EMatrix is a laser that uses radiofrequency to rejuvenate the skin and stimulate the production of collagen. Radiofrequency energy heats the dermal layers deep beneath the skin’s surface to promote healing and lead to fresher, more youthful looking skin. EMatrix laser resurfaces the skin without the downtime associated with aggressive laser treatments because it does not destroy the top layer of the skin. The laser improves the appearance of acne scars and wrinkles and firms sagging skin. It can be used in combination with other cosmetic procedures including Botox and fillers.

This laser is safe to use on all skin types and colors. Patients with implantable metal devices should discuss with their doctor if the laser is appropriate and patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding should wait before having this treatment. Good candidates are individuals who are able to commit to at least three sessions to see the best results.

The cost of each laser treatment depends on the size of the area being treated and the training and expertise of the provider. Each session generally costs around $600-$1000.

After the procedure, patients might have mild redness similar to sunburn. Some patients experience some dryness and flakiness of the skin in the first few days after the treatment. Results are generally seen beginning two weeks after the laser treatment and will continue to improve for six months following the last laser session. A yearly touch-up session is recommended to maintain the results.
