Watch Kate’s Story

Kate is a younger female starting to notice less definition in her jawline, and some slight “sagging” of her lower face skin especially around her mouth, under her chin, in her neck, and in her jowl area. She has early skin sagging or loose skin in her family, as her mom has a more full neck, less defined jawline, and early jowling. As a preventative measure, she came to Dr. Emer for options to improve the definition on her jawline, decrease the fat and volume under her chin and in her neck, and to tighten the skin of the neck, jawline and mouth.

Traditionally, liposuction would be performed on the chin and neck to remove fat and help to improve chin and jawline contour. However, liposuction alone can often make for more loose skin and not give nearly as much definition as newer energy-based technologies that work to go under the surface of the skin and melt fat, tighten skin, and contour the lower face, neck, jawline jowls and mouth corners. So options discussed were non-invasive treatments like Coolsculpting or Coolmini (freeze the fat), Trusculpt ID (radiofrequency fat melting), Kybella (fat melting injections) along with Thermage (radiofrequency tightening) and Ultherapy (ultrasound muscle tightening). These non-invasive options would give improvement in the amount of fat and skin tightening but would not be able to give Kate the contour or full lifting she was looking for. So she decided to do an in-office procedure called FaceTite which is internal radiofrequency heating.

FaceTite is a complete body and face contouring solution for small areas of the body such as the lower face and neck; although it has been used to lift the breast and other areas of the body like arms, thighs, kness, elbows and buttock roll. (non-surgical breast lift, arm lift, knee lift, elbow lift, butt lift).

FaceTite is a minimally-invasive body contouring or liposculpting solution for the face and small areas of the body. This is a safe, effective and exciting treatment that offers patients significant aesthetic changes. FaceTite is powered by radiofrequency-assisted liposuction (RFAL) technology three-dimensional remodeling of the tissue which uses a combination of energy and physical power-assisted removal of fat at the same time. It is the next best thing to a facelift or neck lift, as it can tighten the jawline, neck and jowls, while also removing fat and contouring the entire lower face and neck area. Built-in safeguards, including real time measurements of skin and fat temperature, impedance monitoring, power cut-off and audible feedback, help ensure patient safety. In the right hands the patients results are incredible with minimal downtime. After a weekend recovery patients go back to work with mild swelling, minimal bruising and instant results. Full healing takes 6-12 months. See how the treatment is performed here and the amazing results that come from the FaceTite procedure.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

As Emerage Medical reopens to the public, we’re implementing extensive protocols to keep our practice virus-free, and our staff and patients safe. Our approach closely follows public health directives and the latest recommendations from medical journals and academies.

Fewer People, Less Risk
The most visible change is reduced in-office staff. Fewer people means less person-to-person contact. We are only seeing about 25% of our normal patient volume and will only increase this by expanding our operating schedule – not by reducing time between patients.

Here’s How Patients Can Help
1. Please do not bring guests unless absolutely necessary, as they will not be permitted in the waiting room.
2. Please continue to wear a mask or face covering until you enter the exam room.
3. We screen everyone who enters the office – staff and patients alike – about recent travel, flu-like symptoms, and any potential exposure to COVID-19. Please help us by being transparent in your answers.
4. Please allow our staff to take your temperature at check-in using a contactless thermometer.

What to Expect After Check-In
After the check-in screening, patients will be directly escorted to their exam room to complete any paperwork. This is to reduce potential contact with other patients. Clean pens and clipboards will be provided to everyone and resterilized between each use.

Even More Safety Measures
Everyone on our staff has been directed not to come in if they have any symptoms of COVID-19 or recently came in direct contact with anyone who’s tested positive. Here’s what else we’re doing to keep you safer:

  • Staff members will be wearing protective masks at all times.
  • All chairs, surfaces, and non-disposable equipment will be wiped down with antibacterial wipes between patients and at the top of every hour. 
  • All in-person meetings with suppliers, vendors, or salespeople have been canceled to reduce unnecessary foot traffic.
  • Hand-sanitizing stations are available in nearly every area of the office.
  • The entire practice will be cleaned each night, including periodic deep cleanings to further sanitize the premises.
