If you are troubled with sagging, wrinkled skin on your face and body, this is usually due to loss of collagen. It frequently results from over-exposure to the sun, previous weight fluctuations or simply the aging process. With the gold-standard in dermal remodeling and skin tightening devices, Dr. Christi is bringing back your youthfulness with minimally invasive and non-invasive treatments called, Secret RF and Titan.
Recent surveys by the American Dermatologic Society report that over 70% of patients are seeking cosmetic procedures to address the signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles and cobbled skin texture as well as skin discoloration. If you find yourself with any of these conditions, our latest in-office procedure, Secret RF offers you the chance to reverse them with little to no downtime.
Secret RF is the latest advancement using radio frequency (RF) in combination with microneedling to target the signs of aging and sagging skin. With the ability to treat various depths of the skin’s tissue, Dr. Christi tailors each treatment to your individual needs. If you are looking to minimize wrinkles, acne scars, photoaging or striae, talk to us about the solution so many of our patients find beneficial.
There are virtually no body areas excluded-not even those wrinkles that are showing up above your knees! Secret RF can deliver fast and efficient treatment in large areas at various depths in less than 20 minutes. Your face, neck, chest and body can all be treated for a more youthful and vibrant appearance.
Titan is a safe, FDA approved, non-surgical procedure that uses infrared light to tighten your skin and reverse the signs of aging. It treats laxity and loose skin in areas such as:
It works by applying deep dermal heating into the dermis to activate collagen and tighten the fibers while at the same time cooling the epidermis providing a safe but highly effective treatment.
Collagen fibers respond to this stimulation by building up new collagen underneath your skin- in the dermis-to support, lift and provide that more youthful look. By targeting this deeper area, you leave with no visible results of treatment. It’s simply you building your own fresh new collagen!
Inside the handpiece, internal pre-cooling technology prepares and protects your skin. The heat is then applied and the post cooling period follows. All this is accomplished to provide a maximum collagen response with ultimate skin protection.
Most areas require approximately 2-4 treatments. You will typically have visible results after two treatments with continued improvements for the next 3 months as your collagen continues to manufacture and grow new strands and fibers.
Since your skin is protected by a larger amount of melanin, you don’t usually have issues with photoaging, but you can see prominent nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and drooping jowls. As with lighter skin colors, younger, darker skin toned patients often see wrinkling and sagging on the abdomen following pregnancy.
These are all areas that the Titan can target and provide you with less visible signs of aging.
Additionally, since you are at greater risk for keloids and scarring, the Titan treatment may be a better alternative than cosmetic surgery.
A study published in the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery, found use of Titan with skin of color including Asian patients with skin types IV and V very effective. At the six-month follow-up period, 86 percent of patients had documented improvement. A patient survey was conducted at the same interval and results showed 100 percent of patients saw improvement in their conditions. (1)
