When using Exilis™ for skin tightening, the goal is to heat up the deeper layers of the skin to stimulate fibroblast cells to produce more collagen. The heat is delivered in the form of radiofrequency bursts that penetrate the skin, without the need for incisions or surgery.
There are several reasons why treatments with this device have become so popular with California Skin Institute patients.
Firstly, there is no down time after an Exilis™ procedure. There may be some mild redness, but this will dissipate quickly.
Secondly, Exilis™ can be used on the face as well as the body. This allows for skin tightening on the face, neck, arms, legs, and the chest. It provides a comprehensive treatment plan that can improve overall aesthetic appearance and boost the patient’s self-confidence.
Lastly, a great feature of Exilis™ for skin tightening is that it can produce long term improvement after the initial set of treatments has been completed. In fact, the most dramatic improvements appear several months after treatment, when the body has had time to produce more collagen.
