Exilis offers a revolutionary non-invasive form of treatment for the reshaping of targeted fat deposits and for the reduction of wrinkles. The Exilis treatment is safe for patients of all ages who are showing signs of aging, are overweight or want to improve those problem areas that exercise and diet have plateaued. It’s safe, FDA-cleared and effective. Results look natural and can be seen as early as three weeks following treatment, with the most dramatic results after one to three months. The only thing required to prepare your body for treatments is proper hydration. You will be asked to drink plenty of water the day before, the day of and the day after treatment. Our office recommends drinking half your body weight in ounces. This will help rid your body of excess fluid and toxins and aid in metabolic processes.
Exilis, based on breakthrough technology, safely and effectively delivers thermal energy below the surface of skin, where connective tissue is naturally produced. In response to this radiofrequency energy, connective tissue production is promoted, leading to the rejuvenation of the skin and a decrease in drooping jowls, sagging skin, and uneven skin tone. Exilis is predictable and consistent in its results and delivers younger, more vibrant skin after just one non-invasive treatment.
Exilis is a new type of radiofrequency device that reduces facial wrinkles and unwanted pockets of body fat. It’s a great non-invasive alternative to surgical liposuction. Its results aren’t as dramatic as liposuction, but it’s a much safer and easier procedure for people who want to rejuvenate and re-contour their bodies.
- Sagging skin
- Loose skin
- Localized fat cells
Although Exilis was first used to smooth out wrinkles around the eyes, doctors soon found it successfully tightens skin on other areas of the face and on the body as well.
Main effects of Exilis:
The heat from the sound waves causes the dermis (the skin’s innermost layer) to contract. It also stimulates the formation of new connective tissue. Connective tissue is a protein that helps keep skin taut and healthy. In addition, the heat generated by the Exilis technology—coupled with the vibrations of the device’s oscillating mechanical waves—liquefies and releases fat from the skin’s fat cells, thus shrinking and tightening up the treated area even more.
Areas of treatment:
The device is now often used to treat and re-contour the neck, back, arms, abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and ankles—just about anywhere you have loose skin and unwanted pockets of fat. Almost anyone with loose skin or with mild to moderate deposits of fat is a good candidate for Exilis treatments. The procedure is safe for all skin types. Exilis is not recommended, however, for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, for individuals with an active skin disease on the area intended for treatment, or for people with a heart pacemaker or other implanted medical device.
What is the treatment like?
Exilis treatments require no anesthetic. The procedure is pain-free*. During the procedure, you’ll feel only a slight warming sensation as the device is guided over the area being treated. The entire session will last about 20 or 30 minutes, perhaps longer if a larger area is being targeted. Afterward, your skin will appear slightly reddish for about 30 minutes or so.
How Many Treatments are Needed?
Some individuals get good results after only a couple of treatments, but for best results, most people need 4 to 6 treatment sessions, spaced 1 to 2 weeks apart. Results last for about 6 months*. To keep the treated area of the skin taut and smooth, maintenance sessions (usually 1 every 4 months on the face and 1 a month for the body) are recommended.
All our photographs of before and after treatment results are examples only, and do not constitute an implied or any other kind of guarantee of the result of treatment procedures. Results can vary significantly between our clients. All our treatment results are subject to the individualizes of each client.
Furthermore, all treatment procedures carry potential risks and complications which are described in detail in our treatment consent forms. These may include but are not limited to, bleeding, infection, asymmetry, dissatisfaction with the result and the expense of further treatments to manage a complication (patient forms). If you have any questions regarding these potential risks and complications. Please discuss them with our doctors or aesthetic therapist prior to treatments.
Before undergoing a treatment, please be sure that you understand that YOUR actual results will likely VARY SIGNIFICANTLY from other patient’s results, including their BEFORE & AFTER photos.
This is quite important to understand — that EVEN when you feel that you look very similar to another client in their BEFORE images, your results will likely vary significantly — because you are a unique person. Every individual has NOT only a completely unique physique but also uniquely individualistic body healing capacities, scarring tendencies and recovery processes — some of which are unpredictable even in very-healthy patients who rest adequately and do ALL the other right things before and after their procedure.
Please be noted, our doctors and aesthetic therapists offer you our highest expertise in our aesthetic procedures.
