Evolve in Guelph

The Evolve body contouring system by InMode offers the innovative and most comprehensive body contouring, muscle building and skin tightening technology to address a list of issues.

Derma Skin Institute is proud to introduce the complete Evolve system with Evolve Tite, Evolve Trim, and Evolve Tone non-surgical treatments to tighten and smooth the skin while toning the muscles.

The only question is, do you desire any or all of the following…

  • Tighter, firmer skin?
  • Less excess fat?
  • More toned muscles?
  • A reduction of cellulite?
  • Enhanced body contours?

Evolve is an innovative non-surgical and non-invasive body contouring solution that uses safe and clinical proven radiofrequency and electromagnetic energy to target all of the key components of body contouring in an all-in-one solution:  skin tightening, permanent localized fat destruction and muscle building!  Evolve is designed to help men and women achieve a sleeker, stronger and slimmer body.

Loose, sagging skin and stubborn pockets of fat that are not responding to an active lifestyle and a proper diet can be extremely demoralizing.

The Evolve maximizes non-surgical results by individually targeting all tissues involved in hard to tone areas and provides the highest quality of body contouring available.

With the Evolve, for the first time, we can time target and customize your needs among the big three of body contouring concerns – loose skin, stubborn pockets of fat and MUSCLE!

With the Evolve we can customize your treatment protocol based on your unique needs – be it one or all three of the issues. Best of all, we can do it hands-free, so you can sit back and let the machine exercise, tighten and slim (TONE, TITE and TRIM) while you catch up on your emails or watch Netflix.

Each of these systems comes with applicators designed with built-in thermal sensors that monitor the skin surface temperature in real time. This helps the device reach an optimal thermal profile to deliver outstanding results, all the while ensuring patient safety and comfort.

  • Evolve Tite: to tighten loose skin
  • Evolve Trim: to kill localized collections of fat
  • Evolve Tone: to build and tone underlying muscle.

Building up and toning underlying muscle can be a challenge even with the best diet and trainers. Add in lack of time, a busy schedule and the lack of being in your 20s, you may find that achieving your desired results may be difficult. The following areas can be treated with EVOLVE

  • Abdomen / Belly
  • Buttock
  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Thighs
  • Love handles.

Whether it is your belly, buttock, arms, legs, thighs, love handles or elsewhere, Evolve body contouring is a quick and easy non-surgical alternative that works to reshape areas of concern – muscle, fat and loose skin.

What can I expect during my treatment

Prior to treatment you will be assessed by one of our board certified dermatologists to come up with a treatment plan. During the treatment, one of our highly trained staff will position the Evolve and its adapters to the treatment area. We will position you in our reclining treatment chair for the duration of the procedure which may take 15-30 minutes per session / per area. You will feel a warm pulsating sensation (TITE and TRIM) as well as your muscles contracting during the treatment (TONE).

The best way to find out if you would benefit from any of the Evolve treatments, be it Tite, Tone or Trim, the best fist step would be to meet with our board-certified cosmetic dermatologist. We will meet with you during the consultation and go over what to expect.

Generally, these are good guidelines to follow

  • if you can pinch it – Evolve TRIM can shrink it
  • if you cant cover your index finger with your loose skin – Evolve TITE can tighten it
  • If you can see some muscle poking through – Evolve TONE will define your muscles more

Although Evolve ™ treatments are the latest tech in helping patients build muscle, remove fat and tighten their skin, they are by no means a replacement for exercise and a proper diet. Evolve Treatments are best for individuals who are reaching a plateau despite eating right and exercising and continue to struggle with residual pockets of body fat, or want to see more muscle definition or diminish the appearance of loose skin – all without wanting to undergo surgery.

There is no after care and you can return to your regular activities right after the procedure. You may find that you need to go to the bathroom after the treatment – on account of fat being released into your system.

It is important to continue with the prescribed sessions at the regular recommended intervals. It is also important to continue with the proper diet and exercise regiments to compliment your treatment.

It is also important to do regular maintenance treatments once you have completed your initial treatment. Just like with exercise, once you are in shape it is important to continue to do so in order to maintain the results. Treating with Evolve is no different .

