Although stretchmarks resemble scars, they actually are not. Stretchmarks appear the way they do because the upper layer of skin is laying over gaps in the lower layer of skin that have been created by stretched or torn elastin fibers. These unsightly marks often appear following rapid gains in body size that abruptly stretch the skin. Stretchmarks often originally appear as bands of wrinkled skin, starting out as pink, red, or purple streaks, and then later becoming silvery white. Stretchmarks often appear during times of hormonal changes such as puberty or pregnancy. In fact, about half of all women develop them on the abdomen or breasts during pregnancy. Since the tendency to develop stretchmarks appears to be inherited, there is no sure way to prevent them.

eMatrix or Sublative Rejuvenation is a skin treatment that can improve stretch marks. eMatrix uses fractionated bi-polar radio frequency to penetrate through the skin–sending more energy beneath the surface of the skin to really maximize collagen production–while keeping the top layer of the skin intact. Newer stretchmarks respond better to treatment than stretchmarks that are several years old. In general, some patients respond better than others so it is difficult to determine how much improvement any one individual can achieve. The appearance of the stretchmarks might be improved minimally, or even up to 60% – 80% or better.

This treatment is safe for all skin types.

How Does it Work?

Energy is applied to the skin in a matrix. The healthy skin around the spots accelerates the healing process. Post treatment, new collagen and healthy skin calls are produced. Although the number of treatments will depend on the area and depth of skin concern, most people see optimal results after a series of 3 treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart.

Is eMatrix Right for Me?

Does it Hurt?

During treatment, many patients feel a warm, prickly sensation as energy enters their skin. After treatment a pink or red "sunburn" appearance is also common. Topical anesthetic ointments and cooling are used to reduce unpleasant feelings during treatment.

Generally 3 to 5 or more treatments will be needed, at four to six week intervals. Newer or thinner stretchmarks may need fewer treatments than older or wider stretchmarks. Clients often start to see results after one or two treatments. Over time and with follow-up procedures, your results will be even more visible as new collagen develops.
