Aging takes a toll on our skin in many ways, but one of the most noticeable signs of aging is skin that has become loose and saggy. The firmness and elasticity of younger skin is caused by a specific protein called collagen. As we age our bodies naturally produce less collagen, which makes the skin less able to resist gravity and to hold firm despite changes in weight and facial structure. The Refirme™ Skin Tightening System uses a combination of infrared light and radio frequency energy to help the body produce more collagen in the treatment area. This creates natural yet rejuvenated results under the eyes, on the forehead, and around the nose and mouth. As a gentle treatment that requires no downtime, Refirme™ generally requires two to five treatments for optimal results, although treatment plans can vary based on each patient’s needs.
Photofacial Skin Rejuvenation
Photofacial skin rejuvenation at Abraham Medical Cosmetics in Snellville, GA (outside of Atlanta) uses intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy to diminish fine lines, pigmentation issues, acne scars and many other troubling skin conditions without the downtime of laser skin resurfacing. IPL therapy is similar to laser therapy, but instead of emitting one wavelength per pulse like laser, it delivers multiple wavelengths to penetrate deeper. Even though you’ll notice results after just one IPL treatment, we recommend a treatment regimen of four to six treatments to achieve optimal results. Expect to see an even complexion with fewer fine lines and wrinkles after Photofacial skin rejuvenation.
Refirme™ Skin Tightening
If you’re looking for a more youthful appearance without downtime, the Refirme™ Skin Tightening System offered at Abraham Medical in Snellville, GA (outside of Atlanta in Gwinnett county) may be a perfect solution to meet your needs. The system’s technology combines infrared light and radio frequency energy to heat the skin’s surface and stimulate the body’s natural collagen production. Collagen is a protein that’s naturally found within youthful skin that provides elasticity. Collagen production naturally slows with age, but can increase with stimulation. Refirme™ tightens under-eye bags, sagging brow skin, and wrinkles around the nose and mouth. Although you will see results after your first treatment session, we recommend two to five treatment sessions spaced three to four weeks apart depending on your specific needs for optimal results.
