Exilis Skin Tightening

Cosmetic Dermatologist Serving Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, Larchmont & surrounding areas in California

Exilis is a new opportunity to tighten up loose skin anywhere on the body – as well as the face. Since Exilis utilizes radio frequency, it is not a laser, making it an effective, well-tolerated treatment with an exceptionally high safety factor.

Common areas of treatment include the

  • Eye area
  • Around the mouth or chin
  • Jaw line
  • Neck and décolleté
  • Abdomen
  • Back
  • Arms, legs, knees
  • “Cankles”

Just in! Exilis ELITE

The new ELITE platform optimizes the dynamic monopolar radio frequency (RF) technology of the original system to deliver thermal energy producing measurable results much sooner. Better results faster with an even more proficient safety profile.

Skin Tightening & Fat Reduction*

Power and cooling adjustments determine how deeply the RF penetrates – to get deep enough to disrupt fat cells and also to stay superficially enough to tighten skin that has lost its firmness.

*In our clinical experience we see the following:

  • Effective tightening on mild to moderately lax skin (professional evaluation needed)
  • Minimal actual fat reduction – this is not a result of treatment levels but simply our honest “real-patient” outcomes.
  • Age matters. Best for patients under the 60 year mark (this is primarily because maturity also includes collagen-capability slow down).

Exilis Works Fast – on ALL Skins

Patients can see results as soon as 2 to 3 sessions with 4 to 6 sessions recommended.  You’ll see changes in facial contours, body contours and if targeted for fat reduction, some minor loss of circumference. Because RF energy is color blind, it’s safe for any skin color.

Easy, Comfortable and Preparation-Free

A major lure for choosing Exilis is that there is no anesthesia and little to no downtime. Optimal results are achieved after four or six sessions with sessions generally 2 weeks apart. Each session is about 20 to 30 minutes in length. When your treatment is complete you can go back to your day with no signs that you’ve had a procedure. The only “prep” is drinking water before your session.

What Happens During Treatment with Exilis?

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.  There are times the sensation is fairly intense but lasts only seconds. The ability to focus the energy on specific areas at the targeted depth of penetration makes Exilis a highly effective aesthetic solution

**Treatment Sequence Requirement

Treatments must be sequenced at 7-14 day intervals for a minimum of 4 treatments to achieve proper results. At 3 months following your session completion, you will see the majority of your improvement. Plan on 4 to 6 treatments as recommended by your RF specialist.

The Exilis system allows a very precise depth of penetration for a custom treatment for each individual.

How Does RF Tightening Work?

Exilis is so effective because it heats the under-surface of the skin where collagen remodeling can take place. This collagen remodeling is what causes the tightening effect. When the energy is placed deeply, fat is affected. When placed in the dermis, skin tightening occurs.
