Imagine a treatment that can treat fine lines and wrinkles, improve the appearance of acne scars and stretch marks, improve textural irregularities and broken blood vessels, treat brown spots and sun damage, and tighten skin–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. Introduced in the Summer of 2009, Sublative Rejuvenation™ using eMatrix™ is breaking new grounds in the field of cosmetic medicine by offering a NEW treatment light-years ahead of current skin rejuvenation options. Dr. Tanne was the first physician in New Jersey to introduce this exciting and effective treatment. Using this fractional “laser skin resurfacing” technology provides all our our patients the opportunity to see excellent results!

Are Skinhibitions holding you back?

There comes a point in every woman’s life when no amount of beauty products or water consumption will bring back the dewy, supple skin of her youth. Most of them will try anything regardless, relying on an arsenal of techniques that range from the uncomfortable to the unthinkable. They quickly find that repeated slapping, hanging upside down and crusty green masks stimulate nothing but laughter from whomever they live with.

Ironically, these women—who are so willing to try everything—have an overwhelming fear of professional skin treatments that promise real results.

About 75% of women report being unsatisfied with the appearance of their skin: they desire a cosmetic procedure that delivers results, but have legitimate fears about pain, downtime, side effects and costs. Their Skinhibitions are holding them back. Sublative delivers effective results while eliminating the aforementioned apprehensions. Radiant, lifted skin is achieved without a needle or knife, without downtime and without the high cost of surgical techniques.

A broad range of patients seek Sublative treatment, from mature women who desire a lifted look to 30-somethings who want to take their beauty routine above and beyond antioxidant serums and creams. A significant number of women are starting their anti-aging efforts sooner in an effort to slow the inevitable.

In your 20s

Active oil production gives skin its dewy glow but also causes breakouts and, as a result, acne scars. Wearing protective armor, such as sunscreen and eye cream, and adopting a healthy lifestyle are the first steps toward preserving a youthful appearance. Avoid partying into the late hours, smoking, sun tanning and yo-yo dieting—the cumulative effects will show up later in life.

In your 30s

The skin is slower to “bounce back” after a night without sleep or too much alcohol. Collagen production, cell turnover and oxygen flow have slowed and it’s starting to show in the form of dullness and fine creases. Other physical changes include enlarged pores, deeper expression lines, broken capillaries and puffiness or dark circles under the eyes. At this stage skincare becomes more specialized but are incapable of doing the “heavy lifting.”

In your 40s

It suddenly takes a lot more work to look the way you want. Once women hit 40, it’s easy to tell who’s been taking care of their face and who hasn’t. Skin is drier, thinner and less firm because lipid and estrogen levels have dropped. Loss of elasticity means skin is losing its bounce and fluctuating hormones can still cause occasional breakouts.


In your 50s +

It’s never too late to start taking care of your skin. At this stage, topical treatments – combined with a healthy lifestyle – still have plenty of wrinkle-fighting promise. However, they can’t replace doctor’s office procedures when it comes to eliminating serious sun damage and sagging.

Sublative rejuvenation is a new kind of safe and effective cosmetic technology that works on virtually all skin tones.

It is neither laser- nor light-based. Instead, it harnesses the power of fractionated bi-polar radiofrequency to deeply penetrate the skin and stimulate collagen production beneath the surface while keeping the outer layer of skin intact.

Unlike other non-aggressive procedures like Botox, fillers or chemical peels, Sublative works from within, to treat sagging skin, and activate the production of new collagen.

Physicians have long used different types of energy to stimulate collagen and tighten the skin. Although considered non-surgical, Titan, Thermage and Fraxel are aggressive procedures that require weeks of downtime. In essence, they overheat the top layer of skin to the point of complete ablation (removal). This forces new skin to develop, but the process is slow and painful. The number of people whose skin visibly responds to the treatment is much lower, as these treatments are not recommended for all skin types due to possible complications.


Sublative produces the same kind of results as aggressive procedures without the pain, downtime, side effects or cost. There is no visible injury to the skin’s outer layers. Focused energy currents are applied to the skin in a matrix, bypassing upper layers of the skin and stimulating the natural production of collagen at the source. This “resets” the body’s regenerative process, which is why results continue to improve over time.Gentle heat is delivered at the underlying connective tissue where the skin joins the muscle—the same layer that is tightened during a conventional facelift. This tissue is gently heated, causing it to contract and eventually lift. As a result, formerly loose skin appears subtly tightened.

WHAT TO EXPECT


Sublative results are immediate and continue to improve over the course of a few months.

  • Improved elasticity
  • Improved radiance
  • More lifted
  • More even tone
  • Smoother, more supple texture
  • Fewer acne scars, discolorations and sun damage

Sublative is an intelligent technology. Doctors are able get feedback on how the energy is impacting the underlying layers of skin on a screen during the procedure, so the treatment can be precisely targeted. Radio frequency waves penetrate the skin through small pin holes to stimulate collagen growth from the inside.

