Does EmFace help jowls?
Emface, Skin Tightening Treatment, Maidstone, Kent
When you think of treating the signs of skin ageing with non-surgical aesthetic treatments, a few things come to mind – botox, facial fillers, RF microneedling, chemical peels to name a few. Now, however, Emface has a new innovative approach to ageing. Emface is the first-ever and only non-invasive, needle-free device to simultaneously reduce the appearance of wrinkles and tone facial muscles to ultimately lift the face. So, how exactly does it work, and can it be used to effectively lift and tighten jowls? Read on for everything you need to know.
What happens to the face as we get older?
As we age, the muscle tone, density, facial fat, and bone structure in our face undergoes changes. These changes become more noticeable as we enter our thirties, primarily due to a reduction in the production and preservation of elastin and collagen. These factors collectively lead to a noticeable loss of definition in the lower face, sagging and descent of the brow and cheeks, and a weakening of supportive ligaments. However, Emface offers a solution to reverse these initial signs of ageing and can be beneficial for patients as young as their thirties.
How does Emface work?
Emface is an innovative non-invasive treatment that combines high-intensity facial electrical stimulation (HIFES) and radiofrequency technology to enhance facial muscle density and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. Currently, EmFace stands as the sole device capable of addressing and reversing two of the primary causes of ageing, namely the loss of facial muscle tone and diminished collagen levels.
But how does Emface precisely operate? In brief, HIFES utilises an electromagnetic current to contract the muscles in the forehead and cheeks, resulting in the elevation and lifting of facial tissue. Simultaneously, the radiofrequency (RF) technology employs heat energy to trigger a natural wound-healing response in the skin. This process effectively boosts the production of collagen and elastin, the crucial proteins responsible for maintaining a youthful, supple complexion.
What are the benefits of Emface?
Emface is designed to smooth wrinkles, tone the facial muscles, and lift the skin. BTL has nine clinical studies proving the treatment’s efficacy and safety. In these, Emface showed an average increase in collagen by 26%, twice the amount of elastin in the tissue, a 30% increase in resting muscle tone, a reduction in wrinkles by 37% and 23% more lift.
Can it effectively lift jowls?
As we grow older, a common concern known as “jowls” arises, characterised by sagging skin that develops beneath the chin and along the jawline. This sagging jawline is a significant issue in the aging face and can be attributed to the combination of reduced skin elasticity, thinning skin, and the effects of gravity on the underlying supportive structures. These factors collectively contribute to the formation of jowls and a loss of overall facial definition.
Emface uses radiofrequency technology to heat the skin’s outer layer, which increases facial elastin and collagen — factors that give skin a fresh appearance. Simultaneously, the Emface uses HIFES to selectively contract individual facial muscles— which helps elevate, restore, and increase the muscle density we enjoyed in our youth. By strengthening muscles, the resting tone of the lifting muscles is improved, and jowls are smoothed and lifted.
Emface targets all three of the most-desired areas of the face: it gives a lateral brow lift, contours the cheeks and redefines the jawline.
