TITAN Can Damage the Skin - Colorado Springs, CO

I had a TITAN procedure about six weeks ago in an attempt to rejuvenate my aging skin. I wanted a more natural approach to "lifting" and what could be better than to stimulate your own collagen to tighten lax skin?

Well, don't believe the hype. The day after the procedure, I noticed ridges across my forehead that were not there before the procedure. I told the practitioner about it over the phone but she did not seem very concerned. I decided that it might just be swelling and to take a wait-and-see approach. Since the ridges have not gone away since the procedure over six weeks ago, I can only assume that the TITAN laser did irreparable damage to the skin on my forehead. I have not noticed any improvement of any kind to the other parts of my face or neck.

I am canceling the remaining TITAN appointments (I purchased a package of three procedures) and will be seeing a dermatologist to see if I can do something to repair the damage.

I certainly WOULD NOT recommend this procedure.

I had a Titan laser procedure performed on my face and neck seven weeks ago. I was hoping to have some lifting around the corners of my mouth and under my chin.

The day after the procedure, I noticed ridges across my forehead that were not there before the procedure. I assumed that this was swelling and would go away. It has not and now I am left with this damage to my forehead.

I can only hope that a dermatologist can help put my skin back to its original condition.

Buyer beware!

It has now been about nine months since I had this TITAN procedure. The ridges across my forehead have healed slightly but not completely (and no, I am not looking up in the "after" photo).

I wrote a complaint letter earlier this year to the "medical spa" that performed the procedure and received a partial refund of my money. Because I had signed a "release from liability" form before the procedure, I felt that I did not have any legal options.

I also have not received any acceptable recommendations for repairing the damage. Having fillers injected into the ridges is not a solution that I will be pursuing.

Therefore, I will continue to use Retinol and Vitamin C cream on my face, eat a good healthy diet (recommended by my dermatologist) and use sunscreen (also recommended by my dermatologist).

I WOULD NOT recommend this procedure to anyone. Those who do recommend it are welcome to their opinions. If you are considering it, do your homework and make sure that you have some recourse if it does not work out.

Good luck. I wish all of you beautiful skin!
