Thank you for your question.The Exiles Elite and Ultrashape technologies are actually used for
different things.The Exiles Elite uses
radiofrequency to help tighten skin with results that tend to be short
term.Ultrashape uses ultrasonic beams
to help disrupt fat cells to help contour the body with more long term
results.I hope this clears things up a
Thanks for your question.Exiles is a radiofrequency treatment that is designed for possible skin
tightening.The results are fairly soft
with Exiles and not long lasting.On the
other hand, Ultrashape is a fat reducing technology that reduces fat cells for
the long term.So, they are totally
different devices designed to do different things.I hope this is helpful.
UltraShape is unique as compared to other non-surgical fat reduction systems because unlike the others which are freezing or heating the fat, UltraShape uses non-thermal pulsed, focused ultrasound to selectively destroy fat.
Thanks for your question. If the areas you are treating are very localized, liposuction might be a better alternative for you. In our practice I find that Ultrashape works best for reducing and contouring stubborn areas of fat, but it doesn't necessarily create a "sculpted" look in every patient. We use it as a tool for patient who exercise moderately and eat a healthy diet but still have pockets of stubborn and pinchable fat around the abdomen, flanks, and thighs. As much as I love our Ultrashape for fat reduction, it doesn't tighten skin. Without photos or a consultation it is hard to give you the best answer, but I suspect you might be a better candidate for liposuction. Best of luck to you!
I find that hi definition contouring works best for shaping small areas, however, there are many options for non invasive treatments such as ultrashape, sculpsure, liposonix, coolsculpting and we combine in our practice radiofrequency treatments to enhance the results. Best, Dr. Emer.
