Ematrix for Burn Scars?

...can be effective but CO2 fractional better
I have used eMatrix for burns (100 mj per pin), only one pass.... this is because it has less downtime. Bottom line, CO2 fractional is my preferred choice, but eMatrix can be done.

EMatrix for scarring
Photos would definitely help here to determine if eMatrix is even the right treatment for you. With that being said, we almost always use the highest energy settings (Program C, 62 fl) because there's no light with this treatment so "burning" in the traditional sense of lasers, isn't possible. Some people find that setting hot or slightly painful, and we might turn it down a few, but usually we try to get the best results we can with the highest settings tolerated.
