BTL Emface

BTL Emface:

EMFACE is a non-injectable, energy device treatment. It uses synchronised radiofrequency (RF) and HIFES energies to treat skin and muscles to provide better skin quality and overall facial lift.  

The RF component heats the dermis to an optimal temperature of 42 deg to stimulate new collagen and elastin; and promotes better skin texture and quality. While the HIFES (High intensity facial electronic stimulation) targets only the elevator muscles in your face (Frontalis, zygomatic major and minor and risorius) to improve muscle tone and support.  

As we age, muscle fibres become more lax and begin to pull apart. Unlike anywhere else in the body, facial muscles are directly connected to our skin, therefore as our facial muscles begin to lose elasticity, our skin sags with it. With the RF and HIFES working together it can achieve an overall facial lift and restore facial tissue to its original location. This treatment works very well in conjunction with our other cosmetic treatments and studies have shown that is increases longevity of these treatments.  

4 treatments are required initially.  

The treatment itself takes 20 minutes. We attach a sticky pad on your back, cheeks, and forehead. The RF component feels warm and relaxing while the HIFES component stimulates a muscle contraction. There is little to no down time, the only side effect being slightly red after a treatment which subsides quickly.  

The RF component generates heat in the dermis by heating the water in your skin, therefore it is very important to hydrate before and after the treatment; at least 4 litres of water per day 2 days prior and 4 days post treatment.
