Tighter, smoother skin creates a more youthful appearance, helping us move through our days with confidence. Even just a few years ago, tightening loose skin on the face meant anesthesia, large scars, and massive downtime. EmbraceRF is a cutting-edge, non-invasive alternative to surgery that gets tremendous results for Eterna Cosmetic Surgery patients in San Antonio.

What is EmbraceRF?

EmbraceRF is a two-step procedure in which FaceTite is performed on the lower face and neck, and while the patient’s skin is still numb, Morpheus8 is subsequently performed on the previously treated area.

While a face lift and neck lift require invasive surgery and a significant recovery and healing process, EmbraceRF is minimally invasive and requires just a few days of downtime. Unlike surgery, there are no large scars with EmbraceRF, just tiny pin pricks that heal shortly after treatment.  

EmbraceRF improves the texture of the skin, firming it and minimizing pores. Results include improvements to fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, acne scars, and sun damage. This cutting-edge treatment provides more impressive skin tightening results than any other device or treatment on the market.

How does EmbraceRF work?

Using two technologies, FaceTite and Morpheus8, Dr. Hernandez delivers exceptional results to patients in San Antonio with EmbraceRF treatment. First, FaceTite utilizes radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis to simultaneously dissolve fat and tighten the skin. Morpheus8 uses advanced microneedling technology with 24 needles to deliver radiofrequency energy below the skin to further tighten the skin and mold any fat for a desirable appearance.

Who is a suitable candidate for EmbraceRF?

Outside of EmbraceRF, the only way to get such significant, impressive results is with surgery -- a lower face lift and neck lift. In many instances, patients who are not ready for a face lift or neck lift can get significant firming and lifting of the skin and tissues in the lower face and neck with EmbraceRF.

Patients in their 30s, 40s, and 50s are often ideal candidates for EmbraceRF, as they are beginning to see the signs of aging; however, their skin is not significantly damaged to the point where a surgical face lift or neck lift is the only alternative that can achieve desired results.

What happens during EmbraceRF treatment?

Following your initial, personal consultation with Dr. Hernandez at Eterna Cosmetic Surgery in San Antonio, Dr. Hernandez will recommend a specific treatment plan to help you reach your specific goals.

During treatment, The FaceTite device (followed by the Morpheus8 attachment) is held to the area of concern. EmbraceRF treatment uses FaceTite and Morpheus8 technologies to generate and apply heat energy to the underlying layers of fat and skin tissue.

The radiofrequency energy applied during FaceTite and Morpheus8 allows for the remodeling and augmentation of your skin and underlying fat, resulting in a more rejuvenated appearance.

EmbraceRF treatment is typically completed in under an hour, depending on the area and scope of treatment needed.

What happens after EmbraceRF treatment?

Results from EmbraceRF are permanent, and are most often achieved during one treatment. EmbraceRF typically provides patients with some immediate results. Your skin will appear firmer, and you should notice a slimming effect where stubborn fat was removed from under the chin during FaceTite. Results will continue to improve after treatment, with optimal results typically occurring about 12 weeks after your treatment with Dr. Hernandez in San Antonio.

Immediately following EmbraceRF treatment, Dr. Hernandez will apply a soothing, hydrating cream to calm the skin and minimize redness. Patients may also opt to use their own PRP (platelet rich plasma) to aid results and healing. Plasma contains significant growth factors and nutrients to calm the skin and boost results, reaching into the deepest layers of the skin through the small openings created during the Morpheus8 component of EmbraceRF treatment.  

Most patients will be able to return home and resume normal activity within a day or two of their treatment. Dr. Hernandez  will provide you with a compression wrap that you wear at night to assist with healing and ensure the best possible outcome.
