What is EMFACE?

EMFACE is a highly innovative procedure used to refine and sculpt the face. This non-invasive treatment reduces the need for needles or downtime. EMFACE combines synchronized radiofrequency with HIFES™ (high-intensity facial electrical stimulation). The synchronized radiofrequency heats the skin’s dermis to boost collagen and elastin production while the HIFES™ technology contracts specific facial muscles. The results of the EMFACE treatment are a sculpted, tightened, and toned face.

Why Choose UnionDerm for EMFACE?

In preparation of an EMFACE treatment, the precise placement of the EMFACE applicators is critical to ensuring proper and effective treatment.  At UnionDerm, our board-certified dermatologists are highly trained in the anatomy of the face, thus ensuring a safe, effective treatment. Additionally, as a leading practice in clinical research and development, EMFACE has partnered with UnionDerm to conduct research on new uses for the EMFACE device, enabling our physicians to have first-hand experience with the EMFACE technology. We are also one of the first practices in NYC to offer the new EMFACE submentum treatment for the chin area.

Who is a Candidate for EMFACE?

Candidates for EMFACE include individuals wanting to address signs of aging, such as loss of facial muscle tone and loss of collagen. Candidates must be in good health and have no active skin infections during treatment. The best way to determine if you are a good candidate for EMFACE is through a private consultation with one of our board-certified dermatologists at UnionDerm.

What Can I Expect from EMFACE Treatments?

During your EMFACE treatment, you can expect the HIFES technology to contract your muscles with an electric current. This will help strengthen and sculpt your facial tissue while the radiofrequency heat prompts wound healing, increasing collagen and elastin production. Both proteins allow the skin to appear firm, strong, and tight.

Your EMFACE treatment will take around 25 minutes in total. First, your skin will be cleansed, and then the treatment applicators will be placed on your treatment areas, allowing the treatment to begin. To see the best results, it is recommended that you complete four sessions, each scheduled a week apart.

What Areas Can EMFACE Treat?

EMFACE is well known for addressing the appearance of facial wrinkles, sagging skin, and loss of facial volume. This non-invasive skin procedure can lift, volumize, and minimize the look of fine lines and wrinkles. EMFACE can treat multiple areas of the face, including:

    • Submentum/Chin
    • Cheeks
    • Forehead
