Loose skin plagues many patients around the world. It is one of the most common symptoms of aging, and it can be one of the more challenging dermatological conditions to treat. The difficulty in treating loose skin revolves around how it develops.
As the collagen structures begin to degenerate, they become less able to hold the skin together. This contributes towards the way loose skin sags and forms wrinkles.
The good news is that cutting-edge dermatological treatments are making it so that you can turn the clock back on aging. Cutera® Titan™ represents one of the most advanced forms of those treatments, as it can rejuvenate skin while tightening it.
How Does Cutera® Titan™ Work?
Cutera® Titan™ works by utilizing infrared light, which harmlessly passes through the upper layers of the skin. This light meets the collagen layers deep within the skin and then transforms into heat.
When enough heat forms within the collagen layers, it begins a controlled breakdown of these cells. The body’s lymphatic system slowly removes the affected cells and begins the process of creating new collagen.
This results in skin that looks younger, feels tighter and lacks many of the symptoms that aged skin displays. The process, which is gradual rather than immediate, tends to mesh better with the skin at a cellular level.
How is Skin Tightening with Cutera® Titan™ Different?
While most methods of non-invasive skin tightening utilize heat to initiate the process of neocollagenesis, the way that they distribute heat is what makes them different.
Methods utilizing energy transfer via radio waves, for example, may produce uneven results due to the way that these waves distribute at a cellular level. They can allow certain areas of loose skin to remain unaffected while tightening nearby areas of skin.
This can result in skin smoothing that has a greater disparity. Your best areas may look smoother, but your worst areas may seem unaffected.
The treatment utilizes infrared light. The directional nature of this energy allows it to affect the same areas in a more reliable way. This allows multiple treatments to improve the loosest areas of skin without creating this disparity. The result is an improved skin tightening result, which looks more natural and produces a better overall result.
Skin Tightening with Minimal Complications
Many methods of skin tightening have undesirable side effects. Cutera® Titan™ does away with many of those effects. It provides even skin tightening while reducing the risk of cellular damage and pigmentation changes.
Couple this with the fact that Cutera® Titan™ provides skin tightening with minimal discomfort both during and after treatment, and you may have a perfect option for turning back the clock on aging.
