Our internal medicne doc down in Scottsdale, Arizona had some info on Elos Technology...ReFirme Tighten and firm skin...no surgery... One of his PAs is certified in the technology...actually it looks like something I would do. Have no idea of the cost, probably a lot. I see that there is a little "gun like thing" that is rubbed over the skin.
What is Elos?

ELOS uses Radiorequency and Laser Light
The idea is that it will tighten your skin. You can read unbiased reviews about those therapies on this website. The costs is usually in the thousands, and most patients (i.e. over 50%) seem to feel it was not worth it.
Nonetheless, the treatment does not involve surgery and has little if any downtime. It may benefit a small number of individuals who are looking for subtle changes. It certainly will not deliver results anywhere near surgery.
ELOS is Electrical Optical Synergy, a marriage of RF and a non-RF source of energy such as broad-band light in an IPL ….SR, SRA, AC, and 700-2000nm in the Refirme, and with the 810nm Diode laser for hair removal, the Matrix IR in the 915 nm range, and LV for vein removal.
