Sublative Resurfacing & Rejuvenation
SKIN’s Laser Rejuvenation treatment uses bi-polar radio frequency energy to rejuvenate and improve skin tone and texture by maximizing collagen production. RF energy is delivered beneath the surface of the skin with minimal disruption to the exterior of the skin. Fine lines, wrinkles and superficial skin discoloration are reduced, and skin texture becomes more smooth and elastic. Treatments are clinically proven to be effective on all skin types and have virtually no associated down time.

Prior to Treatment
Prior to treatment you will be scheduled for a complimentary consultation with a SKIN specialist who will review previous and current skin care, perform a detailed skin analysis, and discuss general health history before recommending a customized treatment program. As individual programs will vary from client to client, the associated cost will vary as well. However, a quote will be provided during the initial assessment process.
A topical numbing gel is applied to the treatment area, and left on for approximately an hour to ensure a more comfortable treatment.. Treatment is relatively quick, between 30-60 minutes, depending on the area being treated. During treatment, you may feel a warm, prickly sensation as energy enters your skin. After treatment a pink or red “sunburn” appearance and feeling is also common.
Most patients easily undergo the procedure. The pulses of combined energy can cause the sensation of heat or brief stinging. Some swelling and/or redness is usually visible immediately after the treatment. The redness usually subsides within a few hours but some swelling may continue to be slightly evident for up to 48 hours post-treatment. This indicates that the skin is working to respond to the treatment, which is the process through which new collagen and elastin is formed. Most patients return immediately to work. Ibuprofen taken immediately before and after treatment will minimize the duration of swelling.
Following treatment you may notice improvement in your skin’s tone and texture as a result of increased levels of collagen and the production of new healthy skin cells. With the treatment’s dermal impact, mild to moderate wrinkles and superficial skin discolorations are reduced. Typical treatment plans consist of 3 or more treatments, 4 to 6 weeks apart. The total number of required treatment sessions depends on the condition of your skin and will be determined in consultation.
