FDA approved eMatrix™ is the newest advance in fractional technology used to completely revamp the skin from the inside out.

Radiofrequency energy is precisely directed to the skin through very fine points, and then it spreads out underneath where the collagen and elastin cells are. Healthy skin cells around the points accelerate the healing process of the skin both superficially and deeply.  Post treatment, new collagen and new healthy skin cells are produced. Mild to moderate wrinkles and superficial skin discolorations are also reduced. The texture of your skin becomes more smooth and elastic.

Unlike old technology like Fraxel™, this revolutionary way to deliver skin rejuvenating energy gives superior results with less discomfort and less downtime for less expense.  Before eMatrix™ you would have to disrupt the superficial layer of the skin to get the energy into the deeper layers where the real rejuvenation happens. This disruption was painful and created unnecessary damage which had visible downtime during the healing process. The skin ONLY looks dewy and youthful afterwards, no waxy look like you can get with Fraxel™ because of the vast difference in how much superficial skin is damaged.

If you look in the mirror and wish you had the skin tone and texture you had 10 years ago, this technology will do the trick with very little or no downtime. This is an amazing treatment for acne scarring.

Treatment protocol for maximum results is 4 sessions done 3-4 weeks apart.  You will see an improvement after the very first session.

When can I do this treatment? eMatrix can be done year round and is safe on all types of skin. We do recommend that after doing the treatment exposure to the sun is limited since we are asking the body to repair and build collagen and we know that sun exposure damages collagen.

How much downtime is there? Since we can customize the level of treatment to each individual, we can adjust the downtime to your needs.  Please see the photos for a maximum energy treatment.

How long does it take?  A full face treatment takes about 20 minutes.  Face and chest would take about 45 minutes.

Does it hurt? Unlike older fractional technologies like Fraxel, eMatrix is much more comfortable and in fact I don’t use any numbing cream when I treat myself. However, we do use a small amount of numbing cream on the face to further minimize any sensation during the treatment.

What is the cost? Full face eMatrix costs $1200 per session. If you buy 3 you will get the  4th for free.  Partial sessions like the undereyes start at $00.

When will I notice the results? The results from the eMatrix are 2 fold. You will see an initial rejuvenation at about 1 week after the treatment and then a second rejuvenation right around week 4.

How long will the results last? The results from the eMatrix are long lasting. We recommend a once or twice yearly single session to keep up the rejuvenation.

Why is it better than Fraxel and safe for all skin types?  To achieve the best possible results, the energy, whether laser or light, must be delivered below the skin without overheating the top layer of the skin. This has been the challenge with Fraxel and CO2 lasers because they work by overheating the top layer of the skin to the point of complete ablation (removal), forcing new skin to develop.
eMatrix uses fractionated bi-polar radio frequency to penetrate through the skin–sending more energy beneath the surface of the skin to really maximize collagen production–while keeping the top layer of the skin intact. This is an important factor in why it’s safe for all skin types.

As you can see in the above graphic, more of the superficial skin is disrupted in Fraxel type treatments which is what leads to more downtime. Also, as you can see in sublative (eMatrix) treatments all the heat goes right where healthy new skin is regenerated.
