SUBLIME SKIN TIGHTENING How does it work? Sublime is a non-invasive treatment that can reverse signs of aging such as deep wrinkles, folds, droopy eyelids, jowls, and any general loose skin on the face and neck. The sublime applicator uses a combination of infrared light and radiofrequency to bulk heat the dermis, stimulating new collagen growth and causing the skin to tighten. On average clients require 3-5 sessions every 4-6 weeks.
