The needle-free solution for facial rejuvenation
Emface® is a groundbreaking facial treatment that’s redefining non-invasive beauty solutions. From the creators of Emsculpt Neo, Emface offers a needle-free alternative to sculpt and tone your face with zero downtime and natural-looking results!
What is Emface?
Emface is a state-of-the-art, non-invasive procedure that combines the power of High-Intensity Facial Electrical Stimulation (HIFES) with radiofrequency (RF) technology. It is the only treatment currently on the market that targets the dual causes of aging: loss of facial muscle tone and reduced collagen production.
The science behind Emface
How HIFES technology works
- Electromagnetic currents contract forehead and cheek muscles. These currents penetrate the skin’s surface and reach the underlying facial muscles to induce involuntary muscle contractions, similar to those that occur during voluntary facial movements.
- Targeted facial muscles are strengthened through repeated contractions. This “workout” process helps in toning and strengthening the muscles to enhance facial firmness and definition.
- As the facial muscles become more toned and strengthened, patients see a natural lifting and sculpting effect. This is most noticeable in areas like the cheeks and forehead, where muscle tone is directly linked to facial contours.
- Muscle stimulation promotes better blood circulation in the treated areas. Improved blood flow helps oxygen and other vital nutrients reach skin cells to promote healthier, more vibrant skin.
How radiofrequency technology works
- Radiofrequency, a form of electromagnetic energy, penetrates deep into the dermal layers of the skin. This deep penetration stimulates the production of deeper collagen fibers, which are key to the skin’s firmness and elasticity.
- Once the RF waves reach the dermal layer, they generate heat. This heat induces a “thermal injury” within the deeper layers of the skin, without harming surrounding tissues or causing discomfort.
- The controlled thermal injury stimulates the body’s natural healing process, creating new collagen layers beneath the skin.
Together, these cutting-edge technologies restore and maintain youthful, plump skin. In clinical trials, patients experienced a 37% reduction in wrinkles, a 30% increase in facial muscle tone, and a 23% lifting effect on average.

Benefits of Emface
Emface facial treatments improve several skin concerns that age our appearance:
- Restores lost volume
- Provides a noticeable lifting effect to the skin
- Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
- Tightens and smoothes skin tone
- Elliminates double chin
Emface can also lift brows and make cheekbones more prominent, offering a natural yet effective alternative to injectables. Emface is also one of our favorite treatment options for “prejuvenation” for confident aging in younger patients.
Unlike some non-surgical treatments, which may not be safe for darker skin tones, Emface does not target melanin (the pigment in the skin), making it a safer option for people with dark skin tones.
Why our patients love it
- All-natural, chemical-free treatment
- Reduction of double chin
- Results within about 3 months
- No downtime
- Safe for all skin tones

Comparing Emface with traditional treatments
Emface vs. fillers
While dermal fillers like Restylane®, Juvéderm®, Versa®, and Belotero® add immediate, physical volume through hyaluronic acid injections, the radiofrequency energy from Emface prompts the skin to naturally produce its own collagen to smooth lines and wrinkles.
Emface vs. Botox
Neuromodulators such as Botox® and Daxxify™ target facial muscles that cause expression-based lines and wrinkles. By temporarily reducing specific muscle contractions, the surface of the skin smoothes out. In contrast, the Emface device strengthens facial muscles and uses RF heat to create a smoother complexion.
Emface offers the benefits of a non-surgical facelift with no needles required.
Ideal candidates for Emface
Emface is ideal for anyone looking for a non-invasive, long-lasting treatment to naturally enhance their facial appearance. However, patients with metal implants in the face should avoid this treatment due to the electromagnetic and RF energies used.
What to expect during an Emface procedure
We begin your treatment by cleansing the treatment areas to ensure the device makes good contact with your skin. You’ll have 3 adhesive electrodes placed on your skin, 1 on the forehead and 1 on each cheek close to the mouth, as well as a grounding pad that we place on your back. Each pad will warm up and vibrate, making your facial muscles contact. Your treatment time will last 20 minutes.
How many Emface treatments will I need?
For optimal results with Emface, you will need a series of 20-minute sessions, spaced a week or two apart. We will recommend a number for you in your first appointment, but you can decide to stop or continue treatments as needed.
Non-invasive treatments like Emface are gentle and therefore require multiple treatments to achieve significant results. Clinical studies showed optimal results 6-12 weeks after the final treatment.

How long does it take to see Emface results?
Most patients see visible improvements after the third session, with full results around 90 days post-treatment as new collagen growth can take 4-12 weeks to develop.
Is Emface painful?
No, Emface should not cause any pain. The muscle contractions or “twitching” sensation may feel odd at first but most patients get used to the experience quickly. You will feel a warming sensation, as well, but it will not get hot or feel like it’s burning your skin.
How often do I need maintenance sessions?
Emface maintenance sessions may be required once or twice a year, depending on your skincare goals and your body’s unique response to your Emface treatments.
