What is skin tightening with Exilis Elite?
Exilis Elite is an FDA approved radiofrequency heat generating machine that reduces the size of fat cells, contracts the skin and stimulates collagen production.
The overall effect is a more taught and tightened skin appearance, wrinkles are reduced and age and lifestyle related sagging is improved. It contours the skin so is effective in improving jaw structure and the appearance of double chins.
Exilis could be described as a “collagen remodelling machine”.
How does skin tightening work? How does Exilis Elite tighten the skin?
Exilis delivers precise and controlled radiofrequency energy to the deeper layers of the skin. This generates heat. The heat causes the tissues to contract without damaging them, and the soft tissue and skin above the targeted tissue remodels, becoming tighter. This has the effect of improving loose and sagging skin.
What is Exilis Elite for?
The following concerns can readily be treated with Exilis Elite –
|Sagging and loose skin around the face, particularly the jaw line||Fine lines and wrinkles in deep tissue on the face||Submental fat – double chin|
How many sessions will I need?
Skin tightening is generally a course based treatment. While effective, Exilis requires multiple sessions and some time before results are seen. This will all be discussed with you at your consultation.
Up to 6 sessions with 2 week gaps in between treatments is recommended for best results but some people may be satisfied with lighter treatment.
How long does it last?
As long as you maintain your weight at a steady level, results should maintain.
Who is suitable for skin tightening treatment?
There are very few medical reasons why someone cannot undergo this treatment. People in good health not suffering from major medical conditions or active infections are candidates.
Unfortunately, women who are pregnant or breastfeeding are not eligible.
