By utilizing RF sublation — fractionated bipolar radio frequency technology— heat energy is effectively placed into the dermis (the inner skin layer) where it can produce significant effect on collagen stimulation with minimal disruption of the epidermis (the outer skin layer).
Bipolar radio-frequency energy is delivered via a matrix of 64 electrodes in the disposable applicator tip. The RF energy generates fractional deep dermal heating in the region of the electrode matrix to induce skin injury, thus eliciting a wound healing response. Less affected tissue surrounding the matrix points may be stimulated by heat which helps accelerate the healing process, leading to tighter, rejuvenated appearance of the skin.
Unlike traditional fractional resurfacing treatments where energy from the laser beam is reduced as it penetrates deeper, resulting in cone-shaped areas of heating, eMatrix Sublative Rejuvenation results in ‘inverted cone’-shaped areas of heating, with minimal damage to the surface skin while maximizing the impact on the collagen in the deeper dermis.
Three treatments are recommended at monthly intervals, with level and intensity of treatment depending on the indication and the skin type.
After treatment with eMatrix, most patients showed improvement in facial parameters such as skin brightness (83%) and skin smoothness/wrinkle reduction (90%).
