As medical technology advances, the number of treatments available for cosmetic purposes continues to increase. Keeping abreast of these developments can be a challenge. Here we answer some Exilis questions about this revolutionary cosmetic RF treatment.
What Is Exilis?
Exilis non-surgical body contouring treatment uses radio frequency (RF) energy for skin tightening, skin smoothing and removal of unwanted fat. This FDA-approved procedure can be used as a non-surgical solution for body contouring and remodeling treatments.
How Does Exilis Work?
Not to be confused with laser treatments, Exilis uses radio waves to reduce fat cells while simultaneously stimulating increased collagen production. This combination leads to smoother, firmer contours in the treatment area.
How Do I Prepare for My Exilis Procedure?
Exilis is an outpatient procedure that doesn’t require any significant preparation. You can plan on returning to your normal routine right away, as there’s no downtime required after your treatment either.
How Long Will Exilis Take?
Each Exilis session lasts about 20 minutes but your total appointment time depends on the number of body areas being treated. For optimal results, you will be advised to schedule follow-up sessions every 7 to 14 days for a total of 4 sessions.
How Long Will the Results Last?
After completing all your Exilis sessions, your final results for fat reduction should develop by about 2 months later while skin tightening will continue for 5 months. Exilis is known for delivering long-lasting results, as long as you continue prioritizing your health.
Results are expected to be long-term as long as you maintain a healthy lifestyle and avoid weight gain.
Are There Any Exilis Side Effects?
Exilis is a non-invasive treatment so there are little to no side effects. You may experience some redness after your session, which should fade after about 30 minutes. Exilis is contraindicated for anyone with metal implants or a pacemaker, and for pregnant or nursing women.
