What is Embrace RF?

As we age, the skin along the jawline begins to droop and we develop laxity of the neck skin, jowl, and waddle area. In years past, the only treatment for this was a surgical facelift, but not everybody is ready for that or interested in surgery. EmbraceRF is a minimally invasive, non-surgical skin tightening procedure with no incision scars. It tightens the skin of the jawline and neck and removes excess fat under the chin and along the jawline. EmbraceRF can be done in the office under local anesthesia and is a safe effective treatment for facial aging, creating a tighter and more youthful jawline and neck.

The Procedure

EmbraceRF is radio-frequency technology and is the most advanced procedure for non-surgical tightening of the face and neck currently available. It uses directional heat for the deep layers of the skin to mold the fat and stimulate collagen and tightening. The procedure is usually performed in the office under local anesthesia. You will have topical numbing a placed for about 20 minutes prior to starting. The topical numbing medication will be removed, and local anesthesia will be placed in the treatment area by Dr. Timothy Janiga.

After you are thoroughly numb your EmbraceRF procedure will start. Two separate types of devices will be used during your EmbraceRF procedure. First, the FaceTite wand will be used to treat the entire area. Second a focused treatment with Morpheus will give you added collagen stimulation and improvement to the texture and tone of the skin. This dual approach is available only with the EmbraceRF technology. Dr. Tim will treat the lower part of the face, the jawline, jowls, the submental fat pad, and the neck to give you maximum tightening.

Dr. Jennifer is the best! There are lots of options in this area when it comes to Botox and fillers and some people are better than others at projecting the outcome. She is very straight forward, tells you exactly how much she will be doing, what the results will be and at what cost. I have referred her to many of my friends all to their delight. - Anonymous

Results & Recovery

Recovery is 2 to 5 days depending on your social obligations. If you are looking to have this performed before a big event, we recommend leaving 2-3 weeks for full recovery and results to take effect. After your procedure, you will notice immediate tightening of the skin which will continue to improve over the next months.
