I had my first ematrix procedure this past week and have experienced a distinct and noticable improvement in my acne scars. The scars themselves, are rolling and ice pick type scars, on my cheeks, about 15 years old. Approximately 5 days after the treatment it was clear that the scars had... READ MORE

Ok. First of all I am a physician so I do my homework and I have not been able to find ANYTHING that keeps my melasma under control. I have done all the hydroxyquinone, IPL, C- creams, retin A, sunscreen, hats . My Derm recommended E- matrix followed by cosmion mask and I am AMAZED!! I am 6 days... READ MORE

I had one full-face & neck procedure done in the middle of November 2012 and the 2nd on February 27, 2013. I honestly think the laser melted some of the fat in my cheeks, which I'm not overly pleased about. My first procedure took 5 days to heal (without any ointment) and the second... READ MORE

It was twice the price and they did not use any numbing cream. I was not told about the possibility of scabs, etc. I am not a happy camper. I was sent home in pain and unable to drive adequately. No sunscreen applied and I live in Florida. The technician talked about herself and not about what I... READ MORE

I have seen no results, it is like using a facial scrub afterwards, save your money i went and had this done but after swelling went down, you really can not see any difference in skin or wrinkles same as before except i am out a lot of money. I would tell anyone not to do this find... READ MORE

I didn't my first ematrix on my stretch marks on my stomach area.. Overall procedure was not painful at all... Afterwards felt very sunburnt in the area but only last maybe a day. Now on day 3 just have little scabs that ate not very noticeable at all... Can't tell much of a deference yet but... READ MORE

I've had 4 eMatrix treatments and so far see no improvement in the texture or reduction in wrinkles on my face. The treatment is uncomfortable, but not painful. However, the 4-6 hours following the treatment can be very painful. It feels like the worst sunburn yo have ever had. Don't plan on... READ MORE

I am a Mexican American 52 yr old with olive skin that tans into a golden color. I started to notice my neck was a little crepeyand the light acne scars on my cheek were more noticible and creating "waves" on my cheek. I went to ALC and signed up for 4 treatments on my face and neck. My first... READ MORE

I wanted Dot Therapy for my icepick scars, as I had seen pictures in my doctor's office with great results, plus it was less expensive! She kept saying she wanted to do the EMatrix, because it was "new" and she had high hopes for it with acne scars. She did warn me that there was nothing... READ MORE

Do not waste your money if u intend on getting this procedure for acne scars. i have rolling scars on my cheek and decided to get this done because it seemed reasonably priced and minimal downtime. well, you will have grid-like marks on your face for at least 3-4 days depending how strong they...

So I am 20 years old, almost 21, and I have been left with some horrible acne scarring from when i was a teen, and it really knocks my confidence. I went for a consultation at Perfect Body NY and agreed to start the E-Matrix treatment once a month, alongside a Micro once a month also. The... READ MORE

I am male, 43 y.o. with very fair skin and a redhead. My overall skin condition is good to excellent as I’ve tried to take care of my skin on a regular basis including the daily use of a high SPF sun block since my 20’s and have pretty much avoided un protected sun exposure. However I did exp... READ MORE

I am a female, late 40's. I have always had thicker skin on my face. I have had some acne throughout the years, including cystic type, but no scarring. I have had one matrix about two years ago and before that, six IPL Photo facials to even out red and brown pigmented skin. I don't have... READ MORE

I went to American Laser (which is wide spread and has a very good reputation) and was told that I was a perfect canadate one because I am only 20 years old two because I was treating acne scares and three because they are very minor (only visable up close). I had four treatments with a month... READ MORE

Wanted to share my regrets about doing ematrix. Went in for mild acne scarring on cheeks and chin, was really nervous about possible poor results and specifically asked about possibility of ematrix causing additional scarring or collagen loss. I was promised by 2 doctors at this practice (on... READ MORE

Hi I have some acne scars on my face for over 15 years. Although they are not too visible, I want to get rid of them. I had tried injection for filling them up, having chemical peelings, MTS and I had IPL treatment on a monthly basis for one and a half years. The scars did improved (they are... READ MORE

I signed up for a series of 5 E Matrix treatments just over a year ago, after visiting their booth at a women's fair. The cost seemed reasonable, $2,100.00, and they included some micro-dermabrasion treatments with the package. This was supposedly a "discounted price". I read the reviews before... READ MORE

I had an eMatrix treatment yesterday and am horrified with what I am seeing today. First of all, apparently I am incredibly stupid because I went to a med spa that had a groupon for this in Newport Beach, CA. I am in my mid 40's and thought that perhaps this would be a procedure that would have... READ MORE

Hello all, I had my first appointment with a (quite well-known with good reputation according to reviews) dermatologist in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles yesterday. I have been suffering from acne for more than 20 years of my life so far, from severe, moderate to weak but with lots of scars remained... READ MORE
