Infrared IPL skin tightening ReFirme ST uses infrared light to heat the deep layers of the skin to induce collagen repair and tightening, while protecting the epidermis during treatment by direct contact cooling.
What is the ReFirme ST Procedure?
The ReFirme ST procedure combines safe and effective levels of infrared light and bipolar radiofrequency (electric current) energies to remodel the dermal layer of the skin by stimulating new collagen growth. Both laser and radiofrequency have been used separately for decades in medicine and surgery, but the ST exclusively combines infrared light and bipolar radio-frequency energy for ideal treatment outcomes with a very low risk of side effects and virtually no down-time.
What Can I Expect from ReFirme ST Treatments?
ST can improve skin laxity and sagginess of the face and neck. Skin texture can also be smoothed out by the tightening and firming effect of treatment. This treatment is performed non-ablatively, which means this is a non-invasive procedure. Most people leave the treatment office with only slight pinkness or no pinkness at all. Clients can return to work immediately.
How Many Treatments are Required?
Most clients will have between 3-5 treatments. Sessions are 3-4 weeks apart. Each treatment session typically takes 45 minutes.
Does Treatment Hurt?
No. The ReFirme ST procedure is well tolerated by most clients without any topical anesthetic. The treatment tip is chilled so it provides contact cooling to the skin surface for added comfort.
Who Should be Treated with ReFirme ST?
All skin colors can be treated with the ST for laxity, sagginess, loss of elasticity, or textural irregularities. Treatment can be done on the face or neck. Individual client candidacy should be discussed with your skin therapist.
Are There any Risks to Treatment?
Any medical esthetic procedure has a risk of side effects, such as superficial blistering, crusting and on the skin. These risks are rare and usually quickly resolved.
