What is Exilis?
Exilis is an FDA-cleared aesthetic device that delivers highly controlled, volumetric heating to tissue for measurable cosmetic results. Scientifically proven and clinically tested, Exilis uses focused high frequency energy to improve appearances by reducing wrinkles and treating laxity—typically in four to six comfortable treatment sessions.
The key benefit of Exilis is its ability to target the energy with a combination of heating and cooling to achieve the desired cosmetic outcome while keeping patients comfortable. There is no anesthesia needed, and typically no downtime after Exilis treatments. Treatment sessions are usually scheduled for four sessions over a period of one to two months. Each session is about 20 to 40 minutes in length.
What are the key benefits?
Focused RF Technology To Redefine Appearances: Exilis offers the best depth of penetration to produce positive aesthetic effects, notably younger-looking as well as firmer skin for a transformed appearance. Common areas of treatment include the lower face, jaw line, and neck as well as the décolleté, abdomen, back, arms, legs, knees and “cankles”.
Control of the flow of the Exilis energy and constant monitoring of skin temperature to reach therapeutic thermal effect in the shortest amount of time helps ensure maximum well-being without serious or long-lasting side effects.
Speed of Treatments:
About 20 to 40 minutes per session.
Typically performed in four sessions over a period of one to two months with improvement continuing for up to 4-6 months after the last treatment.
Very Well Tolerated:
Minimal patient discomfort.
Highly versatile aesthetic device with many treatment options for nonsurgical lifting, tightening, and contouring.
An affordable option for people of all skin color types from all walks of life.
What is the Exilis procedure? 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’s cooling system allows treatment to heat deep tissue as its constant monitoring of the skin’s temperature facilitates a comfortable, even treatment The Exilis treatments cause the collagen supporting tissue to remodel, thereby stimulating and strengthening the collagen network to improve skin laxity, texture and tighten and tone.
How many treatments will I need? How long will the results last?
The recommended course of treatment is generally four and sometime up to six sessions, one every two weeks. You can have additional treatments if desired. Patients typically continue to see improvement for up to 6 months after their last treatment.
Is It Safe?
Exilis has been tested in clinical studies and documented a good record for safety. 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 redness on the treated area may last for about 30 minutes to a few hours or longer. Patients may increase water intake on the day of treatment and the day after, and should engage in light exercise such as walking.
Who is a candidate for Exilis?
Typically patients between the ages of 25 and 70 or older who desire cosmetic improvement, particularly those areas that show the signs of aging, and have not responded to other treatment options. Exilis treatment offers cosmetic improvement without surgery.
