Exilis Ultra™ is the latest technique to help both men and women eliminate hard-to-get-rid-of fat, lumps, and rolls. This FDA-approved fat reduction device uses radio-wave technology to target fat deposits deep in your skin with thermal technology.
This thermal energy speeds up the metabolic activity of the fat cells, causing them to shrink. At the same time, it stimulates the production of collagen, a protein naturally produced in the body that diminishes with age. Collagen improves skin laxity, structure, and texture, so the more you have of it, the better your skin looks and feels.
While most people think that women are most concerned about their appearance, studies show plastic surgery and cosmetic procedures have become increasingly popular with men over the years.
Here’s how we at Los Gatos Dermatology use Exilis Ultra to help both men and women look their best.
Exilis Ultra is noninvasive
Exilis Ultra is a nonsurgical, noninvasive procedure that helps reduce unwanted body fat without the sticker-shock price of a surgical procedure such as a tummy tuck or liposuction.
Even better, Elixis is an in-office procedure that takes only about 15-30 minutes, depending on the treatment area. No anesthesia or hospital stay is required. And because we use a cooling device in conjunction with the heating device, the procedure is relatively comfortable and painless.
It reduces fat and tightens skin
Many procedures reduce fat pockets but leave lax, saggy skin in its place. Exilis Ultra uses ultrasound and radiofrequency technology in combination to shrink fat cells and also stimulate collagen production to tighten and firm the skin.
Exilis Ultra requires no downtime
Unlike surgery that requires weeks or months of rest, activity restrictions, and downtime, with Exilis Ultra you can walk out of the office after the 30-minute procedure and return to your normal, everyday activities. Other than slightly pink and warm skin, side effects are rare and minimal.
It has long-lasting results
After a full course of treatments, most people can expect results to last at least two years. But eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly can help prolong the results. Yearly maintenance treatment can help you maintain your results even longer.
The Exilis Ultra treats all areas of the face and body
With different frequency settings, Exilis Ultra can help tighten and shrink most areas on your face and body. Whatever body part bothers you the most, Exilis can most likely shrink and tighten. Common areas include:
- Neck and jowls
Exilis Ultra is not a weight-loss procedure, and ideal candidates are ones who are close to a healthy weight. Most people see the best results after about four sessions, spaced several weeks apart.
Because it takes about 90 days for the body to produce new collagen, full results are visible about three to six months after treatments. During a consultation with you, Dr. Bruce Saal can recommend the ideal number of procedures you need to help you achieve your goals.
