Cutera Titan Laser
The Cutera Titan Face Lift technology uses a unique light source to create a thermal profile in the dermis with the goal of tightening facial laxity and stimulating collagen growth. The big advantage is facial wrinkle reduction and tightening without down time. You could have a treatment over lunch and return to work that afternoon!
Before and After
TITAN® – Infrared Light 1100-1800nm
Titan is the first tailored infrared light source for sustained deep dermal heating with the most frequent use on the face, submental area, neck and abdomen.
About the Infrared Wavelength
The broadband spectrum of 1100 to 1800nm was selected and tailored for ideal water absorption and allows uniform and even heating of the dermis to produce volumetric heating. Volumetric heating, 1-2mm deep, is necessary to produce the desired clinical result and requires sustained temperature increase in the dermis. Further, the infrared light-based approach provides uniform consistent heating independent of skin structure, i.e. dermal thickness or fat layers.
Advantages of Titan Laser Treatments
Deep dermal heating with new collagen formation over time
Precise placement of heat in the dermis with continuous epidermal cooling
Minimal discomfort during treatment
No single-use disposables-low cost of ownership
Can be used on all skin types including tanned skin
The Cutera Titan® gives you an all-natural option to enhance skin tone. Titan uses light energy to heat the dermis deep beneath your skin's surface. Without surgery, recovery time, or injections, Titan is an ideal solution for your face, abdomen, arms and more.
How does the Cutera Titan work?
Titan uses a safe infrared light to heat the dermis well below the skin's surface. During the procedure, the skin's surface (epidermis) is protected through continuous cooling with the Titan handpiece.

The Titan difference
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).
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 technician can advise you if the Titan is right for you.
There is a big demand for a non-surgical facelift procedure to treat facial laxity and tighten loose skin. The first technology able to accomplish this was the Thermage radiofrequency device. The Titan face lift thermal profiles are similar to thermal profiles produced using the Thermage radio frequency (RF) approach to deep dermal heating, but with some additional capabilities. According to Gollnick, the carefully tailored combination of wavelengths available with the Titan have been shown in tissue models to create significant heating in the dermis at a depth over 3 mm while the epidermis temperature is safely kept below 40C. By modifying the combination of wavelengths, various depths of thermal response can be created. Also, optical power delivery to the dermis and the tissue response to light are straightforward and more easily understood than the interaction of RF energy and tissue, used by Thermage, potentially creating a more repeatable and reproducible result.
