FRACtional-CELLular Resurfacing with Matrix RF
The FRACtional-CELLular Resurfacing with Matrix RF is considered one of the most exciting advancements in facial rejuvenation. This new technology, “Fractional Cellular Skin Resurfacing”, is engineered to be much more effective by treating only a portion or fraction of the skin during each session. The results are amazing with improved skin color, texture and smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles. The appearance of acne and surgical scarring is dramatically reduced without the downtime or redness associated with other traditional resurfacing technologies.
FRACtional-CELLular with Matrix RF works by essentially “pixilating” the skin. In the same way a digital photograph can be altered one pixel at a time, the Matrix RF treats the skin one imperfection at a time. This “fractional” treatment of the skin allows for faster healing with visible results in skin tone, texture, fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars and other forms of scarring.
FRACtional-CELLular with Matrix RF treatments are effective only when performed in a series of sessions because each session treats only 20 to 25 percent of the skin. By treating a percentage of skin during each session, the surrounding untreated skin drives the healing process, filling in the treated area with healthy, more youthful looking skin. This “fractional” treatment of the skin creates seamless, radiant skin.
Frequently Asked Questions
How is FRACtional-CELLular withMatrix RF different from other laser treatments? FRACtional-CELLular with Matrix RF is the World’sfirst Non-laser resurfacing treatment. Non-laser skin rejuvenation offers several advantages over a laser procedure. Ablative laser treatments are effective but require a lengthy recovery. The Matrix RF offers the same effectiveness as the ablative laser treatment but with rapid healing time. What are the benefits of the FRACtional-CELLular RF Matrix treatments?
The FRACtional-CELLular with Matrix RF provides same results as obtained with ablative lasers but offers the benefits of less downtime and the ability to treat sagging tissue around the eyes and crow’s feet because protective eyewear is not required. Because the revolutionary technology of the Matrix RF bypasses the outer layer of skin, make-up can be applied 12 to 24 hours after treatment. Some people are able to return to work and social obligations the same day as the treatment. Other people may need more time to heal. Call and schedule a consultation for more details. How many treatments will I need?
3 to 5 sessions are needed, spaced 4 weeks apart. Results are immediate and progressive. How are FRACtional-CELLular with Matrix RFtreatments performed?
A topical anesthetic is applied to the treatment area approximately 25 minutes before the session. The procedure takes about 45 minutes for a full face. Is FRACtional-CELLular with Matrix RFtreatment painful?
Due to the topical anesthetic, most people find that a FRACtional-CELLular treatment with Matrix RF is quite comfortable. What should I expect after the treatment?
For the first few minutes after treatment, your skin may have a slight sunburn feel and it will appear slightly pink or red. This quickly subsides once cold compresses are applied after the treatment. Over the next couple of days the redness will naturally turn to a bronze color. At that time makeup can be applied. Your skin will begin to flake microscopically; you will barely notice it and your skin will not feel dry. You will notice more radiance and smoothness to your skin. What precautions should I take after a FRACTional-CELLular treatment with Matrix RF?
It is important to apply a sunscreen of SPF 30 at least twice a day. Avoid direct sun exposure during the healing process following the treatment.
Smooth out the lines of time with a treatment that utilizes combined energies to effectively and gently reduce mild to moderate wrinkles. As we age, the skin’s natural elasticity (collagen and elastin production) and the ability to retain moisture decrease causing wrinkles. Matrix IR is a precise wrinkle reduction treatment stimulating collagen production and the natural rehydration of the skin. Excellent for the forehead, mouth, eyes and nasolabial lines. No injections. No downtime.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does the Matrix IR wrinkle reduction work?
The Elos technology precisely heats the connective tissue within the targeted area. That stimulates collagen production and produces a firming effect in lax skin.
Is Matrix IR right for me?
Yes, it’s a safe and effective treatment for all skin types.
When can I expect to see results?
Most clients start to notice improvements in wrinkles by the third treatment. The total number of required sessions depends on your skin condition. Schedule a consultation to establish your personalized treatment schedule.
Does it hurt?
Most clients undergo the treatment easily. A built-in cooled treatment tip insures constant skin surface protection and comfort during treatment. Clients return to normal activity immediately after treatment.
