Acne Scar Treatment and Wrinkle Removal, in Monmouth County, NJ
Our skin is on the front lines of war with the sun, weather extremes, and pollutants in the enviroment. Plus, as we age, our bodies produce less of the support proteins collagen and elastin that the skin needs to stay plump and firm. The result? Wrinkles, acne scars, texture irregularities, and other skin issues. Sublative skin rejuvenation with Dr. LoBuono can reverse some of that damage to our skin.
What is sublative skin rejuvenation?
Sublative skin rejuvenation is Dr. LoBuono’s treatment of choice for patients who have mild to moderate wrinkles, acne scars, and rough skin. It works its wonders through radio frequency energy that is directed into the skin through a matrix in a disposable applicator.
How does sublative skin rejuvenation work?
In contrast to ablative laser procedures that damage the skin’s surface to encourage new growth, sublative skin rejuvenation uses fractional bi-polar radio frequency energy to penetrate the epidermis and get down into the dermis. This is where the radio frequency energy can really stimulate the body to produce new collagen for the areas affected by acne scars and wrinkles. Why does this happen? The energy released into the dermis makes the body think it has been injured in some way, and the natural response to injury is to produce new collagen to support the skin. And it does all this without damaging the surface of the skin.
What can you expect from a sublative skin rejuvenation procedure?
Sublative skin rejuvenation takes about an hour for each treatment. Three treatments are recommended, spaced out from four to six weeks between treatments. You will see blemishs, wrinkles and acne scars disappear. Your results will continue to improve over time as the body builds new collagen and skin.
Will sublative skin rejuvenation hurt?
At our practice in Monmouth County, Patient safety and comfort is always our priority. During the procedure, topical anesthetic creams and cooling methods are used to keep you comfortable. However, you will feel a warm, pricking sensation during the treatment as the energy is delivered into the skin. Afterwards, your skin will be slightly pink for the next two days (like a minor sunburn), but this can be covered with makeup.
