WHAT IS EMATRIX™?
eTwo™ is a treatment that uses radio-frequency energy (electrical as opposed to laser, which is light energy) to deliver an effective fractional and tightening treatment to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, pores and acne scarring.
Here at Khoobehi & Associates, our patients often ask us what the best methods are for skin rejuvenation.
There are a plethora of options on the market for meeting various concerns, but one of our favorite solutions for our patients of every age and skin shade is the eMatrix™ skin resurfacing laser. This laser treatment is FDA-cleared and utilizes several gentle treatments over the course of 3 – 5 months to resurface younger, healthier skin. It is a fantastic option for those patients who are looking for the results from more traditional, aggressive laser treatments (often called “ablative”) but who want less downtime and a more gentle approach while they achieve these same results. If you think eMatrix might be the right laser option for you, call our New Orleans, LA office today to schedule a consultation appointment with our skilled aestheticians.
How Is This Treatment Performed?
As can be expected with most laser treatments, your aesthetician will apply the eMatrix applicator to the surface of your skin and stamp the laser over the treatment area in a methodical pattern. You might experience a slight sensation of warmth and prickling, which is merely your body’s way of reacting to the laser and healing. Areas with scar tissue or hyperpigmentation may feel like “hot zones” or slightly more discomfort than others. In addition, your aesthetician may choose to leave some areas unaffected by the laser in close relation to the treatment site. Leaving healthy, untreated skin cells nearby will help to accelerate your body’s healing and regeneration.
What Should I Expect After Treatment?
In contrast to more aggressive laser resurfacing treatments, the eMatrix application and treatment process over time allows recovery to be relatively quick. You can expect some redness and swelling at the site of application for one or two days following the treatment, as well as some light itching as the skin heals. Please be sure to protect your skin using sunscreen and airy clothing to protect it from the sun as it heals. If you have sensitive skin and/or receive a high-energy level of treatment, you may wish to schedule four to five days out for yourself, as flaking of the healing skin can be most prominent in this time window.
How many treatments will I need?
Since eMatrix treatments focus on restoring skin over time and can use a gentle approach to do it, we recommend multiple sessions at lower energy rather than a single one at high energy for best results. Patients often need different amounts of visits, depending on their skin condition, their skin history, and other factors; however, our New Orleans, LA patients typically report their ideal results being reached in about 4 – 5 sessions. These sessions can be spaced anywhere from 4 – 6 weeks apart for achieving your optimum skin.
Where can I get eMatrix treatment?
The eMatrix tool is FDA-approved and has been said to be safe for use on the chest, face, hands, neck, and most other areas that our patients desire treatment around. You will want to discuss all of your ideal treatment areas in your consultation appointment. After this, your provider will discuss with you all of the viable treatment options and how to best approach your priority areas for treatment.
Do I qualify for treatment with the eMatrix?
eMatrix laser resurfacing is safe for use on any skin tone. This is in direct contrast to other lasers on the market that are more optimal for lighter skin tones. In addition, this laser can treat a variety of skin concerns, from aging to sun damage to acne scars and hyperpigmentation to stretch marks. As such, eMatrix is one of our favorite all-purpose resurfacing treatments that can apply to a wide range of patients’ skin and concerns.
