EXILIS

exilis-treatment

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, something that is often promised but usually never delivered. 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”. Each treatment is about 45 minutes to an hour, scheduled 7 to 10 days apart and patients are advised to have 4 to 6 treatments to achieve the best results. Results can be seen during treatment and maximum results are seen 3 months post treatment.

IS AN EXILIS TREATMENT PAINFUL?

The procedure is gentle, non-invasive, and safe. There should be minimal or no discomfort, however this varies from patient to patient and depends on the depth of the treatment. A ground pad will be applied opposite to the treatment site. Mineral/baby oil is applied to the treatment site. The settings are adjusted to keep you comfortable while maintaining the optimal treatment for results. There is NO PAIN associated with your treatment, only a moderate to intense sensation of heat which tells you that the treatment is achieving its goal. There is NO ANESTHETIC required with EXILIS treatments.

WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT FROM AN EXILIS TREATMENT?

You may see effects of the treatment after your first visit, but you will not see full results until after 4 to 6 treatments. For skin laxity, you may not see full results until 3 to 6 months after your final 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. There is no downtime from exilis treatment and you can continue with your daily activities same day!

For Skin Tightening:

  • You may experience transient erythema (redness) that will last from a few minutes to an hour or possibly longer.
  • Your skin may feel warm immediately after the treatment, but this will dissipate quickly.
  • If you had your lower face or chin treated, you may have some tenderness in the area for a few hours or a day after.
  • Treatment of the eyes may yield some swelling and patients are encouraged to sleep on two pillows for 24-48 after treatment.

For fat reduction:

  • You may experience transient erythema (redness) that will last from a few minutes to an hour or possibly longer.
  • Your skin may feel quite warm for up to a few hours after treatment as deep tissue retains heat longer.
  • You may feel tenderness in the treated area.

HOW LONG DO THE RESULTS OF AN EXILIS TREATMENT LAST?

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. Immediately following the Exilis treatment your skin will feel velvety soft. Because new collagen is forming you will experience results as long as ninety days after your treatments. The results can last for approximately 2 years.

ANY SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS AFTER AND EXILIS TREATMENT?

Please drink at least 8 cups of water a day starting 2 days before your treatment and for 2 days after your treatment to promote lymphatic drainage and fat reduction. We also encourage light physical activity after your treatment to help increase lymphatic drainage and fat reduction.

WHY ARE TREATMENTS SPACED 7-10 DAYS APART?

After the age of 20 your body loses collagen at a rate of 1% each year. Thus the cells that produce collagen basically lay dormant. The Exilis treatments are spaced 7-10 days apart because when you’re trying 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 or nursing may not undergo RF treatments since there are no safety studies.

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.