Cost will vary depending on your unique needs. Maintenance packages start at $250 / session.

Our board-certified dermatologist will meet with you and discuss the optimal combination, timing and maintenance to give you the best results. In addition to Evolve we may suggest other treatments that can work synergistically to improve the overall outcome.

Evolve TITE: Radiofrequency microneedling with Mopheus8 or RF pixel can help enhance the skin tightening and collagen building.

Evolve TRIM: Lipo-dissolve injections may be recommended to enhance the effect or decrease the number of sessions needed. Continuing to Eat right and stay well hydrated will help enhance the effect of the treatment. It may be of benefit to discuss a plan with a dietitian; we are happy to help you connect with one. Oral medication may also be of benefit if you have a body mass index of >27.

Evolve TONE: Maintaining an exercise routine is extremely helpful. It may be of benefit to consider adding a personal trainer. We can make recommendations


As a non-surgical and non-invasive energy-assisted approach to fat removal, muscle tightening, and muscle building Evolve ™ is not a quick fix.  New changes start to become more apparent at four to six weeks. And full results usually take about two or three months. Once results are achieved, like with any regimen it is best to continue treatments at reduced intervals. Your doctor will discuss the best maintenance treatment.

Evolve™ utilizes advanced applications of radiofrequency energy which surpasses comparable systems that also use radio waves to destroy fat cells. A major reason is that Evolve has precise temperature control to ensure maximal energy and efficacy while decreasing the chance of pain and side effects. Furthermore the technology of Evolve has overcome a major limitation of many body contouring technologies using RF waves do not have sufficient power to achieve the proper depth of penetration to produce optimal results.

Another popular non-surgical way to reduce / eliminate fat is to use cold temperatures to destroy fat. The most common of these is Coolsculpt.  However, a major disadvantage to this approach is a high risk of hyperplasia (i.e. cell proliferation) at the treatment site as well as step / bite deformities. These issues result in lumps which must then be removed surgically or treated with another technology or injections. The use of radiofrequency (RF) is not known to have this issue.

With regards to actual fat removal, clinical studies suggest that Evolve™ is able to outperform Coolsculpting and Sculpsure by removing more fat per treatment session.

First, the use of cryolipolysis / cold temperatures to destroy fat cells makes Coolsculpting less versatile compared to radiofrequency since it can only be used on very large areas, as opposed to more nuanced regions such as the neck, arms, and inner thighs.

Second, while both Coolsculpting and Sculpsure have demonstrated the ability to reduce fat by about 22-24%.  a recent study showed that radiofrequency treatment of fat resulted in the average fat thickness reduction of 39.6%.  Although this study of 20 patients is relatively small, this result, in terms of being able to remove more fat than Sculpsure and Coolsculpting, is nonetheless worth noting.

Non-invasive technology designed to remove fat is really not meant for weight loss, or again, as discussed above, as a substitute for a healthy lifestyle with regular exercise and a proper diet. It is also important to see your doctor to ensure you don’t have a medical condition like diabetes or thyroid disease that is inhibiting your progress.

Ideal patients should be within 10-20 lbs of their ideal weight and have their body in a state of weight loss. The goal should be to achieve a slimmer and stronger body contour by getting rid of excess fat and building muscle which cannot be resolved using diet and exercise alone. Although Evolve ™ is designed to tighten loose skin, candidates should also still have sufficient skin elasticity.

Surgical Liposuction and or surgical intervention may be a better choice for removing larger fat deposits and if you have skin that is hanging. In addition if you are not ready for surgical intervention or if you are in between, you may be a candidate for adding non-surgical liposuction with Lipo-dissolve.

Finally, since Evolve ™ uses energy to accomplish its objectives (reducing fat, tightening skin and toning muscles), it is important to remember that the flow of this energy depends on the patients own tissue and their density and hydration status. As the tissues differ between people (and even in the same person between treatments) effects will differ and vary. Having a good nights sleep as well as having a good level of hydration (2 L of fluid taken at least 2 hrs before treatment) will help. If you are not experiencing the changes they hoped for, it may be time to re-consider liposuction or other surgical and invasive procedures to remove the unwanted fat.
