eMatrix - Sublative Skin Resurfacing
At Dr Jamuna Pai’s Skin Lab, we test all our machines extensively for efficacy and results before introducing them to our clients. The eMatrix (sublative rejuvenation) is a state-of-the-art radiofrequency machine for skin resurfacing. It is a USFDA-approved treatment that gently resurfaces the skin. It improves skin texture and reduces mild to moderate wrinkles and acne scarring. It also tightens pores and brightens the skin.
What does eMatrix target?
Anti-ageing and reducing fine lines and wrinkles
How does it work?
The energy from radiofrequency keeps the top layer of the skin intact but produces significant changes below the skin by using heat to stimulate new collagen formation. Recent research shows this unique technology is effective for resurfacing treatment for darker skin types and for acne scarring and is much safer than traditional lasers. What really sets it’s apart is its ability to deliver results without the lengthy downtimes associated with more aggressive procedures.
What does the treatment involve?
The eMatrix device allows for customisation of the depth of ablation and degree of resurfacing depending on your skin condition. Our doctors will choose the appropriate treatment program after assessing your skin type and condition. During treatment most patients will experience a warm pricking sensation. Anesthetic cream may be applied to the treatment area 30-45 mins beforehand to ensure that the procedure is comfortable. The eMatrix treatment itself usually takes less than 30 mins per sitting.
Is there any downtime?
Downtime is approximately 48 hours with mild roughness remaining for 3 to 5 days—make-up can be applied after the first 48 hours.
How many sessions will I need?
Typically, clients need 3-4 sittings at monthly intervals. Although for deeper scarring, the number of treatments required and the frequency may differ.
When will I start to see results?
Your skin will appear refreshed and firmer almost immediately. But the results are progress with each sitting. You will enjoy the full extent of its efficacy as your skin continues to produce new collagen over 4-6 weeks following your initial session.
How long do the effects last?
For acne scarring, the results are permanent. Collagen and elastin production is stimulated in the deep layers of the skin resulting in a tighter, smoother, more refined and brighter appearance to areas treated. Results for skin rejuvenation can last up to 12 months after the final treatment when a proper skincare regime is followed.
