Many facial treatments are effective at restoring volume and softening facial lines. However, if you want a treatment that lifts and tightens facial muscles, EMFACE at our Louisville location is an exciting innovation for people from Lexington, KY; Floyds Knobs, IN; and surrounding areas. This treatment uses radiofrequency (RF) and electromagnetic stimulation to simultaneously improve the skin and lift facial contours for a more refreshed appearance—without needles or downtime.

How Does EMFACE Work?

This non-invasive device is the first to use synchronized RF to remodel the skin and high-intensity focused electromagnetic stimulation (HIFES™) to contract select facial muscles. During just one short session, these contractions increase muscle density and structure for a more lifted appearance.

Studies show that EMFACE treatment can lift your skin by up to 23% and increase muscle tone by 30%.

What To Expect During Your EMFACE Treatment

Your provider will begin by taping the EMFACE applicators to your face and cheeks. You will feel a warm, pulling sensation on your skin as the RF energy heats the skin and HIFES energy causes your facial muscles to contract. The treatment takes around 20 minutes, and you can return to your regular routine immediately after.

What Areas Does EMFACE Improve?

This treatment can improve the following areas by addressing facial lines and toning muscles.

  • Brow 
  • Cheeks 
  • Corners of the mouth 
  • Jawline 
  • Forehead 

You can also follow your EMFACE treatment with injectables such as BOTOX® or dermal fillers for comprehensive facial rejuvenation.

How Soon Will I See Results?

Although everyone will have different results, you should see significant results after your first 4 recommended sessions. It will take around 90 days to see the full effects of your treatment, and your skin may keep improving even after that. You can expect your results to last up to 1 year, after which you can seek maintenance treatments at 6-month intervals.


EMFACE is a safe and easy treatment, with most patients experiencing only minor side effects such as skin redness and dryness. EMFACE may not be safe for individuals with facial implants or mental plates. Talk to your provider to confirm you are a good candidate for this procedure.

Who Is a Good Candidate for EMFACE?

  • You want a non-invasive treatment to improve facial sagging 
  • You are in the age group of 30 to 55 
  • You prefer a facial rejuvenation treatment that doesn’t involve needles
