What is the Exilis Ultra™?
The Exilis Ultra™ is the first non-invasive device that utilizes both radiofrequency and ultrasound energy for skin tightening treatments. This combination of techniques results in skin tightening therapy that is safer, more comfortable, and more effective than both traditional ultrasound or radiofrequency treatments. The Exilis Ultra™ can be used to tighten nearly any area of the skin, including the face, chest, back, buttocks, legs, arms, and abdomen.
How Does it Work?
The Exilis Ultra™ uses both the power of radiofrequency and ultrasound energy to stimulate skin tightening and rejuvenation. During a typical procedure, a combination of both of these energies is aimed at the treatment area. Both the radiofrequency and ultrasound energy pass through the uppermost layers of the skin and are absorbed as heat by its lower, more foundational layers. This triggers the body’s natural healing response, stimulating the circulation of blood and causing the creation of collagen, a major structural protein in the skin. Over time, this healing response results in tighter, healthier, younger-looking skin.
During treatment, the temperature of the skin’s surface is carefully monitored to ensure that it doesn’t get too hot. This careful attention to the temperature of the skin’s surface is part of the reason why Exilis Ultra™ treatments rarely feature extensive downtime or discomfort. Additionally, the combination of both of these energies also allows for a quick treatment time that makes it easier for the skin to remain at a safe, level temperature.
What can I Expect from an Exilis Ultra™ Skin Tightening Treatment?
Unlike many similar treatments, no anesthesia is required for Exilis Ultra™ treatments. Most patients report that treatment feels like a hot stone massage. Typically, this procedure takes between 20-40 minutes to complete depending on the area being treated.
While patients can usually see some changes in their amount of skin laxity after a single Exilis Ultra™ treatment, most undergo three sessions to get lasting, dramatic results. Because it takes time for new skin cells and collagen to form, patients gradually see the results of their treatment over the course of a few months.
