Advanced Skin Treatments: Sublative

Sublative Skin Rejuvenation

sublativeSublative is the only professional one-hour treatment that restores a more youthful appearance to the skin without causing aggressive damage.

It is neither laser, nor light-based. Instead, it harnesses the power of fractionated bi-polar radiofrequency (also known as gentle energy currents) to deeply penetrate the skin and stimulate collagen production beneath the surface while keeping the outer layer of skin intact.

Sublative produces the same kind of results as aggressive procedures without the pain, downtime, side effects or cost. There is no visible injury to the skin’s outer layers. Focused energy currents are applied to the skin in a matrix, bypassing upper layers of the skin and stimulating the natural production of collagen at the source. This “resets” the body’s regenerative process, which is why results continue to improve over time.

Gentle heat is delivered at the underlying connective tissue where the skin joins the muscle—the same layer that is tightened during a conventional facelift. This tissue is gently heated, causing it to contract and eventually lift. As a result, formerly loose skin appears subtly tightened.

Sublative is an intelligent technology. Dr. Sasmor and her esthetic team are able get feedback on how the energy is impacting the underlying layers of skin on a screen during the procedure, so the treatment can be precisely targeted. Radio frequency waves penetrate the skin through small pin holes to stimulate collagen growth from the inside.


Safe for use on virtually all skin tones, it effectively targets common skin concerns while eliminating apprehensions about cost, pain, downtime and side effects.

What to Expect

Sublative results are immediate and continue to improve over the course of a few months.

  • Improved elasticity
  • Improved radiance
  • More lifted
  • More even tone
  • Smoother, more supple texture
  • Fewer acne scars, discolorations and sun damage

Sublative sessions are less than one-hour long. For optimum results, three visits are advised 4-6 weeks apart. Each treatment produces incremental improvements to the gradual formation of collagen and, as a result, gradual improvements to your appearance. The total number of sessions depends on your skin’s condition.

As energy enters the skin, some patients experience a warm, prickly sensation comparable to a rubber band snap, depending on the areas treated and energy settings. A red or pink flush resembling a mild sunburn is common after treatment. Topical anesthetic ointments and cool gels may be used to reduce temporary discomfort during treatment. Most patients report no serious after-effects like crusting or peeling and go back to work as usual following treatment.
