Sublative Skin Resurfacing For Acne Scars & More!

Sublative Skin Resurfacing is a unique procedure that uses radiofrequency to deliver effective yet controlled ablative and non-ablative fractional treatment for acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, and better texture and texture of the skin. “This process creates micro-injuries to the surface of the skin. As these areas heal, it promotes cell turnover, healthy collagen, and elastin,” states Amy Bowen, Licensed Medical Aesthetic and Certified Laser Technician at Sanova Dermatology in Austin, Texas. Significant skin concerns including stretch marks, uneven tone and texture, fine lines and wrinkles, scars, especially acne, and traumatic scars, have been shown to be extremely beneficial with this treatment.

Treatment Process

“Ablative, which is a more in-depth treatment, utilizes lasers to remove the top thin layers of skin,” explains Bowen. “Non-ablative therapies are less invasive than ablative,” she continues. They pass through the surface without removing layers and uses lasers which stimulate collagen growth, as well as tightening underlying skin. By encouraging collagen growth, it helps fill in unwanted skin imperfections.

Types of Laser Options

  • CO2 lasers are ablative and used to treat more profound skin imperfections, scars, and wrinkles.
    Erbium lasers can be ablative or non-ablative and promote collagen production, which can be useful to treat age spots and skin laxity.
  • Pulsed-Dye Lasers are non-ablative and reduce redness of the skin treating broken capillaries and rosacea.
  • IPL (Intense Pulse Light), also known as a photofacial, is not a laser but is used to address similar issues such as sun damage, acne, and rosacea.
