Tighten Saggy Skin Before Summer With Exilis

If you’re like many of our patients, you’ve found that working out and dieting aren't enough to get the figure you want. And let’s not forget about your face, which is in the spotlight over the summer. Sunglasses alone can’t hide saggy skin, fine lines, and loose jowls. 

While surgery is always an option, it’s expensive and requires weeks if not months of recovery and downtime.

Wouldn’t it be great if there was an affordable nonsurgical option that could not only reduce fat but tighten your skin as well? 

Most fat reduction procedures reduce fat without tightening the loose skin. Exilis® is an FDA-approved device that reduces fat and tightens skin at the same time. In other words, Exilis can help you look better this summer if you get started now.

Board-certified cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Bruce Saal at and our expert team at Los Gatos Dermatology can help you look younger, firmer, and trimmer this summer with Exilis. Here’s what you need to know about this effective procedure.

What is Exilis?

Exilis is an innovative technology that uses radiofrequency energy to heat up and essentially melt away fat cells while promoting collagen production, which tightens your skin. We can use Exilis on many parts of your body. 

Are you unhappy with your flabby abdomen? Exilis can help. It can help you contour your figure or tighten your skin. Exilis is most often used on arms, abdomens, and thighs, as well as the neck, jawline, and face. 

Side effects are minimal. You can schedule a treatment for your lunch hour and return to work immediately afterward. 

Am I a good candidate for Exilis?

Exilis can help you get rid of unwanted rolls and lumps without leaving crepey, wrinkly skin behind. It’s ideal if you’re close to your desired weight and eat healthy and exercise regularly. 

It’s also suitable if you want to look younger but don’t want to spend the money or time on a surgical lift. As you might guess, Exilis isn’t a weight-loss procedure. 

What kind of results can I expect with Exilis?

After your procedure, your skin may feel a little hot and look a little pink. Those side effects should subside within a few hours. 

After your fat cells have been zapped, they slowly flush out of your system. While many of our patients notice results right away or within a few weeks, final results can take up to 90 days to appear. For optimal results, Dr. Saal may recommend multiple treatments.
