Gravity and time seem to be two of the biggest culprits when it comes to the disappearance of youthful skin. As you age, the production of both collagen and elastin decrease naturally, making your skin loose elasticity and firmness. When gravity joins in, your skin may start to hang and sag, making it even more noticeable.
This is one of the reasons cosmetic surgery is more popular than ever. Your genetics and lifestyle certainly play a role when it comes to your skin, but you can’t stop time and you can’t stop gravity. The Titan Skin Tightening Laser is a tool that is used to firm that sagging skin and make it look more youthful.
Titan 3D Skin Tightening
The Cutera Titan is an all natural non-invasive light-based medical device for treating the face, neck, jowls, arms, legs, abdomen or other body part with loose skin. It uses a safe infrared light to stimulate collagen growth deep beneath the skin’s surface resulting in tightening with the improvement of lax skin, folds and lines. Titan’s light-based platform provides a more uniform distribution of energy for heating the deep dermis than other energy sources, such as RF (radio-frequency). Men and women, of all ages and skin types who have lax skin on their face, along the jaw line, under the chin, on the upper arms or abdomen may be treated.
Laser Genesis is a laser treatment with no downtime for our patients that targets the microvasculature and stimulates collagen production. It improves fine wrinkles and skin texture.
To help with healing, application of CytoDerma™ silicone gel may be applied to keep the skin moisturized after your laser skin tightening treatment. You can read more about silicone scar gel here.

A Non-Invasive Approach
The Titan Skin Tightening Laser is a non-invasive treatment, which means no general anesthesia, no incisions and no downtime. This aspect of the treatment appeals to people with busy lives, who really don’t have the liberty to miss work or be away from their families.
The Titan uses infrared light, sent out in short bursts or pulses. Each pulse lasts for around 5 to 7 seconds, heating up the inner layers of your skin and giving the collagen an opportunity to rebuild itself. As the dermis is heated, there is also continuous cooling taking place that makes the process more comfortable for the patient.
The Titan Skin Tightening Laser promotes long-term collagen growth, creating progressively younger looking skin in the treatment area.
Titan Target Areas
The Titan is ideal for most areas that people have issues as they get older. This includes problem spots like:
- Neck (Jowls)
- Knees and Thighs
- Décolleté (upper chest area)
When you book an appointment for an initial consultation, be sure to mention all of the areas you feel need attention. This way, you and your doctor can create a plan to address each one and restore your skin.
Both men and women can benefit from using the Titan Skin Tightening Laser. It’s generally used for people in their 40s and 50s, as this is the typical age range where skin aging becomes an issue. If you have a skin condition that ages your skin and you aren’t within this range, let your doctor know anyway because the Titan may be able to help.
When the Titan is used to tighten up loose skin, the results usually last for up to six weeks or, in some cases, even longer. It may take a few treatments to get the ball rolling, but once the new collagen starts forming, you’ll see an extensive difference that you’ll love!
Laser Skin Tightening for Enlarged Pores
Look at your skin. You don’t have acne, it feels pretty smooth, and the tone is pretty even. Yet, it still looks bad. Take a closer look – it could be enlarged pores.
Your pores are the tiny holes in your skin that allow natural oils and sweat to reach the uppermost layer, protecting the surface and regulating body temperature. It’s also where your hair is located. When we’re young, our pores are incredibly tiny in circumference, but as we age, they tend to get larger and more noticeable. Enlarged pores can make an otherwise perfect complexion unattractive.
Why Do They Happen
The size of your pores is determined foremost by genetics. However, other factors have a huge impact on their size. Excess oil, dirt and debris can easily clog all your pores, making them larger in appearance. Aging will also affect them as elasticity and suppleness decreases in relation to the disintegration of collagen and elastin.
Laser Skin Tightening to the Rescue!
You’ve probably seen the many moisturizing creams that claim the ability to tighten your pores, and toners that do the same. Beware! This is false advertising because they can’t technically remodel your skin. Moisturizers only add moisture and toners only cleanse out the pores. So what can you do to resolve this problem?
Laser Skin Tightening is a non-surgical cosmetic treatment that boosts collagen and elastin production. It is scientifically proven to get right to the cellular level of the skin, changing the way it behaves to improve tone and texture. Over a series of sessions, you’ll see a gradual improvement in the size of your pores. Enlarged pores, be gone!
3 Tips to Smaller Pores
Complement your skin tightening treatments by following these 3 tips:
- Exfoliate regularly, but not on a daily basis (once or twice a week at most, depending on your skin type). This will remove the gunk that’s clogging your pores and making them look bigger.
- Use moisturizers suitable for your skin and weather. Lighter moisturizers are best for humid weather, while heavier ones should be used in the winter when it’s dry.
- Apply sunblock every time you go out. Research has found UV exposure is the primary cause contributing to the disintegration of elastin and collagen.
