Facial Contouring Q&A
What is facial contouring?
Facial contouring is an aesthetic procedure conducted on an outpatient basis that helps you achieve a more youthful appearance without anesthesia, surgical scars, or an extended recovery period. It’s a noninvasive alternative to a facelift.
At Image Aesthetic Dentistry, the team offers facial contouring with Evoke. Evoke is an all-in-one, pain-free facial contouring device that provides impressive, long-lasting results. Treatment is entirely noninvasive and delivers structural reorganization of the soft tissues in your face and neck.
What areas of the body can facial contouring treat?

Following an in-office consultation and a discussion of your goals, the team can develop a custom treatment plan that aligns with your needs.
What does facial contouring involve?
Facial contouring provides an alternative to traditional facelifts. It uses clinically proven radiofrequency (RF) technology to heat up the subdermal layers beneath your skin. By heating these layers, it’s possible to remodel your soft tissue, providing a more defined neck and jawline.
The treatment is based on proprietary ACE (Acquire, Control, and Extend) technology. ACE sends energy deep beneath your skin to ensure each layer of tissue receives the exact same level of heat. That maximizes your results and provides consistent outcomes.
During treatment, your provider runs a handheld, wand-like device across the surface of your skin. The device emits targeted RF energy following a set of pre-established treatment parameters. The heat changes the cellular structures underneath your skin, eliminating wrinkles, fine lines, sagging, and other imperfections.
Is facial contouring painful?
No. Facial contouring isn’t uncomfortable or painful. During treatment, you’ll feel a mild warming sensation, similar to what you might feel while getting a facial. If at any point you need to take a break, press the “Patient Call Button.” That feature allows you to pause treatment, whereupon your provider can adjust the settings.
During treatment, you can read a book, surf the internet, or watch television. Each session only takes 30-45 minutes, so you can even stop by on your lunch break.
How many facial contouring treatments will I need?
The number of facial contouring treatments you’ll need depends on the current state of your skin and your goals for treatment. Following an in-office exam and consultation, your provider develops a treatment plan that aligns with your needs. Typically, treatment includes a series of at least three appointments spaced several weeks apart.
