Fat Reduction & Body Contouring in Calgary
What is Exilis ELITE?
Exilis ELITE is an exciting new technology that uses radio frequency (RF) energy for body contouring and skin tightening. It is a non-surgical procedure that reduces fat and firms skin in the face and body.
How does Exilis ELITE work?
During an Exilis ELITE treatment, precisely controlled radio frequency 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.
Who is a good candidate for Exilis ELITE treatment?
Exilis ELITE is recommended for any patient between the ages of 25 and 70+ who desires cosmetic improvement, particularly those areas that show the signs of aging, unhealthy life style and have not responded to other treatment options. Exilis ELITE treatment offers cosmetic improvement without surgery.
What does an Exilis ELITE treatment feel like?
As the Exilis ELITE device is guided over the area to be treated, you will feel a deep heating sensation. Exilis ELITE radio frequency energy is delivered to the deeper layers of the skin. The underside of the applicator provides cooling to the skin’s surface, keeping you more comfortable during the treatment.
How long is an Exilis ELITE treatment?
The Exilis ELITE platform was designed to deliver energy in a short treatment of under an hour for greater patient convenience and comfort. Generally, a series of two or three 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.
Is there any downtime?
There is no downtime with this procedure. There may be temporary pinkness or redness in the skin for about 20-30 minutes that quickly subsides. 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.
Is Exilis ELITE safe?
Yes, Exilis ELITE is an FDA cleared device for skin tightening. There are controls built in to the device to ensure that it does not overheat the skin.
What kind of results can I expect with Exilis ELITE?
You may start to see some body contouring and skin tightening results after just 1 to 2 Exilis ELITE treatments, but in most cases, your optimal result will be achieved after the third or fourth treatment. Treatments will be spaced out over 1 to 2 week intervals.
Can I achieve same results with Exilis ELITE as with liposuction?
Exilis ELITE is not a replacement for weight loss and results will not be as dramatic as with liposuction. It is better used for smaller areas of localized fat that have not responded well to diet or exercise and for areas where non-surgical skin tightening is requested.
What areas of the body can be treated with Exilis ELITE?
Due to the unique design of Exilis ELITE the neck, face, body, arms and legs, back fat and knees are all treated successfully.
How long do results last?
Exilis ELITE is a relatively new device, but current studies show that those who have had treatment over 2 years ago have maintained their results. Typically, once fat cells have been destroyed, they do not come back.
What else should I know about an Exilis ELITE treatment?
It is important that you are very well hydrated before, during and after your Exilis ELITE treatment to achieve maximum results. It is also recommended that you partake is some sort of light exercise, such as walking, for 30-40 minutes following body treatments in order to maximize results.
