EMFACE for the submental area

EMFACE Submentum, sometimes referred to as “EMFACE for the submental area,” is a specialized treatment targeting the region beneath the chin, commonly known as the submentum or submental area. This area often accumulates excess fat and can contribute to the appearance of a double chin. EMFACE Submentum works by utilizing a combination of advanced technologies to address excess fat and tighten the skin in this area, resulting in a more defined and sculpted jawline.



The procedure typically begins with a consultation with a trained provider to assess the patient’s specific concerns and goals. During the treatment, a handheld device equipped with EMFACE technology is applied to the skin surface in the submental area. This device emits targeted electromagnetic energy pulses, which penetrate the skin and reach the underlying fat cells.

The electromagnetic energy delivered by the EMFACE device works through a process called selective thermal lipolysis. This process involves heating the fat cells in the submental area to a precise temperature, causing them to undergo apoptosis, or programmed cell death. Over time, the body naturally metabolizes and eliminates these damaged fat cells, resulting in a reduction in submental fat volume.

In addition to targeting excess fat, EMFACE Submentum also stimulates collagen production and promotes skin tightening in the treated area. The electromagnetic energy emitted by the device penetrates deep into the skin, stimulating fibroblasts to produce new collagen and elastin fibers. This leads to improved skin firmness, elasticity, and overall texture in the submental region.


One of the key benefits of EMFACE Submentum is its non-invasive nature, as it does not require incisions, anesthesia, or downtime associated with surgical procedures. Patients typically experience minimal discomfort during the treatment, with most describing a warm sensation in the treated area. There is also little to no downtime after the procedure, allowing patients to resume their normal activities immediately.


The results of EMFACE Submentum become gradually noticeable over the following weeks and months as the body naturally eliminates the treated fat cells and collagen remodeling takes place. Patients can expect to see a reduction in submental fullness and an improvement in jawline contouring, leading to a more defined and youthful appearance.

Overall, EMFACE Submentum offers a safe, effective, and non-invasive solution for addressing excess fat and loose skin in the submental area. By harnessing the power of advanced technology, EMFACE provides patients with a customized treatment approach to achieve their aesthetic goals and restore confidence in their appearance.
