E2/E Matrix Resurfacing (Syneron)
Experience beautiful rejuvenation with eMatrix skin resurfacing in Manhattan
If you are like millions of other adults, you have likely noticed the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on your face and other areas. Perhaps your skin has begun to loosen and sag with age or you have scars that you wish to minimize. If such concerns affect how you feel about your skin, you may benefit from eMatrix skin resurfacing with Manhattan dermatologist Dr. Ron Shelton.
What is eMatrix skin resurfacing?
This unique procedure is also called sublative rejuvenation, a technique for fractional resurfacing that includes radiofrequency energy. The controlled nature of radiofrequency treatment can achieve non-ablative or ablative results designed to reduce the appearance of mild to moderate scars, wrinkles, rough texture, and large pores.
Fractional resurfacing with eMatrix is a process through which ultra-fast pulses of radiofrequency are delivered to the skin in a grid pattern. The tiny spots, or micro-injuries, produced in the skin maximize the body’s innate healing abilities. As a result of treatment, fibroblasts are activated, signaling the regeneration and remodeling of collagen. As collagen rebuilds the skin’s supportive tissues, tightening occurs on the surface.
What eMatrix skin resurfacing does for our Manhattan area patients
Through the completion of the recommended number of treatments, patients can expect to see a significant improvement in the tone and texture of their skin. After each treatment, skin looks a little smoother and tighter, with existing scars and wrinkles diminishing as new collagen is produced. Due to the nature of the body’s healing process, the results of treatment occur progressively over the course of three to six months and three to five treatment sessions.
What to expect from eMatrix treatment
Fractional skin resurfacing can be somewhat uncomfortable. Patients of Dr. Shelton may begin treatment with the application of a topical anesthetic to improve their experience. After treatment, the skin may appear slightly red and swollen. Depending on the degree of ablation to the skin, these side effects may last from a few hours to a week or two. Scarring and the signs of aging can be addressed without invasive procedures.
