HOW IT WORKS
Sublative rejuvenation is a new kind of safe and effective cosmetic technology that works on virtually all skin tones.
It is neither laser- nor light-based. Instead, it harnesses 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.
Mild to moderate wrinkles and superficial skin discoloration are reduced, and skin texture becomes more smooth and elastic.
Unlike other non-aggressive procedures like Botox, fillers or chemical peels, Sublative works from within. It is based upon the same type of ultrasound used for body scans and tests during pregnancy. Energy from the ultrasound, when used to treat sagging skin, activates the production of new collagen.
Physicians have long used different types of energy to stimulate collagen and tighten the skin. Although considered non-surgical, Titan, Thermage and Fraxel are aggressive procedures that require weeks of downtime. In essence, they overheat the top layer of skin to the point of complete ablation (removal). This forces new skin to develop, but the process is slow and painful. The number of people whose skin visibly responds to the treatment is much lower, as these treatments are not recommended for all skin types due to possible complications.
Sublative produces the same kind of results as aggressive procedures without the pain, downtime, side effects or cost. There is no visible injury to the skin’s outer layers. Focused energy currents are applied to the skin in a matrix, bypassing upper layers of the skin and stimulating the natural production of collagen at the source. This “resets” the body’s regenerative process, which is why results continue to improve over time. Gentle heat is delivered at the underlying connective tissue where the skin joins the muscle—the same layer that is tightened during a conventional facelift. This tissue is gently heated, causing it to contract and eventually lift. As a result, formerly loose skin appears subtly tightened.
Sublative is an intelligent technology. Doctors are able get feedback on how the energy is impacting the underlying layers of skin on a screen during the procedure, so the treatment can be precisely targeted. Radio frequency waves penetrate the skin through small pin holes to stimulate collagen growth from the inside.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Sublative sessions are less than one-hour long. For optimum results, three visits are advised 4-6 weeks apart. Each treatment produces incremental improvements to the gradual formation of collagen and, as a result, gradual improvements to your appearance. The total number of sessions depends on your skin’s condition.
As energy enters the skin, some patients experience a warm, prickly sensation comparable to a rubber band snap, depending on the areas treated and energy settings. A red or pink flush resembling a mild sunburn is common after treatment. Topical anesthetic ointments and cool gels may be used to reduce temporary discomfort during treatment. Most patients report no serious after-effects like crusting or peeling and go back to work as usual following treatment.
