eMatrix: The Ultimate Treatment For Smoother Skin
Age and sun exposure take a heavy toll on your skin. The most common visible signs of aging include problems such as wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin, dry skin, dull skin, rough skin texture, uneven skin tone, blotchiness, visible pores, hyperpigmentation, sun spots, and age spots. These age-related changes prevent you from looking and feeling your best.
But you don’t have to live with these signs of skin aging. A new skin resurfacing treatment called eMatrix can help restore the dewy smooth, glowing skin of your youth. Continue reading to learn more about this innovative skin rejuvenation treatment, including how it works and its key benefits.
What Is eMatrix?
eMatrix is an FDA-cleared device that uses two cutting-edge technologies – RF (radiofrequency) and IR (infrared). It is a non-surgical, non-laser treatment that gently resurfaces the skin to give it a brighter, smoother, tighter, more youthful appearance.
What makes eMatrix unique is that it can achieve results that are usually only possible with ablative lasers. Ablative lasers are a more aggressive method of skin rejuvenation and are associated with a lengthy downtime or recovery period. eMatrix achieves the same impressive results while avoiding the long recovery period associated with ablative skin treatments.
Another innovative feature of the eMatrix platform is the conical delivery of energy. The RF/IR beam directed on the skin surface is microscopic. As it goes deeper into the skin, however, it fans out and expands the area of action. This results in minimal surface damage and a larger treatment area. Ablative skin resurfacing methods, on the other hand, damage the skin surface to the same extent as the deeper skin layers. These treatments, therefore, require a longer downtime because the skin surface needs time to heal.
How Does eMatrix Work?
The eMatrix platform is one of the newest skin resurfacing treatments on the market. It performs what is known as sublative rejuvenation. The fractionated bipolar RF energy generated by the device is precisely delivered deep inside the skin. The target is the dermis (middle layer of skin). eMatrix delivers the energy to the dermis without disrupting the epidermis (upper layer of the skin). By bypassing the upper layer of the skin, eMatrix ensures there is no surface damage, which in turn keeps the downtime (healing and recovery) to a minimum.
The RF/IR energy is directed at the skin in a series of matrix patterns. This stimulates collagen and elastin production in the skin and begins an accelerated healing process. Collagen and elastin are proteins that give the skin its structure as well as its smooth, plump, youthful appearance. Simply put, eMatrix kickstarts the body’s natural regenerative processes at the source.
Notably, the increased production of structural proteins and healthy new skin cells continues for 3-6 months after eMatrix treatments. This means you continue to notice tighter, brighter, more refined skin for several months after your final eMatrix treatment.
What Problems Can It Correct?
eMatrix treatments can correct many of the common signs of skin aging and sun damage, including:

How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Sublative rejuvenation with eMatrix is a quick and comfortable procedure. The length of the session can vary depending on the area being treated, but it is usually short, around 15-20 minutes. A full-face treatment takes around 30 minutes. Most clients require 4-5 eMatrix treatments for optimal results.

What Are The Side Effects Of eMatrix Skin Resurfacing Treatment?
The eMatrix treatment itself feels like a warm, prickly sensation on the skin. There is little to minimal pain during the treatment. The downtime is 48 hours at most, during which time the skin might feel a little rough. Most clients can return to normal activities the same day. The treatment does not mess with your schedule at all.
