Skin Tightening Q & A

Why does skin wrinkle and sag?

When you’re young, your skin contains a thick layer of collagen and elastin. That layer acts like padding, giving your face a plump and youthful appearance. Over the years, you lose a portion of collagen and elastin, leaving your skin to sag and pool into wrinkles, lines, and folds.

The effects of sun damage, environmental exposure, and harsh products can exacerbate the aging process, making wrinkles and lines even more pronounced.

How does skin tightening work?

At Cosmetic Med Solutions, Dr. Watson uses Titan®, an FDA-approved skin tightening tool. The Titan system uses infrared energy to heat the deeper layers of your skin to a level where cellular damage occurs.

Your body responds with its natural immune reaction, increasing collagen production and hastening cellular turnover to repair the damaged tissues. That leaves you with a thicker layer of collagen, which smooths lines, wrinkles, and folds.

Because the new collagen is naturally produced, the effects are lasting. Multiple treatments may be required to achieve optimal results, and Dr. Watson can discuss your treatment plan during your initial consultation.

What improvements are possible with Titan skin tightening?

Treatments with Titan leave you with noticeably smoother, tighter skin. Titan treatments can improve the following:

  • Forehead lines
  • Jowls
  • Sagging cheeks
  • Loose neck skin

It’s important to understand that the effects take time to develop. You may begin to notice improvement within two months, but the full effects may take as long as six months to become apparent.

Am I a good candidate for Titan skin tightening?

Most men and women benefit from skin tightening treatments, but there are a few notable exceptions. Speak with Dr. Watson about whether skin tightening is right for you, and if other aesthetic treatments might be better if the following conditions apply:

  • Diabetes
  • Autoimmune disease
  • Recent chemotherapy treatment
  • Age in excess of 65

For all others, side effects are generally mild. They include temporary redness and sensitivity in the treatment area, and occasional blanching, or white patches, which resolve quickly.
