How to Laser Your Way to Firmer, Smoother Skin
You’ve tried creams, lotions, and serums, and you’ve even tried some questionable exercises. But still, your face shows signs of aging. Before you opt for surgery, check out our noninvasive Titan laser skin tightening treatment. Here’s what it can do.

Eventually, we all see that first wrinkle appear near our eyes or around our mouths. Your first response may be to up your cleansing and moisturizing game by buying expensive skin care products. And while we’re all for quality skin care to keep your skin healthy and strong enough to fight premature aging, we also know that once your skin has started to sag and wrinkle, you need next-level assistance.

Dr. Jon Rawson and our team of medical experts at Woodlands Aesthetics Center in The Woodlands, Texas, understands the biology behind loosening skin, which is why we turn to science for the answer. To shore up the damage done by gravity, we offer the Titan skin tightening laser system. Here’s how it works.

Why your skin sags with age

Before we dive into the benefits of Titan laser skin tightening, let’s take a look at what’s happening to your skin.

Young, healthy skin contains a few essential components: collagen, elastin, and fat. The first two are fibrous proteins that give your skin structure and resilience. You also have a subcutaneous fat layer when you’re young, giving your face smooth contours and a soft feel.

However, as you age, your body slows down its production of the key ingredients, and your skin goes through some dramatic changes. Without the scaffolding provided by collagen, your skin loses its strength. Less fat means thinner skin and sunken features. As elastin wanes, your skin no longer bounces back after stretching, tugging, and rubbing. Suddenly, gravity has more power than ever, and your facial skin begins to droop and wrinkle.

This discussion wouldn’t be complete if we didn’t mention fibroblasts, the cells that manufacture collagen and elastin. When you’re young, fibroblasts crank out these proteins in large supply, but the process slows down as you get older. 

By the time you’re 50, fibroblast cells not only radically decrease the production of collagen and elastin, but they also stop regenerating, lose their identity, and adopt the characteristics of other types of cells. Soon, these malfunctioning cells take a toll on the appearance of your skin.

How lasers can tighten your skin

Now, for the good news. We can help you reverse the consequences of aging with laser technology. If loose skin is your main complaint, we recommend Titan treatments to lift and smooth your skin. 

The innovative Titan device incorporates three powerful technologies in each treatment:

  1. Bi-polar radiofrequency energy
  2. LED light energy
  3. Infrared heat energy

The heat and light penetrate your skin and target damaged skin cells for repair. In a short and painless treatment session, the Titan laser skin tightening system accomplishes several goals at once:

  • Stimulates your skin’s renewing capabilities
  • Contracts existing collagen and elastin fibers
  • Kick-starts new production of collagen and elastin

You walk away feeling an immediate difference in your skin, but the benefits don’t stop there. Over the next few weeks and months, your body continues to amp up its natural skin tightening systems, and the results improve with time. 

Titan skin tightening works best on areas of your body that don’t contain a lot of fat, but it can be used anywhere you have loose skin.
