Sublative Rejuvenation, using eMatrix™, is a Health Canada and FDA approved non-surgical skin treatment.
It is suitable for Vancouver residents of all skin types who want a safe, effective and non-invasive
improvement of their skin colour, texture, tone and consistency. The technology has been clinically
proven to reduce and eliminate the appearance of wrinkles, scarring, stretch marks, and complexion
issues caused by environmental damage.
Our patients love this technology because it stimulates healthy skin cell growth in less than 30 minutes
without lengthy downtime, achieving a visible improvement that is long lasting.
How eMatrix™ Treatments Work
Sublative Rejuvenation is used to correct textural irregularities and signs of skin aging such
as sun damage, acne scarring, wrinkle reduction, brown spots, stretch marks and other scars, with
minimal side effects. Unlike many other wrinkle reduction and acne scarring treatments, eMatrix™ is
safe and appropriate for all skin types because it doesn’t use laser energy. Rather, it uses
fractionated bi-polar radio frequency (RF) energy. It is similar to Fraxel, however it is considered to be more gentle to the skin. RF energy is also associated with a lower risk of pigmentation issues which makes it more suitable for darker skin tones. That's why it's so effective at resolving pigmentation issues as well.
To achieve optimal results, the eMatrix™ bipolar radio frequency waves penetrate deep below the
skin without heating the top layer. The therapeutic energy delivered by this device goes deeper
than many other devices, fanning out from the top to the bottom. This allows it to work more aggressively without damaging the upper layers of skin. In fact, the upper layer of the skin remains intact, relatively unaffected. The treatment improves the deeper layers of skin, at the foundation.
With Sublative Rejuvenation, the injury produced by the eMatrix™ machine removes microscopic bits
of skin beneath the skin surface, with minimal damage to the epidermis. Because these waves
penetrate far deeper than other technologies, the skin can then produce the maximum amount of
new collagen to fill out and reduce wrinkles, acne scarring or other textural issues quickly.
The recovery time is short.
As the upper layers shed while you recover, your healthier and more resilient complexion appears.
The Top Benefits of Sublative Rejuvenation
Natural skin rejuvenation: eMatrix™ sublative rejuvenation delivers natural RF energy that triggers your body to produce collagen and elastin production. Your body does all the work to achieve the improvement you want. That means there are no drugs or surgery required.
A faster visible improvement: Even after the first session, you'll notice an improvement in your complexion.
For all skin types and shades: The radiofrequency energy emitted by the ematrix™ device does not cause pigmentation issues for darker skin tones. That's why it's preferred over laser technologies.
Complements other skin treatments: This treatment can be combined with other aesthetic medical technologies for a more comprehensive improvement of your complexion. Our patients notice great improvement when they add this to a treatment protocol that includes fillers, BOTOX and lasers.
What to Expect with eMatrix™ Treatments
Each patient treatment protocol at our Burnaby, BC medical spa will be based on their individual needs. An in-depth assessment of your skin and concerns is conducted to establish this protocol. However it is
usually recommended to start with a series of three treatments, performed at 3 – 4 weeks.
Patients describe the treatment to be relatively comfortable. To improve your comfort, a topical numbing
cream may be applied but this is not necessary. You may experience a warming, prickly sensation, but it is well tolerated. The
microscopic injury produced in the skin creates a sunburn-like redness that may last for 2 to 3 days. For more extensive treatments, the redness may last a little longer. TO hide this, you can apply sterile makeup. Most Vancouver patients are back at work in a couple of days. You may experience some flakiness and crusting after about 3
to 5 days. This can be controlled with a recommended moisturizer. It is imperative that you apply moisturizer and protect your skin from the sun as you heal. Although it may be tempting, it’s best not to pick at the
Unlike other similar acne scarring and wrinkle type treatments, eMatrix™ causes minimal discomfort and
the procedures are quick. Patients can expect to see results after the second treatment and it will
continue with subsequent treatments as the collagen rebuilds. The best results are seen six months after
the last treatment as all the new collagen has matured. All skin types can be safely treated with this

Treating Stretch Marks with eMatrix™
90% of women develop stretch marks sometime in their life, usually while in their teens or during
pregnancy. Stretch marks, medically referred to as striae distensae, is a form of scarring that occurs
as a result of the tearing of tissue extending from below the skin’s surface upward. It is caused by a
rapid stretching of the skin. Because several layers of skin are affected, stretchmarks remain one of
the most difficult complexion irregularities to treat but still the most common. You may have also
failed to ever make any noticeable improvement when using at-home remedies.
You will find the appearance of your stretch marks visibly improve and, in some cases, disappear, a
pleasing outcome that we have helped many women obtain.
You can improve your stretch marks no matter what skin type you have, with minimal downtime. You’ll
also enjoy the added benefit of smoother, firmer skin that is more uniform in texture and tone!
Generally, you will find newer stretch marks easier to treat than old ones. Newer stretch marks are
characterized as reddish, glossy streaks that may be slightly depressed. They become paler in appearance
as time passes. They do not pose a health risk but are an indication of weakened and damaged skin that
you can re-strengthen with our eMatrix™ technology.
