Non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments have become increasingly popular in recent years, with many seeking ways to combat the signs of facial aging while improving the appearance and health of their skin. In the realm of non-surgical facial rejuvenation, BTL Aesthetics has introduced their latest groundbreaking treatment: EMFACE. The first device on the market utilizing the innovative powers of HIFES and RF technologies, EMFACE is garnering attention for its ability to visibly reduce wrinkles and lift the face without the need for surgery�nor needles. But the question remains: Is EMFACE really worth it?In this article, we will delve into how exactly EMFACE works, how effective it is, how long results last, and whether its results are worth it. By the end, you'll have a clearer understanding of whether EMFACE is worth considering for your own facial rejuvenation needs.Before we get into it, let's first take a closer look at how EMFACE works.

How does EMFACE work? 

EMFACE utilizes HIFES, or high-intensity facial electromagnetic stimulation technology (try saying that five times fast), and synchronized RF, or radiofrequency energy, to stimulate involuntary muscle contractions while heating up the deep layers of the skin. Similar to the effects of intensive exercise, the contractions activate and strengthen deep layers of very specific facial muscles: the elevator muscles (think of them as the �lift-upwards� muscles of the face) whilst simultaneously triggering an increased production of collagen and elastin to remodel the skin. These areas are not usually targeted with other methods like Botox injections, which typically aim to relax the depressor muscles (the �pull-downwards� muscles) of the face, so you can easily see how these treatments could, in fact, work wonderfully in tandem.Ultimately, the result is a visible lifting in areas like the brow, cheek, and jawline; a firming of the skin and reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles; and an overall more youthful and refreshed appearance.The treatment is non-invasive, does not require needles, and typically takes around 20 minutes to complete, making it an attractive option for those seeking facial rejuvenation without the associated recovery time of surgical procedures. EMFACE is designed to be painless, comfortable, and requires no downtime, allowing patients to resume their daily activities immediately after the treatment.

How effective is EMFACE? 

So, does it work? EMFACE has shown impressive results in clinical studies and has been making waves in the industry with positive feedback from patients around the globe, including a list of celebrities from Rebel Wilson to Lisa Rinna to Jenna Dewan. The treatment targets the facial muscle layers, which can often become weak and begin to sag with age, and is a layer of tissue within the face that isn�t addressed by other popular treatments like Ultherapy or Thermage, yet is still affected by the signs of aging all the same. By stimulating these areas, EMFACE can enhance tone, definition, and firmness of the skin to effectively lift and tighten across the deeper layers of the face. Studies have shown an average 37% reduction in wrinkles, 30% increase in facial muscle tone, and 23% lifting effect.Patients begin to feel tangible results immediately after treatment, however, improvements will continue to be seen over several weeks and optimal results are typically reported about 90 days after the final session. It's important to note that EMFACE is intended to be performed as a 4- to 6-session protocol at minimum with treatments spaced about one week apart, and individual results may vary. At the end of the day, the effectiveness of EMFACE will depend on various factors, including the patient's skin condition, age, and their desired outcome. It is recommended to consult with a qualified professional at a reputable clinic to determine if EMFACE is the right treatment for your specific needs.

How long does an EMFACE treatment last? Is it permanent? 

Benefit of EMFACE

While the initial effects of EMFACE are noticeable after just one session, the longevity of the results will vary. Most patients require four to six sessions to achieve optimal results. The results can last for several months, but like many non-surgical treatments (and even surgical procedures for some patients), maintenance treatments are recommended to ensure that you continue to see the benefits. At the end of the day, it's impossible to completely prevent aging from happening, so it's normal and expected to see the face continue to age. Therefore, it's important to continue to take basic care of your skin beyond treatments like EMFACE� by being consistent with small but impactful actions such as using sunscreen, staying hydrated, and nourishing the body.While the results are not permanent, EMFACE is a great alternative to more invasive procedures like injectables or surgery. It's a safe and effective way to achieve a more youthful appearance without the risks and recovery time associated with other treatments.

In Summary

If you're considering facial rejuvenation, EMFACE may offer a worth-it solution if surgery or needles aren�t quite ideal for you. With clinical results, it's shown to be effective in achieving a more youthful appearance, ultimately with less wrinkles and more lift. By triggering intense muscle contractions and heating the skin, EMFACE addresses laxity and lack of firmness, offering visible improvements to facial contours while reducing the look of wrinkles and fine lines. But perhaps most appealing of all, the quick and easy treatment is the perfect solution for busy people who want to look their best in 20 minutes without sacrificing their time.
