The Titan procedure is a non-surgical facelift procedure that is an effective treatment for loose skin around the abdomen area, under the chin, facial wrinkles, and sagging cheeks. Titan is completely natural, using light energy to stimulate collagen growth beneath your skin’s surface. Titan is an ideal solution to restoring your youthful appearance without the need for surgery, injections, or recovery time. Read on to learn more about the Titan procedure.
How Does it Work?
Titan uses an infrared light to heat the dermis well below the surface of your skin. The heat causes immediate collagen contraction. Because the heat from this procedure will also affect the epidermal skin layers, a handheld cooling device is applied to the surface of your skin the entire time. Titan uses light energy because it tends to produce a more uniform distribution of energy than other methods. After the procedure is complete, the new collagen growth rate will result in further tightening of the skin, which in turn will provide you with a more youthful complexion, as well as reducing your wrinkles, loose skin, and folds.
Who can Be Treated?
The Titan targets and heats skin which is under the surface. Because of this, the procedure can be used for any age and any skin type regardless of your gender. Both men and women of all ages have been treated successfully and without incident. However, just because Titan is safe for anyone to use does not mean that your specific bodily condition is a good fit for the procedure. In order to know what procedure best fits your needs, make sure to ask the advice of your doctor.
How many Treatments are Required and How does it Feel?
For many patients, a single treatment already produces an exceptional result. The number varies depending on the patient and how the patient’s body reacts to the treatment. As you proceed with the treatment, your doctor will advise you if you require a second treatment. If you do not, they will give you a timeframe for when you should retake the treatment as well. Titan is not a permanent solution as your body will still age after the procedure. Because of this, you will need to be treated again after a certain amount of time. With each heat pulse during the procedure, you will feel a brief heating sensation. If you dislike the feeling you may request a numbing cream or pain reliever, though most find this unnecessary. You also may find that your skin turns red or swells up after the procedure. This is perfectly normal and will subside after a couple of hours.
When Will I See Results?
Some of our patients see results immediately after the procedure. However, most of the time you will see gradual results over a period of three to six months as the collagen forms and tightens your skin. Eventually, enough collagen will have been produced that your skin will be as tight as it was up to ten years ago.
