Fractional dermabrasion

Matrix RF represents a new fractional device based on the RF-power and adapted for rejuvenation of the skin by fractional correction of surface of the skin and reducing wrinkles. Modern medicine considers appropriate usage of RF-technology for non-ablative lifting of the skin by volumetric heating of the deep layers of the dermis. An applicator of Matrix RF is the first RF-applicator (without using a laser and light energy) that can produce ablation/coagulation/necrosis and regeneration of skin surface. The applicator of Matrix RF can supply RF-energy to the skin surface with next fractional ablation of the epidermis and can cause coagulation/necrosis or subnecrosis of the dermis with minimal affection of skin areas, which begin the recovery process and accelerate the healing of the treated area. The device has a regulated, controlled action, because it is possible to control the ratio of ablation /coagulation/necrosis effects, depth of ablation zones and coagulation limits of surrounded tissue in accordance with the aims of the procedure, medical conditions and the characteristics of the treated skin areas. Clinical tests of the applicator of Matrix RF clearly confirm the safety and efficacy of the device for renovation of the skin surface.

Matrix RF is notable for fractional impact on the treated skin surface, which is achieved by means of the applicator tip, equipped with a plurality of electrodes, and also using a special method of application - on dry skin without additional cooling. RF-energy passes through the skin between the rows of electrodes and in this way the greatest volume and depth effects are achieved at the points of direct contact between the electrode and the skin. Different energy density in the path of RF-energy leads to different effects not only at different depths, but also in the space between the electrodes. Due to the fact that the impedance of the dry stratum corneum is higher, RF-power passed through the electrodes (as by monopolar one), causing the ablation first of all. In deeper layers of tissue (the lower layer of the epidermis and dermis) impedance is lower because the tissue is saturated with water and electrolytes. So here RF energy passes between the electrodes (as by bipolar RF), creating a wider effect in the form of disseminated coagulation /necrosis with small tissue ablation. In connection with the absorption and dissipation of energy, areas of irreversible RF-effect (i. e. ablation or coagulation /necrosis) are surrounded by areas of tissue that were subject to partial coagulation /necrosis, subnecrosis or stimulation. In addition, in deeper layers of the skin a zone of temporary thermal impact occurs, but in it the density of RF-energy does not reach the level that is required for the occurrence of other biological effects. It was prescribed that the energy level and the percentage of the contact surface are the main factors improving skin texture: increasing of energy levels and /or decreasing in the percentage of the contact surface improve clinical results.  So this technology exceeds other technologies of uniform ablation of the whole surface (such as laser or high frequency) at which the whole surface is exposed to the impact, and it leads to prolonged recovery process, healing and slow coming of the desired effect. Clinical studies have shown that the usage of Matrix RF applicator is safe for almost all types of skin and leads to a significant improvement of the skin, which becomes smooth, elastic, light and without small wrinkles. Moreover, Matrix RF in its effectiveness is not worth than as fractional photothermolysis technology, but it is simpler to use.

Care after the procedure

1. One should apply an emollient cream on the treated area.

2. After the procedure the skin does not require cooling. You can use cold (not ice-cold) wrap. Perhaps the healing or anti-inflammatory cream can be prescribed.

3. Tiny scabs less than 1 mm in diameter are usually formed within 24-72 hours after procedure and kept for several days. One should not touch or scrape scabs, even if they are scratched, and they should be given the opportunity to exfoliate naturally.

4. Blistered or ulcered skin should be treated with prescribed antibiotic ointment or burn cream on the discretion of the doctor.

5. During the first two days after the procedure, one should take measures to prevent injury of the treated area of skin: avoid hot bath, massage, etc. The skin should be kept clean to avoid contamination or infection; one should avoid any mechanical or thermal damage of this area.

6. Moisturizer can be applied only for a few hours a day (about ? a day) after each procedure, and then it should be used regularly throughout the course of procedures. A make-up, if desired, can be done only after 24 hours after treatment, on treated area if there is no undesirable reaction. Usually within 24 hours after the procedure, patients may use a conventional soap, but not exfoliating soap or scrub.

7. The patient must use strong sunscreens (at least 30 SPF) and protect the treated area from sunlight for at least one month after the procedure. Any tanning (sun, solarium or the use of artificial tanning lotions) are not allowed on the treated area during the course of procedures. The tan after the procedure may cause hyperpigmentation.

 

Contraindications:

• implanted pacemaker or defibrillator.

• Surface metal or other implants in the area of impact.

• Having a history or current skin cancer, and any other current types of cancer and precancerous conditions.

• Any type of cancer in history.

• Severe concomitant diseases, such as cardiovascular disorders.

• Pregnancy or breast-feeding.

• Immune disorders caused by therapy or immunosuppressive diseases such as AIDS and HIV.

• Diseases that may be triggered by the light of the used wavelength, for example, systemic lupus erythematosus, porphyria or a history of epilepsy.

• Patients with a history of disease, exacerbation of which can be triggered by heat, for example, herpes simplex, can receive treatment only if they meet the necessary preventive measures.

• Poorly controlled endocrine diseases, such as diabetes or polycystic ovary.

• Any active skin processes in the treatment, such as pain, psoriasis, eczema and itchy skin.

• Skin disorders, keloids, abnormal wound healing in history, as well as very dry and fragile skin.

• Hemorrhagic coagulopathy history or the use of anticoagulants.

• The use of drugs, herbs, food additives and vitamins, which are known that they increase the photosensitivity when exposed to light of the wavelength used, for example, the use of isotretinoin (Accutane) within the previous 6 months, or Hypericum tetracycline during the previous two weeks.

• The use of drugs that can stimulate hair growth, such as minoxidil.

• Laser correction of fae and deep chemical peeling within the last 3 months, in the event of exposure to the face applicators.

• Any surgical procedure in treatment over the past 3 months or until complete healing.

• Treatment on the top of tattoo or permanent makeup.

• Severe sunburn: sun, after tanning or the use of creams for sunburn in the past 2 weeks.

• Electrolysis, waxing and plucking the last 6 weeks prior to treatment.

• At the discretion of a doctor - any state in which the treatment procedure can be unsafe for the patient.
