Seeing is believing, and when it comes to Exilis therapy, the results truly speak for themselves. Many patients look for non-invasive ways to keep their skin looking youthful and firm, whether it be on their face or other parts of their body that they would like to focus on.
As we age, our skin goes through many changes, including becoming rougher and more fragile. With age, skin loses elastin, the elastic tissue in the skin that keeps it looking youthful and supple, and becomes more prone to sagging.
Exilis therapy can also be used for fat reduction. This treatment allows patients to target areas where there is stubborn fat without having to go through intense, invasive surgery. These areas can include the face, neck, arms, and thighs.
For many patients, the thought of going through invasive surgery causes fear and anxiety. With Exilis therapy, patients can still reap the benefits of surgery without the stress thanks to the Exilis Ultra 360 device, which uses ultrasound and radio frequency energy.
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.
How many Exilis therapy treatments will I need?
Each patient is different, and based on each person’s goals, the number of treatments needed can vary greatly. Generally speaking, patients will need about 4-6 treatments, each one week apart, to see the results they are looking for. Each in-office session typically takes about 30 minutes to complete.
What are the pros of Exilis therapy?
There are many benefits of Exilis therapy, including helping patients slim areas of their face and body that are otherwise not being reduced by following a healthy diet and exercise. The process is generally pain-free or only involving minimal pain, though some patients might feel mild discomfort. Since the treatment is non-invasive, it means there is zero recovery time–you don’t have to worry about taking time off from work and other responsibilities to rest and recover like you would need to after surgery.
What are the cons of Exilis therapy?
Depending on how much sagging skin a patient has, Exilis therapy might not be the right treatment for them. Some patients require a more intense procedure for the results to be significant enough to notice.
It is also worth noting that Exilis therapy’s effects improve with time, so individuals choosing this treatment method need to have the patience to see their results.
What can I expect during Exilis therapy?
Exilis therapy can be done in-office and in just a few short minutes. You will lie down on a grounding pad, which helps the device direct its energy to the correct place during the procedure. Your doctor will then massage the device over the area you are targeting.
The device first heats up to about 107ºF and then cools down automatically. This allows your doctor to target several layers of skin without burning the surface of your skin. No anesthesia is needed during this procedure, and it is generally very mild pain or painless for patients, depending on his or her pain tolerance. Your skin may be hot to touch after the procedure or appear flushed.
