Skin Tightening and Firming with Titan™ Light or SkinTyte
Titan™ Light and SkinTyte — Best Laser Procedures for Tightening Loose and Sagging Skin — Non-Surgical Face Lift
As we age, our skin loses its tightness and elasticity, and if we've been overweight and lost the weight, the extra volume will have stretched the skin. Once our skin is stretched, it stays that way and forms folds or jowls. Of course, there are surgical ways to tighten skin, such as face lift, jowl lift, or neck lift, whereby the excess is removed and what remains is stretched to cover the tissue underneath. However, all surgery has risk.
At Nu Vela, we offer the Titan™ non-surgical technology to tighten loose skin. Titan™ is a safe revolutionary skin tightening system that effectively fights gravity, jowl and neck laxity, sagginess under the eyes, saggy brow lines. Titan™ acts by stimulating long-term collagen rebuilding. Treatment with Titan™ gives you an all natural option to actively turn back the clock on the aging skin, restoring the lost facial contours, and achieve a toned and lifted appearance without downtime.
Dr. Dishakjian, the cosmetic surgeon at Nu Vela is personally is involved in every treatment and you can get in touch with him at any time.
TITAN LIGHT THERAPY - NON-SURGICAL FACE LIFT
Titan™ - The Technology and Procedure
Titan™ is light-based procedure, which uses a deep penetrating infrared light source with a unique wavelength filtering system. The Titan™ system uniformly heats the skin at a depth of 3-4mm stimulating new collagen growth and tightening the sagging skin on your face, arms, abdomen, and legs.
Unlike the other more invasive lasers (carbon dioxide, Erbium Yag) that remove surface layers of the skin while heating the deep layers, Titan™ light therapy heats deep skin layers while protecting the top layers by actively cooling them with its special sapphire head. This eliminates downtime, need for anesthesia, scarring risk and the recovery period. Although some brief swelling and redness may be noted with the treatment, Titan™ is truly a "lunchtime" procedure that is non-ablative and non-surgical in nature. There is no need for safety eyewear, numbing cream or nerve blocks and most patients experience only a mild discomfort relieved by over-the-counter analgesics, like Advil. At the conclusion of the treatment, sunscreen is applied. There is no downtime and no specific after care is required.
Who is a Good Candidate for Titan™ Light Therapy?
The Titan Procedure is an ideal solution for patients who desire a more youthful, healthy and natural appearance and are looking for faster, less invasive procedures without surgery, scars, bruising or recovery time. Patients have been successfully treated on many areas of the body where skin is lax. Loose skin on the abdomen, forehead, back of the upper arm, along the jaw line, and under the chin, respond particularly well to the procedure. Clinical results confirm improvement in more than 90 percent of the patients treated.
How Many Treatments are needed?
Although a single treatment with Titan™ has produced very good results for some patients, it is recommended to have up to three treatments, four weeks apart, to get the best results. Improvement begins to be apparent by the conclusion of the treatment and continues to build over the next 12 weeks. Skin tightening has been shown to last up to two years.
How to Achieve Best Results?
For best results, Titan™ can be safely combined with other complimentary treatments that address other aspects of aging, like dermal fillers to correct volume deficit, Botox to soften expression lines, lipotherapy injections to melt away accumulated fat pads (jowls, under chin), and photo facials to treat fine lines and sunspots.
Tightening Loose Skin with SkinTyte
SkinTyte from Sciton technologies is similar to Titan Light (Cutera technologies); that is, it acts on loose skin and makes it firm by delivering pulses of infrared light. The main difference between the two systems is the larger spot size (15 × 45 mm) of Skintyte, which results in shortened skin tightening treatment sessions. Accordingly, SkinTyte is more suitable than Titan Light for the treatment of larger areas, such as the abdomen. Despite the larger spot size, however, skin firming treatments with SkinTyte are quite comfortable. This is made possible thanks to the efficient cooling system of SkinTyte which cools the skin's surface below 30ºC. Overall, patients who receive treatment with SkiTyte are as happy as those receiving Titan Light therapy for attaining remarkable skin firmness in the treated area.
