On average women will incur 80% of their sun damage prior to turning 20. At 20, collagen production will decline by 1% per year and skin thickness will decrease roughly 7% every 10 years.
Exilis Elite® is an award-winning, FDA-approved device that is used to tighten and smoothen loose skin on the face. It is ideal for both men & women in their late twenties to sixties, looking for cosmetic improvement on their face and body. Common areas of skin tightening treatment include the eye area, around the mouth, chin area, jaw line, décolleté, arms, knees, abdomen and the intimate areas.
IS THE PROCEDURE SAFE?
Exilis Elite® is a clinically proven and safe treatment technology. There are rarely any side effects, but some patients may experience a mild redness that subsides 1-2 hours after the treatment.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED?
It is recommended to have a session every 1-2 week with an average of 4-6 sessions in a treatment program. In selective cases, 2 intensive sessions over a 2-week period may suffice.
What kind of results can I expect from Exilis Elite® treatments for skin tightening?
Immediately following the treatment, your skin will feel tighter, with more tightening improvements appearing gradually over the months after treatment. Exilis Elite® can also be used to enhance a variety of treatments. If there is a significant amount of redundant or sagging skin, often seen in older patients over sixty, combining RF treatments with Botox and Filler treatments, or a surgical face-lift to remove the excess skin, are other options to achieve a better result.
WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT FEEL LIKE? IS IT PAINFUL?
No, the treatment should not be painful. The BTL EXILIS provides the most advanced non-surgical solution, treating your face, body and intimate parts safely, efficiently, and without pain. Most patients describe the sensation of the therapy as being comparable to that of a pain-free, hot stone massage. The treatment is performed in a lying position so you can easily relax during the procedure.
ARE THERE ANY SIDE EFFECTS OR DOWNTIME?
The whole BTL EXILIS procedure is non-invasive and requires no recovery time. You can easily have the treatment during your lunch break and return to your daily activities immediately.
HOW FAST WILL I SEE RESULTS?
This very much depends on the treated area, its condition and other factors. You may see visible improvements after a single session. Results will typically improve over a 3-month follow up period.
WILL I NEED TO CHANGE MY LIFESTYLE OR FOLLOW A DEFINED DIET?
You will be required to drink plenty of water, up to 3 litres, to ensure optimum results. Hydrated skin responds better to the Exilis Elite current, so we advise to arrive for your appointments well hydrated.
