EmbraceRF: The New Groundbreaking Skin Tightening Solution under Local Anesthesia
June 23, 2018
Embrace RF is the perfect answer for patients who are not yet ready for a facelift, but desire to achieve permanent, surgical-like results. EmbraceRF targets the neck and face through a powerful combination of InMode’s proprietary technologies: FaceTite and Morpheus8. This is the only facial contouring technology to perform subdermal adipose remodeling of the face. The EmbraceRF FaceTite procedure generates heat to “mold” the fat of the lower face in strategic positions in order to contour the jaw line and rejuvenate the neck. The combination of fat being left strategically behind to contour the lower face and neck is further augmented by InMode’s newly cleared FDA Subdermal Adipose Remodeling Device (SARD): the Morpheus 8. The Morpheus8 is applied externally and is the first and only device to mold the fat subdermally in order to morph the aging facial features into a more youthful appearance.
This new concept of facial rejuvenation is unique to EmbraceRF and can only be performed consistently and safely using the synergistic combination FaceTite and Morpheus8. By strategic fat remodeling of the face, a patient can retain the fullness necessary to maintain youthfulness and at the same time tighten skin in the neck and jowl for an optimal result (1). EmbraceRF is a relatively pain-free, single-session, 45-minute procedure that can be performed under local anesthesia in the office, and patients experience only 48 hours of downtime, or a long weekend. EmbraceRF’s new protocol allow plastic surgeons to treat patients that are in the treatment gap category (i.e. not having bad enough skin for a facelift and not good enough skin elasticity for liposuction, or patients at high risk of suffering surgical complications). Those with borderline elasticity (treatment gap patients) of the overlying soft tissue present challenges in obtaining reliable, safe, and reproducible aesthetic outcomes (2). Having the ability to treat a large segment of the population that could be borderline patients (most of whom would be turned down) is a fact that should not be easily dismissed.
