Skin can be damaged from a number of factors, including sun exposure and aging. Fortunately, eMatrix is an option for treating brown spots, wrinkles, scarring, and much more. It is a type of sublative rejuvenation treatment using radiofrequency in a fast, comfortable appointment. Pulsed energy is delivered directly to the desired site for instant improvement. From reducing pore size to improving overall skin texture, eMatrix is a highly effective and popular solution for men and women of all ages. It is one of the most in-demand laser treatment options at Spectrum Dermatology, and part of the clinic’s suite of laser skin treatment options—eMatrix has been shown to reduce scarring from acne more effectively than any other laser.
Many clients benefit most from a customized approach to improving skin tone, texture, and laxity. In many cases, a number of lasers might be used to ensure optimal results. Laser skin therapy, including eMatrix, can also be coupled with other treatments such as microneedling, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections, chemical peels, and more. Everyone’s skin is unique, which means that every treatment plan should also be customized. However, eMatrix is recommended more often than, and in addition to, any other option at Spectrum Dermatology. It is fast, effective, comes with minimal downtime, and simply works on most patients.
The eMatrix laser has received clearance from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and works by encouraging a client’s own collagen production. Collagen and elastin are natural elements in the body that foster cell turnover, and are what make skin look young, supple, and healthy. We produce less collagen as we age, but there are ways to reverse this slow-down.
With eMatrix, collagen production is kick-started at the targeted sites. It is a laser treatment that works differently than other fractional lasers, which commonly use light and/or heat to expertly damage the skin. These processes are called ablation and can come with downtime. However, since eMatrix depends on radiofrequency to heat and ablate below the skin surface, surface-level damage is kept to a minimum while still giving clients skin that is tighter, brighter, and looks younger.
Sublative rejuvenation is an approach to skin laser treatments that has been linked to great success. It works by removing tiny pieces of skin below the surface level, which means minimal epidermis damage. Most clients are recommended to have three treatments within the span of three or more months. Improvements can be seen after the first treatment. It is an option that includes no healing wounds, no injections, and is completely non-invasive.
After treatment, the skin will have minute scabs, like a pinpoint prick. It may or may not be visible to the naked eye, but most clients immediately return to their daily activities. These tiny scabs might show up within 24-72 hours after eMatrix therapy. It is a common and normal side effect of healing. Scabs can last up to seven days, but are rarely noticeable. In some cases, skin might appear dry for one week following treatment. However, skin is usually completely healed from eMatrix treatments within three weeks. During the healing process, clients should avoid makeup, creams, and lotions with oil. You will be provided with a full list of information to maximize results and encourage healing.
