The Sublative Rejuvenation Procedure
Many women are worried about their skin. Scars, whether from acne, injuries, or other causes, often bother younger women. As they age, many women find wrinkles appearing on the face, and the skin may sag. Most women would like to be rid of these skin problems.
However, some women don’t want to have downtime from work or other activities, and may not want it to be obvious that they had treatment for their skin. For these women, solutions like facial peels and BOTOX® aren’t good choices. Fortunately, there’s another option. At ImageRX®, we’re now offering an innovative new technology called Sublative Rejuvenation.
How Sublative Works
Sublative uses concentrated radio waves. These are delivered to the surface of the skin using a special device. In the area where the radio waves were delivered, the skin is stimulated to produce extra collagen, the protein that makes skin tight and smooth. That means that, with Sublative, your own skin actually produces the healing and reshaping.
Sublative can be used to reduce the following:
- Fine lines
- Skin sagging
- Acne scars
- Other scars
Benefits of Sublative Rejuvenation
The biggest benefit of Sublative is that it’s completely non-invasive. No needles, and no surgical instruments. That makes it a great choice for those women who don’t want to use injectables (like dermal fillers or BOTOX®) because of the invasiveness and pain of needles, and don’t want a facelift because of the downtime, and the pain and scarring of surgical incisions.
Sublative treatment causes much less damage to the surface of the skin than other treatments, such as laser skin resurfacing, that ablate or remove the surface layer of skin in order to stimulate new skin to grow. Instead, the treatment is directed deeper under the skin, where collagen is produced, for better results with less surface skin damage.
Can Everyone Have Sublative?
Almost everyone can enjoy the benefits of Sublative, but there are a few conditions that would prevent you from having Sublative. These include:
- Having a pacemaker or other metal medical device, which could be affected by the radio waves
- Use of Accutane in the last six months (this affects the skin, so that it may not heal as well from Sublative)
- Injection of dermal fillers within the last month
Those who have a disease that affects healing, including autoimmune diseases and diabetes, should discuss their skin care options with a qualified cosmetic dermatologist, to determine whether Sublative Rejuvenation would be a good option for you.
What’s it Like to Have Sublative?
Before you commit to having the procedure, you’ll have a chance to meet with our trained staff members and ask any questions you may have. If you decide to proceed, then topical anesthetic will be applied to your skin in the area to be treated. This is a cream, which is left on for about 15 to 20 minutes.
After the cream is removed, your treatment will begin. The technician will apply the eMatrix (the Sublative device) to your skin briefly. The special treatment head delivers many shots of radiofrequency energy to the area, in a grid-like pattern. The technician may apply the eMatrix to your skin several times, in order to cover the treatment area, and may adjust the depth so that it feels more intense in some spots than in others. You may feel a sensation like a zap, which is usually not painful although it may be a bit uncomfortable.
After your treatment, there will be red dots in the same grid-like pattern on your skin. Over the course of a few days, the dots will crust over, and then the crusts will fall off. It’s important not to pick at them; just let them fall off on their own. You can cover them with makeup if you desire. You will then see results develop over the course of a few weeks. Usually, 4 to 6 sessions are needed to get the full effect.
