How does the Titan Work?
Titan utilizes a safe, infrared light to heat the dermis well below the skin’s surface. This heating can cause immediate collagen contraction. During the procedure, the skin’s surface (epidermis) is protected through continuous cooling with the Titan hand piece. After the procedure, new collagen growth results in further tightening and the development of a more youthful complexion with less lines, folds or looseness of the skin.
Does the Titan procedure hurt?
After an initial evaluation of the health of the skin and the underlying collagen, a thin layer of water gel is gently spread on the area to be treated to facilitate the movement of the treatment head. The area is treated in dime-sized segments. When the treatment head is applied, the patient feels an initial cooling and a short heating cycle followed by a cooling phase. Each cycle lasts approximately six seconds and multiple passes are typically used. Some patients are more comfortable taking a mild pain reliever before hand. Many patients are comfortable without anything.
