Body Sculpting Q & A
What is Exilis Ultra?
Exilis Ultra is a cosmetic treatment that utilizes state-of-the-art radio frequency and ultrasound technologies to tighten wrinkled skin and shrink stubborn pockets of fat. Targeted radio waves heat tissue deep beneath the skin while keeping the skin’s surface safe and cool. This process shrinks unwanted fat cells and stimulates the formation of new collagen. Exilis Ultra is the only FDA-approved machine to use both radio frequency and ultrasound modalities.
What areas of the body can be treated with Exilis Ultra?
Exilis Ultra can be used almost anywhere on the body that tighter skin and/or fat reduction is desired. It is especially safe for facial treatments. Common treatment areas include the face, stomach, love handles, jowls, thighs, hips, buttocks, neck, arms, and hands.
What is an Exilis Ultra treatment session like?
The Exilis Ultra procedure is pain-free and requires no anesthetic. Patients often describe an intense warming sensation in the treatment area, similar to a hot stone massage. The entire procedure is complete in 20 to 30 minutes, and patients can return to their normal activities that same day. It is important to drink lots of water in the days before and after treatment, and exercise following treatment will enhance results.
How many Exilis Ultra treatments does it take to see results?
While some people will experience visible results after only a few treatments, most patients see the best results after 4 to 6 treatments. Treatments are usually spaced 1 to 2 weeks apart to give the body time to flush out fat and form new collagen.
With a healthy diet and adequate exercise, results can last a long period of time. Some patients desire touch-up treatments after 12 to 18 months.
What kind of results can be expected with Exilis Ultra treatments?
While many patients are very happy with Exilis Ultra results, it is not liposuction and may not be the best option for individuals desiring dramatic body reshaping. However, Exilis Ultra is a safe, non-invasive option best for patients who want to treat loose, wrinkled skin or mild to moderate fat deposits.
