Sublative Skin Resurfacing

Sublative Rejuvenation treatments use radio frequency to deliver an effective but controlled electrical energy to the skin to gently resurface skin while producing Collagen and Elastin to reveal tighter, smoother, and brighter skin. Sublative skin rejuvenation has also been referred to as eMatrix laser skin resurfacing.

What skin concerns does Sublative treat?
Sublative treats fine lines, wrinkles, acne or surgical scars, large pore size, sun damage, age spots, hyperpigmentation, stretch marks, rough patches, and texture problems.

How long does the treatment take? Will it hurt?
Sublative treatments take between 45 minutes to 90 minutes, which includes numbing time. Before the actual treatment, the area will be cleaned, and you will be given a prescription-grade topical anesthetic to numb the area. As a result, Sublative treatments are generally well tolerated and virtually painless.

How long is the recovery time? 
While Sublative is minimally invasive, most patients experience redness and mild swelling immediately after the procedure, which may resolve in a few hours, but could last for several days depending on the client. A client may also notice small crusts developing on the treated skin, which is a normal part of the resurfacing healing process. The crusting usually resolves 1-2 weeks post-treatment.

When will I see the results?
Some clients will notice results in as little as one treatment. However, because Sublative is a radiofrequency treatment, which requires collagen re-building, results tend to be seen at least three months into the treatment course, with best results seen after six months. Even after the completion of treatment, your skin will continue to build collagen. Please note, maintenance treatments may be required to maintain the results long-term, as those results vary depending on the patient, number of treatments, and original condition of the patient’s skin. 

How many treatments do I need?

The number of treatments varies based on each individual client’s needs. However, in general, we typically recommend at least three treatments 4-6 weeks apart.
