Do the Advancements in Ematrix Technology Make the Procedure More Comfortable?

Are there any other recent improvements to ematrix procedures?

Ematrix and pain

Ematrix is well tolerated by our patients and we use topical creams, cooling sprays, and local anesthetic if needed to reduce pain levels during the procedure.

EMatrix is safe, effective and is quite tolerable in its pain profile during and after treatment

Thank you for your question. It guides patients who are considering eMatrix for the treatment of acne scars, atrophic acne scars, ice pick scars, rolling scars, bozed scars, certain burn scars and some surgical scars.

eMatrix is very tolerable and the current device, 3rd generation or so, is quite tolerable and has minimal discomfort and pain associated with it during and after the procedure.
