New Non-Surgical Skin-Tightening Technology Is Quick, Effective, Painless and Risk-Free
Titan ProcedureTM Now Available from MesoBoutique
Great Neck, NY (August 31, 2006) - A promising new light-based technology for tightening lax skin, the Cutera Titan ProcedureTM, is now available from MesoBoutique, a center for non-surgical cosmetic therapies provided by board-certified physician Nodar Janas, MD.
The Titan ProcedureTM is a virtually painless and cost-effective non-surgical treatment that safely and effectively delivers a more youthful appearance by tightening skin on the face, neck, abdomen, thighs and upper-arms. It delivers remarkable skin-tightening results without the downtime, scars or excessive costs associated with surgery.
"This procedure is ideal for patients of almost any age, race or type of skin," said Dr. Janas. "And, the results are incredible. It's the most advanced technology available today to deliver dramatic results without pain or downtime."
"The Titan ProcedureTM represents a real breakthrough because it's risk-free and delivers excellent results. It is a vast improvement over previous radio frequency (RF)-based procedures because it is painless and avoids the associated fat necrosis and skin dimpling. I predict Titan is going to be the fastest-growing cosmetic procedure around."
The Titan ProcedureTM is a useful tool for someone in their 30s to 60s who wants to improve their appearance with a non-invasive procedure that yields very natural, but noticeable results. Appropriate candidates could include someone whose face and neck are beginning to sag, a new mother whose tummy isn't as tight and smooth as it used to be, or a patient who has experienced significant weight loss and needs to tighten loose skin.
How it Works
With age, the collagen that provides volume and structure to our skin, or dermis, begins to break down, resulting in sagging and wrinkles. The Titan ProcedureTM uses an infrared light source to safely apply heat to the dermis, causing collagen contractions that stimulate long-term collagen rebuilding.
The Titan ProcedureTM 's proprietary light source emits a range of infrared wavelengths that are absorbed by water, providing a safe and comfortable solution for tightening the skin. Since the skin is protected through continuous contact cooling, it requires no anesthesia and no downtime. The only side effects are occasional mild redness and/or swelling at the treatment site, which lasts no longer than a couple of hours. Patients can return to their usual activities immediately.
Many patients see and feel results as soon as treatment is completed, because of collagen contraction, or coiling, but the long-lasting effects of the procedure develop as new collagen is produced, typically over three to six months. Best results may require a series of up to three treatments, spaced one month apart. The effects last anywhere from one to two years.
Treatments take between 15 minutes to an hour, depending on size of the area being treated. Titan ProcedureTM treatments with Dr. Janas range in price from $500 to $2,500 for the face and neck, and $1,500 to $4,000 for larger areas of the body. For more information about the Titan ProcedureTM or to schedule an appointment with Dr. Janas, please call 516-482-0002.
The Titan ProcedureTM is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a topical heating agent to increase local tissue temperatures and circulation. Additional 510 (k) clearances are pending.
