Acne Treatment Top Questions Answered
SublativeTM RF resurfacing uses fractionated bi-polar radio frequency to penetrate through the epidermal and dermal layers of the skin.
- The fractionated ablation zone, vaporises the build up of keratinised cell debris that builds up in the follicle helping to clear/decongest them.
- The thermal injury zone also affects the sebaceous glands, therefore reducing/controlling sebum production.
How Does Acne Treatment Feel?
Many patients feel a warm, prickly sensation in the treatment area. Numbing creams can be used to reduce any discomfort you might feel. SublativeTM acne treatment is much less painful than traditional fractional treatment.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Usually, four treatments are needed, once per month. Waiting one month between treatments allows your body to construct more collagen and elastin matrix in the epidermal and dermal layers. The total number of treatments will depend on your skin condition and how many areas need to be treated.
How Long Will It Take To See The Results?
Maximum benefits are seen up to 3 months after the final treatment. Acne may require maintenance treatments every 6 months. You may notice improvements in the appearance of fine lines, sun damage or broken capillaries and skin texture within a few weeks of treatment.
Is There Any Down Time After Treatment?
No. The skin will have very tiny pinhole like marks where the treatment occurred and the skin will have redness similar to a light sunburn. This redness calms down within 24 hours and the small marks can be covered up with tinted moisturizer. You can return to work the same day and return to active exercise the next day.
How Safe Is SublativeTM Treatment?
It is very safe. It has been tested in controlled clinical trials and has been shown to produce no serious side effects aside from some pain and redness, which calms down within a couple of days. There is no risk of scarring, infection, burns or changes in skin colour that can occur with lasers.
All skin types, including dark skin tones, can be treated.
Can Anyone Have SublativeTM Treatment?
SublativeTM treatment is not an option if you have metal or electrical implants (e.g. a pacemaker), eczema, bleeding disorders, are pregnant, or on particular medication. If you have further questions about whether this treatment is an option for you, you can discuss them during your inital consultation.
