Emface is a facial rejuvenation procedure that simultaneously treats the facial muscles and skin, to lift and sculpt facial contours while reducing wrinkles. This technology is USA FDA cleared. Emface uses 2 technology : radiofrequency and high intensive facial electromagnetic stimulation (HIFES)
HIFES stimulate the more superficial facial muscle, targeting muscles like the frontalis (forehead muscles), the zygomaticus major and minor muscle (muscles that lift the face during smiling) and the risorius (cheek muscle). HIFES can produce 75,000 facial muscle contractions in each 20-minute treatment session. The rapid contractions trigger cellular changes that increase muscle volume, density, tone giving the facial tissues a lifted look and more structural support
Together with HIFES, Emface also uses synchronised radiofrequency energy to heat tissue to 40-42 degrees Celsius within a few minutes. This temperature induces new collagen and elastin tissues without affecting the facial fat. The new collagen and elastic tissue lead to a firmer and smoother skin with less wrinkles, Enface submentum targets the under-chin area to tighten the muscle, decrease the fat deposits and tighten the skin. It addresses the double chin and sagging effect of the lower face to improve the jawline.
A series of four Emface treatments can lead to a 30% improvement in muscle tone, a 23% lifting effect (particularly of the brows and cheeks), and a 37% reduction in wrinkles, with a 95% patient satisfaction rate. Collagen is increased by 26% and elastin levels rose 129%.

Emface procedure

  • The face is cleaned
  • The Emface applicators are applied on the treating muscle, across the forehead and the cheeks. Both RF and HIFES are delivered simultaneously or sequentially
  • It can be used for all skin types
  • The treatment is comfortable and there is no need for any anaesthesia. During treatment there is a warm sensation and a sensation of muscle contractions. This combination can feel tingly or strange, but it won’t be painful. You may find yourself involuntarily squinting or making odd facial expressions; this is completely normal.
  • Treatment time is 20 minutes. After the treatment the skin looks normal or a little flushed. This subsides spontaneously. You can return to your daily routine.
  • Treatment is repeated at weekly intervals for 4 sessions
  • Results continue to improve up to 3 months after the last treatment. Results can last for a year. Most patients will do 1-2 maintenance treatments per year

Patients’ selection for Emface

Most patients will benefit from Emface treatment Patients not suitable are those with severe skin and muscle laxity. Patients with implantable electronic devices like pacemakers, defibrillators or metal implants that can interfere with the RF or HIFES are contraindicated for this procedure.
