It can feel impossible to address sagging skin and excess fat, but with Exilis, patients can finally achieve effective contouring. This FDA-approved treatment option is completely non-invasive and non-surgical. With the help of Exilis in Bend, OR, patients can treat areas like the jowls, neck, arms, flanks, thighs, and abdomen.
How Does Exilis Work?
Exilis utilizes monopolar radiofrequency energy to heat the skin of the targeted area to 42 to 44 degrees Celsius. This heating process achieves multiple benefits. First, it stimulates creation of new collagen protein. Second, it remodels the existing collagen to strengthen it. Third, it increases metabolic activity in excess stubborn fat cells, reducing them in size.
Good Candidates for Exilis
Most patients are excellent candidates for Exilis treatment. If you’re looking for way to tighten loose skin, reduce wrinkles, and contour away excess fat, Exilis is most likely right for you. It is best for patients who are experiencing minor skin laxity.
Patients with medical implants such as pacemakers are not ideal candidates for Exilis. If you are pregnant, you will need to postpone Exilis treatment.
When you come into our office for a consultation, you will meet with an experienced medical professional. They will discuss the details of the Exilis treatment process from start to finish, including all preparation and aftercare directions. Asking questions is encouraged.
As part of this consultation, you will talk about the areas of your body that you would like to be contoured and tightened. These areas will be examined, and photographs may be taken to serve as a reference. Your medical history will be discussed, including any pre-existing conditions and past treatments.
The Exilis Treatment Process
The treatment process is very simple. In just 15 to 30 minutes, Exilis can be used to treat the targeted areas safely and effectively. This process requires no anesthesia and is often compared to a hot-stone massage. The Exilis handpiece is used to deliver RF energy to the treatment zones. After this, the treatment session is complete.
After Your Exilis Treatment Session
Patients require no recovery time following an Exilis treatment, making it incredibly convenient. There may be very slight warmth and redness in the areas of treatment for a short time, but these will fade quickly.
For best results, patients usually come in for four to six Exilis treatment sessions. Each treatment session should be performed two to four weeks from the date of the previous session.
After a session, results appear gradually as new collagen is produced at an advanced rate. In time, the skin becomes tighter, smoother, and healthier, and treated areas reduce in volume.
How Much Does Exilis Cost?
Exilis treatment varies in cost based on the details of each patient’s treatment process. The number of treatment sessions can affect the total price, as can the exact areas being treated.
