Matrix IR Wrinkle Reduction
Featuring elos Fractional Technology
With Matrix IR Wrinkle Reduction, you can comfortably achieve a more youthful appearance with no downtime. This treatment is the first and only wrinkle treatment that uses combined energies. It's truly the next generation of safe and effective wrinkle treatment technology.
Consider this treatment if you have:
- Unwanted moderate wrinkles
- Superficial acne scarring
- Enlarged pores
- Rough skin texture from chronic sun-damage
Pigmentation from chronic sun-damage may also improve over the series of treatments.
How We Perform Matrix IR Wrinkle Reduction
In a method that is safe and effective for all skin types, Matrix IR heats the dermal tissue within a targeted treatment area. This stimulates collagen production and produces a firming effect in the skin. Mild to moderate wrinkles are reduced, and the texture of your skin becomes more smooth and elastic.
During treatment with elōs fractional, the combination of laser energy and conducted RF energy induces skin injury that is maximized in micro-thermal zones (regions of greatest energy intensity) with an accelerated healing process supported by the tissue surrounding the micro-thermal zones. As a result, there is virtually no downtime with elōs fractional treatments.
The WRA combines safe and effective levels of laser and radiofrequency (electric current) energies to remodel the dermal layer of the skin by stimulating new collagen growth, creating a smoother and softer appearance. Both laser and radiofrequency have been used separately for decades in medicine and surgery, but the WRA exclusively combines light and radio-frequency energy for ideal treatment outcomes with a very low risk of side effects and virtually no downtime.
What can I expect after treatment with Matrix IR?
You will leave our office with slight pinkness or no pinkness at all, and you can return to your routine right away. Wrinkle reduction becomes noticeable between 2-3 treatment sessions. Some patients note improvement even after the first treatment. The total number of required treatment sessions depends on your skin’s condition.
How many treatments are needed, and how often?
Most patients will achieve best results with 3-5 treatments, spaced 3-4 weeks apart.
How does the treatment feel?
Patients say it feels like a hot pinch sensation, similar to snapping an elastic band on your skin. Comfort is enhanced by either cooling the skin during treatment and/or use of a topical numbing cream.
Is treatment with elōs™ safe?
Any medical laser procedure has a risk of side effects such as blistering, crusting, and pigment changes. These risks are rare and usually quickly resolved. elōs incorporates technology that minimizes these risks. The laser handpiece is also cooled for skin protection and comfort during the procedure.
