Sublime Skin Tightening

Sublime skin tightening treatment is a non-invasive wrinkle reduction procedure used to tighten areas with mild skin laxity. Sublime employs bi-polar radiofrequency and infrared technology to heat the dermis and stimulate collagen production which results in a more refreshed and youthful appearance. Areas typically treated include the neck, jawline, cheeks, or upper face. Sublime is safe to use on all skin types and can be used in conjunction with other rejuvenative procedures. Unfortunately, sublime cannot be performed if dermal fillers have been injected into the treatment area within 4 weeks prior to treatment. It is also recommended that patients with thyroid nodules or history of thyroid cancers should not be treated with Sublime on their neck.
