FAQs: Sublative Rejuvenation™ using eMatrix™

Q:  What makes Sublative Rejuvenation different from other aggressive fractional devices?


A:  Patients today desire face-lift-type results, yet do not want the weeks–to even months–of downtime associated with those treatments.  Aggressive treatments also come with limitations on the range of skin types that can be treated, due to the high risk of skin discoloration.  Although classified as an aggressive treatment, Sublative Rejuvenation is unique because it delivers optimal efficiency with minimal downtime at an affordable price point–and it’s safe for ALL skin types.

Q:  How does Sublative Rejuvenation using eMatrix work?

A:  To achieve the best possible results when addressing any skin imperfection, the energy, whether it be laser or light, must be delivered below the skin without overheating the top layer of the skin.  This has been the challenge with current more aggressive treatments, because they work by overheating the top layer of the skin to the point of complete ablation (removal), forcing the new skin to develop.

Sublative Rejuvenation uses fractional bi-polar radio frequency to penetrate through the skin–to allow more energy beneath the surface of the skin, to really maximize collagen production–while keeping the top layer of the skin intact.

Post treatment, you may notice increased levels of beneficial collagen as new healthy skin cells are produced. Mild to moderate wrinkles and superficial skin discolorations are reduced, and the texture of your skin becomes smoother and more elastic.

Q:  How many treatments do I need?

A:  Each patient’s treatment protocol will vary based on individual needs and results desired.  Most patients will receive three treatments, each spaced four to six weeks apart.

Q:  When can I expect to see results?

A:  Patients will begin to see results after the first treatment and results will continue to improve up to one-year post treatment.  Because this treatment works to rebuild collagen, there are no limitations on how long the results last. Maintenance treatments are recommended post one year to maintain and further enhance current results.

Q:  Does it hurt?

A:  Unlike other aggressive fractional treatments, Sublative Rejuvenation with eMatrix is very tolerable.  During treatment, many patients feel a warm, prickly sensation. After treatment, a pink or red “sunburn” appearance and feeling is common. Topical anesthetic ointments and cooling can be used to reduce unpleasant sensations during treatment.

Q:  Are there any side effects?

A:  No clinical side effects have been reported to date.  The beauty about Sublative Rejuvenation is its capability to offer significant results to ALL skin types with little to no downtime.

Q:  Is everyone a good candidate for Sublative Rejuvenation?

A:  Sublative Rejuvenation is the only fractional treatment that can be used on all skin types.  Some skin conditions (such as eczema) may prohibit patients from receiving the treatment.  Consult your skin care specialist to determine if Sublative Rejuvenation is right for you.
