What is Sublative Rejuvenation?

Sublative Rejuvenation offers patients of all skin types a safe and effective solution in reversing multiple signs of aging. Unlike other treatments that work from the outside-in, Sublative Rejuvenation works from the inside-out - targeting collagen production required for treating fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, and textural irregularities caused by excessive sun exposure and aging.

How does Sublative Rejuvenation work?

Sublative Rejuvenation was developed with patients of all skin types in mind.  Sublative Rejuvenation is fractionated bi-polar radio frequency energy, making it an entirely unique way of treating skin.  Exclusively with this energy, Sublative Rejuvenation keeps the majority of the top layer of the skin intact delivering bulk dermal healing beneath the skin to maximize collagen production.

Is Sublative Rejuvenation right for me?

Unlike traditional aggressive laser treatments, Sublative Rejuvenation produces minimal damage to the surface layer of the skin, making it a safe and effective treatment for all skin types.

When can I expect to see results?

A minimum of 3 to 4 treatments every 4-6 weeks is typically recommended for optimum results.  The total number of required treatment sessions depends on your skin’s condition - a consultation will be necessary to discuss the best Sublative Rejuvenation regimen for you. There may be some immediate

transient improvement after each treatment, but the long-term effect is usually notable 2-4 months after conclusion of treatments.

Does it hurt?

During treatment, many patients feel warm, prickly sensation as the radio frequency energy enters their skin. .  Topical anesthetic ointments will be used to reduce unpleasant feelings during the treatment.

What can I expect after treatment?

After treatment a pink or red “sunburn” appearance and feeling is common.  There may be some swelling and tenderness for a few days after treatment.  Cool compress can be applied and anti-inflammatory medications can be taken.  Most of he initial reaction decreases in about 3 days and can be covered easily with make-up.
