Embrace RF

In Austin & Dallas

Facial Skin Tightening Without Incisions

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.

Saxon MD has a revolutionary treatment to turn back the clock and reverse signs of aging in the face. Embrace RF in Dallas & Austin, permanently reduces submental fat, sculpts away jowls, and smooths fine lines and wrinkles to lift the face and reveal a more youthful jawline contour.

What is Embrace RF?

Embrace RF 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.

The Embrace RF Procedure

Dr. Sarah Saxon Austin & Dallas Facial Plastic Surgeon

What is the Embrace RF procedure like?

Embrace RF 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.

What is recovery like after Embrace RF?

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 Embrace RF 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 Embrace RF 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!

How long will my Embrace RF results last?

Your Dallas or Austin Embrace RF 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.

Am I a good candidate for Embrace RF?

Embrace RF 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 Embrace RF 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.

What are the risks and side effects of Embrace RF?

The Embrace RF device closely monitors skin temperature during treatment and communicates treatment conditions with the provider in real-time. Embrace RF also includes an automatic shut-off feature that will power down the device if necessary.

Side effects associated with Embrace RF are typically mild and resolve quickly. Such minor side effects include redness, swelling, tingling, and muscle weakness. However, our aesthetician provides all of our Austin & Dallas Embrace RF patients with a gua sha facial to reduce swelling after their procedure. As with any procedure, you can minimize risk with treatment from an experienced provider such as Dr. Sarah Saxon and the highly-trained team of professionals at Saxon MD in Austin and Dallas, TX.
