SUBLATIVE RF TECHNOLOGY

Acne Scars Backgrounder

Sublative is the only technology proven to reduce moderate to severe acne scars for all skin types. The Sublative™ RF applicator is designed to deliver radiofrequency energy to the skin in a fractional manner, via an array of multi-electrode pins. The array delivers bipolar RF energy to the skin. Microscopic zones of epidermis and dermis are thermally ablated in a grid over the skin surface, where non-ablated zones serve as a reservoir of cells that promote rapid healing. 

Sublative Mechanism of Action

The Sublative RF applicator is designed to deliver radiofrequency energy to the skin in a fractional manner, via an array of multi-electrode pins. The array delivers bi-polar RF energy to the skin.

Ablation
Removal of material from the surface of an object by vaporization.
Acne scars
Appears in some patients as a result of the healing process of acne.
Bi-polar RF
Radiofrequency energy transmitted from two electrodes to a single target. The electrical circuit in this case runs between the two electrodes, thus maintaining control over energy’s depth of penetration.
Coagulation
The process of changing from a liquid to a gel or solid state by a series of chemical reactions.
Collagenesis
New collagen formation.
Denaturation
A structural change in macromolecules caused by extreme conditions.
Dermis
A thick layer of supportive connective tissue below the epidermis.
Epidermis
The outer layer of the skin.
Post-inflammatory pigmentation
Darkening of the skin pigment due to increased amounts of melanin, usually occurs during the healing process after treatment of skin of darker skin types.
Radio Frequency (RF)
A frequency of electromagnetic radiation in the range at which radio signals are transmitted, ranging from approximately 3 kilohertz to 300 gigahertz.
Striae Albae
Chronic stage, characterized by white or hypo-pigmented, atrophic Striae.
Striae Distensae
Striae or stretch marks are areas of skin that look like bands, stripes, or lines. They first appear as reddish or purple lines, but tend to gradually fade to a lighter range.
Striae Rubrae
The acute stage characterized by raised, erythematous Striae.
