Project Description

The CAPS Clinic and My Genesis (Canberra ACT) specialise in skin tightening treatments.  Both men and women, who are concerned with ageing in the form of loose skin or loss of elasticity on their face or neck can benefit from the treatment. This procedure is not an alternative to surgery however it can achieve tightening of the cheeks, jowls and neck.

The Dermal Clinicians at the CAPS Clinic use the Cutera Titan system.  This modality uses highly advanced infra-red technology to achieve results with little to no downtime.

Titan is a non-surgical treatment utilising a safe, infrared light to heat the dermis well below the skin’s surface. This controlled heating can cause immediate collagen contraction resulting in tighter firmer skin. During the procedure, the skin’s surface (epidermis) is protected through continuous cooling with the Titan hand piece. After the procedure, new collagen growth results in further tightening with the improvement of lax skin, folds and lines providing a firmer, younger looking appearance.

On average, 3 treatments are needed to achieve the ideal result. To maintain results, one treatment every 3-6 months is usually required.  
Some patients see results immediately. However, for most patients, the results are gradual over a three to six month period as new collagen is formed and the skin tightens.

A treatment can take up to two hours depending on the area being treated. In some cases your Dermal Clinician will suggest layering Laser Genesis with your Titan treatments. Laser genesis works by heating the upper dermis and by combining this treatment with Titan you can address concerns such as fine lines, large pores, uneven skin texture, diffuse redness and scarring whilst still firming the skin.

A tailored skin care and strict sun protection regime will help you enhance and maintain the results. Our Dermal Clinicians can personalise a program for you. On average, clients return to the clinic once a year for a maintenance treatment.
Thermage is just one of a number of skin tightening treatments on the market. Through our research and extensive trials of equipment we have found the Cutera Titan provides a more uniform distribution of energy for heating the deep dermis than other energy sources. We have also found Titan to be more targeted, tolerable and affordable as a series of  Titan treatments is less than one Thermage treatment.
