As we age, our face gradually loses collagen and our facial muscles begin to sag. Collagen is a key structured protein that keeps our skin firm and youthful. Muscles give support to our fatty tissue and skin. Unfortunately, our face is one of the areas where signs of aging start to show early. Wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin can be a source of frustration for many individuals who want to maintain a youthful appearance. While surgical facelifts have been a go-to option for some, they come with their fair share of risks, downtime, and expense. EMFACE® is a game-changing cosmetic procedure that offers a non-invasive solution to these age-related concerns.

As one of the very few needle-free technologies for reducing aging signs, the procedure is popular among women and men with busy schedules. This blog will tell you everything you need to know about EMFACE® so that you are fully prepared. 

What Is EMFACE®?

EMFACE® is a cutting-edge non-surgical facelift alternative that uses advanced technology of electrical stimulation and radiofrequency to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and rejuvenate the skin. It’s a safe and effective option for individuals seeking a more youthful look without the need for surgery. 

This technology emits both radiofrequency (RF) energy and High-Intensity Facial Electrical Stimulation (HIFES) energy to remodel and smooth the skin, elevate and restore the facial tissues and the muscles of the face and forehead resulting in lifting of the face and eyebrows. 

Within a 20 minute session, there are 75,000 contractions of the facial muscles. Within four sessions, you can see a: 

  • 37% reduction in wrinkles
  • 30% increase in muscle tone
  • 23% more lift

As a bonus, the radiofrequency treatment will heat the skin, triggering the healing process of your body. This will cause the collagen to contract, stimulating the formation of new cells, and rejuvenating and tightening your skin.

Benefits of EMFACE®

EMFACE® is a great treatment for those who have mild signs of aging or are looking for a subtle facelift. Overall, here are the main benefits that this treatment may provide:

  • Reduces Wrinkles and Volume Loss

EMFACE® uses two technologies that have the potential to trigger collagen production: RF and HIFES™ energies. One will warm your skin up and trigger its healing system, and the other will give your face a work out. Regardless, both will start producing collagen over time, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and replenishing the areas affected by volume loss. This makes EMFACE® a great option for dynamic and static wrinkles, along with sunken cheeks or jowls.

  • Tightens and Smooths the Skin

EMFACE® features a toning effect that can tighten and smooth the skin. This is all thanks to the HIFES™ technology’s ability to stimulate elastin and collagen production. You will get the equivalent result of a facelift but without the associated incisions or lengthier recovery time.

  • Non-Surgical

EMFACE® is a great alternative for anyone who is interested in a facelift, but does not want to undergo surgery. EMFACE® is completely non-surgical, meaning no incisions or stitches, and no downtime. 

  • Natural-Looking Results

With EMFACE®, you may notice that your face looks slightly smoother and plumper from the first treatment. However, this is not where the results stop. With time, your skin will keep producing more collagen, ensuring long-lasting youthfulness.

Preparation for EMFACE®  

You should come to your session without makeup on your face as it may interfere with the adhesion of the EMFACE® pads. If you have makeup, residual oils, or skincare products on your face, then you will have to cleanse your face right before the treatment.

Metal piercings, implants, or plates may interfere with the effectiveness of the device as it may not allow for proper electrical stimulation. If you have these, please make sure to notify us during your consultation so that we can determine if you are a true candidate for this treatment.

Bring Your Youth Back With EMFACE®

The EMFACE® treatment is the perfect treatment option if you are looking to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as overall facial rejuvenation. With its ability to reduce wrinkles, improve skin texture, and stimulate collagen production, EMFACE® is changing the way we approach facial rejuvenation. If you’re considering EMFACE® as an option, consult with a qualified cosmetic dermatologist to explore the possibilities of achieving a more youthful and radiant complexion without going under the knife.
