Revolutionary Wrinkle Reduction & Acne Scar Solution

Improve your skin by reducing your wrinklesphotodamage and acne scars with an eMatrix™ treatment.

Sublative Rejuvenation, using eMatrix™, is a Health Canada and FDA approved non-surgical skin treatment. It is suitable for Vancouver residents of all skin types who want a safe, effective and non-invasive improvement of their skin colour, texture, tone and consistency. The technology has been clinically proven to reduce and eliminate the appearance of wrinkles, scarring, stretch marks, and complexion issues caused by environmental damage.

Our patients love this technology because it stimulates healthy skin cell growth in less than 30 minutes without lengthy downtime, achieving a visible improvement that is long lasting.

How eMatrix™ Treatments Work

Sublative Rejuvenation is used to correct textural irregularities and signs of skin aging such as sun damage, acne scarring, wrinkle reduction, brown spots, stretch marks and other scars, with minimal side effects. Unlike many other wrinkle reduction and acne scarring treatments, eMatrix™ is safe and appropriate for all skin types because it doesn’t use laser energy. Rather, it uses fractionated bi-polar radio frequency (RF) energy. It is similar to Fraxel, however it is considered to be more gentle to the skin. RF energy is also associated with a lower risk of pigmentation issues which makes it more suitable for darker skin tones. That’s why it’s so effective at resolving pigmentation issues as well.

To achieve optimal results, the eMatrix™ bipolar radio frequency waves penetrate deep below the skin without heating the top layer. The therapeutic energy delivered by this device goes deeper than many other devices, fanning out from the top to the bottom. This allows it to work more aggressively without damaging the upper layers of skin. In fact, the upper layer of the skin remains intact, relatively unaffected. The treatment improves the deeper layers of skin, at the foundation.

With Sublative Rejuvenation, the injury produced by the eMatrix™ machine removes microscopic bits of skin beneath the skin surface, with minimal damage to the epidermis. Because these waves penetrate far deeper than other technologies, the skin can then produce the maximum amount of new collagen to fill out and reduce wrinkles, acne scarring or other textural issues quickly. The recovery time is short.

As the upper layers shed while you recover, your healthier and more resilient complexion appears.

The Top Benefits of Sublative Rejuvenation

Natural skin rejuvenation: eMatrix™ sublative rejuvenation delivers natural RF energy that triggers your body to produce collagen and elastin production. Your body does all the work to achieve the improvement you want. That means there are no drugs or surgery required.

A faster visible improvement: Even after the first session, you’ll notice an improvement in your complexion.

For all skin types and shades: The radiofrequency energy emitted by the ematrix™ device does not cause pigmentation issues for darker skin tones. That’s why it’s preferred over laser technologies.

Complements other skin treatments: This treatment can be combined with other aesthetic medical technologies for a more comprehensive improvement of your complexion. Our patients notice great improvement when they add this to a treatment protocol that includes fillers, BOTOX and lasers. Microneedling with Dermapen 4 can also be used in conjunction with eMatrix™ to improve the appearance of scars and wrinkles.

What to Expect with eMatrix™ Treatments

Each patient treatment protocol at our Burnaby, BC medical spa will be based on their individual needs. An in-depth assessment of your skin and concerns is conducted to establish this protocol. However it is usually recommended to start with a series of three treatments, performed at 3 – 4 weeks.

Patients describe the treatment to be relatively comfortable. To improve your comfort, a topical numbing cream may be applied but this is not necessary. You may experience a warming, prickly sensation, but it is well tolerated. The microscopic injury produced in the skin creates a sunburn-like redness that may last for 2 to 3 days. For more extensive treatments, the redness may last a little longer. To hide this, you can apply sterile makeup or opt for a Glacial® fx treatment to calm redness, soothe inflammation, and accelerate the exfoliation process.

Most Vancouver patients are back at work in a couple of days. You may experience some flakiness and crusting after about 3 to 5 days. This can be controlled with a recommended moisturizer. It is imperative that you apply moisturizer and protect your skin from the sun as you heal. Although it may be tempting, it’s best not to pick at the flakiness.

Unlike other similar acne scarring and wrinkle type treatments, eMatrix™ causes minimal discomfort and the procedures are quick. Patients can expect to see results after the second treatment and it will continue with subsequent treatments as the collagen rebuilds. The best results are seen six months after the last treatment as all the new collagen has matured. All skin types can be safely treated with this technology.

Treating Stretch Marks with eMatrix™

90% of women develop stretch marks sometime in their life, usually while in their teens or during pregnancy. Stretch marks, medically referred to as striae distensae, is a form of scarring that occurs as a result of the tearing of tissue extending from below the skin’s surface upward. It is caused by a rapid stretching of the skin. Because several layers of skin are affected, stretchmarks remain one of the most difficult complexion irregularities to treat but still the most common. You may have also failed to ever make any noticeable improvement when using at-home remedies.

You will find the appearance of your stretch marks visibly improve and, in some cases, disappear, a pleasing outcome that we have helped many women obtain.

You can improve your stretch marks no matter what skin type you have, with minimal downtime. You’ll also enjoy the added benefit of smoother, firmer skin that is more uniform in texture and tone!

Generally, you will find newer stretch marks easier to treat than old ones. Newer stretch marks are characterized as reddish, glossy streaks that may be slightly depressed. They become paler in appearance as time passes. They do not pose a health risk but are an indication of weakened and damaged skin that you can re-strengthen with our eMatrix™ technology.
