The Cutera TITAN™ is one of the only FDA approved non-invasive skin tightening and face-lifting devices, meant to improve skin tone around the jawline, chin, and neck. It is the first tailored infrared light source utilizing special wavelength filters to diminish the signs of aging, laxity, drooping, sagging and wrinkled skin. This device can be used for face contouring, body sculpturing, and reducing cellulite on legs and abdomen. It is reported to be effective on hard-to-improve “hanging'” skin on older necks and upper arm areas.
About the Infrared Wavelength (1100-1800nm)
The broadband spectrum of 1100 to 1800nm was selected and tailored for ideal water absorption and allows uniform heating of the dermis to produce volumetric heating. Volumetric heating, or heating at 1-2mm deep, is necessary to produce the desired clinical result and requires a sustained temperature increase in the dermis.
How does the Cutera Titan work?
Infrared light energy safely heats the deep layers below the surface of the skin without damaging the outer skin by protecting it using intense cooling. The heat causes collagen contraction and stimulates new collagen production. When the treatment head is applied, the client will feel cooling followed by a short heating cycle (approximately 6 seconds) and then a second cooling phase. During the procedure, the skin’s surface is protected through continuous cooling from the TITAN™ handpiece.
Advantages of Titan Laser Treatments
- Deep dermal heating with new collagen formation over time
- Precise placement of heat in the dermis with continuous epidermal cooling
- Minimal discomfort during treatment
- No single-use disposables which results in low cost of ownership
- Can be used on all skin types including tanned skin
