While I was undergoing my regular treatments at SpaMedica I met with Dr. Mullholand and we discussed my results. He was very happy with how everything was progressing and we discussed trying an extra treatment – Sublative Rejuvenation by eMatrix. A supplemental treatment for me at this point in my regime but an alternative option for others depending on your skins needs.
Sublative Rejuvenation is a new and unique treatment modality that goes beyond current methods in skin rejuvenation. Sublative Rejuvenation provides wrinkle reduction as well as overall textural improvement, tightening and luminosity for ALL skin types. Some skin conditions (such as eczema) may prohibit patients from receiving the treatment. In addition Sublative Rejuvenation is also clinically effective for scar revision and treating superficial skin lesions such as acne scars.
To achieve the best possible results when addressing skin imperfections the energy, whether it be laser or light, the energy must be delivered below the skin without overheating the top layer of the skin. Sublative Rejuvenation uses fractionated bi-polar radio frequency to penetrate through the skin allowing more energy beneath the surface of the skin to really maximize collagen production while keeping the top layer of the skin intact.
Post treatment, new collagen and new healthy skin cells are produced. Mild to moderate wrinkles, superficial skin discolorations and skin lesions are reduced and skin texture becomes more smooth and elastic. Patients notice increased levels of beneficial collagen and new healthy skin cells are produced. Mild to moderate wrinkles and superficial skin discolorations are reduced, and the texture of your skin becomes smoother and more elastic.
This procedure was also uncomfortable, but the pain was bearable because of the numbing cream. Out of all the treatments I have had at SpaMedica this was the most “painful” but again I would go through it again. After the treatment my skin was red and it looked like I had a bad sunburn. I went on the subway after and let me tell you I got lots of looks. I was given a cold gel pack on the ride home and by the time I got to my door it was warm. I applied a SkinCeutical cream and applied cold compresses on my face for several hours to help with the pain and redness.
My face was red for two and a half days and you could see a waffle pattern on my skin. I was a bit worried thinking that this was an indication of scarring but it was just proof that the treatment had penetrated deep inside my skin. During the first two-to-five days post treatment I experienced dry skin and then flaking as the older layers of skin exfoliate. I didn’t apply any make up and used SkinCeutical post treatments products. The skin under the flaking older skin was amazing!! My girlfriends were complimenting me on my skin a week later telling me I was glowing. I felt the glow!!
My biggest piece of advice is to plan accordingly around this procedure. Don’t plan on doing any fancy dinners or events for at least 6 days after. After that enjoy the results!
