What is EmFace?

A cutting-edge facial contouring option, EmFace delivers energy to the face that tightens muscles and increases natural collagen production. The EmFace technology utilizes both RF (radiofrequency) and HIFES (high intensity focused electrostimulation) in an easy-to-use, stable facial applicator system. The stationary equipment stays in place and targets specific areas with precision. These two powerful yet safe frequencies generate heat in the face, which is similar to a high-intensity facial workout.

What is Synchronized RF?

Synchronized RF works to restore and smooth the skin.

It does this effectively by heating the dermis layer, thus raising the quantity of collagen and elastin fibers for a rejuvenating effect.

What is HIFES?

Using HIFES, the EmFace system elevates and strengthens facial tissue support via targeted muscle contractions. This increases the quality of muscle structure, providing a tighter, more toned face.

Am I a candidate for EmFace?

If you’re looking to reduce wrinkles and see more tone and lift, then EmFace may be right for you. Since EmFace is a completely non-invasive, gentle procedure, it’s an excellent option for most patients looking for targeted wrinkle reduction. Dr. Pilest will, of course, answer any questions or address any concerns you might have in order to determine if EmFace is right for you. This method can treat facial concerns such as:

  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Collagen and elastin loss
  • Weak muscle tone
  • Hollow areas

Consultation and Preparation

Dr. Pilest will take a detailed medical and aesthetic treatment history during a consultation. He’ll get to know you, discuss your personal aesthetic goals, and explain how he recommends they are achieved.

He will also design a customized schedule of sessions for EmFace and any other beauty treatments that might be suggested. Before your appointment, you will receive detailed information on do’s and don’ts to prepare for treatment. One of the key factors is avoiding the sun for several days before treatment.

EmFace Procedure

At your appointment, your skin will be cleaned and prepped.

Your provider will then skilfully attach the EmFace applicators to your face in precisely defined areas. During the procedure, our Irvine EmFace patients may feel a sensation of heat, but it will not be painful. The EmFace equipment will stay on for about 20 minutes, and the entire appointment should only last about 30 minutes.

Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

This is a non-invasive, non-surgical, needle-free procedure, so no downtime or recovery window is needed. Our Irvine EmFace patients could return to work immediately after the appointment if required. Some patients with very sensitive skin might see a mild pink tone, but this usually resolves within an hour on its own. Some positive results can be seen immediately, but you will continue to see outstanding results develop over the next several weeks as collagen and elastin are rebuilt.

We know that feeling comfortable during your interactions with your doctor, nurses, or administrative staff can make all the difference.
