What does Titan do?

Our skin contains many collagen strands, which give our skin structure, elasticity and an overall youthful appearance.  Collagen strands are shaped and coiled like springs.  Over time, the coiled strands become stretched out causing our skin to sag.  Additionally, as we age, the amount of collagen present in our skin decreases, leading to decreased elasticity and wrinkling of the skin.

The effect of Titan can be seen both immediately and over time.  Titan’s initial effect causes the collagen springs to tighten and contract.  This can often be seen immediately after the treatment.  The later and more gradual effect of Titan is the stimulation of increased collagen production. Increased collagen production can take 3-6 months before the maximum benefit is present.

Is Titan safe?

How long does the Titan treatment last?

– The effect of Titan does not end at a certain time.  You will maintain the benefits of having had Titan treatments.  However, Titan does not stop the aging process, it only turns back the aging clock.  Our bodies are programmed to breakdown collagen and stretch in response to the forces of gravity.  Because of this we recommend an annual Titan maintenance treatments to preserve your results. Think of it as making a deposit in your bank or savings account – in this case it is in your collagen bank or account.
