eMatrix Skin Resurfacing
The eMatrix skin resurfacing technique minimizes the appearance of skin issues, including scars left behind from the appearance of acne, stretch marks, and even discoloration from sun damage.
Normally, procedures that target layers of the skin under the outer layer use lasers to reach the chromophores responsible for scarring, discoloration, or skin damage. A chromophore is that part of the skin molecule that is responsible for providing color to the area.
The eMatrix skin resurfacing procedure uses radiofrequency energy to reach these chromophores instead of laser energy. Also known as sublative rejuvenation, this treatment projects pulsed radiofrequency energy to the target areas. The energy reaches deep within the layers of the skin, stimulating the healing process. New collagen is also produced using this method. The production of collagen enhances the healing by remodeling the skin to be clear and blemish free.
In this method, the cells and tissues surrounding the targeted areas are not damaged, making the treatment especially safe. The procedure takes only fifteen to twenty minutes to complete. However, depending upon the severity of your skin condition, it can take slightly longer.
In order to complete the whole process, you will need to undergo the procedure around three to four times. Results are usually immediately visible after a treatment, and you will see your skin improving with each consecutive treatment.
