Energy-Based Dermal Volumizer in San Francisco
As we age, our faces can lose volume due to sun damage and a breakdown in collagen and hyaluronic acid. This can lead to a gaunt, hollow appearance as well as facial lines and wrinkles. Our Evolastin treatment in San Francisco and Irvine is the first minimally invasive energy-based treatment with the ability to deliver precise amounts of radio frequency energy beneath the skin. In just a single treatment, Evolastin can help tone and add volume to your skin.
How Does evolastin Work?
Rather than focusing on simply tightening the skin like other treatments, evolastin uses focused radiofrequency energy to stimulate your skin’s production of the essential components to youthful skin – collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin. This three-dimensional approach allows for an overall improvement and rejuvenation of your skin.
Evolastin is a minimally invasive procedure, using a microneedle electrode array to heat the area beneath the skin with bi-polar radio frequency energy. This process of inflicting controlled “thermal injuries” to the deep dermis of your skin stimulates your body’s healing process which in-turn builds new collagen, hyaluronic acid and elastin over time. As your body continues to produce more of these substances, your skin’s thickness, elasticity and firmness will improve.
Our San Francisco plastic surgeons can treat several skin issues using evolastin, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles of the lower face
- Jowls and sagging skin
- Lack of facial definition
- Turkey neck
Not everyone is right for the evolastin procedure. During your consultation, one of our doctors will speak with you about your expectations and goal look. In some cases, surgery may be a better option if you are experiencing more severe areas of sagging skin.
How Long Will it Take to Recover from evolastin?
Your treatment will typically take about an hour, after which you may experience some discomfort or slight pain along the treated area. As your skin continues the process of healing itself, there will be some bruising or yellowing over the next few days after your treatment, as well as some bumpy areas and red spots.
Don’t worry! These are all normal indications of the healing process and will fade within a week or two. After about 6-8 weeks, the healing process should start showing visible improvements in your skin. You will notice a fuller, more youthful appearance following your evolastin treatment with long-lasting results.
