New at H&B: EMFACE®
Humphrey & Beleznay Cosmetic Dermatology is proud to be one of the first Canadian practices to offer EMFACE®, a treatment combining radiofrequency with electromagnetic stimulation to lift the face and brow.
What is EMFACE®?
Facial aging is a complex, three dimensional process. Age-related changes in one anatomical layer—skin, fat, muscle, or bone—cause a cascade of changes to adjacent layers. EMFACE® is the first and only facial treatment to simultaneously address both the skin and muscle.
EMFACE® uses High-Intensity Facial Electrical Stimulation (HIFES) in combination with synchronized radiofrequency (RF) to reinforce the facial muscle structures and improve skin texture and laxity. The result is a lifted face and brow, and a notable improvement in wrinkles and fine lines.
How does EMFACE® work?
EMFACE® is a two-in-one procedure: HIFES works to contract and strengthen delicate facial muscles to increase facial muscle density and tone and cause a lifting effect. Simultaneously, RF energy works to increase collagen and elastin fibers, which improves skin texture, smoothness, and laxity. On average, patients have seen 37% less wrinkles, 23% more lift in the face, and 30% more muscle tone.
What can I expect from EMFACE® treatment and recovery?
During an EMFACE® treatment—which typically lasts no longer than 20 minutes—you will feel muscle contractions and a heating sensation in the areas where the applicators have been placed. The treatment should never feel painful.
A treatment consists of 4 sessions, with 2-14 days between each session. While every patient is unique and has different goals and needs, most will see full results at 12 weeks. The procedure doesn’t require any recovery time – you can get back to your daily routine immediately following treatment!
