What is eMatrix?
eMatrix is one of the latest resurfacing laser techniques that can deliver results similar to more aggressive laser procedures but without being so invasive in its approach. eMatrix is an FDA cleared laser skin resurfacing treatment that will gently resurface the skin over four to five treatments.
eMatrix procedure is designed to tighten the loose skin on the surface, enhances skin texture, and mitigates the effect of mild to moderate wrinkles and fines, acne scars, and abdominal stretch marks. Enlarged pores can be tightened, and the skin appears more radiant after this treatment.
One of the key advantages of eMatrix over more aggressive or ablative laser procedures is that it will avoid the prolonged downtime associated with such procedures. That makes it ideal for working people and busy moms who typically want treatments that can fit into their busy lifestyle and work schedule.
The foundation of the sublative rejuvenation achieved with eMatrix is the radio frequency (RF) energy and how that energy is delivered. During the procedure, controlled heat is generated below the skin surface without causing damage to the top layer of the skin. The heat energy helps to trigger fresh production of collagen and elastin fibers in the deeper layers of the skin.
This allows for the emergence of tighter, smoother and brighter appearance of the skin in the treated areas. Results are more sustainable and natural looking because the impact is created from within the deeper tissue. Results continue to establish over a few months, and can be maintained with annual treatments.
Downtime involved is about two days, but mild roughness in the treated areas can persist for about three to five days. Patients can apply makeup after the first 48 hours to camouflage the initial effects on the skin.
Experienced plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin receive patients from Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredricksburg, and nearby areas for eMatrix laser resurfacing.
How does it Work?
Optimal outcomes with non-surgical laser or light based treatments can be achieved when the energy penetrates into the deeper skin layers without overheating the top skin layer. More aggressive procedures are hampered by this limitation because they will tend to overheat the top layer to the point of total ablation or removal, forcing new skin formation.
Sublative rejuvenation in case of eMatrix makes use of fractionated bi-polar radio frequency to penetrate through the skin, delivering more concentrated energy under the skin surface to maximize collagen formation, while keep the top skin layer intact all the time. Therefore, the procedure becomes safe for all skin types, and is less invasive, requiring a shorter amount of time for the skin to heal.
