Thanking you in advance for your response to this multi-part question. If eMatrix can't cause fat atrophy, why not? If it can, under what circumstances? Could it possibly cause damage to the dermis or leave any grid-like depressions? What is the impact of using the smaller grid tip vs. the larger grid tip? Thank you, again.
Is It Possible for EMatrix Radiofrequency Solution to Cause Any Fat Atrophy?

It may cause redness (usually short lived), swelling, and grids, but not fat atrophy.

EMatrix and Fat Atrophy
eMatrix does not cause fat atrophy. The depth of the tips and the radio frequency are not deep enough to penetrate or affect fat. My office has done hundreds and hundreds of procedures and I've never seen anyone with grid-like depressions, like those that used to be a possible side effect of Thermage. The eMatrix tips have a different wider penetration of the radio frequency, making it less of a direct targeted penetration so less possible side effects.
