eLōs Sublime Skin Rejuvenation


Red Carpet Face Lift

Many patients are now opting to use eLōs Sublime Rejuvenation for their “quick fix” or “lunch time treatment” skin rejuvenation solution because there is no down time and it can be completed in less than an hour. Sublime technology is known by the nickname “Red Carpet Facelift” because of the immediate lifting, plumping, and tightening effects without downtime. The long-term benefits of improved tone and lift improve all aspects of the signs of aging. Dr. Hardesty and his team at Imagine Plastic Surgery offer various skin rejuvenation technologies and treatment plans and we want you to see and feel the difference in your skin after receiving the Sublime Rejuvenation Procedure.

What is eLōs Sublime Rejuvenation?

The eLōs Sublime treatment is a skin rejuvenation treatment that can treat all skin colors and tone and helps to make your skin look younger, healthier, and smoother. It features the revolutionary eLōs combination of Bi-Polar Radio Frequency and infrared light energies to precisely heat the dermal tissue within the targeted treatment area. This energy stimulates collagen production and contracts elastin fibrils, resulting in an immediate lift with long term production of collagen. Wrinkle appearance is reduced, subtle lifting can be seen, and your skin’s texture improves by becoming tighter, smoother, more vibrant, toned and without enduring any downtime! Dr. Hardesty and his team help you not only “Imagine the difference” but actually “see and feel the difference” in your skin by undergoing the eLos Sublime Rejuvenation procedure. Dr. Hardesty provides his patients with various technologies and treatment plans to help his patients obtain the aesthetic improvement they desire, thus “One Goal, Many Options.” By offering alternatives and cosmetic procedures he ensures that he is giving his patients optimal results.

The eLōs Sublime Procedure

This safe, effective “no down time” procedure gives patients healthy, glowing, and younger looking skin. As we age, the skin naturally loses collagen, becomes lax and starts to droop, resulting in unwanted wrinkles and sagging skin. Dr. Hardesty and his team are ready to help you address all of your skin concerns. If you are unsure if treatment will be beneficial, Dr. Hardesty will determine that at the time of your consultation. Sublime treatments promote the production of collagen. The Sublime Rejuvenation procedure is not intended to resurface the skin but rather to tighten and contour the skin. The Sublime Rejuvenation is designed to work from the inside out. Sublime Rejuvenation combines the technologies of bi-polar RF energy and deep infrared heat to penetrate through to the dermal layers of skin, in order to create new collagen and elastin.

Uniquely, and in contrast to the way pins puncture the skin in Sublative Rejuvenation treatments, the Sublime Rejuvenation topically heats tissue deep within the dermis. Causing the skin to produce more collagen and elastin under and within the skin tissue. In turn, skin becomes more naturally firm, tight, and smooth. Regular treatments will result in noticeable improvements that can last for months after each treatment. Since the procedure is non-invasive, these results are obtained without disrupting the superficial layer of epidermis. Unlike other popular methods of skin procedures, Sublime Rejuvenation Treatments allows you to achieve the subtle, lifted, contoured look you’ve always wanted with zero downtime.

What to Expect During Treatment?

Just prior to the procedure, your skin is cleansed, protective eyewear will be applied, and cold water-based gel will be smoothed onto the skin’s surface. No anesthesia is required. Most patients describe a warm sensation as infra-red light and the radio frequency energy enters their skin. It is often described as feeling like a hot stone massage. The procedure is quick and takes 30 to 60 minutes to treat the entire face.

eLōs Sublime Recovery

Before undergoing the treatment, Dr. Hardesty will provide you with detailed instructions for pre-operative as well as post-operative care. After the treatment, most patients feel a tiny bit of warmth in the skin, which usually diminishes in about 1 to 3 hours. There may be a slight redness in the treatment area, as well. You can return to your daily activities immediately following treatment. Most patients see gradual and cumulative results in at least a minimum of 4 treatments, 3-6 weeks apart is usually required for optimal results. This time frame and treatment structure allow for complete healing and production of new collagen to replace damaged tissue. Regular intermittent maintenance treatments are recommended.
