Exilis Elite Skin Tightening
Questions & Answers
Am I a candidate for Exilis Elite treatments?
Exilis Elite can improve skin laxity and improve fine lines and wrinkles anywhere on the body. It is an especially effective, non-surgical treatment option for loose skin, lines and wrinkles around the eyes and neck.
Frequently treated areas include: eye area, neck, lower face and jaw line area (lifts sagging jowls and enhances jaw line definition) and hands.
Is there anyone who should not have Exilis Elite treatments?
Exilis Elite treatments cannot be performed if you are pregnant or nursing, have a defibrillator or pacemaker or have any metal implants (stents, hip or knee replacments, hernia repairs, heart valves, etc.).
Do I have any restrictions post treatment?
No. There is no downtime associated with the procedure. In fact, for those undergoing body sculpting treatments, we advise light to moderate exercise after the treatments to enhance results.
How long do results last?
Exilis Elite is a relatively new device. Initial studies have shown that patients who had treatments over two years ago have maintained their results.
Reduce wrinkles, tighten skin, sculpt and contour your body with Exilis Elite. Exilis Elite is a safe, non-invasive, FDA approved device that offers the latest advances in radiofrequency aesthetic technology.
How It Helps
Exilis Elite uses radiofrequency energy to generate deep targeted thermal heating that shrinks and dissolves fat cells. It also heats the undersurface of the skin which denatures and remodels collagen. This leads to skin tightening, reduced skin laxity, improved wrinkles and smoother skin. This newly released device has twice the power as the original Exilis and, hence, can deliver superior results with fewer treatments.
What to Expect
Exilis Elite treatments take 20 to 40 minutes to perform and are typically not painful (no anesthesia is required). Most patients compare their treatment experience to a very warm massage. There is no downtime associated with the procedure. Most patients have some post treatment redness of the skin that resolves within 1-2 hours. While some patients may notice results immediately, optimal results are seen after a series of 4 – 6 treatments performed at 1 to 2 week intervals. Results continue to improve for several months after you have completed your treatment series. While results are not equivalent to a surgical face-lift, neck-lift or liposuction, Exilis Elite is a great option for patients interested in a non-surgical approach.
How to Prepare
If you are having body treatments, drink plenty of water for at least 24 hours leading up to and after your treatments. Otherwise, you do not need to do anything special prior to your treatment session. You may continue all of your medications, supplements and vitamins during the treatment series. Wear loose, comfortable clothing so we can gain access to your back/thigh/buttocks for easy placement of the ground electrode as well as the treatment area. If there is hair in the treatment area, shave prior to your appointment.
For facial treatments, do not wear make-up, creams, lotions or jewelry. Men must shave the morning of their facial/neck treatments.
