Skin is constantly being attacked! By environmental factors such as sun-damage, dehydration & pollutants. By social and personal habits such as smoking, drinking, swimming in chlorinated pools and going to the beach. By genetic traits and ill-health and most importantly by the natural effects of aging. One of the most significant detrimental effects on your skins appearance comes from the reduced production of Collagen that naturally occurs after the age of 35! Collagen gives our skin its ‘spring’ allowing it to bounce back after certain movements and supporting the skin as we grow older. Unfortunately, this lack of production of Collagen and the increased breakdown of existing Collagen ultimately leads to some of the most noticeable signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles and jowls. We feel like the skin is ‘drooping’ and that there is no support to the face and other parts of the body such as the upper arms. People often at this stage start to examine how their face would look if they ‘pin’ the skin up in front of their ears, as if they have had a small face-lift. However, surgery is not the only way to address this problem!
Here are some of the concerns a Titan Non Surgical Face & Neck Lift treatment can treat:
Cutera’s medical grade Infra-red technology can be safely used to tighten the skin, improving skin tone and firmness. The areas we most often treat include the cheeks, jaw line, under the chin, neck, eyes, abdomen and upper arms. Titan uses a safe, infrared light to heat the dermis well below the skin’s surface. This heating can cause immediate collagen contraction resulting in tighter skin. During the procedure the skin’s surface (epidermis) is protected through continuous cooling with the Titan handpiece. After the procedure new collagen growth results in further tightening with the improvement of lax skin, folds and lines. When used on the face, TITAN stimulates the collagen in the skin which results in a “Non- Surgical face lift” – Amazing!
As Titan heats tissue under the skin’s surface, patients of any skin type can be treated. Men and women of all ages and skin types are potential candidates. The handpiece is placed onto the skin and is rotated in circular movements while a pulse of deeply penetrating heat is passed through the outer skin to get to the deep tissues. These pulses are placed in specific sections of the skin to create bands of collagen that will lift and tighten loose sagging skin in those areas.
The number of treatments needed varies according to the precise condition and responsiveness of your skin but it typically ranges from one to three treatments over a few months. This will be discussed in detail during a consultation and a treatment program will be recommended that’s suitable for you and your desired result. Results classically last for 1-2 years but this simple, pain free, lunch-time procedure is so easy and relatively inexpensive that many clients will have a maintenance treatment annually.
As Titan uses infra-red light energy it provides a more uniform distribution of energy for heating the deep dermis than other energy sources such as radiofrequency (RF). Patients are able to tolerate treatments without the use of any anaesthetic or other numbing agents. There may be a few quick moments or areas of particular discomfort but these are very infrequent and often clients feel so relaxed during the treatment that they almost fall asleep. Before the treatment is started you will be offered mild pain relief medication and a medication to relax you during the treatment.
The procedure takes approximately 1 ¼ hrs per area treated. Immediately following the treatment you may notice some redness and mild swelling in the treated area. Both should dissipate within a few hours.
Patients have been successfully treated on many areas of the body where skin is loose. Loose skin along the lower face, jaw line, under the chin, the neck, abdomen and upper arms have responded particularly well to Titan. Other areas treatable include under and around eyes and cheeks.
You will notice an immediate lift where skin will appear tighter however this is usually a temporary effect from trauma created at the time of the treatment. New collagen will start to form in 6-8 weeks and at 12 weeks after the treatment you will notice increased tightening and lifting of the skin on the lower face, jawline and neck. Each individual treatment will give you a result and a further treatment should not be done for 3 months. Our patients are still enjoying the benefits of Titan after one to two years but as the skin will continue to age they may opt for a yearly maintenance treatment.
It is important to protect your skin from the damaging aging effects of UV rays so a 50+ sun block will be applied immediately after the procedure and you will be required to continue this for a couple of weeks but please remember that sunlight is probably one of the contributing factors to your particular issue in the first place so why not get in to a habit of blocking it out now! It is also very beneficial to use other methods of enhancing the Collagen stimulation you get from your Titan treatment and one of the commonest advised is a Home Roller. This can be used at the end of your Titan treatment by your Cosmetic Practitioner and you can then take it home and continue to use it 2-3 times per week to maintain the benefits from your treatment. It will increase the absorption of active skin care treatments and will prolong and enhance the results achieved from your Titan treatment. If you are investing in any cosmetic treatment you really should maintain the results with cosmetic grade skin care and home remedies.
Titan treatments are a safe and effective way of generating a tightening and lifting effect to problem areas but it is also important to remember that combination treatments with Titan can give an even more dramatic effect! At Rejuven8 Cosmetix our clinical specialists have researched all the available techniques used for skin rejuvenation and can advise you on some of the most effective ways of treating any issue you may have.
It is essential that a consultation be carried out PRIOR to your Titan treatment to fully assess the area of concern and discuss the suitability and potential outcome in treating that area with Titan technology. Treatments can be discussed in detail during a free consultation with our experienced cosmetic practitioners, and a treatment program that’s tailored specifically to you can be recommended.
