There are a lot of things you can achieve with your body through a healthy, balanced diet and adequate exercise, but some concerns are not treatable through exercise, products, or other home remedies. After weight loss, you may struggle with areas of loose, sagging skin or desire a more toned look to enhance your work in the gym.
Skin can stretch and become thinner as you lose weight or postpartum and the issue many people face is their skin not “snapping back.”It can be a frustrating issue to deal with when you’ve worked hard to achieve your goals and deserve to feel good!
This can be when we recommend Evolve as the perfect pairing with our medical weight loss programs. The weight loss and body contouring specialists at Amy Brenner, MD & Associates offer the latest and greatest programs and technologies to help our patients feel comfortable and confident in their bodies.

A word on skin laxity
Before going into how we can improve skin laxity with Evolve’s technology, it’s important to understand how this skin condition forms in the first place.
Your skin relies on two vital proteins for firmness and structure: collagen and elastin. Collagen gives your skin support, while elastin helps skin maintain flexibility. Combined, they create firm, youthful skin.
Now, there are a number of reasons skin can sag or lose its structure. Bodily changes are the most common reason your skin’s structure may shift. If you lose weight quickly, your skin will not have enough time to contract slowly along with the area of your body that is losing fat. Skin stretching then quickly contracting is also very common in the abdomen for pregnant women, where their abdominal skin is subject to significant stretching as their pregnancy progresses.
The second reason skin laxity forms is from a breakdown in collagen and elastin. As you age, your body produces less and less of these proteins, making your skin more susceptible to the forces of gravity.
A final cause of skin laxity is excess sun exposure. Too much time in the sun can cause a breakdown in skin cells and those all-important collagen and elastin proteins. Just like sun exposure causes wrinkles, it can also create sagging skin.
Evolve improves skin laxity and muscle tone
Evolve Tite uses radio frequency (RF) energy to deliver targeted heat, triggering your body to naturally produce more collagen and elastin,in turn tightening the skin.
This skin tightening treatment can treat loose skin on the tummy after pregnancy or weight loss, loose skin on the upper arms, and other troublesome spots.
Evolve Tone can add definition and enhance your natural physique by increasing muscle strength and tone. This modality uses electromagnetic technology to trigger muscle contractions. These contractions literally work your muscles, helping to tone and strengthen them—all in a non-invasive, easy treatment.

Note: Evolve is not a weight loss treatment; it is a body contouring treatment.
The process of our Evolve skin tightening treatment in Cincinnati
Before your treatment, we’ll meet with you for a consultation, where a body contouring specialist evaluates areas of concern to determine if Evolve is the best treatment for you.
We will also recommend the number of treatment sessions you’ll need to achieve your goals; most patients receive between 6 and 12 treatments. After your consultation and before your first Evolve treatment, we will weigh and measure you, then take before photos of the area(s) treated to track progress.
Since every patient is different, we will start by applying the appropriate applicators to the treatment areas. Once you’re settled in and comfortable, we’ll start the treatment.
You’ll relax for the next 30 to 60 minutes as the device delivers the predetermined treatment. If needed, there is a convenient Patient Call button to pause the treatment. Our team will monitor your progress and adjust the settings as necessary to guarantee you have the full benefits of Evolve and a great experience.
The sensation you’ll feel depends on if you’re receiving the Tite or Tone treatment. For Tite, patients describe a warming sensation that is not painful. For Tone, you will feel the muscle contracting sensation—we can adjust the treatment as needed to ensure your comfort.
One of the best parts of Evolve is that there is no recovery period after! Typically, patients see results within 6 to 12 weekly treatment sessions.
