Tighter skin around your face and neck makes you look younger and refreshed. At The Nikolov Center for Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills, California, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Nicholas Nikolov offers a new technology called EmbraceRF to firm up sagging skin around your neck and face. To learn more about the noninvasive procedure, call the office or book an appointment online.


What is EmbraceRF?

EmbraceRF remodels the fat tissue of your face to tighten sagging skin and make you look more youthful. During an EmbraceRF session, Dr. Nikolov can reroute fat from the face to new positions to augment the jaw line and rejuvenate the look of your neck.

EmbraceRF combines radiofrequency-assisted lipolysis with skin resurfacing. With radiofrequency assisted lipolysis, Dr. Nikolov inserts small probes just underneath the surface of your skin, zaps excess fat with radiofrequency energy, and then suctions it away. Simultaneously, radiofrequency energy is applied to the outside of the skin to offer tightening. The skin resurfacing tightens skin and enhances your overall complexion by reducing skin irregularities.

What are the benefits of EmbraceRF?

EmbraceRF is minimally invasive, but gives you a slimmer and more youthful look. It’s especially effective at treating:

  • Skin laxity, especially at the neck and jowls
  • Double chin
  • Deep lines and facial folds
  • Poor skin texture

EmbraceRF works at both superficial and deep layers of your skin to give you comprehensive rejuvenation. You only need one treatment, and the results are immediate and continue to improve over time. Optimal results show at about six weeks.

What should I expect during an EmbraceRF procedure?

Dr. Nikolov puts you under local anesthesia to perform an EmbraceRF procedure. He inserts the small probe underneath the skin to administer the radiofrequency energy and heat your deepest layers of tissue. He applies the special EmbraceRF handpiece to the outer layers of your skin at the same time.

Recovery from EmbraceRF is quite quick, especially compared to invasive surgery. Expect to need just a couple of days of downtime following the procedure.  You’re able to go home after the procedure and resume your regular activities within two to three days.

Who is a good candidate for EmbraceRF?

Men and women in their 30s or older who want the effects of a facelift, but aren’t ready to go in for major surgery, are good candidates. If you have skin laxity and underlying fat concerns, you’re a good candidate. EmbraceRF can help you look your best.
