Thermage and Titan Skin Tigenting

What is Thermage?Thermage NYC Thermage is a cosmetic procedure using radiofrequency energy to smooth, tighten and contour the skin for a younger looking appearance.  Thermage is non-invasive and safe for all skin types.  It can be used for tightening on the face and the body.  On the face, Thermage addresses sagging skin, jowls, “turkey neck” and lack of definition.  On the body, Thermage can be used to treat wrinkled or “crepey” looking skin, as well as the appearance of celluluite.  It is intended to be a one-time treatment, with little or no downtime. How does Thermage work? Thermage uses radiofrequency technology to heat the layers of the skin containing collagen.  The energy tightens existing collagen and stimulates the formation of new collagen – this reduces sagging, improves contouring and helps the appearance of fine lines on the skin surface.  Results generally appear in the two to six months following the treatment session and can last for years, depending on the health of your skin. What is Titan? The Titan uses infra-red light energy to heat the dermis below the skin’s surface and stimulate collagen to contract and tighten.  This produces skin that appears firmer in the treated area.  A series of treatments is performed for optimal results; improvement is generally seen three to six months following the treatment regimen.  Titan addresses sagging skin around the jawline, chin and even on the body.  There is little or no downtime after each Titan treatment. How does Titan work? Titan uses infra-red light to heat the deep levels of the skin to stimulate collage to contract and tighten.  It also stimulates the formation of new collagen.  This reduces sagging and improves the appearance of skin in the treated area.  Results generally appear in three to six months following the treatments and can last for years, depending on the health of your skin. What is the difference between Titan and Thermage? Titan and Thermage both work to stimulate the contraction of existing collagen and the stimulation of new collagen.  They work in different ways; Thermage uses radiofrequency energy and requires just one treatment.  Titan uses infra-red light and produces the best results when it is performed as a series of multiple treatments.  Neither treatment has significant downtime.  They are both performed in a dermatologist office, there is no need for anesthesia.  Thermage is performed at Schweiger Dermatology, due to the dramatic results obtained after just one treatment. Who is a good candidate for Thermage or Titan treatment? Any male or female, of any skin color, who is noticing sagging or “crepey” skin is a candidate for Thermage or Titan.
