At Romo Plastic Surgery, New York, NY, patients looking to turn back time without plastic surgery procedures will want to talk to Dr. Thomas Romo III about alternative treatments such as EmbraceRF®. This revolutionary new treatment is brought to you by the same team that developed Thermage®, the gold standard in radiofrequency skin tightening and rejuvenation. With over a decade of experience and millions of treatments performed worldwide, you can trust that you’re in good hands with the technology used with EmbraceRF®.
What is EmbraceRF®?
EmbraceRF® is a new, minimally-invasive skin tightening and facial contouring treatment that uses radiofrequency (RF) energy to heat the skin which stimulates collagen production. The result is tighter, smoother skin with fewer wrinkles and improved contours.
Where can EmbraceRF® be used?
EmbraceRF® can be used on the face, neck, and body to treat a variety of concerns such as laxity, wrinkling, and sagging skin.
So how does it work? EmbraceRF® delivers radiofrequency energy through two small handheld devices, which are placed on the skin. This energy heats the skin and underlying tissue, causing the collagen fibers to contract and resulting in immediate skin tightening.
At the same time, the heat generated by EmbraceRF® stimulates new collagen production deep within the skin, providing long-term results. Collagen is a special protein that gives our skin its strength and elasticity. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen, leading to wrinkles, sagging skin, and a loss of volume. By stimulating new collagen production with EmbraceRF®, you can achieve lasting results without surgery or downtime.
What can I expect during an EmbraceRF® treatment?
Before your treatment, one of our experienced providers will numb the treatment area with a topical anesthetic. During the procedure, you might feel some warmth and pressure as the EmbraceRF® device is passed over your skin. The entire treatment takes about 45 minutes to an hour, depending on the size and number of areas being treated.
After your EmbraceRF® treatment, you can expect some redness and swelling in the treated area. This typically subsides within a few hours and can be easily hidden with makeup. You may also experience some mild bruising, which will resolve within a week or two. There is no downtime associated with EmbraceRF®, so that you can resume your normal activities immediately following treatment.
