EmFace at Total Glow Medspa

At Total Glow MedSpa in Menlo Park, CA, we provide a holistic approach to aesthetics and wellness. Our goal is to provide the safest, least invasive treatments for our clients and their skin. EmFace is an incredibly effective yet gentle method for a toned, smoothed appearance.

What is EmFace?

At our med spa near Palo Alto EmFace is an advanced facial contouring solution that uses innovative technology to enhance the face by toning muscles and stimulating natural collagen production. This innovative system combines the use of RF (radiofrequency) and HIFES (high-intensity electromagnetic field) in a simple and precise facial applicator. The stationary equipment remains fixed in position, allowing for accurate targeting of specific areas. The synchronized RF function effectively rejuvenates and smooths the skin by heating the dermis layer.

This process promotes the production of collagen and elastin fibers, resulting in tight, toned, fat-reducing results. The HIFES technology component strengthens and lifts facial tissue through targeted muscle contractions. These two frequencies, which are both potent yet safe, generate heat within the face, much like a high-intensity facial workout. Consequently, the facial muscles improve in quality, leading to a firmer and more toned appearance.

What can EmFace do for me?

With the powerful technology found in EmFace, you can reverse the signs of aging or get that picture-perfect toned definition. Lift and tone your face with this noninvasive, non-surgical, no-needle technique. Our Menlo Park EmFace patients enjoy benefits like:

  • Tighter, more toned facial appearance

Am I a candidate for EmFace?

Those who are looking for improvement in the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging are usually great candidates for EmFace. This treatment is also a great option for clients who are not quite ready to fight significant aging, but are seeking a contoured, sleek, highly defined aesthetic. Those with metal in the face, such as piercings or implants, in or near the treatment area will need to fully remove the metal in order to receive treatment.

Consultation and Preparation

At Total Glow, we offer exclusive pre-treatments and post-facial treatments meant to enhance the lasting effects of the treatment. During a consultation, we will discuss EmFace along with these other possible added treatments to create a comprehensive and tailored treatment plan that will be optimal for you and your skin. We will also provide details on preparation and what to expect for maintenance.

The treatment lasts no longer than 20 minutes with the applicators applied, and the entire appointment is usually about 30 minutes. First, the aesthetic nurse performing your procedure will cleanse and prepare your face. Then, the applicators will be precisely applied to your face in the designated areas, and you will feel a heating sensation, but it should not be painful and is relaxing for many people.
