EMatrix Experience - Farmington Hills, MI

I have been looking to get rid of scars on my face...

I have been looking to get rid of scars on my face forever(15yrs). Finaly decided to try this since I was told this treatment could be done on almost any skin. I am an Asian Indian male 33+. So I went to get my first treatement at American Laser Skincare (ALS) fka American Laser Center. Four weeks ago I got my first treatment and I was little scared because I don't trust any sales person..yes I am right on that. I was told the for the first 3 days you will have the little dots on the skin, so I could get the treatment on Friday and Monday, I am all ready to go to work. Well, it took about 8 days to clear my face.

The first 3 days you will see the swollen on the area (during this time it looked like all my scars were gone). Gradually it will start to fade and little dots from the treatment gets darker and shed off by the 8th day. On the 9th day, I was back to the way I was...Now after almost 4 weeks, I don't see any difference, before and after treatment. They say, it take about 3 to 4 treatments to see the effect.

My 2nd appointment is set on a weekday because on my skin it is hard to notice the dots, unless you come very close to my face. I have pictures, but haven't had a chance to edit to post, yet. The cost is too much, I wonder the machine itself costs that much. Since some scars are little deep, I am getting 8 treatments, 2 sets of 4 with 2 months of gap between these two treatments. Normally you need only 4 treatment, but accoring to the sales person I need 8 (sure, like I believe that). Anyway, I just want to look handsome again..lol so I didn't care going through 8 treatments.

I am attaching some pictures, there are more, but I thought this is enought to see what's like the days after.

5th Day after 2nd treatment: I think the 2nd time healing was faster. Almost all spots are cleared.

Got the 3rd treatment couple of days ago. Since I wasn't seeing any improvement after two treatments, they changed the level from B-32 to A-48, which is the top. The lady was doing did few spots couple of times over it. It was little more painful and down time is longer than pervous ones. However, I noticed the grids start to disappear on the 4th day.

After 3 treatments(4 Months), I am starting to think that it was just a waste of money. I don't see any difference. The only thing it does help to remove the top layer of your skin, but that even doesn't cost $2000. There are many other ways to peal your skin.

Last week I got my 4th treatment. Now all the dots...

Last week I got my 4th treatment. Now all the dots are cleared. ... Well I am not expecting results like the laser, but I expect what I was told, after two treatments you will start to notice difference. Well, after almost 5 months and 4 treatments, I should have seen something. On the 3rd treatment, they decided to go up higher because they weren't seeing anything from the last two treatments. So they decided to set the settings all the way up, and went through some spots more than once; fortunately I didn't get any scars from it.
On my 4th treatment they kept the same settings. ......looking at the pictures I have take before treatment.... :-(

Jason T and to others,

My 1st and 2nd treatments were set at level B-32.
3rd and 4th treatments were at level A-38.
I never used any cream before treatment. 3days after the treatment, I just used water to keep my face fresh and applied some lotion, the one doesn't have much acid in it. Read the label to know what's in the lotion if you are buying.
When you do at A-38 the pain is little stronger, but could still tolerate.

Couple of weeks ago I got my first...

Couple of weeks ago I got my first Microdermabrasion. I don't anything else to update here, everything is just the same.

Thanks for everyone's support. Otherwise this page would have been pretty boring. Well, since some people, who are in this business, wanted to claim that eMatrix does "Miracle", I thought I post a new picture. I just took these 2 pictures few minutes ago. This is after 7 Months 3 Weeks and couple of days. You could be the judge and see if it has changed any.

I don't want to spend too much time updating the post, but nothing to say. However, wait for my review in Feb 2013. I have lot to say about this whole treatment experience, but I think I should wait till February 2013. You will appreciate it.

This might be my last post as I have had my last...

This might be my last post as I have had my last treatment last month I have seen all the effects and waited more than a year. THIS IS TOTALLY A WASTE OF MONEY! In my case and mostly in anybody else's case the effects won't last more than two - three weeks. The effect you get out of this treatment is not what you want to present in front of others. At first interview they claimed that I will have NO SCARS on my face by the end of last treatment and will start seeing the difference after 3 treatments. All that was a total LIE! Even after 5-6 treatments they tried to convince me that they are surprised to see no results. In addition, they will contact the main office and tried to do something, which was a total garbage. For my 7th treatment I had a different technician, and she even said that there is no difference by looking at the before pictures. So basically, I gave them $2000 to torture me 8 times.

It doesn't matter what type of skin you have, the treatment doesn't have the power to penetrate under your skin layer or top to re-grow that damaged part.

If anybody doesn't believe my statement and have money to spend and want to feel the pain ... go ahead ... go for it. You are not going to see anything different. If anyone says that I am wrong...question them.. they most likely work for this!

Thanks for everyone posting "Thank you".

I am happy to see that people find this post useful.

It's going to be almost 2years since I got my first treatment and nothing has changed. If I get time, I will post new pictures so you could see how it looks after 2years.

Thank you!
