Exilis skin tightening is a procedure used to tone and tighten the skin, contour the body without surgery, and remove stubborn deposits of fat. The procedure has no downtime and is performed in the office. This treatment is a combination of body contouring, non-invasive fat removal, and skin tightening. The procedure is used to improve both the texture and tone of the skin in addition to using radiofrequency technology to decrease unwanted areas of fat. The procedure consists of several sessions. The skin is gently warmed to reduce unwanted fat and encourage the growth of new collagen.
The Exilis device delivers a safe electrical energy to the skin through the handpiece. A grounding pad is generally put on the back of the patient during the treatment to ensure the radiofrequency is delivered safely. The treatment releases the radiofrequency energy flow to warm the skin to 40 degrees. The temperature stimulates the production of new collagen. This leads to an improvement in wrinkles, laxity and skin texture.
