Refirme is a skin rejuvenation procedure which uses bipolar energy combined with light energy to reduce and eliminate creases, folds, and wrinkles, while tightening skin and restoring skin to a more youthful appearance.
The Refirme technique involves targeting specific areas of skin tissue within the treatment area, tightening the structures of the skin and increasing the body’s natural production of collagen. As collagen continues to develop during the months after the procedure, your results will continue to improve and your appearance will be more youthful.
Refirme is a popular procedure for facial laxity, as well as for the treatment of loose, sagging skin on the arms, knees, abdomen, neck and jowl areas.
In some cases, an allergy test may be performed to make certain that the individual undergoing treatment is not allergic to the Refirme material.
Prior to treatment, a topical anesthetic may be applied to numb the treatment area. The Refirme device is applied to the skin, directing the energy to the deeper layers of the skin, while protecting the upper layers of skin through a special cooling mechanism. Many patients report a warm sensation during treatment. Most procedures take about 45 minutes to an hour to perform in most patients.
There is no downtime associated with Refirme, and individuals may expect to return to their normal routines immediately following the procedure.
Although initial results are usually visible after just one treatment with Refirme, most patients undergo a series of 3 to 5 sessions, spaced about a month apart, to achieve optimal results of the therapy.
The cost of an entire treatment program with Refirme depends upon the expectations of the individual patient, as well as on the extent of the treatment area and how lax the treated skin is. On average, a single Refirme treatment usually costs about $450.
