Learn More About Emface

You’ve heard of skin tightening, facial contouring and anti-aging procedures that target specific concerns to restore a more youthful appearance. Emface is a new kind of treatment developed by BTL Aesthetics that combines all three to lift and rejuvenate sagging facial contours and reduce the appearance of wrinkles with noninvasive technology.

Benefits of Emface

  • Reduces fine lines, wrinkles and sagging
  • Improves skin tone and texture
  • Provides a natural lift to your face
  • Restores volume for a more youthful appearance
  • In-and-out procedure with no downtime
  • 20 minutes to more youthful skin
  • Nonsurgical, noninvasive and needle-free treatments

How Does Emface Work?

Emface works by combining two proprietary technologies to lift and rejuvenate your skin without surgery, needles or downtime: high-intensity facial electromagnetic stimulation (HIFES) technology and synchronized radiofrequency energy (Sync RF).

High-Intensity Facial Electromagnetic Stimulation (HIFES)

HIFES is a patented, FDA-cleared technology developed by BTL Aesthetics, the same company that created Emsculpt and Emsculpt Neo. While these popular body contouring treatments use high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) energy to target and tone larger muscle groups like the glutes or abs, Emface uses HIFES energy to selectively stimulate the smaller, more superficial muscles in the face that slacken with age.

  • Emface produces 75,000 facial muscle contractions in each 20-minute treatment session, targeting muscles such as the frontalis muscle, which elevates the brows, and the cheek muscles, which support the midface and lift the corners of the mouth.
  • These muscle contractions rejuvenate your appearance by increasing muscle tone, volume and density, lifting and firming the facial tissues without surgery or needles.

Synchronized Radiofrequency Energy (Sync RF)

While HIFES technology stimulates muscle contractions in the cheeks and forehead to lift treated areas, BTL’s patented Sync RF energy penetrates the skin and warms the tissues to precisely 40-42 degrees Celsius. This promotes new collagen and elastin production in the deeper tissues, the two components responsible for keeping our skin firm and youthful.

  • Emface works without reducing facial fat, which contributes to a healthy, youthful look. The RF energy is precisely calibrated to stimulate collagen and elastin growth without adversely affecting the surrounding skin, fat and other tissues.
  • It also helps build elastin in the SMAS (superficial musculoaponeurotic system), a layer of fibrous tissue that tethers the face and neck muscles to the skin and enables facial expressions. During a facelift procedure, the SMAS is one of the key areas that plastic surgeons manipulate to correct the signs of aging in the mid and lower face.

Emface is the only noninvasive facial treatment that can target not just the skin but also the underlying muscles to lift and tighten sagging tissues. In only 20 minutes, it can treat the entire face, enhancing the deeper, underlying structures to build a strong foundation that helps you achieve a firmer, smoother and more youthful appearance that lasts.

“I am consistently impressed with the care and attention I receive at my appointments at Luminance! Dr. Dhar is wonderful along with all her staff. She is always very thorough in explaining in detail what she will be doing and what products she will be using on my face. I always feel relaxed and at ease.

I was encouraged to consider Emface. Dr. thought it would work beautifully on my skin. This treatment is in four sessions, one week apart. I am so impressed with the final result. My face and neck have never felt better. Thanks again, you’re all amazing & knowledgeable! I definitely will recommend you to my friends and family.”

What Can Emface Treat?

Emface is a quick, convenient and innovative treatment for addressing a variety of concerns that contribute to an aged appearance, such as skin laxity, wrinkles and volume loss. Some of the most common signs of aging that can be treated with Emface include:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Loose skin on the face and neck
  • Flat, hollow cheeks
  • Forehead lines
  • Sagging brow
  • Jowls and nasolabial folds
  • Aging facial contours

Your Emface treatment can be tailored to address specific concerns in the cheeks or forehead, or you can opt for a full facial treatment for more comprehensive results. Depending on your exact needs and goals, our team will develop a personalized treatment just for you.

Is Emface Right for Me?

Emface is ideal for most people with mild to moderate skin laxity, volume loss and other signs of aging who want to rejuvenate their appearance. It’s been proven safe for all skin tones and types and provides a great way to lift, tighten and tone the face without needles or downtime. However, there is one caveat — the device cannot be used on patients with electronic or metal plates, implants or screws in or near the treatment area. During your initial consultation, our team will discuss your medical history and goals to help determine if Emface is right for you.

