How Evolve Tones Muscle
In the past, surgical procedures like liposuction were your only option to reduce stubborn fat and achieve your ideal body contour when a healthy diet and exercise weren’t enough. Today, new technologies like Evolve are available to help you achieve the appearance you want without surgery. Unlike other options, Evolve also has the benefit of building muscle. Here’s how Evolve achieves effective body contouring and tones muscle.
Evolve works using radiofrequency energy, or radio waves. When administered to the treatment area, these radio waves generate intense heat which destroys fat cells without harming other types of tissue, including the skin that lies above these fat cells.
Other body contouring systems using radiofrequency energy are also available, though none are as advanced as Evolve. Evolve’s system utilizes radio waves that can more deeply penetrate layers of fat within the body. This means that Evolve is much more effective compared to many other competing RF body contouring devices.
CoolSculpting is another popular nonsurgical body contouring option which works by freezing fat cells, rather than heating them, to reduce areas of unwanted fat. Many patients will find that this method results in uneven contouring, with lumps left in the treatment area that must be removed using other methods such as liposuction. This is due to hyperplasia, or cell proliferation, at the treatment area.
Evolve is produced by the same manufacturers as AccuTite, which uses similar RF technology to reduce fat. Evolve and AccuTite can be paired together for more comprehensive, complete body contouring throughout various treatment areas.
In addition to reducing unwanted fat, Evolve is effective in toning muscle. Increasing muscle firmness provides a more effective result in body contouring compared to other options which only serve to reduce fat.
Evolve tightens muscles by stimulating muscle contractions in the treatment area. Using Evolve, patients can create tighter, more toned muscles in areas such as:
• Upper arms
While toning muscle and reducing fat, Evolve also has the benefit of tightening loose skin. This is beneficial for many patients who have minor skin laxity after losing weight, and wish to achieve a body contour that they are unable to with diet and exercise alone. Evolve’s radiofrequency technology stimulates collagen production, resulting in firmer, tighter skin.
Candidates for Evolve treatment should be at a stable weight that is considered healthy. Evolve is not a replacement for an exercise routine; rather, it complements the results that you achieve naturally. While Evolve results in some skin tightening, patients should not have too much loose skin. Dr. Angelchik may recommend another procedure for those who have excessive amounts of loose skin that will yield better results. During a consultation, Dr. Angelchik will review your goals for the procedure and evaluate your health to see if you are a good fit for Evolve.
