EMatrix does not improve hypopigmentation
eMatrix uses sublative technology and does not involve melanin production or destruction. It would not improve or worsen hypopigmented scars.
Hypopigmented scars and Ematrix
Hypopigmented scars are difficult to treat. Ematrix would not be your first-line choice for hypopigmented scars. In our office, we often use fractional co2 laser to help improve texture and color in those scars.
Very unlikely- hypopigmentation is due to lack of melanin, ie. .pigment in your skin. eMatrix is designed to treat collagen, ie. stimulate collagen by breaking down old scars, and stimulating cells to produce collagen and not melanin. So it is very unlikely that eMatrix will work for hypopigmented scars.
Sometimes using a laser to blend in the surrounding skin can reduce the LOOK of hypopigmented scars.
