ReFirme™ Skin Rejuvenation
What is the ReFirme Skin Tightening procedure?
The ReFirme ST procedure combines safe and effective levels of infrared light and bipolar radio-frequency (electric current) energies to remodel the dermal layer of the skin by stimulating new collagen growth. Both laser and radio frequency have been used separately for decades in medicine and surgery, but the ST exclusively combines infrared light and bipolar radio-frequency energy for ideal treatment outcomes with a very low risk of side effects and virtually no downtime.
What can I expect from ReFirme ST treatments?
ST can improve skin laxity and sagginess of the face, neck and some body areas such as the abdomen or upper arms. Skin texture can also be smoothed out by the tightening and firming effect of treatment. This treatment is performed non-ablatively, which means this is a non-invasive procedure. Most people leave the treatment office with only slight pinkness or no pinkness at all. Patients can return to work immediately.
How many treatments are required?
Most patients will have between 3-5 treatments; 2-4 weeks apart. Each treatment session typically takes half an hour.
Does the treatment hurt?
No, the ReFirme ST procedure is well tolerated by most patients without any topical anesthetic or other means of analgesia. The treatment tip is chilled so it provides contact cooling to the skin surface for added comfort.
Who should be treated with the ReFirme ST?
All skin colors can be treated with the Refirm ™ ST for laxity, sagginess, loss of elasticity, or textural irregularities. Treatment can be done on face, neck, or certain body areas. Individual patient candidacy should be discussed with your clinician.
Are there any risks to treatment?
ANY medical aesthetic procedure has risk of side effects such as superficial blistering, crusting, and pigmentary changes in the skin. These risks are rare and usually quickly resolved.
