How is Refirme Treatment Performed?

Yesteday, I went for a "Photofacial" and the Nurse said they used Refirme. The treatment barely lasted 10 minutes, I received about 20-30 pulses and I was quite disappointed. I wonder, did they scam me?

I had IPL Photofacial in Europe, as well as RF rejuvenation and it was so much different from this. I am waiting to see results, but can 20-30 pulses help at all? They charged me 375$ for this visit. I expected at least 1 pulse per sq inch/cm. Was that how the Refirme tm Photofacial is supposed to be done?

Thanks,
Marina

Unless your treatment was confined to only your upper lip, you were scammed.  Usually Refirme needs 150-200 pulses per area treated.  I would ask for a refund or a real treatment.  The Refirme is not an IPL, and will not help with skin color of reds and browns.  Refirme only helps the laxity of skin.
