Good Results with Ematrix. Temecula, CA

I had four EMatrix treatments last year and saw real improvement in my face. I am currently looking for a new provider for a "touch-up" treatment, although I'm wondering if I shouldn't just pony up and get a mini face/neck lift and use fillers or botox. Ematrix did some great things for my skin and face, but when I keep getting quotes of over $1 K for a single treatment, I'm wondering if it wouldn't be more cost effective and less hassle to just get the facelift procedure done. Over 10 years, I'll spend a lot of money on Ematrix and still need additional help with some areas from fillers and such. Maybe a one time expense beats spending $1500 to $2000 every year.

EMatrix is still on my "To Do" list

Having learned a good bit more about what I need to keep my face and skin in good shape, I am realizing that it's really a matter of keeping up with EMatrix, in addition to utilizing some other procedures. I really miss the quality and tone of my skin from using EMatrix last year. I have seen a pretty dramatic change as I've moved past the one year mark since my last session. I have also found much more reasonable pricing from several offices that make it reasonable to refresh, or possibly even redo the full treatment with 3 or 4 sessions. I found that looking for sublative skin rejuvenation provided me far more results than looking specifically for EMatrix. I found prices ranging from $525 for a single face treatment (a doctor's office promotion, to $1500 - 2000 for 3 or 4 treatments. One caveat I would offer is that if you are not going to use all of your services pretty quickly, it is better to finance the payments (usually at 0% for a defined period of time). In the event that something happens and the business cannot provide the service(s), you have recourse to discontinue payment and/or get back the unused money. I had this happen and was very happy that I hadn't paid out of pocket, which likely would not have been reimbursed. I was very satisfied with the settlement of the account, although I was not very confident going into the process that it would end up a fair reckoning. I'll have to let you know who I choose and what the outcome is.

Ematrix Still My Favorite Procedure

I am a month out from my first of three, or possibly four, treatments in a row. I wasn't able to get my treatment "refresher" in at the one year mark and after about 16 months from the last treatment, I really saw a difference in the quality of my skin. My face seemed somewhat sunken around the cheek area and just less youthful. After one treatment, I already see improvement and I'm excited to know that the improvements will continue for the next few months. My nurse told me that a lot of people think it doesn't work because they expect immediate improvement. I find the gradual nature of the improvements make them more natural and less noticeable to others, which I like. I just look better and better, instead of having a striking immediate change. I don't care who knows I use it, a lot of people see the grids during the healing process and ask, but it's nice to just look like you improved -- it's your body doing what it used to do, so you just end up looking like a slightly younger version. I added the neck area and have seen some improvement there too.

I'm wondering if I should do three procedures and hold off on the final one I prepaid until next year for the refresher. Supposedly, if you do the initial series, you just have to keep it up with a single yearly treatment. I see a lot of places listing the initial series as only three treatments. If anyone has any info on this, I'd like to know if four in a row are better than three or if three is the right amount.

Ematrix Still my first choice

I've continued with more EMatrix and tried one treatment that was a different, less invasive, and for me less effective process. I continue to see good results from EMatrix, with the caveat that you have to allow time for the internal processes to show externally. I will have a "touch up" treatment at the end of the year and will be looking to see if this protocol is sufficient to keep my skin happy and healthy looking.

The women who performed the Ematrix treaments were wonderful. Unfortunately, the company has gone out of business.
