Fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring and textural irregularities got you down? Sublative Skin Resurfacing at Beautiful U Medi Spa may be just what you need. Over time, our skin’s youthful appearance is degraded by the cumulative effects of sun exposure, loss of collagen, environmental damage, and wear and tear, so to speak. Sublative Skin Resurfacing works by creating micro-sized injuries to our skin, inducing the body’s natural healing process to create more collagen. This process plumps out fine lines, fades scarring and stretch marks, and retextures uneven/irregular skin textures. 

Sublative is a non-laser and non-light based treatment that utilizes fractionated bipolar radio frequency technology to place heat energy directly into the dermis where it can produce significant dermal impact with minimal epidermal disruption. This means minimal downtime and minimal discomfort, as opposed to more invasive laser resurfacing.

For optimal results, a series of treatments is recommended and can be tailored to target your specific skin concerns. It’s never been easier to have beautiful skin, call Beautiful U for more information and see if this treatment is right for you.

  • Pinpoint crusting/scabbing will usually form 24-72 hours post treatment and may remain for several days. Do not touch, pick, or scratch these scabs as they should be allowed to shed off naturally.

FAQs

Sublative treatment remodels the scar tissue and stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin for smoother skin. The key benefit of Sublative treatment is that there is a minimal recovery period, compared to alternative treatments that are very aggressive on the skin and require days to weeks of healing.

Sublative treatment uses radio frequency to get deep into the dermis (the second layer of the skin) where it is needed to have the greatest impact on the scar tissue, fine lines and wrinkles.

There is minimal downtime with Sublative™ Skin Resurfacing. It is a straight forward, walk in, walk out treatment. Following treatment your skin will be slightly red and swollen and will have tiny pinhole marks. Redness and swelling typically last for 24-48 hours. The pinhole scabs will fade over the days following treatment and generally take 2-4 weeks to resolve.

Most patients feel a warm, prickly sensation. After treatment a pink or “sunburn” appearance and feeling is common. Topical anaesthetic and cooling cream are often used to reduce discomfort during treatment.

Immediately after the treatment, you may notice tone and texture improvements as a result of increased levels of beneficial collagen and new healthy skin cells which are produced. With the treatment’s dermal impact, mild to moderate wrinkles and superficial skin discolorations are reduced. Full results are often seen 2-4 months post a series of treatments.

Typically, 3 to 5 treatments, 4 to 6 weeks apart are needed depending on the severity of your skin concern. More severe skin concerns may take more than 5 treatments. A complimentary consultation is needed to determine the approximate number of treatments you may need.

Sublative treatment is safe for all skin types.
