Skin tightening with the Refirme laser by Syneron is an FDA-approved treatment that uses a combination of infared light and bi-polar radiofrequency technology to help lift and firm sagging skin, thereby reducing wrinkles on the face and body.
Refirme laser treatment can help patients achieve a more youthful appearance and smoother skin, as well as improve face and body contours. Refirme skin tightening works for both men and women with mild to moderate skin laxity and wrinkles and may safely be used on all skin types.
The areas of the face and body that Refirme skin tightening can treat most effectively include the following:
- Jaw line
- Upper arms
Refirme is a non-surgical way to get rid of sagging skin that does not yet require surgical treatment. During treatment the dermal layer of the skin is heated by the Refirme laser, stimulating new collagen growth that produces skin tightening and wrinkle reduction effects over time as skin heals.
No anesthesia is required prior to Refirm laser treatment, and discomfort from the heat generated during treatment is easily minimized via constant cooling from the Refirme treatment tip.
To achieve optimal results, three to five Refirme treatment sessions are typically recommended, spaced three to four weeks apart. When Refirme is combined with VelaShape, this dual-action VelaFirme treatment helps patients achieve simultaneous non-surgical skin tightening and cellulite reduction for maximum body contouring and skin smoothing results.
Refirme laser skin tightening is an extremely gentle, non-invasive procedure, so there is no downtime and normal activities may be resumed immediately after treatment. The skin may appear temporarily red or pink after the procedure but this will fade quickly if it occurs.
Your skin will gradually continue to improve throughout the course of your Refirme treatment series, as each treatment has a cumulative skin tightening effect. Final Refirme results are typically visible three to six months after your last treatment.
