Answering Common Questions About Evolve Body ContouringPosted on Monday, March 8th, 2021 by Douglas M. Stevens, MD
Evolve is quickly becoming a popular option at the practice of Dr. Douglas Stevens because of its ability to sculpt a beautiful, firm physique without surgery. In this post, Dr. Stevens will explain how Evolve technology works and what treatment entails.
How does Evolve work?
Evolve leverages the power of radiofrequency energy to produce a thermal effect in the deep tissues. This melts unwanted body fat, tones muscles and causes loose skin to tighten. Evolve is minimally invasive and very well tolerated by our patients.
What areas of the body does Evolve treat?
Evolve is commonly used to contour the abdomen, hips, thighs, flanks, buttocks, upper arms and back.
Can I have multiple areas treated simultaneously?
Yes, if you wish to melt fat, tone muscles or tighten skin in more than one area of your body, Evolve can help you.
Can Evolve treat cellulite?
Yes, Evolve can improve the dimpled or puckered appearance of cellulite around your body.
Who is a good candidate for Evolve?
Evolve is best suited to individuals who are healthy and close to their goal weight, yet have pesky unwanted fat, lax muscles or loose skin that they cannot burn off with diet or exercise.
How long does Evolve treatment take?
An Evolve treatment session takes about 30 to 60 minutes to complete.
Do patients report any pain during treatment?
No, Evolve is regarded as a virtually pain-free treatment. There are thermal sensors built into the applicators to monitor your skin surface temperature and prevent discomfort.
You can relax during your procedure and watch television, read or listen to music.
Are there any incisions?
No incisions are required. A series of applicators and belts direct the radiofrequency energy at the targeted area of your body to melt fat and cause skin contraction.
Will Evolve leave scars?
No. Since no incisions are made, scarring is not a concern.
How many sessions will I need to achieve my goals?
The number of treatment sessions depends on your individual needs and goals. We will design a customized plan for you upon evaluation. Most patients need three to eight treatments to see results.
When will I see results after treatment?
You will begin to see a gradual improvement in the treated area(s) after several sessions.
