At RoseHall Medical Aesthetics in Bowie, MD, we offer a treatment called Evoke by InMode that uses radiofrequency energy to naturally tighten the skin. This skin tightening device provides an effective, non-surgical, transformative treatment that can address skin laxity and reverse the most common signs of aging. If you’re interested in experiencing this results-driven treatment, we can give you more details during your initial pre-treatment consultation.
What Is Evoke?
Evoke is a skin tightening treatment by InMode. It is FDA-approved to remodel and tighten the skin on the face, jawline, and neck. It can address the most common signs of aging that result from volume loss and skin laxity.
The treatment device uses advanced technology and radiofrequency heat energy to cause an instant contraction of existing collagen and stimulate the body to increase natural collagen and elastin production to promote improved volume and tighter skin.
What Are the Benefits of This Skin Tightening Treatment?
One of the main benefits of this skin tightening treatment is that it’s completely non-surgical. It doesn’t require any anesthesia before treatment or that patients plan on a lengthy or painful recovery. Some of the other treatment benefits include the following:
- There’s no downtime
- There are no required incisions
- It’s completely needle-free
- Treatments are quick
- It can meet the needs of patients with all skin types and tones
- There’s no risk of post-treatment hyperpigmentation
- It can be scheduled in combination with other professional skin care treatments
- Results are long-lasting
- Maintenance treatments can extend results longer-term
- It provides a natural way to combat, delay, and reverse the aging process
How Does It Work?
Evoke uses radiofrequency heat energy to increase the temperature of the dermal layers. In doing so, it forces the body to respond with a healing reaction that results in an increase in collagen and elastin production. The device can heat the skin to a temperature of 109°F, but patients won’t have to worry about any discomfort. The sensation resulting from the heat energy feels similar to a hot stone massage.
We can combine this treatment with our other professional options to address any additional cosmetic or aging-related concerns. During your initial consultation, we can give you more details about our additional treatments and how we can maximize your results by combining them with Evoke. Then, we can create a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses every area of concern.
What Can It Treat?
We can use Evoke to treat the most common signs of aging on the middle and lower half of the face and the neck. The device’s radiofrequency energy can stimulate collagen production to treat nasolabial folds, smile lines, jowls, a double chin, and skin laxity. It can tighten and tone different facial areas, improve skin firmness, and rejuvenate the overall appearance.
What Should I Expect From a Treatment?
The first step in this process is an initial consultation. We’ll meet with you to discuss your treatment goals, give you more information about the device and how it works, and answer any of your questions. We’ll also use this time to evaluate the areas you want to treat and confirm your treatment eligibility. Then, we can move forward with the right treatment plan to help you achieve tighter and younger-looking skin.
Once we confirm that this treatment is right for you, we can schedule your first appointment. You won’t have to follow a long list of instructions to prepare for your treatment, but you will need to avoid sun exposure and anything that could irritate your skin, including specific topical anti-aging products.
Planning for Post-Treatment Care
Once your treatment is over, you can resume your normal skin care regimen. Make sure you have a quality sunscreen that you can wear to protect your skin since it will be more sensitive to the sun immediately following your treatment.
When Will I See the Results?
You may see some initial results immediately following your treatment since the device will cause your existing collagen to contract, which can create the appearance of tighter and firmer skin. However, the best results won’t be visible until the first several weeks after completing your treatment plan because it can take your body up to three months to produce more collagen and elastin. However, you’ll notice gradually improving results over time.
How Long Will My Results Last?
This treatment is designed to deliver long-lasting results. Still, because you cannot completely stop the aging process, you may notice additional areas with skin laxity in the years following your treatment. The good news is you can schedule maintenance sessions to address those additional skin concerns in the future.
How Many Sessions Will I Need?
You will see results after one treatment, but our patients notice the best results after undergoing a treatment plan that includes a series of sessions with a few weeks between each.
Once we evaluate your skin and primary concerns in person, we can better project how many sessions you should schedule for the best results. Every treatment you schedule will work towards helping you achieve tighter and younger-looking skin. After every session, your body will respond to the treatment process to naturally heal and rejuvenate your skin.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
Patients who want to address collagen loss and skin laxity but aren’t ready to commit to a surgical or invasive procedure make good candidates for Evoke. Since the treatment doesn’t require downtime and doesn’t cause discomfort, it’s the perfect option for those who want to address moderate to more severe signs of aging without committing to surgery.
If you’re unsure whether this treatment is right for you, you can schedule a consultation at our office and we’ll give you more details and determine your treatment eligibility.
