Skin Tightening

Serving Minneapolis, St. Paul & The Twin Cities Metro Area, MN

Kass Clinics is proud to be one of the first cosmetic clinics to introduce two of the latest breakthroughs in light-based skin therapy technologies: Infrared TITAN™ and radiofrequency ReFirme™.

TITAN™ and ReFirme™ Technology

The TITAN and ReFirme™ technology and skin tightening procedure minimizes skin looseness and stimulates long-term collagen rebuilding. The result is younger-looking and tighter skin. The TITAN and ReFirme procedure treats sagging and redundant skin throughout the body including the abdomen and thighs, and is also used to tone, lift, and tighten the skin on the face. TITAN and ReFirme is also used as a treatment for the loose skin often found on older necks and is very effective for the sagging skin found under upper arms.

Before undergoing a surgical facelift or tummy tuck, the TITAN and ReFirme non-surgical procedures are worth considering for several reasons:

  • Non-surgical, non-ablative
  • Tailored to your needs, very comfortable
  • FDA approved using safe, infrared light and radiofrequency energy
  • Provides continuous, epidermal cooling for safer treatment
  • Produces excellent results.

The Kass Clinics Difference

We feel it is vital to assess whether you are a good candidate for these treatments before you actually have them performed. You will not have a procedure recommended if it’s not be in your best interest.

Your consultation will include a Visia Complexion Analysis to assess the extent of underlying collagen damage, since the goal of these technologies is the stimulation of collagen and skin retraction. In some instances, correcting photodamage  may need to precede skin tightening for the most effective, long-term results. When needed, volume enhancement with fillers, such as Juvederm and Radiesse, will complement the skin tightening effects.  Overall, you will notice younger looking, tighter skin. Before undergoing a surgical facelift or tummy tuck, the TITAN or ReFirme non-surgical procedure is worth considering.


Q. How long do skin tightening treatments take?

The treatments can take 20 minutes up to an hour, and could be performed during your lunch hour.

Q. How many treatments are required?

A minimum of 2 to up to 5 treatments every four weeks may be required.

Q. What areas can be treated?

Loose and redundant skin areas anywhere on the body including the abdomen, thighs and arms can be treated. Treatments are also used to tone, lift and tighten skin on the face and neck.

Q. Who is a good candidate for a Titan or Refirme procedure?

The best candidates are people in their 40s and 50s who are beginning to notice sagging skin, particularly under the chin and abdomen.

Q. What does the procedure accomplish?

The procedure creates significant heat that targets water, which results in collagen retraction and skin tightening.

Q. Is the procedure painful?

A built-in skin cooling system allows the continuous direct cooling of the epidermis during treatment to minimize discomfort. Patients may experience a warm sensation. Anesthesia is not required. However, pain medication is available if needed.

Q. Is the procedure safe?

Yes. The procedure heats the skin while protecting the epidermis.

Q. What are the risks and side effects?

Slight pinkness is noticed after after the treatment. A rare side effect is a blister.

Q. Are the Titan and ReFirme technologies FDA approved?


Q. When will I see results of skin tightening treatments?

Some people will see some results immediately. Most people will begin to see tightening in the treated area about three weeks following the procedure. Gradual improvement occurs up to six months following the procedure.
