We all desire perfectly smooth and radiant skin that is free of blemishes and wrinkles. Lately, more and more people have been discovering a cutting-edge method of achieving youthful rejuvenated skin known as sublative fractional RF. At Shafer Clinic Fifth Avenue, we’re happy to offer this state-of-the-art non-surgical solution.
Sublative Fractional RF Treatment
Before opting for this procedure, it is important to know how it works. Sublative fractional RF treatment is an alternative to harsh laser treatments and chemical-based treatments like chemical peels and microdermabrasion. This procedure uses radio frequency technology, which is much gentler.
Radio frequency energy is a great option for reducing the signs of aging. It tightens the skin, erases fine lines and wrinkles, shrinks large pores, and heals acne scars. It also reduces the appearance of stretch marks and imparts a youthful glow to the skin. Its benefits are similar to those of a laser treatment, but unlike laser treatments, sublative fractional RF treatment does not rely on skin ablation.
How Does It Work?
During sublative fractional RF treatment, radio frequency energy is applied to the skin cells. Fractional treatments like this involve the creation of microscopic treatment zones in the targeted area rather than complete treatment of the area. This allows the unaffected healthy regions around the treatment zones to help heal the treatment zones effectively.
The application of RF energy to the tissues helps initiate a healing response without destroying the top layer of skin cells. Because there is no damage to the epidermal skin cells, you will not need to deal with weeks of downtime for further healing. The RF energy penetrates harmlessly into the skin layers, travelling deep to stimulate the production of new collagen protein. This improves the quality of the skin on a deeper level in order to remove harsh imperfections.
A topical anesthetic may be applied at the start of the procedure, and a cooling mechanism may be used. These help to keep the patient as comfortable as possible during treatment.
Sublative fractional RF treatment will take place over the course of three to five sessions, which will be spaced out rather than performed in immediate succession. Around four to six weeks will be required between each treatment. After the treatment process is over, you will be able to see your skin transform from dull and weathered to even-toned and smooth.
The biggest plus of this treatment is that it is suited for all skin tones, from light to dark, and is even safe for sensitive skin. It can help anyone who is looking to achieve blemish-free skin with a natural glow.
