New Methods of Treatment for Acne Scarring
Acne scars have diverse shapes, depths, and types which make them difficult to treat. Procedures including dermabrasion in the 1980’s to modern-day full-face laser resurfacing have been tried, many times requiring multiple procedures with prolonged downtime to get results. We have been conducting a clinical trial for Syneron Medical, LTD to help them develop the eMatrix, the first device that uses radiofrequency for resurfacing instead of laser for the treatment of acne scars. This procedure employs two devices, the Matrix IR, which is Radiofrequency and Infrared Light, for the deeper scars and the Matrix RF for all over textural improvement and scar reduction. Although enrollment in the trial is full, and we cannot disclose the results just yet, we are already offering this procedure to our patients and are enthusiastic about the results we have seen in practice, especially the low amount of downtime. Schedule a consult with one of our cosmetic coordinators today to see if eMatrix is right for you.
