Skin Tightening

What is it?

Sublime skin tightening is carried out using levels of near infra-red light and radio-frequency energies to provide a controlled deep dermal heating which remodels the skin.  As the skin ages, the lower part of the face, in particular, begins to droop around the lower part of mouth, jaw, chin and neck area.  The bulk heating of the dermis targets the collagen and elastin fibres, causing them to shrink, thus lifting and sculpting the face.  The dermal heating also targets fibroblasts, (cells that produce collagen and elastin) triggering them to produce better quality collagen and elastin fibres.

Results Achieved

Fine wrinkles are reduced, noticeable lifting can be observed on sagging skin and the texture of your skin becomes smoother, more luminous and toned. Sublime offers a fast & virtually painless solution for sagging and wrinkled skin. The precise heating of the skin ensures a safe and effective treatment with no downtime.

You will see gradual and cumulative results throughout your treatment regime with the following benefits; wrinkle reduction and smoother skin, improvement in skin laxity, tightened and firmed skin and an improvement in skin texture. It is proven and FDA cleared for Skin Tightening via Wrinkle Treatment.

The concentration of collagen fibres and the regeneration of the collagen and elastin deposits, tighten the skin layers creating a smoother, healthier and younger-looking skin.

Common Queries Regarding This Procedure

How does it work?

Sublime safely and painlessly heats the dermal tissue within the targeted treatment area.

The results which occur are two-fold. Initially there can be an instant lift due to the existing fibres in the skin that actually shrink and recoil, and a longer lasting effect by the stimulation of fibroblasts (cells that produce collagen and elastin).

How long does it last?

For lasting results a course is required and there has to be a maintenance programme. The skin is constantly renewing itself therefore it needs to be stimulated regularly.

For whom is it not suitable?

It is suitable for all skin types because it uses invisible energies.

Are there any cautions/contra-indications?

Skin infections

Cold sores

Can it be combined with other treatments?

Yes – it enhances aesthetic injectable treatments. Stimulated skin improves the quality of the skin, thus improving the ‘canvas' for injectable treatments to be more effective.

Is it sore?

The heat does build and we have to work with you on the balance of heat tolerance and getting enough energy in to achieve the result.

What is it used to treat?

Face, neck and jowls.

Is it safe?

Sublime skin tightening is a safe procedure.

Are there any risks or side effects?

It is important that treatment is not carried out on  newly tanned skin and also that retinol products are stopped 7 days prior to treatment.

What is the recovery time?

Occasionally there can be superficial swelling due to heat conducted but that settles in a day or so.


Continue skin regime as directed by your clinician.  It is also advised to wear adequate sun protection (minimum SPF 30).
