We say that you will need 3 days of social downtime with eMatrix to deal with the crustiness and some redness. After that, anything can be covered up with makeup. For chemical peels, depending on the strength and depth, I've seen up to 10 days of downtime because of excessive redness, peeling, oozing, etc. I believe eMatrix is a much better treatment with superior results and much less downtime.
How Much Shorter is the Healing Process for a EMatrix Procedure Than a Chemical Peel Procedure?
