Skin Tightening - Exilis Ultra
Eilis Elite - Non Surgical Skin Tightening
Dr. Westreich’s office is excited to now offer safe and effective skin tightening treatments, as an alternative to aging face or facial recontouring surgery. The Exilis Elite is the most advanced radiofrequency tightening machine on the market. Using impedance feedback, which is a unique feature of the Exilis machine, pain is reduced over sensitive areas by current reduction, which occurs automatically, without interfering with efficacy. Exilis elite offers a pain free treatment in typically 30-40 minute sessions. By heating layers of skin below the epidermis, the body’s natural collagen building mechanisms are stimulated to tighten skin to a more youthful state. The treatment can be performed anywhere on the face or body, including upper and lower eyelids, neck, abdomen, knees, inner thighs, and arms.
In addition to offering skin tightening, the Exilis Elite can also reduce unwanted fatty deposits through the same heating mechanisms, done at a deeper level. The combination of fat reduction and overlying skin tightening provides significant value for treating small areas or contour concerns including but not limited to the submental area (under chin), flanks (love handles), abdomen, thighs, and the upper arm. With this device, Dr. Westreich can offer you a more youthful and contoured appearance without surgery.
How does Exilis work
Exilis Elite uses mono-polar radiofrequency and not laser technology, so it is safe for all skin types and colors. Heating the undersurface of the skin to approximately 40 degrees causes changes to the collagen. An immediate lift or collagen tightening is seen post-treatment and followed by collagen production and remodeling over the next 3-6 months. In as little as 2 treatments on the face and 4 treatments on the body, patients will see both immediate and long term results. Treatments are usually performed in 2-3 week intervals and feel much like an intense hot stone massage. Redness and the sensation of heat often subside within an hour, leaving the patient free to resume all daily activities. Using two different sized hand pieces, the treatment can be catered to the area of concern. Common treatment areas include the neck & jowls, the midface, eyes, the forehead (for brow lifting) and the abdomen, as well as larger areas such as thighs, arms and knees.
Treatments are generally performed in under an hour.
