Tighten and Tone Sagging Skin with ReFirme
The ReFirme skin tissue tightening treatment is one of the most innovative anti-aging and skin rejuvenation procedures available in the United States. If your skin is becoming loose and is sagging, or you’re noticing wrinkles and lines appearing, you could be a good candidate for the ReFirme skin tightening procedure. ReFirme is designed with the patented elos™ technology to deliver light energy deep into the dermis. It’s a completely painless treatment and there is no downtime involved – many patients book their appointment over a lunch hour or weekend, and can get back to their regular activities immediately afterwards.
If you want to rejuvenate your skin and get rid of lines and wrinkles without surgery, set up a consultation with a cosmetic dermatologist in your area. Your dermatologist can determine whether you would be a good candidate for the ReFirme skin tightening procedure, and will create a customized treatment plan that will help you achieve your goals.
What to Expect with ReFirme Skin Tightening
Each ReFirme skin tightening session lasts about 45 minutes to an hour, and most patients see significant results after a series of two to three treatments. You can book your appointments once every three to four weeks. Some mild side effects include redness and swelling of the skin, but these effects typically subside within a few hours.
The light energy is powerful enough to trigger collagen production which creates a firming effect of the skin tissues. Most people see progressive results for up to two years after their treatment period. Some of the best candidates for the ReFirme skin tightening system are those who have:
- Sagging skin
- Loose or untoned skin, especially around the cheeks and jawline
- Noticeable wrinkles and lines
- Skin that needs a lift or boost because of stress
The most noticeable effects of the ReFirme skin tightening procedure are smoother and firmer skin, noticeable lifting of the skin tissues, and an overall rejuvenated appearance.
How the ReFirme Skin Tightening Procedure Compares to Other Treatments
From a financial standpoint, ReFirme is less expensive than other popular skin tightening treatments including Thermage and Titan. As of 2011, the average cost per treatment for ReFirme skin tightening was $500 to $800 per session, but you may be able to get a discount by booking a package or series of treatments.
Health insurance policies typically do not cover cosmetic treatments like the ReFirme skin tightening procedure, so you will need to take advantage of patient financing offers or pay for the cost of treatment out of pocket.
Unlike other skin rejuvenation and skin tightening treatments, ReFirme is completely painless and is 100 percent non-invasive. You won’t experience any scarring, burning or other skin problems from the treatment.
