Patients ask, “Are there side effects of Titan skin tightening treatments for face and body in Bend?”
Posted By Ms. Rebecca Covey
Time, convenience, and cost are major deciding factors when patients elect cosmetic procedures. With hectic schedules and busy lives, many patients do not want the downtime and recovery periods associated with anti-aging surgical procedures. In Bend, OR, patients have turned to EsthetixMD Spa & Laser Center for non-surgical Titan skin tightening treatments for the face and body. Skin tightening treatments address loose, sagging skin to help patients look as young as they feel.
The Titan system offers a unique, effective method of tightening the skin on areas of the face and body. This non-surgical, non-ablative treatment utilizes infrared light rather than lasers or injections to quickly and safely produce firmer, more youthful looking skin.
Titan skin tightening treatments
At EsthetixMD Spa & Laser Center, we offer cosmetic skin rejuvenation treatments including Titan skin tightening procedures. With age, the skin becomes more lax. Gravity takes effect and the skin starts to sag. Titan skin tightening treatment uses light energy to target the dermis tightening the skin and stimulating collagen growth. It uses a specially filtered infrared light source for deep dermal heating that is sustained, safe, and uniform. It is frequently used to treat skin on the face, under the chin, the neck, and the abdomen. This procedure can be performed on all skin types, including tanned skin.
Titan skin tightening is a non-surgical procedure so there is no need to worry about anesthesia, scars, or a lengthy recovery period. This treatment does not involve toxins, needles, or scalpels to achieve firmer, tightened skin. The skin’s surface remains intact. The energy is delivered at the right temperature and proper depth. This stimulates the patient’s own collagen production.
What to expect and side effects
During a Titan skin tightening treatment for the face or body, the infrared light safely heats the dermis while the epidermis is protected by constant cooling contact from the handpiece. Over the course of the procedure, the infrared energy stimulates new collagen in the dermis and tightens existing collagen. This increases collagen levels which is essential to improve the elasticity and volume of the skin. With time, the treatments reveal natural, noticeable results.
As the infrared energy heats the skin, patients may notice a warming sensation and milk mild discomfort with each pulse of energy. However, outright pain should not be felt. Settings can be customized for each patient to control the energy levels. A topical numbing agent may also be available.
Minimal side effects are found with Titan skin tightening treatments. The most common are minor swelling or redness of the treatment area immediately following the treatment. Side effects usually dissipate within a few hours of the treatment. Patients may apply sunscreen and makeup after the treatment. Since there is no required downtime, patients may return to their usual activities.
Over time, the collagen production dramatically improves the skin giving a firmer, more youthful appearance. Although noticeable effects may be found immediately after a single treatment, optimal results occur gradually over a period of several months. The newly produced collagen begins to lift and tighten the skin in the treated areas. Repeated skin tightening treatments are needed to maintain the desired look. The number of Titan treatments needed and how long the results last depend on factors such as a patient’s age, health, and the extent and location of the area to be treated.
Titan is an effective treatment for loose skin in problem areas including:
The jaw line
Under the chin
The abdominal area
Back of the arms
Patients with more advanced signs of aging may need more than one treatment to achieve the desired results. Titan skin tightening is not a surgical facelift. It will not reproduce the same effects but does not have the required downtime either. However, this treatment is a non-invasive alternative for patients who do not need a full surgery. Skin tightening treatments can be combined with other procedures such as cosmetic injectables for a more dramatic effect.
