Fractional radiofrequency E-matrix to remove scars

Fractional radiofrequency E-matrix to remove scars

At Ribe Clinic we have all the latest technologies to perform medical aesthetic treatments to remove or reduce scars. Among the most novel treatments to reduce scars is fractional radiofrequency. Depending on the type of scar (acne scar, traumatic scar or surgical scar), the severity of the scar and its age, we will use different parameters and propose a number of sessions.


Patients ask us: Can I get rid of my scars? Removing a scar leaving a completely intact skin is not possible, since there has been a rupture of the integrity of the skin. But the treatments to remove scars can attenuate them to the point where they are very little visible. The satisfaction of patients in these treatments to reduce scars is high.

Thus, we have an ablative fractional radiofrequency to remove scars, whether acne scars, surgical scars or traumatic scars. It is a new line of safe and effective technology based on radiofrequency applied with a matrix.

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

Frequently asked questions about the treatment to remove scars with fractional radiofrequency E-matrix

How does E matrix subablative radiofrequency technology work in the treatment to remove scars?

Radiofrequency energy is applied precisely on scarred skin with a hand piece that has a matrix. By emitting the radiofrequency through this matrix, the energy penetrates the skin creating some 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, that is in charge of accelerating the process of scar repair creating new tissue of better quality.

Progressively, after these sessions of treatment to reduce scars, the production of new collagen and healthy skin cells is activated. They “fill in” and repair the scars with a new collagen and change the fibrosis of the scar with a higher quality collagen. In addition, the texture of the skin becomes softer and more elastic.

Is E-matrix subablative radiofrequency treatment adequate to remove my scars?

The E-matrix subablative radiofrequency treatment is a safe and effective solution for all skin types. It is important to make a medical visit to evaluate your case and be in expert hands in this innovative technology to reduce your scars.

How many sessions should I do of E-matrix subablative radiofrequency to reduce scars?

It will depend on the type and degree of the scars. The usual protocol is 5 sessions, 1 session every 3-4 weeks.

Is the treatment to reduce my scars with E-matrix subablative radiofrequency painful? What will I notice?

To reduce scars with E-matrix subablative radiofrequency, anesthetic cream is applied 1 hour before in the area to be treated. During the treatment to reduce scars, which lasts about 15 minutes, there are slight discomforts that the patients describe as “small punctures” or a very tolerant stinging heat.

What should I do after treatment to reduce my scars with E-matrix subablative radiofrequency?

After treatment with e-matrix subablative radiofrequency to reduce scars, the skin shows edema (mild swelling) and erythema (mild redness) similar to mild sunburn. A soothing and restorative cream is applied twice a day for 3-4 days. The routine and social life is resumed within a few hours.

When are the results of the treatment with radiofrequency subablative E matrix to reduce my scars seen?
