If you’ve been looking for nonsurgical treatment options to get rid of wrinkles, or tighten and tone the skin, you may be a good candidate for sublative skin rejuvenation treatments. Sublative rejuvenation procedures, including the eMatrix Skin treatment and Syneron’s Sublative Rejuvenation™ procedure target the dermal tissue deep under the skin’s surface to stimulate collagen production and strengthen the skin tone.
Whether your goal is to eliminate premature signs of aging or tone up sagging skin, there are several reasons to choose sublative rejuvenation over facelift surgery. Here’s a close look at how this anti aging procedure works, and if you may be a good candidate for a sublative rejuvenation procedure:
How Sublative Rejuvenation Works
The eMatrix laser and Syneron’s laser rejuvenation system are laser and light based procedures designed to correct scars, skin discoloration and light to medium wrinkles. Light therapy to correct skin imperfections has been used for over a decade in the United States, but it wasn’t until 2004 that physicians began to use both light and laser treatments to achieve results similar to a face lift.
Sublative rejuvenation procedures offer a non-surgical solution for treating aging skin by sending energy deep into the skin’s layers while keeping the top layer of the skin intact. The heat and light energy cause the skin to contract and create just enough damage to trigger the collagen production process. This helps to strengthen the skin tone and makes it more resilient during the healing process. The heat from the procedure also helps to accelerate the skin’s natural healing process, which in turn leads to a tighter, more toned appearance.
Key Benefits of Sublative Rejuvenation
Sublative rejuvenation treatments offer a number of benefits for men and women of all skin types, and are typically performed in less than half an hour. They are an alternative to aggressive chemical peels and some types of fractional laser resurfacing treatments, because they do not damage the top layer of skin and do not pose a risk of burning the skin tissue.
Unlike traditional fractional resurfacing procedures that reach only the top two layers of the skin, sublative rejuvenation procedures go deeper into the skin’s surface without affecting the surrounding tissues. The radiofrequency energy generates enough heat to induce a skin injury, thereby creating a wound healing response.
Some of the key benefits of sublative rejuvenation include:
Works from the inside out to stimulate collagen growth
Results can be enhanced with yearly maintenance treatments
Little to no downtime – most people return to regular activities immediately after their procedure
Clinically proven to treat stretch marks and textural irregularities
Can treat fine lines and wrinkles
Helps reduce acne scars
Serves as a skin tightening and toning treatment
Proven safe and effective on all skin types
Can be used on pigmented skin
Helps to lift and tone the skin
