Acne Scars


Two advanced skin rejuvenation treatments are combined to produce optimal results. eTwo combines Sublative & Sublime technologies for skin resurfacing, acne scars and stretch marks removal. The eTwo™ treatment combines Sublative Rejuvenation (eMatrix Resurfacing) and Sublime Skin Contouring (formerly known as ReFirme) treatments.

eTwo is a treatment that uses radio-frequency energy (electrical as opposed to laser, which is light energy) to deliver an effective fractional and tightening treatment to reduce and remove stretch marks or acne scarring.

Sublime Skin Contouring (formerly known as ReFirme) is a treatment that combines infrared light with radiofrequency to firm skin as well as tightens lax skin.

The combo eTwo treatment is excellent for the skin of any color and has little downtime or disruption of daily activities. Discomfort is minimal.

The two together yield an improved skin surface regularity as well as firming and tightening.

How do I know if I need eTwo™?

eTwo™ is a treatment for those who would like to improve wrinkling and sagging of the skin, reducing pore size appearance, and diminish stretch marks or acne scarring.

How does eTwo™ work?

The eTwo combines the Sublative Rejuvenation (eMatrix Skin Resurfacing) and Sublime Skin Contouring (formerly known as ReFirme) treatments to reverse aging and skin damage. eTwo includes treatments of both eMatrix and Sublime.

The Sublime treatment uses the combination of light energy and radiofrequency energy to deeply heat layers of the skin while protecting the surface of the skin simultaneously. Medium to deep heating of the skin activates fibroblasts (deep skin cells) signaling new collagen to form and existing collagen to tighten, which could occur over a 4-6 months period.

The eMatrix treatment uses radio frequency to deliver an effective but controlled fractional treatment. Each pulse delivers the energy via a grid of matrix spots on the surface as well as just under the surface. Fibroblasts (skin cells that produce collagen) are activated within the treated zones signal collagen to regenerate and remodel, yielding improved skin tone and texture. The surrounding tissue of the untreated areas supports and accelerate the healing process of the skin.

What are the risks and side effects?

The procedure is mildly uncomfortable. Side effects are redness and swelling after the procedure that lasts from hours to days, and occasionally even up to a week, depending on the body parts and required energy for each treatment.

Prior to treatment all potential risks and side effects will be discussed with you by your medical provider and cosmetic coordinator.

How would I look after the treatment?

Most patients have redness and swelling with eMatrix for a few hours to 3 days after the treatment (on body parts may last longer). You may apply make-up to the treated area immediately after the Sublative rejuvenation procedure. Tiny crusts may develop and are present for a few days. Results develop over time and with subsequent treatments. Full results may be appreciated at three to six months following the last treatment.
