Camarillo area dermatologist Ross Kaplan, M.D. is proud to announce that his practice, Coastal Dermatology, now offers Blu-U Photo-dynamic therapy for acne and Sublative Rejuvenation™ treatments using the eMatrix™ device to treat any acne scarring. The combination is a complete acne treatment.
Treatment begins with BLU-U photo-dynamic therapy, a safe and gentle treatment for acne with little discomfort and no need for pills. Photo-dynamic therapy (PDT) works by applying a photosensitive material to the skin, which is absorbed. The BLU-U device shines a specific wave-length of light that targets the photosensitive cream, effectively destroying the bacteria that cause acne.
As a follow-up for any acne scarring, Dr. Kaplan uses the eMatrix, a unique device that can achieve the results of aggressive laser treatments without the downtime. Sublative Rejuvenation with eMatrix uses bi-polar radio frequency technology to stimulate regrowth by generating heat in the deep layers of skin. Because sublation works by causing heat with bi-polar radio frequency and not applying a specific wavelength of laser energy, the eMatrix is also safe for use on all skin types and degrees of pigmentation to treat acne scarring.
“The entire treatment process is quick and virtually painless,” says Dr. Kaplan, “We’ve been able to reduce acne and acne scarring with minimal downtime.”
Treatment of the entire face typically takes less than thirty minutes. Improvements can be observed in as little as a couple of weeks and typically continue for up to one year. Patients generally require three to four treatments to achieve smoother skin. Unlike other non-aggressive treatments such as Botox or fillers that also have immediate results, Sublative Rejuvenation with the eMatrix works from the inside out, stimulating cell growth deep within the skin.
Coastal dermatology had previously been applying the eMatrix device only for treating wrinkles and facial laxity, which uses Sublative Rejuvenation to stimulate collagen growth without full surface ablation.
