Non-invasive Total Body Remodel

EvolveX

EvolveX is the latest way to contour the body using proven radio-frequency technology. With InMode’s unique, proprietary approach, the EvolveX system can reveal your sleek, toned silhouette with a simple hands-free system. But, while the methodology is simple, the technology certainly is not! EvolveX’s unique high-tech approach targets skin, fat, and muscle for total-body remodeling. EvolveX combines electro-muscular stimulation (EMS) and radio-frequency technology in a way that only a top laser company like InMode can. EvolveX is InMode’s proprietary non-invasive body contouring option, and it can be applied almost anywhere on the body!

About EvolveX

EvolveX is a safe and effective treatment that delivers exceptional results to build and strengthen muscles, enhance the skin’s appearance, and treat fat without needles or surgery. The EvolveX system is the only all-in-one system that offers three clinically proven technologies:

Tite

Tightens loose, sagging skin by stimulating collagen production.

Tone

Induces forced muscle contractions through gentle electrical stimulation.

Transform

Transform, a combination of Tite & Tone, is the most common application of the EvolveX system at Beleza.

EvolveX has a dual-pronged approach to body remodeling. The first approach, found in the Tite application, uses clinically proven radio-frequency energy (RF) to boost collagen production. Tone uses electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) to stimulate muscle contractions that are not achievable during regular workouts. The systems, used on their own or in combination, offer quantifiable improvement to skin texture, tone, and overall shape quickly and painlessly.

EvolveX’s technology is based on the clinical success of the proprietary A.C.E. technology:

  • Acquire
  • Control
  • Extend

A.C.E. technology targets deep within the skin to ensure that no areas are under or over-treated, to consistently maximize and produce reliable results. During treatments, the body’s temperature is constantly monitored with real-time updates. Additionally, suppose at any point during the procedure you need to pause the treatment. In that case, EvolveX is designed with a Patient Call Button so the Beleza Plastic Surgery & Medi-spa staff can quickly attend to your needs.

Treatments can be customized to address specific needs and address multiple areas at once to reveal a fit, healthy, and more natural-looking silhouette. Unlike a surgical procedure requiring anesthesia and significant downtime, EvolveX requires neither – that’s right, no incisions, no pain, and zero downtime! This system requires no effort: sit back, scroll through your socials, catch up on your email, and let EvolveX do the rest, while you relax and enjoy the warming sensation of the radio-frequency technology.

How does EvolveX Tighten the Skin?

Humans are living longer than ever before, and our culture is more concerned with youth than ever. So it is no wonder that many advances have been made in non and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures like those found in EvolveX.

Radio-frequency energy and other ‘non-excisional’ skin rejuvenation procedures offer patients who wish to avoid surgery an option to address lax skin. Firm, smooth skin will forever be connected to youth because that is when our collagen production is at peak levels. But as we age, collagen production slows down, deteriorating the connections that keep the epidermis lifted. EvolveX targets skin on a downward trajectory due to the passage of time.

Loose skin is a common concern among the aesthetically-minded: there are approximately 150,000 face-lift, breast-lift, arm-lift, and tummy-tuck procedures every year in the United States; skin tightening is one of the fastest growing market segments. [1] 

Radio-frequency energy is the “cutting edge” technology for minimally invasive skin-tightening and allows Beleza to tighten skin without surgery. That means firmer tissue, with no incisions, no scars, and no pain.

Skin Tightening Science

As radio-frequency energy heats the subdermal layer, the tissue is rapidly cooled, resulting in a nonablative disruption of deep collagen fibers. Subsequently, neocollagenesis (a natural component of tissue healing) occurs over the next three to six months with “significant measurable and quantitative skin and tissue tightening” due to increased collagen production. [1]

More About Electrical Muscle Stimulation

Physical therapists have long used the same basic principles behind electrical muscle stimulation to help rehabilitate patients suffering from neurological, orthopedic, and cardiopulmonary conditions. [2] EMS is a lower frequency stimulation associated with athletic training and healthy muscle stimulation. EMS was first presented in 1977 by Dr. Yakov Kots, a Russian researcher who claimed rapid and dramatic strength gains, more effective muscle contraction, and better endurance performance of muscle following EMS training in highly trained athletes. [3]

Modern science and research findings show evidence that applied EMS stimulates involuntary muscle contractions in ways we cannot achieve on our own at the gym. Treatments are customized and tailored to address “problem areas,” so the result is a more defined appearance without incisions, scarring, or downtime. In addition, multiple body areas can be treated simultaneously to increase tone and define the physique.

Candidates for EvolveX

EvolveX is recommended for individuals looking for a non-invasive way to address areas requiring focused reduction, lifting, and tightening. The EvolveX technology is safe and effective for all skin types and tones.

Personal Consultation

During your consultation with a talented and experienced Beleza Plastic Surgery aesthetic provider, you will discuss what you hope to achieve with EvolveX sessions. Your dedicated provider will recommend a treatment plan once your concerns have been presented. In addition, many patients find their consultation is a great time to bring up any other matters that we may be able to address with our extensive menu of medspa services and plastic surgery procedures. Dr. Wooten is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), the only plastic surgical society recognized by the U.S. government. She prides herself on offering a comprehensive approach to her patients’ surgical and cosmetic needs. One of the benefits of visiting the medi-spa of a board-certified plastic surgeon is the ease with which procedures can be combined.

Patients who wish to see more dramatic results also have many other options. Please speak to one of our experienced RNs about what you hope to accomplish from your visit to Beleza Plastic Surgery! Contact us at (724) 759-7777 or (412) 877-9388, or fill out our inquiry form to learn more.

Procedure

EvolveX is designed to be used hands-free and features intelligent programmable technology. During your Tite and Transform treatments, you can expect a warming of your skin, similar to a hot stone massage. Simultaneously, during a Transform or Tite treatment, applicators emit direct electrical muscle stimulation that will induce muscle contractions. As a result, you will feel your muscles contract, similar to what you would experience during a workout, but in a manner that we could never replicate on our own. Most clients find EvolveX comfortable, but should you feel any discomfort or wish to change the intensity, the system provides a Patient Call Button to reach our Beleza staff instantly.

Recovery

There is no recovery period or downtime associated with EvolveX. The procedure is easy and painless; any redness or warmth in the treated area will subside after a few hours.

Results

Following treatment with EvolveX’s penetrating radio-frequency, patients typically notice:

  • A reduction in the folds of the skin
  • Smoother body contours
  • A more toned silhouette
  • Evening out of textural irregularities

For best results, we recommend at least six 60-minute sessions performed over five to six weeks, but your Beleza provider will create a treatment plan for you based on your projected goals. Ask us about membership options, which offer the best value for treating multiple areas with EvolveX. Gradual improvements in the treatment areas will be seen following the first few treatments. Patients can easily schedule EvolveX sessions at Beleza Plastic Surgery during their lunch hour because the procedure requires zero downtime. Then, return to your day, having devoted your lunch break to serious self-care.

FAQ

Does EvolveX treatment hurt?

Can I use EvolveX on my face?

EvolveX is for use on the body only, but we have additional treatments that offer the same effect for the skin of the face, neck, and decolletage, such as Morpheus8 radio-frequency micro-needling.
