Sublative Rejuvenation is a safe and effective cosmetic technology that works on virtually all skin tones. It is neither laser nor light-based. Instead, SUBLATIVE™ uses the power of fractionated bi-polar radiofrequency (also known as gentle energy currents) to deeply penetrate the skin and stimulate collagen production beneath the surface, while keeping the outer layer of skin intact.
RF energy is precisely directed to the skin in the form of a matrix. Healthy skin around the dots accelerates the healing process of the skin. Post treatment, new collagen and healthy skin cells are produced. Mild to moderate wrinkles and superficial skin discolorations are reduced. The texture of your skin becomes more smooth and elastic.
Sublative is an intelligent technology. While your doctor is delivering energy currents into your skin, he/she is able get feedback on how the energy is impacting the underlying layers of skin on a screen. This ensures that the treatment can be precisely targeted. During this hour long treatment, radio frequency waves penetrate the skin through small pin holes to stimulate collagen growth from the inside. Your doctor can explain what to expect during a consultation.
During treatment, many patients feel a warm, prickly sensation as energy enters their skin. After treatment a pink or red “sunburn” appearance and feeling is also common. Topical anesthetic ointments and cooling are often used to reduce discomfort during treatment.
Most patients report remarkable, immediate results. Post treatment, they may notice tone and texture improvements as a result of increased levels of beneficial collagen and new healthy skin cells which are produced. With the treatment’s dermal impact, mild to moderate wrinkles and superficial skin discolorations are reduced. Typical treatment protocol is 3 treatments, 4 – 6 weeks apart. The total number of required treatment sessions depends on the skin condition of the patient.
A consultation with your doctor will help determine if a Sublative treatment is the right option for you. Typically patients with mild to moderate wrinkles and skin discoloration are good candidates.
