07 Aug Emface Tackles a Neglected Cause of Aging
What causes aging in the face? There’s certainly the issue of decreased collagen production, muscle memory creating lines and wrinkles, genetics, gravity, and UV damage, but what is often overlooked is the power of the facial muscles to lift. Emface is by the makers of Emsculpt, and if you’re familiar with that technology, it works in much the same way—but for the face. At RefinedMD, we’ve seen what Emsculpt technology can do for building muscle, and were excited when Emface became available. It’s a proven method for lifting and tightening the face with no needles, no downtime, and no dependency on collagen.
As we get older, many muscles get worn out (while some get stronger). When our muscles atrophy, they just can’t do the job they used to do. They’re tired. However, we can always strengthen muscles—it’s probably what you spend a lot of the time at the gym doing. We have muscles in our face just like in the rest of our body. Some of these muscles are in charge of lifting the face up while others drag the face down and may cause visible drooping. If we can target the muscles that lift, that can give us a more youthful, lifted appearance. However, muscle targeting is difficult no matter what. That’s where Emface comes into play.
Emface vs. Face Yoga
The concept of “face yoga” isn’t very new. You’ve probably seen some videos of facial yogis and social media influencers demonstrating certain “stretches” to do in order to strengthen facial muscles for lift. This can work, but just like any strengthening routine there are limitations. First, it’s very difficult to isolate muscles, and especially facial muscles. This means you’re probably inadvertently strengthening the muscles that draw your face down, too. Second, just like with any strength-based or yoga practice, it needs to be consistent to work. Neither of these are an issue with Emface.
Emface is a non-invasive treatment that targets only the facial muscles that draw the face upward. These muscles are then subjected to 20,000 contractions in just 30 minutes. Most clients require 3 – 6 sessions spaced one month apart for optimal results. Maintenance sessions are then recommended every few months. Since muscles are getting stronger in this process, results are not immediate. Most people start to see some results one month after their first treatment.
What Goes with Emface?
As you can see, Emface targets one (often overlooked) cause of an aging face. It does a fantastic, proven job of providing lift through muscle training. However, it is not going to address other issues like sun damage. You can mix and match Emface with a variety of other treatments such as Botox, fillers, laser skin rejuvenation, and Sofwave in order to get optimal results. Emface requires no downtime, so you can get right back to your daily activities after the treatment. We recommend taking weekly photos so that you can track your progress.
Plus, you can start Emface at any time. It’s not a treatment that makes skin hyper-sensitive to sunlight, which means it’s an excellent summertime choice. You can even schedule it back-to-back with other treatments, including Emsculpt NEO for bodily muscle building and fat melting.
The Science of Aging
Aging isn’t caused by any singular factor. It is a variety of circumstances that makes us look older than we are. Many people want to turn back the clock naturally, and nothing is more natural than depending on our own muscles to achieve a look that we love. Emface works, is quick, and fits into the busiest of schedules. It’s also based on effective methods for natural lifting, but without the time and precision required with at-home methods like face yoga.
Many people start to see early signs of aging in their thirties, but there is no age restriction when it comes to Emface. It is suitable for men and women of all ages and of any skin tone and type.
