More Intensive Skin Tightening
Exilis Elite RF Therapy
If you’re tired of looking at that loose skin around your eyes or under your chin , the Exilis Elite is amazing new technology that can non-invasively tighten those areas. The Exilis Elite is an FDA approved, non-surgical device that can help reduce fat in the face, neck or body, tighten the skin and improve the skin quality without downtime. Using radio frequency energy, the Exilis Elite heats the deeper layers of the skin causing fat cells to rupture and at the same time causing the skin to contract by stimulating new collagen and elastin formation. Areas best treated on the face include the skin around the eyes, under the jawline or lower on the neck. On the body, we’ve seen great success on the thighs, love handles, “bra fat”, knees, upper arms and stomach.
Exilis is an exciting new technology that uses radio frequency (RF) energy for body and face contouring and skin tightening. It is a non-surgical office procedure that reduces fat and firms skin in the face and body. The Exilis Elite delivers twice the energy of the original Exilis device and offers superior results in a shorter amount of time.
During an Exilis treatment, precisely controlled radio frequency energy is used to heat the deeper layers of the skin. This heat causes fat cells to shrink and rupture, and contracts the skin tissue, stimulating new collagen and elastin production in the process.
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, and have not responded to other treatment options. Exilis treatment offers cosmetic improvement without surgery.
As the Exilis device is guided over the area to be treated, you will feel a deep heating sensation. Exilis radio frequency energy is delivered to the deeper layers of the skin. The underside of the applicator provides cooling to the skin’s surface, keeping you more comfortable during the treatment.
Typically, anywhere from 15 to 45 minutes, depending on the area being treated.
There is no downtime with this procedure. There may be temporary pinkness or redness in the skin for about 20-30 minutes that quickly subsides. Since there is no downtime or special care required once you leave the office, you can carry on with the rest of your day’s activities immediately following treatment.
Yes, Exilis is an FDA cleared device for skin tightening. There are controls built in to the device to ensure that it does not overheat the skin.
You may start to see some skin tightening and fat reduction results after just 1 to 2 Exilis Elite treatment sessions. Treatments will be spaced out over 1 to 2 week intervals. On the face, skin tightening results can be very impressive but does vary from person to person. Fine body sculpting is another area where the Exilis Elite shines.
Exilis will not deliver the same results as a surgical facelift or neck-lift. It is a great non-surgical alternative for those who wish to tighten the skin, and remove isolated areas of fat from most areas of the body.
Due to the unique design of Exilis, the neck, face, body, arms and legs, back fat and knees are all treated successfully.
Exilis is a relatively new device, but current studies show that those who have had treatment over 3 years ago have maintained their results. Typically, once fat cells have been destroyed they do not come back.
