Portland Skin Resurfacing

Smooth Out the Lines of Time with Skin Resurfacing

The Ematrix Sublative® skin resurfacing treatment enables you to achieve a more youthful appearance. This technology has been shown to effectively treat mild to moderate wrinkles and textural irregularities. Radio frequency energy is applied to the skin in a matrix. The healthy skin around the spots accelerates the healing process. This is truly the next generation of safe and effective rejuvenation technology. Over time, our skin’s youthful appearance is affected by the cumulative effects from sun exposure, loss of collagen, moisture, and other outside effects. The Ematrix Sublative® is used to treat mild to moderate wrinkles and textural irregularities. Restore your skin’s natural beauty and look as young as you feel.

How Does Sublative® Skin Resurfacing Work?

Radio frequency energy is precisely directed into the skin in the form of a matrix. Healthy skin around the dots accelerates the healing process of the skin. After treatment, new collagen and healthy skin cells are produced. Mild to moderate wrinkles and superficial imperfections of your skin’s tone and texture are reduced.

Is Sublative® Skin Resurfacing Right for Me?

Treatment is a safe and effective solution for most skin types.

When Can I Expect to See Results?

Typical treatment protocol is 3 – 5 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart. The total number of required treatment sessions depends on your skin’s condition.

Does Sublative® Skin Resurfacing Hurt?

During treatment, many patients feel a warm, prickly sensation as energy enters their skin. After treatment a pink or red “sunburn” appearance is also common. Topical anesthetic ointments and cooling are used to reduce unpleasant feelings during treatment.

Are Sublative® Treatments Covered by Insurance?

Most insurance companies in Portland do not offer reimbursement for cosmetic and aesthetic procedures.

Syneron & Candela – two extraordinary brands, one global leader. Syneron has a remarkable ability to innovate the newest technologies in aesthetic medicine. Candela brings four decades of industry-leading scientific expertise. Together, these two brands offer “gold standard” technologies for advanced aesthetic solutions.
