eMatrix Fractional Tunable Ablative Treatment
Forever Young MedSpa is the 1st facility in Florida and one of the 1st in the nation to carry the amazing new FDA approved eMatrix.
What does the eMatrix™ treat?
Fractional Ablative Skin Treatments Include:
• Wrinkles • Acne scar revision • Superficial skin lesions
• Scar revision • Textural irregularities • Skin laxity
How is Fractional Ablative Different From Traditional Ablative?
Traditional ablative resurfacing heats and removes the complete surface of the skin resulting in a longer recovery period. Fractional technology reaches deeper into the skin, but covers the skin area in patterns of dots instead of a broader area. The RF energy induces a skin injury which is maximized in the region of the matrix spots with an accelerated healing process supported by the non-affected tissue surrounding the matrix spots. This way, the treatment can produce much more effective color and texture improvement–with significantly less recovery time than traditional C02 full ablative laser resurfacing.
Though CO2 ablative (full skin removal) laser resurfacing has been the gold standard for non-surgical facial skin rejuvenation for more than ten years, it has limitations that include a prolonged recovery period (weeks), hypo-pigmentation (unwanted lightening of skin color), and the potential for infection that can lead to scarring.
eMatrix is a new technology that has a significantly shorter recovery period and less risk of complications.
The eMatrix fractional treatment is customizable to your skin type and has varying intensities ranging from
- Mild ablation & skin resurfacing with a shallow impact
- Moderate ablation & skin resurfacing with a mid-level impact
- Intense ablation & skin resurfacing with the deepest impact
What you need to know about eMatrix:
eMatrix is the world’s first radio-frequency only non-laser and non-light-based aesthetic procedure that is FDA-cleared to treat a range of skin conditions and skin types safely. The eMatrix fractional resurfacing technology now allows your practitioner to treat more skin problems with the same system, so you don’t have to go to different practitioners to receive a complete solution.
Skin resurfacing and rejuvenating technologies:
Today there are four kinds of skin resurfacing and skin rejuvenating laser and light-based technologies.
- Traditional skin resurfacing ablates (surgically removes) the complete surface of the skin.
- Non-ablative skin rejuvenation heats wide areas, but does not ablate the surface skin.
- Fractional skin rejuvenation does not ablate the skin but heats narrow and deep.
- Fractional skin resurfacing is the newest technology that uses a combination of ablation and heating in matrix dots across the skin with various levels of penetration.
How does eMatrix™ fractional skin resurfacing work?
Frequency energy is precisely directed to tiny matrix spots. The RF energy induces a skin injury which is maximized in the region of the matrix spots with an accelerated healing process supported by the tissue surrounding the matrix spots.
Post treatment, you may notice increased levels of beneficial collagen and new healthy skin cells are produced. Mild to moderate wrinkles and superficial skin discolorations are reduced, and the texture of your skin becomes smoother and more elastic.
Is fractional skin resurfacing right for me?
Treatment is a safe and effective solution for most skin types–check with your physician to see if you are a good candidate.
When can I expect to see results?
Typical treatment protocol is 1-3 treatments, 4-6 weeks apart. The total number of required treatment sessions depends on your skin’s condition.
Does it hurt?
eMatrix treatment is very tolerable. During treatment, many patients feel a warm, prickly sensation as energy enters their skin. After treatment a pink or red “sunburn” appearance and feeling is also common. Topical anesthetic ointments and cooling are used to reduce unpleasant sensations during treatment.
