What do you think about sublative rejuvenation? It claims to promote collagen growth.

What do you think about sublative rejuvenation? It claims to promote collagen growth.

I’m glad you asked about this because there are a couple of good issues that you raise.   The first is about collagen growth.  All laser and radiofrequency (sound wave) technologies work in part by stimulating collagen growth.  It’s really not something unique to that particular system.  The question really is more about which systems do it best and with what end result.  This system really has no claim to doing it better and, because it’s relatively new, is relatively unproven.  If it were my money, why not go for a system with a longer, proven track record?

Also Syneron, in my opinion, doesn’t have the greatest track record as a company.  They tend to try to do “combined” or “new” technology systems of limited or unproven benefit.  These systems are easier for their marketers to market but can be of limited value to consumers and doctors. (Look up their old “Galaxy” system.)

Also, I found the “before and afters” on their site uninspiring.  I think most of us view photos somewhat skeptically because they are so easy to alter now.  For one of their photos, they chose a women who clearly had active acne.  In the after photo, the acne was gone and so of course she’d look better – odd to choose that photo!  Hope this helps.  Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
