I've had some acne scars on my right cheek ever since I had very bad acne in my teens. I took 3 full courses of Accutane and my skin gets a few break outs here and there, but has been tremendously improved since I was about 19 and took the first course of Accutane (I'm currently 33). My main... READ MORE

I was a little sceptical about treating acne AND scarring, but the results speak for itself. I had ematrix, 3 treatments, one month apart plus acne treatment at the same time. After the first month I noticed a difference. The staff use a steroid cream right after the eMatrix treatment, so... READ MORE

I spent numerous hours looking at this website and many others on reviews for Fraxel on African American skin and could not find any. I was scheduled to get my first Fraxel treatment on Sept 15, 2010. I was very nervous due to all the reviews I did read and the lack of information for people... READ MORE

Yesterday was my first ematrix procedure in hopes to minimize shallow acne scarring on my checks and chin. I decided to go with doing this despite reading some bad reviews of the ematrix on this site because I can't stand looking at my scars anymore and am willing to take the risk for the... READ MORE

I have moderate acne scarring on my cheeks and have meant to get something done about them for years but something else always comes up. However, the older I get, the more lax my skin gets and the more noticeable my scars seem to become. So, I have been researching everything under the sun... READ MORE

I am 55 years old and am very much into anything that has "anti-aging" associated with it. I decided to try the eMatrix treatments...so I bought a series of four. I had my first treatment 2 days ago. First let me say that even though I took a pain pill and had lidocaine applied to my face...it... READ MORE

Hi there! I am 30 years old from Burma who had 2 sessions of eMatrix laser already. I went to Bangkok to consult about acne scars, which I have all over my face. I met Dr. Una last year in an International Hospital who advised me about eMatrix skin resurfacing and subscission. I wasn’t sure... READ MORE

I have been looking to get rid of scars on my face forever(15yrs). Finaly decided to try this since I was told this treatment could be done on almost any skin. I am an Asian Indian male 33+. So I went to get my first treatement at American Laser Skincare (ALS) fka American Laser Center. Four... READ MORE

So I had my 1st ematrix yesterday and OMG! IT WAS SO PAINFUL! Like more painful than childbirth! I was not offered and numbing cream. I have had 3 fraxel treatments (with numbing cream) and that was a walk in the park compared to eMatrix. When I got home yesterday, my face was on FIRE! I had to... READ MORE

Had my first treatment yesterday. I did smell the burning skin that everyone complains about (it's actually the little hairs being singed). It did sting but quite tolerable with the numbing cream applied 1 hour prior. Felt like a bad sunburn for about 3 hours then didn't feel anything at... READ MORE

I have had acne since the fifth grade( I am 24 Now) and I have tried lasers back when I was 19. I notice a slight difference I am hoping since they went as high as the company can let them go I will notice more results within a few weeks. I may get a 5th one free on another HIGH setting as today... READ MORE

I decided to treat myself with this series of 4 treatments. I can't say there is no difference at all, but no better than a good cream could do. I had a couple of days "down time" after each procedure. Did nothing for hair. Did a very small amount for wrinkles and tightening.... READ MORE

Worst experience I have ever had. I ended up in the emergency room 2 days after my first (and only) treatment. I went in for a pre- treatment test area so they could see how I would react to the procedure and what strength I should use. That night the test spot was red and the next morning it... READ MORE

I was sent an e-mail from a local skin rejuvenation spa in my town with information on the e-matrix sublative laser treatment. I was interested in Fraxel but no one in my area offers it. Made an appointment for E-matrix because they had a special promotion at a reduced cost in the month of... READ MORE

During one of my laser hair removal appointments at American Laser Center, they mentioned the EMatrix procedure...and how I could get the extended hair removal with 4 sessions of EMatrix, for another $2,500. So getting caught up in the "awe" of making myself look younger (I am 35), I... READ MORE

I just had my first ematrix treatment yesterday and my face is blotchy red, swollen and tingly/scratchy today. I keep reading no down time and can go back to normal activities...I look like I burnt my face off and certainly don't want to go anywhere. I had to go out today so I put a bunch of... READ MORE

I'm in my early 50s and still had acne scarring from my teen and young adult years. I also started having patchiness, skin discoloration, small wrinkles, and skin that was starting to sag. I had GREAT results from a series of five ematrix treatments at an excellent facility with a more medical... READ MORE

As I started college I suddenly started breaking out and it left noticeable scarring. Catching it early (I heard the sooner you treat scars, the better) I decided to give the ematrix a try. It's only been about 4 days since my first procedure but I can already tell it was so worth it! It filled... READ MORE

First day post-op. eMatrix and Skin Tightening treatments to face, mouth, neck and chest. Treatments were pain free for me. Burning sensation the first 6 hours but had subsided at bedtime. Results are already noticeable. Slight redness and swelling, only I can see it, hubby cannot. I am... READ MORE

It's been 11 days since my ematrix treatment. My face is still red with rectangular shapes. I've had treatments with fractional laser that caused minimal redness for 24 hours. The people at National Laser Institute in Dallas told me their laser was down when I showed up for my appointment and... READ MORE
