What is Exilis therapy?
Exilis Therapy is a non-invasive treatment cleared in 2009 by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This revolutionary treatment uses a device that uses ultrasound and radiofrequency energy to get rid of fat cells in stubborn areas (such as arms and thighs). Another notable use for the device is to help stimulate new collagen production, leading to more youthful-looking skin.
Is Exilis therapy right for me?
Since Exilis Therapy is an alternative to surgery, some patients may feel like the results using the Exilis device is not dramatic enough. It is essential to talk to your doctor about your goals to ensure that the correct treatment option is used.
For patients who are already well on their way to reaching their goal weight and want some extra help in “problem areas,” Exilis therapy can be an excellent treatment option. For a treatment option that does not involve surgery, Exilis therapy delivers significant results.
How Exilis Can Help
#1: Tightening Skin in the Face
One way Exilis therapy can help patients with their skin elasticity is by targeting areas on their face. Popular places where patients might use Exilis therapy include the area around their eyes and their jawline. As we age, the skin around our eyes develops fine lines and wrinkles. Since the skin around our eyes is much thinner than in other areas of our face, it tends to be the area where more laxity happens. There are more fine lines, wrinkles, and loose skin around the eyes because the tissue under your eyes naturally has less fat or muscle. These soft tissues help keep the skin looking tighter but anatomically, there is less in this area.
Exilis is an all-natural alternative to surgery that stimulates new collagen, thus looking more youthful by tightening the skin. The primary benefit of using Exilis therapy is that it does not require any incisions, injection, or recovery time.
#2: Tightening Skin on the Neck
It’s always been said that the easiest way to tell a person’s age is by looking at their neck. With age, the skin around the neck begins to lose elasticity, giving it the appearance of being “saggy.” There are many reasons why someone might have loose skin around their neck, including aging, weight loss, pregnancy, and illness.
Did you know that carrying extra weight can lead to the breakdown of collagen and elastin fibers in your skin? This makes it harder for your skin to tighten up, even when you do toning exercises after undergoing transformational weight loss. Patients who have lost a significant amount of weight may find that Exilis therapy can help improve their skin texture on and around their neck.

#3: Body Contouring Without Surgery
There are many different reasons why someone may have sagging skin. Pregnancy is one way that women can develop sagging skin, especially if she is carrying multiples. Women who have more than one baby, such as those carrying twins and triplets, are at higher risk of developing sagging skin than just carrying one baby. The mother’s age can also affect whether or not her skin can “snap back” after her delivery.
For patients close to their goal weight and are just looking for extra help with the areas they have the most stubborn fat in, Exilis therapy can help. This painless, in-office procedure can reduce cellulite’s look to improve texture and slim regions such as the thighs and arms. Exilis is a revolutionary treatment because technology encourages your body to produce its collagen and elastin, making it a much more natural option.
