Avoid the routine use of anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen, naproxen and Celebrex for one month. The inflammatory response in your tissue from SublimLift Treatment works in a positive way to stimulate collagen fiber formation and remodeling.
If you are not already on a medically oriented skin care program, you may want to discuss this with your provider at the time of your treatment. Topical prescription skin products can help to stimulate collagen fiber formation through direct action with growth factors and through exfoliation to resurface skin. Medical skin care combined with treatments like SublimLift Treatment can maximize the results you obtain and help to maintain the results.
Schedule a follow-up medical assessment to review your clinical results and discuss the option of additional treatments to achieve desired outcome for this treatment site and other treatment sites.
Small and affordable follow up SublimLift Treatment sessions in targeted areas which need the most work can be very powerful to obtain the best result depending upon the degree of laxity prior to treatment.
Starlift applied medical skin care products are the number one way to enhance the result, as well as the duration, of a SublimLift Treatment. If you haven’t already discussed this with your provider, we are happy to develop a customized plan for your skin type at the time of your SublimLift Treatment.
The new collagen fibers which are formed as a results of SublimLift Treatment have a life span of 5+ years, however an optimal interval for retreatment will be sooner than that. Depending upon the severity of tissue laxity and your age, follow up treatment intervals will vary but there are two ways to approach maintenance – more frequent small touch ups and less frequent full treatments.
More frequent small touch up treatments are the best approach for achieving continued, ongoing collagen stimulus as well as cost affordability. Follow up SublimLift Treatment sessions are charged by the energy usage and therefore can be adapted to fit into most patients’ budgets. Frequency of touch ups will again vary but may be every 4-12 months depending upon the individual’s particular needs.
Less frequent full treatments are an alternative.
