What is Acne Scarring?
SublativeTM Technology Treating Pimple Scars
Sublative RF resurfacing uses fractionated bi-polar radio frequency to penetrate through the epidermal and dermal layers of the skin. This technique sends more energy beneath the surface of the skin in a cone shape to really maximise collagen production, while keeping the top layer of the skin intact as you can see in the diagram below. This is the key point of difference with the Sublative which means superior results with less downtime vs other laser treatments.
Traditional Fractional vs Sublative Rejuvenation
The fractionated Radio Frequency energy breaks down the old scar tissue from the injury and encouraging the reproduction of the new collagen is a more organised manner. SublativeTM targets the body’s natural wound healing process via cell destruction and reconstruction which triggers collagen and elastin production in very specific areas in the top dermal layer. Your natural wound healing mechanism then repairs the scar, wrinkle or stretch mark from lower layer of your skin without damaging the top epidermal layer. Post treatment, you will notice increased levels of beneficial collagen as new healthy skin cells are produced as seen in the below diagram. Scars, fine wrinkles and superficial skin discolorations are reduced, and the texture of your skin becomes smoother and more elastic.

Active Acne Frequently Asked Questions
How does a treatment feel?
Under the lower to medium settings the feeling is similar to very light pinpricks on the skin. Over the counter anaesthetic cream will be applied to reduce the discomfort under the highest setting. SublativeTM is much less painful than Traditional Fractional treatment.
How often should I have treatments?
To get the best results, treatments should be done once each month for the full course (usually three to five treatments) then a follow up treatment every 6 months as maintenance. Waiting one month between treatments allows your body to develop more collagen and elastin in the epidermal and dermal skin layer.
What is the downtime after a treatment?
There is no downtime with SublativeTM treatment. The skin will have very tiny pinhole like marks where the treatment occurred. The skin will have redness similar to light sunburn. This redness calms down within 24 hours and the small marks can be covered up with tinted moisturiser. You can return to work the same day and return to active exercise the next day.
How much do SublativeTM treatment(s) cost?
The cost of acne scar treatments will depend on the size of the area. See the full price list for Acne Scar Treatment Sydney alternatively you can book a free Acne Scar consultation to get personalised treatment information for your treatment area.
