Have the hands of time left new fine lines or wrinkles on your face that you want to erase? Perhaps your jawline isn’t clearly defined anymore, and gravity has left its marks on your cheeks.
You’re ready for a skin rejuvenation treatment, but you’re looking for one without needles or surgery.
Our expert staff at A Beautiful You Medical Spa in Memphis, Tennessee, offers the latest aesthetic treatments to keep you looking as young as you feel. We’re proud to offer Emface®, which lifts and tones your facial skin to reduce wrinkles and provide clearer definition of your facial structure.
What is Emface?
Emface is a noninvasive skin rejuvenation treatment that:
- Increases your depleted levels of collagen and elastin to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, and facial grooves
- Strengthens facial muscles to lift, tone, and revitalize your facial structure
Emface accomplishes this two-pronged task using both radiofrequency (RF) energy and high-intensity focused electromagnetic stimulation (HIFES).
RF energy provides controlled heat energy that helps your body produce fresh, new collagen fibers. HIFES energy produces rapid muscle contractions that improve muscle strength and structure and help rejuvenate a youthful facial structure.
Emface is the first aesthetic system to combine these two energy technologies in one treatment.
During the appointment, you rest comfortably on a table while we place applicators on your trouble spots (forehead and cheeks). The treatment feels similar to a massage. You’ll feel warm sensations, but it’s not painful.
What facial problems does Emface treat?
Emface treats two types of problems at the same time: loss of skin proteins and loss of muscle.
Beginning in your late 20s, you start losing collagen and elastin, key proteins that keep your skin smooth and unlined. Your body doesn’t produce enough of these proteins as you grow older. By the time you’re 40, your collagen levels drop significantly. It’s a part of the aging process.
Without sufficient collagen and elastin, the millions of times you’ve used your facial muscles to smile or frown begin to show on your face. Grooves and wrinkles form in places where your muscles work repeatedly during the day as you change expressions.
Your muscles also become weaker as you age, and that includes muscles in your face that provide facial definition. As muscle support wanes, your brows may appear lower on your face, your cheeks aren’t as plump, and your jawline may lose firmness.
Emface treats the following aging issues:
- Horizontal railroad tracks on your forehead
- Sagging eyebrows
- Loose skin on your cheeks
- Nasolabial folds turning into grooves and extending from your nose to your mouth
- Wrinkles and fine lines on your upper lip
- Marionette lines at the corners of your mouth
- Poorly defined jawline as skin loosens and hangs
How long does Emface take?
Each treatment takes about 20 minutes, so you can be in and out of an appointment on your lunch hour. There’s no downtime. We recommend four sessions spaced one week apart.
You’ll see full results somewhere between the six- and 12-week mark, and your results may last up to one year. You can refresh your results with periodic maintenance appointments.
