FOR WRINKLE REDUCTION, FACIAL CONTOUR & SKIN QUALITY

Sublime™ Skin Contouring

Sublime™ skin contouring treatment is a safe, non-invasive, wrinkle reduction procedure used to contour skin. Sublime combines energies to precisely heat the dermal tissue and stimulate production of collagen within the target treatment area using infrared light in combination with bi-polar radio frequency.

 

Fine wrinkles are reduced, facial contours improved and overall skin quality reveals a much smoother, more even complexion. Sublime is safe and effective on all skin types and involves no downtime. Great in combination with other treatments for maximum results.

See our brochure for details as well as Skin Rejuvenation Packages which allow you to address skin issues on multiple layers of the skin. By combining different types of skin rejuvenation treatments, you get maximum results by addressing more than one skin issue at once. All Consultations complimentary.

(1) Initial Consultation

Before your first treatment, you will come in for an initial consultation where we will discuss realistic expectations, explain how Sublime works and other treatments that will help complement and enhance your results, go over pricing, fill out Forms (which you can bring with you when you come in or fill out in office), and set up your schedule. We will also go over ways to increase your Sublime success with products, combinations of treatments, and overall recommendations.

You will not be receiving treatment on the day of this initial consultation, however you will receive a full treatment plan, with customized pricing, as well as how to prep for your treatment(s).

(2) Before Your Treatments

Fill out all relevant forms on our FORMS page. A topical anesthetic can be applied one hour prior to treatment (if necessary). All options will be discussed with you during the initial consultation.

Please note:

    1. Sublime cannot be performed if dermal fillers have been injected into the treatment area within 4 weeks prior to treatment and no Botox 2 weeks before and 2 weeks after.
    2. Make sure to stay out of the sun and tanning booths for 2 weeks prior to your appointment.
    3. It is not recommended that patients with thyroid nodules or a history of thyroid cancers should be treated with Sublime on their neck.
    4. All exfoliating products containing a scrub or acids (ie. p50) should be discontinued 3 days before and 1 week after.
    5. Patients who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have any serious illnesses should have a written medical release from their doctor before having treatment.
    6. Discontinue any irritant topical agents for 2-7 days prior to treatment.

(3) During Your Treatments

Goggles are used to protect the patient’s eyes and a cool gel creates a barrier to protect the patient’s skin. Slight pressure is felt during treatment, and you may feel some discomfort, but most patients do not seem to have issues with pain for this treatment. However, a topical anesthetic is available upon request if you need.

Most patients see gradual and cumulative results throughout their Sublime treatment series, but you can see contouring results almost instantly. 

Treatments typically take under one hour (depending on the number of areas being treated).

(4) What To Expect After Treatment

Minimal swelling and redness may be noted immediately post treatment, but will disappear the same day. We often have patients the come in on their lunch break for this treatment, and they are able to return to work immediately after. Expect a tighter, more youthful appearance, and reduction in the telltale signs of aging – including sagging under the eyes and nasolabial folds. Fine wrinkles are reduced, facial contours and overall skin quality is improved. There is no downtime with this treatment. This treatment is also a complement to all other skin rejuvenation treatments we do.

Multiple treatments are recommended to achieve the best results. Treatments are spaced a month apart. After you’ve achieved optimal results, maintenance is recommended at one treatment seasonally or another series 1-2 times per year depending on skin condition and age.

For longer-lasting results, we recommend Sublime treatments in combination with Sublative treatments. See the Skin Rejuvenation Treatments Packages in our brochure for more.
