EMatrix for Acne Scars: Does It Work?

Congratulations on the successful course of Accutane! If your breakouts are now under control, it would be an excellent time to start thinking about improving scarring. Keep in mind that the recommendation is to wait 6 months to receive any laser/resurfacing treatment post-Accutane, however it is great you are looking into your options now.

eMatrix is a non-laser resurfacing technology that improves skin tone and texture through the use of radiofrequency. It certainly does work, however the amount of improvement is dependent on the severity of your scars, and number of sessions performed. Without actually seeing your skin, it is difficult to predict whether 3 treatments will be sufficient, however a minimum of 3 sessions is certainly a good place to start.

Depending on the severity of the redness of your scars, you may want to look into a laser called the VBeam in addition to eMatrix. VBeam is a pulsed dye laser that specifically targets vascular issues within the skin. While eMatrix has the potential to improve superficial redness due to scarring, the VBeam will be much more aggressive and effective. Discuss with your physician if this is a suitable option for you. Best of luck!

it can work for certain types of acne scars. IMO it works best for early scars, atrophic, and rolling scars. 
For late scars and severe scarring, lasers and insulated micro needling devices like INFINI work much better than eMatrix- even at the maximum 100 mj setting.
