HOW DOES ReFirme® SKIN TIGHTENING WORK?
The ReFirme® procedure combines safe and effective levels of infrared light and bipolar radiofrequency energies to stimulate new collagen growth under the surface of the skin (dermal layer).
The ReFirme® laser precisely heats the dermal tissue within the target treatment area. This treatment stimulates collagen production and produces a firming effect and results in smoother, luminous and noticeably lifted skin.
IS ReFirme® SKIN TIGHTENING SAFE?
Both laser and radiofrequency have been FDA approved and used separately for decades in medicine and surgery. The ReFirme® procedure exclusively combines these tremendously effective infrared light and bipolar radio-frequency energies for safe and ideal treatment outcomes and virtually no down-time.
IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME?
This treatment is performed non-ablatively, which means this is a non-invasive procedure. Dr. Christine performs this simple, treatment in about a half an hour. Most patients experience only a slight pinkness to the skin or no pinkness at all. Patients may return to normal activities immediately.
DOES IT HURT?
ReFirme® skin tightening is a gentle, comfortable treatment requiring no downtime. Many patients return to normal activities immediately after the treatment. Cooling of the skin’s surface provides enhanced safety and additional comfort.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Most of Dr. Christine’s patients will have between 3-5 sessions; typically 3-4 weeks apart. The best results are seen 3-6 months post completion with a maintenance treatment once every 6 months.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
The majority of patients see a gradual improvement during and post treatments. Dr. Christine will devise a treatment plan that would be appropriate for your skin’s condition. Immediate reduction in fine wrinkles and lifting is achieved during your procedure.
HOW MUCH WILL A TREATMENT COST?
Every patient is unique, with individual desired cosmetic outcomes. Dr. Christine provides complementary consultation to discuss the patients goals and formulate a treatment plan.
