Certain areas of the body are harder to target with diet and exercise than others. Firm skin and an appropriately feminine or masculine body contour is the goal of many individuals, a goal which is being achieved through the innovation of Exilis. Exilis re-shapes the thighs, buttocks, abdomen, arms, and face while tightening loose skin. On the face, the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is effectively reduced. Best of all, there are no incisions, no need for anesthesia, and no downtime involved.
Using radiofrequency energy to deliver deep thermal heat into the skin, exilis initiates collagen remodeling, skin tightening, and fat loss. Exilis tightens the skin by disrupting the collagen fiber triple-helix structure, initiating a natural healing response and signaling fibroblasts to generate new collagen fibers. This new collagen production rebuilds skin structure, smoothing out wrinkles and tightening skin for a younger appearance.
Candidates for Exilis Treatment
- Men and women who have areas of the body that have not responded well to traditional fat loss techniques.
- Signs of aging that most would rather do without, including wrinkles, fine lines, and lax skin.
- Patients who want to improve their appearance without undergoing surgery.
About the Procedure
Using a handheld device, monopolar radio frequency, coupled with advanced cooling technology, penetrates the skin safely at deeper depths than previous non-invasive techniques allowed. No skin is harmed in the process. The targeted fat cells are heated to a temperature at which they are destroyed and eliminated from the body naturally. The thermal energy simultaneously encourages the production of collagen and tightens the skin.
As the applicator is applied directly to the targeted area, patients experience a warm feeling at the site. Most Exilis procedures last an hour or less, depending on the size of the body area being treated. Sessions are usually scheduled at intervals spaced 7 to 10 days apart. It has been found that ideal results are achieved over the course of 4 to 6 sessions.
How Long Does an Exilis Treatment Package Last?
Dr. Byrd suggests that a healthy low-fat diet, mild to moderate exercise, and good hydration practices be followed, especially right after treatment. Continued proper nutrition and physical activity will ensure that results are long lasting. Body figure and contour may be affected by future lifestyle and eating habits including other external factors.
Aftercare and Recovery
One of the many benefits of Exilis is that there is no recovery time associated with the procedure. Some pinkness or redness may be visible on the skin temporarily, but these side effects typically subside within a half-hour after treatment. Patients may return to their normal activity immediately upon leaving the office, including work and exercise. Physical activity is highly encouraged.
There are no risks associated with Exilis treatments.
