HOW DOES THE CUTERA TITAN WORKS?
Titan utilizes a safe infrared light to heat the dermis well below the skin’s surface. During the procedure, the skin’s top surface (epidermis) is protected through continuous cooling with the Titan handpiece.

The Titan difference
Titan’s light-based platform provides a more uniform distribution of energy for heating the deep dermis than other energy sources, such as RF (radiofrequency). What areas respond best to thee Titan procedure? Patients have been successfully treated on many areas of the body. The most common areas treated are the jawline, under the chin, and the abdomen.

Who can be treated?
Since the Titan procedure heats tissue under the skin’s surface, patients of any skin type or age can be treated. Your physician can advise you if the Titan is right for you.

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. Your physician will advise you as to the number and frequency of treatments recommended for optimal results.

What happens after the treatment?
Immediately following the treatment, you may notice some redness and mild swelling in the treated area. Both should dissipate within a few hours. Consult with your physician for complete information on the benefits and risks of treatment.

What do treatments feel like?
With each Titan pulse you will feel a brief heating sensation. Some patients are more comfortable taking a mild pain reliever beforehand. Many patients are comfortable without any medication. Your physician will advise you.
