What Is ReFirme Skin Tightening Treatment?

ReFirme Skin Tightening is a non-invasive aesthetic solution to rejuvenate your physical features. This convenient and pain-free treatment involves no incision or scars, and you can easily fit your appointments during a lunch break or any other time that works for you.

This non-invasive treatment combines laser and radio frequency technology to leverage heat to address lax skin, fine lines, wrinkles, and other aging signs. ReFirme Skin Tightening also boosts your body’s natural production of collagen, which smooths your skin and restore lost volume.

If you are looking for a safe anti-aging treatment, ask your dermatologist about ReFirme Skin Tightening.

Am I a Good Candidate for ReFirme Skin Tightening?

This treatment is safe and helpful for people with most skin types. You can typically experience increased results if your skin is sagging because of a reduction in your body’s natural production of collagen and elastin.

ReFirme Skin Tightening can treat the following areas:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Upper arms
  • Abdomen
  • Knees

During your initial consultation, your dermatologist reviews your medical history and performs a thorough physical examination to make sure that you can ReFirme Skin Tightening is a good fit for you and your aesthetic goals.

Your doctor may recommend alternative options if you:

  • Are pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Are currently taking anticoagulants, antibiotics, or medications that increase your photosensitivity
  • Have a skin condition like psoriasis or eczema in the targeted area
  • Got certain cosmetic injectables in the past month
  • Have a heart condition or a peacemaker
  • Have certain medical conditions like cancer, diabetes, or lupus

Your dermatologist will likely recommend that you minimize your sun exposure for the weeks leading up to your treatment.

What Can I Expect During My Treatment?

The first step is to clean your skin in the targeted area. Afterward, your provider applies a gel to it and uses a cooling device to minimize your discomfort. This helps offset the heat from the ReFirme equipment. You also receive protective glasses to wear throughout the treatment.

Your dermatologist then applies controlled pulses of laser and radio frequency energies to heat the area and they move the applicator across your skin to cover the whole zone. The session usually lasts about one hour and may vary depending on whether you receive treatment for a large area or multiple ones.

Do I Need Multiple Appointments?

Most people benefit from an initial series of five treatments spaced one month apart. Your dermatologist can recommend an appropriate maintenance schedule once you have completed these sessions.

Do I Need Recovery Time?

ReFirme Skin Tightening requires zero downtime. You can resume your daily activities right after leaving your dermatologist’s practice and you can even wear makeup right away.

Will I Experience Side Effects?

You may experience a feeling of warmth for a few hours after the session, and some tingling, redness, or swelling for up to several hours after your treatment.

To maximize your results, you should avoid the following for a couple of weeks:

  • Hot temperatures on your face
  • Unprotected or lasting sun exposure
  • Harshly rubbing your face
  • Picking at your scabs

If your dermatologist gives you any additional aftercare instructions, follow them to ensure your safety and comfort.

How Long Will My Results Last?

You can expect to enjoy firmer and more youthful skin during your initial treatment cycle. Your full results can appear between three to six months after completing your treatments. With a healthy lifestyle and consistent quality skin care, you can enjoy your results for a year or two.
