Aging causes changes in the jaw line and neck that can directly impact facial appearance. Fat buildup and skin sag are the common concerns. Skin laxity can exist in the lower face with or without excess fat. Facelift surgery and liposuction are used to treat facial aesthetic concerns, but not all patients would benefit from these procedures. “Treatment gap patients” are those who do not have bad enough skin for a facelift and not good enough skin elasticity for liposuction. Today, EmbraceRF in NYC allows plastic surgeons to treat such patients effectively. This novel one-time procedure improves the contour of the lower face and neck area through adipose remodeling.
EmbraceRF is the latest innovation in facial aesthetics by InMode. Invented by plastic surgeons in NYC with extensive experience in performing radiofrequency-assisted cosmetic procedures, this minimally invasive procedure provides a long-lasting solution to the effects of facial aging. The procedure addresses the lower third of the face, specifically the neck and jowls.
The treatment firms the skin and removes stubborn areas of fat with little to no downtime and permanent results. Ideal candidates for Embrace RF are those who have skin laxity in the lower face and neck, with or without underlying fat concerns. EmbraceRF introduces the concept of “subdermal adipose sculpting” or strategic fat remodeling by combining two of InMode’s proprietary technologies: FDA-approved FaceTite and Morpheus8, a Subdermal Adipose Remodeling Device (SARD).
FaceTite radiofrequency assisted liposuction (RFAL) involves using heat used to address excess fat deposits in the face and neck. However, some of the fat in the lower face area may need to be preserved to retain a youthful appearance. The core of the EmbraceRF procedure is that it uses heat to remodel and mold the fat in addition to the skin tightening for optimal results. Applied externally, Morpheus8 molds the fat subdermally in order to effectively address aging concerns in the lower face. Unlike other treatments, EmbraceRF allows for precise sculpting of the face and neck by allowing the physician to balance the amount of fat removed, molded, and retained.
The key benefits of this treatment are:
- Minimally-invasive, can be performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia
- No incisions or scars
- Superior facial contouring with natural looking outcomes
- Treats both superficial and deep tissues
- Improves the jaw line and rejuvenates the neck
- Tightens the skin in the neck and jowls and retains the youthful fullness of the face
- Reduced treatment time and downtime
- One-time procedure with permanent results
Performed using local anesthesia in the office in approximately 45 minutes, the treatment has a downtime of about 48 hours or a long weekend. Results are visible immediately with one treatment and improves over a period of 6 weeks to 6 months.
