If you have loose, sagging and wrinkled skin on your jowls, neck, cheeks, and forehead then Sublime would be a good tissue tightening option. In addition, lax skin on the eyelids, a heavy brow, or upper eyelid drooping, as well as lax abdominal skin, upper arm skin, or lax buttocks or thighs may benefit from this treatment. In some cases, we also find patients with superficial acne scars, rough skin texture, and mild to moderate superficial wrinkles can gain improvement with these treatments.
You should not have Sublime treatments if you are pregnant or have been on Accutane within the past 6 months. If you have a pacemaker, internal defibrillator, or metal implants you may not have radiofrequency treatments, but you may be treated with the TriPollar Apollo. If you are diabetic, have an auto-immune disease, have recently been treated with chemotherapy, or are over 65, you may need more treatments to achieve less effect due to possible slow collagen production. Patients with a history of HSV (cold sores) may have a flare after a treatment. We can prescribe prophylactic medications prior to treatment.
