Exilis is a non-invasive treatment for body shaping and skin tightening. It uses monopolar RF (radio frequency) and ultrasound to deliver controlled heat approximately 1-3 cm under the skin. Exilis helps patients achieve a smoother stomach, thighs, arms and tighter skin on both face and body. Yes, Exilis can improve the appearance of stretch marks. There is no need for anaesthesia, no downtime and best of all no pain!
What will a treatment involve?
During the session, the Exilis is guided over the treatment area. You will feel a warming sensation as the Exilis energy is delivered to the deeper layers of skin. Exilis uses advanced cooling to protect the skin while the energy heats deep tissue. The treatment feels like a hot stone massage. Constant monitoring of the skin’s temperature facilitates a comfortable, even treatment. The heat alone can then be used to redefine loose skin and smooth wrinkles by stimulating and strengthening the collagen network to improve skin laxity and texture. Each session is about 30 to 45 minutes in length.
Who is a good candidate?
Exilis treats stubborn areas that exercise and diet won’t budge. It is a perfect treatment for men and women who are at or close to their ideal weight. Exilis is ideal for treating wrinkles, skin laxity and shaping the face and body. Common areas of treatment include the eye area, around the mouth, chin area, jaw line, décolleté, abdomen, back, arms, legs, knees and ankles.
Exilis treatments are not suitable for those with an implanted pacemaker or internal defibrillator, metal implant, pregnant or lactating. A full list of contraindications will be discussed with you in the consultation.
How many treatments will I need?
Typically 4 treatment sessions spaced 1 to 2 weeks apart are recommended. Clients can experience results after the first few treatments and they continue to improve with each additional session. Optimal results are seen following the fourth treatment. You can have additional treatments if desired.
What about recovery?
There are no side effects and no downtime after Exilis treatments. Some pinkness may last 15 to 30 minutes.
It is very important to drink at least 2 litres of water the day before, day of, and day after your Exilis treatment. Light exercise and a healthy diet following your treatment are recommended for the best clinical outcome.
How does Exilis work?
Body Contouring Application
Exilis is the only system that can deliver both ultrasonic waves and controlled RF heating to the tissue all simultaneously whilst also cooling the skin.
The mechanical effects of ultrasound energy allows access and treatment of previously resistant tissue. Exilis precisely targets deeper fat layers, while contact cooling of the surface regulates the temperature of the skin and protects fine dermal structures.
As part of the process, mechanical waves help to increase fibrotic fat structures, causing separation of the cell defensive formation into individual units. The exposed cells are then more isolated and accessible and responsive to treatment.
High frequency energy causes targeted deep thermal heating. Metabolic activity is initiated and the local fat tissue lipolysis process is accelerated. Fat cell volume decreases and the fat layer is reduced.
Facial Rejuvenation Applications
Exilis offers the benefit of fast results in a reduced number of sessions for the reduction of skin wrinkles and skin laxity.
Collagen Refill Technology (CRT)
The collagen fiber triple-helix structure is affected by heat. This initiates the unraveling process.
The mechanical waves disrupt the collagen fibers
The combination of energies quickly and efficiently dissociates the collagen structure
The natural healing process evokes the fibroblasts to produce new collagen fibers
The skin structure is refilled with collagen
Completely non-invasive, comfortable treatment
Skin tightening and body shaping
No pain or down time
Excellent results in 4 sessions
Scientifically proven and clinically tested
