Sublative - Non-Ablative Skin Resurfacing
The name might sound technical, but all you need to know is that this is an impressive anti-aging facial that will reduce wrinkles (crow’s feet, laugh lines, etc.), fade hyper-pigmentation (age spots, sun spots, etc.) and smooth over surface scarring (acne, post-surgery, etc.).
Using laser to deliver heat into the dermis, this treatment triggers the body’s own healing process to promote new growth and replace affected areas with fresh, healthy tissue and collagen. The outer layer of the skin is completely unaffected. Because this is based on your own natural skin cell turnover, you’ll need about three weeks to see full results.
This one will hurt, no way around it. Even with numbing cream, your face will get warm from the laser and you’ll feel a sharp prickly sensation. After your treatment, your face will feel like it’s sunburned, which will last about three days. Down time is one-two weeks, during which you must protect your skin from UV rays to prevent further sun damage. Apply sun protection with a minimum of SPF 30.
