Sublative Skin Rejuvenation in Latham, NY
What is Sublative Skin Rejuvenation?
Sublative skin rejuvenation is a noninvasive, safe, and effective treatment for addressing many signs of aging on all skin types. This treatment can treat mild to moderate wrinkles, stretch marks, scars, acne and acne scars, sun damage, lax skin, and texture irregularities for a more youthful complexion.
Who is a Candidate?
Individuals who have noticed signs of aging and would like to achieve a more youthful complexion can often benefit from this treatment. Ideal candidates will have good skin elasticity, be healthy, and have a positive outlook on their procedure. A consultation with Dr. Chao or his medical esthetician is the best way to determine if this procedure is right for you.
The Sublative Skin Rejuvenation Procedure
The Sublative skin rejuvenation procedure does not use lasers; rather, it uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to rejuvenate the skin. This RF energy provides controlled heating to the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating collagen and elastin production and the production of healthy cells.
During treatment, patients may experience a warm, prickly sensation, though this is not described as painful. Topical anesthetic is used to help ensure a comfortable treatment session.
Results and Recovery
After treatment, patients’ skin may appear pink or “sunburned”, but this should resolve with time. Most patients require 3-5 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart to see optimal results, however, the total number of treatments needed depends on desired results. Collagen production will continue for up to six months after treatment, so some patients can maintain results with just two treatments a year! Individual results may vary.
