The ReFirme Skin Tightening procedure, via wrinkle reduction, features revolutionary, elos technology that enables you to comfortably achieve a more youthful, tightened and lifted appearance without enduring downtime. We're proud to offer elos is truly the next generation of safe and effective skin tightening technology. Look as young as you feel. Collagen and elastin depletion in the dermis results in loss of the dermal volume, presenting as lines, wrinkles, laxity and sagging in the skin.
The ReFirme ST procedure stimulates long term collagen growth as well as tightening existing collagen fibers, which give an immediate firmed or tightened appearance. Fine lines and superficial wrinkles appear smoothed out and softened as a result of the tissue tightening and contraction from bulk heating. Laxity of the brow, jowls, neck and cheek areas is improved from immediate tissue contracture, and may continue to improve with the delayed collagen repair response.
How does it work?
ELOS Skin Tightening features the revolutionary ELOS combination of Bi-Polar radio frequency and light energies to precisely heat the dermal tissue within the targeted treatment area. The combined energies precisely heat the connective tissue within the targeted treatment area. This stimulates collagen production, simultaneously firming loose skin as it diminishes fine wrinkles. You’ll see and feel you skin becoming tighter, smoother and more elastic.

Please ensure you disclose all medical information to your therapist before starting your treatment.
How often will I need treatments?
The number of treatments required is based on your skin's current condition. Generally a course of four (4) treatments is recommended and top-up treatments may be required to maintain results.
What results should I expect?
Some patients see changes in the fine lines and wrinkles immediately after the treatment, due to transient swelling in the treated area. The swelling will abate after 2 to 5 days, and later be replaced by fresh new collagen, produced by your body to give a more permanent result. The effects of ELOS Skin Tightening from collagen stimuation can continu for up to six months.
How can I enhance my results?
- Ensure the skin is as close to its natural colour as possible before starting treatment.
- Always use a good quality SPF 30+ sun screen to stop unwanted tan during your treatment course.
- Gently exfoliate treatment areas the day before your treatment.
