Exilis is an FDA approved device that offers a non-surgical solution using radio frequency (RF) energy for tissue tightening and fat reduction anywhere on the body. The procedure uses safe radio waves to heat the skin and targeted fat cells. This thermal energy speeds up the metabolic activity of the fat cells causing them to shrink. At the same time it stimulates and strengthens the collagen network which improves skin laxity.
How does the Exilis procedure work?
During the session, the Exilis computer-controlled device is guided over the treatment area. Exilis is designed with maximum control that allows RF energy to be applied to the targeted skin layer for optimal depth of penetration. The device engages the cooling system to heat deep tissue as its constant monitoring of the skin’s temperature facilitates a comfortable, even treatment. To favorably influence the upper skin layers, only controlled heating is engaged to cause the collagen supporting tissue to remodel, thereby stimulating and strengthening the collagen network.
What areas can be treated?
Any area can be treated. Optimal results are seen in patients with mild to moderately lax skin. The most frequent areas treated include: face (including the eye area), jowls, neck, décolletage, arms, bra fat, thighs, hips, breasts, buttocks, stomach and knees.
What can be expected during a treatment:
During the treatment session the Exilis device is guided over the treatment area. Patients feel a warming sensation as the energy is delivered to the deeper layers of skin. There are times the sensation is fairly intense but it is not painful. Treatment for each area is about 15 to 30 minutes in length. Some redness in the treated area may last for up to 30 minutes following the procedure. It is recommended that patients increase water intake on the day of the treatment and the day following the treatment for optimal results.
How many treatments are needed?
The number of treatments recommended depends on the condition and the area to be treated as well as your desired results. On average, optimal results are achieved after 4 to 6 sessions. Treatments are usually spaced about 2 weeks apart. Keep in mind that results are gradual and may take from 2 to 4 months to maximize the effects of the treatment.
Who is a candidate?
Because RF energy is color blind, it is safe for any skin color. Patients that have a pacemaker or defibrillator cannot be treated with the Exilis device. In addition, an area over a metal implant should not be treated.
