The Uplifting Laser

The Titan® Laser employs a unique optical light source to heat the dermis, the deep layer of the skin, while protecting the epidermis, the superficial layer of the skin. There is subsequent contraction in the dermis resulting in a “lift” effect. Over time new collagen develops in the dermis which further enhances tightening of the skin. The energy delivered to the dermis creates a tissue response that far surpasses all prior technology.

What is the Titan® Procedure?

The Titan® procedure is the first light-based solution for deep skin tightening.  The procedure is non-surgical and uses safe, infrared light instead of radio frequency to cause the collagen in the skin’s dermis to contract and tighten.  It can be used in all areas of the body where tighter skin is desired.  While the infrared energy is heating the dermis, the Titan’s continuous-contact, cooling hand piece is keeping the skin’s outer layer cool and comfortable.  Since the Titan® uses infrared light to heat the tissues below the skin’s surface, all patients concerned with loose or sagging skin, regardless of skin type or color may benefit from this procedure.

How many treatments will I need?

Depending on your skin’s laxity, the area to be treated and the results you desire, multiple treatments may be required.  The Titan® procedure usually requires 1 to 3 sessions at intervals of 6 to 8 weeks apart.  During your consultation with Dr. Ablon, she will advise you as to the number and frequency of treatments that may be required to achieve your desired results.  Keep in mind that the results from Titan® tissue tightening are gradual and may take from three to six months to maximize the effects of the treatment.

What does the procedure feel like?

Most patients prefer a topical anesthetic which is applied to the area being treated for about 15 minutes prior to the procedure.  During the Titan® procedure you may feel a warming sensation as the Titan’s infrared energy is delivered to the deeper layers of the skin.  The energy causes the collagen support tissues to contract and tighten.  The cool gel applied to the skin provides cooling to your skin’s surface, protecting it and keeping you comfortable during the treatment.

How long does the Titan® Procedure take?

Tissue tightening with the Titan® is done in our office and the procedure takes from 15 minutes to 2 hours depending on the area being treated.

What will my skin feel like after the procedure?

After your treatment, you may notice some mild swelling and/or redness in the treatment area.  This usually disappears in a few hours. You may resume your normal activities immediately.

Combination procedures (fillers, botulinum toxin and lasers) will afford you the greatest overall results.
