So I had my 1st ematrix yesterday and OMG! IT WAS SO PAINFUL! Like more painful than childbirth! I was not offered and numbing cream. I have had 3 fraxel treatments (with numbing cream) and that was a walk in the park compared to eMatrix. When I got home yesterday, my face was on FIRE! I had to put my husbands shop fan on my kitchen table and sit in front of that for an hour! I am guessing I had level 3 treatment with 200 pulses based on the pain level. I went in wanting the VI Peel and was talked into eMatrix instead. I made the mistake of buying 3 sessions and I KNOW I will not be back for anymore. I CANT TAKE THE PAIN!
Every review on here says eMatrix was "easy and didn't hurt at all" they must have done level 1 treatments with numbing cream. I am SO RED AND RAW today. I wish they had told me how much this would hurt. What should have taken 30 minutes took an hour because I had to constatnly stop. I couldnt stand it! IT WAS HORRIBLE! I have burned grid markers all over my face. It's too soon to see if it even helped at all. I AM VERY DISSAPOINTED AND WISH I HAD NEVER HAD THIS DONE.
