Exilis® – Vero Beach FL
Exilis® is an exciting new technology that delivers radiofrequency (RF) energy for non-surgical body contouring and skin tightening.
Our Vero Beach patients are discovering the advantages of this treatment for slimming areas of the body and face and firming up their skin all without the need for a surgical procedure.
Unlike surgical body contouring options such as liposuction, Exilis® requires no incisions, and no downtime is needed.
How it Works
During an Exilis® treatment, precisely controlled radiofrequency (RF) energy is used to heat the deeper layers of the skin. This heat causes fat cells to shrink and contracts the skin tissue, stimulating new collagen production in the process. Exilis® is safe for use on many areas of the body and face, including the neck, midsection, thighs and arms.
The Exilis® platform was designed to deliver energy in a short treatment duration for greater patient convenience and comfort. Generally, a series of treatments will be required to achieve the desired result. The number of treatments will depend on your existing cosmetic concerns and the goals you want to achieve.
Before and After
What to Expect
You may start to see some body contouring and skin tightening results after just 1 to 2 Exilis® treatments, but in most cases optimal results will be achieved only after the third or fourth treatment. Treatments will be spaced out over 1 to 2 week intervals.
Since there is no downtime or special care required once you leave the office, you can carry on with the rest of your day’s activities immediately following treatment.
During your consultation, we can discuss the full range of body contouring and skin tightening procedures available at our practice, including, CoolSculpting® and Ultherapy®. You can count on Facial Rejuvenation FL for the latest skin care and body slimming treatments.
The average cost for Exilis® is $250 per treatment area. A package of 4 can be purchased for $800 ($200 savings).
Duration: It takes about ninety days for new collagen to form so after that you can expect results to last approximately 2 years.
What parts of the body can be treated with Exilis®?
Exilis®’ built-in cooling device makes it safe for reducing lax skin and excess fat anywhere on the body, including the face. Areas that can be treated include the face and eyes, neck, jowls, abdomen, arms, thighs, love handles, décolletage, knees, and fat rolls on the back.
How many treatment sessions are necessary?
Everyone is different, but in general most people begin to see a measurable difference after only 1or 2 visits and see excellent results after only 4 treatment sessions. Clients who want to lose larger volumes may opt for 6 or more treatment sessions. Sessions are scheduled every 7 – 14 days and each treatment should only take 30-40 minutes with no pain, no downtime, or limitations on your activities!
How long will it take to recover from Exilis® treatment?
Our patients are usually back to their regular activities right after treatment. The procedure is relatively pain-free, but we do suggest drinking lots of water prior to the treatment for best results and to avoid dehydration in targeted areas. There are no post-care considerations other than continued hydration.
When will I see results?
Exilis® results are long lasting and though you may see immediate results, maximum results are experienced incrementally over 3 to 6 months after the last treatment. Maximum results are seen at three months post series.
Does an Exilis treatment hurt?
No, Exilis® doesn’t hurt per say, but could be uncomfortable especially as applied to certain sensitive regions. Patients typically report a warm sensation as the cooling device prevents most discomfort and makes Exilis® safe for all skin types.