Your Emface Results

Emface targets specific treatment areas to boost collagen and elastin and stimulate muscle contractions. These combined techniques help reduce the signs of aging by banishing up to 37% of wrinkles and improving muscle tone on the forehead, brows, cheeks and jawline.

However, Emface is not a “one-and-done” procedure, and it will take some time before you’ll see a noticeable lift in treated areas. Stimulating collagen and elastin growth to reduce the signs of aging is a marathon, not a sprint, but your results will get progressively better over time as your skin is rejuvenated from within. Most patients notice positive changes by their second or third treatment. You can expect your Emface results to peak about 90 days after completing the recommended series of four sessions and last for a year or more.

Some of the results you can expect to see include a significant lifting of the brow, less sagging in treated areas, firmer skin, increased muscle tone and fewer facial lines or wrinkles. Emface can provide long-lasting, facelift-like results without the cost or inconvenience of surgery.

What to Expect During Your Emface Treatment

When you choose to undergo an Emface procedure, you can expect a quick, comfortable and straightforward experience. Other than a simple facial cleansing before treatment, there is no preparation required, so you can show up “as-is” during your lunch break, after work or whenever is convenient for you. The Emface device works quickly and efficiently, with the entire procedure taking about 20 to 25 minutes to complete from start to finish.

During your session, one of our Emface specialists will lay you down and wipe your face with an alcohol pad so the applicators adhere to your skin. These applicators are fully designed to fit the contours of your face comfortably to maximize your results. Then, a grounding pad about the size of a postcard will be applied to your back, and your treatment will begin.

You’ll feel your facial muscles contract in response to the HIFES technology and a gentle warming sensation as the RF energy penetrates the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin growth. While these sensations can feel unusual at first, they are in no way painful or uncomfortable. Most patients compare the experience to a relaxing hot stone massage.

Once your procedure is complete, you’ll be able to resume your normal routine with zero downtime. This hands-free treatment doesn’t even leave a mark on your face, so you can stroll back into your home or office with no visible signs that give away your beauty secrets.

How does Emface differ from Botox or fillers?

Emface, Botox and dermal fillers are all nonsurgical treatments designed to reduce wrinkles and combat the signs of aging. Botox works by temporarily relaxing the facial muscles that cause wrinkles to appear, while fillers replenish lost volume beneath the skin. In contrast, Emface provides a natural, needle-free solution for restoring volume and smoothing away unwanted lines and wrinkles. Each treatment has its own set of benefits and can be used individually or in combination to help you achieve your desired results.

Is treatment painful?

During treatment, you’ll notice a pleasant heat as the RF energy penetrates the skin and begins stimulating new collagen and elastin production. You’ll also feel your facial muscles contracting in response to the HIFES technology, which can be intense and take some getting used to, especially your first time. However, Emface is generally considered a comfortable procedure — you should never experience a painful or burning sensation.

How long will my results last?

The longevity of your results will depend on factors such as your skin quality, age and lifestyle. However, most patients enjoy the benefits of treatment for several months, with some even reporting improvements lasting up to a year. For optimal results, a minimum of a series of four treatments is recommended, followed by quarterly touch-ups. Older patients with more significant signs of aging require a minimum of eight treatments with quarterly touch-ups. You can also prolong your results by adopting a healthy lifestyle and skin care routine.

What muscles does Emface target?

Emface targets the muscles in your face to rejuvenate your appearance. Specifically, it targets the frontalis muscle in the forehead, which extends to the top of the nose and elevates the brows. It also targets the zygomaticus major, zygomaticus minor and risorius muscles in the cheeks, which provide the midface with structural support and aid in facial expressions.

Can I combine Emface with other treatments?

Emface can be combined with other aesthetic treatments to enhance your overall results. It pairs well with procedures such as dermal fillers, Botox and IPL laser treatments to address a range of concerns like wrinkles, volume loss and uneven skin tone. At Luminance, we’ve also seen fantastic results by using Emface alongside Potenza RF microneedling, which is quickly becoming one of our patients’ favorite treatment combinations. Depending on your concerns, our team can develop a personalized treatment for achieving your aesthetic goals.

Is Emface Safe?

Yes! Emface is considered a safe and effective treatment for most patients. Since it involves no chemicals, needles or incisions, the risk of side effects and other complications is low. The most commonly reported side effects include redness, dry skin and headaches after treatment. During your initial consultation, our team will go over the risks and side effects in more detail to help you decide if Emface is right for you.
