What is Refirme?
The Refirme treatment program utilizes a combination of coblation (biopolar radio frequency) and laser light energies to heat dermal (second layer skin tissue) within targeted treatment areas. This process stimulates collagen (fibrous tissue) production, which assists in the production of firmer skin. This treatment is effective at reducing fine wrinkles and smoothing skin.

The Refirme treatment is appropriate and effective for all skin types, however candidacy is a decision made by the practicing physician and patient during consultation.

How long does it take to see optimum results after a Refirme treatment?
