ReFirme™ Skin Tightening
Performed at our Northside (Atlanta, GA) & Phipps Plaza locations.
As we age, the effects of the sun and gravity take a toll on our skin causing the breakdown of collagen, the scaffolding behind supple, elastic skin. Signs of aging like lax jowls and neck, bags under the eyes, saggy eyelids, and nasolabial folds can make you look tired and older than you actually are.
ReFirme™ skin tightening system with elōs™ technology helps to firm these areas of loose skin to help renew your look, creating a more youthful, toned, and lifted appearance. By heating the deeper layers of the skin with thermolysis technology, ReFirme™ encourages the body to produce collagen while tightening up slack areas of skin and smoothing fine lines and wrinkles.
