Loose and Saggy Skin Treatment

Loose and Saggy Skin TreatmenteMatrix stands out among various med spa skin resurfacing alternatives available in the market today as it offers dramatic outcomes with low downtime and minimal discomfort.  

The proven treatment of eMatrix delivers fragmented bi-polar RF energy in a matrix pattern deep into the dermis enabling the skin surrounding the treated tissues to remain unaffected and expedite the healing process.

Dr. Q Medical Spa, led by the judicious board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Suzanne Quardt, provides skin rejuvenation treatments to patients in Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, and surrounding communities.


How does it Work?

The cells that the matrix dots target will enable the skin to generate new, healthy skin cells and promote the generation of collagen. In the human body, collagen is a vital structural protein that enables the skin to appear taut, supple, and youthful.

The aging process slows the collagen production process. However, treatments such as eMatrix encourage new collagen production offering younger looking skin. eMatrix offers a multi-treatment system that allows the treatment to be minimally invasive. Patients can conveniently undergo these treatments without disruptions to their routine.


The eMatrix Procedure

A majority of patients do not require anesthesia for eMatrix med spa treatment, and the treatments are typically tolerated well. The patient will experience some slight discomfort akin to a warm, tingling sensation. However, most patients comprehend that the benefits of the procedure outweigh the minimal discomfort associated with it.

The treatment provider uses a specialized hand piece to direct RF energy into the deeper skin layers during the eMatrix procedure.

The energy penetrates the uppermost skin layer without causing any damage while promoting collagen production as well as cell renewal deep underneath the superficial skin layer. The time taken for an eMatrix treatment session is usually under 30 minutes.


eMatrix Risks and Side-Effects

eMatrix is a safe treatment that is generally well-received by a majority of patients. This treatment leaves the uppermost skin layer unharmed. Therefore, the side-effects and risks are minimal. After the treatment, the patient will experience slight discomfort from skin inflammation and roughness due to the procedure. However, these side-effects are mild and manageable.  

Skin discoloration (hyperpigmentation) is not likely with this treatment as it does not disturb the superficial layer of skin. However, patients should protect the skin from sun damage to prevent any issues.


Benefits of Sublative Rejuvenation

  • As Sublative Rejuvenation triggers cell re-growth and collagen generation by delivering heat within the skin instead of outside, it is considered a more natural approach to mitigate aging signs and improve skin laxity.
  • Patients usually experience outcomes after the initial treatment session itself as the self-healing process prompted by RF energy is very efficient and fast.
  • eMatrix can be safely administered on all types of skin. Certain skin conditions such as eczema may prevent patients from undergoing the procedure until the condition has resolved or subsided.
  • At times, eMatrix Sublative Rejuvenation treatment may be administered in combination with other dermatological cosmetic procedures such as soft tissue fillers.
  • Minimal downtime.
