New York, NY (PRWEB) June 25, 2010
Dr. David J. Goldberg, a leading dermatologist and Director of Skin Laser & Surgery Specialists of New York and New Jersey, announced today that the practice will be offering the new eMatrix™ treatment for acne scarring in all of its New York, New Jersey and Boca Raton offices. The new treatment uses sublative radio-frequency energy to provide better results with less risk and less patient downtime.
According to Dr. Goldberg, “Studies suggest that up to 80% of Americans are affected by acne during their teens and early twenties. For some people, even after they’ve outgrown their acne, they may be left with permanent scarring on the face. The eMatrix™ treatment is a radically different approach to treating acne scars. Because skin absorbs radio frequency energy differently than laser energy, the eMatrix™ is able to promote healthy new collagen development deeper within the skin, while limiting damage to the outer, or epidermal, layer of skin. Patients are seeing excellent results, with less risk and less downtime. What’s more, unlike most laser resurfacing, the eMatrix™ can be safely used for all types of skin, even darker skin.”
The eMatrix™ works by delivering bi-polar radio frequency energy to create a fractional pattern of small wounds on the skin. This thermal damage stimulates the body’s natural healing process, encouraging the development of new, healthy collagen, which will lead to tighter, smoother skin. In addition to acne scarring, the eMatrix™ can also be used to treat fine lines and wrinkles, skin laxity, scars, texture problems, sun damage, and some stretch marks.
Dr. Goldberg said, “The treatment is fast, easy and very comfortable for the patient. We use a topical anesthetic for patient comfort, and the entire face can usually be treated in 20 minutes or less.”
While treatment will vary according to each patient’s individual condition, in many cases, patients will require three treatments sessions, four to six weeks apart, for the best results. There is no long-term maintenance required.
