Embrace RF

Embrace RF

(Non-Surgical Facelift)  HOUSTON

Embrace Radio Frequency 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. EmbraceRF is the new groundbreaking skin tightening solution under local anesthesia. Downtime is minimal with EmbraceRF while results are dramatic and immediately visible. 




How does EMBRACE RF work?

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 Morpheus8.  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 optimal results.

Who is a good candidate for EMBRACE RF? 

An experienced and high skilled plastic surgeon would need to evaluate you, virtually or in-person, to assess your candidacy for Embrace RF. Typically, patients are good candidates for facial contouring with this innovative technology if they have: 

  • Loss of skin elasticity and muscle tone of the face and neck.

  • Appearance of jowls and deep creases between the base of the nose and the corners of the mouth.

  • Facial and neck wrinkles.

  • Tired facial appearance.

  • Desires to improve the signs of aging. 

  • Good general health. 

  • Realistic expectations.

  • Healthy habits (do not smoke or drink alcohol in excess).

  • Poorly defined chin and neck contours.

EMBRACE RF can benefit a broader range of patients 


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. 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.

What are the advantages of Embrace RF?


  • EmbraceRF is a relatively pain-free procedure in comparison with a surgical Facelift.

  • A facial contouring session of EmbraceRF takes as short as 45-minutes on average.

  • It can be performed in the office, under local anesthesia. EmbraceRF patients do not have to worry about general anesthesia side effects such as nausea, vomiting, dry mouth, sore throat, shivering, sleepiness and/or mild hoarseness. ​

  • Recovery time is minimal (only 48 hours of downtime or a long weekend).

  • The superior science of EmbraceRF includes a uniform thermal field which provides an even distribution of heat. 

  • EmbraceRF offers greater safety and control relative to other technologies. The heat gradient enables optimal results, as plastic surgeons are able to set and control the temperatures.

  • There's a 100% energy concentration in the treatment area with this revolutionary technology. 

EMBRACE RF post-operative complications


Possible complications associated with EmbraceRF ar minimal and short-lived. These side effects include bruising and minor swelling and redness which diminish gradually over a week's time. Patients should also be aware that the sub-dermal nature of tissue heating could invite numbness due to minor never bruising. Some other rare side effects include: bleeding, infection, discoloration, allergic reaction to the local anesthesia, skin blistering (only seen in smokers) and skin burn.
