Birmingham, Alabama Laser Skin Tightening
Laser Treatments for Firmer Skin and Fewer Wrinkles
Signs of aging can appear as sagging skin around the face and neck. Patients who desire firmer skin and fewer wrinkles in these areas can benefit from Laser Skin Tightening at Spa Greystone using the Titan laser. Results are immediate, though two or three treatments spaced about a month apart are usually necessary for best results. Laser Skin Tightening can give you smoother skin and a younger-looking complexion with long-lasting results and without the downtime associated with surgical procedures.
Titan's light-based platform provides a more uniform distribution of energy for heating the deep dermis than other energy sources, such as RF (radio-frequency).
Laser Skin Tightening Frequently Asked Questions
How does the Cutera Titan work?
Titan utilizes a safe infrared light to heat the dermis well below the skin's surface. During the procedure, the skin's top surface (epidermis) is protected through continuous cooling with the Titan handpiece.
What areas respond best to the Titan procedure?
Patients have been successfully treated on many areas of the body. The most common areas treated are the jawline, under the chin, and the abdomen.
Who can be treated?
Since the Titan procedure heats tissue under the skin's surface, patients of any skin type or age can be treated. Your physician can advise you if the Titan is right for you.
How many treatments will I need?
Although a single treatment has produced very good results for many patients, it is quite common for patients to have two or three treatments over a few months. Your physician can advise you as to the number and frequency of treatments recommended for optimal results.
What happens after the treatment?
Immediately following the treatment, you may notice some redness and mild swelling in the treated area. Both should dissipate within a few hours. Consult with your physician for complete information on the the benefits and risks of treatment.
What do treatments feel like?
Each Titan pulse you will feel a brief heating sensation. Some patients are more comfortable taking a mild pain reliever beforehand, though many patients are comfortable without any medication.
