11 Oct Improve Your Face with Emface: The Latest from BTL Technologies
You might be familiar with one of BTL’s most famous technologies: Emsculpt and Emsculpt NEO, both of which revolutionized body contouring and sculpting. Now, at RefinedMD, we have added Emface to our suite of services. Unlike Emsculpt, which builds muscles in the body by forcing them into supramaximal contractions, Emface lifts and tones the face and neck by treating the skin and muscle at the same time. It prevents and reverses facial signs of aging so you get less wrinkles, jowls, and midface descent.
When you combine synchronized radiofrequency (RF) technology with high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy, you can enjoy smoother skin that is remodeled from the inside out with the help of more collagen and elastin. Everyone loses muscle tone and density along with “good” facial fat and even bone density as we get older. These changes can happens as early as our thirties. Comprehensively, this leads to a general descent of the cheeks and brows along with a relaxing of the lower face. Support layers, such as ligaments, are weakened leading to an aging face—but with Emface, you can lessen these changes.
Facial Toning By the Numbers
Numerous clinical trials have found that results from Emface are long-lasting and patient satisfaction is sky-high. This includes nine different clinical trials at 15 centers with over 3,000 patients. Even better, unlike some other non-invasive procedures, patients report no discomfort during the procedure. With no adverse side effects observed during trials and thousands of happy patients, Emsculpt can be an effective tool to prevent or stop aging for virtually everyone. On average, studies found a 37 percent reduction in wrinkles and a 30 percent increase in muscle tone. As an added bonus, some patients even reported that their skin was more even after their treatment, which can be a natural side effect of collagen induction therapy.
Collagen and elastin are the framework for tight, youthful skin. We produce less as we age, but Emface kick-starts that production back into high gear. Studies show that most patients enjoy a 110 percent increase in elastin and a 26 percent increase in collagen with Emface. While the subdermal connective tissues get a major boost in support, the surface texture of the skin improves, too.
What to Expect with Emface
Although most people are in their 30s (or better) when they start researching options such as Emface, most adults of any age can benefit from this treatment. Younger patients can help stave off the early signs of aging while those who are older can do the same while even reversing signs of aging. If you’ve had a facelift, mini lift, or other complementary procedure, adding Emface to your regimen can boost and sustain results. For those thinking about getting facial plastic surgery, you can opt for Emface either before or after your procedure (talk to your provider to schedule the right strategy for you).
Four treatments in total are required, each spaced 5 – 10 days apart. Most people describe the sensation like a warm flush or buzzing. Skin is heated to 41 degrees Celsius, and you may experience a light “electrical” feeling around the forehead and cheeks. However, this treatment is not considered uncomfortable or painful. You will also be scheduled for follow-up appointments at 1 and 3 months after your initial treatment. We will photograph your before, progress, and after photos so you can track just how dramatic your Emface results are.
Is Emface for You?
Just like all BLT technologies, one of the major benefits of Emface is that it combines serious results with no downtime or discomfort. You can immediately get back to your day after your treatment and it’s easy to squeeze into your lunch hour. Skin might be slightly pink for a few hours after your treatment, but it is nothing that will interfere with your day. Bear in mind that results are not immediate (that’s what follow-up appointments are for). However, if you get started right now, you’ll be able to enjoy full results by spring break.
