What is Exilis?
Exilis is a procedure used for skin tightening and non-invasive fat removal that helps body contouring with virtually no-downtime and no pain while being performed in-office. It uses radio frequency technology to improve skin texture while reducing unseemly fat. Exilis is performed through a number of sessions that gently warms the skin to promote collagen development while reducing unwanted fat.
How Does Exilis Work?
Exilis is radio frequency device that is developed around monopolar cathode technology. Electrical energy is applied by the Exilis hand piece to the treated skin areas, with a grounding pad in place, this allows for the safe delivery of radio waves to the treated areas. Radio waves energy travels from the tip to the skin, warming the skin to around 107 degrees to 113 degrees Fahrenheit. At this point, collagen undergoes a structural change, and over a period of weeks to months new collagen growth develops, leading to improvement wrinkle reduction, skin laxity and texture.
What Areas Are Best Treated with Exilis?
Exilis is designed for firming and toning up the skin in and around areas of the face with attention to the neck and jowl lines as well as certain areas of the body. The treatment helps to tighten the skin while reducing fat in the areas it treats.
Body areas where Exilis is effective at tightening and toning are the abdomen, flanks, thighs and arms to slim and contour while improving the texture due to aging.
