The FDA-cleared Sublime™ Applicator offers virtually painless and fast treatment for wrinkle treatment and skin contouring. Conventional skin treatments are time – and treatment – intensive and often too painful for many patients. With Sublime™, patients can have firm and contoured skin without surgery.

Sublime™ is ideal for targeting those telltale signs of aging, including sagging under the eyes, saggy brow lines, and nasolabial folds.

What is Sublime™/Refirme?

Sublime/ReFirme is an FDA–approved non–invasive, non–surgical procedure for restoring a youthful appearance and at Cahaba Dermatology, Dr. Groysman  is among the nation’s first physicians to use the Sublime Skin Tightening technology.

It uses a unique combination of two of today’s best modalities, bipolar radiofrequency and infrared light, to produce outstanding skin tightening with little discomfort and no downtime, leaving your skin free from potentially harmful side effects. Other systems using only one energy source can’t compare.

How Sublime™ works

Sublime™ combines safe and effective levels of infrared light and bipolar radiofrequency energies to remodel the dermal layer of the skin by stimulating new collagen growth. Sublime’s exclusive combination of energies provides ideal treatment outcomes with a very low risk of side effects and virtually no down-time. Sublime™ uses the combination of IR and Bi-Polar RF to provide controlled deep dermal heating. This predictable heating of the deep dermis both stimulates and shortens aged collagen fibers, resulting in the immediate and long term improvement of wrinkles and facial contour. Sublime/ReFirme is the safest, most effective and comfortable solution for the superior results you demand.

What results can I expect from Sublime™/Refirme?

Sublime/ReFirme uses two modalities to induce collagen contraction and new collagen production leading to softening of lines and wrinkles as well as visible skin tightening. A series of 5 treatments is recommended for optimal results. We will customize a skin care regimen to accelerate your results and help you maintain your improvements once you complete your series of treatments.

Who is a candidate for Sublime™/Refirme treatments?

Sublime/ReFirme is not a substitute for the traditional facelift but provides an outstanding alternative for patients who don’t want invasive surgery or aren’t quite ready for it. It is the fastest and most effective non–invasive treatment on the market for mild sagging skin, regardless of skin type or color, and can quickly restore the facial texture and contour of your youth. It is ideal for patients with a busy lifestyle who don’t want the expense, downtime, and risks associated with traditional surgery.

Anyone wishing to reduce or delay the signs of aging will benefit from this procedure. Sublime/ReFirme is an excellent addition to a superior facial rejuvenation regimen, which may include Botox, fillers, FotoFacials RF skin rejuvenation, and lasers.

Gone are the days when skin tightening meant going under the knife. Cahaba Dermatology uses BTL Aesthetic’s Exilis Ultra 360™ system to tighten skin and fine tune body contours.  The BTL Exilis Ultra™ is a non-invasive, non-surgical treatment utilized to tighten the skin for a youthful look. The BTL Exilis Ultra™ combines ultrasound and radiofrequency energies to help combat signs of skin laxity. Skin tightening with the BTL Exilis Ultra™ is much more comfortable and effective than treatment with ultrasound or radiofrequency energy alone.

How does BTL exilis system tighten skin?

The BTL Exilis Ultra™ delivers ultrasound and radiofrequency energies through a handpiece to the skin of the targeted area. These energies will travel beyond the surface of the skin to the deeper layers, where they will be absorbed into the body as heat. As the skin warms up, collagen production will be stimulated gradually working to tighten skin.

What parts of the body can exillis system treat?

Since the Exilis Elite 360 hand piece resembles an oversized marker pen, it can direct RF and ultrasound energy virtually anywhere. Common treatment areas for the Exilis system include:

  • Around the eyes
  • Above, below, and at the corners of the mouth
  • The chin and jawline
  • Along the neck
  • The décolleté area
  • Arms
  • Abdomen and love handles
  • Buttocks
  • The female pubic region
  • Legs, knees, and ankles

What can I expect from an exilis treatment?

The Exilis Ultra 360 system includes an energy flow control, so each treatment can be adjusted to the patient and their treatment needs. Varying skin tones often require adjustment of the device for the best results. Since the RF and ultrasound energy creates heat as the deep tissue absorbs, the hand piece also includes a cooling system to minimize any effect on surface skin.

Is the procedure painful?

There’s little to no discomfort with an Exilis treatment. The patient relaxes during treatment, lying down, and the sensation compares with that of a hot stone massage. Treatments are non-invasive and there are few, if any, side effects.

How long does the procedure take?

Each treated body part takes between 15 to 30 minutes in most cases, and 2 to 4 treatments, scheduled a week apart, are usually advised. Results appear after multiple sessions, and generally reach maximum results within a 3-month period following treatment.
