Many patients come to Des Moines Plastic Surgery™ seeking nonsurgical options for skin tightening of the face and body, EXILIS offers you this exciting opportunity!
EXILIS can help treat and improve all areas of the face and body and delivers predictable, lasting, and measurable results. The EXILIS Elite is truly a technological breakthrough in nonsurgical skin tightening.
What does Exilis do and how does it work?
The sophisticated and proprietary software and engineering in the Exilis device is what makes it so exceptional. Exilis elite delivers safe radiofrequency (RF) energy to heat the underlying targeted tissue (the dermis and fat). Uniform, precise heating of this tissue results in consistent, predictable formation of new collagen and subsequent tightening of the skin. RF energy has been used for years to tighten skin but Exilis has just perfected the process to develop a truly exceptional device. Exilis at Des Moines Plastic Surgery™ will give you the nonsurgical results that you desire in a safe, predictable manner.
Is RF energy safe and is it new technology?
The Exilis Elite is clinically tested, FDA approved and extensively researched and supported by medical research. No harm to skin, fat, tissue or body organs has been shown by biochemical testing. The Exilis Elite is a tremendous leap in technology compared to previous generation devices on the market today.
Does the procedure hurt?
Heating of the skin is the goal of the Exilis Elite treatment. Most patients will experience a mild, tolerable warming sensation which is normal. No anesthetic is needed. After the treatment, there is no pain and no downtime. Patients resume normal activities including exercise.
How long do the treatments take?
Most treatments can be completed in less than an hour depending on the size of the area being treated.
How many treatments are necessary?
6 treatments are necessary spaced 7 to 10 days apart.
What areas of the face can be treated?
Any area of the face can be treated. The entire face and neck can be treated at one time for overall skin tightening effect. Under eye areas can be treated alone to help reduce under eye skin laxity and bags. The neck and jowls are the most common face area treated. The results are truly amazing for a nonsurgical, noninvasive procedure.
What about areas on the body?
The stomach, love handles, inner and outer thighs, arms, bra liner, knees, and chest can be treated. The Exilis will provide skin tightening in all these areas. It is not intended for severe skin looseness.
Can it be done after surgery?
Absolutely. Many patients will get Exilis treatments to maintain or extend the results of surgical face/neck lifts, liposuction, tummy tucks, and after CoolSculpting.
