Body and Face Shaping Treatments: 5 Things You Need to Know
You may feel unhappy with the way certain areas of your body change as you age, whether it’s skin sagging along your jawline or extra cellulite on your thighs. But if you think you need surgery to solve these problems, think again. Body and face shaping treatments offer a simple but effective way to address numerous aesthetic concerns without invasive work.
InMode is one of the leading providers of innovative shaping solutions, with a range of state-of-the-art platforms based on radio frequency (RF) technology. Some of the biggest celebrities in the world have tried InMode treatments, and Astra Medicare brings two of the brand’s most well-known options to Brampton: Evoke and Evolve.
How do these treatments work and what benefits do they offer? Read on to discover five facts you need to know about InMode’s cosmetic treatments.
You Can Shape Your Body and Face Without Surgery
One of the major benefits of Evoke and Evolve is that they offer a surgery-free way to enhance your appearance.
Evoke is a hands-free remodeling platform designed to target multiple areas of the face. It can cultivate a more youthful look by applying RF energy to your jawline, neck, and cheeks — all of which start to sag and lose definition with age.
This technology remodels both the dermis and subdermal tissue, creating a stronger shape with no needles and no scalpels. If you’ve considered cosmetic procedures before but are nervous about the prospect of surgery or injections, these treatments are an effective alternative. Our technicians can use Evoke to deliver customizable treatments that align with your cosmetic goals.
And what about Evolve? This is based on the same RF technology and targets several parts of the body at the same time. Treatments are customized after a consultation with one of our technicians. Take the time to discuss your needs with our team honestly, and we’ll answer your questions to ensure you understand what’s involved.
You Don’t Need Downtime for Recovery
Downtime can be a problem after cosmetic surgery. Depending on the extent of the procedure, you may require days or weeks away from your usual routine. That can mean missing out on work or leisure activities while your body recovers.
Fortunately, there’s no downtime involved with Evoke and Evolve treatments. Our team will undertake the process and you’ll be free to get on with the rest of your day. As a result, body and face shaping is easier to fit into even the most packed schedule. There’s no reason to take time off work or avoid those activities that mean so much to you.
The non-surgical nature of Evoke and Evolve shaping solutions makes them a valuable option for anyone who wants to increase definition in one or more areas. It also combats common signs of aging, including wrinkles and cellulite.
We’ll discuss the procedures in detail during your consultation, and make sure you feel comfortable with the entire process from start to finish.
You Can Reshape Multiple Areas of Your Body At the Same Time
The Evolve body shaping platform is designed to treat various areas with the same transformative results typically reserved for invasive surgical procedures. You may find this option more appealing than traditional cosmetic treatments, especially if you dislike the idea of having general anaesthetic or undergoing reshaping with scalpels and liposuction.
Evolve can be used to reshape the following parts of the body:
Fatty deposits in these areas can be frustrating — and stubborn. You may spend hours on the treadmill or lifting weights as you strive to burn them away. But Evolve makes it simpler than ever to streamline and enhance those challenging areas without surgery. It can trigger significant changes in skin, muscle tone, and adipose tissue with lasting results.
InMode Shaping Works With All Skin Types
The InMode body and face shaping treatments available at Astra Medicare are safe and effective for all skin types and genders. That means Evoke and Evolve may be suitable for more patients than other, more complex procedures.
You Can Tighten, Trim, and Tone for Comprehensive Body Shaping
Evolve shapes the body with the Tite, Trim, and Tone approaches:
Evolve Tite remodels skin and enhances its appearance with RF energy. It incorporates several applicators (all hands-free) to administer balanced heating to both the skin and the layer of tissue beneath.
This allows for effective remodeling that caters to different body shapes and sculpting preferences. For example, you may want to focus on small but visible pockets of fat at your sides that refuse to disappear regardless of your fitness regimen. Evolve Tite can do that for you.
Evolve Trim heats subcutaneous fat at its deepest levels with focused thermal energy. It can address cellulite around the thighs and buttocks that may be difficult to remove otherwise.
Toning muscle anywhere on the body can be a long, arduous process. You might spend months lifting weights or doing exercises to increase definition and build a more toned physique. But that’s not viable for many people who work long hours and have various responsibilities demanding their attention.
However, Evolve Tone can encourage muscles to become stronger and more defined over time. The applicators emit electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) to cause muscular contraction involuntarily. You may be able to improve your body’s appearance in an easier, more straightforward way with Evolve Tone.

