EmbraceRF is a facial rejuvenation procedure designed to achieve many of the same results that a surgical facelift provides without the need for surgery. By combining the powerful properties of FaceTite and Morpheus8, EmbraceRF has created one multipurpose procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to tighten, contour, and smooth the face without surgery or extended downtime. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Jeffrey Caruth considers EmbraceRF a facelift alternative, but while it cannot duplicate the exact results, it does offer a fantastic alternative to patients who aren't quite ready for a surgical procedure. Plano Aesthetics recommends the procedure to patients seeking reduced skin laxity, facial, jawline, and neck recontouring, and fine line and wrinkle reduction. Read on to learn more about this exciting procedure before scheduling your consultation at our Plano, TX practice.
Ideal candidates for EmbraceRF are those who are in search of an effective nonsurgical solution for moderate signs of aging. EmbraceRF does not exactly duplicate the results that a surgical facelift can offer, but can be a great option for patients who are not ready for surgery. During your initial consultation, Dr. Caruth will review your concerns, discuss your goals, and identify whether EmbraceRF is right for you. To be an ideal candidate, you should also be in good overall health with reasonable expectations about the outcome of the procedure.
To perform your EmbraceRF treatment, Dr. Caruth will have you relax in one of our minor procedure rooms where he will administer local anesthesia to the target areas. The procedure involves the use of a very small cannula (FaceTite), which delivers radiofrequency energy to the treatment zones. Morpheus8 technology is used simultaneously to tighten the skin on and around the treatment area. Depending on the condition of your skin and your aesthetic goals, several incisions may be made as points of entry. EmbraceRF may be combined with other procedures such as fillers, BOTOX, or Instalift to achieve best results. A typical session takes about one hour, although your experience may vary depending on your treatment plan.
What to Expect
You should return home to rest after your procedure and should plan to recover and lay low for about two days. In comparison, facelift surgery can often require a week or more of discomfort and downtime before you are able to return to your daily activities. After EmbraceRF, your treatment area may be sore and bruised. Swelling and tenderness are also normal side effects that will fade over a period of time.
Frequently Asked Questions
For patients who are in the treatment gap (not quite ready for surgery but no longer seeing effective results from other skin tightening procedures), EmbraceRF is an innovative solution to address the lower-third portion of the face, specifically the neck and jawline. EmbraceRF combines the proven and effective technologies of Morpheus8 and FaceTite to deliver exemplary aesthetic results comparable to those of a facelift.
What does EmbraceRF cost?
The price of your EmbraceRF treatment will depend on the individual details of your treatment plan and your desired aesthetic result. Dr. Caruth will be better able to help you understand your out-of-pocket costs after a private consultation where he can determine the full extent of your needs.
What areas can be treated?
Lower face and neck with saggy skin can be treated. This includes double chin, jowls, and other areas with deep lines and loose skin.
What are the benefits of the procedure?
EmbraceRF is a one-time procedure that offers permanent results for superficial and deep tissues. The treatment dramatically improves the jawline and neck, offering superior facial contouring with natural-looking results. Finally, EmbraceRF can be performed onsite at Plano Aesthetics under local anesthesia.
What does recovery involve and how long will it take?
Patients should lay low, rest, and recover for two days following treatment. During this time you may experience discomfort, redness, bruising, and swelling. These side effects will subside quickly and naturally in the coming days and weeks following your procedure. The results are visible immediately and improve with time over a period of six months.
