Get Tighter Skin With Non-Invasive Exilis
What is Exilis Skin Tightening?
Exilis is a Med Spa procedure which uses focused radio-frequency energy to destroy fat cells, reduce fat volume, and tighten skin in various areas of the body. The process uses a handpiece to deliver radio waves through the skin to smaller deposits of fat. The radio waves will heat the deeper layers of the skin and fat tissue. While this does cause the destruction of some fat cells, its primary function is to stimulate the dermal collagen, tightening the skin and removing laxity. It is similar to Vanquish and made by the same company, BTL.
Where can Exilis be used?
Because it employs a handpiece, Exilis is useful on much smaller areas of the body. Common areas treated are the abdomen, flanks, upper and lower back, arms, thighs, and knees. Exilis also tightens loose skin on the body while reducing fat.
Is there any Pain?
Exilis is appropriate for patients looking to reduce fat volume from small areas of the body that exercise and diet have not adequately addressed. The treatment is very effective for improvement of mild skin laxity in the back of the arms, above the knees, and across the abdomen. Since Exilis reduces fat and tightens skin, those looking to improve the appearance of cellulite may greatly benefit. Exilis is safe and effective for patients of all ages who are showing signs of aging and skin laxity.
How it works
During an Exilis body contouring treatment, precisely controlled radio frequency energy is used to heat the deeper layers of the skin and fat tissue. With this advanced technology, the energy is controlled by the practitioner to effectively destroy fat cells at very particular depths. Like the skin, fat tissue can have many layers and for effective treatment and lasting results it’s important to have the ability to treat the deepest and most superficial layers of fat tissue. This heat causes fat cells to break apart and contracts the skin tissue, stimulating new collagen production in the process and destroying unwanted fat cells. Afterward, your body naturally metabolizes the destroyed fat cell content and patients may resume their normal activities right away. We recommend 4-6 treatments at our Elmhurst office, spaced out over 1 to 2-week intervals. Consistency is key to successful outcomes.
Body contouring and skin tightening results may be noticed after just 1 to 2 treatments, but in most cases, 4-6 treatments are needed for optimal results. That lag is due to the body building new collagen. Unlike Vanquish, which permanently eliminates fat cells, Exilis skin tightening results last for around two years. Eventually, the collagen again begins to wane, and your skin will again show more laxity. However, another Exilis treatment series will tighten things back up
