Emface undoes the inevitable factors of aging in the face — say goodbye to wrinkles, jowls, loss of volume, and tissue descent in the midface. Minimizing wrinkles and adding lift are the key benefits of this revolutionary treatment. Emface is the newest cutting-edge device addressing these concerns. At RefinedMD, we are proud to be the first in the south bay San Jose and Los Gatos region to offer this youth-ifying procedure.
As we get older, our face loses muscle tone, muscle density, facial fat, and bone. Particularly as we enter the third decade of life, there is a significant decrease in the amount of elastin and collagen produced and preserved. Together, these factors contribute to significant loss of definition in the lower face, relaxation and descent of the brow and cheeks, and a weakening of the support layers like ligaments. Emface reverses these early signs of aging and is suitable for patients as young as their thirties.
Facial Toning Results
Emface results are enduring, patient satisfaction is high, and there is zero discomfort reported by most clients. Plus, during clinical trials, no adverse events were observed or reported during any of the clinical test sites.
In clinical studies, patients enjoyed:
Study results show that elastin and collagen, the building blocks and indicators of youthful and taut skin, are stimulated during Emface treatment. In fact, most patients show an increase of 110% elastin and 26% increase in collagen post-procedure. A dramatic increase in these two youth factors encourages positive textural changes while supporting subdermal connective tissues.
Emface is part of the BTL Aesthetics family. For over one decade, BTL Aesthetics has been revolutionizing the body sculpting marketplace. The work leading to the development and commercialization of Emface is excruciatingly meticulous and strictly science-based. BTL Aesthetic’s unprecedented Emface technology is at the forefront of non-invasive aesthetic medicine and body contouring.
Safety and efficacy have been demonstrated in 9 separate clinical studies conducted by BTL Aesthetics at 15 research centers and includes 3,000+ treatments. Backed by decades of science, hundreds of studies, and over 300 engineers, BTL Aesthetics has again brought its unique brand of applied science to the foreground to help you postpone, and even turn back, the natural signs of facial aging.
Emface employs the simultaneous delivery of 2 different energy modalities: HIFES contraction energy to create the lift via facial muscle toning and interlaced synchronized radio frequency (gentle heat energy to lessen wrinkles and remodel the tissues of the face).
This treatment is designed to give your face more youthful contours and improve the inherent support of the underlying structures, resulting in a more youthful appearance.
We’ve tried Emface ourselves. Our Board Certified Dermatologist Dr. Steven Swengel and Double Board Certified Facial Plastic surgeon Dr. Sudeep Roy have personally conducted research based on real science and the efficacy of this new procedure. At RefinedMD, we want to offer only science-backed treatments that we believe in—and that’s why we have added Emface to our contouring procedure suite.
"My cheekbones look 'snatched'."
”Emface is totally painless."
"EMFACE presents a paradigm shift in facial treatments…EMFACE will do for the face what Emsculpt did for the body."
"A clinically proven treatment with a first-of-its-kind technology that simultaneously treats facial muscles, skin and connective tissue."
"With Emface, numbing isn’t necessary….here is zero bruising or recovery with Emface.”
“I found it better for smoothing and lifting than plumping."
Treatment includes a series of four 20-minute long sessions spaced 5-10 days apart. Followup appointments are scheduled 1 and 3 months after initial treatment. Precise baseline photography is taken when you begin treatment and at the 3-month final results mark.
A gentle warming sensation is felt while the surface of the skin is heated to approximately 41 degrees Celsius. You may experience a mild electrical feeling and/or a buzzing sensation that moves from forehead to cheeks. All patients tolerate the treatment well.
Results documenting reduced wrinkles and lift were reported by investigators using 2D photography, MRI studies, 3D computer imaging technology, as well as 4 other standardized clinical measures. Emface particularly showed its clinical lineal lifting effect when measured on the cheeks and on the eyebrows. Apparent mid-cheek volume in study patients increased by approximately 1 1/2 syringes of filler per side treated.
Emface is non-invasive which means no needles and no downtime. It relies on muscle thickening which decreases the appearance of wrinkles and provides more volume, especially to the mid-face. Emface is a more natural alternative to a surgical facelift, a procedure that is more invasive, has a higher cost, and requires a longer recovery time. In addition, Emface is proven to boost both collagen and elastin by a significant quantity because of the radio frequency energy being deployed.
Most candidates are eligible for Emface. Emface is beneficial to patients who are concerned about mild laxity, wrinkles, skin plumpness, elastin and collagen loss or fullness in the jawline.
Yes, studies show that Emface can be used safely and in combination with fillers and toxins. We can discuss aspects such as timing of the two types of treatments in greater detail at the time of your consultation.
Emface is recommended by facial plastic surgeons as a way to maintain facelift results that may be diminishing with time. The benefits of additional elastin and collagen from an Emface treatment will improve current facelift results. Emface is recommended prior to a facelift surgery in older patients due to the treatment’s facial toning benefits.
Emface applicators fit on the lower cheek and across the forehead. The combination of motions during a treatment may affect some of the tissues in the upper neck providing some improvement in that area.
Pricing for Emface varies based on the individual patient. Pricing will be discussed during your Emface consultation.
We welcome you to schedule an in person Emface consultation with one of our Patient Care Coordinators and doctors to review your personal situation and treatment goals.
