Skin Tightening and Lifting - ReFirme™
The ReFirme™ 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 ReFirme™ exclusively combines infrared light and bipolar radio-frequency energy for ideal treatment outcomes with a very low risk of side effects.
Collagen and elastin depletion in the dermis results in loss of dermal volume, presenting as lines, wrinkles, laxity and sagging in the skin. The ReFirme™ procedure stimulates long term collagen growth as well as tightening existing collagen fibres, which gives an immediate firmed or tightened appearance.
ReFirme™ 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 the treatment. Most people leave the treatment office with only slight pinkness or none at all. Patients can return to work immediately.
The treatment is comfortable for most patients and all skin types can be treated. Treatment times are approximately 30 to 60 minutes. Five treatments are required. Treatments are scheduled every four weeks. Patients should expect a 5 to 6 month period to achieve their best results.
If required, patients are encouraged to add FotoFacial to their treatment program. This combined treatment delivers the ultimate results in restoring youthful skin.
All treatments start with a complementary consultation. Contact us to schedule an appointment.
It is important to note that intentional tanning needs to be stopped 4 to 6 weeks prior to treatment.
