eMatrix™ (Sublative Rejuvenation)
The Next Generation’s New Skin Resurfacing Treatment in San Diego, CA!
eMatrix laser skin resurfacing treatment is a non-light-based treatment that uses radiofrequency energy to gently resurface the skin over 4-5 treatments while still maintaining the results that more aggressive laser treatments produce.
It tightens loose surface skin, improves the appearance of the skin’s texture, and reduces mild to dynamic wrinkles, acne scars, and stretch marks. It can also tighten pores and brighten dull, lackluster skin. This treatment is even more convenient because there is no lengthy downtime associated with those more aggressive skin resurfacing procedures.
The secret behind eMatrix Sublative Rejuvenation is radiofrequency energy and the specific way it is delivered into the skin. During treatment, intense heat is generated beneath the skin’s surface without damaging the skin’s surface in the process. The heat from the radiofrequency energy stimulates collagen and elastin production in the deeper layers of the skin.
Collagen and elastin are two proteins in the skin that are responsible for keeping the skin smooth, firm, and beautiful. When the production of these two proteins is increased, it results in tighter, more refined, and brighter skin in the treated areas.
At Eros Beauty and Wellness, Dr. Christine Eros offers the latest in gentle fractionated therapies to her patients to help make wellness achievable and convenient for everyone.

What is Sublative Rejuvenation?
Sublative Rejuvenation (also known as eMatrix treatment) is a laser treatment that uses radiofrequency to correct various skin issues, including wrinkles, scarring, texture, and overall radiance. Sublative is a step above other skin resurfacing treatments because it allows for deeper skin penetration, allowing the treatment to reach underlying areas and spur new collagen production.
The energy being used, whether it’s laser or light, to achieve the desired results must be delivered below the skin without overheating and damaging the top layer of skin. This effect has been a challenge to overcome with other more aggressive treatments because they work by overheating the top layer of the skin to the point of complete removal, forcing new skin to develop while also requiring a significant amount of recovery time.
Sublative Rejuvenation uses fractional bi-polar radio frequency that penetrates through the skin, sending more of that powerful energy beneath the skin’s surface. In the process, collagen production is maximized while keeping the top layer of the skin protected. As a result, it’s safe for all skin types and requires less downtime than other treatment methods.
5 Ways Sublative Rejuvenation Can Change Your Skin
1. Treat Fine Lines and Wrinkles
As we age, our skin loses its firmness. It begins to sag, especially in the mid-face region and along the jaw, creating stubborn, unsightly wrinkles that can make anyone look or feel older than they actually are. With Sublative Rejuvenation, the skin is tightened by stimulating collagen and elastin production.
2. Stretch Marks
Whether your stretch marks are from pregnancy, weight fluctuation, or a genetic trait, you have probably wasted countless dollars on topical treatments that have promised results but don’t seem to achieve anything. Many patients have turned to Sublative Rejuvenation to help treat their stretch marks and start their journey of being proud and confident in their own skin.
Scarring from acne or other causes can be challenging to hide, even with expensive cosmetics. By stimulating the skin’s collagen production and promoting cell growth, the scar tissue will break down, leading to smooth, fresh, and vibrant-looking skin.
4. Uneven Skin Tone
Sun damage throughout the years can leave our skin with hyperpigmentation, dark spots, and visible sun damage. Sublative Rejuvenation is an effective way to restore the upper layer of the skin to an even texture and shade. It’s also safe enough that you won’t have to worry about it causing more damage with radiofrequency energy rather than light.
5. Minimize the Appearance of Pores
Enlarged pores can be difficult to treat at home. Even with the most expensive cosmetics and strongest acids offered at stores — still, the pores refuse to shrink. With Sublative Rejuvenation, the radiofrequency energy can penetrate deep down in the skin’s layer and blast the dirt, debris, and oil that have clogged and enlarged the pores. After just a few treatments, you’ll notice a smooth, even complexion.

You may feel a warm prickly sensation while the procedure takes place, which is usually well-tolerated. Downtime is minimal compared to other skin treatments, and you can resume your normal activities immediately afterward.
After treatment, you may experience a mild sunburn-like sensation that can last for 24 to 72 hours, depending on your skin’s sensitivity. Mild swelling and redness may accompany this. You can apply an ice pack for 10 to 15 minutes every hour as needed. Until redness has completely resolved, avoid direct sunlight, aggressive scrubbing, exfoliants, cosmetics, swimming, hot water, and activities that may cause perspiration. Be sure to apply a high-quality, broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or greater daily.
Most people see results after their first treatment; however, your skin will continue to improve for up to six months afterward as collagen production ramps up. Like most aesthetic treatments, some maintenance may be necessary to enhance and maintain results.
