Skin Tightening with TITAN

It is highly unlikely that skin tightening treatments with Cutera's TITAN can cause areas of delineation. The laser uses infra-red heat energy to improve skin elasticity by providing safely delivered heat to the treated area.

I have never seen this with Titan

I have been using Titan now for about 4 years, and have never seen the dents that were seen in the original Thermage system. It is my understanding that the newer Thermage systems do not see this complication anymore. I think, as with any technology, the operator is of vital importance to the results.
