Treatment costs depend on the body area being treated and the number of treatment sessions. For 2-3 sessions to treat a smaller area, expect average costs around $500, while the costs to treat a larger area in 4-6 sessions may be around $3000.
Am I a candidate for ReFirme body tightening?
Most men and women in reasonably good health are able to undergo ReFirme body tightening. Most candidates are between the ages of 35 and 60 and have noticed some of the signs of aging, such as loose or wrinkled skin. ReFirme is effective on all skin types and colors. ReFirme works best on those who have not tanned before the treatment.
What is ReFirme body tightening?
ReFirm is an FDA-cleared treatment for skin tightening and wrinkle reduction. This non-invasive procedure employs laser energy and specific wavelengths of visible light to gently heat the dermal tissue in the targeted area. This heat energy tightens the skin while stimulating collagen production. Results of ReFirme include smoother skin with fewer wrinkles and fine lines, improvement in skin elasticity and texture, and a more toned appearance. Popular treatment areas using ReFirme body tightening techniques include:
- Excess neck skin
- Bags under the eyes
- sagging brow lines
- Nasolabial folds (from the nose to the corners of the mouth)
- Knee wrinkles
- Excess skin on the upper arms
Anesthesia is not required for this procedure, topical anesthetic is an option if you are worried about pain. During the ReFirme body tightening treatment, the device is pressed against your skin. With built-in cooling technologies in the tip of the device, patients remain comfortable throughout the treatment. Most patients compare the feeling of the treatment to that of a rubber band snapping against the skin.
When the device is turned on, the energy passes through the outer layer of skin to gently heat the deepest layers of skin, increasing collagen production while tightening the overall appearance of the area. Immediately following the procedure, which takes about 30 minutes, patients are able to leave the office.
The results of this procedure will appear gradually over about a month. Most patients schedule 3 to 5 initial treatment sessions, each about a month apart, followed by maintenance treatments every 6 months. The results of ReFirme generally last about two to three years, depending on lifestyle, age, and other variables.
ReFirme Body Tightening Recovery and Healing Steps
ReFirme is a noninvasive procedure requiring no downtime, no sutures, and no bandages. Most patients return to their normal daily routine immediately after leaving the office. For the first several weeks, it is important to avoid sun exposure; wear sunblock over the treated area if sun exposure is unavoidable.
ReFirme Body Tightening Side Effects and Procedure Risks
Following ReFirme body tightening treatment, you can expect mild redness or swelling, which will usually subside within a day. Rarely, blistering, crusting, or temporary pigmentary changes may occur. Because ReFirme is a non-invasive procedure requiring no incisions, it is associated with a much lower risk of complications than surgical procedures.
