A non-surgical alternative to facelift surgery and neck lifts

For many patients with early signs of skin aging, a surgical facelift or neck lift isn't exactly needed.

These patients are somewhere between what Botox and dermal fillers can do, and face or neck lift surgery. They need facial contouring but don’t require an extensive procedure to look great.

Moderate signs of aging can be tricky without the right treatment. You don’t want to go too far and have an invasive procedure that is not yet needed at this stage of the aging process, but you need something more than cosmetic injectables can provide.

Enter EmbraceRF by InMode

With the skin tightening of FaceTite, and the skin resurfacing ability of Morpheus8 microneedling, a non-surgical facial rejuvenation is now possible — all without ever having to set foot inside an operating room. With EmbraceRF, loose and saggy skin appears firmer and tauter, which has a beautiful lifting, smoothing, and age-defying effect. At the same time, it improves skin textural issues and irregularities that make a person look older and less attractive.

Dr. Whitfield was the very first plastic surgeon to offer Morpheus8 in Austin and the first to deliver EmbraceRF treatments. This exclusive experience makes Dr. Whitfield the top choice for EmbraceRF in Austin.

What is EmbraceRF used to treat?

An Austin EmbraceRF is unique because it combines microneedling to firm and resurface poor skin texture caused by aging, as well as tightens and firms skin with the same technology used in FDA-approved FaceTite procedure. EmbraceRF is designed specifically for the delicate skin on the face and neck area — two of the most obvious places people see early aging starting to happen first.

EmbraceRF treats the following cosmetic concerns without the need for invasive surgery:

  • Sagging jowls
  • Wrinkles
  • Hanging loose skin on face and neck
  • Double chin fat reduction (submental fat)
  • Jawline contouring

How does EmbraceRF work?

EmbraceRF is an exciting new technology from InMode Aesthetics that combines the powers of FaceTite and Morpheus8 technologies. Both powered by radiofrequency energy, FaceTite is used to tighten skin and tissue of the face for improved face contouring, while Morpheus8 looks to improve the skin's surface. EmbraceRF pairs these technologies to perform subdermal adipose remodeling (SARD) of the face for some of the best skin tightening our city has to offer.

Step 1: Microneedling Step 2: FaceTite

Step 1: Microneedling

An important part of EmbraceRF’s success is the use of Morpheus8, the latest advancement in skin microneedling. Microneedling is a procedure in which your skin specialist creates tiny, microscopic punctures in the skin surface. This controlled micro-injury encourages healthy skin circulation and provides collagen induction therapy to rebuild structural collagen in the skin. Collagen is the building block of strong, youthful skin. It helps the skin to fight wrinkles and creases and increases dermal thickness (a great solution for thinning skin that happens as you age).

Morpheus8 Microneedling has impressive results on its own. However, with EmbraceRF, it gets even better. The microneedle punctures that your doctor makes in the skin create thousands of tiny microchannels that help the skin-tightening energy of FaceTite to easily reach deeper layers of the skin, where it can provide the most benefit.

Step 2: FaceTite

FaceTite skin tightening helps to rejuvenate and remodel skin on a much deeper level than anti-aging face creams can provide. Topical skincare ingredients in non-prescription wrinkle creams do not penetrate the skin deep enough to make lasting changes in your skin.

FaceTite safely penetrates the skin surface with bipolar RF energy. This energy gently heats the skin without causing unnecessary damage, thus triggering skin tightening and remodeling to occur. As mentioned, EmbraceRF works even better than FaceTite alone because the RF energy reaches deep into the subdermal skin layer, thanks to the use of micro-needling channels in the skin.

Improve your face & neck in one treatment session

With EmbraceRF technology, Dr. Whitfield refines the fat layer and tightens skin on the face and neck for a more sculpted, rejuvenated face, neck, chin, and jawline in as little as one treatment.

Minimally-invasive radio-frequency-assisted lipolysis (RFAL) solution, EmbraceRF provides internal and external contouring and shaping of the fibrous tissues. In combination with Morpheus8, Dr. Whitfield is able to smooth the surface layer of the skin, delivering a remarkably youthful, natural-looking improvement.

Am I a good candidate for EmbraceRF?

This skin tightening and contouring treatment in one is ideal for patients that have early signs of skin aging. It is an excellent neck or facelift alternative for patients that are not ready to commit to the expense or downtime of facial plastic surgery. We use EmbraceRF in Austin as an outstanding new option for patients that are not willing to accept the downtime associated with a facelift or neck lift procedure, but who want to improve their overall facial aesthetics dramatically.

How is EmbraceRF different from other facial contouring treatments?

BOTOX and facial fillers can stave off the effects of time for a while, but, eventually, facial skin will become too loose for these modalities to help. At this point in time, patients are normally steered toward a neck lift or a facelift, or a combination of procedures aimed at removing redundant skin.

Additionally, the surface of the skin at this point in the aging process is typically weathered. Dr. Whitfield is able to get fantastic neck lift and facelift results, but if the skin's surface is damaged, that lifting and tightening will be for naught. Enter the other half of EmbraceRF, Morpheus8. Also utilizing radio frequency, Morpheus8 works to smooth and 'clean' the skin's surface layers.

Is EmbraceRF painful?

An EmbraceRF treatment is considered relatively painless. A topical numbing cream, as well as the administration of numbing injections to the treatment area, will ensure your complete comfort during your skin tightening procedure.

Recovery Results Treatments

How long is the EmbraceRF recovery period?

The beauty of EmbraceRF is - minimal downtime. The procedure is performed in the office under local anesthesia only. You can expect to have swelling and some bruising for approximately seven to 10 days. Most patients return to work or their normal activities within the first-week post-treatment.

How quickly will I see results from my EmbraceRF treatment?

The results are visible immediately and will continue to improve over time. Your skin will continue to improve over time and tighten for up to one year after your EmbraceRF treatment. Most of the results are visible in approximately three months’ time. Additional treatments and follow-up sessions can prolong the results of your Austin EmbraceRF treatment so that you can continue to stave off the skin aging process and preserve your looks for many years to come.

How many treatments will I need?

Just one EmbraceRF treatment is needed. EmbraceRF results are evaluated on a monthly basis. For the best results in non-invasive skin tightening Austin has to offer, a personalized maintenance plan by Dr. Robert Whitfield is created for each patient. While most patients see successful results from EmbraceRF in a single treatment, others may need more than one treatment to achieve the desired effect since everyone’s skin is completely different.
