Facial and Body Skin Tightening Procedures


The latest weapon in our anti-aging and body-sculpting arsenal is Exilis, an FDA-approved technology. Exilis uses radio frequency waves to simultaneously tighten skin and reduce fat. Heat from the radio frequency waves both stimulates collagen for a tauter, smoother skin, and at the same time targets fat cells virtually anywhere on the body.

Exilis is a noninvasive, nonsurgical device that uses RF, or radio frequency, waves to precisely heat deep tissue below the surface of the skin. This heat shrinks the fat cells as well as stimulating new collagen production, leading to smoother, firmer skin. Exilis is an FDA-approved treatment that demonstrably smooths cellulite dimples and creates firmer, more youthful-looking skin.


What Can I Expect from an Exilis Treatment?

Exilis procedures are safe, fast, and relatively pain-free. During an Exilis session, you will feel a sensation of heat as the RF waves target your deep skin tissue to melt away fat cells and stimulate collagen production. The Exilis device has a built-in cooling mechanism that will keep this heat from becoming unbearable. Most patients find Exilis to be comfortable, with the heat sensation described as a “warm massage.”

Exilis sessions generally take anywhere from fifteen to forty-five minutes, depending on the areas to be treated. There is no recovery time necessary, so you can return to your everyday life immediately following a session. Multiple Exilis sessions are needed in order to achieve full results. The number of treatments will vary depending on the individual, but generally, four to six treatments are recommended.

While multiple sessions are needed to see full results, these results are long-lasting. If you follow post-treatment instructions and lead a healthy lifestyle, Exilis results will last for years.

Exilis is extremely safe and has almost no side effects. In some instances, a patient may experience some minor irritation in the area which was treated. When performed by an expert dermatologist such as Dr. Isaac, side effects are very rare.




Who is a good candidate for Exilis?

If you have areas of loose, sagging skin or cellulite, you may be a good candidate for Exilis. Exilis is good for tightening, firming, and smoothing skin, making it ideal for smoothing out cellulite dimples or restoring sagging skin. Exilis is not, however, meant for fat reduction. If you are looking to lose inches, other procedures such as CoolSculpting® may be better for you. However, Coolsculpting® does not tighten skin, so once you have finished your Coolsculpting treatment you may require skin tightening.

Exilis can be used in conjunction with other procedures in order to achieve fuller, more comprehensive results. If you want skin tightening along with body contouring, or firmer skin combined with wrinkle reduction or evening of skin tone or texture, Exilis is a good option to use in combination with other treatments such as lasers, dermal fillers or body sculpting procedures such as CoolSculpting®.
