Facelift - I was wondering could EMS (electrical muscle stimulator) for the face cause fat atrophy? I have read that RF (radio frequency) can cause this side effect because of thermal heating. Would EMS also be able to cause this effect and also are there any other possible irreversible side effects? Thanks Lisa. P.S. I have been using the Rio 60-second face lift EMS device.

You're in luck! You have nothing to worry about because the Rio 60-second facelift EMS device has minimal effects of any kind - wanted or unwanted! The device has very low levels of energy and if it has any tightening effect, it is probably measured only in minutes. There have been no clinical studies to show that it has any short or long term effect and therefore does not appear to have any effect on fat atrophy.
