Most Common Uses of ReFirme

ReFirme Skin Tightening treatment is a non-invasive alternative to injections and surgeries intended for tightening skin and reducing the appearance of wrinkles and lines. The most common uses of this procedure include:

Reduction of Facial Wrinkles

The most common use of ReFirme is for the reduction of facial wrinkles, particularly around the eyes and on either side of the mouth. Getting wrinkles in these areas are virtually unavoidable during natural aging, but smoking, tanning and illness can also hasten or worsen facial wrinkles. Undergoing this skin tightening treatment that uses bi-polar radio frequency and light will help stimulate the production of collagen in your face, particularly in the areas where you have deep or fine lines. Collagen naturally fills out, tightens and smooths skin.

Reduction of Loose, Sagging Skin

Another common use of this treatment is the reduction in the appearance of loose skin, particularly in the face and neck. However, it can be used on other parts of the body where excessive skin is present as well, such as the upper arms and the abdomen. The treatment can reduce the appearance of jowls and sagging skin caused by age or weight loss or gain. Although the excessive skin will not disappear, it will become tighter and more elastic after treatment.

Diminished Appearance of Uneven Texture

Along with tightening the skin comes the ability to diminish the appearance of uneven texture that's the result of scarring, aging, weight loss or gain, tanning or illness. Most often used on the face and neck, ReFirme can plump up recesses of skin so that the skin becomes more even in texture and imperfections become far less visible, if visible at all.

Improved Skin Laxity

Skin may not be overly loose and sagging to be lax. Even if it's not incredibly obvious, lax skin can unconsciously make you appear older because taut, firm skin is an appearance of youth. Using the bi-polar radio frequency and light skin tightening treatment on your face and neck can improve the overall elasticity of your skin, giving you a more youthful appearance.

Undereye Sagginess Correction

Skin tightening with bi-polar radio frequency and light often targets the undereye area, not just for facial wrinkles and fine lines, but for sagginess. Undereye sagginess may give your eyes the "sunken" or "recessed" look. You may have sagginess under the eyes from birth or you could develop this imperfection due to aging, illness or thyroid problems. Skin tightening can pump up the bags and sunken areas under your eyes, giving you a healthier, brighter appearance.

Fixes Eyebrow Lines

Another sign of aging is sagging eyebrow lines. Just as ReFirme skin tightening can fix the saggy skin under your eyes and on your neck, it can also be applied to the eyebrow area, where a slight lift can give you a much more youthful appearance.

If you think that ReFirme might be an ideal treatment for you, make an appointment with a cosmetic specialist to discuss the procedure. You'll need an average of three to six treatment sessions spaced two to four weeks apart each before you see the ideal results, but you should see some results after each session.
