the skin surface, patients of any skin type or age can be safely treated. Titan® can be utilized on almost any area of the body. The most common areas treated include the cheeks, jawline, under the chin, neck, arms and the abdomen.

Patients can expect to see subtle yet consistent results following each treatment session, without unwanted side effects such a bruising or excessive skin irritation. Results are progressive, and improvements will continue for several months. On average, individuals may require three treatments in order to achieve optimal results. Treatments can be performed in a relaxed manner without the use of topical anesthetics. Immediately following the treatment, patients may notice mild redness and swelling, which usually resolve in a few hours. Individuals may return to normal activities immediately following the treatment. Patients achieve skin tightening and secondary wrinkle reduction.

Patients may combine Titan® with other light-based treatments, in a process called 3D Rejuvenation™, for even better results.
