Some of the most telltale yet inevitable signs of aging are jowls, or drooping skin that hangs below the jawline making it less defined. Sagging neck skin is another unfortunate byproduct of the passage of time.
But a new therapy, Evoke, a non-invasive facial remodeling treatment, can combat these signs. Now available at Advanced Dermatology & Skin Cancer Associates, Evoke tightens the skin and delivers more defined facial characteristics.
What is Evoke Skin Treatment?
Evoke is an innovative facial sculpting technology that provides cosmetic enhancements without surgery or incisions. The treatment alters and restructures the skin and fat tissues in the treated area, making your skin look younger and more vibrant.
Using bipolar radio frequency, Evoke delivers energy that penetrates deep into the subdermal layer. The heat induces an inflammatory response necessary for the body to produce collagen and elastin, which tightens skin and makes it firmer. The system is designed for the treatment of the face and neck regions, including the cheeks, jowls, chin and jawline.
Most people are candidates for Evoke treatment, though it is considered a cosmetic procedure and may not be covered by insurance.
How Evoke Works
Evoke treatment is administered through a hands-free headset worn by the patient and overseen by one of Advanced Dermatology’s board-certified dermatologists. The headset directs heat to certain areas, stimulating collagen and elastin and targeting subcutaneous fat. By controlling the depth of penetration of the Evoke system, more precise placement of energy can be delivered.
Patients undergoing Evoke therapy generally experience no pain or discomfort during the procedures, only a slight warmth. Most people relax with a book, their phone or even take a nap during the process. Afterward, the skin may exhibit a mild redness but most daily activities can be resumed soon after the treatment.
