What is emface?

EMFACE is the latest facial treatment that targets both the facial skin and muscles at the same time. The two energies, synchronized RF and HIFES, are emitted simultaneously to treat the skin and muscles. As a result, facial wrinkles and lines are reduced, muscles are better-toned and the whole face is naturally lifted. All this is achieved without needles and in just 20 minutes.
EMFACE is the first treatment on the market that simultaneously uses these two energies to make structural improvements in the whole face. It is an absolutely safe, non-invasive and needle-free facelift.

HOW DOES EMFACE WORK?

As time passes, facial skin loses its youthfulness because of the structural changes in the skin and muscles. These changes can be a result of collagen and elastin loss. These proteins are vital for keeping the skin young and elastic but they start to diminish as the skin ages. Also, with time the muscle tone in the face slowly decreases and starts to sag. Next, to the loss of muscle definition, facial muscles are also constantly used for different expressions and they slowly start to leave deep wrinkles on the face. This is how the aging cycle works and continues as time passes. Aging leads to muscle atrophy, volume loss, hollows under the eyes and in the temples and loss of definition in facial contours and along the jawline.
However, EMFACE treatment can slow down the aging process with its latest facial-sculpting technology. It can take off years of someone’s face.

EMFACE is an absolutely safe treatment that can help anyone to achieve more lifted facial skin and fewer wrinkles. It is the first of its kind because it combines two energies simultaneously to address both the facial skin and muscles. Synchronized RF energy address the skin. It smooths and remodels it by focused heat and thus triggers the production of new collagen and elastin. These two important proteins start to build up and reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. At the same time, HIFES energy targets facial muscles and selectively contracts them. In the end, these muscles increase their density and quality and they provide better support for facial tissue. This way the facial skin is lifted and restored. EMFACE treatment goes into the deeper layers of the skin tissue and thus treats the skin from the inside out. All thanks to the powerful and effective combination of RF energy and muscle stimulation.

These two energies are simultaneously emitted through the electrodes that are inside 3 applicators. These applicators are placed in strategic places – one on the forehead and one on both cheeks. This specific placement is what makes this treatment unique – it lifts the full face because of the specific facial anatomy. This treatment contract the facial muscles but muscles are tied to the bones and skin with ligaments. So HIFES energy combined with synchronized RF energy targets both the structure and the skin of the face.

Bottom line is that EMFACE is a 2-in-1 procedure because it simultaneously reduces fine lines and wrinkles and tones facial muscles, all without needles or discomfort. The end result is youthful-looking skin and natural lift. It is like a non-surgical facelift because it targets both the skin and muscles in a single procedure.

WHAT CAN EMFACE TREATMENT ADDRESS?

This procedure focused on reducing wrinkles and lifting the skin on the full face. It can address all areas on the face like the forehead, cheeks, jawline and eyebrows. It can target facial muscles that lift the eyebrows or the frontalis muscles and the muscles that lift the corners of the mouth or the zygomatic major and minor muscles. EMFACE matches the contours of every patient’s face and activates and contracts these individual muscles so the results are uniquely effective for each and every patient. The patients can get a lateral brow lift, contour their cheeks, define their jawline and add definition to their entire faces. With this treatment, patients can improve their skin texture and tone and reduce fine lines and wrinkles – EMFACE is really versatile.

WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR THE EMFACE PROCEDURE?

A good candidate for EMFACE treatment is any patient who wishes to make the face structurally improved. This treatment can be used as a prevention or correction of aging signs, or it can be a restorative procedure. Therefore it is perfect for patients at different stages of their aging process. Younger patients can try EMFACE as an introductory treatment for their skincare routine. Older patients can use it to get natural and proactive solutions for slowing down the aging process.

EMFACE is also a great solution for patients who don’t like needles and who wish to achieve a  lifting effect or improve their face asymmetry without the use of injectable treatments.

WHAT DOES THE EMFACE TREATMENT INCLUDE?

During the consultation with Lucia’s skin therapist, the patient discusses his or her skin concerns and expectations from the treatment. The therapist examines the patient’s face and creates a customized treatment plan that addresses the skin concern of that patient.

