How Does ReFirme Work?
REFIRME uses the power of Elos (electro-optical synergy), the only technology that simultaneously harnesses the power of light (optical energy) and radio frequency (electrical energy). The optical energy is used to target and pre-heat the area to be treated. The electrical energy is directed to the target area under the skin (the dermis) without affecting the outer layer of the skin (the epidermis). The combination of the two energies (the “synergy”) ensures a safe and effective treatment.
How long is the Treatment Program?
Each treatment lasts about 45 minutes. Most people require 4-6 sessions at 3-4 week intervals. The improvement will be gradual, but steady.
How Do the Treatments Feel?
Most people experience no discomfort during the treatment and there is no recovery time once the procedure has been completed. Most people have no side effects from the treatment although some people notice localized reddening for a short period of time.
What are the Results of ReFirme?
Lift years from your face without surgery. The treatment of the skin with infrared light and radio frequency stimulates the production of collagen and promotes the tightening of the skin. The texture of the skin becomes smoother, more luminous and toned. Fine wrinkles are reduced and sagging skin is lifted.
Are the Treatments Safe and Effective?
Yes. The REFIRME procedure combines safe levels of infrared light with radio frequency. The outer layers of the skin (the epidermis) are pre-cooled with the hand piece on the machine and the lower layers (the dermis) are pre-heated with infrared light. As a result, the radio frequency is directed to the target area beneath the skin without affecting the surrounding tissue.There have been many clinical trials to test the effectiveness of Elos technology (electro-optical synergy). In a recent study, Dr. Robert Sleightholm, Director of Surgery at Brampton Cosmetic Clinic (Ontario, Canada) and Dr. Hugh Bartholomeusz, Greenslopes Plastic Surgery Clinic (Queensland, Australia) noted that there is an increased demand for “non-invasive procedures for skin tightening and wrinkle reduction”. As a result of their clinical study, they reported that most patients noticed a visible improvement in wrinkles and felt a tightening of the skin after the first treatment. The firmness reported by both the patient and the physician was still increasing after three months. They concluded that the use of REFIRME technology is “a safe and effective treatment modality for improving the appearance of skin texture and laxity”.
