19 Apr Who are the Best Candidates for eMatrix Skin Resurfacing?
Syneron Candela is a world-renowned leader in minimally invasive dermatological treatments and offers a variety of technologies and treatment options. Known for their CO2 lasers, Picosecond technology, and sublative therapies, with so many skin resurfacing options available, it can be difficult for patients to determine which is best for them.
Laser Skin Resurfacing Types
Spectrum Dermatology offers a variety of Syneron Candela treatments and technologies, including eMatrix skin resurfacing. Syneron Candela is known for creating solutions for conditions that were previously untreatable via the latest technologies. The eMatrix skin resurfacing treatment is not a laser, but a “lighter” version of the Lumenis laser machine (another global leader in skin resurfacing technology, also offered at Spectrum Dermatology). It provides a full skin resurfacing similar to a laser, but gentler. It is designed for patients with light lines, minor scarring, and saggy skin.
Syneron Candela technology has received Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearances and can be found in more than 100 countries. Also known as “sublative rejuvenation,” eMatrix utilizes radio frequency for a controlled and effective fractional treatment. It can help with overall skin texture as well as minimizing pores. It has been compared to “Fraxel,” but is milder because it does not use lasers. The pulses create a minor skin injury in targeted areas to encourage new collagen production. Most patients need between three and five treatments.
Those with sensitive skin may want to avoid skin resurfacing therapy, particularly if their skin is not in need of more invasive procedures. The side effects of the device can include tenderness and redness, both of which will fade with time. However, eMatrix patients have reported less—and less severe—side effects compared to laser resurfacing. Enjoy minimal downtime with this Syneron Candela technology. Bear in mind that eMatrix is not for patients who are pregnant, have taken Accutane in the past six months, or who have metal implants.
Most patients report a noticeable decrease in acne scars, wrinkles, and fine lines post-eMatrix therapy. Overall skin laxity and tone will also improve. It often takes up to six months for the full results to show. Some patients combine eMatrix with Botox injections or fillers, as well as microneedling, to maximize results.
The best candidates for ematrix are those who want to avoid laser therapy while enjoying similar results for complete skin resurfacing. Schedule a consultation with Spectrum Dermatology by calling 480-948-8400.
