Titan skin tightening costs
Most Titan skin tightening treatments range from $500 to $2000. In most cases, only one treatment is needed to achieve the desired results, making Titan one of the most cost-effective cosmetic procedures available.
Am I a candidate for Titan skin tightening?
Men and women with any skin type or color can be successfully treated with Titan. Ideal candidates are between the ages of 30 and 60 with good skin elasticity who are beginning to see the signs of aging, such as wrinkles and sagging skin.
What is Titan skin tightening?
The infrared light used for Titan Skin Tightening heats the skin in a safe and uniform matter to gently tighten the existing collagen deep within the skin while stimulating the body's own collagen production process. Titan skin tightening can be used on almost any area of the body with loose skin. Popular treatment areas include:
- Abdomen and stomach
- Back of upper arms
- Jawline or jowl
- Under the chin
- Legs and knees
Titan skin tightening steps
During Titan skin tightening procedures, a handheld device is pressed against the skin, where a specific wavelength of infrared light heats up the tissue. This device simultaneously cools the skin's surface to provide a comfortable experience. While the energy is entering your skin, you may feel a brief heating sensation alternated with a short cooling phase. Most patients are comfortable without any anesthetic or medication; if you are worried about potential pain, your doctor may advise taking a mild pain reliever beforehand.
The heat energy itself causes immediate collagen contraction, resulting in some skin tightening results. Over the next few weeks, new collagen forms in the treated area, further improving its appearance and reducing lines, folds, or skin laxity. Full results are usually seen about three to six months following the treatment session. Often, one treatment is all that is necessary to achieve the desired results. In other cases, up to three treatments may be recommended, spaced about four weeks apart. Some patients also opt for a "touch-up" procedure several years after first undergoing Titan skin tightening.
Titan Skin Tightening Recovery and Healing Steps
Unlike other laser-based skin procedures, Titan is considered a non-ablative option, which means that it does not remove the surface skin cells. This fact results in a very short recovery period and no risk of infection. No bandages or sutures are required following Titan cosmetic treatments. Most patients are able to resume their normal activities immediately following Titan skin tightening procedures. It is very important to wear sunscreen and avoid sun exposure after Titan, particularly during the first month following any laser skin treatment.
Titan Skin Tightening Side Effects and Procedure Risks
Some temporary swelling or redness may occur in the treated area of skin. These side effects should subside within a few days following the Titan treatment session. Titan skin tightening is a very safe procedure with a very low risk of side effects. Potential complications, though rare, include a small burn mark on the treated skin.
