Exilis is a new non-invasive procedure that uses radio frequency (RF) to help tighten and tone sagging skin and also helps reduce unwanted fat with no downtime. The radio frequency energy allows Exilis to safely heat the deeper tissues and ramp up the metabolic activity of the fat cells, causing them to liquefy. The fat is absorbed by the lymphatic system for safe removal and processed out by your kidneys within days.
Exilis also remodels collagen. Because collagen lives deep in the dermis of the skin, it is quite difficult to reach. The cutting edge technology in Exilis can reach these fibers and transform the structure of collagen.
Commonly treated areas are the lower face, jowls, neck, arms, abdomen, buttocks and thighs. Exilis requires no numbing or anesthesia and is often described by patients, “Like a warm massage”.
What is the recovery time for an Exilis treatment?
There is no downtime with an Exilis treatment, you can resume your normal everyday activities immediately. Side effects include a brief period of redness and possible minor swelling.
Is an Exilis treatment painful?
There is no pain associated with an Exilis treatment. You will only feel a sensation of heat which is often described by patients like a warm massage. There is no need for numbing or anesthesia with an Exilis treatment.
What results can I expect from an Exilis treatment?
The RF waves from Exilis will diminish wrinkles and tighten skin. These waves will also deplete fat from excess fat cells, thereby enhancing the true contours of the body.
When will I see the results of an Exilis treatment?
You may see results during the course of your treatments; however most of your improvement is seen in the 3 months following your last treatment.
Are there any special instructions after an Exilis treatment?
Drink plenty of water before and after. You may resume light to moderate exercise.
How much does an Exilis treatment cost?
Each Exilis treatment costs $150. We advise 4 to 5 treatments to achieve the best results, and each treatment is scheduled 7 to 10 days apart. Ask us for current specials!
Why are the treatments spaced apart?
After the age of 20 your body loses collagen at a rate of 1% each year. Thus the cells that produce collagen lie dormant. The Exilis treatments are spaced 7-10 days apart to stimulate those dormant cells, it turns out that a 7-10 day interval between treatments wakes up those cells most effectively!
Is Exilis safe for everyone?
Patients with a pacemaker or who are pregnant may not undergo RF treatments since there are no safety studies. Metal plates should be discussed.
Is Radio Frequency (RF) safe?
Radio frequency is a type of energy that delivers heat to the skin and deeper tissues. It has been used in medicine for over 75 years. It is extremely safe; as safe as ultrasound and definitely involves less radiation than using a cell phone.
