Are you frustrated with stubborn fat, loose skin, cellulite, and poor muscle tone? Are you bothered by flabby arms, a belly pooch, dimply thighs, and droopy buttocks that won’t go away despite your efforts to diet and exercise?
The Evolve system by InMode offers innovative body contouring and skin tightening technology to address a list of issues. The Evolve all-in-one platform offers Evolve Tite, Evolve Trim, and Evolve Tone non-surgical treatments to tighten and smooth the skin while toning the muscles
Evolve Tite is used for skin rejuvenation and tightening. This device uses radiofrequency energy to send heat deep into the skin, which causes the skin to tighten as the skin cells repair and regenerate. Evolve Tite uses eight hands-free applicators and can be used to address several parts of the body simultaneously.
The Evolve Trim system contours the body by reducing fat, smoothing cellulite, and tightening the skin. Evolve Trim uses six applicators to apply radiofrequency energy to deep layers of subcutaneous fat. The heat is able to break down fat cells, and the tissues in the target area are reshaped using vacuum technology. The fat eliminated is permanently removed.
Evolve Tone is used to tone the muscles. This system uses electric muscle stimulation (EMS), which creates involuntary muscle contractions. Four hands-free stimulators target specific muscle groups, and as the muscles contract, they increase in strength and tone.
You may be a good candidate for Evolve if you:
The best way to ensure that you are a good candidate for Evolve is to complete a consultation. During your consultation, Dr. Agullo will be able to answer all your questions and provide you with professional advice on if and how Evolve can work for you.
Each of the Evolve systems is designed to address specific concerns. If you are affected by skin laxity, lack of muscle tone, cellulite, and excess fat, you may be able to undergo treatment with all of the Evolve systems to meet your needs. Discuss your concerns with Dr. Agullo to determine the best treatment plan for you.
Preparation can have a significant effect on your experience with your procedure. Although Evolve is not an invasive procedure, it is still important to prepare your mind and body for treatment to promote optimal, realistic results. Try your best to follow all the preparation instructions given by your surgeon and clarify any of your concerns.
To prepare for your Evolve procedure, you may be asked to:
Evolve is a non-surgical treatment, and it does not require an extensive recovery period. There may be some mild soreness and redness, and patients should take it easy initially, but most patients are able to return to regular activities immediately.
You should be able to see your results immediately; however, more obvious results will become visible a few weeks following the procedure. The results will continue to develop following the procedure because your body continues to break down and flush out the fat as well as repair the cells. Evolve works by jump-starting this process, so the body continues to improve itself from the inside out.
Yes. Evolve is approved by the FDA for body contouring and also has regulatory technology built in that helps to ensure a safe level of heat is being used. Evolve also has automatic shut off and heat reduction features that allow the procedure to be paused or stopped at any time, if needed.
Evolve can be used for body contouring, but it should not be considered a weight loss surgery and cannot replace a healthy lifestyle. Patients are advised to diet and exercise to be near their goal weight and then undergo Evolve treatments to help define their contours in ways that may not be possible naturally.
The treatment results with Evolve are permanent. Evolve Tite can be repeated to achieve more fat reduction. A maintenance regimen is recommended for Evolve Tite, as we know that skin will naturally continue to age and loosen. As with any muscle building regimen, Evolve Tone should be combined with maintenance treatments to maintain the tone of the muscles. Of course, the best way to keep your results for as long as possible is to maintain a healthy lifestyle with diet and exercise.
The cost of Evolve can vary depending on which Evolve treatment you undergo (Tite, Trim, and/or Tone), the extent of the treatment, and the number of treatments. Generally speaking, cosmetic treatments are considered “elective” and are not covered by most insurance plans.
The exact price of each Evolve treatment can only be determined after a thorough consultation. These are often bundled into specific packages and maintenance treatments individually depending on each patient’s goals. Dr. Agullo charges a consultation fee of $100, which is applied to the cost of your treatment. All fees must be paid in full prior to the scheduled treatment.
While CoolSculpting® uses cold to freeze fat, Evolve Tite uses radiofrequency to heat and melt the fat away permanently.
Like EMSculpt®, Evolve Tone uses electromagnetic stimulation (EMS) to work out your muscles. Instead of treating one area with EMSculpt®, Evolve Tone has four treatment modules that can treat two muscle groups at once.
Unlike any of these, Evolve Tone is the only radiofrequency treatment modality that can also tighten skin at the same time.
