As we age, one of the most common skin complaints is sagging, loose skin. Even experiencing substantial weight loss or going through pregnancy can cause skin to lose its elasticity.
Some people opt for surgical procedures such as facelifts to correct the loose skin. However, there is a cutting edge, non-invasive procedure that helps you achieve more youthful, tighter and healthier looking skin with minimum discomfort – Titan.
How Does Titan Work?
Suitable for both men and women of all ages and skin types, this revolutionary system utilises a safe, infrared light to heat the dermis below the skin’s surface, which can cause immediate collagen contraction — resulting in tighter skin.
Titan is highly effective at treating loose skin along the jaw line, chin, abdomen and upper arm. It has been carefully studied in clinics across the world, and is medically cleared for the treatment of wrinkles in Europe and general dermatologic use in Canada. Whilst in the USA, it is cleared for topical heating to increase local tissue temperatures and circulation.
How Often Should You Have Treatment?
In some cases, patients have observed a noticeable difference after a single session. However for most patients, results are gradual – typically over a 3 to 6 month period as new collagen is formed and the skin tightens.
IYour specialist will recommend the number of sessions required based on your individual circumstances.
What Happens Before and After Treatment?
Anesthetic cream is not required beforehand, although some patients are more comfortable taking mild pain relief as a slight warming sensation is felt during laser skin tightening treatment.
Immediately afterwards you may notice some redness and mild swelling in the treated area, although both should disappear within a matter of hours.
