With age comes wisdom. Unfortunately, there are also some less desirable attributes of aging, including slower metabolism, increased skin laxity, and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. These conditions can be especially apparent in the face and jawline in the form of excess submental fat, jowls, fine lines, and wrinkles.
Breathe Aesthetics and Wellness has a revolutionary treatment to turn back the clock and reverse signs of aging in the face. EmbraceRF in Austin, TX, permanently reduces submental fat, sculpts away jowls, and smooths fine lines and wrinkles to lift the face and reveal a more youthful jawline contour.
EmbraceRF combines both FaceTite technology and Morpheus8 to provide second to none skin tightening results that are above and beyond any one single modality treatment. You can expect results as close to facelift-like results as possible without having to go under the knife. The results are permanent with a dramatically shorter downtime compared to surgery. It is a perfect treatment for anyone starting in their early 30s and onward who desire a more contoured jawline.
EmbraceRF can be done in the office under local anesthesia. Sometimes patients like to have additional medication such as Valium as well to calm the nerves before their treatment.
We also offer Nitronox for any procedure done at Saxon MD. Nitronox is a mixture of oxygen and nitrous oxide – otherwise known as “laughing gas.” Anyone taking Valium will need to arrange for a ride home, but patients can drive home after Nitronox. After Dr. Saxon marks the areas on the neck and lower face to be treated, the area is numbed with a diluted local anesthetic. After that, 5 entry points are made with a small needle in order to insert the FaceTite device.
Each section of the neck and lower face is then treated to reach a preset temperature to tighten while minimizing risks of burns or damage to the skin. The machine continually monitors the temperatures throughout the procedure for optimal safety. Once the lower face is treated with Facetite, the entire face and neck is treated with Morpheus8 to further tighten the skin and improve fine lines and wrinkles on the skin’s surface.
After the treatment, a compressive dressing is placed around the chin to give support while you heal. This is kept on continually for 48-72 hours and can be removed during the day for an additional 1-2 weeks. It is best to keep the wrap on at night during this time to reduce swelling.
Radiofrequency microneedling can cause the skin to be dry and sensitive during healing, so moisturizers and sunscreen are recommended during that time. Although there is always a risk of bruising with any procedure, most patients do not experience this after EmbraceRF since the device closes off any blood vessels with radiofrequency energy preventing bruising.
In addition, most patients do not require any pain medication other than Tylenol. We do a lot of our EmbraceRF procedures in Thursday since most feel fine to go back to work the following Monday. Even though many are happy with their results after only 1 week, the skin will continue to tighten over the course of 6 months. Some changes can even be seen after 1 year. It’s the gift that keeps on giving!
Your EmbraceRF results are permanent and as close as you can get to the effects of a surgical facelift without the downtime. Though the aging process will inevitably continue, the fat removed from the submental area cannot return.
EmbraceRF is an ideal treatment option for non-smoking men and women in generally good health who would like to achieve a sculpted and lifted appearance in the face, jawline, and the area below the chin without surgical treatment. The best candidates for EmbraceRF have mild to moderate skin laxity and fullness along the jawline. However, patients with severe skin laxity and neck bands may be better candidates for a facelift.
EmbraceRF produces impressive results. However, minimally invasive treatments that further sculpt the jawline and boost collagen production within the body.
It can be used synergically with EmbraceRF to promote and maintain definition and skin elasticity. Such treatments may include our signature Slim and Sculpt or Jaw Refine packages. The specialists at Breathe Aesthetics and Wellness can assist you with developing your ideal custom treatment plan according to your specific goals, needs, and lifestyle.
The EmbraceRF device closely monitors skin temperature during treatment and communicates treatment conditions with the provider in real-time. EmbraceRF also includes an automatic shut-off feature that will power down the device if necessary.
Side effects associated with EmbraceRF are typically mild and resolve quickly. Such minor side effects include redness, swelling, tingling, and muscle weakness. However, our aesthetician provides all of our EmbraceRF patients with a gua sha facial to reduce swelling after their procedure.