Skin Tightening Treatments: Everything You Need to Know
Have you noticed your skin becoming thinner, less smooth, and less firm as you age?
You’re not alone: it’s a natural part of growing older and is nothing to worry about. These changes are all due to a decrease in the body’s collagen production, an essential protein responsible for building and maintaining healthy skin, muscles, hair, ligaments, and tendons.
Your body produces less and less collagen as you mature — according to the Scientific American, the human body creates around 1% less collagen per year after the age of 20. That means your skin will become increasingly saggy over the years. While skin tends to sag in several areas, it’s most common around the cheeks, jaws, upper arms, and neck. And visible sagging in these parts of the body can be frustrating.
Fortunately, skin tightening is an effective treatment designed to reduce sagging skin and associated signs of aging. In this post, we’ll explore everything you need to know about this process, including how it works, what you can expect, and the cost.
What is Skin Tightening?
Skin tightening treatments are designed to create firmer skin in any area targeted, such as the face or the arms. You may benefit from a procedure if your skin is beginning to sag naturally over time, particularly as you enter middle age.
Astra Medicare uses the GentleMax Pro system to tighten skin. This cutting-edge technology is one of the most popular, most respected options on the market. It’s designed to tighten skin in one or more parts of the body, based on your unique requirements.
The GentleMax Pro system is a safe, effective solution for sagging skin in the following areas:
We understand that you may feel nervous about trying a laser treatment for the first time, especially on skin in a visible area like the jawline. It’s vital that you feel relaxed and confident from the moment you agree to the procedure.
That’s why you’ll undergo a comprehensive consultation with one of our specialists before your treatment. This is crucial to help us understand what you want to achieve, and whether or not this is a suitable option for you. We’ll answer your questions and offer any advice necessary to help you make an informed decision.
How Long Does Each Skin Tightening Session Last?
Your treatment will take approximately 45 minutes, but the length may differ depending on the number of areas targeted. You may need longer or shorter sessions to accommodate your requirements.
Patients with particularly noticeable sagging skin in one or more places will need more extensive treatment than others. On average, patients tend to require three to five treatment sessions. Each of these will take place between three and four weeks apart.
How Does Skin Tightening Work?
The GentleMax Pro system emits single-wavelength energy and applies controlled heat to target areas. This stimulates collagen production, promotes regeneration and replacement of skin cells that have become damaged, and encourages the skin to become tighter. As a result, your skin will start to look smoother, healthier, and younger.
This is generally a pain-free treatment, though you may experience brief, mild discomfort as the laser begins to work. You’ll learn more about this, and the entire process, during your consultation.
Results typically last for a number of months, between four and six on average. During this period, new collagen will be produced to help the skin remain firm and reduce sagging. However, results can vary from patient to patient (as with all cosmetic treatments).
What Can You Expect After Your Skin Tightening Treatment?
Astra Medicare has conducted in-depth clinic studies into our skin tightening procedures. We’ve discovered that patients can expect to see:
Patients have reported immediate improvements in their skin’s texture and overall look, and these continue to occur over the following weeks.
If you’re concerned about the potential downtime required while you recover from your procedure, don’t be! Most patients need no downtime and can continue with their usual routine after treatment. It’s possible that mild swelling or inflammation will show in targeted areas within the first two days, but that shouldn’t affect your commitments.
Our specialists will give you further information on your recovery before and after your skin tightening sessions. If you intend to try additional cosmetic procedures in the near future, let us know and we’ll advise you on how to do so safely. It may be best to wait a while before you undergo another treatment.
What Makes Me a Good Candidate for Skin Tightening Treatment?
GentleMax Pro laser procedures are popular with people who want to reduce the visibility of aging. Typically, their goal is to address common issues like sagging skin and wrinkles on the face, neck, and chest. This treatment can achieve significant aesthetic improvements and create more youthful skin.
However, it’s crucial to maintain realistic expectations and to understand that there may be side effects of the treatment. We’ll cover both areas in detail during your consultation to determine if you’re a good candidate. Our experts may recommend alternative options that could also help you reach your goals.
How Much Does Skin Tightening Cost?
The price of skin tightening depends on the number of areas to be treated and the sessions required. We’ll assess your needs and provide you with an accurate quote as part of your consultation. You may also choose to undergo additional treatments in our extensive portfolio to enhance your appearance in other ways.
