The highly advanced Cutera Titan skin tightening treatment gives you a natural option to improve your skin tone. Cutera Titan uses a safe infrared light to heat the dermis below the skin’s surface. During the treatment procedure, the epidermis (skin’s top surface) is protected through continuous cooling with the handpiece, minimising any excessive skin irritations.
What areas can be treated?
Cutera Titan can be used on many areas of the body; the most commonly treated areas are the face (especially under the chin) and the abdomen.
Who is it for and what does it feel like?
This procedure heats your tissue under the skin’s surface so patients of any skin type or age can be treated safely. It will give you gentle warming of your skin. Most patients describe this experience very warming and relaxing, and many are comfortable without any medication.
How long does it take?
On average, the whole procedure takes around an hour. However, it can be short or long depending on the areas targeted.
What happens after the treatment?
The most common side effects are local swelling and slight reddening. However, all this usually lasts anywhere between a few hours to a day. To cover the redness, you can apply makeup. In rare instances, blistering can occur so please consult with us for full information on the benefits and risks of this treatment.
The results from Cutera Titan can last up to three years. However, we strongly recommend repeating the procedure every 1 or 2 years.
How many treatments will I need? A single treatment can produce very good results for many patients, however, it is very common for patients to have a few treatments over a few months. Please consult with us to discuss fully.
Difference between Titan and Laser Genesis?
Titan treats the deep skin layer to tighten skin and stimulate collagen production whereas Laser Genesis treats the middle skin layer. A combination of both Titan and Laser Genesis promotes more deep heating, thus produces better overall results.
