Sublative RF Skin Rejuvenation

Sublative RF Skin Rejuvenation

Sublative Radio Frequency (RF) enables you to achieve a more youthful appearance. The RF energy is precisely directed into the skin in the form of a matrix. Healthy skin around the treated area accelerates the healing process of the skin. Post-treatment, new collagen and healthy skin cells are produced. Mild to moderate wrinkles and superficial imperfections of your skin are reduced. It can also improve textural irregularities from acne scaring.

Typical treatment protocol is three treatments, four to six weeks apart. The total number of required treatment sessions depends on your skin’s condition. Sublative RF can be used on the face, neck, and chest area.

Makeup Services & Makeup Alternatives
