Refirme™ is perhaps the best known treatment associated with ELOS, or electrical-optical synergy, technology. It is most commonly used to tighten skin around the eyes, neck, and jaw; but also can prove quite useful on the thighs and buttocks. Refirme is quickly growing in popularity as a skin tightening procedure. Thought it sometimes carries a high price tag, Refirme’s consistent results have made it one of the top light-based skin tightening treatments in the world.
How Does Refirme Work?
As an ELOS procedure, Refirme uses a combination of bi-polar radio frequencies with infrared light energy to heat the deep dermal tissue and promote collagen growth. This natural collagen is critical to skin elasticity and firmness, so treated skin will soon take on a tighter, more youthful appearance.

Not every patient responds to ELOS technology the same way. Prospective Refirme patients should discuss their options with a doctor or skin care specialist, particularly those patients with darker skin pigments or extra sensitive skin.
