Combat Sagging Skin with the Help of the Titan LaserPublished on November 30, 2018 by Westchester Center For Dermatology
When your skin loses elasticity, it becomes loose, causing it to droop. This can add years to your appearance, especially if the loose skin is on your forehead, neck, jawline, or abdomen. Loose sagging skin is a common problem faced by many people, causing them to try a number of different methods and procedures in attempts to get rid of it.
Many people believe that to get rid of such issues, going under the knife is the only effective solution. However, getting surgery is a huge commitment that most are not ready for. In such cases, there is a great procedure that can combat loose sagging skin without surgery: Titan Laser treatment.
What Is Titan Laser Treatment?
The Titan Laser is a handheld device with continuous-cooling technology that protects the outer surface of the skin. The treatment uses infrared light to heat the skin deep below the surface. This heat boosts the production of collagen and encourages the existing collagen to tighten.
Collagen is a protein naturally produced by the body and plays a major role in determining how firm our skin is. Over time, its production naturally decreases, leading to wrinkles and loose skin.
What makes Titan Laser so great is that there is no artificial collagen involved; it only stimulates the production of your natural collagen. This allows for very natural-looking high-quality results.
What Is the Treatment Like?
The Titan Laser treatment session is carried out by a qualified medical professional at our practice. The procedure is fairly simple and does not require the patient to be given any anesthesia. All that is required is the Titan Laser hand-held device.
It is important to make sure that the skin to be treated is first cleaned thoroughly. Having makeup on during the treatment can lead to skin irritation.
The device delivers a heating and cooling sensation simultaneously, making sure that you do not feel too much of either during the session. The duration of the treatment depends on the location and size of the areas to be treated.
It is normal to experience mild swelling and redness right after the procedure; these will disappear in just a few hours. There is no downtime required, so you can carry on with your daily activities as usual. You may need two to three sessions for best results.
Who Is an Ideal Candidate for a Titan Laser Treatment?
If you identify with the following, then you may be a suitable candidate for Titan Laser treatment:
• You have loose sagging skin that makes you look much older than you actually are.
• You are not ready to opt for surgery as a treatment and want something that is non-invasive but produces excellent results.
• You want a procedure that requires only minimal downtime and does not result in scarring of any kind.
• You are above 18 years old.
• You have realistic expectations from the procedure.
