What is eMatrix Sublative Rejuvenation?
Sublative Rejuvenation with eMatrix is a unique procedure which uses radiofrequency to deliver an effective but controlled ablative and non-ablative fractional treatment for wrinkles, scars, large pores and better texture of the skin. Similar to "Fraxel" it uses radiofrequency (electrical) energy, as opposed to laser. Each pulse delivers the radiofrequency energy via a grid of matrix spots, inducing a skin injury which is maximized in these tiny, targeted areas. Fibroblasts activated within the “zones” signal collagen to regenerate and remodel, yielding improved skin tone and texture overall. Meanwhile, the surrounding “untreated” tissue then helps to support and accelerate the healing process in the skin.
What does the eMatrix address?
eMatrix addresses concerns with laxity (loose) skin, acne scarring (it is not recommended for active acne outbreaks), stretch marks (striae), and dull skin tone or texture.
Is there any downtime following treatment?
Patients may continue with their daily routine immediately after treatment; however the area will show small red dots that will gradually fade in 4-7 days. The patient should use a high-factor sunscreen (at least 30 SPF) and protect the treated area from sunlight during the entire course of treatment and for at least one month after.
Is the treatment safe?
The treatment has been shown to be very safe, with no significant side effects in all skin types.
How is eMatrix tolerated by patients?
During treatment, many patients feel a warm, prickly sensation as energy enters their skin. After treatment a pink or red “sunburn” appearance and feeling is also common. Cold compresses may be used at home after the treatment to minimize discomfort for the first 24 hours.
When can patients expect to see results?
After the treatment, patients may notice tone and texture improvements (tighter and brighter skin) as a result of increased levels of beneficial collagen and new healthy skin cells which are produced. Typical treatment protocol is 3 - 5 treatments, 4 - 6 weeks apart. The total number of required treatment sessions depends on the patient’s individual skin concerns.
Who should be treated with eMatrix?
eMatrix is a safe and effective treatment solution for patients of all skin types.
