Medical Conditions and Titan

Titan is a cosmetic procedure which employs an infrared light source to tighten skin from the face, body and neck. The infrared light source heats up the skin, resulting in immediate contraction of collagen. A cooling mechanism in the Titan hand piece protects the skin. After the procedure is over, new collagen is produced, resulting in a more youthful appearance with tighter skin.

Titan may cause some swelling or redness on the skin, as the infrared light heats up the skin below the surface. The entire procedure takes about an hour to finish, and you will be able to see results only 3?to 6 months after treatment. Titan is suitable for people of all ages and all skin types and tones. Some common areas on which Titan is used include underarms, thighs, knees, neck, chest, breasts and abdomen. Titan also removes or softens wrinkle lines, crow's feet, forehead lines, sagging cheeks and smoker lines, found around the lips.

There are a few medical conditions that could be aggravated, or result in undesired consequences, if exposed to the Titan treatment.

Dysfunctional Liver

A dysfunctional liver can cause symptoms such as skin rashes, dark circles under the eyes, bad breath and itchy skin. In such cases, it is advised to consult a physician before undergoing the treatment, to avoid any negative reactions.

Open Wounds

If you have any open wounds in the area to be treated, you are advised to wait until the wound heals completely before undergoing the procedure. Since the procedure employs infrared light to heat up areas below the skin, the lack of an epidermis layer may cause complications.

Apart from this, if you have any allergies, or any other medical conditions of any kind, it is suggested that you consult your physician first before undergoing Titan. This will ensure that you won't face any complications after the procedure.
