Why do we experience sagging skin?

Sagging skin comes with age; it’s often a subtle shift in your skin’s appearance that occurs over time. As you age, your elastin and collagen production slows down, which causes a loss of volume and firmness in your skin that was abundant in your twenties.

It’s a completely natural part of the aging process, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t something we can do to combat sagging skin!

At the Physician Skincare Centre, we use the Cutera Titan laser to help tighten sagging skin.

Your solution for sagging skin

Cutera’s Titan laser skin tightening treatment is a procedure that delivers infrared light to the skin. This infrared light creates deep dermal heating in the skin, which stimulates collagen production. Over time, this boost in collagen production from within leads to firmer and rejuvenated skin on the outside.

The Titan Laser is a great alternative to more invasive, high risk procedures that require extensive recovery time. With the Titan Laser, patients can experience tighter skin safely, without ever needing anesthesia or surgery to get results. Patients will reap the benefits of the Titan Laser even months after treatment.

What to expect during treatment

During a laser skin tightening treatment, a handpiece continuously cools the skin while the infrared light from the Titan Laser heats the dermis layer of the skin underneath it. The treatment is relatively painless, requiring zero anesthesia or medication.

Patients will feel a heating sensation on their skin as the Titan handpiece glides over the targeted area. Some patients might prefer to take a mild pain reliever prior to treatment but it’s not required. Individuals might experience mild redness and swelling following treatment but these symptoms generally fade after a few hours.

Our skin tightening laser procedure is an effective, non invasive treatment ideal for individuals looking to tighten loose or sagging skin on the face, neck, arms, stomach and thighs.
