What Is Achieved With Evoke?
Evoke’s patented radio-frequency technology is used to tighten the skin and reduce the appearance of fat deposits around the jaw. This creates a stronger-looking, more defined jaw, which can increase your confidence.
Contoured and Enhanced Cheekbones
By reducing fat in the cheeks, Evoke can highlight the cheekbones and create a stronger, more youthful appearance. The treatment is fully customizable—targeting specific areas of fat or applied more broadly for a more general effect. In either case, the degree of contouring is highly precise, allowing your doctor to provide you with the results you desire.
Tightened Cheeks and Jowls
One of the significant advantages of RF technology is that it tightens loose skin. This means that sagging cheeks or jowls can be reduced without requiring expensive and invasive facelift or neck lift procedures.
What Does Evoke Entail?
Evoke uses a hands-free device to deliver RF waves to achieve dramatic results. Your technician will place the specially designed headgear over your head and cheeks or under your jawline. This fully programmable hands-free equipment targets the problem areas and provides uniform heat distribution for top-quality results. You may feel mild warmth during the procedure.
Your physician can easily monitor the process from a treatment screen nearby. Evoke has built-in features that also monitor temperature and help ensure maximum safety. The simple, hands-free process allows you to read, nap, or even watch TV during your treatment.
Due to its non-invasive nature, Evoke requires no downtime. You may see a bit of redness in your cheeks or jowls right after the procedure, but this flushed appearance often disappears within a few hours. With this simple process, you can return to your regular activities immediately afterward. You can even enjoy Evoke facial remodeling during your lunch break, then return to work right away.
Evoke treatments are non-invasive and should not result in any scaring. Some RF technologies can induce burns under rare circumstances, but Evoke has safety protocols in place to prevent such rare occurrences.
The cost of Evoke treatments may vary depending on the areas treated and the number of treatments needed.
Evoke treatments are nearly painless. Most patients will experience a slight warming sensation in the treated area. In some cases, a slight burning sensation may occur. If this occurs, your technician will adjust the level of RF energy to eliminate this discomfort.
Frequently Asked Questions About Evoke
What are the requirements to undergo Evoke?
Candidates for Evoke should be in good health, with no skin conditions that could impede the healing process. Any patient concerned about excess fat or sagging skin on their face and neck is a potential candidate. Candidates should have realistic expectations of their results as Evoke will not provide the same results as a surgical facelift.
What results can I expect from Evoke’s facial remodeling?
Evoke can help create a better-defined jawline and more sculpted cheeks. You can also expect the skin in the treatment area to appear more youthful, rejuvenated, and smoother.
Naturally, every patient is unique. Dr. Taylor will discuss your expectations and what you hope to accomplish with Evoke’s facial remodeling during your initial consultation. Regardless, your enhanced appearance is achieved without surgery, scars, anesthesia, or recovery time.
To enhance your Evoke results further, consider combining your treatment with another radio-frequency treatment, such as:
How long will it take to see the final results?
Most patients will see initial results in a few weeks following treatment. Final Evoke results may take between three and six months to fully develop. The lag time is due to radio-frequency energy breaking down specific cellular structures, which the body must rebuild over time. This process ensures that the new tissues are firmer, tighter, and more youthful.
How long will the results of Evoke last?
Most patients will experience results that last between two and three years. With proper lifestyle changes and good skin care, this time may be extended. On the other hand, without proper skin care, results may fade sooner. For this reason, Dr. Taylor suggests that patients avoid direct sunlight on treated areas as much as possible during the first six months following treatment.
Are there risks associated with Evoke?
There are no known risks associated with Evoke treatment for skin laxity and facial contouring for most patients. That said, certain conditions may cause your doctor to decline to perform the treatment for safety’s sake. These conditions may include the following:
- The patient has a pacemaker or other electronic implants
- The patient has metallic implants in the treated area (such as screws, bolts, or plates)
- Skin cancer or history of skin cancer in the treated area
- Patients with medical conditions that may be exacerbated by heat
- Any open wounds, sores, or rashes in the treatment area
- Any unhealed surgical incisions or other wounds in the treated area
- If the target area has been treated with skin laser systems within the last three to six months
