Sublative RF Resurfacing Laser

Syneron Candela has created the Sublative to be the most revolutionary and effective resurfacing laser treatment available.

With Sublative RF we can

  • Improve fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduce the appearance of large pore size
  • Smooth acne scarring or other scarring on the face or body
  • Improve textural irregularities
  • Improve the appearance of stretch marks

The Sublative is a fractionated bipolar radiofrequency that places heat effectively into the upper dermis where it can produce a significant increase in collagen and elastin production with minimal epidermal disruption and limited downtime.

Frequently Asked Questions about Sublative RF

How does Sublative work?

RF (radio frequency) energy is precisely directed into the skin in the form of a grid or dots. Healthy skin around the dots accelerates the healing process and collagen stimulation. Post treatment, new collagen and healthy skin cells are produced to reveal smoother, brighter, tighter and healthier skin.

Is there any downtime?

You should expect significant redness immediately following the treatment. This redness will typically last 1-2 days along with the potential for slight swelling. The “grid” marks from the laser hand piece can be seen on your skin for 3-4 days after treatment, but can be covered with makeup.

How does Sublative compare to other resurfacing laser treatments?

Other resurfacing treatments can be ablative requiring weeks of downtime and redness. Because the Sublative is a fractionated radiofrequency energy, your epidermis is left in tact and the downtime is significantly less. The Sublative is safe on mostly all skin colors and types with little to no risk of hyperpigmentation, scarring or downtime.

Can Sublative treat my stretch marks?

Yes! Sublative is one of very few treatments proven to show significant improvement in the treatment of stretch marks.

When can I expect to see results?

Most patients achieve their desired results after 3-5 sessions, spaced 4-6 weeks apart.

Is the treatment painful?

During treatment, many patients feel a warm, prickly sensation as the pulses are emitted onto their skin. After treatment, a red “sunburn” appearance and feel is also common. Topical numbing cream is applied prior to reduce discomfort during treatment.

What do I need to do before and after my Sublative treatment?

You must discontinue any exfoliating products including alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) serums, scrubs, retinol night creams and topical prescriptions (Triluma, Retin-A, Tretinoin etc…) for at least 5 days prior to and 5 days after your treatment.

You must avoid wearing any makeup for at least 12 hours after your Sublative treatment.

It is very important to apply sunscreen daily after this treatment, as your skin will be more sensitive to the sun’s damaging rays
