Cellulite is influenced by many factors such as aging and poor blood circulation, contributing to the weakening of collagen fiber and causing the orange peel-like appearance of skin surface. An effective cellulite reduction treatment will increase collagen production, reduce subcutaneous fat mass and improve dermal blood circulation.
Exilis provides fast and effective skin tightening, as well as treatment of wrinkles and rhytids, with visible results often after the first session
What is the Exilis procedure and how does it work?
During the session, the Exilis computer-controlled device is guided over the treatment area. Patients feel a warming sensation as the Energy is delivered to the deeper layers of skin. The ability to focus the Energy on specific areas at the targeted depth of penetration makes Exilis a highly effective aesthetic solution. 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 redefine loose skin and smooth wrinkles. Thus, the Exilis causes the collagen supporting tissue to remodel, thereby stimulating and strengthening the collagen network to improve skin laxity and texture.
How many treatments will I need? How long do the results last?
The recommended course of treatment is generally four to six sessions, one every two weeks. You can have additional treatments if desired. Patients show persistent results at least six months after the Exilis treatment. Is it safe? Exilis has been tested in clinical studies and proven to be safe and effective. It has been cleared by the FDA in the U.S. for use in dermatologic and aesthetic procedures with indications for non-invasive treatment of wrinkles and rhytids.
What about recovery?
Some pinkness on the treated area may last for about 15-30 minutes. Patients should increase water intake on the day of treatment and the day after, and should engage in light exercise such as walking to enhance cosmetic results.
What are the side effects?
There have been no significant side effects reported with Exilis treatment.
Who is a candidate for Exilis?
Exilis is recommended for any patient between the ages of 25 and 70+ who desires cosmetic improvement, particularly those areas that show the signs of aging, unhealthy life style and have not responded to other treatment options. Exilis treatment offers cosmetic improvement without surgery.
