Non-Laser Face Lift Treatment

eMatrix Sublative Rejuvenation™

eMatrix Sublative Rejuvenation™ is one of the ideal skin treatments for patients with a range of skin types and skin coloring who can benefit from tighter and firmer skin without downtime. This non-laser skin tightening method in Pittsburgh, PA often yields results right after the first eMatrix treatment.

Skin Rejuvenation for ALL Skin Types

eMatrix is an all skin color, all skin type, non-laser skin rejuvenation system. You can get effects similar to laser treatments without the laser side effects on skin types prone to discoloration.

Why should physicians be reluctant to use lasers on ethnically mixed skin?

Skin types with a genetic likelihood of hyperpigmentation are always at risk with laser treatments because lasers, even with all the cooling mechanisms at hand, affect the upper layers of the skin. This often means post-treatment hyperpigmentation is possible, as the top layers of the skin are also impacted by the laser. And while it is temporary, hyperpigmentation is always an undesirable side effect.

The eMatrix Sublative Rejuvenation™ treatment provides a way to reduce the risk of post treatment hyperpigmentation to a mere fraction of the risks posed by laser treatments because the RF energy is not absorbed by the pigment-producing cells.

What improvements can be made with an eMatrix™ treatment?

  • Acne scarring and other scars
  • Laxity and poor tone
  • Poor skin texture, tone or enlarged pores
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sun damage
  • Superficial Skin Lesions

How does it work?

Unlike a chemical peel treatment, Sublative Rejuvenation uses fractional bipolar radiofrequency (RF) energy to clear away sunspots, tighten the skin, and stimulate collagen. The advantage of RF energy is that once it harmlessly penetrates the skin, it fans out to rejuvenate a wider area than a laser, while also increasing collagen production in the skin. eMatrix non-laser skin tightening treatments are safe and effective for people of all skin types and colors.


A series of eMatrix treatments is required, and each one takes only about 20 minutes to complete. eMatrix treatments typically involve little discomfort and are often described as a warm, prickly sensation.

For optimal results, we recommend a series of three treatments, spaced four weeks apart. Although, your specific treatment protocol will vary based on the condition of your skin and the results you desire.

Recovery & Results

After treatment, your skin will likely look pink or red and feel warm like you have a sunburn. The pinkness will last one to two days. Because the treatment is non-ablative, you will be able to wash treated areas and wear make up the very next day.

You will most likely see results after the first treatment and your skin will continue to improve for up to six months post treatment. Because eMatrix renews collagen production, your lifestyle and exposure to the sun will significantly influence how long your results will last. As with all Acqua Blu treatments, your provider will strongly recommend daily use of sunscreen.
