Acne – EMatrix 2018-06-11T14:48:58+00:00


eMatrix laser skin resurfacing is an FDA-cleared treatment that gently resurfaces the skin over 4 to 5 treatments. It tightens surface loose skin, improves skin texture and reduces the appearance of mild to moderate wrinkles, acne scarring and abdominal stretch marks. It also tightens pores and brightens the skin.

eMatrix is truly unique because it’s the newest resurfacing laser treatment that achieves results one gets with more aggressive laser treatments, while avoiding the lengthy downtime associated with those more aggressive “sublative” procedures.

Patients today desire an effective and safe treatment for acne scars, and eMatrix is the best laser to do so. eMatrix has almost no downtime- just one or two days of redness. eMatrix uses fractionated bi-polar radio frequency to penetrate through the skin allowing more energy beneath the surface of the skin to really maximize collagen production while keeping the top layer of the skin intact. What also makes eMatrix the best and safest laser to treat acne scars is that it’s ideal for all skin types, including Asian, Latino, and African American skin.

What Is eMatrix™?

EMatrix™ is a sublative rejuvenation process that uses fractionated radiofrequency energy to heat deep layers of skin and improve many types of skin issues. Laser treatments also heat layers of skin, but the radiofrequency energy of eMatrix™ works a little differently, promoting collagen production rather than resurfacing the skin.

Additional Benefits

The eMatrix™ does more than Acne Treatment, and patients may enjoy other rejuvenating aspects of the treatment, including:

-Reduction in lines and wrinkles that may be present

-Smoothing of texture irregularities

-Improvement in under-eye circles

-Repair of sun damage and unwanted pigment

-Reduction of enlarged pores

eMatrix Before & After Photos

As if acne itself wasn’t bad enough, sometimes the after-effects can linger in the form of acne scars. Scarring is a common residual problem of cystic acne (the most severe and chronic type of acne), and without treatment, acne scarring won’t be going anywhere on its own. The good news is that today there are options for treatment that do not involve weeks of downtime, painful procedures, and high risk of complications. One of these modern treatments is a safe and effective technique known as eMatrix™.


Acne Scar Treatment

Collagen is what gives the skin its volume and vitality, but the body often cannot produce enough collagen on its own to repair the damage caused by acne. By choosing a series of collagen-producing treatments, the body has enough time to respond after each session and help fill in and repair scarring. While it is usually not possible to resolve all scarring in this way, significant improvement is usually possible.


Safe for All Skin Types

Laser treatments are often a risky choice for darker skin types, and may cause problems like hyperpigmentation. eMatrix™ on the other hand, does not affect the top layer of skin, and does not cause the same kinds of pigmentation problems often caused by laser resurfacing. While eMatrix™ may not be the appropriate treatment for all patients, it is generally safe and effective for all skin types.


Gentle and Non-Invasive

While many skin treatments require significant downtime, eMatrix™ is different. It is a minimally-invasive technique that involves only mild discomfort after each treatment. Skin is usually sensitive after eMatrix™, and may look pink and sunburned for a short time. There is minimal downtime, however, which allows even people with busy schedules to tackle acne scars.

How Many eMatrix treatments are required?
Each patient’s treatment protocol varies based on individual needs and results desired. Most patients will receive 3-4 treatments, each spaced four to six weeks apart. In some cases patients see results in just one treatment. The success of the treatments works by producing a new level of collagen formation and healthy cells are produced. Even though after one treatment you will see some improvement, the full benefit typically takes at least 3 treatments.
How Does eMatrix work and how long does it take?
eMatrix is a quick procedure which typically takes 10-20 minutes to perform depending on the area. There is little or no discomfort since we numb every patient with a topical numbing cream for 30 minutes before the procedure. Patients usually feel only a warm, prickly sensation, which is entirely normal. Immediately after the treatment patients will look and feel as though they have a mild to moderate sunburn. A little bit of redness, swelling, mild dryness, and flaking occur during the first two to three days after the procedure and will subside quickly. Once the patient leaves the office they are required to avoid sun exposure, retinol, avoid swimming, exercise, saunas and makeup for several days until the skin is back to normal.
What is the Treatment Process?
EMatrix™ treatments take only 20 minutes to perform in an office setting. The handpiece delivers bi-polar radiofrequency waves deep into the skin in a matrix format, which cues the body to create more collagen to repair the skin. Over time, the collagen will help heal and even out poor texture, skin tone, and acne scars. The acne treatment is only minimally uncomfortable, and improvement can usually be seen between the first and second treatment. It is generally recommended that patients undergo a series of treatments, usually three to four sessions spacedfour to six weeks apart for best results.
