If you’re bothered by loose skin and fullness along the jawline, under the chin, and on the neck, but are not ready for surgery, EmbraceRF may be just what you are looking for. This minimally invasive treatment uses precisely controlled and directed radiofrequency (RF) energy to tighten lax skin and melt away small pockets of fat for a sleek, youthful look. At Lone Star Plastic Surgery, EmbraceRF is an excellent choice for Frisco women and men who want an effective alternative to facelift and neck lift surgery.
Am I a candidate for EmbraceRF?
EmbraceRF is most effective for people with mild to moderate laxity of the lower face and neck who want to avoid the scarring and downtime involved with surgery. These treatments provide a variety of improvements, which include:
- Tightening lax, thinning skin
- Reducing a double chin
- Smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines
- Improving skin texture
- Fading acne scars
People with advanced aging may need a facelift and/or neck lift instead of EmbraceRF to attain their desired improvements. EmbraceRF can also renew the results of previous facial plastic surgery. During your consultation, Dr. Hill will talk with you about your concerns, perform a physical exam, and recommend a personalized treatment plan.
How are EmbraceRF treatments performed?
Dr. Hill performs these office treatments in about an hour using local anesthetic. EmbraceRF is actually a combination of 2 procedures, FaceTite and Morpheus8, performed one after the other as follows (see animation):
FaceTite is performed with a special handpiece that has an external electrode that is run along the top of the skin, while a long thin probe, inserted through a tiny hole in the skin, emits RF energy. The skin and fat are heated to carefully controlled temperatures—from the outside surface and underneath—causing the skin to tighten and fat to melt. The RF energy also stimulates collagen production for additional firming of the skin over the following 6 months.
Next, Morpheus8 fractional RF microneedling is performed while the areas are still numb. The handpiece is placed on the skin and quick pulses of RF energy are released into the skin and underlying fat as the needles reach a specific depth. The handpiece is moved to an adjacent spot until there is complete coverage of the skin. These treatments further tighten the inner structures of the skin and set off the skin’s natural healing process for continued improvement over the following weeks.
Most people need just a single EmbraceRF treatment to achieve long-lasting results similar to surgery—with no scars.
What is AccuTite?
At Lone Star Plastic Surgery, we are among the first in Texas to offer patients the AccuTite procedure for precise skin tightening and fat reduction. This handpiece looks much like the FaceTite handpiece, but is more compact. It is designed for rejuvenating the brow, under-eye area, and other areas of the face, as well as the upper arms, knees, and other delicate areas of the body.
What is recovery like?
While it is common to have temporary soreness, swelling, and redness, these side-effects are usually mild. Most patients feel comfortable going out in public within just 2 to 3 days.Back to Top
