Honestly, we sometimes feel like Sublime laser skin tightening is something from a science fiction flick; it’s incredibly effective and feels way too advanced for our time. This procedure uses both medical-grade laser energy and bipolar radio waves to stimulate collagen production in the targeted areas. Since Sublime uses potentially dangerous laser technology, it’s important that you visit a highly-trained professional for all of your treatments; we are proud to offer Sublime skin tightening laser skin treatment here at Academic Alliance in Dermatology, performed only by the most talented of professionals!
As mentioned above, the Sublime procedure uses radio waves and laser (infrared) light to penetrate into the deeper layers of your skin’s cells. The stimulation produced by the combination of light and sound causes collagen to be built up in your targeted areas more quickly than it normally would— which, for people with wrinkles, can be very helpful.
Sublime is best for people who have small amounts of wrinkling or sagging. It is important to note that we don’t expect them to see results directly after the first treatment. Collagen takes time to construct and build up, so you should expect to see your results develop over time, too.
What Does A Sublime Laser Do?
Here at Academic Alliance in Dermatology, we offer a wide variety of laser-treatment services to help you reduce fine lines, scars, pigmentation issues, and wrinkles, but Sublime is simply one of the best. Since this laser is combined with radio wave frequencies, the process can be made more efficient and effective. Sublime treatments can also be combined with other procedures like Botox and other fillers.
What Happens During The Procedure?
As you arrive for your Sublime procedure, your laser technician will explain the process of your visit. Your technician may want you to come with a clean face, free of moisturizers or makeup. You may also need to wash your face when you arrive at your appointment, depending on how your laser specialist does his or her own sessions. The best part? There’s no downtime with Sublime skin tightening. When the laser goes off, you’re all set— no bandages or creams necessary!
Does Sublime Laser Treatment Hurt?
The procedure itself is non-invasive and does no physical damage to the skin tissue. This being said, some patients— especially those with very sensitive skin— have noticed that the procedure causes mild reddening of the skin. Even these patients, however, do not have any pain associated with the procedure. Any swelling or redness that occurs as a result of the laser will subside well within 24 hours.
How Long Is the Procedure?
This will depend on the extensiveness of the area that you would like targeted. The more surface area your technician has to cover, the longer your procedure will take. You should plan to spend anywhere from thirty minutes to an hour actively under the laser.
