The most important pathway to smoother skin texture and overall younger looking skin is...collagen. Collagen is a protein in our body that helps our skin look and feel young and tight, and is the most abundant protein in our bodies. Although there are tons of skin care products that attempt to bottle collagen up and sell it back to us, the reality is that collagen is with us all along, it just needs some encouragement to be brought back to the surface. New collagen cell production stops at age 25, but there are still collagen cells in our bodies. Sublative Skin Resurfacing, done with Elos Plus technology, is the best and most effective way to promote new collagen cell production.

The benefits of Sublative Skin Resurfacing is almost endless, but there are a few that are the top reasons as to why this treatment is the best and most effective way to achieve younger looking skin. 

Let’s discuss our top seven benefits we have found with Sublative Skin Resurfacing...

1) Treats a variety of skin issues

Unlike other skin care treatments that are skin issue specific, this Elos Plus skin rejuvenation treatment provides a solution from a number of skin concerns: hyper pigmentation, vascular lesions, rosacea, sun/age spots and spider veins. Combining the powers intense pulsed light (IPL) and bipolar radiofrequency (RF), Elos Plus skin rejuvenation treatments reach deep into the dermis to isolate and treat a specific pigmented area without harming the surrounding skin. We call this the triniti facial and is our most rejuvenating and multi-pronged attack on skin concerns.

2) Comfortable Sessions

One of the first questions we usually get asks before an Elos Plus treatment is, “will it hurt?” The answer is a little bit. The Elos Plus delivers energy deep into the dermis where energy passes through in various streams (grid-like pattern) deep into the tissues, when there is heat induction, however there is no damage or heat felt on the surface. We use a topical anesthetic containing tetracaine and lidocaine applied about 25 minutes before your treatment to minimize discomfort. 

3) Minimized downtime

Compared to traditional skin rejuvenation treatments that usually require at least a week of complete hiding in the dark, Elos Plus requires virtually no downtime. Gone are the days of having to carefully schedule your life around your appointment—in fact, many of our clients are able to return to their daily lives immediately post-treatment. A sensation similar to a mild sunburn may be present for the first 24 hours post-procedure; however, if it does occur it will calm down quickly. Clients should be able to continue their regular skin care and makeup routines. We insist on incorporating an SPF into your daily routine post-treatment (if you don’t already)!

4) Able to treat a variety of skin issues

Sublative Skin Resurfacing is able to treat acne scars, brown spots, wrinkles, fine lines, large pores, stretch marks, hyperpigmentation, and sun spots. All of these issues are a direct cause of lack of collagen in the skin, which is why Sublative Skin Resurfacing is the best and most effective way to treat any of these skin imperfections. 

5) Treatments are customizable

Although the same laser is used, different laser intensities and wavelengths are used when performing sublative skin resurfacing. Due to the fact that is able to treat a variety of skin issues, the laser can be interchangeable as the skin issues are different. Based on what the patient would like treated, the laser nurse can figure out how intense the laser will be and how long the sessions will take.

6) Able to treat a variety of skin tones

Unfortunately, not all skin tones were able to benefit from laser technologies in the past. Luckily, with the advancement in laser technology, we are now able to treat a variety of skin tones from very fair to dark tones. The technology now, with a trustworthy laser such as Elos Plus, is able to differentiate the pigmentation and texture in the skin vs. the cells. As such, those with darker skin tones may benefit from Sublative Skin Resurfacing as well as Sublime Skin Tightening treatments. The treatment is safe or all skin types and tones. 

7) Safe and effective

Sublative Skin Resurfacing is completely safe and effective. The laser does not use heat to treat the skin, which means that damage will not be done like burning or blistering. Also, treatments are spaced anywhere from four to six weeks apart, which ensures that the skin is healed and ready for a new laser treatment. No technician in our clinic will perform a treatment on you if they feel as though your skin will be damaged. Most effective results are seen when there are a number of treatments used on the skin. Many of our patients see a difference in as little as three appointments, and the most noticeable results will appear a week after the initial session. This all depends on the patient's skin tone or type.

Healthy, smooth, and beautiful-looking skin can really boost your overall appearance. Your skin plays a significant role in the appearance of all of your features, including your neck and brow. If your skin needs a rejuvenating boost, consider Elos Plus sublative skin rejuvenation.
