EMatrix for Acne scars
eMatrix is a fantastic laser to minimize acne scars. Though radiofreqnecy technology the scars are minimized and you create a smoother skin surface. It can take several treatments to help rejuvenate the skin and the deeper the scars, the more treatments it may take so patience and realistic expectations are needed since this is not a one-time treatment. Please consult a board certified dermatologist with experience with this laser for the best cosmetic results.

eMatrix is great technology, as it uses radiofrequency energy (RF) in a sublative manner, i.e. sparing the epidermis or outermost lining of the skin in the way it delivers its energy to the dermis. In effect, this allows minimal or no down time as the outermost layer of the skin appears nearly normal.
eMatrix is used extensively in our program in our Williamsville office where we treat atrophic acne scars, some ice pick scars depending on their depth to width ratio (Dr. Raffy criteria), rolling acne scars and boxed acne scars.
ematrix is also beneficial in certain types of burn scars and early surgical scarring.
