Refirme skin tightening and wrinkle reduction is a treatment women are loving. And what's not to love, a way to achieve a more youthful complexion without having to take time away from your normal activities to recover? A relatively new procedure known as Refirme can allow you to do just that.
This revolutionary skin rejuvenation procedure uses light energy combined with electrical current to firm and tighten aging skin giving it a more youthful appearance.
Refirme skin tightening can be a convenient and painless alternative to traditional face lift surgery for rejuvenating tired, sagging skin with fine lines and wrinkles.
Refirme uses bipolar conducted electric current combined with light energy to heat up the underlying layer of skin tissue known as the dermis.
When the dermis is exposed to this unique combination of electrical and light therapy provided by the Refirme procedure, it stimulates collagen production by the cells within the dermal layer.
Because collagen forms the support structure of healthy, youthful skin, the skin takes on a firmer, more youthful appearance after the procedure. You may also notice the texture of your skin improves and fine lines become less visible.
You’re a successful candidate for Refirme if you have loose, lax skin and wrinkles. It’s a safe and gentle procedure that’s ideal for all skin types.
The Refirme procedure is completely pain-free for most patients and doesn't require the use of anesthesia of any type. During the procedure which takes approximately forty-five minutes, a combination of electrical and light energy are applied to the designated skin surfaces to allow heating of the underlying dermis.
During this time, you shouldn't experience any significant discomfort although some patients describe a sensation of warmth. Some patients actually find the procedure to be relaxing and have been known to fall asleep during treatment.
At the conclusion of the procedure, you may notice a slight improvement in the texture and appearance of your skin which will become more pronounced over a three week period as new collagen support tissue is produced. To get skin firming and rejuvenation, three to five treatments may be required.
No, you should be able to return to your regular activities after the Refirme. You may notice a slight rosy glow to the skin immediately after the procedure or you may notice no skin color change at all.
Refirme is a safe and effective way to improve the firmness and texture of aging skin. There’s no need to take time away from normal activities for recovery and there’s no need for anesthesia which carries risks of its own.
Patient satisfaction with this procedure is quite high and most clients are pleased to be able to use this as an alternative to more invasive skin rejuvenation procedures. The lack of downtime makes this procedure quick and convenient.
The Refirme procedure is usually well tolerated with minimal risk. In rare cases, there can be superficial swelling, redness, or blistering of the skin which resolves quickly over a period of several days.
Generally a series of three to five sessions with Refirme are needed to get the best results in terms of skin firmness, reduction in wrinkling, and improvements in skin texture. These sessions are usually scheduled three to four weeks apart. Once the sessions are completed, the effects can last up to two years.
Refirme is a safe and effective procedure for improving the skin firmness and texture with no down time. If you’re ready to have younger looking skin without the risks and expense of surgery, this procedure may be for you. Talk to your doctor and find out how this procedure can help you achieve your goal of beautiful, more youthful looking skin.
