FAQs – Titan™ Tissue Tightening

Titan Tissue TighteningTM


Q.  How does the Titan™ Work?
A.  Titan™ utilizes a safe, infrared light to heat the dermis well below the skin’s surface. This heating can cause immediate collagen contraction. During the procedure, the skin’s surface (epidermis) is protected through continuous cooling with the Titan™ handpiece. After the procedure, new collagen growth results in further tightening and the development of a more youthful complexion with less lines, folds or looseness of the skin.

Q.  The Titan™ Difference
A.  Titan™ employs light energy because it provides a more uniform distribution of energy for heating the deep dermis than other energy sources such as RF (radio frequency). The biggest difference between the Titan™ and its RF predecessor, Thermage, is the Titan is a much more comfortable procedure.

Q.  What happens after the treatment? Any side effects?
A.  The treatment takes approximately one hour, depending on the size of the area being treated. A topical numbing cream is applied to most patients beforehand to insure a comfortable treatment. Immediately following the treatment, you may notice some redness and mild swelling in the treated areas. Both should dissipate within a few hours.

Q.  When will I see results?
A.  Some patients see results immediately. For most patients, the results are gradual over a three to six month period as new collagen is formed and the skin tightens.
