EmbraceRF in New York City


EmbraceRF is a technology that performs subdermal adipose remodeling of the face. It is the perfect answer for patients who are not yet ready for a facelift but want optimal outcomes. EmbraceRF is for those patients who have aging signs, with or without underlying fat concerns. It’s ideal for anyone who wants to look their best at any time.

FaceTite can coagulate the fat and remodel tissue utilizing InMode’s proprietary RFAL technology. FaceTite can be done under local anesthesia in the office, with only two days of downtime. FaceTite creates directional heat, which has been clinically proven in peer-reviewed studies for three-dimensional tissue remodeling.

Morpheus8 utilizes fractional RF technology for sub-dermal treatment. By coagulating the subdermal fat in a fractional manner, Morpheus8 addresses upper-fat layers to supplement the FaceTite procedure. Morpheus8 is a Subdermal Adipose Remodeling Device (SARD) that molds the fat in order to morph the aging facial features into a more youthful appearance.

What is the difference between EmbraceRF and a facelift?

A facelift is a surgical procedure that rejuvenates the lower region of the face by manually repositioning tissue. The lax tissue is secured with internal suture techniques, recreating youthful contours. EmbraceRF does not reposition tissue, it provokes natural remodeling addressing fatty tissue and loose skin at the same time. The treatment is a combination of two innovative technologies, FaceTite and Morpheus8. 

FaceTite is a minimally-invasive radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis treatment that sculpts the jawline by melting and removing fatty tissue. The FaceTite applicator, having internal and external arms, simultaneously delivers radiofrequency energy into the dermis to stimulate collagen tightening and remodeling. 

Morpheus8 radiofrequency microneedling completes the EmbraceRF procedure. This technique enhances the healing response that floods the skin with healthy new collagen. The result is firmer, smoother, younger-looking skin. 

EmbraceRF is an affordable and convenient way to achieve comprehensive facial rejuvenation benefits. The treatment addresses concerns including:

  • Jowls and sagging jawline
  • Sagging neck skin
  • Excess neck and jawline fat

How long does an EmbraceRF treatment take?

EmbraceRF treatment is performed in the office using a local anesthetic to numb the target area and prevent any discomfort. Patients may also be given a mild sedative to achieve the most pleasant experience. Tiny incisions are made in key areas to accommodate the small probes that deliver RF energy beneath the skin. Dr. Romo sets aside 60 to 90 minutes for the entire procedure. After EmbraceRF, patients can resume normal activities right away. 

How long will results from EmbraceRF last?

istock 636100006 The fat reduction accomplished during the EmbraceRF procedure is permanent. Fat cells do not grow back. After treatment, the skin-tightening improvements continue for several weeks, providing lasting results. That said, the skin does not stop aging. Collagen production does slow down again at some point, after which the signs of aging progress. While EmbraceRF reverses this downward trend for some time, it cannot stop further collagen shortages. 

Patients interested in prolonging the anti-aging effects of EmbraceRF can do so by taking excellent care of their skin and general health. Sun protection is paramount to collagen preservation, so quality SPF 15 or higher, broad-spectrum sunscreen should be worn daily. Hydration is also necessary for the skin to stay plump and smooth, as are vital antioxidants and healthy fats that can be found in fresh leafy greens, nuts, or supplements. 

How many EmbraceRF treatments will I need?

The EmbraceRF procedure is designed to achieve dramatic results in a single treatment. Patients can expect to see noticeable improvements in a week or two. These continue to improve for up to 12 months before collagen once again starts to decline. Only one EmbraceRF treatment is needed to reach optimal aesthetic benefits, and the procedure can be repeated every few years to maintain youthful-looking facial contours. 

What are the risks associated with EmbraceRF?

The EmbraceRF device is made with safeguards that measure skin temperature in real-time and offer audible feedback to the practitioner. It also has an automatic power cut-off to ensure patient safety. The side effects associated with the EmbraceRF treatment include tingling, swelling, redness, and mild muscle weakness. These are typically mild and temporary. As with all clinical procedures, it is important to have a trained, experienced physician perform EmbraceRF.
