The good news is the hair will be visible reduced in density, coarseness and color, resulting in a very satisfactory outcome.
Multiple treatments are needed: This is due to the hair growth cycle. Only the hairs in an active growth cycle can be targeted; thus, only ¼ to 1/3 of hair is targeted per visit.
Factors of hair growth: These include age, weight, sex, metabolism, ethnicity, hormones and medications. Due to the variables, it is difficult to determine the total number of treatments an individual will require.
Percentage of reduction: At this time, total hair removal is not feasible. Most people experience a reduction of 70 to 90% after a series of treatments, as well as a reduction in thickness and color of the remaining hair.

As the skin ages, the collagen fibers begin to stretch and the end result is sagging skin. The Titan procedure works via two methods. First, it heats the weakened collagen, which causes it to immediately contract and thicken. Secondly, it produces micro-injuries to the dermis layer of the skin, which results in it making new collagen over the next several months.
Titan uses safe infrared light to heat the deep layer of the skin. The result is collagen contraction and long-term collagen rebuilding, which leaves patients with younger looking tighter skin. The upper layers of the skin are protected by continuous cooling. This special cooling feature allows effective deep heating of the collagen layer without affecting the epidermis.
