Our three most popular laser skin treatments are:

  • Sublime Skin Tightening
  • Sublative Skin Resurfacing
  • SR/SRA Skin Rejuvenation

Sublative Skin Resurfacing


  • What is It?


Sublative treatments work on the skin from the inside-out. It is a device that uses bipolar radiofrequency (RF). It contains multi-electrode pins which deliver the RF energy deep into the layers of the skin to correct uneven textures.


  • What is it Good For?


These treatments are perfect for evening out skin texture. This includes the following: acne scarring, wrinkles, fine lines, large pores or stretch marks. Because it reaches the deep layers of the skin, it also works on hyperpigmentation issues such as sun spots and age spots.


  • How Does It Work?


The multiple pins deliver the bipolar RF energy onto the skin in a grid-like pattern, a series of dots. Those dots carry that energy deep into the dermis, without disrupting the outer layer of the skin. Essentially the skin is “punctured” which creates a healing response and stimulates collagen production. Collagen works to “heal” the area by bringing about more laxity and smoothing the skin’s surface.

SR/SRA Skin Rejuvenation


  • What is It?


The SR/SRA skin rejuvenation is a technology that uses a combination of bipolar radiofrequency and light energy and delivers both to the skin. The energy is converted to thermal or heat energy and carried below the skin’s surface. It targets cells with pigmented and vascular lesions and works to rejuvenate the skin—give it back its radiance.


  • What is it Good For?


The SR/SRA treatment is used to help even out skin tones, treat pigmented lesions, vascular lesions, rosacea, spider veins as well as dark age spots or sun damage. The SR/SRA treatment can treat the face, chest, hands, and arms.


  • How Does It Work?


When the energies are delivered into the cells, it effectively heats the cells. The cells that have either the pigmentation lesion or the vascular lesion, absorb the heat. As that heat rises, it causes the damaged cells to be destroyed. The radiofrequency flows into the heated areal as well to improve the appearance of the skin. As a result, clients may feel slight warmth and some redness, but there is no downtime needed.

Sublime Skin Tightening


  • What is It?


Sublime treatments work to increase collagen production, however, instead of resurfacing, it focuses on tightening and contouring the skin. As with sublative, it works from the inside-out and uses dual energy. But in this case the energies are bipolar radiofrequency and infrared heat. In addition to collagen, it stimulates the production of elastin as well.  


  • What Is It Good For?


Due to the skin tightening effect, these treatments are used commonly for anti-aging. It works on deep wrinkles, skin folds, droopy eyelids, jowls, or loose skin around the face and neck areas.


  • How Does It Work?


Sublime treatments work by having the energy delivered to the skin being carried deep into the dermis. This causes heating of the tissue deep in the targeted area and causes more collagen and elastic to be produced. As these components are created, the skin becomes more firm and tight, as well as smooth (due to the tightening). Both collagen and elastin help to increase skin’s smoothness and firmness, working on texture and laxity of the skin. The heat is only applied in the targeted area and no surrounding tissue is affected. As such, the skin is not harmed, there is no downtime.
