TITAN™ Skin Tightening

The new Cutera TITAN™ gives you an all-natural option to enhance skin tone. TITAN™ uses light energy to heat the dermis deep beneath your skin’s surface without surgery, recovery time, or injections. The TITAN™ is an ideal solution for the face, lower face, jowels, and neck.


What does it do?

TITAN™ is a light-based treatment we use to improve skin tone and fitness. The areas we most often treat include the lower face, jawline, under the chin and the abdomen.

How does it work?

We use a sophisticated infrared light to gently heat the supportive tissue within the skin.

How is your treatment different from Thermage?

Both heat the collagen in the skin but TITAN™ is reported to be less painful and less sensitive to variations in tissue because it uses a completely different mechanism for heating.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments varies according to the precise condition and responsiveness of your skin, but it typically ranges from one to three treatments over a few months. At your consultation, we can discuss this in detail and recommend a treatment program that?s right for you.

How long does each treatment take?

The time will vary according to whether you are treating a full face, a neck or both, but a safe estimate is 60 minutes.

What does it feel like?

Patients are able to tolerate treatments without the use of any anesthesia, numbing creams, or medication. There may be a few quick moments or areas of particular discomfort. Some patients choose to take acetominophen prior to treatment, but most patients do fine without any pain medication.

What can I expect afterwards?

There may be some flushing from the heat and possibly some very slight swelling, but you can return to normal activities right away. Results can be subtle at first but over the course of 6 months, the results continue to appear.

How long do the results last?

Our patients are still enjoying the benefits of Titan after one to two years, but because the skin will continue to age, they may opt for a yearly maintenance treatment.

Is it safe?

Yes. Tens of thousands of TITAN™ treatments have been done to date. As with all medical procedures there is a slight degree of risk, and we will discuss this with you thoroughly when you come in for your consultation.

How much does it cost?

If you?d like to make an appointment for a consultation, we can give you an idea as to the number of treatments and the specific cost. We do offer various payment plans.

Can anyone have it done?

Typically adults of all skin types can be candidates. It is important to understand that TITAN™ isn't a replacement for a face lift.


What do treatments feel like?

With each Titan pulse you will feel a brief heating sensation. Some patients are more comfortable taking a mild pain reliever beforehand. Many patients are comfortable without any medication. Your physician will advise you.

How many treatments will I need?

Although a single treatment has produced very good results for many patients, it is quite common for patients to have two or three treatments over a few months. Your physician will advise you as to the number and frequency of treatments recommended for optimal results.

What happens after the treatment?

Immediately following the treatment, you may notice some redness and mild swelling in the treated area. Both should dissipate within a few hours. Consult with your physician for complete information on the benefits and risks of treatment.
