EMatrix for acne scars is safe if you have titanium plates - Williamsville, NY

Thank you for your question regarding this technology.

eMatrix is sublative and energy is delivered right underneath the epidermal lining of the skin, the outermost layer. As such, it is not going to effect the titanium plate in your neck or dental implants, etc. The energy does not penetrate that deep !
