Syneron eMatrix provides effective skin rejuvenation using the latest radiofrequency technology. The innovative sublative procedure takes fractional skin resurfacing to the next level, allowing us to treat a wide range of skin concerns with minimal discomfort or downtime. The procedure is offered by Skin and Body Solutions to reduce the appearance of minor skin imperfections and restore skin to its youthful vitality.
What is Sublative Rejuvenation?
The Syneron eMatrix uses an innovative process known as sublative rejuvenation to provide superb skin rejuvenation results. Fractional radiofrequency technology is delivered in a bi-polar format to target heat energy into the dermis in a grid-like pattern. This process produces a controlled skin injury in a targeted area, without damaging surrounding skin or tissue.
The skin injury triggers the body’s own healing process, stimulating the body to produce much-needed collagen and elastin. These substances are produced in abundance during our younger years, giving skin the support it needs to maintain a smooth, supple appearance. As we age, we produce less collagen and elastin, leading to skin laxity and the appearance of fine lines and facial wrinkles. By restoring these substances through an eMatrix procedure, we can produce a more youthful appearance without the need for a significant recovery process.
Candidates for eMatrix
The eMatrix procedure is appropriate for addressing a wide range of skin concerns in patients that are:
- In relatively good health and want full skin rejuvenation
- Concerns about the early signs of aging (fine lines, skin laxity)
- Unhappy with residual acne scarring
- Wanting to eliminate age spots and other types of hyperpigmentation
- Realistic about what this procedure will – and won’t – do for them
At Skin and Body Solutions, we may recommend eMatrix treatments for the following concerns:
- Fine lines and facial wrinkles
- Shallow scarring from acne and chicken pox
- Skin laxity
- Sun damage
- Irregular pigmentation or pigmented lesions
- Uneven texture or skin tone
About the Procedure
An eMatrix treatment is relatively quick to perform and fairly painless when a topical numbing cream is used prior to the procedure. A handheld device with two small prongs is used to deliver the RF energy without incisions or punctures to the skin. The RF energy penetrates the skin’s surface to being working in the underlying skin structure for long-lasting results.
The procedure may take 10-30 minutes to complete, depending on the size of the treatment area. Application of topical numbing cream prior to treatment will extend the length of the session. After treatment, the skin may be red and slightly swollen, much like a sunburn. This side effect subsides for most patients within 2-3 days.
Makeup can be applied immediately after treatment and you can return to your regular activities as soon as you like. Some patients like to take a few days off after the procedure to allow their skin time to return to normal. Positive results can be seen within a few days and continue to improve in the weeks following the procedure. Most patients will need a series of treatment sessions to achieve full desired results.
