Skin Tightening - Exilis Ultra
Exilis Ultra - Non-Surgical Skin Tightening
Innovative new technology for radiant, youthful skin and a slim, shapely figure.
Today’s cosmetic treatment landscape is abundant with cutting edge, non-surgical alternatives to more invasive treatments such as facelifts, tummy tucks or liposuction. The Exilis procedure involves the energy of subtle, combined ultrasound and radiofrequency that are harnessed to help tighten and tone the skin, and also slim and recontour the body. With no incisions, no pain, and no downtime, Exilis is quickly becoming one of the most sought out new therapies for looking and feeling one’s best.
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 Ultra is the most advanced radiofrequency and ultrasound 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 Ultra 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 Ultra 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 Ultra Work?
During the procedure, the deep layers of the dermis are heated using carefully computer-monitored radiofrequency (RF) and Ultrasound (US) energy that stimulates the regrowth of lost collagen as it penetrates. Real-time temperature monitoring helps to ensure target tissues are heated enough to get the desired result, but not more than necessary. Exilis can also eradicate unwanted fat cells when treatments are done at a deeper level, using a specific handpiece for contouring.
The result is a youthful, healthy glow and a more shapely, trim figure. Exilis treatment is quite comfortable, with the radiofrequency energy being delivered in short, manageable units for a typical duration of around 20 minutes. Exilis is appropriate for use on the face, the neck, the abdomen, hips, thighs, arms, knees, ankles and legs. As the handpiece glides over the skin, the only sensation is mild warming that some clients actually find quite pleasant.
Exilis Ultra 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 handpieces, 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.
Exilis Ultra for Cellulite Reduction
Cellulite is a natural condition – but very unpleasant to live with, or see in others. Rather than smooth, taut skin on buttocks and thighs, unsightly dimples, or “cottage cheese” leaves people in a position where they must dress to hide the area or reveal it, aware that others will be seeing the unpleasant bumps and lumps. Exilis Ultra is an FDA-approved treatment for cellulite smoothing and body contouring.
How does the Exilis Ultra system work?
The Exilis Ultra system uses a combination of radiofrequency and mechanical waves. The system heats the tissue beneath the skin, forcing the lumpy fat deposits out of their fibrous cages – what produces the dimples, lumps, and bumps. The fat is heated and melted, causing the cells to shrink. The system has an auto-cooling device to aid in protecting surrounding skin and tissue during treatment. With several Exilis treatments, areas of unsightly cellulite can be smoothed, with fatty deposits reduced.
Exilis Ultra for Body Sculpting: A Non-Invasive Treatment for a Trimmer Body
Many of our patients struggle with fatty deposits in abdomen, buttocks, thighs, back, and arms. Even those who are dedicated to healthy eating and exercise can have areas of the body that just won’t reduce. To finally trim away excess fat, the Exilis Ultra system produces excellent, long-lasting results. While melting fat, the system improves skin tone and quality.
Advanced Fat Reduction with Exilis Ultra
The first step in reducing fatty deposits is to have a private evaluation. Modern technology has made it possible to trim and slim the body without undergoing invasive surgery. The Exilis Ultra system offers some significant advantages over other non-invasive body sculpting processes. These include:
- • Reduces fat deposits
- • Tightens skin
- • Safe, and more comfortable than many other treatments
- • Appropriate treatment for all body areas
Body Contouring with Exilis Ultra
While many body contouring systems can reduce excess fat, Exilis Ultra offers the advantage of tightening skin while reducing fat, leaving a smoother, more attractive look for those who suffer from mild skin laxity. Only a personal evaluation of the health and flexibility of your skin will reveal whether this treatment will produce the improvement you want. Exilis Ultra may be used in combination with other treatments to produce a smoother, trimmer body contour. The treatment is appropriate for all body areas, including:
- • Thighs
- • Buttocks
- • Mouth, chin, eye zone
- • Jawline
- • Neck
- • Décolletage
- • Love handles
- • Back
- • Arms, legs, knees, ankles
No Anesthesia, No Downtime
To achieve optimal results, you may need four to six sessions, with each session scheduled two weeks apart. The sessions require little of your time -- about 30 minutes. Once completed, you are free to return to your normal activities, whether work or play. To prepare for treatment, almost nothing is required, other than drinking water.
As the Weeks Pass, Your New Sculpted Look is Revealed
The treatment will require you to have some patience, as the final results require time. As the days and weeks pass, you will see the fatty zones begin to reduce, becoming slimmer and more sculpted in appearance.
How Does an Exilis Ultra Treatment Feel?
You will experience a sensation of deep heating, and most patients find the treatment comfortable and easy to tolerate. The cooling feature of the system aids in a comfortable, effective treatment.
