EMFace Procedure in the San Jose Bay Area

Loss of skin elasticity and volume is a common sign of aging, which means everyone will have to deal with it at some point in their lives. In other words, skin aging is inevitable. Luckily, non-invasive procedures are now within reach. But not all of them are the same. The EMFace procedure, arguably, is the best non-invasive cosmetic procedure available these days designed to rejuvenate facial skin.

Lines on the forehead, wrinkles around the eyes, drooping eyebrows, and nasolabial folds (folds that start from each side of the nose and extend down to the corners of the mouth) begin to appear as people age. At what age they appear and the severity or depth of these signs of aging differ from one person to the next, usually based on race or ethnicity as well as lifestyle.

EMFace in the San Jose Bay Area at Rejuvé

Men and women looking for an effective solution to their aging facial skin usually begin their search for a treatment with whether to go the surgical route like the traditional facelift or the non-surgical, non-invasive alternate route, which, until recently, usually only involved dermal fillers and laser-assisted therapies.

Recent advancements in cosmetic technology have afforded patients, both men and women, the luxury of having healthier-looking and rejuvenated skin without undergoing surgery. While there have been other treatments that effectively rejuvenate the skin without surgery, there isn’t one that provides a more dramatic and noticeable result as the EMFace procedure, according to patients who have so far undergone this type of treatment and are enjoying their results.

What is EMFace Facial Treatment?

There are four important things every patient should know about the EMFace procedure. These are the following:

  • It’s non-invasive (no incisions, sutures, or surgery required)
  • It is a device developed specifically to treat aging facial skin
  • It utilizes two advanced technologies: radiofrequency (RF) energy, and high intensity facial electromagnetic stimulation (HIFES)
  • This treatment provides a natural-looking lift
    Additionally, it’s the combination of the above technologies that make the EMFace wrinkle treatment or general EMFace procedure more effective than other non-invasive wrinkle reduction treatments easily accessible these days.

First off, you should be discriminating when it comes to the clinic that will be performing the EMFace wrinkle treatment or general EMFace procedure on you. Whether it’s EMFace in Saratoga, EMFace in San Jose, or EMFace in the Bay Area in general, your choice of clinic and doctor will affect treatment results, so choose wisely and carefully. Make sure that the clinic specializes in non-invasive and non-surgical cosmetic treatments, and the doctor is experienced and considered an expert in the treatment you are looking to undergo.

The EMFace procedure is designed specifically to treat lines on the forehead, wrinkles on the face, as well as facial folds and creases. In other words, EMFace effectively improves wrinkles and skin laxity on the face, targeting the forehead, eyebrows, cheeks, and jawline.

How does EMFace facial treatment work?

Using the combined RF and HIFES technologies, the treatment simultaneously works on the muscles and tissues beneath the skin, as well as the dermal and subdermal layers of the skin. As the HIFES technology strengthens the targeted muscles and tissues underneath, RF energy that is deposited on the dermal and subdermal layers of the skin is transformed into heat to stimulate collagen and elastin production thus resulting in a natural-looking lift and rejuvenated skin at the same time.

The muscles and tissues that the EMFace facial treatment targets are of particular interest because these are the same muscles and tissues that were once only accessed through a surgical facelift. Collectively known as the Superficial Musculo Aponeurotic System or SMAS, this muscle plane or muscle group is separated from the skin and then repositioned to give the face a lift during a surgical facelift.

But thanks to the latest innovations in non-surgical cosmetic treatments, the SMAS can now be accessed and manipulated without surgery through the EMFace procedure. In a nutshell, the EMFace facial treatment works on skin, muscles, and tissues to give patients a non-surgical facelift that can take years off their face. The results are also natural-looking, so you won’t look like you had undergone any cosmetic procedure. It can also help to define the jawline while lifting the chin.

How is the EMFace procedure performed?

EMFace in the Bay Area, whether EMFace in Saratoga, EMFace in Los Gatos, or EMFace in San Jose (or elsewhere), is a no-hands procedure as it uses applicators to simultaneously rejuvenate the skin and strengthen the underlying muscles and tissues. There is a special applicator for the forehead and separate applicators for the cheeks.

Once the gel applicators are placed on the forehead and cheeks, the doctor will adjust the settings accordingly to achieve best results. Basically, heat and energy impulses (per second) settings are adjusted according to the targeted areas and the patient’s skin condition.

Four 20-minute sessions, spaced at two to 14 days (depending on the patient’s needs and treatment response), are recommended to achieve the best results. Optimal results are achieved about 90 days from your last 20-minute session.

Apart from its effectiveness, what makes the EMFace in Saratoga or EMFace in San Jose Bay Area (or elsewhere) treatment a favorite among patients is the fact that there is no downtime or recovery needed. Patients can go about their day right after their sessions as if they hadn’t just undergone any type of cosmetic treatment.
