Emface is our newest no-needle facial device to not only improve the skin of the face, as it succumbs to ageing, but which actually strengthen the facial muscles that become weaker during the ageing process.
As the ageing process takes its toll, we can experience a myriad of facial concerns, from lines and wrinkles of the skin, to muscle depletion and loss of facial tone. Each decade after we turn 30, we lose an average of 3-8% of our facial muscle mass.
At Dr Medispa in London and Essex, we are a centre of excellence for a range of BTL and Dr Medispa muscle building and skin toning devices for the face and the body. These include Emsculpt Neo, Emsella and our latest addition, Emface.
Some patients aren’t happy to undergo invasive facial surgery or non-surgical treatments such as injectable wrinkle smoothing or dermal fillers, so if you are one of these patients, or simply would like to have tighter, lifted facial muscles and fewer facial wrinkles, this non-injectable, non-surgical device could be just what you are seeking.
How does Emface work?
Emface works by simultaneously emitting both synchronized radiofrequency (RF) and HIFES-brand energies. The homogenous RF heats up the collagen and elastin fibres within the dermal tissues, whilst the HIFES™ stimulation emits thousands of pulses per session to help contract the delicate facial muscles to lift, strengthen and tone. Each treatment session lasts only 20 minutes, so it’s a perfect treatment to have in your lunch break.
There is no downtime, no cause for home-based recovery, no stitches or the need to wear compression masks or dressings, as you would if you were to undergo extensive facial surgery. A course of treatment is recommended and you will be able to discuss the estimated number of sessions required, in a no obligation, initial consultation.
What kind of results could I expect from a course of Emface treatments?
Emface does for the face what Emsculpt does for the body and this is exciting news for those who feel that they need to address multiple signs of ageing at various tissue depths.
BTL’s clinical research of Emface showed that this treatment can result in less wrinkles and more facial ‘lift’. The findings from 9 clinical studies concluded that patients who completed the recommended treatment course experienced on average, a 37% reduction in their facial wrinkles, a 30% increase in facial muscle tone and a 23% effect on lifting.
How do I know I am suitable for Emface?
As Emface is a non-invasive procedure with no downtime, it is suitable for most people who are experiencing facial ageing. However, we will ask that you attend a pre-treatment consultation before we agree to treat you with Emface, so we can check your medical history to ensure there are no contraindications which may prevent or restrict your Emface treatment from going ahead. Once we are satisfied that Emface would be both safe and suitable for you to undergo, you can book your course of treatment.
What are the perks of Emface?
Each treatment is quick to complete (around 20 to 30 minutes)
You can achieve optimum results in as little as 3 to 4 sessions
There are no pre or post-Emface treatment preparation or aftercare
Some patients report they see and feel a difference, immediately, post-treatment
Emface can offer a ‘lateral brow lift’ which results in a natural lifting of your eyelids without surgery, creating a more youthful and energized appearance.
Can Emface help tighten a weak jawline?
The muscle-toning technology of Emface means that your facial muscles will be tightened and more toned, resulting in a more defined jawline.
If I have had dermal fillers, can I still have Emface?
Emface is a great stand-alone treatment. However, it can also be used in conjunction with wrinkle-smoothing injections and dermal fillers. Speak with your Dr Medispa practitioner about how to time your Emface treatments with other, non-surgical procedures.
What does an Emface treatment feel like?
You may feel some mild warming or tingling sensations as well as involuntary contraction of the facial muscles, which may feel strange but is not painful. A topical anaesthetic is not required for this treatment.
How long will the results last?
This is dependent on how your face naturally ages. Obviously Emface will not reverse the ageing process, but it will strengthen your facial muscles and tighten and tone the skin, so that it is more resilient as time passes. We recommend a top up treatment, every 12 months, to maintain the results you achieve with Emface and to ensure that your facial muscles stay as toned and lifted as possible.
