Thus, for stretch marks removal we perform fractional subablative radiofrequency treatment, whether for recent (red striae) or whitish atrophic (white striae). It is a new line of safe and effective medical technology based on radiofrequency applied with a matrix.

The medical device is called E-matrix (by Syneron Candela).

Frequently asked questions about the treatment of stretch marks with fractional radiofrequency E-matrix

How does the E matrix subablative radiofrequency technology work in the treatment of stretch marks removal?

The radiofrequency energy is applied precisely on the lines of stretch mark (white or red striae) with a hand piece that has a matrix. By emitting radiofrequency through this matrix, the energy penetrates the skin (papillary and reticular dermis) creating treatment columns and leaving a healthy skin around the columns that is not affected. Thus, we have an area that we treat and another that does not, which is in charge of accelerating the skin repair process creating new tissue of better quality. The production of collagen and elastin and healthy skin cells is progressively activated. The stretch marks become narrower, the skin more trophic due to a higher quality collagen, so that the stretch marks are less apparent. In addition, the texture of the skin becomes softer and more elastic.
