The newest addition that we can’t get enough of? That’d be EMFACE, a non-invasive facelift with zero downtime. Like, who actually has the time to wait around to recover in this day and age anyway? Not us. To find out why EMFACE is a must-try anti-ageing facial treatment, you know what to do (keep scrolling, duh!).
EMFACE is the first and only 20-minute non-invasive facelift procedure that targets the facial skin and its muscles to tighten, lift, and tone to restore the natural contours of the face. Obviously, we had to add our own unique spin and create ‘The EMFACE Experience’. We’ve combined our signature cleansing, exfoliating and masking techniques with LED therapy and a gua sha sculpting massage to have you looking and feeling your best self.
Facial pads emitting two different types of energy, synchronised RF and HIFES™ technology, are attached to the cheeks and forehead. Synchronised RF remodels and resurfaces the skin by heating up the dermis, the middle layer of skin, to stimulate the growth of collagen and elastin fibres. Both of these fibres are essential to anti-ageing as collagen is one of the main building blocks for our skin that keeps it from sagging, while elastin allows the skin to bounce back to its original state.
The second source of energy from the natural face-tightening treatment, HIFES™, or High-Intensity Facial Electromagnetic Stimulation, increases density and strengthens the facial muscles by rapidly contracting them. Think of it like a workout for the face. This increased muscle tone will eventually smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.
Once you’ve arrived at your EMFACE session, we’ll cleanse your skin to ensure any impurities won’t affect its penetration. After this we’ll use our signature enzymes to exfoliate the skin. Then it’s the fun part the EMFACE applicators are applied to the treatment areas for 20 minutes. While they’re on your skin, you’ll feel a slight heating sensation, often compared to a hot stone massage, and muscle contractions. Once the EMFACE session is complete we’ll use LED therapy and signature masking techniques to boost the results. The best bit, you can immediately go back to living your ~best life~ straight away!
Clinical studies showed that EMFACE on average increased collagen by 26%, resting muscle tone by 30%, and doubled elastin levels, leading to less fine lines and wrinkles by 37% and 23% more lift.
Don’t believe us see the results for yourself below.
EMFACE is suitable for anyone looking to tighten and lift the face without going under the knife. By naturally restoring collagen and elastin fibres in the skin while toning the facial muscles, it works to bring back your once youthful complexion for a dramatic, yet soft look ruling out any possibility of looking windswept – a genuine concern for surgical facelifts.
The natural face tightening procedure can also be used to prevent the signs of ageing before they even show up, as it works beyond visible fine lines and wrinkles to maintain collagen and elastin levels and muscle strength to keep them at bay.
In general, 4 sessions of EMFACE spaced 1 week apart are recommended. But if you have more mature skin with deep fine lines and wrinkles and minimal volume, you’ll need more sessions to create more collagen and elastin fibres and greater muscle tone.
If you’re using EMFACE as a preventative procedure, how often you’ll need to attend a session will depend on the current state of your skin, age, and lifestyle, which can all be discussed with our aestheticians at your appointment.
Results from EMFACE vary on the individual. Some will begin to see results from the anti-ageing facial treatment as early as the first session, but typically, optimal results are reached 8-12 weeks after the 4th session.
Unlike a traditional facelift that comes with a lotta downtime, EMFACE is a completely non-invasive facelift, meaning there’s no recovery period.
EMFACE doesn’t require any pre-treatment prep. Although, it’s better to arrive fresh-faced, as we’ll need to remove any makeup to be able to cleanse the skin which can save time.
If you have any injectables, such as fillers and Botox, you’re most likely still able to undergo the anti-ageing facial treatment, as long as your skin is fully settled without tenderness or bruising, and it’s been over 2 weeks since your last injectable appointment. If your injector provider gives you the go-ahead, our expert aestheticians will create a personalised treatment plan to avoid complications.
