Treatment For Acne Scarring

For most of us, we look back fondly at our teenage years – we enjoyed the sleeping in late on Saturday mornings, forming friendships and lots of time on our hands – but what we don’t miss are the acne breakouts that put a damper on our spirits and our self-esteem. You may still have memories of those breakouts, but you don’t have to have the scarring.

Ematrix – How It Works

eMatrix laser skin resurfacing is a FDA-cleared treatment that gently resurfaces the skin over 4 to 5 treatments. It not only reduces the appearance of acne scarring but it also tightens surface loose skin, improves skin texture and reduces the appearance of mild to moderate wrinkles. It also tightens pores and brightens the skin.

Sublative Rejuvenation For Acne Treatments

Sublative Rejuvenation is an alternative to laser treatments to reduce the appearance of acne scarring. Typically only 48 hours of mild downtime is required after the procedure. Because the treatment uses radiofrequency instead of light, the chances of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, a skin discoloration that can occur in patients with darker skin, are greatly reduced. Patients of all skin types can use sublative rejuvenation as an alternative to laser treatments for skin rejuvenation and acne scarring.

The eMatrix uses radiofrequency energy to heat and ablate below the skin’s surface, producing new collagen, and revealing smoother, brighter, tighter-appearing skin.

The eMatrix laser is FDA-cleared to deliver energy deep into the skin and uses the patient’s own collagen to remodel and restructure the target area. Unlike other fractional systems which use laser light to either heat or remove microscopic bits of skin (a process called ablation), the eMatrix uses radiofrequency energy to heat and ablate below the skin’s surface, producing new collagen, and revealing smoother, brighter, tighter-appearing skin.
