Skin rejuvenation can be done in a myriad of ways. The goal of Dr. Becker and the aestheticians at Rinnova is to achieve real rejuvenation in a natural, non-invasive manner. Sublative treatments naturally stimulate your skin’s production of collagen, making it a great option for skin rejuvenation. It utilizes radiofrequency to stimulate collagen production, reducing the appearance of textual irregularities in the skin.
Radiofrequency is an energy that will travel deep into the skin with very little disruption at the surface. Thus, you are able to achieve smoother, tighter skin with very little downtime. Sublative is used to treat the following:
- Sagging (skin laxity)
- Acne Scarring
- Textural Irregularities
What to Expect
At your consultation, your provider will discuss your goals and create a custom treatment plan for your specific needs.
During your treatment, topical numbing cream will be applied to minimize discomfort and you will have about 45 minutes to relax while the numbing cream takes effect. Once your skin has been numbed, the skin is pulsed with the Sublative device. Immediately following your treatment your skin will feel warm, like you have a sunburn. You will experience some swelling and redness for the first 1 to 2 days following your treatment. You will also notice small pinpoint dots on your skin, which will slough off in about 5 days. We recommend allowing yourself at least 3 days downtime, although you may continue regular activities during this time. Your activity level largely depends on how comfortable you feel in public with the spots that will be sloughing off.
