Skin Tightening Devices That Are Safe and Don't Cause Fat Loss

There were a lot of problems in the past with the first generation of radiofrequency tightening devices (Thermage). I know they have been resolved, but how can patients rest assured that the newer laser treatments for skin tightening and rejuvenation (Pearl, Titan) are safe and don't cause fat loss?

Titan for skin tightening

There were problems with fat loss from Thermage (Thermacool) treatments. This has never been the case with Titan. Thermage uses radiofrequency while Titan uses laser energy to tighten skin. We have used Titan since it was approved and we have never had a problem with fat loss. It works VERY well.
