Laser Skin Tightening

 

How does Skin Tightening via Wrinkle Treatment with Elos ReFirme™ ST Applicator work?

ReFirme™ ST procedure combines safe and effective levels of infrared light and bipolar radiofrequency energies to remodel the dermal layer of the skin by stimulating new collagen growth. Both laser and radiofrequency have been used separately for decades in medicine and surgery, discount but the ST exclusively combines infrared light and bipolar radio-frequency energy for ideal treatment outcomes with a very low risk of side effects and virtually no down-time.

How is ReFirme™ ST Applicator treatment tolerated by the patient?

The ReFirme™ ST procedure is well tolerated by most patients without any topical anesthetic or other means of analgesia. The treatment tip is chilled so it provides contact cooling to the skin surface for added comfort.

What results can one expect from the ReFirme™ ST Applicator treatment?

ReFirme™ ST can improve skin laxity and sagginess of the face, neck and some body areas such as the abdomen or upper arms. Skin texture can also be smoothed out by the tightening and firming effect of treatment. This treatment is performed non-ablatively, which means this is a non-invasive procedure. Most people leave the treatment office with only slight pinkness or no pinkness at all. Patients can return to normal activities immediately.

How many treatments are required?

Most patients will have between 3-5 treatments.

How often are treatments done?

Treatment sessions are typically 2-4 weeks apart.

Is treatment with the Refirme™ ST Applicator safe?

ANY medical aesthetic procedure has risk of side effects such as superficial blistering, crusting, and pigmentary changes in the skin. These risks are rare and usually quickly resolved.

Who should be treated with the ReFirme™ ST Applicator?

All skin colors can be treated with the ST for laxity, sagginess, loss of elasticity, or textural irregularities. Treatment can be done on face, neck, or certain body areas. Individual patient candidacy should be discussed with your patients.
