Candidates for Titan

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Patients with mild to moderate skin laxity and wrinkles are good candidates for Titan. Patients who desire a more natural appearance and are looking for faster, less invasive procedures with little, if any, downtime. Patients have been successfully treated on many areas of the body where skin is lax. Loose skin on the abdomen, back of the upper arm, along the jaw line, and under the chin have responded particularly well to the procedure.

Titan best for patients with good skin tone, early skin laxity

Titan works best in patients with good skin tone and early skin laxity. That said, it will work for many patients not completely fitting this description, depending on expectations. A good evaluation at the time of consultation is always needed to determine patient needs vs desires and offer an honest discussion re what can be accomplished.

Skin Tightening with TITAN

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Skin Tightening is known to be effective with several types of devices, TITAN by Cutera, being the first in the industry with infrared delivery. There are very few risks associated with laser skin tightening. The TITAN  technology gently heats deeper layers of collagen while cooling the skin’s outer layers  The best candidates for non-surgical skin tightening are people with mild to moderate skin laxity with a healthy deep dermis for improving elasticity.   Often, combining this treatment with the laser GENESIS makes for optimal long-term  results!

Best candidates for Titan skin tightening

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

The best candidate for Titan treatment is someone with mild to moderate sagging.  If you can pull the skin from your neck and reach your ears, then you're definitely not a good candidate for this procedure--you would need a facelift.  You can get about 20-30% tightening after 3-4 treatments done a month apart.
