eTwo™ is a device used for skin resurfacing. The sublative setting is used to improve acne scars, striae and various textural irregularities for a smoother, rejuvenated appearance of the skin.
The unique Sublative applicator delivers bi-polar radio frequency energy via a matrix of electrodes from the disposable Sublative iD tip. This fractional delivery of RF energy causes micro-epidermal ablative injuries with a wider spread dermal coagulation. This initiates a strong wound healing response in the dermal matrix while also minimising the damage to the epidermis. Less affected tissue surrounding the matrix points may be stimulated by heat which helps to accelerate the healing process.
Typical treatment protocol is 3 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart. The total number of required treatment sessions will depend on your skin’s condition.
During treatment many patients feel a warm, prickly sensation as energy enters their skin. After treatment a pink or red sunburn appearance is also common. Topical anaesthetic ointments may be used to reduce unpleasant feelings during treatment.
The application of iced water during the first few hours after treatment can reduce discomfort if any is experienced.
Mineral make-up may be used immediately after treatment unless there is epidermal blistering.
You should avoid sun exposure to reduce the chance of hyperpigmentation or darker pigmentation. You should use a sun screen with SPF50 at all times throughout the course of treatment.
You should avoid picking or scratching the treated skin.
You should avoid hot baths and heat treatments and treat the skin gently, as if you had sunburn for the first 24 hours.
