Medical Spa Knowledge: Everything you need to know about skin tightening

Pretty-Woman-SquintIf you’ve long been wondering what to do with lax skin around the face, neck, arms, or stomach you may have considered skin tightening treatments available at medical spas. These procedures have amazing potential to tighten skin that’s lost its elasticity, but they require a professional hand that can only be found in a medical spa. One of the most famous methods available is Titan Skin Tightening, a light-based treatment available in medical spas. It uses light energy to heat the area under your skin, causing collagen contraction and growth, leading to tighter skin. It’s a proven, safe, and effective way to make your skin look younger and healthier, and best of all it works with any type of skin.

Shedding light on Titan Skin Tightening: how it works

At the hands of a trained medical spa professional, a safe infrared light is used to heat the dermis beneath the skin’s surface. The heat triggers collagen contraction which in turn causes the skin to tighten. Continuous cooling is applied to protect the surface of your skin during the procedure, and the infrared light heats the deep dermis in a carefully controlled area. Once the procedure ends, new collagen grown is stimulated, giving you further skin tightening and reduced laxness, wrinkles and lines long after you leave the medical spa. This is ideal for many common loose skin areas, particularly areas of the face such as the jaw line and chin, or around your abdomen or upper arm. Although Titan is extremely safe it is still a medical procedure, you should always consult with the physician at the medical spa before undergoing treatment.

What to expect before your first visit to a medical spa for a skin tightening treatment

The first step in a treatment plan is always a consultation with the supervising physician and their highly trained staff members at the medical spa you’ve chosen. It’s always best to make sure you’re working with a medical spa that has a knowledgeable staff who are able to answer any questions you have about the procedure, so make sure you ask as many questions as you can think of. If you’re uncomfortable there or aren’t satisfied with their knowledge, find a more reputable place to go for your treatment.

During the consultation the physician will work with you to decide on treatment areas, and to determine how many treatments you will need. A single treatment is sufficient for some patients, but the exact number required for optimal results varies from patient to patient. Generally between one and three medical spa visits are required. The treatment itself is designed to be received without the need for any painkillers or medication, as the Titan infrared method is less painful than other skin tightening methods you may have heard of. You will feel a brief heating sensation with each Titan pulse. The length of your session will vary depending on the size of the area being treated, usually under an hour.

Seeing Results: What happens after you leave?

You may notice some effects immediately after leaving the medical spa; however, most patients see the results gradually over a three to six month period as collagen continues to remodel and the skin continues to tighten. Following the treatment you may have some redness and mild swelling in the area being treated, but this is unlikely and will fade in just a few hours if it happens at all.

If you have any questions after your treatment, please consult with the medical spa physician. They will always be happy to answer your questions. Patients of this procedure continue to enjoy the benefits of Titan Skin Tightening even after one to two years, but please remember your skin will continue to age over time, so you may wish to consider yearly maintenance treatments at your medical spa for lasting results. By continuing to stimulate collagen contraction and growth you can maintain your new radiant and healthy skin for years.
