HOW IS THE SUBLATIVE TREATMENT TOLERATED BY PATIENTS?
During treatment, many patients feel a warm, prickly sensation as energy enters their skin. After treatment a pink or red “sunburn” appearance and feeling is also common. Topical anesthetic ointments and cooling are often used to reduce discomfort during treatment.
WHEN CAN PATIENTS EXPECT TO SEE RESULTS?
Post treatment, they may notice tone and texture improvements as a result of increased levels of beneficial collagen and new healthy skin cells which are produced. Typical treatment protocol is 3 - 5 treatments, 4 - 6 weeks apart. The total number of required treatment sessions depends on the skin condition of the patient.
HOW DOES SUBLATIVE™ WORK?
The ergonomic Sublative™ applicator delivers bipolar radio frequency energy via a matrix of 64 electrodes in the disposable applicator tip. The RF energy generates fractional deep dermal heating in the region of the electrode matrix to induce skin injury, thus eliciting a wound healing response. Striae and acne scars as well as mild to moderate wrinkles and superficial skin discoloration are reduced, and skin texture becomes more smooth and elastic.
HOW DOES MOTIF IR TREATMENT WORK?
The combined energies of elōs technology precisely heat the connective tissue within the target treatment area. This stimulates collagen production and produces a younger appearance in the skin. Mild to moderate wrinkles are reduced, and the texture of your skin becomes smoother with a decrease in pore size.
IS THERE ANY DOWNTIME FOLLOWING TREATMENT?
The patients may continue with their daily routine immediately after treatment; however the area will show small red dots that will gradually fade in 2-4 weeks. The patient should use a high-factor sunscreen (at least 30 SPF) and protect the treated area from sunlight during the entire course of treatment and for at least one month after.
HOW DOES HAIR REMOVAL WITH MOTIF WORK?
Hair follicles are precisely targeted and destroyed using the revolutionary elōs combination of bipolar radio frequency and laser energies.
HOW DOES SUBLATIVE™ TREAT STRIAE?
Sublative technology is neither laser nor light based. Instead, this one-of-a-kind technology uses fractionated bi-polar radiofrequency directed to the skin in the form of a matrix. This fractional delivery of RF energy causes micro-epidermal ablative injuries with wider spread dermal coagulation. This initiates a strong wound healing response in the dermal matrix while also minimizing the damage to the epidermis. Less affected tissue surrounding the matrix points may be stimulated by heat which helps accelerate the healing process, leading to a smoother, more elastic appearance of the skin. Striae are reduced and less pronounced, and discoloration is reduced.
HOW DOES SUBLIME™ WORK?
The Sublime™ treatment combines safe and effective levels of infrared light and bipolar radiofrequency energies to remodel the dermal layer of the skin by stimulating new collagen growth. Both laser and radiofrequency have been used separately for decades in medicine and surgery, but the Sublime™ exclusively combines infrared light and bipolar radio-frequency energy for ideal treatment outcomes with a very low risk of side effects and virtually no down-time.
