Evoke & Evolve: Trim, Tighten, Tone
Trim, Tighten & Tone Non-surgically in Austin, TX
A well-rounded diet and regular exercise are important factors in maintaining a fit, youthful figure, but stubborn pockets of fat, cellulite, loose skin and a lack of muscle definition can affect even the healthiest of us. Traditionally, these concerns had to be addressed with invasive surgical procedures under general anesthesia that come with significant downtime. Now, the medspa at Austin Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery offers an advanced nonsurgical, no downtime solution with the Evoke and Evolve systems from InMode. Evoke and Evolve trim, tighten and tone the face, neck and body-at-large without any incisions. Treatments are quick and comfortable, and there is no associated recovery time. It is a popular option with our patients because you can have your treatment and go about your normal daily activities, immediately. Evoke treats the face and neck, while Evolve treats other areas of the body, such as the abdomen, waist, arms and thighs.
Evoke: Face & Neck Remodeling Without the Downtime
Evoke is an innovative nonsurgical solution designed to remodel the tissues of the face and neck to achieve more defined facial features and jawlines. Austin Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery’s experienced medspa providers tailor your treatments to address your specific goals. Evoke is an excellent solution for patients who want a more youthful yet natural-looking profile, without undergoing even a minimally invasive procedure.
Your Evoke Experience
A complimentary consultation with one of our medspa providers will help determine if you are a good candidate for face and/or neck remodeling with Evoke. The best candidates for Evoke are patients looking for subtler, natural-looking results with no recovery period or downtime.
The treatment itself is customized to your areas of concern. Evoke is the first hands-free applicator designed to deliver a structural reorganization of the face, neck and submental (commonly referred to as “double chin”) tissues. The remodeling of these areas produces results that are associated with a rejuvenated, more youthful appearance. Through the applicators, bipolar radiofrequency (RF) energy is delivered to the cheeks, neck and/or jawline, penetrating deep into the subdermal layer to remodel the dermis and subdermal tissue. Once the RF vibrations reach their site of action, they initiate the formation of collagen, activate the muscles for toning, and lead to the tightening of loose skin, resulting more defined facial characteristics.
Evoke treatments are very quick and comfortable. During your treatment you can expect a warming of your skin, similar to a warm facial. It is a painless treatment that can be done over lunch time. Treatment time is usually 15 to 20 minutes, and a series of three to six weekly treatments is typically recommended, depending on your goals. You will begin to see gradual improvements in the treatment area following your first few sessions.
What are the Benefits of Evoke Treatments?
Evoke provides many benefits, which can include:
- Clearing dead skin cells from the surface of the skin to make room for new cell growth
- Tightening loose skin to improve facial skin smoothness
- Improving blood circulation to the face to increase skin’s radiance
- Initiating new collagen production, which helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Stimulating the muscles to improve muscle tone, which in turn tightens the jawline and cheekbones
Evolve: Body Remodeling Without the Downtime
Evolve’s Trim, Tite and Tone systems destroy pockets of fat and cellulite, tighten loose skin and stimulate muscle contractions to noninvasively remodel the body, all without pain, incisions or surgery. Together, we will develop a treatment plan to address your body goals. Evoke is an excellent solution for patients desiring a more youthful yet natural-looking body contour, without undergoing even a minimally invasive procedure. Evolve can be used to treat many areas of the body, and you may even be able to target multiple body areas during a single session. Areas of treatment include the abdomen, waist, arms, hips, thighs and flanks.
Evolve Trim: Noninvasive Fat Destruction
Evolve Trim targets dimpled skin and cellulite, providing a noninvasive alternative to liposuction. It’s a quick and easy procedure that can be done on your lunch break to treat stubborn pockets of fat and cellulite on the back, abdomen, arms, thighs, around the knees, and on other areas of the body.
Evolve Trim uses radiofrequency (RF) technology to apply volumetric heat deep into the skin’s subdermal layers. The heat is combined with a vacuum and controlled energy pulses to deliver uniform results across the treatment area. Because the heat is delivered to the subdermal layers of the skin with RF energy, you won’t feel discomfort or burning sensations.
Evolve Trim treatments are quick and pain-free. During your treatment you can expect a sensation, similar to a hot stone massage. Treatment time is usually 20 minutes, and a series of six weekly treatments is typically recommended. You can start to see results after your first few treatments and expect the results to improve for weeks after your last treatment.
