Who Is It For?
eMatrix Sublative Rejuvenation is an FDA approved treatment suitable for nearly all patients. It will improve many different skin conditions.
The treatment is ideal for rejuvenation of the face. It will tighten the skin, improve the fine lines and wrinkles that occur with aging, and reduce pores. Patients can elect to treat their entire face or may choose to have a more limited treatment to a smaller area such as the skin around the eyes. The eMatrix can also be used to treat acne scars and other facial scars. In addition, the neck, chest, and hands can also be treated and this will reduce the skin crepiness in these areas.
Because eMatrix Sublative Rejuvenation is based on radio frequency energy and not on light, it is suitable for patients of all skin types and all skin colors, including the darkest skin colors. This makes the treatment extremely safe.
The downtime with eMatrix is usually very short, and depends on the settings used. Most patients return to work either immediately after treatment or the following day. Any redness subsides within 24 hours. There is no bleeding, weeping, or oozing from the skin. Those patients who require a more aggressive treatment may have their treatments done on a Friday and then return to work the following Monday. Patients can participate in decisions on how mild or how aggressive they want their treatments to be.
How It Works
eMatrix Sublative Rejuvenation utilizes radio frequency energy to improve the skin, and it works through a unique mechanism. The system delivers most of its radio frequency energy into the deep dermal layer of the skin while at the same time delivering only minimal energy to the top epidermal layer of the skin. This method of energy delivery stimulates collagen formation in the deep dermal layer and is very protective to the skin’s surface.
The radio frequency energy is delivered through a treatment tip that contains an array of tiny probes. This unique way of delivering the energy allows the treatment to be fractionated, which is very important for quick healing and rapid recovery following the treatment. This avoids the significant downtime of other comparable treatments. Optimum results are achieved on most patients after a series of three or four treatments.
During the treatment, many patients feel a warm, prickly sensation as the radio frequency energy enters their skin. After treatment, a pink or red “sunburn” appearance is common. Treatment of the entire face typically takes less than thirty minutes. Numbing cream may be applied before the treatment to improve comfort. Most patients will be able to put on make-up and go back to work the day following the treatment.
Patients experience significant improvement in the overall quality of their skin. The skin is tightened, wrinkles are reduced, scars are improved, and pores are less noticeable. The overall skin texture is smoother. eMatrix Sublative Rejuvenation enhances the skin’s brightness and patients enjoy the resulting increase in the skin’s brilliance and light reflectance. These changes result in smoother, brighter, and more youthful appearing skin. The typical treatment protocol is 3-4 treatment sessions given at 4 – 6 week intervals. The total number of required treatment sessions depends on the skin condition of the patient.
The improvement in the skin can be seen immediately after the completion of treatment, and the results continue to improve for the following six to twelve months. Maintenance treatments after the first year can help to further enhance the results of eMatrix Sublative Rejuvenation.
