Ematrix for surgical scars
Raffy Karamanoukian MD FACS
Yes, it can treat surgical scars
Early surgical scars can respond to eMatrix, or even a vascular laser like the V Beam. I often combine laser or eMatrix with surgical taping, and silicone sheeting and creams for best effect.

EMatrix for surgical scars
eMatrix is great for surgical scars, and MUCH more effective than any topical. You need to remember that topicals are just that - applied to the top of the skin and able to penetrate only slightly. eMatrix goes deeper into the skin layers, which allows it to repair surgical scars better because they are deeper in the skin.

Ematrix is excellent for acne scars even in skin of color
Ematrix is much more effective than topical treatments for treatment of acne scarring. Several treatments are needed for optimal results and not all the scars will completely resolve. You should have an evaluation and be treated by a trained aesthetic physician such as a dermatologist or plastic surgeon and they will be able to let you know if this would be a helpful treatment for you, how much improvement you can expect and how long it will take. The ematrix is one of my favorite treatments for acne scarring even in skin of color.
