The unique, innovative technology of Infrared Light and Radiofrequency (RF) energies are combined in the Matrix IR™, a high-tech therapy for wrinkle reduction, skin firming and texture refinement. This energy combination method is applied with Elos™ technology and targets the connective tissue under the tension lines and wrinkles. The result is the production of new collagen that fills out the wrinkles after only a few sessions, using the body’s natural collagen production mechanism.
Indications for Elos™ Matrix IR™:
- Thin lines around the eyes and upper lips
- Open pores
- Uneven texture and skin tone
- Sallow, dull skin
How does the Elos™ Matrix IR™ procedure work?
A special conductive gel is applied on the treatment area and the cool tip of Matrix IR™ comes in contact with the skin, allowing the infrared and RF energies to be emitted to the deeper layers of the skin, leaving the superficial epidermis intact.
A session duration is between 15 to 40 minutes, depending on the problem, the area and extent of the area being treated. During the treatment, the patient wears special goggles for protection from the infrared light and might experience a mild pinching or burning sensation on the area being treated.
Are there any reactions or contraindications to the Elos™ Matrix IR™ procedure?
Right after the treatment the skin might have a slight erythema, which subsides after a few hours. No recovery time is required so patients can resume their usual daily activities right after the treatment. Small temporary abrasions and/or dry skin scabs are common but temporary reactions, especially during more aggressive treatments.
Strong chemical peels, laser treatments, ablative treatments or depilation are not allowed for at least 10 days before and after the procedure.
Is the Elos™ Matrix IR™ treatment painful?
The treatment is not painful, but a mild burning sensation will be experienced and can be minimized with the use of an anesthetic cream.
When are the results noticeable?
Significant improvement of the skin’s tone and texture are noticeable after a few days following treatment. For deeper wrinkles, 6 to 12 weeks are required to see full results and after all the sessions prescribed by your skin therapist are completed.
The number of sessions required depend on the indication and extend of the problem. Typically, 3 to 6 sessions are required with 1-month interval in between treatments.
Can the Elos™ Matrix IR™ be combined with other treatments?
For even better results the Matrix IR™ could be combined with Mesotherapy, PRP, Microneedling, Accent RF, Ultraformer HIFU, etc.
