Titan Skin Tightening Orange County
Get Skin tightening with the Cutera Titan Laser and Fall in love with your skin!
As we age, we begin to show noticeable signs of aging such as lose skin tone, loose skin, and wrinkles. These signs of aging are commonly related to the decrease in collagen and elastin production from fibroblast cells. Collagen and elastin are protein fibers that help support our skin by providing our skin with firmness and tightness.
What is the Cutera Titan?
The Cutera Titan is an FDA approved non-invasive skin tightening device. This device utilizes infrared light energy to safely heat the dermis (layer of skin under the surface) stimulating collagen and elastin production. This laser energy is delivered uniformly resulting in firmer, tighter skin.
During treatment the top layer of your skin is protected by constant cooling and with each laser pulse you may feel a heating sensation but the treatment is comfortable and not painful. There is no downtime associated with the treatment. The treatment results may last for 1-2 years, depending on the aftercare. Multiple treatments are generally required for optimal results.
A single Titan session lasts about an hour, but the time is dependent on the area being treated. You may see immediate results after the first treatment but new collagen growth will be stimulated and final results may take about 3-4 months.
