‘Rejuvenates skin and reduces scarring!’
Have you heard of E-Matrix yet? If not you should have! Dr Elisabeth Dancey first introduced this treatment at the Bijoux Medi-Spa in 2011 and her patients results continue to impress. Here at The Grooming Guide we also rate this new fractional skin resurfacing treatment, it’s the business if you are looking for to improve skin tone, texture and pigmentation issues, and all in record time.
E Matrix is a non-laser, non-light based treatment that uses radio frequency as its energy source, and this is delivered to the skin by a handset. After being absorbed in the water in the tissue underneath the skins surface, a tear drop shaped area of tissue coagulation is created. This is ‘sublation’ which means just short of ablation or destruction of tissue and the microscopic holes created take only 12 hours to heal.
In my case I liked the fact that this treatment was quick and the down time minimal, my results appeared with reassuring rapidity and fine lines and also pigmentation were removed and my skin tightened. Used on full power the device can be used for fractional ablation which works wonders on acne scarring. Our other tester had suffered with acne scarring since his teenage years, but after just one treatmenet his scarring and skin texture improved so greatly that his confidence was boosted as a result. Sure his skin became red and swollen the next day, but this just evidence of intense dermal restructuring.
Clearly this treatment is also flexible as it can involve the full face, or just certain areas such as the eyes or the mouth area. Because it will not affect the eyes, they do not need to be covered in treatment. Perhaps the last word should go to Dr Dancey who has seen ‘a couple of treatments can change the life of a young client with bad acne scarring, or it can take years off an older client by reducing lines and tightening up collagen’ Thanks Bijoux Medi Spa for another winning treatment!