Evolve Tite: Noninvasive Skin Tightening
Evolve Tite remodels the skin by tightening loose or sagging areas. It is a noninvasive procedure that can be done at the medspa at Austin Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery on your lunch break. This quick and easy procedure is customized to meet your specific concerns. It can treat loose skin on the abdomen after pregnancy or weight loss, loose skin on the upper arms, and other trouble spots.
Evolve Tite leverages clinically proven radiofrequency (RF) technology to deliver volumetric heat to the skin’s subdermal layers. The RF technology ensures the heat is delivered uniformly, so no single area is over or under treated.
Evolve Tite treatments are very quick and comfortable. During your treatment you can expect a warming of your skin, similar to a hot stone massage. It is a painless treatment that can be done over lunch time. Treatment time is usually 45 to 60 minutes, and a series of six to eight treatments spaced at least one week apart is typically recommended. You can begin to see results after just one session, but full results will not be seen until one to two weeks after your last session.
Evolve Tone: Noninvasive Muscle Toning
Even some gym rats don’t get the results they want, no matter how many reps they do or miles they log. If this sounds like you, then Evolve Tone could help you add muscle strength and tone targeted areas. This nonsurgical treatment adds definition, enhancing your physique without the need for surgery. It’s a quick procedure that can add definition to the abdomen, arms, buttocks and more, without any incisions, scarring or recovery time.
Evolve Tone uses electrical signals to stimulate muscle contractions. In an abdominal treatment, for example, Evolve Tone allows you to do the equivalent of 1,000 sit ups in just 30 minutes. Aside from feeling like you got a good workout, there is no downtime after treatment—you are free to go about your usual daily activities. Sessions are usually 30 minutes long, but can be customized based on your goals. There is no limit to how many Evolve Tone sessions you can do. You can expect to start seeing results after a couple of treatments, with full results after you complete your last session.
Who is a good candidate for these treatments?
Most people can be good candidates for Evoke or Evolve treatment. Each works on particular concerns, so some patients choose to have both as a way to manage cosmetic aging.
Evoke treatment clears away dead skin cells and promotes new collagen growth. This collagen remodeling can reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles or postpone their development. It can help naturally tighten the skin on the lower face, and stimulate muscle toning that supports a more defined jawline and cheekbones. These benefits are often sought by adults wanting to turn back the hands of time. Younger adults are also choosing Evoke treatment as a way to get more definition in the mid and lower face.
Evolve body treatment stimulates muscle tone and fat reduction, as well as collagen remodeling for smoother, firmer skin. This non-surgical body contouring treatment can be appropriate for adults of all ages who want to achieve more sculpted curves.
How should I prepare for Evolve and Evoke treatments?
As nonsurgical rejuvenating treatments, Evolve and Evoke require very little planning and preparation. There is no down time for recovery, so no need to arrange time off work. There are no incisions and there is no anesthesia, so patients need not do any special lab work or tests before their treatment. At most, the provider may suggest avoiding alcohol, smoking, and certain medications that may hinder the optimal regeneration of collagen in the deeper layers of the skin.
Can this be combined with other cosmetic procedures/treatments?
Patients often consider how they can maximize the outcome of treatment by combining various modalities. Depending on your goals, this is absolutely possible! As an example, you may be interested in Evoke to sculpt your cheek area or jawline and also have frown lines that you’d like to correct. In this instance, your provider may develop a treatment plan that involves Botox or other injectable treatment. The timing of combined modalities may vary based on the desired end-result. We work with each patient to cater to their needs and preferences, always with the optimal outcome in mind.
Are there any side effects?
The Evolve and Evoke platform uses radiofrequency energy, which permeates the skin to target deeper layers of tissue. While the outer surface of the skin is largely unaffected by these treatments, some patients may notice mild redness or bruising after their appointment. These are minor side effects that typically last no more than a few hours.
Are the treatments painful?
No. One of the significant advantages of Evoke and Evolve technology is that treatment sessions are very comfortable. Patients might feel a warming sensation beneath the skin, indicating that energy is being deposited in target tissue. However, warmth is rarely uncomfortable. There is no need for anesthetic of any kind.
