Exilis Ultra™ Body Contouring
Tighter, Smoother Skin without Surgery
Exilis Ultra™ is a non-invasive treatment designed to improve the appearance of common age-related cosmetic concerns: excess fat deposits, lax skin, sun damage and wrinkles. It can safely improve virtually any area of the face or body, including the abdomen, neck and arms. Dr. Lynn Klein and the team at Aesthetic Dermatology recommend Exilis Ultra™ to individuals that want smoother, firmer and younger-looking skin without the invasiveness and recovery time required of surgery.
With the safety and comfort of our patients in mind, we have upgraded our Exilis technology. Patients can now enjoy the same great skin tightening results and a more comfortable experience.
How Does Exilis Ultra™ Body Contouring Work?
Exilis Ultra™ uses radiofrequency energy to heat up the deep layers of the skin. This causes the fat cells to shrink and the body to regenerate new collagen. The fresh collagen improves the skin’s tone and texture. Gradually, the skin begins to look healthier and younger.
Exilis Ultra™ treatment can be safely used anywhere on the face or body, including the neck, trunk, arms or legs. It is commonly used to tighten skin around the eyes/brow line, on the mid-face, jawline, neck, abdomen and upper arms.
Exilis Ultra™ treatment is performed at our Bala Cynwyd office. Anesthesia is not needed; a numbing cream may be applied pre-treatment. Treatment takes less than an hour.
The Exilis Ultra™ device will be placed over the targeted treatment area. The handpiece delivers focused radiofrequency (RF) energy to the deep layers of the skin while keeping the surface soft and cool. The device is computer-controlled to allow for a very precise depth of penetration. The goal is to deliver the right combination of heat and cooling for effective, yet comfortable treatment. You will feel a warming sensation, but it will not be painful; some patients have likened the feeling to that of a hot stone massage. The RF energy shrinks fat cells and triggers the remodeling of the collagen network.
The number of treatment sessions required varies, based on the location and condition of your skin. Generally, most patients achieve the desired results after two to six treatments, spaced several weeks apart.
Recovering from Exilis Ultra™ Treatment
Exilis Ultra™ treatment does not require significant downtime. You can return to your normal activities, including work and exercise, almost immediately after treatment without restrictions. If you go outdoors, protect the treated area from the sun with sunscreen.
What Type of Results Can I Expect?
Normally, initial results appear after one treatment, and continual improvement with each additional treatment. Fat reduction results are permanent, as long as you maintain your weight with diet and exercise. Exilis Ultra™ will not stop the aging process, but it will stave off the effects of aging and the need for surgical treatment for a while.
Possible Side Effects
There have not been any significant side effects reported with Exilis Ultra™ treatment. Mild pinkness or redness may occur temporarily, but post-operative discomfort, swelling and bruising are rare.
