About Sublative Skin Resurfacing
Sublative Skin Resurfacing is a skin treatment that works to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production, to reveal smoother, clearer and more even skin. At Elegance, we use the advanced Elos Plus system from Syneron Candela to administer our Sublative treatments. Sublative technology reaches deep into the dermis and encourages the production of collagen and elastin—essentially resurfacing the skin from the inside out. A great bonus to Sublative resurfacing is that it does not disrupt the epidermal layer of skin, requiring less downtime!
What is Sublative Skin Resurfacing?
Sublative Skin Resurfacing is a non-invasive skin treatment that works to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production, to reveal smoother, clearer and more even skin. We carry the advanced Elos Plus system from Syneron Candela to administer our Sublative treatments. Using only the power of fractionated bi-polar radio frequency (RF), Sublative technology is aimed deep into the dermis and encourages the production of collagen and elastin—essentially resurfacing the skin from the inside out. Unlike other skin resurfacing practices that use laser or light therapy, which can yield weeks of downtime and discomfort, Sublative does not disrupt the epidermal layer of skin, allowing you to get back to your regular daily schedule immediately post-treatment.
Bi-polar RF technology is administered to the skin through a machine tip which includes multi-electrode pins. These pins create a grid like pattern when applied across the skin, meaning only a certain section of the skin is actually being treated at one time. The skin left untreated around these pin dots is what will produce new collagen to “heal” the skin penetrated by the RF energy.
Each patient is given a unique tip for their treatment to ensure the most sterile/risk-free environment for the patient.
How long does a Sublative facial take?
For the full face, your Sublative facial will take approx. 30 minutes.
Will I see results immediately?
The skin cycle is about 30 days in duration and so, you will notice the peak results after about 30 days post-treatment. Though there will be some differences seen after the first treatment, the most dramatic results are typically seen after the second or third treatment depending on the severity of the targeted issue.
Can I Continue to Use Facial Care Products After?
Absolutely. There is nothing preventing you from using your usual moisturizers and cleansers. If you are on any skin-sensitizing medications such as Retinol or Accutane, you may not be eligible for treatment at this time. We discuss this at your consultation prior to treatment to ensure that the health of your skin is being protected. You will be given instruction to use an SPF in the weeks following your sublative facial.
