If you are looking into aesthetic procedures to provide a more youthful face by smoothing wrinkles and boosting collagen production, look no further than eMatrix laser skin resurfacing (also called sublative rejuvenation). This quick and painless procedure can help you achieve the results you desire without a more invasive surgery or procedure. Below, we take a look at the ins and outs of eMatrix skin resurfacing including what it is, how it works, what recovery is like, and how you can book your first appointment.
Sublative rejuvenation (also referred to as eMatrix treatment) is a laser treatment that uses radio frequency to correct a variety of skin issues including wrinkles, scarring, texture and overall youthfulness. Sublative is different from other treatments in that it allows for deeper penetration of the skin, allowing the treatment to reach underlying areas and spur new collagen production. It’s also much less invasive than other laser treatment alternatives, so the recovery time is quicker.
During your sublative or eMatrix treatment, bi-polar radio frequency energy moves through the deeper layers of skin via a matrix—or a grid of 64 electrodes—through a special tip on the machine’s applicator. Using this method, the targeted skin is destroyed and the surrounding skin is left unharmed, which prompts the surrounding skin to begin assisting in healing the treated skin, spurring the production of collagen during the healing processes.
eMatrix Skin Resurfacing can be used to treat a variety of skin conditions including acne scarring, age spots, skin texture and tautness, fine lines and moderate wrinkles, and pigmentation issues. Patients experience minimal downtime compared to other similar procedures, and will see an overall improvement in not just the appearance of their skin, but in the texture and tightness of their skin as well.
What is the recovery like for Sublative eMatrix?
There is nominal recovery associated with this procedure—most people can return to their daily activities immediately following treatment. The first two days after undergoing Sublative, you may experience mild redness and swelling followed by dryness and a little flaking of the older layers of your skin. This is all completely normal and can be treated with a mild moisturizer.
What are the benefits of Sublative?
Sublative Rejuvenation is considered an “all-natural” treatment for wrinkles and aging, as it works to stimulate your body’s natural collagen growth from the inside. Another benefit is that the sessions are very short and relatively painless compared to similar procedures. Lastly, it’s safe and works on all different types, textures, and pigments of skin.
