Exilis Elite® for Skin Tightening (Face)

 

Exilis Elite® is an award-winning, FDA-approved device that is used to tighten and smoothen loose skin on the face. It is ideal for both men & women in their thirties to sixties, who don't want to undergo a surgical face lift.
 

 

How does Exilis Elite® work?

 

Exilis Elite® uses an advanced form of radiofrequency to heat the deep layers of the skin, whilst protecting the outer layer. Heating in this area, without damaging the outer layers of skin, causes microscopic changes to the tissues and collagen contraction, with subsequent collagen remodelling over the months that pass. Treatments are tolerable, have no healing time and give immediate results. You are able to resume all your usual activities straight after. A series of treatments is usually required for optimal results.
 

How safe is Exilis Elite® for skin tightening?

 

Exilis Elite® is a clinically proven and safe treatment technology. There are rarely any side effects, but some patients may experience a mild redness that subsides 1-2 hours after the treatment.
 

What kind of results can I expect from Exilis Elite® treatments for skin tightening?

 

Immediately following the treatment, your skin will feel tighter, with more tightening improvements appearing gradually over the months after treatment. Exilis Elite® can also be used to enhance a variety of treatments including IPL & laser skin rejuvenation and acne treatment. If there is a significant amount of redundant or sagging skin, often seen in older patients over sixty, combining RF treatments with Botox and Filler treatments, or a surgical face-lift to remove the excess skin, are other options to achieve a better result.
 

How many Exilis Elite® treatments will I need?

 
It is recommended to have a session every 1-2 weeks with an average of 4-6 sessions in a treatment program. In selective cases, 2 intensive sessions over a 2 week period may suffice.
 

How long does each treatment session last?

 

A full-face treatment (which includes the upper neck area) takes 90 minutes. This is completed with a Gentlewaves®LED treatment to improve the skin's healing process.

 

Am I suitable for Exilis Elite® treatments? 

 

Exilis Elite® addresses the following concerns:

 

  • Droopy eyelids/looking tired
  • Flattening of the cheeks
  • Lines from nose to mouth (nasolabial folds)
  • Lines causing corners of the mouth to turn down (marionette lines)
  • Loosening jaw line (jowls)
  • Double chin
  • Loose neck

 

Exilis Elite® is used to tighten the skin and stimulate collagen production, and is best suited to patients with mild to moderate sagging of facial tissues, usually those in their thirties to sixties, with any skin colour. 

 

Are Exilis Elite® treatments painful?

 

Expect to feel a heating sensation during the treatment, which is generally very well tolerated. This is one of the reasons for its popularity.
 

What is the difference between Exilis Elite® and Laser/IPL?

 

Firstly, Exilis Elite®  works by heating up the deeper layers without damaging the skin's surface, and is meant for skin tightening. Laser and IPL work in the upper layers of the skin and is meant for more superficial skin issues such as pigmentation, acne, spider veins, tone and texture.

 

Secondly, Exilis Elite® treatments are suitable for all skin colors, including dark and pigmented skin. Unlike lasers and IPL, Exilis Elite®  energy is "color blind" meaning that it has no affinity to skin pigmentation, such as melanin.
 

Who is not suitable for Exilis Elite® treatments?

 

  • If you have active skin disease or infection in the area treated.
  • If you are pregnant.
  • If you have any metal implants or electrical device in your body e.g. pacemakers
 

How should I prepare for an Exilis Elite® treatment?

 

Please be well-hydrated by drinking at least 10 glasses of water 3 days before, the day of and the day after your treatment. This will result in a more comfortable and efficacious treatment. Additionally, avoid doing anything that will irritate your skin immediately before treatment (e.g. sunbathing). 
 

What should you do after an Exilis Elite® treatment?

 

Generally, no special care is needed after treatment. However it is recommended to increase the application of moisturizing lotions or creams to the treatment area. Use a hydrating mask as often as possible.
