What is EMFACE?

EMFACE is a groundbreaking, non-invasive facial treatment that tones and tightens the features. Using the proven technology that revolutionalized non-invasive body contouring, BTL Aesthetics designed EMFACE especially to treat the face. EMFACE tones the skin and underlying facial muscles, achieving sculpted, firmed lines in the facial area with the same technology that EMSCULPT and EMSCULPT NEO have used to successfully tone and tighten the body for years.

In some ways, EMFACE can be thought of as an alternative to facial injectables and other treatments. This non-injectable facial toning treatment can achieve many of the similar effects that injectable treatments and other facial rejuvenation treatments do, but without any invasive measures at all, and with highly dramatic results. EMFACE in NYC is a completely new way of toning and tightening your facial features.

Dr. Halaas Discusses EMFACE

Dr Halaas was the leading investigator for the launch of the revolutionary new EMFACE device.

How Does EMFACE Work?

EMFACE uses HIFES combined with RF (radiofrequency) skin heating, specially designed for use on the face. HIFES is an advanced and proven muscle-building technology that stimulates the muscles to contract, creating stronger, tighter, better-toned muscles in the underlying structure of the face and a more toned exterior facial appearance. When combined with RF, HIFES deeply stimulates collagen production in the face. The result is better toned, tight, firm skin and sculpted, refined facial features.

EMFACE in Westchester achieves for the face what EMSCULPT NEO achieves for the body–advanced sculpting, toning, and tightening.

EMFACE Treatments and Results

EMFACE treatments are short, lasting only about 20 minutes. Because there is no downtime, patients can get an EMFACE treatment during their lunch break and go right back to work or their usual activities once it’s complete.

We recommend about four EMFACE sessions for patients, although needs vary from person to person. Because EMFACE results are natural, allowing the body to restructure to skin and sculpt the lines of your face naturally, it will take 6-12 weeks before you achieve your ultimate results.

By this point, your body will have rebuilt the skin structure, and improved the quality of your facial muscles. You will be able to see the more radiant, youthful appearance of your skin, defined jawline, and overall rejuvenation.

The Science Behind EMFACE

Yael Halaas MD

EMFACE Study: Volume Changes Three Months Post-Treatment

EMFACE study results of volume changes three months after EMFACE facial treatments. 

  • 1.65 ml average volume improvement in upper cheeks
  • 1.08 ml average volume change of the lower face (jowls)
  • Interesting fact: The standard dose of filler used for cheeks is 1-3ml

Chisel Your Jawline: EMFACE® Submentum For Double Chin Reduction

Emface before and after 4th treatment

before and after 4th emface treatment

A double chin, or submental fullness, happens when extra fat gathers under the chin, causing it to droop or protrude. This can be due to genetics, aging, weight gain, or poor posture. Many people feel self-conscious about having a double chin and want to find ways to reduce or eliminate it for a more defined and youthful facial appearance.

The EMFACE® Submentum offers a non-invasive procedure to address this issue by targeting every layer from muscle to skin. Dr. Halaas highly recommends the Submentum for the following reasons:

  • It’s a quick 20-minute procedure
  • No need for needles
  • Absence of bruising
  • A focus on patient comfort

So, how does EMFACE® Submentum work? It uses a unique combination of Synchronized Radiofrequency and HIFES™ muscle stimulation, making it the first procedure of its kind. By stimulating submental tissues and applying radiofrequency heating, it achieves an overall aesthetic improvement in the submental area.

Dr. Halaas quoted about EMFACE in Practical Dermatology and Modern Aesthetics

Dr. Halaas was quoted on her thoughts about the breakthrough EMFACE device in articles published in Practical Dermatology and Modern Aesthetics:

"EMFACE Clinical Study: Novel Approach to Facial Rejuvenation by Treating Cutaneous and Soft Tissue for Wrinkles Reduction:
First Experience from Multicenter Clinical Trial." (2023)

"EMFACE presents a paradigm shift in facial treatments," observes Yael Halaas, MD. "EMFACE will do for the face what Emsculpt did for the body."

What is the difference between HIFEM/HIFEM+ and HIFES?

HIFEM utilizes a focused electromagnetic field that penetrates to the depth of 7-10 cm depending on the applicator and is important to stimulate a large volume of the target muscles. HIFEM is intended for major muscle groups such as gluteal muscles, abdominals, etc.

HIFES, however, is intended to stimulate delicate and superficial facial muscles. HIFES utilizes high-intensity electric fields to engage superficial facial muscles. These muscles require less depth of penetration and volumetric stimulation- such as the Frontalis muscle, Zygomaticus major, Zygomaticus minor, and Risorius.

Why do we not use HIFEM for the face?

HIFEM technology has shown to be effective for the areas that need deeper penetration and stimulation of large muscle volumes. Facial muscles are small and superficial and do not need deep penetration nor large volume stimulation. And so, HIFES is more suitable for the facial muscles.

Why do we not recommend EMS for the body?

EMS is not ideal for building muscle; it is superficial and follows the path of least resistance.

EMS on the body will not have the same effect as HIFEM since the penetration is not deep enough to cause significant changes in the muscles (hypertrophy/ hyperplasia).

What is Synchronized RF? How does it differ from the one used in EMSCULPT NEO?

Synchronized RF is the only patented radiofrequency technology that works simultaneously with muscle stimulation.

EMSCULPT NEO uses Bipolar Synchronized RF technology at 27.12 Mhz. The electrode consists of hundreds of bipolar electrode segments that penetrate deep in the tissue and accumulate heat in the deep FAT layer - important for Emsculpt NEO’s indication for use.

EMFACE uses monopolar Synchronized RF technology at 3.2 Mhz. This Hz rate has a more superficial heating effect(than NEOs Synchronized RF) and fits the needs in facial skin for collagen and elastin genesis. With our current protocol, Synchronized RF targets primarily epidermis and dermis.

Can I treat all skin types with EMFACE?

EMFACE is not restricted to any skin type.

Does EMFACE have an effect on sun exposure or melasma?

Over 700+ treatments were performed in our studies, and now over 3000 have been completed, with NO reported adverse events.

To this point, there have been no adverse events reported related to either sun exposure or melasma.

Does EMFACE reduce the fat on the face?

Current treatment protocol is not designed to cause FAT reduction/lipolysis.

The temperature in the fat layer does not exceed 40°C - 42°C, which is below the recognized temperature needed for the lipolysis of the fat cells.

What other areas can be treated with the EMFACE applicators? Why can’t I use EMFACE applicators on other body areas?

Applicators are designed explicitly for the facial areas.

Using the applicators on different body areas will not stimulate the muscles in that area properly, leading to an unknown (possibly undesirable) result.

If I’m “strengthening” the forehead muscle, why aren’t I creating more wrinkles?

With EMFACE, dermal thickness is improved, thereby making the skin harder to accordion (fold on itself). Second, the structure of the muscle and surrounding fascia is improved and provides more structural support for the skin. As a result, we are clinically seeing improvement of static forehead rhytids (wrinkles).

Emface helps restore more youthful function to facial muscles and promotes more youthful-looking skin, which doesn’t just look better, it functions more like it used to.
