Body Contouring • Wrinkle Reduction • Skin Tightening • Anti-Aging
As we age, we lose collagen within the skin and as a result, skin becomes looser over the face, jawline, neck, arms, abdomen, flanks and thighs. Tightening this skin used to require painful treatments with significant downtime for healing.
Exilis is a FDA approved device offering a non-surgical solution using radio frequency (RF) energy for skin tightening. Look years younger with Exilis™, targeting and tightening areas on your face including under-eye, jowls, face wrinkles and
neck. At the same time Exilis™ stimulates and strengthens the collagen network which improves skin laxity and texture.
Exilis is also an FDA approved device offering a non-surgical solution using radio frequency (RF) energy for fat reduction anywhere on the body. The procedure uses safe radio waves heating your skin targeting the fat cells. Area’s that can be treated include thighs, back, abdomen, buttocks, and arms.
You’ve probably heard about freezing your fat off with Coolsculpting™ by Zeltiq™, but you may not have heard of heating fat and tightening your skin with Exilis™ technology. Exilis’ monopolar radiofrequency and advanced cooling system allows for deep penetration within the fat cells without the risk of burning your skin. This innovative technology is non-invasive and safe for all skin types. Patients will see improvement after just one treatment session, but we usually suggest a package of four treatments spaced a couple of weeks apart to produce maximum results.
While there is no downtime associated with Exilis treatment, it is recommended that patients maintain, if not increase, their physical activity following each session. By engaging in exercise and continuing to remain hydrated after Exilis, skin tightening patients ensure that their metabolic exchange remains high: speeding the reduction of fat volume and skin laxity.
How Does Exilis Work?
Patients are often skeptical of non-invasive skin treatments, which is why it’s important for us to explain the science behind it. It is important to note that Exilis is FDA cleared for improving skin laxity and the appearance of wrinkles, and a majority of Exilis patients also report a reduction in fat volume. Fat deposits form due to metabolically inactive cells. The heat emitted by the Exilis™ device causes the targeted fat cells to breakdown (a process called lipolysis) and disperse. The thermal energy also boosts the body’s natural ability to produce collagen; not only will your fat cell volume decrease, but
your skin will tighten and become younger-looking.
Exilis Skin Tightening and Body Contouring FAQs
What parts of the body can be treated with Exilis?
Exilis’ built-in cooling device makes it safe for reducing lax skin and excess fat anywhere on the body, including the face. Areas that can be treated include
the face and eyes, neck, jowls, abdomen, arms, thighs, buttocks, love handles, and fat rolls on the back.
How many treatments will I need? How long do the results last?
The recommended course of treatment is generally 4 to 6 sessions to achieve the best effect. Each treatment is a quick 30- to 45-minute visit, scheduled 7–14 days apart, and there is no downtime following the procedure. You can have additional treatments if desired. Patients show persistent results at least six months after the Exilis treatment.
Does Exilis treatment hurt and when will I see results?
No, Exilis doesn’t hurt. Patients report a warm sensation, but the cooling device prevents most discomfort and makes Exilis safe for all skin types. Exilis results are long lasting and though you may see immediate results, maximum results are experienced incrementally over 3 to 6 months after the last treatment.
Some pinkness on the treated area may last for about 15-30 minutes. Patients should increase water intake on the day of treatment and the day after, and should engage in light exercise such as walking to enhance cosmetic results. There have been no significant side effects reported with Exilis treatment.
Exilis is recommended for any patient between the ages of 25 and 70+ who desires cosmetic improvement, particularly those areas that show the signs of aging, unhealthy life style and have not responded to other treatment options.
Exilis treatment offers cosmetic improvement without surgery.
How much does Exilis treatment cost?
Like other body contouring procedures, the cost of Exilis depends on the patient’s specific needs. A patient who only desires facial rejuvenation with Exilis will pay less than a patient who wants to treat their tummy, flanks, and legs because the treatment area is smaller. A consultation is the best way for us to give patients an accurate price estimate.
