During the April 23 episode of "THE Doctors," Dr. Tess Mauricio of Scripps Ranch Dermatology and Cosmetic Center in San Diego will perform a Matrix RF(TM) treatment, on Regina Smith, a former bachelorette on ABC's "The Bachelor." Developed by Syneron(TM) Medical Ltd. (NASDAQ: ELOS), http://www.syneron.com, an innovator in the development, marketing and sales of elos(TM) combined-energy medical aesthetic devices, Matrix RF provides fractional ablation and resurfacing of the skin to treat mild to moderate wrinkles and other textural irregularities, as well as red and brown spots.
Take a Look at Dr. Mauricio's Before and After Photos
Traditional fractional aesthetic devices utilizing laser energy are associated with higher risk of treatment and post-treatment complications when treating skin of color due to the impact of the high intensity laser on more darkly pigmented skin. A promising new approach is to treat the skin by replacing the laser energy with highly controlled bi-polar radio frequency (RF). The newly FDA-cleared Matrix RF is the only fractional resurfacing device utilizing this form of non-laser based fractional energy delivery, greatly enhancing both safety and patient outcomes for skin of all colors (for more information about skin types see http://matrixskin.com/content/about-skin-types).
"Regina represents the growing population of patients seeking aesthetic treatments who were previously turned away due to the high probability of complications when treating skin of color with any type of light or laser based aesthetic technologies," said board-certified cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Mauricio. "In my clinical study of Matrix RF, I treated ethnically diverse patients with a variety of skin types and found the treatments produced tremendous results with no adverse effects."
The Matrix RF works by treating the selected skin area via a grid of tiny matrix spots. The surrounding skin acts as a healing reservoir, regenerating and restoring collagen while accelerating the healing process to ensure limited downtime. Post treatment, patients notice a reduction of mild to moderate wrinkles and superficial skin discolorations, as well as a smoother and tighter skin texture.
The Matrix RF is capable of treating all skin types of skin color from Caucasian to Olive and darker skin!
Dr. Mauricio is an international authority in the field of aesthetic laser treatments and has educated hundreds of physicians worldwide. She has trained and worked with world renowned leaders in the field of dermatology.
The Matrix RF (also known as eMatrix) is the first non-laser, non-light-based technology capable of tunable aesthetic fractional skin resurfacing. It has a minimal downtime and has shown great results for treating wrinkles, skin tightening, acne scars, and improvement of overall quality, pores, and texture. Dr. Mauricio's clinic, Scripps Ranch Dermatology , is one of the first clinics in the nation to have the Matrix RF.
