EMatrix is used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, folds, acne scars, skin laxity and other textural imperfections affecting. This Sublative Rejuvenation by eMatrix is an innovative laser treatment capable of restoring your skin’s natural beauty and glow in less than four to six weeks. Unlike other, more aggressive laser treatments designed to eliminate lesions deeply embedded in the skin, Sublative Rejuvenation minimally affects the skin’s surface layer as it smoothes wrinkles, scars and firms sagging skin. It is a safe and effective type of laser treatment that can be used on all skin types and colors.
Patients are given a minimum of three treatments in order to experience optimum results that need only once a year “maintenance” laser therapy following the initial procedure. Depending on the condition of your skin, i.e., extent of wrinkling or scarring, you may need more than three treatments. Application of the eMatrix laser beam is painless; patients report feeling a warm, prickly sensation when the light beam’s energy penetrates the surface layer of their skin. Following a session, patients often experience a slight sunburn and reddish coloring on the skin areas that were treated. This side effect disappears within a few days and any unpleasantly warm sensation can be reduced by using a topical anesthetic ointment.
About the Technology Behind eMatrix
Using an ergonomic applicator, the dermatologist sends radio frequency energy through an electrode matrix. This “RF” energy heats the skin layers enough to induce a healing response from the skin, which senses damage being done to the epidermis due to intense dermal heating. Tissue surrounding the treated areas that are not affected by the RF energy accelerate the wound healing response by increasing production of collagen and elastin. As a result of rapid healing, the skin quickly adopts a firmer, smoother and rejuvenated appearance.
Sublative Rejuvenation differs from other non-invasive skin treatments such as Fraxel and Thermage because the energy currents supplied by the applicator bypass certain skin layers and stimulate collagen production at the source. In addition, Sublative Rejuvenation is considered an intelligent technology because it allows dermatologists to receive feedback concerning the impact of the RF energy on targeted areas by viewing the procedure as it is happening on a screen.
