Does EmFace Really Work?

Does EmFace Really Work?

BLT, the makers of the renowned EmSculpt and EmSculptNEO, are committed to helping you achieve your goals with no needles and no downtime—which is why they released EmFace, available at RefinedMD. There has been a burgeoning demand for non-invasive treatments in recent years and all the BLT technologies fit this demand. EmFace reduces facial laxity, one of the earliest and most common signs of aging, by strengthening the muscles that lift the face while stimulating collagen and elastin production.

When you strengthen the muscles that draw the face up, you’re naturally going to get a more youthful appearance. Muscles in the face work the same as muscles anywhere else in the body. Stronger muscles are more toned, but how often do we really work out the face? Unless you’re a die-hard facial yogi, the answer is never—at least not intentionally. The reason many of us have furrows between the brows, nasolabial folds and marionette lines is because we regularly “work” the muscles that cause these lines and wrinkles (such as squinting, frowning, and smiling). However, EmFace allows you to strengthen the muscles that reduce lines and wrinkles.

And when it comes to collagen and elastin, those are the building blocks of youth. We make less of them as we get older, but there are myriad ways to tell the body to produce more—such as EmFace. Collagen and elastin do not form overnight, just like muscles don’t get bigger overnight. This means that the results of EmFace take time but, with adherence to your customized treatment plan, you can expect to see full results about 4 – 6 months after your last session.

How EmFace Works

EmFace uses high-intensity facial electrical stimulation (HIFES) along with radiofrequency (RF) energy to give your face a double whammy of youthfulness. This hybrid combination therapy simultaneously lifts and tightens while contouring for a firmer appearance. EmFace doesn’t just improve tone and texture; it actually replaces the good volume that we lose in the face due to aging. If you remember the unfortunate facelifts of the 90s and earlier with their windswept look, there were a few factors at play. One is that those facelifts simply pulled the skin tighter and ignored the requirement to manipulate muscle and address loss of volume. Fillers are another option to replace volume, but they are not permanent. Collagen and elastin last for much longer and, more importantly for many patients, are totally natural and derived from your own body.

What makes EmFace so unique is that it targets both facial muscles and connective tissues. It forces targeted muscles into supramaximal contractions, the kind of contractions necessary to grow muscle. These are the same kind of contractions you achieve with any sort of strength training, but such facial training has never gone mainstream before. When you’re at the gym lifting weights, doing TRX, or any other movement designed to tone and bulk, that’s the same thing EmFace provides, but for the face.

So, why have we gone on so long ignoring facial muscles? There are a few reasons. One is that it’s difficult to isolate facial muscles (and you certainly don’t want to strengthen the muscles that draw your face down). The other is that we simply don’t think of the face as a place to “build mass,” but that’s a big mistake. There have been some efforts in years past to focus on the face, such as facial yoga, but it never took off because it’s time consuming and difficult.

Booking Your EmFace

EmFace is often called the “needle-less” filler because it can provide similar results as fillers but naturally and that last much longer. EmFace treatments take just 20 minutes and require no downtime. You can get right back to your day after treatment. After your initial series, which can range from 4 – 6 on average, maintenance sessions twice a year can help you sustain results. One trial found that in 24 patients, all showed “notable skin improvements” which included less wrinkles.

If you’re looking for a way to look younger naturally and want to avoid synthetic materials, needles, and downtime, EmFace might be for you. It’s suitable for men and women of all ages and with all skin tones. It also complements many other treatments very well including microneedling, lasers, Botox, fillers, and peels.
