What is the Cutera Titan Laser Treatment?
The Cutera Titan is an FDA-approved, non-invasive skin tightening and lifting treatment that employs light energy to heat the dermis deep beneath your skin’s surface. Many areas of the body with lax skin can be treated, however, the most common treatment areas include the lower face, jawline, under the chin, and the abdomen.
The Cutera Titan treatment offers many benefits, including:
- Tightens and lifts the skin by stimulating natural collagen production
- Does not involve sedation or topical anesthetic
- Features minimal discomfort during treatment
- Treatment takes one hour or less to complete
- Efficiently treats all skin types
- Little to no downtime required
What to Expect from Treatment
There is no anesthesia needed for Cutera Titan treatment, as the skin’s surface (epidermis) is protected from continuous cooling with the Titan handpiece.
During treatment, the Titan device utilizes safe, infrared light energy to produce the desired effect. The heat stimulates tissue contraction and new collagen production which helps to tighten and lift the skin in the treated areas. Titan’s light-based platform provides a more uniform distribution of energy for heating the deep dermis than other energy sources, producing a superior result.
Results and Recovery
Following treatment, you may experience mild redness and swelling for a few hours. There is no downtime, so you can feel free to return to your regular activities as soon as you wish.
Although a single treatment is an option for some patients with minimal laxity, it is quite common for patients to have two or three treatments over a few months. Typically, a package of treatments is recommended for optimal results.
