EMatrix vs OTC products - No comparison
The reason eMatrix is only found in a medical office is because it actually has the power to change the skin. The same holds true for certain skin products that are only sold through medical offices.
OCT products can make a difference - but on a lesser level. There is no FDA testing on products that promise to get rid of brown patches or brighten the skin, so any manufacturer can claim what they wish.
As to a direct comparison - you won't find a product in a department store or drug store that can do the same thing as a medical energy device.
eMatrix will provide a quick brightening and re-texturizing of the skin with improved smoothness and tone. When used in a series it can also impact scarring - something topical products are incapable of accomplishing.

EMatrix vs. OTC products
In my opinion, over the counter products make a lot of promises, and almost all of them fall very, very short of doing anything noticeable. eMatrix is not a skin "brightener" though. It is used more for resurfacing and evening out fine lines, acne scarring, etc. FotoFacial (Photofacial) or IPL treatments are what are primarily used for discolorations and uneven tone. There is nothing over the counter comparable to either of these technologies.
