Sublative Skin Resurfacing
Sublative™ RF Fractional Rejuvenation - The Next Generation of Skin Resurfacing
Sublative Rejuvenation is a non-laser and non-light based treatment that utilizes RF sublation-fractionated bipolar radio frequency technology-to place the heat, energy effectively into the dermis where it can produce significant dermal impact with minimal epidermal disruption.
What is Sublative Rejuvenation?
Sublative Skin Resurfacing is an FDA-cleared treatment that gently resurfaces the skin over 4 to 5 treatments. It tightens surface loose skin, improves skin texture and reduces the appearance of mild to moderate wrinkles, acne scarring and abdominal stretch marks. It also tightens pores and brightens the skin.
Sublative Rejuvenation is truly unique because it’s the newest resurfacing laser treatment that achieves results one gets with more aggressive laser treatments, while avoiding the lengthy downtime associated with those more aggressive ie.”ablative” procedures.
The secret to Sublative Rejuvenation is the “Radio Frequency” energy used and how that energy is delivered. During treatment, intense heat is generated under the surface of the skin without disrupting the skin’s surface in the process; (downtime is approximately 48 hours with mild roughness remaining for 3 to 5 days—make-up can be applied after the first 48 hours). Sublative Rejuvenation stimulates collagen and elastin production in the deep layers of the skin resulting in a tighter, smoother, more refined and brighter appearance to areas treated. Results continue over 3-5 months after the final treatment and can be maintained annually.
How does Sublative Rejuvenation work?
To achieve the best possible results, the energy, whether laser or light, must be delivered below the skin without overheating the top layer of the skin. This has been the challenge with other more aggressive treatments because they work by overheating the top layer of the skin to the point of complete ablation (removal), forcing new skin to develop.
Sublative Rejuvenation uses fractionated bi-polar radio frequency to penetrate through the skin, sending more energy beneath the surface of the skin to maximize collagen production, all while keeping the top layer of the skin intact. This is an important factor in why it’s safe for all skin types, and requires less downtime than other treatment methods for the skin to heal.
Sublative Rejuvenation for Acne Scarring
Sublative Rejuvenation offers an alternative to laser treatments to reduce the appearance of acne scarring. Typically only 48 hours of mild downtime is required after the procedure. Since the treatment uses radiofrequency instead of light, the chances of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, a skin discoloration that can occur in patients with darker skin, are greatly reduced. Patients of all skin types can use sublative rejuvenation as an alternative to laser treatments for skin rejuvenation and acne scarring.
Benefits of Sublative Rejuvenation for Anti-Aging and Acne Scarring Treatments
- Sublative Rejuvenation is clinically proven to treat fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring, stretch marks, and textural irregularities caused by excessive sun exposure.
- Only 48 hours or less of mild downtime – patients can usually return to regular activities following treatment.
- Sublative Rejuvenation is the “all-natural” approach to enhancing your youthfulness. Unlike other non-aggressive cosmetic treatments such as Botox, fillers, or chemical peels, Sublative Rejuvenation works from the inside out by stimulating cell regrowth. Thus results with Sublative Rejuvenation last longer and can be further enhanced with yearly maintenance treatments.
- A full-face treatment session takes less than 30 minutes.
- Proven safe and effective on ALL skin types and degrees of pigmentation.
FAQs: Sublative Rejuvenation using eMatrix
Q: What makes Sublative Rejuvenation different from other aggressive fractional devices?
A: Patients today desire face-lift-type results, yet do not want the weeks-to even months- of downtime associated with those treatments. Aggressive treatments also come with limitations on the range of skin types that can be treated, due to the high risk of skin discoloration. Although classified as an aggressive treatment, Sublative Rejuvenation is unique because it delivers optimal efficiency with minimal downtime at an affordable price point, and it's safe for ALL skin types.
Q: How does Sublative Rejuvenation work?
A: To achieve the best possible results when addressing any skin imperfection, the energy, whether it be laser or light, must be delivered below the skin without overheating the top layer of the skin. This has been the challenge with current more aggressive treatments, because they work by overheating the top layer of the skin to the point of complete ablation (removal), forcing new skin to develop. Sublative Rejuvenation uses fractional bi-polar radio frequency to penetrate through the skin--to allow more energy beneath the surface of the skin, to really maximize collagen production--while keeping the top layer of the skin intact. Post treatment, you may notice increased levels of beneficial collagen as new healthy skin cells are produced. Mild to moderate wrinkles and superficial skin discolorations are reduced, and the texture of your skin becomes smoother and more elastic.
Q: How many treatments do I need?
A: Each patient's treatment protocol will vary based on individual needs and results desired. Most patients will receive three treatments, each spaced four to six weeks apart.
Q: When can I expect to see results?
A: Patients will begin to see results after the first treatment and results will continue to improve up to one year post treatment. Because this treatment works to rebuild collagen, there are no limitations on how long the results last. Maintenance treatments are recommended post one year to maintain and further enhance current results.
Q: Does it hurt?
A: Unlike other aggressive fractional treatments, Sublative Rejuvenation with eMatrix is very tolerable. During treatment, many patients feel a warm, prickly sensation. After treatment, a pink or red "sunburn" appearance and feeling is common. Topical anesthetic ointments and cooling can be used to reduce unpleasant sensations during treatment.
Q: Are there any side effects?
A: No clinical side effects have been reported to date. The beauty about Sublative Rejuvenation is its capability to offer significant results to ALL skin types with little to no downtime.
Q: Is everyone a good candidate for Sublative Rejuvenation?
A: Sublative Rejuvenation is the only fractional treatment that can be used on all skin types. Some skin conditions (such as eczema) may prohibit patients from receiving the treatment. Consult your skin care specialist to determine if Sublative Rejuvenation is right for you.
Q: How much does Sublative Rejuvenation cost?
A: This depends on the area treated. A Full Face is $500/session, Full Neck $500/session. A series of 3 session (either full face or neck) is $1200. Stretch Marks will be evaluated during a free consultation.
