Microfirm for Skin Tightening and stretch mark removal
As we age our skin tends to produce less collagen and elastin, making it harder to maintain a youthful, plumped appearance. Microfirm is a highly effective combination treatment harnessing the power of microneedling and radiofrequency to help boost collagen production in our skin. As a result, it works great both for skin tightening and stretch mark removal.
This amazing microneedling treatment reduces both treatment time and down-time significantly, compared to laser based treatments. The treatment involves a tiny needles that releases bi-polar radiofrequency energy into the problem area, stimulating the rejuvenation of skin-tightening and skin lifting collagen and kick-starting the elastin production process.
Microfirm for skin tightening works great for both face and body. It is a minimally invasive alternative to a surgical facelift and can give you back your youthful glow without the downtime of cosmetic surgery. It is also highly effective at tightening loose skin on the body, especially around the arms, chest, stomach and legs.
Since it can trigger collagen production the treatment benefits are not only restricted to skin rejuvenation but can also help reduce stretch marks. This powerful stretch mark treatment works for both deep and superficial stretch marks as it can dramatically reduce their appearance over a full course of treatments.
Microfirm for skin tightening or stretchmark removal is a minimally invasive treatment and can be slightly uncomfortable especially when treating deep stretch marks. However, if the thought of needles is worrying for you, be reassured that your aesthetic therapist will take excellent care of you. They can apply a numbing cream prior to the treatment and ensure your treatment is safe and comfortable at all times.
All treatments are tailored to the individual and personal experiences and results may vary. We recommend a one to one consultation with our treatment co-ordinators to discuss your treatment options.

Step by Step Microfirm
1 NO OBLIGATORY CONSULTATION
The first step is to book a complimentary consultation with one of our highly experienced EF MEDISPA Coordinators. Your full medical history will be taken and the treatment will be discussed thoroughly. Before you leave the clinic, if you decide to proceed with Microfirm your next appointment with one of our practitioners will be booked.
2 MEET YOUR PRACTITIONER
During your first meeting with the practitioner, you will have the chance to ask any questions you have in mind as well as discuss anticipated results.
3 DURING THE TREATMENT
Microfirm is a minimally invasive micro-needling treatment. A micro-needle smoothly penetrate the surface of the skin and Bipolar Radiofrequency is released into the trouble areas, jumpstarting new collagen and elastin production. Usually there is no need for anaesthetic cream, however since each individual has their own pain threshold, anaesthetic cream can be applied upon request. When treating stretchmarks, the needles will need to move on a deeper level to heal damaged skin, therefore, your therapist will apply anaesthetic cream prior to the treatment to ensure you are feeling comfortable at all times.
4 AFTER THE TREATMENT
The downtime is minimal, it is usually recommended to take the day of treatment off of work. Your practitioner will assess the number of treatments you will require for optimum results, but usually we recommend a course of 4 treatments.
How does it work?
A micro-needle cartridge is placed on the surface of the skin, ensuring the micro-needles comfortably penetrate the surface of the skin. Bipolar RF energy is released into the problem area, stimulating collagen regeneration and the new elastin production process. This is essential for tightening sagging skin.
