Patients are often skeptical of non-invasive skin treatments, which is why it´s important for us to explain the science behind it. It is important to note that Exilis is FDA-cleared for improving skin laxity and the appearance of wrinkles, and a majority of Exilis patients also report a reduction in fat volume. Fat deposits form due to metabolically inactive cells. The heat emitted by the Exilis device causes the targeted fat cells to break down (a process called lipolysis) and disperse. The thermal energy also boosts the body´s natural ability to produce collagen; not only will your fat cell volume decrease, but your skin will tighten and become younger-looking.
