During the session, the Exilis computer-controlled device is guided over the treatment area. Patients feel a warming sensation as the Energy is delivered to the deeper layers of skin. The ability to focus the Energy on specific areas at the targeted depth of penetration makes Exilis a highly effective aesthetic solution. The device engages the cooling system to heat deep tissue as its constant monitoring of the skin's temperature facilitates a comfortable, even treatment. To favorably influence the upper skin layers, only controlled heating is engaged to redefine loose skin and smooth wrinkles. Thus, the Exilis causes the collagen supporting tissue to remodel, thereby stimulating and strengthening the collagen network to improve skin laxity and texture.
The recommended course of treatment is generally two to three sessions, one every two weeks. You can have additional treatments if desired. Patients will require a top up treatment 2 years after the Exilis treatment.
Exilis has been tested in clinical studies and proven to be safe and effective. It has been cleared by the FDA in the U.S. for use in dermatologic and aesthetic procedures with indications for non-invasive treatment of wrinkles and rhytids. Radiofrequancy and ultrasound have been used for many years in aesthetic medicine and have been proven very safe in this time.
