Everybody knows their skin will become looser and start to sag with age. But knowing this fact doesn’t make it any easier to accept when your skin starts to lose its elasticity and youthful glow, especially if it starts earlier than expected.
If you have loose or sagging skin around your face or body that you want to eliminate, Cutera Titan laser skin tightening treatments at Laser Skin Solutions Jacksonville might be right for you.
Keep reading to learn everything you need to know about this laser skin care treatment and what causes your skin to lose its elasticity in the first place.
What Causes Skin to Sag?
As you get older, your body’s production of collagen and elastin slows down. These two proteins provide crucial support to the connective tissue underlying your skin. As collagen and elastin production slows, your connective tissue becomes weaker.
As a result, it can no longer firmly hold your skin in place. Over time, this lack of support causes your skin to become thinner and looser, leading to drooping or sagging skin.
Loose skin doesn’t exclusively affect seniors. Many people begin noticing a change in their skin’s elasticity and texture in their 30s.
What Is Cutera Titan?
Cutera Titan is an FDA-approved device designed to tighten and lift skin that has become loose with age. It can be used on all skin types and tones, including tanned and deeply pigmented skin.
How Does Cutera Titan Work?
The secret behind Cutera Titan’s effectiveness is its infrared (IR) laser technology. During treatment, the Titan deploys beams of targeted IR light that penetrate to your dermis. The IR energy gently heats the upper dermis layer, creating small, controlled micro wounds within your skin.
This triggers your body’s natural healing response and stimulates collagen and elastin production. By doing so, this treatment is able to reverse some of the effects of aging on your skin. Infrared light is a gentle and extremely safe technology for non-surgical skin tightening.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
Laser skin tightening with Cutera Titan is extremely versatile and can be used in various areas around your body, including your:
- Upper arms
Whether childbirth has left you with loose skin around your stomach or the natural aging process has left you with a drooping jawline, we can help restore a tighter contour and more youthful appearance.
6 Benefits of Cutera Skin Tightening Laser Treatments
Read on to learn about six benefits of Cutera Titan laser skin care treatments at our Jacksonville Beach, FL, clinic.
1. Non-Surgical Skin Tightening and Lifting
Many people want to avoid surgery for one reason or another but falsely believe it’s the only way to tighten up loose skin. Laser skin tightening is a fantastic way to address the appearance of mild to moderate skin laxity without the need for any anesthetic, incisions, or sutures.
Non-surgical skin tightening is significantly safer and quicker than surgery and doesn’t require any downtime.
2. Minimizes the Appearance of Fine Lines and Wrinkles
Many people don’t realize that fine lines and wrinkles are actually mild forms of loose skin. Since most lines and wrinkles form as a result of collagen loss, it makes sense that laser skin tightening can minimize their appearance by stimulating collagen production.
Using Cutera Titan laser treatments, we can minimize the appearance of:
- Nasolabial folds
- Crow’s feet
- Forehead creases
- Crepey skin
- Frown lines
- Cheek wrinkles
- Under eye troughs
- Smile lines
- Marionette lines
- Perioral wrinkles
As your body’s collagen production increases, these fine lines and wrinkles will smooth out, and your skin will appear plumper and more youthful.
3. Provides Uniform Energy Distribution
One of the biggest advantages of Cutera Titan is its ability to provide uniform energy distribution. This translates to more effective treatments and even, natural-looking results.
Cutera Titan is gentle and precise enough to be used on the delicate areas around your face, such as around your eyes and mouth.
4. Quick Treatment Times
Unlike surgical skin tightening options, treatment with Cutera Titan does not take a large chunk of time out of your day. Most laser treatment sessions with Cutera Titan are done in less than an hour. And with no downtime necessary after treatment, you’re free to get back to what matters most in your life.
5. Results Continue to Improve
With some treatments, what you see a couple of days after treatment is what you get. But the results of Cutera Titan skin tightening continue to improve for three to six months after treatment is complete.
The IR energy deployed by Cutera Titan causes your skin to begin to contract immediately. This means some people can see some initial results right after treatment. However, the full results are not visible for a few months.
6. No Lengthy Treatment Plans
Many laser treatments require at least four to six sessions to achieve your desired results. But Cutera Titan slashes this number in half to just two to three treatments for most people. This makes Cutera Titan the most convenient treatment for most people and saves you time, money, and office visits.
We will determine the appropriate number of laser skin tightening sessions for you after we discuss your needs and assess your skin in person.
