Laser Resurfacing

SublativeRF Procedure and Treatment Video

I recently had sublative radio frequency treatment done on my face and décolletage performed by Vicky Filz of Shape Medical Center where I perform laser treatments a couple times a month. We thought it would be beneficial to video the procedure itself and my recovery.  

Sublative Radio Frequency is one of the hottest most revolutionary and affordable skin rejuvenation treatments in today’s cosmetic market. Post treatment, new collagen and healthy skin cells are produced. Mild to moderate wrinkles and superficial skin discolorations are reduced. The texture of your skin becomes smoother and more elastic.

Introduction:

This treatment reduces wrinkles, skin imperfections, texture irregularities, and more. Proven in clinical trials, SublativeRF provides deep dermal heating through radio frequency energy.

During Treatment:

Clinical trials revealed that 83% of patients experience significant improvement in skin brightness and 90% had significant improvements in skin smoothness and wrinkle reduction.


Post Treatment:
Imagine a treatment that can treat fine lines and wrinkles, and improve textural irregularities all in one sitting. Now, imagine you can achieve all this in a treatment that requires little-to-no downtime and is clinically proven for all skin types. This video is immediately post treatment.

Sublative RF Day 1 Post Treatment

Sublative RF Day 1 : It is still very warm and you can see the inflammatory response. This is exactly how you want to look. The inflammation creates a collagen response in the skin that builds a strong foundation in the dermis for anti-aging. You definitely don’t want to be out in public.

Sublative RF-Day 2 Monday- day # 3 post #sublativeRF, and I am back to work. You can see the difference from Friday. It is a quick healing and short down time. I am peeling now and you can still see the micro-pixelations which look like I pressed myself into a screen door. There is no pain. You may not wear makeup yet. You may resume all activities but must be especially careful outdoors. SPF is mandatory at all times. My skin is very dry and the little micro-pixelations are peeling off. You need to stay very moisturized.

Sublative RF-Day 2
See the difference a day can make. I do not feel any warmth in my skin now, it is just slightly uncomfortable. To care for my skin I am using #leafpeople aloe & lavender cleanser, clinical soothing mist, & rejuvenating balm. These products are formulated to help heal the skin post resurfacing procedures. They feel great. You probably don’t want to be in public yet.

10 Days Post CO2 Fractional Laser Resurfacing

Day 10 photos of post CO2 Fractional Laser Resurfacing.
My skin is just about back to normal with just a slight amount of redness remaining. The itching is still pushing my every little button, however, this is a good thing and it means the collagen cells are stimulated. On day 10 you can resume wearing makeup. You will still be using a lot of moisturizers on your skin because it feels really dry. You also need to be using your Sanitas Vitamin C Serum or Topical C and Pevonia Stem Cell Treatments on a daily basis. I recommend SPF 50 IS Clinical SPF. Your skin will continue to improve over the next 6 months. The collagen and elastin will increase, your skin will be plumper and tighter. Oh Yes!! This makes the last 10 days worth it. Please contact Skindeepgj.com if you have any questions regarding laser or skin care treatments. #Co2Laser, #Pevonia, #Sanitas, #laser Resurfacing, #laser treatmentspost co2 10

LED Red Light for Healing Post CO2 Laser Resurfacing

Day 4 Red LED Light Treatment for healing
Visible red light, at wavelengths from 630 to 700 nm penetrates tissue to a depth of about 10 mm. Light at this wavelength is very beneficial in treating problems close to the surface such as wounds, cuts, scars, trigger and acupuncture points, and is particularly effective in treating infections. Infrared light (800 to 1000nm) penetrates to a depth of about 40mm and deeper which makes it more effective for treating organs and provide relief for ailments of bones, joints, deep muscle tissue.

The diverse tissue and cell types in the body all have their own unique light absorption characteristics; that is, they will only absorb light at specific wavelengths and not at others. For example, skin layers, because of their high blood and water content, absorb red light very readily, while calcium and phosphorus absorb light of a different wavelength. Although both red and infrared wavelengths penetrate to different depths and affect tissues differently, the therapeutic effects are similar.

Superluminous LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) are safe concentrated light sources used to produce the specific wavelengths of light that provide therapeutic benefits of light therapy without adverse side effects. JO LED

Day 4, Post CO2 Fractional Laser Resurfacing

Nothing is better than laying down to sleep. Finally a proper lay in. At this point, you are still needing a lot of aquaphor and hydro-cortisone on your skin. During the night your skin will dry out and you will need to reapply the ointments. Welcome to day 4, post CO2 Fractional Laser Resurfacing.CO2 3

I am having a CO2 Fractional Laser Resurfacing-Follow Along

Today is the day! I will have the CO2 Fractional Laser Resurfacing.CO2 3 Ok, I am a bit anxious….I am a certified laser technician and I have performed many of these treatments. So, I know what I am in store for. I will be educating all of your who are curious and posting pictures throughout the process. Here is a list of how CO2 can benefit your skin.

First, the resurfacing laser will remove all the epidermal damage caused by sun and aging. With extreme precision the laser removes keratoses, premalignant lesions, age spots, and epidermal blemishes.

Second, the upper dermis is sculpted smooth by the laser. Deeper wrinkles are reduced or eliminated. Acne scars are reduced and re-contoured. New epidermis will grow from cells within the follicles that have never been exposed to the sun’s damage. This takes just four to five days. Thus, your skin is literally “renewed.”

Third, the laser stimulates the growth of healthy new collagen and elastin fibers within the skin. This will continue for six months after resurfacing. During this time the skin will continue to improve. Fifteen to twenty percent firming can be achieved. Loose eyelids and lax skin is tightened. Resilience and elasticity are restored. Any remaining wrinkles will continue to improve for over six months.

CO2 Fractional Laser Resurfacing

Have ever been interested in what Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing is? I will be having this procedure performed on me this week and I am brave enough to let those of you who are interested watch the procedure.
I will be posting on my business site www.facebook.com/SkinDeepGJ. This will be educational and a bit ugly, but who would be better to walk you through the process than your resident guide. Please follow SkinDeepGJ and I will post the procedure, what it looks like; feels like; and how long it takes to heal. CO2 resurfacing can erase years from your face and dramatically improve the appearance of wrinkles and pigment, but it is not a lunchtime procedure.Tiny wounds are made in mega pixels allowing the surrounding healthy skin cells to aid in the healing process. This will allow my skin to stimulate new collagen and elastin by targeting zones deep in the skin as opposed to the entire skin surface, fractional CO2 resurfacing is usually a one-time, treatment performed with local anesthesia. It offers improvement in wrinkles, discoloration and scarring be sure to tune in and check it out.
