Sublative Radiofrequency (RF) Rejuvenation

What is Sublative Radiofrequency?

Sublative rejuvenation minimally affects the skin’s surface layer making it safe and effective for all skin types and colors.

In 3-5 customized treatments, sublative rejuvenation can provide effective anti-wrinkle treatment, acne scar treatment, and overall rejuvenation and toning of the skin requiring only once a year “maintenance” following the initial procedure.

Using an ergonomic applicator, each pulse of the treatment delivers the radiofrequency energy via a grid of matrix spots, inducing a skin injury maximized in these tiny, targeted areas. This radiofrequency energy heats the skin layers enough to induce a healing response from the skin.  The tissue surrounding the treated areas that are not affected by the RF energy accelerates the wound healing response by increasing the production of collagen and elastin. Mild to moderate wrinkles, superficial skin discolorations, and skin lesions are reduced and skin texture becomes more smooth and elastic.

What can I expect during the treatment?

During your visit, your skin is cleansed first and a topical numbing is applied to minimize any discomfort. The laser handpiece is applied directly to the skin and you might feel a warm prickly sensation. After treatment, cold ice packs will be applied to your skin. Treatments can typically be performed in less than one hour. Treatments can also be combined the same day with IPL photofacial for added benefit.

What to expect after treatment?

Sublative rejuvenation offers significant results with little to no downtime.  Immediately after the treatment, a pink or red “sunburn” appearing and feeling is common. In the first two days post-treatment, most patients report mild redness. During the first two to five days post-treatment, many patients also report mild dryness and flaking as the older layers of skin exfoliate. We recommend using a gentle facial cleanser and moisturizer with SPF 45 or greater at all times throughout the treatment course.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments varies depending on the treatment indication and severity. We recommend a minimum of 3 treatments, although more treatments might be required. Treatments should be spaced 4-6 weeks apart.  Patients will begin to see results after the first treatment and will continue to see improvement up to one-year post-treatment.
