EMatrix can be used to correct acne scars in dark skinned patients - #AcneScarTretment #Wiliamsville
Thank you for your question.
eMatric is sublative and does not disrupt the integrity of the skin and does not cause keloid scars or hyperpigmentation in dark skinned individuals.
Therefore, it is a great modality for African American skin.
All the best

EMatrix and African American Skin
eMatrix is a fantastic laser for acne scars on dark skin. eMatrix is a "color blind" laser which means that it can be safely used on your skin, no matter what pigmentation you have. Unlike Fraxel which leaves hyperpigmentaiton of dark skin, the eMatrix will not produce this side effect. Best, Dr. Green
