Traditional laser and energy based treatments works by by sending energy “through” the surface layers of skin, known as the epidermis, to the deeper layers of skin tissue, known as the dermis, without doing to much damage the epidermis. Because of the risk of damage, these treatment methods must limit the energy intensity used to avoid any possible risk of hyperpigmentation.
ePrime differs because it delivers bi-polar radio-frequency energy directly to the deeper layers of skin by using insulated microneedles. These insulated needles are used to ensure energy is only being delivered where it needs to be in order to be maximize results while significantly reducing the risk of thermal injury to the epidermis. This process stimulates the body’s natural healing response triggering the regeneration of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid restoring volume improving elasticity and overall skin appearance.
Your physician will provide local or tumescent anesthesia to manage any discomfort. Including the prep time required for the local anesthesia to take effect, treatment is usually under one hour and nlike many other devices, ePrime can see good results in a single treatment. Results will take 6-8 weeks to start becoming visible but these results will then continue to improve over the next 6 months or more. Price estimates are usually between $3000 and $5000 for a single treatment. This can vary greatly based on your geographical area and local cost of living factors.
Sublative by eMatrix, like ePrime, utilizes bi-polar radio-frequency energy delivered in a fractional manner (with small wounds spaced out, to promote healing). Sublative however is much more of a superficial treatment, while ePrime deposits energy much deeper, leading to result that are more of a volume enhancement and restoration of facial topography, and less of a ‘tightening’ effect.
