ReFirme Skin Tightening

Refirme Skin Tightening (ST) features revolutionary elos technology to comfortably achieve a more youthful, tightened and toned appearance without downtime.

 What You Need to Know About Skin Tightening

ReFirme Skin Tightening is ideal for targeting those telltale signs of aging, including, sagging under the eyes, saggy brow lines and intensified nasolabial folds.

ReFirme ST combines bi-polar radio frequency and infrared light energies to precisely heat dermal tissue that has experienced collagen loss. This stimulates collagen production and produces a firming effect in lax skin. By remodeling the dermal layer of the skin and stimulating new collagen growth, fine wrinkles are reduced, noticeable lifting can be observed on sagging skin, and the texture of your skin becomes smoother, more luminous and toned. The precision of the heating process ensures a safe, effective treatment with no downtime.

Other skin tightening treatments (like Thermage or Titan) are time and treatment-intensive and often too painful for many patients (most of these types treatments need to be done under anesthesia for full effects). With ReFirme ST, you can have tight, firm skin without surgery. The treatment is FDA approved, safe and effective.

Frequently Asked Questions

Am I a candidate?

ReFirme is effective on all skin types and skin color. A minimum of 3-4 treatments is usually required for best results. The total number of treatments recommended depends on your skin’s condition. Your initial treatments will be done every 3-4 weeks. After that, maintenance treatments are recommended every 3-6 months to maintain the effects.

What to expect post-treatment?

Immediately post treatment, most patients feel a little bit of warmth in the skin similar to light sunburn, which will usually diminish in 1-3 hours. Makeup can be applied immediately after a treatment and you can resume any normal activities. There is no downtime with this procedure.

Over the course of your treatments, and after as collagen continues to develop for a few months, fine wrinkles within the treatment area will be reduced and sagging skin will be noticeably lifted. Texture on the skin will also become smoother and more toned.

While results can be seen after just one treatment, most patients see a combination of gradual and cumulative results over the course of a Refirme series with optimal results visible in 6-12 months. This timeframe allows for complete healing and the production of new collagen and elastin to replace damaged tissue.

What areas can be treated with ReFirme?

Most patients treat either the full face or the full face and neck. ReFirme Skin Tightening treatments can also be done on other areas of the body, such as the chest, arms, stomach, or buttocks for additional lifting and smoothing.

What happens during the treatment?

Before you begin ReFirme treatments, you will discuss the procedure with your provider, sign a consent and take pre-treatment photos. Prior to your treatment a topical numbing cream will be applied to the area being treated to reduce any associated discomfort. The topical cream is kept on for about 15-20 minutes.

Just prior to the procedure, your skin will be cleansed, protective eyewear will be applied and cold ultrasound gel will be smoothed on the skin’s surface. Most patients describe a warm sensation as the radiofrequency energy enters their skin. The procedure takes anywhere from 10-30 minutes depending on the areas treated.

Does it hurt?

Because Refirme Skin Tightening uses far less optical energy than some other IPL systems, it is also one of the least painful skin rejuvenation treatments available. Most patients report little to no discomfort during their treatments, and no recovery time is needed once the procedure is completed. Many patients return to normal activities immediately after the treatment. Cooling of the skin’s surface provides enhanced safety and additional comfort.
