WHAT IS SUBLATIVE SKIN RESURFACING?

Sublative rejuvenation is a skin resurfacing treatment that uses radio-frequency (RF) technology to target a range of skin concerns.

Sublative uses advanced technology to stimulate collagen growth and promote healthy new skin formation. This boost in collagen helps to improve the skin’s tone and texture for a smooth complexion.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT IMPROVEMENTS WILL I NOTICE?

Sublative Rejuvenation is perfect for anyone who wants to improve the texture of their skin. As collagen levels increase you can expect to see improvements in the following areas:

  • Plumping of fine lines, wrinkles and crepey skin texture
  • Improvement in acne scarring
  • Refined appearance of pores
  • Hydration for a dewy look
  • A smoother and more youthful complexion overall

HOW DOES SUBLATIVE SKIN RESURFACING WORK?

The Sublative treatment delivers RF energy into the skin in the shape of a square grid. The skin then goes into a healing process – promoting healthy skin cell and collagen production. These healthy new skin cells then help to repair areas of skin where collagen is lacking. Therefore resulting in a smoother, more refined skin texture.

WHO CAN HAVE THE SUBLATIVE TREATMENT?

Sublative Rejuvenation is a safe and effective solution for most skin types and age groups. We have clients in their 20s who suffer from acne scarring and clients in their 30s noticing their first signs of aging. We also have clients in their 50’s who want to improve sun damaged, textured and lined skin. Sublatvie skin resurfacing achieves visible results for patients with:

  • Acne scarring / pitting
  • Large or open pores
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Cross hatched or crepey skin texture
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Sun damaged skin
  • Dull skin tone
  • Superficial pigmentation

WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?

The face, neck and chest are the most popular treatment areas, but other areas can benefit from treatment too.

HOW LONG DOES THE TREATMENT TAKE?

Treatment time depends on the size of the treatment area. However, most treatments will take less than an hour.

WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT FEEL LIKE?

During treatment, many patients feel a warm, prickly sensation as the RF energy enters the skin. We also apply a numbing gel before your treatment to reduce any unpleasant feelings.

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?

Your Artisan clinician can recommend a treatment plan for you based on your skin’s condition and your desired results. However 2-3 treatments are often enough to see a nice improvement. Most patients begin to see changes in their skin within 4 to 6 weeks after their first session.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE TREATMENT?

Your skin will appear red and feel hot for the first few hours after treatment. A pink or red “sunburn” appearance is common for the first few days as well as minor swelling.

As your skin begins to heal a slight scabbing will occur in tiny dots over the treatment area. This scabbing can take around 5 days to come away as your skin’s cells turn over. You can wear makeup 48 hours after your treatment.
