Sublative and Sublime Q&A

Antiaging | 0 comments

In the Medspa world of facial treatments, there are two popular procedures that often get grouped together: Sublative and Sublime. Let’s break them down!

What is the skin procedure that uses Sublative and Sublime?

Sublative and Sublime are two of the most in demand skin treatments on the market. But due to their conveniently interchangeable names and are both commonly performed within a single session, it is often unclear on what each treatment does and how they work.

Sublative and Sublime do share common traits in that they are both non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatments that produce smoother, more youthful skin. However, both treatments have their own unique characteristics that not only highly effective individually but are able to produce optimal results when used together.

Sublative vs. Sublime? The Derma Duo

Though these procedures work to accomplish a similar task, the differing vehicles of energy is what yields maximum results when they are combined. While sublime is for those who want to tighten and shrink sagging skin, Sublative is best for those plump up the skin and need to reduce texture. Compared to other energy-based treatments, none has such little downtime, with such positive results; regardless of skin types and skin tones.

What is Sublative Skin Resurfacing?

Sublative rejuvenation, it is a fancy term to describe a special procedure to help resurface uneven texture and create a smooth skin surface. It is done by using radio frequency (RF) energy that penetrate the skin layers and heat the tissues where the collagen is produced.

What is Sublime Skin Tightening?

Like the Sublative, the Sublime restores and promotes new collagen from the inside out, however its main emphasis is to tighten the skin and give it a more contoured appearance. As we age, our skin naturally loses its elasticity and becomes lax. By utilizing bi-polar RF energy and deep infrared heat to penetrate through the dermal layers of skin, the Sublative treatment essentially tricks the skin into healing itself by stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin As a result, your laxity decreases significantly, giving your skin more youthful characteristics.

What is the benefit?

One of the best benefits is that through this procedure it is able to reach deep derma layers of the skin without disrupting the top layer of the skin (the epidermis). This treatment is perfect for patients that suffer from skin textures caused by acne scarring, wrinkles, fine lines, large pores or stretch marks. Also effective in eliminating hyperpigmentation such as sunspots or age spots.

Does Sublative and Sublime treatment require any after care?

Here is more good news! There is no downtime – it truly provides instant gratification. During the procedure there is a special serum used to treat fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, scars, acne scares, enlarged pores, uneven skin tone and texture. This promotes skin wellness from the inside/out.
