You’ve probably heard about freezing your fat off with CoolSculpting®, but you may not have heard of heating fat and tightening your skin with Exilis technology. Exilis’ monopolar radiofrequency and advanced cooling system allows for deep penetration within the fat cells without the risk of burning your skin. This innovative technology is non-invasive and safe for all skin types. Patients will see improvement after just one treatment session, but we usually suggest a package of four treatments spaced a couple of weeks apart to produce maximum results.
While there is no downtime associated with Exilis treatment, it is recommended that patients maintain, if not increase, their physical activity following each session. By engaging in exercise and continuing to remain hydrated after Exilis, skin tightening patients ensure that their metabolic exchange remains high: speeding the reduction of fat volume and skin laxity.
Patients are often skeptical of non-invasive skin treatments, which is why it’s important for us to explain the science behind it. It is important to note that Exilis is FDA-cleared for improving skin laxity and the appearance of wrinkles, and a majority of Exilis patients also report a reduction in fat volume. Fat deposits form due to metabolically inactive cells. The heat emitted by the Exilis device causes the targeted fat cells to break down (a process called lipolysis) and disperse. The thermal energy also boosts the body’s natural ability to produce collagen; not only will your fat cell volume decrease, but your skin will tighten and become younger-looking.
The biggest advantage of the Exilis equipment is its safety. Previous fat reduction technologies worked similarly but were unable to penetrate deep enough without harming the patient’s skin. Exilis comes equipped with DTC (Dermal Temperature Control) and EFC (Energy Flow Control). The DTC system ensures the patient’s skin is left unharmed. It even keeps track of the skin’s temperature and allows us to adjust the machine’s temperature accordingly. The EFC system allows for more efficient and consistent results: eliminating unpredictable strengths of pulsed light emitted by similar machines. The machine also pauses every thirty seconds so your medical technician can take an accurate skin temperature, minimizing the risk of any patient discomfort.

Exilis’s built-in cooling device makes it safe for reducing lax skin and excess fat anywhere on the body, including the face. Exilis can even improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face.
Multiple treatment sessions are not necessary, but most patients prefer multiple sessions for maximum benefits. The number of cosmetic treatments necessary is determined by the patient’s specific needs, but we typically suggest four sessions with a few weeks between each session. A consultation is the best way to provide an answer to this question.
Exilis patients are usually back to their regular activities right after treatment. The procedure is pain-free, but we do suggest drinking lots of water prior to the treatment to avoid dehydration.
No, Exilis doesn’t hurt. Patients report a warm sensation, but the cooling device prevents any discomfort and makes Exilis is safe for all skin types.
Like other body contouring procedures, the cost of Exilis depends on the patient's specific needs. A patient who only desires facial rejuvenation with Exilis will pay less than a patient who wants to treat their tummy, flanks, and legs because the treatment area is smaller. A consultation is the best way for us to give patients an accurate price estimate, so schedule your consultation today.
