Have you ever wondered if there were a way to transform your look and reverse some of the common effects of aging without an invasive treatment? At Gold Skin Care in Nashville, TN, we offer EVOKE, a revolutionary non-surgical facial contouring technology that can remodel the face without scarring or invasive procedures.
How Non-Surgical Facial Contouring Works
EVOKE uses radio-frequency technology to cause the tissues of your face to reorganize in a more youthful way. Instead of mechanically making a change by cutting into tissue and moving it around with invasive procedures, threads, or even the injection of chemicals, this treatment uses your body’s own powerful healing and regeneration powers to enhance your look.
The RF energy that EVOKE sends into the treatment area penetrates the outer layer of the skin to affect the deeper layers.
What Is Treatment Good For?
This treatment can:
- Reduce skin laxity
- Tighten and tone the skin
- Smooth contours
- Increase collagen production
- Shrink areas of unwanted fat
- Address fine lines and wrinkles
- Treat acne scarring
There is more than this treatment can do, so the best way to get started is to schedule a consultation with us. We’ll help you evaluate your skin and decide whether EVOKE is the ideal way to reach your personal aesthetic goals.
How Does Radiofrequency Help?
This non-surgical facial contouring technique is tailor-made for social distancing because it is hands-free. It uses heat generated by radiofrequency energy to signal to your body to get rid of unwanted fat cells and produce more collagen to strengthen your skin.
Once treatment is over, your face and chin will have a more contoured shape. Your body will start producing more collagen, which will give your skin more strength and stimulate the production of a firmer matrix beneath the outer layer of the skin. The outer skin layer relies on this inner matrix for support and connection to the muscle and fat layers below. The stronger this matrix, the smoother and firmer the skin appears.
The Science Behind RF Contouring
Non-surgical facial contouring relies on heat energy generated by collisions between molecules and ions. When this heat hits the lower layers of the skin, the body responds as if it had sustained an injury. Essentially, you are tricking your body into sending healing and rejuvenating elements, such as collagen, into the area. With more collagen, your skin becomes firmer and tighter.
In addition, the heat damages fat cells while keeping all other tissues in the area perfectly safe. As the fat cells are damaged, they break apart and are whisked away by the body’s lymphatic system. While this is not a weight-loss treatment, it can help you to contour areas of stubborn fat that resist diet and exercise.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
This particular treatment is made to work on the neck, face, cheeks, jowls, and chin.
What Should I Expect?
The first step in choosing a treatment is a consultation. Dr. Gold will review the areas you hope to have treated and discuss your goals. This is also the time when we’ll collect your personal and medical history so we can develop an effective plan that will meet your needs.
Once we know that this treatment is right for you, we can tailor the device to your specific needs. EVOKE works through a sophisticated algorithm that is programmed according to your skin type and goals.
This allows us to maintain a safe social distance while the treatment device is working but still personalize the treatment so it’s right for you. The treatment device will concentrate heat in just the right spots to get you the results you’re looking for.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
There are a few things that make you a particularly good candidate for non-surgical facial contouring, but in general, most healthy people can safely seek treatment. The best candidates have a healthy weight and have been able to keep their weight stable for a while. That’s because this treatment is for contouring, not for weight loss. It’s also a good idea to have healthy and realistic expectations about what this treatment can do.
Because this treatment is non-invasive and doesn’t come with a laundry list of side effects, there is almost nothing that could keep you from getting treatment. In fact, one of the best things about this treatment is that it is color-blind. RF energy is effective on all skin types, colors, and tones. This is in happy contrast to many other aesthetic treatments, which are only safe to use on certain limited skin tones or colors.
Is Treatment Painful?
The idea of RF heat energy being directed at your skin may be concerning, but this is a comfortable treatment. There are no incisions, injections, or any other invasive procedures involved. All you’ll feel is mild warmth.
What Kind of Safety Features Does EVOKE Use?
There is no danger of burns or other unwanted effects from non-surgical facial contouring, and that’s in large part due to the sophisticated technology behind it. The device monitors temperatures constantly. It will turn off if temperatures go above the set maximum, and audible indicators provide constant feedback during the treatment.
Because the device can fit on your face or neck for treatment, it’s possible for your practitioner to be socially distant without compromising your treatment in any way. At the same time, a call button allows you to instantly communicate with us if you have a question or concern.
