For many of us, skin imperfections can impact self-confidence. Often, people considering facial rejuvenation procedures are inhibited by high cost, pain, downtime, and side effects. Syneron Candela’s Sublative™ Radiofrequency skin rejuvenation treatments are an ideal solution! Sublative™ RF effectively targets the skin’s imperfections while offering many advantages including minimal downtime, affordability, comfort, and the fact that it is a non-surgical procedure. Sublative™ RF is proven to reduce acne scarring and effectively treats mild to moderate wrinkles, pigmentation, and textural irregularities.
What Is Sublative™ RF?
Sublative™ RF is neither laser nor light-based. Instead, this one-of-a-kind technology uses fractionated bi-polar radiofrequency (RF). Each pulse precisely delivers the energy via a grid of matrix spots on and just under the skin surface. The treatment accelerates the healing process by causing mild inflammation to trigger the healing cascade. As a result, remodeling of tissue occurs, new healthy skin cells are produced, and new collagen and elastin begins to develop, returning tissue to a healthier and younger state. The rejuvenating effects on the skin include improvement in skin texture, tone, fine lines and wrinkles and diminishing and improving the appearance of acne scars.
Is Sublative™ RF Treatment Right For You?
Sublative™ RF treatments provide the results you desire without the worry of more invasive procedures. Sublative™ RF penetrates more deeply than creams and peels and addresses your skin’s overall tone and texture more effectively than injectables. And while results with more invasive procedures may be more dramatic, few are willing to incur the cost or risk. Sublative™ RF restores a youthful glow and smooths the texture of the skin without the pain and downtime associated with a needle or a knife. It is a perfect treatment for acne scarring, anti-aging, obtaining smoother skin, skin tightening, and evening skin tones, for both men and women.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Many patients see results after 1 treatment; however, for the best results expect at least 3 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart. The total number of sessions varies per person and depends on your skin’s condition.
Pain-Free, Worry-Free Treatment
Most patients tolerate the procedure very well, although some treatment areas are more sensitive than others. Some patients report a warm, prickly sensation as energy enters their skin. To help prevent discomfort, a topical numbing cream will be applied to the area being treated in advance. Treatment time varies but usually can be completed in an hour with little downtime after the procedure. Following treatment, a pink or red flush resembling a minor sunburn is common along with a fine grid stamped on the skin. Side effects are typically mild and may include temporary redness, itching, soreness, swelling, and skin peeling that may last 3-10 days following the procedure. Small scabs will also develop lasting for 5-14 days, however, these are easily covered by makeup, if you choose. The use of cooling gels and cool compresses for several hours after the treatment help reduce discomfort. Normal activities can typically be resumed the next day post-treatment. It is recommended to avoid active skincare products including hydroquinone, glycolic acid, and salicylic acid-containing products until the skin has healed.
