Exilis Ultra is an outstanding treatment for skin tightening that combines two of the best technologies available for this purpose: radiofrequency (as found in Thermage) and ultrasound (as featured in Ultherapy). That means you get the best of both worlds!

Those two forms of energy heat up the collagen in the skin causing it to contract leading to skin tightening in the treated area. They also stimulate collagen production which will lead to further tightening visible within 4-6 months so you get an immediate and long-term benefit. The most common areas I treat are the eyelids, lower face (for the jowls), neck, and abdomen but any body part can be treated, including private areas. It also works well for cellulite especially when combines with our Cellutone treatment.

The treatment feels like a hot stone massage and is usually performed every other week for a total of four treatments. There is zero downtime and you can return to your regular activities immediately. There are no short term side effects other than the sensation of heat and there are no long term side effects other than tightening of the skin! No aftercare is necessary though I do recommend a combination of skin care products to further boost and support collagen production. There results aren't permanent; we are simply turning back the clock but the clock will keep ticking. After your series of four, I recommend maintenance treatments once or twice a year depending on your age, genetics, starting point, and lifestyle considerations. With all the amazing treatment options at our disposal, there has never been a better time in history to grow old gracefully!

Duration of effect of Exilis

We explain to our patients that results of Exilis are not permanent and typically require maintenance treatments at about eight months after initial session. Generally effects last 8-12 months with one session of five treatments.

Exilis does not have the ability to stop the aging process. Therefore, it is suggested that one additional treatment every 12-18 months be completed in order to maintain results.

Exilis can not stop the aging process however, on average, the tightening of the tissue and collagen production in the face is lasting approximately 1 year. 

Hope this helps.
