SKIN TIGHTENING IN SANTA BARBARA
Would you like to tone, tighten, and lift your skin without surgery? Evolutions features the two top non-invasive skin tightening procedures on the market today, ReFirme and Titan. You may do either treatment separately, or together in a Total Tightening treatment!
Utilizing superior technology and a protocol developed by Dr. Perkins, Evolutions is pleased to offer Total Tightening treatments. Total Tightening synergistically combines the two top non-invasive skin tightening procedures on the market today, ReFirme and Titan, into a single treatment that maximizes the benefits of both. Each treatment works to tighten existing collagen in your skin as well as stimulate new collagen production, resulting in a firmer, “fresher” look. Usually clients can see a difference after only one procedure, though because results are cumulative when the procedure is done 4-6 weeks apart, a package of four treatments is typically recommended.
Available exclusively at Evolutions Medical Spa, a Total Tightening package is the most effective way to address concerns of skin laxity without needles or surgery!
What is ReFirme™?
ReFirme is a FDA cleared non-invasive Skin Tightening procedure that enables you to comfortably achieve a more youthful, toned and lifted appearance without enduring downtime.
ReFirme is a complete anti-aging solution for targeting those telltale signs of aging, including, jowl and neck laxity, sagginess under the eyes, saggy brow lines, and nasolabial folds. Unlike conventional laser skin tightening treatments that are time and treatment intensive, and often too painful for many patients; ReFirme offers virtually painless and fast treatment for sagging and wrinkled skin.
ReFirme is a safe and effective industry-leading medical aesthetic technology, which has received national media exposure through The Rachel Ray Show, Carnie Wilson feature on Extra, Star Magazine and many more publications and television shows.
ReFirme advantages translate to enhanced comfort, convenience, & satisfaction.
How it works
ReFirme™ features the revolutionary elōs™ combination of Bi-Polar Radio Frequency and Light energies to precisely heat the dermal tissue within the targeted treatment area. The precise heating ensures a safe, effective, fast treatment with no downtime. Fine wrinkles are reduced, noticeable lifting can be observed on sagging skin and the texture of your skin becomes smoother, more luminous and toned. Unlike conventional lasers and IPL’s, ReFirme uses significantly less optical energy, ensuring enhanced safety and a virtually painless procedure.

What is elōs™ Technology?
elōs is the first and only technology that simultaneously harnesses the power of bi-polar radio frequency (RF) and optical energy. Developed by Intense Pulse Light inventor/patent-holder, Dr. Shimon Eckhouse and master physicist, Dr. Michael Kreindel. This revolutionary technology platform effectively overcomes the safety and procedural limitations of intense pulse light (IPL) and conventional lasers.
The elōs Difference:
• Radio Frequency is a highly controllable energy heat source, works synergistically with optical energy
• Enables the use of light energy at a level that is safe for all skin types
• No additional risk to the epidermis
• Precisely targets areas “preheated” by optical energy
• Contact cooling on skin’s surface provides increased comfort and safety

Does it hurt?
The procedure is considered comfortable by the majority of clients. Generally topical numbing cream is not necessary (though it is available for particularly sensitive clients).
What is Titan?
The Titan Procedure™ is a safe, non-surgical process that uses an infrared light source to tighten skin and reverse the signs of aging.
How does the Titan work?
Titan utilizes a safe infrared light to heat the dermis well below the skin’s surface. This heating contracts existing collagen and stimulates new collagen to be produced. During the procedure, the skin’s top surface (epidermis) is protected through continuous cooling with the Titan handpiece.
How is Titan different from ReFirme?
Both Titan and ReFirme work by heating the dermis enough to contract existing collagen and stimulate new collagen production. However, they work in slightly different ways. ReFirme uses two modalities, infrared light and bi-polar radiofrequency, to accomplish this goal
What areas respond best to the Titan procedure?
Clients have been successfully treated on many areas of the body. The most common areas treated are the jawline, under the chin, and the abdomen.
Who can be treated?
Since the Titan procedure heats tissue under the skin’s surface, clients of any skin type or age can be treated. Your clinician can advise you if the Titan is right for you.
How many treatments will I need?
Although a single treatment may produce good results, the effects of the procedure tend to be cumulative and it is quite common for clients to have two to four treatments over a few months. Your clinician will advise you as to the number and frequency of treatments recommended for optimal results (and whether or not you should consider Total Tightening combination therapy).
What happens after the treatment?
Immediately following the treatment, you may notice some redness and mild swelling in the treated area. Both should dissipate within a few hours.
What do treatments feel like?
With each Titan pulse you will feel a brief heating sensation. Some clients are more comfortable taking a mild pain reliever beforehand. Many clients are comfortable without any medication.
