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.
“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.
