Candela's Sublative radiofrequency (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 fractionated bi-polar RF energy into the upper dermis. 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 and encourage the collagen production, with minimal epidermal disruption.
Sublative technology is used on Candela's devices to treat:
Candela's Sublime technology is invented for a safe and gentle fine line treatment. Sublime combines bi-polar radiofrequency and light energies of elōs® technology to precisely heat the dermal tissue and stimulate production of collagen within the target treatment area. The deep dermal layer of skin is remodeled, fine wrinkles are reduced, facial contours improved, and overall skin quality reveals a much smoother, more even complexion.
