Welcome to Sublative Skin
Imagine a treatment that can treat fine lines and wrinkles, improve the appearance of acne scars, improve textural irregularities all in one sitting. Now, imagine you can achieve all this in a treatment that requires little-to-no downtime and is clinically proven for ALL skin types.
Introduced in the Summer of 2009, Sublative Rejuvenation™ using eMatrix™ is breaking new grounds in the field of cosmetic medicine by offering a NEW treatment light-years ahead of current skin rejuvenation options.
Evolution of Sublative Rejuvenation
For decades laser and light based procedures have been the recommended solution in correcting all kinds of skin imperfections such as wrinkles, scars, discolorations, sun damage etc.
Cosmetic treatments became more socially accepted when skin rejuvenation, a low-level light therapy to non-aggressively treat superficial skin conditions, was introduced in 2001.
This treatment required multiple treatment sessions, and results were gradual–but there was little to no downtime per treatment. Then in 2004 the plastic surgery movement began and people began to demand faster and more comprehensive results, like the kind you get with face lifts.
At this point, fractionated laser therapies were introduced, and although considered non-surgical, these were aggressive treatments that still required weeks of downtime. More importantly, these treatments were not recommended for all skin types due to possible complications.
Today to fill the void between non-aggressive and aggressive while providing a safe and effective treatment for ALL skin types a brand new treatment called Sublative Rejuvenation is introduced in the Summer of 2009.
What is Sublative Rejuvenation?
FDA-cleared Sublative Rejuvenation using eMatrix is truly a unique procedure because it’s the first to combine the results you can get with aggressive treatments–with no downtime. The secret to Sublative Rejuvenation is the energy used and how the energy is delivered through the skin.
How does Sublative Rejuvenation work?
To achieve the best possible results, the energy, whether laser or light, must be delivered below the skin without overheating the top layer of the skin. This has been the challenge with other more aggressive treatments because they work by overheating the top layer of the skin to the point of complete ablation (removal), forcing new skin to develop.
Sublative Rejuvenation uses fractionated bi-polar radio frequency to penetrate through the skin–sending more energy beneath the surface of the skin to really maximize collagen production–while keeping the top layer of the skin intact. This is an important factor in why it’s safe for all skin types.
Benefits of Sublative Rejuvenation
Sublative Rejuvenation is clinically proven to treat fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars and stretch marks, textural irregularities caused by excessive sun exposure.
Little to no downtime post-treatment – patients can return to regular activities following treatment.
Sublative Rejuvenation is the “all-natural” approach to enhancing your youthfulness. Unlike other non-aggressive cosmetic treatments such as Botox, fillers, or chemical peels, Sublative Rejuvenation works from the inside out by stimulating cell regrowth. Thus results with Sublative Rejuvenation last longer and can be further enhanced with yearly maintenance treatments.
A full-face treatment session takes less than 20 minutes.
Proven safe and effective on ALL skin types and degrees of pigmentation.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What makes Sublative Rejuvenation different from other aggressive fractional devices?
A: Patients today desire face-lift-type results, yet do not want the weeks–to even months–of downtime associated with those treatments. Aggressive treatments also come with limitations on the range of skin types that can be treated, due to the high risk of skin discoloration. Although classified as an aggressive treatment, Sublative Rejuvenation is unique because it delivers optimal efficiency with minimal downtime at an affordable price point–and it’s safe for ALL skin types.
Q: How does Sublative Rejuvenation using eMatrix work?
A: To achieve the best possible results when addressing any skin imperfection, the energy, whether it be laser or light, must be delivered below the skin without overheating the top layer of the skin. This has been the challenge with current more aggressive treatments, because they work by overheating the top layer of the skin to the point of complete ablation (removal), forcing new skin to develop.
Sublative Rejuvenation uses fractional bi-polar radio frequency to penetrate through the skin–to allow more energy beneath the surface of the skin, to really maximize collagen production–while keeping the top layer of the skin intact.
Post treatment, you may notice increased levels of beneficial collagen as new healthy skin cells are produced. Mild to moderate wrinkles and superficial skin discolorations are reduced, and the texture of your skin becomes smoother and more elastic.
Q: How many treatments do I need?
A: Each patient’s treatment protocol will vary based on individual needs and results desired. Most patients will receive three treatments, each spaced four to six weeks apart.
Q: When can I expect to see results?
A: Patients will begin to see results after the first treatment and results will continue to improve up to one year post treatment. Because this treatment works to rebuild collagen, there are no limitations on how long the results last. Maintenance treatments are recommended post one year to maintain and further enhance current results.
Q: Does it hurt?
A: Unlike other aggressive fractional treatments, Sublative Rejuvenation with eMatrix is very tolerable. During treatment, many patients feel a warm, prickly sensation. After treatment, a pink or red “sunburn” appearance and feeling is common. Topical anesthetic ointments and cooling can be used to reduce unpleasant sensations during treatment.
Q: Are there any side effects?
A: No clinical side effects have been reported to date. The beauty about Sublative Rejuvenation is its capability to offer significant results to ALL skin types with little to no downtime.
Q: Is everyone a good candidate for Sublative Rejuvenation?
A: Sublative Rejuvenation is the only fractional treatment that can be used on all skin types. Some skin conditions (such as eczema) may prohibit patients from receiving the treatment. Consult your skin care specialist to determine if Sublative Rejuvenation is right for you.
