At Beauty World we often combine multiple treatment methods, and use a wide variety of serums & spa botanicals, in conjunction with high tech skin rejuvenation devices in order to produce optimal results for our clients. We are excited to introduce our clients to one of the newest and most highly effective skin rejuvenation devices around, the eTwo Syneron by Candela. The eTwo treatment combines Sublative Rejuvenation and Sublime Skin Contouring (formerly known as ReFirme) treatments. Treatment with eTwo revives your skin to appear more youthful. The eTwo uses radio-frequency energy (electrical as opposed to laser, which is light energy) to deliver an effective fractional and tightening treatment to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, pores and acne scarring. Sublime Skin Contouring (formerly known as ReFirme) is a treatment that combines infrared light with radiofrequency to firm skin as well as tighten lax skin.
With the eTwo treatment system, we recommend clients undergo 3 sublime and 3 sublative (Ematrix) treatments – performed once a month for 3 months. The two treatments are performed on the same day. Clients are likely to experience optimal results one to three months after the final treatment. One of the best parts about the treatment is that the combo eTwo treatment works just as well on skin of any color and has little downtime, and minimal side effects. For the most part, clients can continue with their normal daily activities immediately following each session – with a few minor pieces of advice which our team will go over with you before and after your first session. The treatment itself is also relatively pain & discomfort free.
This combination treatment is designed to help clients to drastically improve their skin overall, with far smoother, softer skin texture – free of unwanted bumps & blemishes. In addition, clients can expect vastly improved surface regularity as well as much needed, firming and tightening.
Is the eTwo Right for Me?
eTwo is a treatment for those who would like to improve wrinkling and sagging of the skin, reducing pore size appearance, and diminish acne scarring and much more. If you are experiencing any of these issues, or would simply like to improve the overall tightness and texture of your skin, then the eTwo is right for you.
How Does the eTwo Work?
The eTwo combines the Sublative Rejuvenation (eMatrix Skin Resurfacing) and Sublime Skin Contouring (formerly known as ReFirme) treatments to reverse aging. eTwo includes three treatments of both eMatrix and Sublime. The Sublime treatment uses the combination of light energy and radiofrequency energy to deeply heat layers of the skin while protecting the surface of the skin simultaneously. Medium to deep heating of the skin activates fibroblasts (deep skin cells) signaling new collagen to form and existing collagen to tighten, which will occur over a 4-6 month period.
The eMatrix treatment uses radio frequency to deliver an effective but controlled fractional treatment. Each pulse delivers the energy via a grid of matrix spots on the surface as well as just under the surface. Fibroblasts (skin cells that produce collagen) are activated within the treated zones signal collagen to regenerate and remodel, yielding improved skin tone and texture. The surrounding tissue of the untreated areas support and accelerate the healing process of the skin.
What Benefits Can I Expect?
The benefits include smoother and brighter skin, with smaller appearing pores, less scarring and finer and less deep wrinkles. In addition, lax skin will be tighter as well as firmer. Typically results become noticeable over a period of three to six months but some patients have seen results immediately after treatment.
What are the Risks and Side Effects?
The procedure is relatively pain free; however, some patients might experience some mild discomfort at some points. The sublime treatment is usually not an issue, whereas the sublative treatment can lead to minor discomfort, and some patients might require the use of a topical anesthetic, which makes it quite tolerable. Expected side effects are redness and swelling after the procedure that lasts from hours to days, and occasionally even up to a week or beyond (very unusual). Small scabs covering about 5% of the treated areas appear, but they are usually easy to cover with makeup, and although present for 5-14 days, are usually not very noticeable after the first day or two. Rare side effects include skin wound, infection and scarring, too little or too much pigment, and surface irregularities. Prior to treatment all potential risks and side effects will be discussed by the Beauty World team.
How Will I look After the Treatment?
Most patients will experience mild redness and swelling with eMatrix for a few hours following each session. In some cases, these issues may continue as long as 3 days after the treatment. You may apply make-up to the treated area immediately after the Sublative rejuvenation procedure. Tiny crusts develop and are present for about 5-14 days, but these are easy to hide with makeup or even without it after the first one to two days. Results will develop over time and with subsequent treatments. Full results can be appreciated at three to six months following the last treatment. Maintenance treatments may be necessary.
Can it be Combined with Other Treatments?
The eTwo is already a combination of treatments with the goal of reversing the effects of aging. However, fillers and botulinum toxin may be combined. In addition, the IPL and the Matrix IR (for sun damage like freckles and deep wrinkles, respectively, could be added to create the Quad treatment.
