Thank you for your question.

Given the FDA recommended settings for eMatrix in the US, there is little or no downtime following eMatrix for undereye wrinkles - 24 hours or less.

2-4 days

This depends on the treatment settings (ABC), and the coverage with overlaps. I would say 2-4 days. In Australia we have the 100j setting, however will not go to this power around the eyes. Using say 50-70 mj per pin, with a 25% overlap, expect to heal up within 2-4 days. 

Redness may persist for an extra few days. 


All the best,
