26 Sep Emface Dubbed “Magic Wand”
According to Long Island Weekly, Emface is the magic wand “we’ve all been waiting for”—and at RefinedMD, we couldn’t agree more. It’s made by the same brand as Emsculpt and Emsculpt NEO, BTL, the revolutionary technology that has helped thousands of people tone and sculpt their muscles (while also melting away fat in the case of Emsculpt NEO). It’s also based on the same science: muscles and how they grow. Your face has 20 flat muscles that sit on the face (and many more below the surface). Some are in charge of lifting the face; others are in charge of drawing it down. Just like with the muscles on other parts of your body, when you strengthen some muscles you get gorgeous aesthetic results. What BTL has done is create a machine that targets the lifting muscles, and only the lifting muscles, so you look younger and healthier.
Emface is completely disrupting the aesthetic industry because it’s fast, pain-free, and there’s no downtime. In some cases, it is allowing clients to delay aggressive options like facelifts or avoid them altogether. A lot goes into the process of aging, so what exactly makes us look older? It’s a combination of sun damage, genetics, loss of skin laxity, and lines and wrinkles. Sagging, creases, folds, lines, and wrinkles are often caused by muscles that just aren’t doing what they should be doing: lifting us up and making us look and feel great. Emface changes that.
Beauty from the Inside Out
Emface works by emitting a combination of synchronized radiofrequency (RF) energy and high-intensity facial electromagnetic stimulation (HIFES) energy. This affects both the underlying muscles and the skin at the same time so you get a double dose of turning back the clock. Emface isn’t just non-invasive with no needles, sutures, or downtime, but it’s also described as rather relaxing during the required 20-minute treatment. Most people need one treatment a week for four weeks for optimal results. Results are then maintained with ongoing treatments once or twice per year. It’s a little different than Emsculpt because you can get initial weekly treatments instead of monthly ones.
There are very few contraindications for Emface, and it can be effective for male and female adult clients of any age. However, given the nature of the treatment, it is most requested by those in their 40s, 50s, and 60s. It can also be used as a pre-juvenation treatment to “train” the lifting muscles to be more active for those in their 20s and 30s. This is similar to Botox for pre-juvenation in some ways. Younger clients are getting Botox to train muscles that cause lines and wrinkles to be weaker. You can also combine Emface with Botox for an even more beautiful outcome.
Who is Emface For?
Emface is for anyone who wants firmer and more youthful skin without the downtime associated with surgery. However, those who are pregnant, have epilepsy, or an implant from the neck up (such as a metal plate, etc.) are not good candidates for this treatment. If that’s you, it’s okay—we have plenty of other options to help turn back the clock, such as laser skin rejuvenation and chemical peels.
Emface is the very first device available that uses RF and HIFES to treat skin laxity on the face. The RF energy is indeed a collagen induction therapy, but it is also effective in remodeling and smoothing the skin itself by heating up the dermal layer. HIFES is all about elevating facial tissues, including key muscles, by forcing them into thousands of contractions during your short sessions. Emface only targets the muscles that lift the face, carefully avoiding the muscles that pull it down.
It should be pointed out that Emface is not going to be as dramatic as a facelift (nothing is). However, it does yield results and can help reduce the need for Botox and fillers in some clients. It also offers a beautiful glow post-treatment. You also need a little patience—collagen induction takes time. Full results are typically seen about three months after your last treatment, but you’ll see initial results one month after the first session.
