EMFACE in San Francisco, CA | Dr. Leonard Gray

The face makes hundreds of expressions every single day. Unfortunately, as time goes by, the facial muscles lose their tone to the point where the skin starts to sag. In addition to losing essential muscle tone, the continued use of facial muscles for expression results in deep-set wrinkles in areas like the brow, between the eyes, and around the mouth and jaw. While there is no stopping the inevitable aging process, there is a way to reverse muscle deterioration and the signs of aging that come along with it. With the non-invasive facial rejuvenation treatment EMFACE, you can simultaneously treat facial skin and muscles, offering fast and effective results without having to consider recovery time associated with more invasive surgeries.

EMFACE is a revolutionary new treatment that uses both synchronized Radiofrequency (RF) and HIFES™ energies to tighten both facial muscles and skin in 20-minute sessions. Bay Area Plastic Surgery’s board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Leonard Gray is excited to offer this new treatment to patients interested in non-invasive aesthetic procedures to improve the youthful vitality of their appearance. With over 20 years of experience, Dr. Gray has changed many lives with his unmatched skills, compassionate care, and surgical expertise.

The state-of-the-art EMFACE device provides effortless muscle definition, skin tightening, and fat reduction for men and women struggling with facial fullness, sagging, and loss of collagen and elasticity. EMFACE is set to become the aesthetic industry’s leading non-surgical, non-invasive facial rejuvenation treatment to help smooth wrinkles and enhance patients’ natural facial contours.

BTL Aesthetics, the creators of EmSculpt NEO, has harnessed a solution using the same technology they use to tighten areas of the body—now for the face. EMFACE uses science-backed technology to deliver stunning results in quick, pain-free treatments.

How Does EMFACE Work?

EMFACE uses a combination of patented technologies, HIFES™ muscle building technology, and radiofrequency emissions to stimulate muscle development and damage fat cells with controlled heat for a noticeable facial lift, sharper contours, and improved muscle definition.

RF Energy for Collagen and Elastin Production

The radio frequency technology used in EMFACE is an FDA-approved heat therapy that helps to stimulate your skin’s natural production of collagen and elastin. These two essential proteins work together to give your skin a natural glow, smooth texture, and a tightened effect.

HIFES™ Technology for Muscle Building

The HIFES™ technology gently stimulates your facial muscles, stimulating targeted muscle contractions to help build muscular strength. Essentially, it’s an intense workout for your facial muscles without having to go to a gym five days a week.

What to Expect During an EMFACE Treatment?

With an EMFACE procedure, there is no special preparation or recovery time required. During your session, our registered clinic nurse will attach the EMFACE applicators to your targeted area, which can include the forehead, cheeks, and jawline.

When the EMFACE device is activated, you’ll experience strong muscular contractions and a mild heating sensation in the treatment area. This should never be painful, but rather patients have reported it feeling quite pleasant, similar to a facial massage. While the innovative device eliminates fat cells and stimulates muscle definition, you can relax, read, or take a quiet nap until your treatment is over.

EMFACE Recovery

Due to the non-invasive nature of EMFACE, meaning it involves zero needles, incisions, or sutures, EMFACE treatments require zero recovery time. As a result, your facial muscles may feel tender or sore for the first few days following your treatment, but this quickly resolves itself and shouldn’t require any pain management.

You are free to resume normal activities immediately after your appointment is over.
