EMatrix and scarring


eMatrix addresses texture problems. It helps with fine lines, wrinkles, and facial scarring, such as that from acne. You would need to see a physician for a consultation depending upon what kind of scarring you want to address.

...ideally rolling and atrophic scars, early scars

In theory, Ematrix can help with all sort of scars, including atrophic, box car, ice pick, rolling, and traumatic scars, including burn scars. It works using rf or radiofrequency to help break down old collagen, scars, and remodels collagen. 

The early the treatment (early scars respond best), the better the result.
