If you are interested in improving the overall appearance of your skin and reducing visible signs of aging, consider eMatrix SublativeTM rejuvenation. eMatrix SublativeTM is a quick and extremely effective procedure that can deliver significant results without the expense or lengthy downtime of more aggressive procedures or surgery.
eMatrix SublativeTM rejuvenation is an FDA-cleared treatment that can tighten loose skin, improve skin texture, and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, scarring, and stretch marks. The procedure is truly unique because it can deliver results similar to more aggressive skin treatments by stimulating the growth of collagen in deeper layers of the skin. This improves skin from the inside out, prompting improvements in the skin that will continue to develop over time.

SublativeTM rejuvenation is a skin treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to treat a variety of skin issues, including acne scars, other scars, wrinkles, stretch marks, poor skin texture, and other visible signs of aging.
Here at The Med Spot, we offer sublative rejuvenation using the eTwo eMatrix SublativeTM laser from Candela Medical — one of the best tools available today for skin rejuvenation.
The key to the outstanding results achieved with eMatrix SublativeTM rejuvenation is the type of energy used, and how that energy is delivered to the skin.
For the best possible results from any type of skin rejuvenation treatment, energy must be delivered to the inner layer of the skin (the dermis) without overheating the top layer of the skin (the epidermis). The dermis contains collagen and elastin, which provide support and elasticity to the skin. Delivering energy and heat to the dermis helps stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which results in a tighter, smoother, and more refined appearance to the treatment area.
The eTwo eMatrix SublativeTM laser achieves these deep tissue improvements with fractionated bi-polar radiofrequency. This radiofrequency energy can penetrate through the skin with minimal impact on the epidermis.
Other, more aggressive skin rejuvenation treatments can pose challenges because they heat the epidermis, which creates more a greater potential for hyperpigmentation and controlled injury of the outer layers of the skin. By sending radiofrequency energy to a deeper level of the skin, eMatrix SublativeTM can maximize collagen production without forcing new skin to develop in the outer epidermal layers. This distinction makes the eMatrix SublativeTM procedure unique and safe for all skin types and delivers results quickly with less downtime than other treatment methods.
Clinical trials show that eMatrix SublativeTM rejuvenation improves the appearance of skin imperfections such as fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, stretch marks, and acne scarring.
Unlike cosmetic treatments such as chemical peels, Botox, or dermal fillers, eMatrix SublativeTM rejuvenation improves the appearance of the skin from the inside out. By stimulating collagen regrowth, eMatrix SublativeTM rejuvenation delivers long-lasting results that can be maintained with semi-annual or annual treatments. Many patients see an improvement in skin tone and texture after just one treatment.
eMatrix SublativeTM is the only FDA-cleared treatment that is safe and effective for all skin types and degrees of pigmentation.
eMatrix SublativeTM rejuvenation can deliver remarkable results for individuals with:
Patients describe eMatrix SublativeTM treatment as a warm, prickly sensation on the skin.
eMatrix SublativeTM is not painful, and strong pain medication is not required for this procedure. Most patients will feel a mild, prickly sensation. Your provider will likely use a topical anesthetic to minimize any discomfort, but the treatment is generally very tolerable.
Following treatment, some reddening of the skin may occur, along with minimal discomfort, similar to a mild sunburn.
In a study of 72 patients treated at different clinics, most people saw noticeable improvements in wrinkles and overall facial appearance. Over 70 percent of study participants experienced noticeable wrinkle reduction, and more than 90 percent reported improved overall facial appearance.
Multiple treatments with the eMatrix SublativeTM laser will deliver the best results. The number of treatments you require will vary, depending on your skin condition and desired results. Most patients see their desired results after three treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart. For some patients, five treatments may be necessary.
A full-face treatment session takes only 30 minutes to one hour.
Most patients see noticeable results after their first eMatrix SublativeTM treatment. As the dermis continues to produce more collagen, the condition of the skin will continue to improve for one year following treatment.
Because the treatment stimulates new cellular growth and improves the skin from the inside out, results are often very long-lasting. To maintain results and continue the stimulation of new collagen growth, your provider will likely recommend annual follow-up treatments.
For at least seven days before your eMatrix SublativeTM procedure, avoid prolonged sun exposure or any agents that may damage or lighten the skin, including topical products or prescription medications such as:
Downtime following eMatrix SublativeTM treatments is minimal. You can return to your regular daily activities immediately. Most patients experience mild redness or roughness for 48 hours. Avoid wearing makeup for the first 48 hours. Some mild skin roughness may remain for three to five days.
Following an eMatrix treatment, you may feel like you have a mild sunburn. If you experience discomfort, you can apply a cold compress or use a fan to blow cool air on your skin.
Twenty-four to 72 hours after treatment, you may notice small pinpoint scabs on the area treated. This is normal and is a sign that your skin is healing. Try to avoid touching these scabs and do not scratch or pick at them as this will delay healing and could result in some scarring. The scabs may last three to seven days and will shed when your skin has healed.
Try to avoid any activities that will heat your body for at least 48 hours after treatment. This includes excessively hot showers, saunas, vigorous exercise, sun exposure, and massages.
To avoid infection, keep your skin clean. Refrain from using any lotion or other skin products for at least 12 hours. After this time, if your skin is feeling dry, tight, or itchy, you may apply skin cream.
Do not use exfoliating scrubs or razors for at least 48 hours after treatment.
Protect treated areas with an SPF 30 or higher sunscreen for at least one month following treatment.
No side effects have been reported thus far from any clinical studies.

While eMatrix SublativeTM is safe and effective for all skin types, some skin conditions such as eczema may not be suitable for the treatment. Ask your provider if you have concerns about using eMatrix SublativeTM on your skin.
