Achieve a More Youthful Look with ReFirme Skin Tightening
posted on 12/30/2010
Sagging skin, wrinkles, fine lines and an uneven skin tone could be adding decades to your appearance and these effects of aging won’t go away on their own. One of the latest innovations in skin rejuvenation is the ReFirme skin tightening procedure, a treatment that helps to tighten the skin on the face and neck to create a more uniform and youthful appearance. Many patients who are noticing the signs of premature aging are good candidates for ReFirme skin tightening. This procedure can be a convenient and affordable alternative to facelift surgery and offers progressive results with minimal downtime.
If you think you might be a good candidate for the ReFirme skin tightening procedure, set up a consultation with a cosmetic surgeon in your area. Your surgeon can explain how ReFirme works and determine whether your skin tone and skin type are a good match for this procedure.
Skin Tightening Benefits of ReFirme
Unlike other skin tightening treatments on the market, the ReFirme skin tightening procedure is powered by Syneron’s exclusive elos technology that uses radiofrequency energy and heat to go deep into the epidermis and causes a tissue contraction. The treatment is relatively comfortable and very fast. It is very different than laser skin resurfacing and other laser treatments that often affect the upper layers of the skin, and there is no risk of burning or scarring. ReFirme can be administered to the following areas of the face and neck:
- Delicate eye area (crow’s feet)
- Nasolabial folds
- Sagging brow lines
- Upper neck area
ReFirme can be administered on all skin types and is suitable for ethnic skin, African American skin and Asian skin.
What to Expect with ReFirme Skin Tightening Procedures
The ReFirme skin tightening procedure can produce a more youthful and uplifted look after just a single treatment and most patients see gradual results as the skin continues to heal itself and collagen begins to regenerate rapidly. Most people notice that their skin appears tighter, firmer and much more toned within a few weeks after their ReFirme session. Wrinkles and lines begin to disappear and skin becomes much more smoother and softer. There is also a noticeable improvement in the texture of the skin.
ReFirme has been cleared for by the FDA for skin tightening via wrinkle treatment, and is a completely non-invasive treatment that promises on downtime. Patients can return to regular activities immediately after their session and can even apply makeup within a few hours after their procedure. There are no drugs to take and most patients can continue using their regular skincare products during the internal healing process.
ReFirme is among the most popular skin tightening and skin rejuvenation procedures available in the United States. If you are looking for a non-surgical and effective solution for getting rid of lines and wrinkles, set up a consultation with a cosmetic surgeon in your area. Your surgeon can discuss the pros and cons of ReFirme and determine whether you are a good candidate for treatment.
