Tightening with The New Cutera® Titan
What areas respond best to the Titan procedure?
Patients have been successfully treated on many areas of the
body where skin is lax. Loose skin along the jaw line, under
the chin, the abdomen and upper arm have responded particularly
well to the procedure.
Who can be treated?
Since the Titan procedure is heating tissue under the skins
surface, patients of any skin type can be treated. Men and
women of all ages and skin types are potential candidates.
Your medical professional can advise you if the Titan is right for you.
How many treatments will I need?
A single treatment has produced very good results for some
patients. Your medical professional will advise you as to the number
and frequency of treatments recommended for optimal results.
What happens after the treatment?
Any side effects?
Immediately following the treatment, you may notice some redness
and mild swelling in the treated area. Both should dissipate
within a few hours. Consult with your medical professional
for complete information on the benefits and risks of treatment.
When will I see results?
Some patients see results immediately. However, for most patients,
the results are gradual over a three to six month period as
new collagen is formed and the skin tightens.
What do treatments feel like?
With each Titan pulse, you will feel a brief heating sensation.
Some patients are more comfortable taking a mild pain reliever
beforehand. Many patients are comfortable without anything.
Your medical professional will advise you.
Has the Titan been tested and approved?
The Titan has been carefully studied in clinics around the
world. It is cleared for the treatment of wrinkles in Europe
and for general dermatologic use in Canada. In the US, it
is cleared for topical heating to increase local tissue temperatures
and circulation. An additional 510(k) clearance is pending
in the US for the treatment of wrinkles.
