The eMatrix system with Syneron’s unique Sublative Rejuvenation treatment goes beyond fractional methods for skin resurfacing. Sublative Rejuvenation is a non-laser and non-light based treatment that utilizes RF sublation—fractionated bipolar radio frequency technology—to place the heat energy effectively into the dermis where it can produce significant dermal impact with minimal epidermal disruption.
