eMatrix Sublative Rejuvenation

Want to love how you look without makeup and in photos?  Over the years, skin naturally loses collagen and becomes a road map of life’s ups and downs.  Whether you have sun damage, acne scars, or fine lines and wrinkles, eMatrix™ can help restore your skin’s youthful look. Sublative Rejuvenation Treatments brighten, balance and restore skin vitality from the inside out. Experience improvement in the appearance of wrinkles, scars, age spots, and other skin irregularities. Your skin will regain its elasticity through collagen production.​​

Sublative Rejuvenation with eMatrix™ is a unique procedure which uses radio frequency to deliver an effective but controlled ablative and non-ablative fractional treatment that improves wrinkles, scars, large pores, texture and firmness of the skin.  Similar to “Fraxel” it uses radiofreqeuency (electrical) energy, as opposed to laser. Each pulse delivers the radio frequency energy via a grid of matrix spots, inducing a skin injury which is maximized in these tiny, targeted areas.

Fibroblasts activated within these “zones” signal collagen to regenerate and remodel, yielding improved skin tone and texture. Meanwhile, the surrounding “untreated” tissue then helps to support and accelerate the healing process in the skin. Usually a series of three to five treatments is needed for optimal results.

How Does It Work?

eMatrix™ technology provides a state-of- the-art Sublative Rejuvenation treatment through the application of radiofrequency energy.  Featured recently on The Rachael Ray Show and The Doctors, this treatment is a popular alternative to invasive face lifts.

eMatrix treatment is different in that it uses fractionated bi-polar radiofrequency to penetrate through the skin. Energy is delivered beneath the skin to maximize collagen production and stimulate cell growth, while keeping the top skin layer intact.

What To Expect​

Clients experience improvement in the appearance of wrinkles, scars, age spots, enlarged pores, and other skin irregularities.

Skin resurfacing results appear gradually. Maximum long-term effect is usually noted two-to-four months after the conclusion of treatments.

What Are the Risks and Side Effects of Sublative Resurfacing?​

Treatment discomfort is minimized by the application of a topical anesthetic one hour prior to treatment.

Following the procedure, you can expect to experience symptoms similar to that of a sunburn i.e., redness and mild swelling that may last a few hours to a couple of days.

How Will I Look and Feel After Sublative Rejuvenation?​

Most patients have redness and mild swelling for a few hours and up to three days following treatment.  Make-up may be applied immediately following treatment.

Tiny crusts develop in the treatment area which may last for five-to-14 days; these can be easily camouflaged with makeup and are often not noticeable after the second day.

Results will develop over time and with subsequent treatments. Full results can be appreciated at three to six months following the last treatment. One maintenance treatment is recommended every 6 months.
