The Technology Behind the Handpiece
Syneron’s ReFirme ST handpiece utilizes a combination of bi-polar radio frequency and light energy to stimulate collagen growth. RF energy is very controllable and when combined with light energy, creates a very safe and effective means of heating the dermis regardless of skin type. Once, the energy heats the skin (their patented elōs technology) new collagen production begins. In effect collagen production has been kick started and will continue for 6 to 12 months after the initial treatment.
