While wisdom is one of the many benefits of aging, getting up in years can also mean your skin lacks the elasticity it once had that made it appear toned and youthful. Through laser skin tightening procedures, much of that lost elasticity can be regained, with the help of Philadelphia plastic surgeon Dr. Bruce Genter.
At the Aesthetic Plastic Surgery & Skin Care Center, we’re pleased to offer laser skin tightening with the TITAN system. TITAN is a non-invasive laser treatment designed to tighten skin and improve skin texture on many areas of the body.
TITAN Laser: Who can benefit?
Loose skin on many body areas can be treated with TITAN, including the:
TITAN is designed to make your skin firmer and smoother. Laser skin tightening with the TITAN is safe for any skin type. If you are bothered by loose skin on your body and don’t desire a surgical procedure to correct it, TITAN may be an appropriate option for you.
We often recommend it for patients who are early middle-aged, who want to postpone a face lift or neck lift. Patients who want to postpone or forgo a tummy tuck (with skin laxity on their abdomen) may also be good candidates for laser skin tightening.
Laser Skin Tightening: What’s involved?
TITAN treatment is performed using a special handpiece that administers infrared light energy. The light selectively heats the dermis and collagen deep beneath the skin surface, causing it to contract, while protecting and comforting the skin with a special cooling tip. The process is generally comfortable for most patients and an anesthetic is usually not required.
After Titan Laser Skin Tightening: What to Expect
After the procedure, collagen contraction and rebuilding occurs to firm and refine your skin. There is no downtime necessary. You could undergo the procedure on your lunch break and resume activities the same day.
