eMatrix™ Sublative Rejuvenation™
eMatrix™ Sublative Rejuvenation™ is one of the newer choices for skin rejuvenation from Sarasota dermatologist Dr. Elizabeth Callahan. All patients with a range of skin coloring and types can benefit from tighter and firmer skin without downtime – often after their first eMatrix treatment. If you would like to minimize your recovery period, multiple eMatrix treatments can give you results similar to our more powerful skin resurfacing treatments, with little downtime.
Healthy, beautiful skin begins at SkinSmart Dermatology®. Request a cosmetic consultation or call our office in Sarasota at (941) 308-7546.
eMatrix can improve the appearance and texture of your skin by treating multiple conditions, such as:
- Acne and acne scars
- Laxity and poor tone
- Rough texture
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Brown or age spots
- Enlarged pores
During your cosmetic skin care consultation at our Sarasota practice, we will thoroughly evaluate your skin to determine whether eMatrix or another skin resurfacing treatment like SmartXide DOT® or Fraxel re:pair® will best help you attain your aesthetic goals.
How it Works
Sublative Rejuvenation uses fractional bipolar radiofrequency (RF) energy to clear away sunspots and tighten the skin and stimulate collagen. The advantage of RF energy is that once it harmlessly penetrates the skin, it fans out to rejuvenate a wider area than a laser and it increases collagen production in the skin. eMatrix treatments are safe and effective for people of all skin types and colors.
A series of eMatrix treatments is required, and each one takes only about 10 to 20 minutes to complete. eMatrix treatments typically involve little discomfort and are often described as a warm, prickly sensation.
For optimal results, we recommend a series of three treatments, spaced six weeks apart; although your specific treatment protocol will vary based on the condition of your skin and the results you desire.
Recovery & Results
After treatment, your skin will likely look pink or red and feel warm like you have a sunburn. The pinkness will last one to two days. Because the treatment is non-ablative, you will be able to wash treated areas and wear make up the next day.
You will likely see results after the first treatment and your skin will continue to improve for up to six months post treatment. Because eMatrix renews collagen production, your lifestyle and exposure to the sun will significantly influence how long your results will last.
