Exilis® is an exciting new technology that delivers radiofrequency (RF) energy for non-surgical body contouring and skin tightening. Our Nashville patients are discovering the advantages of this treatment for slimming areas of the body and face and firming up their skin all without the need for a surgical procedure. Unlike surgical body contouring options such as liposuction, Exilis® requires no incisions, and no downtime is needed.
During an Exilis® treatment, precisely controlled radiofrequency (RF) energy is used to heat the deeper layers of the skin. This heat causes fat cells to shrink and contracts the skin tissue, stimulating new collagen production in the process. Exilis® is safe for use on many areas of the body and face, including the neck, midsection, thighs and arms.
Style Blueprint Magazine tried the Exilis experience at Nashville Cosmetic Surgery and offered this review:
“Exilis is not liposuction and does not provide those same dramatic results. But, it does offer significant results and it does not require surgery. This non-invasive procedure is FDA approved to tighten skin, and practitioners are using it for fat reduction, as well. It uses radio frequency waves to provide deep thermal heating which will A) cause your body to produce collagen, which yields tighter, firmer skin and B) disrupts the fat and “melts” it. Your body rids itself of this fat through the lymphatic system. Fat loss has immediate results (with a suggested 4 appointments) while firmer skin needs 2-3 months as it’s your own body’s production of collagen that produces these results. Does it work for everyone? No, but it does work for most.”
The Exilis® platform was designed to deliver energy in a short treatment duration for greater patient convenience and comfort. Generally, a series of 4-6 treatments will be required to achieve the desired result. The number of treatments will depend on your existing cosmetic concerns and the goals you want to achieve.
WHAT KIND OF RESULTS CAN YOU EXPECT?
You may start to see some body contouring and skin tightening results after just 1 to 2 Exilis® treatments, but in most cases optimal results will be achieved only after the third or fourth treatment. Treatments should be spaced out over 2 to 3 week intervals. Since there is no downtime or special care required once you leave the office, you can carry on with the rest of your day’s activities immediately following treatment.
