RF Technology has been shown to be highly effective at tightening skin as well as decreasing fat
SAN ANTONIO, Texas (PRWEB) June 19, 2020
Dr. Suresh Koneru is pleased to be the first Plastic Surgeon in San Antonio to offer the latest in non-surgical face contouring and tightening technology. The FDA recently approved this first hands-free Radio Frequency (RF) device to lift sagging jowls and fix double chins called EVOKE. This technology is an evolution of the FaceTite and NeckTite that Dr. Koneru first brought to San Antonio in 2018.
The new EVOKE device consists of two different treatment options. The first treats the loose skin and fat under the chin, helping to fix double chins and turkey necks without incisions, needles, or anesthetics. The second option treats the skin of the lower face, helping eliminate jowls, marionette lines, and give a well-defined jawline. All of this can be done in the comfort of Dr. Koneru's office during a 30-45 minute procedure performed weekly.
It is common for those over 40 years old to start seeing sagging of jowls and a loss of jawline definition. Traditionally, the only option for these patients was a surgical facelift. Recently, new technologies have been developed that allow these problems to be corrected without the need for surgery. RF technology has been shown to be highly effective at tightening skin as well as decreasing fat, but has required small incisions and local anesthetic. New advances have enabled delivering this energy through the skin so that incisions and anesthetics are not required.
In this time of frequent Selfies, FaceTime, and Zoom conferences, people are more concerned with the fullness under their chin (double chin) as well as extra skin of the area (turkey neck). Dr. Koneru says that patients will often tell him that they are starting to look like their mothers or fathers and need to have something done to look like themselves again. In early 2011, Advanced Concepts in Plastic Surgery was one of the first centers in the country to begin treating these problems with non-surgical options like CoolSculpting. As effective technologies like Ulthera and Kybella emerged, these were also included in the armamentarium. Now EVOKE technology combines the benefits of many of these technologies in one device.
Dr. Koneru is constantly researching new advances in Plastic Surgery and chooses to work with premier providers – those who provide the very best products and services, hold the highest standards, and offer both industry and customer support. He is always on the cutting edge of Plastic Surgery and is known as a pioneer in surgical and non-surgical Plastic Surgery treatments.
Dr. Suresh Koneru treats plastic surgery patients in San Antonio, Austin, Corpus Christi, Laredo, and other cities in Central and South Texas. He offers a variety of surgical and non-surgical options for the treatment of jowls, marionette lines, double chins, and turkey necks.
