Gone are the days when plastic surgery was the only solution to eliminate fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. As science and technology evolve, minimally invasive procedures – like Morpheus8 and Emface – are coming into the spotlight with the promise to turn back your biological clock without surgery and hardly any downtime.

That’s right. You no longer need to spend a fortune or go under the knife to rejuvenate your skin.

But with so many treatments available – all claiming to be the best – how do you decide which one is best for you?

To help you make the right choice, we compared two of our all-time favorite nonsurgical facial liftsMorpheus8 and Emface. They’re both highly effective for toning and tightening facial muscles and fighting aging signs without the discomfort and inconvenience of a surgical procedure.

Keep reading to learn what all the fuss is about with these technologies, so you can make an informed decision.

The Magic of Nonsurgical Facelifts and Radiofrequency

What do these two treatments have in common? Both Morpheus8 and Emface are nonsurgical facelifts. They’re part of a new trend in dermatology that offers the same benefits and outstanding results as a traditional facelift – but without downtime or the need for incisions. They’re also much more affordable.

And the advantages don’t stop there.

Both Morpheus8 and Emface use radiofrequency for wrinkle reduction and skin-tightening. If you haven’t yet heard about radiofrequency and the wonders it can do to your skin, let us introduce you to this technology.

Radiofrequency is scientifically proven to

  • tighten your skin,
  • remove wrinkles,
  • induce collagen production, and
  • remodel fat…

…with controlled thermal energy delivered in the deepest dermis layers, where collagen and elastin are produced.

The rejuvenating potential of this technique is exponential.

Now that you know the technology behind Morpheus8 and Emface, let’s deep dive into each treatment, so you can choose which one is more appropriate for your skin goals.

Morpheus8 Treatment

There’s a good reason why fractional radiofrequency energy has become so popular over the years. It’s fast, highly efficient, affordable, minimally invasive, and provides long-lasting, natural results with minimal downtime and discomfort.

Now think of all the proven benefits of microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) for renovating your skin from the inside out by boosting collagen production through your body’s natural healing ability.

Did you get the picture? Morpheus8 is the perfect marriage between radiofrequency and microneedling.

In this upgraded version of microneedling, the tiny needles that provoke the micro-injuries in your skin also deliver fractional radiofrequency energy. This makes the technique superior to standard collagen induction therapy.

In addition to using controlled radiofrequency to remodel fat and facial contours, Morpheus8 tiny needles can target customized dermis depths according to each patient’s needs. They can reach anywhere from 0.5mm to as deep as 8mm (with Morpheus8 Body). That’s a big difference from traditional microneedling, which can only target a maximum of 2mm depth.

The combination of these two proven-effective technologies makes Morpheus8 a game-changer treatment for rejuvenating your skin.

While the micro-injuries trigger new collagen and elastin, the fractional radiofrequency reduces wrinkles and allows fat remodeling at deeper depths of the dermis – in both small and larger areas of your body.

That means Morpheus8 can be used in any skin tissue – from the most delicate, like the eyes, neck, and lips, to the roughest ones, like the belly, thighs, buttocks, and arms – resulting in firm, tightened skin, volume control, and fat reduction.

No wonder Morpheus8 is considered one of the best nonsurgical facelifts available in the market.

Expect results as dramatic and long-lasting as a surgical facelift without the downsides! Benefits include:

  • Overall improvement of your skin and facial muscles
  • Firmer, tighter, and smoother skin
  • Reduction of your wrinkles, fine lines, and stretch marks
  • Increase in collagen production
  • Restoration of lost volume in your face due to aging
  • Short treatment with little to no downtime
  • Long-lasting to permanent results (so long as you have at least one maintenance session per year)

Emface Technology

Like Morpheus8, Emface also uses fractional radiofrequency energy… but without needles.

That’s right. Emface is another superior nonsurgical facelift, delivering excellent results – with the advantage of being 100% non-invasive and needle-free.

It’s proven effective in

  • reducing wrinkles,
  • toning facial muscles,
  • restoring facial contours,
  • boosting collagen, and
  • lifting sagging skin…

…without surgery.

The technology behind Emface is a combination of radiofrequency with electromagnetic energy to restore your look by decades and painlessly bring back the youthful state of your face in only a few sessions.

This two-in-one procedure delivers radiofrequency energy to target your skin, reducing wrinkles and inducing collagen production. But at the same time, electromagnetic energy targets the facial muscles (using Emsculpt technology) – selectively activating, contracting, and toning them for a lifting effect.

Targeting skin and muscles simultaneously makes Emface unique because it allows for restoring facial contours and improving your facial symmetry while lifting any sagging skin and removing your wrinkles. Perfect for men and women.

And all of this with absolutely no downtime or pain!

Here’s what you can expect from this revolutionary skin treatment:

  • 37% fewer wrinkles
  • 30% more muscle tone
  • 23% more lift
  • 26% increase in collagen
  • 93% of clients reported volume improvement

The Bottom Line: Morpheus8 vs. Emface

Both Morpheus8 and Emface keep their promise of fighting your aging signs in a highly efficient, fast, minimally invasive, and economical way.

The effect of these treatments on your skin, facial muscles, body (for Morpheus8), and self-esteem is priceless.

Choosing between one or the other depends more on your skin’s needs and goals:

Example 1 If you feel that the sagging skin on your neck or jaw is bothering you, you may want to choose a procedure that allows for remodeling your facial contours while boosting collagen production, like Morpheus8.

Example 2 If you think needles are a deal-breaker, then Emface is definitely your go-to option. You’ll still get the results of a facelift without the slight discomfort of microneedling.

A regenerative specialist can help you decide which procedure and protocol most suits your expectations and delivers the best results for you.
