The Titan™ laser is used to tighten skin and build collagen. It emits an infra-red light that heats the dermis well below the skin’s surface. The skin’s surface is protected by a cooling mechanism within the Titan hand piece. The deep dermal heating stimulates new collagen formation and tightens the skin. A topical anesthetic applied prior to treatment allows the procedure to be performed with minimal discomfort. Although a single treatment can produce good results, it is common for patients to have 2-3 treatments at monthly intervals. The results continue to improve for 6 months because of the time it takes to build new collagen. There is no downtime. Sunscreens are always recommended.
