Exilis Vs Zeltiq? Which Would You Recommend?

I'm 164cm tall, 60kg, 38yrs & mother of 2 children. So I'm in a perfectly healthy weight range, with minimal cellulite & a relatively pleasing shape.I eat well (most of the time), exercise regularly (usually every day), & generally am able to maintain my weight. I do however have small pockets of localized fat that I wish to get rid of, particularly the inner thigh, & the so called banana rolls on the lower half of my buttocks. I still have quite good skin elasticity & an olive complexion.

Exilis vs. Zeltiq


It is difficult to say without looking at an individual's needs and/or particular body type.  Zeltiq works on removing the fat in small bulges/pockets of fat. Depending upon the areas that you need treated, the suction cup used for the Zeltiq may or may not work.  Zeltiq works best on back fat, belly fat, muffin tops and love handles.  Exilis is more of a skin tightening procedure and less of a fat reducing technique.  I would visit an office that does both procedures.  They should have the expertise to evaluate your particular situation and give you the best advice.

Zeltiq vs exilis


As far as I'm aware, the results of Zeltiq's CoolSculpting can be long term as those fat cells that are affected by the freezing, are killed. The energy delivered by Exilis may temporarily reduce the fat content in the adipocytes.

Exilis versus Coolsculpting


Both procedures work and actually have slightly different indications and results based upon each persons skin type, location of fat and laxity of skin involved. I would suggest evaluation by a physician that performs both procedures.
