Does Ematrix Work for Hypopigmentation White Scars?

NO

Very unlikely- hypopigmentation is due to lack of melanin, ie. .pigment in your skin. eMatrix is designed to treat collagen, ie. stimulate collagen by breaking down old scars, and stimulating cells to produce collagen and not melanin. So it is very unlikely that eMatrix will work for hypopigmented scars. 

Sometimes using a laser to blend in the surrounding skin can reduce the LOOK of hypopigmented scars.
