Matrix™ Fractional in Baltimore
Dr. Papel and Dr. Kontis use Matrix™ Fractional to help rejuvenate the skin of patients in Baltimore, Washington, D.C., Annapolis and the surrounding areas of Maryland.
What is Matrix™?
Matrix™ is a method of resurfacing the skin using fractional or CO2 lasers. CO2 lasers gently vaporize the outer layers of skin to remove damage and provide a brighter complexion. They also increase blood flow to superficial layers and stimulate new collagen formation. The result is younger looking skin and diminished imperfections, such as scars and enlarged pores.
Benefits of Matrix™
Some of the benefits you can enjoy with a Matrix™ treatment include:
- Safe, in-office procedure that takes around 30 minutes
- Effective on a number of skin conditions
- Requires no downtime
- Many patients can achieve their desired results after only a single procedure, avoiding the need for multiple sessions
Who Is A Good Candidate for Matrix™?
Since Matrix™ Fractional sessions are shorter and fewer treatments are generally needed, this procedure is ideal for anyone with a busy lifestyle. Many of our patients also choose Matrix™ over other “lunch hour” procedures because it provides results quickly, making it ideal for anyone who wishes to improve their appearance for an important event, such as a high school reunion.
After carefully cleansing your skin, a topical anesthesia will then be applied to numb the area. Next, you will be provided with protective eyewear to use while our doctors gently apply CO2 lasers to your skin. You will feel a slight warming sensation, but should not experience any other discomfort whatsoever. Once the procedure is over, we will apply a light moisturizer to your skin; a bandage may also be used if our doctor has covered a very large treatment area.
When Will Results Be Noticed?
There may be some light redness for 24 to 48 hours afterwards. Once this diminishes, you will begin seeing results right away.
What is the Cost of Matrix™?
We are unable to provide you with a cost up front, as quite a few variables are involved. We recommend a consultation so that our doctors can come up with a treatment plan that will best suit your needs and discuss financing options. At this consultation, any questions you may have can be addressed, and you can also be provided with a more accurate cost.
At Facial Plastic Surgicenter, we urge you to remember that everyone is different, and your comfort with the surgeons is just as important as the final price.
