About Skin Tightening
Our new Cutera Titan treatment gives you an all-natural, safe option in skin tightening that uses light energy to heat the dermis deep beneath your skin’s surface. Titan is an ideal solution, without surgery, recovery time or injections. During the procedure, the skin’s top surface (epidermis) is protected through continuous cooling with the Titan hand piece. The Titan is different from other procedures in that Titan’s light-based platform provides a more uniform distribution of energy for heating the deep dermis than other energy sources, such as radio-frequency.
How it Works & Treatment Sensation
The Titan uses light energy to safely heat the dermis beneath the skin’s surface to promote collagen stimulation. With each Titan pulse you will feel a brief heating sensation.

|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. Dr. Desai will advise you as to the number and frequency of treatments recommended for optimal results.|
|Does the treatment require downtime for healing?||Following the treatment, you can return to your normal activities right away, but immediately following the treatment, you may notice some redness and mild swelling in the treated area. Both should dissipate within a few hours.|
