With time, facial skin becomes lax, and muscles lose density. Outside factors, such as sun damage and lifestyle changes, can expedite this process, resulting in sagging skin, hollowed cheeks, fine lines, and wrinkles. No matter your age, these changes can be frustrating and detrimental to self-confidence.
EMFACE® is a hands-free, non-invasive procedure that treats facial skin and muscles simultaneously, providing fast and effective results. In a 20-minute session, EMFACE® can improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles, increase muscle density, and help restore facial symmetry.
If you are looking for effective facial rejuvenation, EMFACE® provides stunning results with a pain-free treatment. Using radiofrequency technology and high-intensity facial electrical stimulation, EMFACE® tightens the skin, boosts elastin and collagen production, and lifts and tones facial muscles.
How Can EMFACE® Rejuvenate My Skin?
There are many options for facial enhancement, including surgical Diamond Facial Rejuvenation options like the facelift. These procedures can significantly improve the appearance of wrinkles and restructure the underlying muscles; however, many patients are reluctant to undergo surgery or simply do not require that type of treatment. Dr. Diamond and his team at the Diamond Face Institute believe that non-surgical procedures should be the first consideration for patients with mild to moderate concerns.
EMFACE® is entirely non-invasive––no incisions, no needles!
Instead, EMFACE® utilizes advanced technology to reach the underlying muscle layers and tighten the skin’s surface.
High-intensity focused electrical stimulation (HIFES) induces muscle contractions. This increases muscle density and tone, increasing volume and lift.
Synchronized radiofrequency (RF) heats the facial tissues, producing new collagen and elastin without overheating fat or damaging tissue. RF technology promotes key protein growth and heats the muscles so the HIFES technology can create more effective contractions.
By promoting collagen and elastin, EMFACE® treatments stimulate the skin’s natural repairing properties, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles over time. Additionally, through muscle contractions, EMFACE® increases facial muscle density and tone for a chiseled, volumized appearance to the brow, cheeks, jowls, and jawline.
What Are the Benefits of EMFACE®?
During treatment, hands-free applicators are placed on the forehead (the frontalis muscle) and the cheeks (zygomaticus major and minor, risorius muscles). These areas receive dual treatment via RF and HIFES technologies, targeting skin and muscles.Schedule your procedure
Soothing, Pain-Free Treatment
EMFACE® treatment is non-invasive, meaning the applicator merely rests on the face while technology does the work. In your 20-minute session, you will feel a tolerable warming sensation that many patients liken to a hot-stone massage.Schedule your procedure
In clinical trials, patients experienced benefits for the whole face:
- 37% reduction of facial wrinkles
- 30% increase in muscle tone
- 19% increase in muscle density
- 23% improvement in facial lift
- 26% increase in collagen
What Can I Expect During EMFACE® Treatments?
The applicators are placed on your forehead and cheeks while you rest. During your 20-minute session, you will feel the applicators alternate painlessly between warmer temperatures. It is typically recommended that patients have four sessions spaced one week apart.
Since EMFACE® is non-invasive, there is no downtime associated with it, and you can return to your normal activities immediately afterward. You may experience slight facial redness, which will subside within a few hours to a day.
Addressing Any Concerns You May Have
Are There Any Side Effects Associated With EMFACE®?
As a non-invasive procedure with no downtime, side effects are very rare. However, surface skin damage is possible, including burns or blisters. It is important to provide a complete medical history during your consultation to ensure you are a candidate for EMFACE® and to mitigate risks.
When Will I See My Results?
Patients can see moderate results following the completion of treatment, with a gradual improvement in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles continuing during the following weeks. Since it takes time for the body to produce collagen and elastin, you can expect full results anywhere from six to 12 weeks after your final session.
Are EMFACE Results Permanent?
No cosmetic procedure can stop the natural aging process, but EMFACE® can significantly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and increase facial volume and lift. The results of your EMFACE® treatment are considered long-lasting; however, yearly touch-up treatments are recommended to maintain facial lift, volume, and tone.
Frequently Asked Questions About EMFACE®
Am I a candidate for EMFACE® treatments?
EMFACE® is a great non-invasive solution for any healthy adult looking to improve skin laxity, minimize wrinkles, and increase facial volume.
However, EMFACE® may not be safe for patients with the following:
- Facial piercings or tattoos
- Cheek or forehead implants
- Metal plates in the face or neck
- Pacemakers or heart defibrillators
- Are pregnant or nursing
- A recent sunburn
- Any active condition in the area, such as sores, psoriasis, eczema, rash, or rosacea
If you are unsure if you are a candidate, discuss EMFACE® with your doctor before treatment and provide all relevant medical information to our specialist at the Diamond Face Institute.
Why should I choose EMFACE® over other non-invasive procedures?
EMFACE® is the only non-invasive procedure that targets the underlying muscle to tone and lift the face. While other minimally invasive treatments can help skin laxity and even tone, they do not increase muscle density.
Can I combine EMFACE® with any other procedures?
Yes. EMFACE® can be combined with other minimally invasive and non-invasive procedures, including Dr. Diamond’s Diamond InstaFacial®. If you want to optimize skin health, revitalize the skin’s surface, and further enhance collagen growth, the Diamond InstaFacial® can take your skincare to the next level.
Can I get EMFACE® treatments if I have injectables?
Yes. EMFACE® can be used with injectable fillers and other procedures like laser and light therapies. During your consultation with our specialist, you may wish to discuss your overall aesthetic goals so we can create a custom treatment plan to treat your specific concerns through various aesthetic procedures.
Is EMFACE® appropriate for people with minimal wrinkles?
Absolutely! EMFACE® can effectively treat younger patients, those with minimal fine lines and wrinkles, and those who wish to maintain their youthful appearance. EMFACE® is approved for patients of all skin tones and ages.
