Sublime Skin Tightening in Latham, NY
What is Sublime?
Sublime is a noninvasive skin tightening treatment to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and tighten areas with mild skin laxity. Sublime can be used on multiple areas, including the neck, jawline, cheeks, and upper face. It is also safe to use on all skin types and is often combined with other skin rejuvenation treatments to further improve results.
Sublime offers many benefits, including:
- Tightens skin for a more youthful look
- Creates softer, smoother skin in the treatment areas
- No downtime
- Safe and effective
Who is a Candidate?
Individuals with loose, sagging, or wrinkled skin on their jowls, necks, cheeks, or forehead may be able to benefit from the Sublime treatment. However, those who are pregnant or nursing or have been on Accutane within the past six months should not undergo this treatment. A consultation is the best way to determine if this treatment is right for you.
During treatment, eye goggles are used to protect the patient’s eyes and a cool gel will be applied to protect the patient’s skin. Sublime uses radiofrequency and infrared technology to heat the deeper layers of skin and stimulate collagen production, resulting in a more youthful-looking skin. Slight pressure may be felt during treatment, as well as a “hot pinch” towards the end of each pulse. While mild discomfort may occur, treatment should not be painful.
Multiple treatments are required to see the best results. Treatments are spaced a month apart to allow the skin to fully heal. Most individuals also undergo maintenance treatment every 3-6 months.
It is also important to note that Sublime cannot be performed if dermal fillers have been injected into the treatment areas within four weeks prior to treatment.
Recovery and Results
Following treatment, mild redness and swelling may occur, which may last a few days. The treatment areas may also become temporarily lighter in color, which is known as blanching. Blanching usually resolves within 24 hours of the treatment. Makeup can be applied immediately after treatment, and there is little to no downtime needed.
