Ematrix and Accutane
Isoretinoin and eMatrix
Not on this dose...
I conducted a trial on 183 subjects, but did NOT exceed an average dose of 25 mg per day (based upon body weight), additionally RF ematrix did not exceed 48 mJ per pin, with 25% over lap. All patients had antibiotic ointment and oral erythomycin or keflex for 3 days post eMatrix. Results- safe!
This is only a pilot study, and more research is needed. If you are in the US, I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS TREATMENT, as more papers need to be published.

eMatrix is a great laser for treating acne scars. However, please consult with your current physician because the recommendation is to wait 6 months at least after completing your course of Accutane to have the eMatrix laser procedure performed. Please consult a board certified dermatologist with experience with eMatrix for the best cosmetic results.
