The ReFirme ST Skin Tightening system was developed by Syneron to reduce wrinkles and tighten skin in the face and neck. The goal is to create a more youthful appearance through the removal of unsightly wrinkles and sagging skin.
The Refirme ST procedure utilizes a combination of infra-red and electrical energy to improve skin texture virtually painlessly and almost instantaneously. The skin-tightening effects of ReFirme ST work based on the fact that when skin is heated in medium to deep degrees, the collagen contraction and production that results continue over at four to six month period. After one treatment the results will being to show though the full effect is an improvement that will continue over time.
ReFirme ST can improve the appearance of many parts of the body, namely those that influence how old a person looks and thus allowing people to look their age, or appear younger depending on the desired outcome. The most common areas for treatment include the jowls, cheeks, neck, forehead, eyes, brow line, and nasolabial folds.
Although the treatment is effective it cannot replace surgical procedures. Some people will not benefit from ReFirme because their conditions are too advanced for heat treatments to significantly improve the appearance. A consultation with a qualified physician will allow prospective patients to determine whether or not ReFirme can help them achieve their desired results. People who need mild to moderate changes and who recognize the limitations of ReFirme will receive the most benefit from this procedure option.
How does ReFirme ST work?
Used in conjunction with Syneron's eLight and eMax technologies, ReFirme ST brings forth a combined effort delivering electric current, infrared light energy, and a facial cooling system. The cooling system enables a deeper level of skin treatment while still protecting the tissues from over heating and damage. In addition to greater skin protection and a more dramatic improvement, the combination of processes also results in a faster treatment.
Recovery and Risks
A ReFirme procedure requires no sedation and the entire process can be completed in less than 45 minutes. Patients can return to daily activities immediately. This is a wonderful advantage to the ReFirme treatment as patients do not have to designate large amounts of time to the procedure.
The risks are very low and can be assessed during your initial consultation with the presiding physician. You can discuss realistic expectations and ask any questions that might influence your decision to undergo the procedure.
