Refirme treatments provide an effective way of reducing the appearance of wrinkles without an invasive surgery. It’s suitable for all skin types, so while those with darker skin tones are often advised against certain chemical or laser treatments, Refirme treatments are perfect for any patient.
What Does Refirme Correct?
Refirme is used to stimulate collagen production. As collagen stores increase, the surface of the skin tightens, creating a smoother appearance and texture. The smoother skin causes small wrinkles and lines to disappear and some areas appear to sag less because of the toned, tighter skin. The number of required treatments depends on the severity of the issues you want to correct.
Is it best for Certain Areas Over Others?
The versatility of Refirme treatments is one of the leading reasons to consider the treatment. It’s not only effective at improving facial skin’s tone and texture, but it is also effective at tightening skin on the abdomen, knees, neck, and upper arms.
How Do the Treatments Work?
The FDA-approved Refirme treatments use a blend of radio frequency and light to heat the skin’s tissue. As it is heated, it prompts the skin to boost collagen production. The light is much gentler than the light associated with laser treatments, so patients feel very little discomfort, if any, during a treatment. The number of required treatments depends on the severity of the issues you want to correct. You’ll discuss this with your surgeon during the consultation.
What Are the Risks and Advantages of the Treatment?
Due to the non-invasive nature of Refirme, there are no risks. The radio frequency is delivered to the target area without risk of burning the tissue surrounding the treatment area. In addition, the handheld device used to deliver the energy cools the surface of the skin to keep you comfortable.
You do not need anesthesia with this treatment. Refirme treatments are effective on any skin tone and type, even very fair, delicate skin.
How Much Time Do I Need for Recovery?
Following a Refirme treatment, you can immediately return to your usual activities. You do not need any time to recover from the procedure. Following the treatment, the results appear gradually as collagen stores build up.
