Sagging, lines, and wrinkles are simply a fact of life. While everyone goes through it at some point, it can be hard to feel your best as your skin starts to show its age. To look as vibrant and beautiful as you are on the inside, Alazzo Med Spa is turning back the hands of time with Emface in Urbana. Here’s everything you need to know about this emcredible treatment!
The Roots of Facial Aging
Before diving into how Emface works, you should know exactly what’s going on with your skin regarding aging. Sun exposure, climate, and stress are just a few of the many causes of aging skin. Take a look in the mirror to identify some of these concerns that we can address with Emface in Urbana:
- Forehead lines
- Crow’s feet
- Permanent frowns
- Sagging skin/skin laxity
- Nasolabial folds
Repeated Facial Expressions
RBF is not a great way to make a first impression, and its effects can leave lasting impressions on your face as well. Repeated muscle movements, like raising your eyebrows, can increase the number and depth of lines and wrinkles. It can also train your facial muscles wrong, which can result in lasting negative effects over time.
The sun’s harmful UV rays actively damage healthy skin cells, leading to sun spots and damaged skin cells. This increases the likelihood of wrinkle formation in addition to many other adverse conditions. Skin professionals agree that the #1 cause of premature aging is excess sun exposure. Consider this your daily reminder to wear sunscreen year-round!
Less Collagen and Elastin Production
Collagen and elastin are the peanut butter and jelly of facial skin health. These cells are responsible for the structure and laxity of your skin, but every year, we lose more and more of them. One of the most common signs of the times is loose or sagging skin caused by a loss of these key components in your skin’s structure.
Emprove Signs of Aging!
Wearing sunscreen and using quality at-home products can maintain your skin. However, significant changes to lift, tighten, and sculpt require a professional touch. To provide the professional touch that every face needs, BTL created Emface. In just a few years, this technique has become an industry gold standard alongside other body sculpting treatments like Emsculpt.
Emface is the first and only facial treatment that addresses both facial muscles and skin simultaneously! So how does this treatment turn back the hands of time? With the same trusted technology behind all of the body sculpting magic from the minds at BTL!
The Science Surrounding Emface
Emface works on the face, rejuvenating even more delicate areas like the jawline, cheeks, and brow. This completely noninvasive treatment combines two highly effective energies to brighten and tighten aging skin.
Using HIFES technology and RF energy, Emface in Urbana jumpstarts collagen and elastin production, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and empowering muscle tone. HIFES stands for high-intensity facial electrical stimulation. The treatment pads emit this energy to your facial muscles, causing them to contract thousands of times throughout the treatment. This is essentially a high-intensity workout for your facial muscles!
While your face gets a workout, radiofrequencies distribute gentle heat energy deep into your dermis. This RF energy breaks up the cellular structure of your skin, which stimulates collagen and elastin production through your body’s natural healing processes.
Now that you know the science, let’s get into what you can expect from this emazing treatment at Alazzo Med Spa.
On the day of your treatment, you’ll be escorted to our comfortable treatment room, and our specialists will answer any additional questions prior to starting the procedure. As you relax, your specialist will place the Emface paddles on your cheeks and forehead.
Throughout your 20-minute session, we’ll check in and adjust the pulse intensity to ensure a completely comfortable treatment. The device will gently heat the treatment areas and stimulate muscles. Most people describe it as a pleasant, warm sensation. Before you know it, your session is complete, and you’re ready to get back to your day. Many patients love how quick and stress-free this treatment is. But at Alazzo Med Spa, we always go above and beyond for our patients.
Above and Beyond With Botox
We’re happy to combine Botox and Emface to take your beauty to the next level! Since Botox and Emface do very different things to your facial muscles, we plan your treatments accordingly. Botox relaxes your facial muscles to create a smoother overall appearance, while Emface stimulates and builds your muscles to add more definition.
While you can receive Botox before your Emface treatments, our specialists recommend waiting about 2 weeks after your injections to experience Emface in Urbana. We prefer to use Emface as a foundational treatment for facial rejuvenation. By improving your facial structure, we build a fantastic foundation for further results!
