You don't have to be Botoxed up to the eyeballs to 'iron-out' frown lines. Even the world's most iconic beauties have them (just Google Kate Moss, SJP or even the young Emma Watson) so us mere mortals are not alone!
If you'd like your permanently etched frown lines to fade away then eMatrix's new 10 minute Expression Perfection treatment will tackle them head-on by working deep down to naturally stimulate the growth of healthy new collagen from the inside out.
This new energy based facial rejuvenation treatment boasts minimal 'down time' and works deeper than any other traditional fractional resurfacing treatment on the market. In fact, it's the world's first sublative fractional radio frequency resurfacing treatment.
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, collagen, which results in tighter, smoother, more youthful skin. The treatment is fast, easy and tolerable for the patient. A topical anesthetic cream may be applied for patient comfort, and the forehead can usually be treated in just 10 minutes.
This clever technology boasts a radically different approach for facial rejuvenation. Because skin absorbs radio frequency energy differently than laser energy, eMatrix is able to promote healthy new collagen development deeper within the skin, while limiting damage to the outer, or epidermal, layer of skin.
While treatment will vary according to each patient's individual condition, in many cases, patients will only require three treatment sessions four to six weeks apart for best results, and the good news is that there is no long-term maintenance required.
Dr Elizabeth Dancy, Founder & Creator or Bijoux Medi-Spa, Belgravia explains how it works:
"eMatrix is the most exciting new energy based device on the market offering superlative skin rejuvenation.
This fractional skin resurfacing treatment is delivered via a computer-driven system, allowing the practitioner and the client to decide on the level of penetration, from a gentle stimulating treatment with no downtime to the full-on resurfacing with 3 - 5 days downtime.
Whereas fractional laser resurfacing devices remove (ablates) a column of tissue within the skin, e-matrix removes a teardrop-shaped area. This means that the surface of the skin is barely disturbed and the healing is much quicker with more predictable results.
The skin is only open for about 12 hours, reducing the risk of infection and scarring to near zero.The unique ablation profile ensures that the skin heals quickly - on a full treatment the skin heals in just 12 hours."
When Would You Expect to See the Full Results?
Post treatment skin will be instantly tighter, with pores appearing less enlarged. The full benefits will be seen after 60 days due to the gradual re-growth of collagen and overall skin healing process.
And the Downtime?
Very minimal. Immediately post treatment you would expect skin redness which would start to reduce after one hour. The following day you may observe some fine dots that can be covered with make up and over the next 3-5 days redness will fade away.
