Exilis™ Laser for Skin Tightening and Body Contouring
If you are looking to rejuvenate skin affected by wrinkles and loss of firmness, a new non-invasive cosmetic enhancement technique available at our practice may be a great option for your needs. The Exilis™ procedure can be an effective non-surgical alternative to liposuction or skin lifting surgery for patients who would like to rejuvenate areas of skin showing wrinkles and a loss of tightness and elasticity. The treatment involves a series of quick, in-office procedures that typically result in zero recovery time. Plus, Exilis™ treatment is virtually painless.
Please contact board-certified plastic surgeon Tom Lintner, MD to schedule a consultation for skin tightening and body contouring with the Exilis™ treatment.
Advantages of the Exilis™ Procedure
A number of concerns can be addressed with Exilis™ treatment. Whether you are affected by small areas of excess fat, or wrinkles that have appeared due to age or sun damage, the Exilis™ procedure can provide you with effective recontouring and rejuvenation. Advantages of this treatment include:
- Fat deposit reduction
- Wrinkle reduction
- Improvement of skin tightness and elasticity
- Procedure is virtually painless
- Most patients do not require recovery time
The Exilis™ Procedure
The Exilis™ procedure can be an effective way to improve your body contours and reduce excess fat and improve the appearance of the skin without the need for anesthesia, incisions, or invasive surgery. Electrical currents and radiofrequency waves utilized in the Exilis™ treatment liquefy and shrink fat from fat cells, helping patients who wish to improve contour in areas containing small pockets of excess fat. For wrinkle reduction, Exilis™ works to help the promote growth of new collagen by heating the collagen layer under the skin through ultrasound. This technique can help tighten the skin and make it appear smoother and more youthful.
The entire Exilis™ procedure usually takes about 30 to 45 minutes to complete. In many patients, the procedure takes no more than 10 or 15 minutes. One of the chief benefits of Exilis™ treatment is that you should not experience any pain during the procedure – only a mild heating effect on the skin.
The best results from the Exilis™ technique typically occur after four or five treatment sessions over a six-week period. The effects of the procedure should continue to improve over the next three months, and results are seen for 18 months to two years.
