As your skin ages, it produces less collagen and loses its elasticity. This can lead to unattractive jowls under the jawline and chin. Women who have been pregnant, or anyone who has lost a significant amount of weight, may also notice wrinkly skin on the abdomen. Until recently, the only solution for these problems was plastic surgery.
Not ready to go under the knife? Cutera Titan is a non-invasive laser procedure that tightens and firms loose, sagging skin. This innovative treatment allows you to enjoy the benefits of skin-tightening surgery, but without the risks of anesthesia, infection, or scarring.
Cutera Titan can be used anywhere on the body to firm up loose skin. The most commonly treated areas are the jawline, chin, and abdomen.
How does it work?
Cutera Titan uses an infrared light to heat the dermis below the skin’s surface. This causes existing collagen to contract and, over time, new collagen to be produced. Your skin’s elasticity improves, leading to a more youthful appearance.
Does it hurt?
During the procedure, the top surface of your skin is protected by continuous cooling. With each pulse from the laser you will feel a heating sensation, but overall treatment with Cutera Titan is quite comfortable. Most patients don’t need any sort of pain medication, and can return to their regular activities right away.
Immediately after the procedure, you may notice some mild redness or swelling in the treated area. These symptoms generally go away within a few hours.
