Titan Skin Tightening Treatments

The Cutera Titan is an infrared light treatment designed to heat the deep dermis of the skin, stimulating new collagen formation. The treatment effectively improves skin tone and elasticity and may be used on many areas of the body including the face, jawline, under the chin, the neck, arms, abdomen, and legs. Compared to other laser treatments, the Titan is a gentler procedure providing more uniform and consistent heating and more even distribution.

Good candidates for the Titan treatment include men and women of any age who are looking to improve the appearance of skin laxity but are not ready for surgery. While Titan can provide a rested and refreshed look, the results are not as dramatic as with surgery. Titan can be combined with other surgical and non-surgical procedures as a finishing touch.
