Sublative RF is the world’s first radiofrequency (RF) only, non-laser and non-light-based aesthetic procedure that is FDA-cleared to treat a range of skin conditions and skin types safely. This Fractional Sublative Rejuvenation is different than traditional resurfacing as the latter removes the complete skin surface resulting in longer recovery time, while the fractional technology reaches deeper into the skin, and covers the skin area in patterns of dots which brings about faster healing.
Sublative RF is customized to various skin types, with varying intensity depending on what the problem is and how much downtime the patient can afford. In the milder setting, it can be used for enlarged pores, fine lines, and improving skin texture. This can be done once every 2-3 wks for 3 times to achieve a smoother and finer complexion. The down time is about 1-2 days of looking “tanned”, after which there will be slight flaking off of the skin. For patients with acne scars, the machine can be set at a higher intensity, which causes slightly more redness and 3-4 days of downtime. The indications for this treatment are stubborn pores, deep acne scars and uneven skin texture.
