Sublime Skin Contouring in San Diego, CA
To add to the list of our effective laser treatments in San Diego, we include the advanced Sublime skin tightening technology. With this revolutionary treatment, Dr. Christina Eros combines infrared light and electrical energy to remodel the skin’s dermal layer, thereby stimulating new collagen production.
The process helps lift skin and minimize pores. The laser treatment can reduce the effects of aging by tightening and lifting the skin in several areas, especially the face, neck, eyes, and abdomen.
This procedure allows patients to comfortably reduce aging signs to achieve a more youthful appearance without downtime. Cosmetic surgeons have used radiofrequency and laser energy separately for decades in performing surgical procedures. Our Sublime skin contouring in San Diego combines bipolar radiofrequency energy and infrared light to produce optimal anti-aging results.

The most common areas are the face, neck, eyes and abdomen. The heating procedure continues to work even months later. Some people may not qualify because their skin damage is too pronounced.
What Sublime Treats
Sublime treats multiple skin types for textural irregularities, loss of elasticity, sagginess, or laxity. Treatments are suitable for the face, neck, and other areas. Sublime skin contouring in San Diego can lift and smooth cheek contours, brow lines, neck, and jowls. The procedure’s firming and tightening effect can also correct skin texture. This is treatment non-ablative, which means it doesn’t penetrate the skin.
How Sublime Skin Tightening in San Diego Works
Sublime skin tightening combines two effective skin tightening approaches: infrared light and radiofrequency. With deep electro-optical heating, the skin tightens and contracts while promoting collagen remodeling. Collagen regeneration continues long after your procedure for continual skin tone and texture improvement, becoming firmer and tighter.
Most patients experience no side effects with Sublime skin tightening. Some may experience a brief reddening of adjacent skin. Still, there is little to no downtime with this revolutionary treatment – only plumper, smoother skin.

A complete Sublime treatment regimen requires three to five visits spaced three to four weeks apart. You can expect very minimal downtime, but every person is different. Your results may vary, but in general, you should expect to enjoy your results for several months before scheduling periodic touch-up treatments.
