I would definitely continue taking the oral antibiotic while on eMatrix since this will prevent you from further outbreaks. Best, Dr. Green

You can continue taking it but the best recommendation would be to be off of the antibiotics for a week prior to the treatment, if at all possible. Unlike lasers, sublative RF is not likely to affect the pigmentary status of the skin, i.e cause hyperpigmentation, if certain medications are taken as they may make the skin sensitive to light.
