Sublative™ Skin resurfacing
The next generation of fractional dermabrasion skin rejuvenation and resurfacing, minimum downtime
Sublative laser skin resurfacing with eMatrix is a unique procedure which uses radio frequency to deliver an effective but controlled ablative and non-ablative fractional treatment for wrinkles, scars, large pores and better texture of the skin. Similar to “Fraxel” it uses radio frequency (electrical) energy, as opposed to laser. The energy waves can go directly into the integument dermal layer with minimal disruption of the epidermis, therefore reducing the redness and irritation associated with the treatment. The non-treated skin around the treated spots accelerates the healing process, and downtime is minimal. The energy stimulates collagen production and allows skin rejuvenation to be achieved. The degree of heating and ablation can be adjusted according to each patient’s need.
Results and benefits
Sublative is effective for improving the appearance of facial skin which include;
• Skin tone, textural irregularities and superficial skin lesions.
• Smoother, fresher, younger-looking skin with improved tone and texture
• Erasing of unwanted brown spots
• Reduced fine lines and wrinkles
• Improved appearance of acne scars and surgical scars
Topical aesthetic cream is applied before the treatment; the patient may feel a warm prickly sensation during treatment, which is usually well-tolerated. The degree of heating and ablation can be adjusted according to each patient’s need. After treatment, slight redness, similar to sunburn, is to be expected, this should resolve within a few days. The downtime is minimal compared to other ablative and non-ablative fractional laser treatment, so most patients can quickly resume their daily activities. The treatment has also been shown to be safe for all skin types.
For optimal results normally 3 treatments are recommended, each being performed 4 to 6 weeks apart.