Sublative sessions are less than one-hour long. For optimum results, 3 to 4 visits are advised 4-6 weeks apart. Each treatment produces incremental improvements to the gradual formation of collagen and, as a result, gradual improvements to your appearance. The total number of sessions depends on your skin’s condition. As energy enters the skin, some patients experience a warm, prickly sensation comparable to a rubber band snap, depending on the areas treated and energy settings. A red or pink flush resembling a mild sunburn is common after treatment.Topical anesthetic cream is used to reduce temporary discomfort during treatment. Most patients report no serious after-effects like crusting or peeling and go back to work as usual following treatment.

I recently had a series of treatments performed by Dr. Tanne to improve the texture of my skin. At age 50, I was not happy with the crepey, wrinkled look that I was starting to get. Dr. Tanne recommended a series of FotoFacial RF treatments for the brown spots, and also eMatrix to work on the texture problems. She calls this combination FotoMatrix. I had three treatments (one a month), and now my skin looks amazing – luminous and smooth. One of the best things about this was that I didn’t have to take time off from work, and was able to wear make-up the next day. people now compliment me on how great my skin looks and I am thrilled. Thanks Dr. Tanne.

1How does Sublative™ work?
The ergonomic Sublative™ applicator delivers bipolar radio frequency energy via a matrix of either 64 or 44 electrodes in the disposable applicator tips. The RF energy generates fractional deep dermal heating in the region of the electrode matrix to induce skin injury, thus eliciting a wound healing response. Mild to moderate wrinkles and superficial skin discoloration are reduced, and skin texture becomes more smooth and elastic.
2How is the Sublative™ treatment tolerated by patients?
During treatment, many patients feel a warm, prickly sensation as energy enters their skin. After treatment a pink or red “sunburn” appearance and feeling is also common. Topical anesthetic cream is used to reduce discomfort during treatment.
3When can patients expect to see results?
Post treatment, they may notice tone and texture improvements as a result of increased levels of beneficial collagen and new healthy skin cells which are produced. With the treatment’s dermal impact, mild to moderate wrinkles and superficial skin discolorations are reduced. Typical treatment protocol is 3 to 4 treatments, 4 – 6 weeks apart. The total number of required treatment sessions depends on the skin condition of the patient.
4Is everyone a good candidate for Sublative Rejuvenation?
Sublative Rejuvenation is the only fractional treatment that can be used on all skin types. Some skin conditions (such as eczema) may prohibit patients from receiving the treatment. Consult with Dr. Tanne to determine if Sublative Rejuvenation is right for you.
5What results can be expected?
Patients can expect a noticeable reduction of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks and other scarring, brown spots, sun damage and fine broken blood vessels. In addition, patients will see an improvement in texture and skin laxity. On average, most results appear over a period of three to six months, but some patients notice results immediately after treatment.
6What happens after eMatrix Sublative Rejuvenation?
Most patients have mild redness and swelling for a few hours after the treatment. You may apply make–up to the treated area after the Sublative Rejuvenation procedure. Results will develop over time and with subsequent treatments. Full results can be appreciated at three to six months following the last treatment. Maintenance treatments may be necessary to maintain the results.
7Can this be combined with other treatments?
The eMatrix Sublative Rejuvenation may be combined with many other cosmetic treatments in our office such as FotoFacial, ReFirme Skin Tightening, Neuromodulator (Dysport/Botox/Xeomin) treatment and Injectable Fillers. Many patients choose to undergo combination treatments in order to achieve the maximum aesthetic result.
8What is the cost of Sublative Rejuvenation™ using eMatrix?
The cost of Sublative Rejuvenation is based on a recommended treatment plan. Please call Nicole, our Front Desk Coordinator, to schedule a complimentary consultation.
9What makes Sublative Rejuvenation different from other aggressive fractional devices?

Patients today desire face-lift-type results, yet do not want the weeks--to even months--of downtime associated with those treatments. Aggressive fractional laser skin resurfacing treatments also come with limitations on the range of skin types that can be treated, due to the high risk of skin discoloration. Although classified as an aggressive treatment, Sublative Rejuvenation is unique because it delivers optimal efficiency with minimal downtime at an affordable price point--and it's safe for ALL skin types.

Traditional Fractional vs Sublative Rejuvenation
“I have had acne scars since I was a teenager. I am now 28 years old and getting married next year. I have always wanted smooth skin and especially for my wedding. I read about cosmetic Laser MD and found out, that they were using the eMatrix to treat acne scars. I have olive skin, so some of the other treatments out there weren’t going to be safe for me. Also, I work fulltime, and since I am saving vacation days for my honeymoon, I didn’t want to take time off just to let my skin heal. Dr. Tanne told me all about my options, and especially about the eMatrix which she said is safe for darker skin. She told me that although some people only need three treatments, that for acne scars it usually takes four visits. I decided to have it done and now I really feel that my skin has a much more even, smooth texture. I used to wear really thick makeup every day, and now I can go out with almost no makeup and feel great about the way my skin looks. My wedding is in two months and I am really thrilled with the way this helped my skin. Everyone at Cosmetic Laser MD was very knowledgeable and helpful. I never had to wait when I arrived for my appointment, and always felt that they really cared. Thank you so much.”
