You may not believe in miracles, the miraculous or unexplainable acts of the divine. But, it is undeniable that the results achieved by the ELOS ST nozzle of ReFirme are the closest thing you’ll ever experience to an actual miracle. In the short amount of time it takes to go through a session of ReFirme you will see unprecedented lifting, anti-aging effects, and restoration of a youthful shape to the face - all without surgery or rehabilitation.
How is this possible you ask? ReFirme works like this: the ST applicator eliminates wrinkles by activating and restoring the metabolic processes in all layers of skin and connective tissue, reviving the natural production of collagen and elastin. By applying a modified supply of infrared light from the RF-powered nozzle we are able to increase the elasticity of the skin and align the texture, reducing the depth of wrinkles and minimizes the size of pores. It’s not just initial results that resemble an actual miracle, but the results you will see six months after the completion of the procedures. The lifting that occurs as a result of this treatment is one of the most promising trends in aesthetic, regenerative medicine today.
