Jeans a little snug? That office shirt a little on the tight side? Well after a summer of over indulging, I ticked both those boxes and it was time to take action.
Happily thanks to modern science, there is now a way for men to reduce fat, tighten our skin and tone our muscles…cue EvolveX at The Lanesborough!
This ultra high tech treatment harnesses the power of an innovative partnership of Radiofrequency energy (RF) for deep heating of tissue, High Voltage Pulse (HVP) for fat bursting or reduction and electrical muscle stimulation (EMS)
It promises results that are not achievable during workouts alone, and within three treatments. Think of it as a targeted, layered, results driven body buste, and my area of choice was the stomach…so how did it work for me?
Well firstly the process was totally pain-free and comfortable, and first up was the electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) which was the equivalent of an intense workout for my abdominals, and my therapist was invaluable in helping my mind over matter as the dial was cranked up!
Next she used a hands-free applicator to harness the power of RF energy to penetrate my skin and heat its deeper layers. My body temperature was constantly monitored to make sure that I had reached the ideal temperature to trigger collagen stimulation and I felt a warming sensation.
After the treatment there was a little warmth and redness which soon subsided, and I also felt a bit sore as if I had just done a workout. There was no downtime or aftercare required, so I was free to head back to work as normal.
In the days and weeks that followed, my skin was trimmer, tighter and more toned, and yes my clothes felt a little looser too! EvolveX can also work on the arms, thighs and back fat. Basically wherever there is a muscle to stimulate, EvolveX can treat it.
I’d say run, not walk to this treatment, just remember that it is not a replacement for diet and exercise but slotted it into a healthier lifestyle, as I did, and you will be sure to reap the rewards.
Price: £650 for 60 minutes
Verdict: ‘unparalleled results for the body with zero downtime’
