What is Exilis Elite?
Exilis Elite is a procedure for toning, tightening, and improving texture to sagging skin of the brows, eye area, lower face, jawline, neck, and body. Exilis Elite utilizes radiofrequency technology to gently warm the skin, encouraging new collagen growth over time.
How does Exilis Elite work?
Exilis Elite is a monopolar radiofrequency device with safe electrical energy delivering by the Exilis Elite tip to the skin. A grounding pad is placed on patients' back during the treatment, ensuring safe delivery of the radiofrequency. During treatment, radiofrequency energy flows from the device tip to the skin, warming the skin to approximately 42 to 44 degrees Celsius without compromising treatment comfort. At this temperature, collagen undergoes structural changes. Over a period of weeks to months following treatment, new collagen growth is encouraged, leading to improvement in skin texture, laxity, and even wrinkles.
What areas of the face or body can be treated with Exilis Elite?
Exilis Elite treatment on the face includes area around the eyes, the jowls, lower face, and neck. Exilis Elite on the body tighten skin laxity of the arms, knees, and abdomen may be improved with treatment.
Who will be a suitable good candidate?
Anyone who does not have a pace maker or metallic implant will be a suitable candidate. Patients with relatively good skin elasticity or “spring back” respond more readily to treatment. Younger patients may have more dramatic responses. Patients with poor skin texture may present with modest results or require frequent treatments. Lastly, anyone seeking skin tightening but hoping to avoid discomfort or surgery may benefit from Exilis Elite.
How does it feel?
Treatment with Exilis Elite is comfortable and a single area takes approximately 20 minutes. During treatment, the Exilis Elite tip is constantly gliding over the skin in circles, which feels like a warm roller ball floating over the skin's surface.
Is there any downtime?
Mild redness usually disappear within hours after Exilis Elite treatment. Normal activity can be resume after treatment.
How many treatments are recommended?
A series of treatments are recommended for ideal result. Exilis Elite is typically performed two to four weeks apart.
When will I notice results after treatment?
There is significant tightening seen after treatment followed by further improvement over a period of weeks to months. This is because Exilis Elite works by stimulating new collagen growth, a process called “neocollagenesis,” results take some time to develop. Improving results can be seen within a period of weeks to months.
