How it works: energy is deposited into the skin to initiate a healing response. The radio frequency used to break through the skin keeps the top layer of the skin from getting damaged and allows for more energy to get underneath the skin.
Treatment time: sublative treatment generally takes no longer than 20-40 minutes. Treatment plans typically consist of a recommended 3-5 treatments, this is based on what the patient would like to achieve with sublative, spaced out about 6 weeks apart.
Downtime: some patients experience some pain during treatment; numbing cream can help with this. Minimal pain and downtime are associated with sublative treatment, and noticeable results are achieved within days of receiving treatment.
