e-Matrix is non-laser skin rejuvenation in Franklin, TN
Laser skin resurfacing has been a major advance in aesthetics in recent years. Yet it isn’t for everyone. Because the team at CoolSprings Laser, Aesthetic & Skin Care Center is committed to helping all patients achieve the best skin quality possible, they provide plenty of options. eMatrix is one of the latest, and it is quickly becoming the skin rejuvenation treatment of choice in Franklin, TN.
How eMatrix differs from lasers
eMatrix is not a laser. This device uses bi-polar radiofrequency (RF) energy, rather than light energy, delivered through a matrix of electrodes on the applicator tip of a mobile handpiece. The RF energy is fractionated into a multitude of pinpoints, harmlessly penetrating the surface of skin while inducing cellular rejuvenation at a deeper dermal layer.
eMatrix is described as “sublative,” which literally means “to take away.” Treatment is ideal for improvement in:
- Acne scars
- Other surface scarring
- Fine wrinkles
- Lax skin
- Irregular pigmentation
- Sun damage
- Rough texture including enlarged pores
Why eMatrix is so popular
The eMatrix sublative rejuvenation technique is safe and gentle. It can even be used on delicate skin around the eyes. It stimulates deep dermal correction, similar to laser therapies, but with minimal downtime. eMatrix is safe for all skin types – including ethnicities with genetic predisposition to hyperpigmentation, which can result in discoloration from laser treatment.
Depending on the area, a treatment session typically takes 20 minutes or less. The process is well tolerated, producing only a stinging sensation which can be alleviated with topical anesthetic. Recovery time varies with penetration depth and energy density level, since eMatrix is tailored to the patient’s skin rejuvenation goals. Mild treatment may result in a few days of redness and slight swelling. It can take about a week for light crusting to resolve from aggressive treatment. However, there is no restriction on activities during the healing period. In most cases, three or more treatments at four to six-week intervals are recommended for optimal skin rejuvenation.
