Ematrix is a state of the art needleless radiofrequency machine that performs resurfacing treatments that are suitable for all skin tones. The treatment has minimal down time but has powerful results. The Ematrix is excellent for targeting the following:

  • Acne scarring
  • Stretch marks
  • Skin tightening
  • Skin resurfacing
  • Anti-ageing and reducing fine lines and wrinkles

In essence, the energy from radiofrquency keeps the top layer of the skin intact but produces significant changes below the skin by using heat to stimulate new collagen formation. Recent research shows that this unique technology is the safest resurfacing treatment for darker skin types for acne scarring and skin tightening.

What does the treatments involve?
The eMatrix device allows for customization of the depth of ablation and degree of resurfacing depending on your skin condition. Our Medical Professionals will choose the appropriate treatment program after assessing your skin type and condition. During treatment most patients will experience a warm pricking sensation. Anesthetic cream may be applied to the treatment area 30-45mins beforehand to ensure that the procedure is comfortable. The eMatrix treatment itself usually takes less than 30mins.

What will I notice immediately after treatment?
The treated area will look like mild sunburn for up to 48 hours. Over the next few days as the redness subsides you may be left with grids of red pin-pricks that will slowly fade to brown and then disappear. One of the big advantages of eMatrix over some other ablative treatments is that immediately afterwards it may be covered with tinted creams and cover-up.

When will I see results?
Initially your skin may look refreshed and firmer. However the main benefits of eMatrix will develop gradually over the next 6-8 weeks as new collagen is produced by fibroblast cells deep in the dermis of the skin.

How many treatments will I need?
The number of treatments depends on your initial skin condition and the problem being addressed but is typically 1-3 treatment sessions at 4-6 week intervals.

How long will the results last?
Since RF treatment triggers collagen production and tissue remodeling of the dermal matrix, improvements may continue for up to a year from the last session resulting in a gradual and long-lasting enhancement of the skin tone, laxity and texture.
Because eMatrix stimulates new collagen production it is also essential to use collagen-stimulating antioxidants, particularly topical vitamin C and a retinoid or Vitamin A. Our ZO Medical Professionals will advise on suitable products to use from our ZO Range.
