Matrix IR™ Skin Treatment
How Matrix IR Works
The Matrix IR applicator uses a proprietary synergy of light and conducted Bi-Polar RF to create the deep thermal heating needed to both shrink and generate new collagen while protecting the epidermis.
The Matrix IR combines a diode (915 nm) laser matrix, bi-polar conducted radio frequency energy and intense epidermal cooling. Use of this combination of modalities results in overlapping light beams penetrating deep into the dermis to a depth of up to 2.5 mm to pre-heat the target tissue, and the RF energy being drawn to the target. This puts the thermal zone where it is effective for wrinkle treatment, while being gentle on the epidermis.

Matrix Diode Laser pre-heats target
The intersection of energies creates thermal bands deep in the dermis
During treatment with elōs fractional, the combination of laser energy and conducted RF energy induces skin injury that is maximized in micro-thermal zones (regions of greatest energy intensity) with an accelerated healing process supported by the tissue surrounding the micro-thermal zones. As a result, there is virtually no downtime with elōs fractional treatments.
Wrinkle Reduction FAQ’s
How does Wrinkle Treatment with elōs™ work?
The MATRIX IR combines safe and effective levels of laser and radiofrequency (electric current) energies to remodel the dermal layer of the skin by stimulating new collagen growth, creating a smoother and softer appearance. Both laser and radiofrequency have been used separately for decades in medicine and surgery, but the MATRIX IR exclusively combines light and radio-frequency energy for ideal treatment outcomes with a very low risk of side effects and virtually no down-time.
What results can one expect from elōs™ wrinkle treatment?
The MATRIX IR can improve textural irregularities in the skin due to loss of collagen in the dermis such as: non-dynamic moderate wrinkles, enlarged pores, superficial acne scarring, rough skin texture, and skin laxity of the face and neck. This is done non-ablatively, which means that this is a non-invasive procedure. Most people leave the treatment office with only slight pinkness or no pinkness at all, they can return to work immediately.
How many treatments are required?
Most patients will have between 3-5 treatments.
How frequently does one need treatments?
Treatment sessions are typically 3-4 weeks apart.
