The best Titan candidates are those who want to tighten abdominal, knee, arm or elbow skin. This technology is not meant to replace a more aggressive surgical procedure but rather, is an ideal alternative for a younger person just beginning to see hanging skin on the body. The treatment can be performed at lunchtime and following, a patient can return to normal activities. Periodic touch-up procedures are required.

In addition, the treatment can be combined with fillers and Botox injections, as well as other non-invasive laser procedures.

Titan is not a substitute for a tummy tuck or similarly invasive procedure. Those who need or expect very dramatic results are not the ideal candidates for Titan.

Effective Skin Tightening with TITAN Treatments

Cutera's laser device offers TITAN as a light energy option to heat the deep dermis to provide skin tightening. Titan provides a uniform distribution of energy for heating better than other RF (radio-frequency) devices. Since it treats deep dermal tissue, all skin types can be safely treated without risk of pigmentation.

Although our patients often say they can see a visible difference after a single treatment of the jowls, lower face, around the eyes and the neck, we suggest 2 or 3 treatments over a few months to get the best possible outcome.

Titan laser effectiveness for skin tightening

The best candidates for Titan are those who have mild to moderate sagging.  The procedure can be safely done on the face, neck, and any part of the body.  It's a noninvasive no-downtime procedure that's well-tolerated.  Patients can expect about 20-30% improvement after 3-4 treatments done a month apart.  I recommend maintenance treatments about once or twice a year.
