Frequently Asked Questions
How does Sublative Rejuvenation with eMatrix™ work?
Sublative Rejuvenation with eMatrix™ is ideal for any skin type. Guests typically observe cosmetic improvement for acne scars, face wrinkles, creases, and general resurfacing. The treatment, a sub-ablation, refers to the microscopic fractional (non-invasive) holes it creates in the outermost layers of the skin through an electrical conductor. Each pulse administers a radio frequency, inducing a controlled epidermal injury in a targeted location. This controlled injury signals collagen to reform, improving total skin quality and smoothness. Surrounding, untargeted skin aids in the healing process by contributing as a model for treated skin to follow, as well as speeding up the regenerative process.
Is a Sublative Rejuvenation treatment right for me?
Because of a relatively quick recovery process, those with minimal downtime looking to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, facial scarring, and skin laxity are good candidates for Sublative Rejuvenation with eMatrix™. Most results are maximized in a period from 3 to 6 months after treatment, but are often observed immediately, depending on the guest.
What is the procedure like?
The procedure is moderately uncomfortable, but much of the discomfort is alleviated with a topical anesthetic applied before the treatment. Over-the-counter pain relief is acceptable for the time following the treatment to control any lingering discomfort. Guests should expect moderate redness and swelling that lasts up to 3 days following the procedure.
How many treatments will I need?
Typically, we recommend 3 to 5 treatments of Sublative Rejuvenation for optimal results. The process will be individually monitored, and progress can be assessed quickly following the first treatment.
What are the benefits of the treatment?
Benefits of the treatment include a noticeable improvement in skin laxity and texture. More specifically, guests may also expect reduction of creases, wrinkles, scarring, and other skin imperfections.
What can I expect after my treatment?
After the treatment, guests can expect up to 3 days of moderate swelling and redness of skin. After a few days, however, you will see progress, as smoothness and improved texture appears immediately following the reduction of redness. Sublative Rejuvenation works well in conjunction with microdermabrasion applications, which can help exfoliate, for maximum results.
Are there side effects?
Side-effects will be discussed one-on-one with your physician. But they are most commonly limited to redness and swelling of skin, lasting no more than a few days following the procedure. Some guests report dry skin immediately following their treatment. Minor side-effects can be appropriately treated with over-the-counter medication.
