Exilis is an FDA-approved treatment that provides skin tightening without surgery, injections, or anesthesia – helping you look on the outside like you feel each day on the inside. It can tighten and lift sagging skin by simultaneously harnessing the power of radiofrequency and ultrasound energy. It emits heat to the foundational layers of the skin to promote collagen production through the healing process.
The Exilis Ultra treatment produces immediate results and is pain-free allowing patients to return to their daily activities immediately following treatment.
How Does it Work?
During a typical procedure, a combination of radiofrequency and ultrasound energy is aimed at the treatment area. Both of these energies pass through the uppermost layers of the skin and are absorbed as heat by the lower, more foundational layers. This triggers the body’s natural healing response, stimulating the circulation of blood and causing the creation of collagen, a major structural protein in the skin. Over time, this healing response results in tighter, healthier, younger-looking skin.
During treatment, the temperature of the skin’s surface is carefully monitored to ensure that it doesn’t get too hot. This careful attention to the temperature of the skin’s surface is part of the reason why Exilis Ultra™ skin tightening treatments rarely feature downtime or discomfort.
What can I Expect from an Exilis Ultra™ Skin Tightening Treatment?
Unlike many similar treatments, no anesthesia is required for Exilis Ultra™ treatments. Most patients report that treatment feels like a hot stone massage. Typically, this procedure takes between 20-40 minutes to complete depending on the area being treated.
While patients can usually see some changes in their amount of skin laxity after a single Exilis Ultra™ skin tightening treatment, most undergo three sessions to get lasting, dramatic results. Because it takes time for new skin cells and collagen to form, patients gradually see the results of their treatment over the course of a few months.
