Does EMatrix Sublitive Work for Eye Wrinkles and Loose Eyelid Skin?

I have some fine wrinkles under my eyes and the eyelid itself is a little loose. I had a consultation and the nurse recommended eMatrix sublitive laser. I was wondering what's the best laser treatment for under eye wrinkles and loose eyelid. Thank you for any suggestions

EMatrix and Ultherapy for wrinkles around the eyes - Williamsville, NY

Thank you for your question.

Fractional lasers are used for this indication.

However, I use two technologies for wrinkles under the eyes and outside the eyes (outer eyes) - the 1.5 mm Ultherapy transducers and eMatrix. Together they do wonders in eliminating fine wrinkles.

Yes. It can

eMatrix is an excellent treatment for wrinkles, especially on the sides and bottom of the eyes. Upper eyelids are best treated with CO2 laser. 

The upside of eMatrix compared to laser, is the lower downtime. In Australia we have the option of going upto 100mj per pin, and this can really stimulate collagen. A great overall treatment for wrinkles, with controlled downtime. 3-5 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart is recommended.

EMatrix helps to decrease eyelid wrinkles and improves skin quality.  It softens the look of the eyelid creases. It does not make it go away completely.  The EMatrix has little down time, but requires multiple treatments.  There are other options that are available as well.

EMatrix for Eyelid Wrinkles

EMatrix can decrease eyelid wrinkles and improve skin tone with little to no downtime.  There are other alternatives that you can discuss with your plastic surgeon.

EMatrix for eye wrinkles and loose skin

eMatrix can help some, and my office has treated lots of patients for this. However, I recently got the Invasix unit and have found the Fractora (one of the components of that machine) more effective for this area of treatment than the eMatrix. The pins can go deeper and the tip is smaller, allowing for better contouring and results. While you might be ok with the eMatrix, it will require more treatments than a single Fractora treatment.
