Day of treatment
Today I had my first Sublative treatment. I did not have numbing cream applied... my aesthetician said she did not use any during her treatment and she is a "sissy"...she felt I would be okay. She was right. I did hold the cold air blower on my face and moved it as needed, but honestly I was fine. It is 5.5 hours post tx and I have slight tightening in my face and neck, and a very slight hot feeling. Definitely not uncomfortable at all. In my magnification mirror I can see some grid marks but I don't feel they are really noticeable to the naked eye. I have a little swelling under my eyes, not bad, and a little in my chin area. She did a double pass (400 pulses) over my chin area and around my eyes. She used the 64 tip. She gave me moisturizer and cleanser to use as well as suncreen. I paid $400 for my face and neck and I will post more in the coming days.
I had my second treatment Oct 17. Btw, I did feel that unnoticed so e improvement in my skin after the first treatment but it took about 3.5 weeks before I did. The second treatment was a bit harder in the pain department but still no numbing cream was used. That night I looked like Freddy Freuger had drug his fans across my face... It was swollen in "lines" almost! She used a 44 tip this time so it was more concentrated, and the "downtime" was slightly longer than the first treatment.. The first day it was best to see no one, second day still a little scary, by the 3rd day much better... Redness was all but gone and a good foundation can cover it anyway. I do not see any changes yet from this treatment but I am not near the 3 week mark do that's okay. I swear after the first treatment my skin was tighter around my eyes, and my neck was much tighter! That was my worst place anyway so I was thrilled. My next right now is maybe the same or *slightly* worse. My tech told me this is exactly how her second tx went and then it got really firm. Her neck looks fantastic so l am confident it will work that way for me. I had a couple of breakouts which is a bummer, but it's just how my skin works, but nothing major. I am expecting better results after a couple more weeks so I will post again!
