Photofacial or eMatrix

Photofacials are best used to treat the signs of general aging and photoaging. Photoaging simply refers to the damage your skin receives from the sun or artificial UV light.

eMatrix treatments are best used to rejuvenate the skin overall.

Treatments: Technology Used

Firstly, Photofacials use IPL, intense pulsed light, to penetrate deep into the skin. With this in mind, IPL Photofacials use a non-ablative laser. Therefore, this means it works deep within the skin and leaves the surface of the skin unharmed. In addition. this treatment boasts results such as an increase in collagen and elastin production.

Unlike IPL technology, eMatrix uses radiofrequency technology to penetrate into the skin. In addition, it is a skin resurfacing procedure. Moreover, this means that it removes a very tiny layer of skin. Overall, this also produces results such as increased collagen and elastin production. As a result, the skin becomes tighter. Furthermore, fine lines and wrinkles fade away.


Due to techniques used, Photofacials are a fast, painless process. In addition, it is recommended that you will need anywhere between three to six treatments for the most dramatic results. Furthermore, there is no downtime.

eMatrix treatments require some downtime from skin care. As a result, it is recommended to take three to five days off from using skin care products. Anywhere from three to five treatments are required for the most dramatic results.