The patient should arrive at a scheduled EMFACE treatment without any makeup, creams or other skincare products.

Before the treatment, the therapist cleans the patient’s face of any residual oil or dirt, because this way the treatment electrodes inside the applicators won’t adhere properly to the skin.

Regarding numbing cream, there is absolutely no need for it, because EMFACE is non-invasive and completely painless.

The therapist places the three electrodes on the strategic areas in the face to reach the muscles that lift the cheeks and the brows. So, one electrode is placed on the patient’s forehead and one on the patient’s cheeks. Finally, a grounding pad is placed under the patient’s back. Electrical pulses are delivered through the applicators to trigger targeted facial muscles and improve the structure of the face, while at the same time the RF energy targets collagen and elastin to firm and smooth the patient’s skin.

When the synchronized RF energy starts to emit, it causes a warming sensation and the HIFES energy causes involuntary contractions of the facial muscles.

The treatment is fast and finishes after 20 minutes.

WHAT ARE THE RESULTS OF THE EMFACE TREATMENT?

The results of this amazing treatment include a smoother and lifted appearance of the face. This procedure addresses the full face and lifts and tones the facial muscles that lift the eyebrows and muscles that lift the corners of the mouth. These muscles become thicker and better toned and the whole face appears lifted. The effects of RF energy are seen in a way of smoother skin with reduced wrinkles and fine lines.

Some patients can see the first improvements after just one session but the best results are seen after 4 sessions of the treatment protocol, precisely 6 to 12 weeks after the last session. The results are long-term, but patients can get additional touch-up treatments to keep the results even further.

The patient satisfaction rate is very high – over 90%. Most patients report a 30% increase in muscle tone, a 37% reduction in wrinkles and fine lines, 23% more lifted skin, and an over 90% increase in volume and skin evenness. These numbers certainly speak for themselves.

WHY IS THE EMFACE TREATMENT SO EFFECTIVE?

Its effectiveness lies in its advanced technology used for facial aesthetics. It is the first treatment that can simultaneously smooth and lift the skin and tone facial muscles. It is a true revolution in reversing facial aging.

The secret is strengthening the correct muscle groups and then the lifting effect is achieved throughout the full face. The treatment tightens the brows, lifts the cheeks and defines the jawline. It is a real star in anti-aging solutions.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THE EMFACE TREATMENT?

The benefits of this innovative facial treatment are numerous.

Its latest facial-contouring technology offers a non-invasive and painless alternative to facelift. It is the first contouring procedure that lifts and tones different muscle groups in the face. It reduces wrinkles and fine lines, lifts the skin and addresses facial muscles in a single session.

Since it is a non-invasive procedure, it is an ideal alternative for people who wish to avoid needles in their skincare treatments. It also requires no downtime and it is perfect for people with a busy schedule. One treatment session lasts for 20 minutes after which people can normally resume their daily activities because there are no side effects to worry about. It also requires no pre-procedure preparations or post-procedure skin care. It is absolutely safe and gentle.

The results are fast and effective. After just 4 sessions, people can notice that their skin is becoming better and better – it is smoother, more lifted and better defined. The results are long-lasting and can be maintained with occasional touch-up treatments.

The unique combination of synchronized RF energy and HIFES energy has never been used before for facial treatments. But it has been proven that this combination of energies tones facial muscles, stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, and achieves a lifting effect. It also improves the overall quality of the skin in terms of skin tone and texture. This powerful combination truly slows down the aging process of the facial skin.

One fact that makes this treatment very appealing to patients is that it addresses the full face. It can lift eyebrows, add volume to the cheeks, define facial contours and define the jawline.
EMFACE treatment is completely painless and comfortable. It does produce some sensations while the two energies are emitted to the skin, but it is only a mild feeling of warmth and gentle pulling of the face while the facial muscles are contracted.
EMFACE procedure can be also used in combination with BOTOX or other injectables to boost the results even further. The patients should only wait for two weeks after injectables to get EMFACE treatment. But, this is all discussed with the skin therapist during the consultation.
