Exilis Elite is a leading non-surgical treatment for skin that has become loose, saggy and wrinkled. Exilis is highly coveted by individuals that would like to tighten skin after pregnancy, fluctuation in weight or the effects of aging. The treatment is comfortable, quick and does not use needles or anesthesia. Results can be seen in as few as four treatment sessions.
If you are interested in enjoying younger-looking skin without surgery, Dr. Douglas Grace invites you to schedule an informational Exilis consultation with the laser specialist at his plastic surgery practice in Burlington, Ontario.
How Does Exilis Elite Work?
Exilis uses targeted monopolar radiofrequency energy to reduce wrinkles and tighten loose skin. It has also been shown to dissolve unwanted body fat, and can be a good option for individuals that have mild fat deposits but are not candidates for liposuction. That’s why it’s important for patients to visit our Burlington liposuction clinic to determine candidacy.
The radiofrequency energy heats the skin, sparking the tightening and firming of collagen. (Collagen is the protein responsible for smooth, youthful-looking skin.) The non-surgical treatment is FDA-cleared and clinically tested for safety and efficacy. Exilis can be used to treat virtually any area of the face and body.
Candidates for Exilis
Suitable candidates for treatment with Exilis are bothered by any of the following:
- Noticeable wrinkles and lines
- Loose or saggy skin
- Pockets of unwanted body fat
Exilis is a great treatment for individuals that have cosmetic concerns but either do not want or do not need invasive surgery. It can provide noticeable results without any incisions, anesthesia or recovery downtime.
Exilis treatments are performed at the Grace Clinic’s Burlington office. A treatment session typically takes 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area. Treatment is very well tolerated and patients feel little discomfort.
During an Exilis treatment session, the computer-controlled device is slowly guided over the area of wrinkles, loose skin, fat or cellulite. The device emits pulses of radiofrequency energy, which penetrate the surface of the skin and heat up the deeper layers of the skin, while simultaneously keeping the surface of the skin cool and comfortable. A built-in thermometer helps the laser specialist maintain a constant tolerable temperature for the patient, minimizing any discomfort.
Recovering from Exilis
Exilis treatment does not require any recovery. Patients can immediately return to their normal activities with very few side effects. The treated area might look slightly red after treatment, but the redness disappears within a few hours. For the best cosmetic results, patients are encouraged to drink plenty of water and participate in gentle physical activity such as walking.
Does Exilis treatment hurt?
No, Exilis treatment is not painful. It does not involve incisions, injections or anesthesia. Most patients describe feeling only a warming sensation during the treatment.
Is Exilis treatment safe?
Yes, the Exilis technology has been cleared by the FDA for safety. Studies have confirmed that Exilis treatments are safe and that side effects are rare.
What areas of the body can Exilis treat?
Exilis can be used to treat loose skin, wrinkles, excess fat and cellulite on the:
- Love handles
- Upper back (along the bra line)
How many treatments will I need?
The number of Exilis treatments you need depends on the size of the treatment area(s). In general, the larger the area or looser the skin, the more treatments needed. Our laser specialist can give you a better estimate during a consultation and examination of the problem area(s).
