Introducing Embrace RF – You’re Going to Love it!

A groundbreaking device which is revolutionizing the aesthetic industry is here in New Orleans. EmbraceRF is a non-surgical treatment which addresses jowling, the jawline, and the neck area. Although there are multiple minimally invasive procedures which treat the effects of an aging face, few do so with predictable and long-lasting results. Many cosmetic devices marketed by spas to mimic the outcomes associated with a facelift, fall well short of optimal results.

There is a growing trend with plastic surgeons to offer non-surgical solutions for aesthetic improvement. One reason minimally-invasive procedures took so long to become popular within the industry is that until recently, they provided less than stellar results. At New Orleans Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery, we demand dependability and quality from the services we offer to gain the trust of our patients. We won’t provide a procedure which will not have a positive effect and help our patients look their best.

Embrace RF combines both Facetite technology, Morpheus 8, and in some cases liposuction to provide second to none skin tightening results that are above and beyond any single treatment.  Results approximate facelift-like benefits without having to go under the knife. Outcomes are permanent with less downtime when comparing to surgery. It is the perfect treatment for patients looking for a more defined facial contour, especially for those patients that may have maximized their potential with injectables but may not quite be ready for surgery.

Suitable Candidates

Embrace RF is a breakthrough technology which offers the effective results we look for in the treatments we offer. The procedure combines two techniques from the industry leader InMode – Morpheus 8 and FaceTite. Although results do not reach the level of facelift surgery, patients see up to a 60% improvement, and these results are permanent without the lengthy downtime associated with a surgical procedure.  These patients include:

Gap Patients

These are patients who need aesthetic help with the effects of facial aging but are not ready for surgery. They include those who tire of repeated non-surgical treatment regimens which fall short of their desired results. Their cosmetic concerns have not responded to other non-surgical treatments, or their problem is too severe for the treatment to provide satisfactory results.

Sideline Patients

These patients want or need a surgical facelift, but the cost is a concern, or they have health concerns which prevent surgery.

Maintenance Patients

These patients are looking to maintain the results they enjoy from facelift surgery by employing Embrace RF rather than have another surgery.

Male Patients

Men often seek to achieve the results of facelift surgery without the risk of visible scarring around the ears and hairline (if present) by employing Embrace RF rather than have surgery.

FaceTite

Facetite is an advanced technology developed by InMode which uses radio-frequency (RF) energy to remove excessive fullness of the lower face and neck and tighten loose skin without the risk of scarring. The technology works by heating and compressing fibers underneath the skin as well as the skin surface. The process employs sensitive sensors to monitor the temperature during treatment, so ideal endpoints are reached to acheive optimal results.

The procedure includes puncture sites made under the chin to allow the insertion of specific probes. These probes work to tighten the dermis at and beneath the surface.

Morpheus 8

The underlying layers of the dermis are the support and the building blocks to an attractive facial contour. Morphing these building blocks with a fractional skin treatment will provide a radiant and natural shape to enhance facial beauty. Morpheus 8 is advanced Microneedling which uses radiofrequency to accelerate collagen production to improve skin texture, reduce wrinkles and tighten skin.

By targeting the skin’s deeper layers, its building blocks will restructure themselves into a natural anti-aging mechanism. The technology can be useful in any area which can benefit from rejuvenating the sub-dermal structures. These areas include the neck and lower facial areas like the chin and jawline. Other issues which are treatable are acne scarring and skin discoloration.  PRP (platelet rich plasma) and PRF (platelet rich fibrin) are frequently used in our practice during this treatment to amplify the collagen response by way of the body’s own stem cells and growth factors.

The Embrace RF Procedure

Embrace RF is a minimally-invasive procedure performed under light sedation or local anesthesia. During the treatment session, a thin probe with a needle-like entry point is inserted under the skin at the treatment area to direct the RF heat and energy to the underlying skin tissue. The skin surface is treated concurrently with a specially-designed handpiece, which addresses the skin surface and underlying tissue at the same time. This treatment will destroy small areas of stubborn fat and cause the skin tissues to contract, delivering a firmer, slimmer, and youthful facial contour.  Liposuction is then performed if needed in areas where excess fatty tissue is present.

Benefits

EmbraceRF can provide patients with surgical-like outcomes without dealing with the risks and recovery of a traditional facelift. They will enjoy permanent results, and their downtime will be shorter than those of a surgical procedure.

The benefits of Embrace RF include

  • Tighten loose skin like jowls or a sagging neck
  • Reduce submental fullness (double chin)
  • Minimize wrinkles, facial folds, and deep lines
  • Smooth skin to an even and soft texture

Sometimes Embrace RF can be combined with liposuction to address stubborn fat.

Recovery

Because Embrace is performed under local anesthesia rather than general sedation, you will return home after your procedure. Downtime is minimal, but some tenderness, bruising, and swelling at the treatment site can be expected.

Visible results are immediate after one Embrace RF session. The most substantial effects become apparent after the six-week point, with continued improvement for up to one year. The benefits are permanent, much like a facelift. However no cosmetic treatment – surgical or non-surgical – can stop the effects of aging.

Non-Surgical Facial Contouring

When addressing the effects of aging, one concern for many patients is that a facelift is too risky for them, but the non-surgical procedures don’t do enough.

Embrace RF is the next generation of facial cosmetic devices by InMode. The treatment fills the gap between minimally invasive procedures and a facelift, providing patients with a significant and long-lasting correction for an aging face. The non-surgical radio-frequency technology helps improve facial contours by reducing stubborn fat areas and firming the skin with little downtime and results which last a lifetime.

Our skilled team at New Orleans Aesthetic and Plastic Surgery Center is proud to offer the fantastic benefits of Embrace RF to men and women in the Greater New Orleans area looking for surgery-like results without the risk of a surgical procedure.
