Yes, you can make a session to prevent them from refreshing the page. BUt you'd need to post code here so that we can specifically help you. Other than that, we can only point you in the right direction.

You should avoid using session to hold information about the state of your website when there is another solution. In this case the better solution is to use:
header("Location: http://www.yoursite.com/");
exit; to redirect to another page after successful form submission.
