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.
SUBLIME SKIN TIGHTENING TECHNOLOGY
Sublime Skin Tightening is one of the most exciting advancements in aesthetic dermatology today. Sublime/ReFirme is an FDA–approved, non–invasive, and non–surgical procedure for restoring a youthful appearance. And our own Dr. Vlada Groysman, M.D. is among the nation’s first physicians to use it. Commonly referred to as laser skin tightening, this procedure is a great alternative to plastic surgery for the face and neck.
Sublime™ is ideal for targeting those telltale signs of aging, including sagging under the eyes, brow lines, and “smile lines” around the mouth. It uses a unique combination of two of today’s best modalities—bipolar radiofrequency, and infrared light. This combination produces outstanding skin tightening with little discomfort and no downtime. Other systems using only one energy source can’t compare. Sublime/ReFirme is the safest, most effective, and comfortable solution available.

WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT FROM SUBLIME™/REFIRME?
Our Sublime™/ReFirme treatments use two modalities to induce collagen contraction and new collagen production. This leads to the softening of lines and wrinkles as well as visible skin tightening. A series of five 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 ideal for patients with a busy lifestyle who don’t want the expense, downtime, and risks associated with traditional plastic surgery. It 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. It can quickly restore the facial texture and contour of your youth.
Anyone wishing to reduce or delay the signs of aging and combat signs of skin laxity will benefit from this procedure. Sublime™/ReFirme is an excellent addition to a superior facial rejuvenation regimen, which may include wrinkle relaxing injections, fillers, Photofacial RF skin rejuvenation, hydrafacial, and ultherapy.
HOW DOES THE BTL EXILIS SYSTEM TIGHTEN THE 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 THE EXILIS SYSTEM TREAT?
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
- Abdomen and love handles
- The female pubic region
- Legs, knees, and ankles
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM AN EXILIS TREATMENT?
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 handpiece also includes a cooling system to minimize any effect on surface skin.
IS THE PROCEDURE PAINFUL?
As a non-surgical skin tightening procedure, 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. It is a non-invasive laser skin tightening treatment with 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 two to four treatments, scheduled a week apart. Results appear after multiple sessions, and generally reach maximum results within a three-month period following treatment.
