Clear Lake Dermatologists Serve Patients Requiring the Exilis™ in Webster, League City, Friendswood, and Houston, TX
Need A Little Help Fighting the Signs of Aging? Take a Look at Exilis™!
Exilis™ is a new and innovative treatment used to tighten the skin and spark your body’s natural collagen production. Clear Lake Dermatology is proud to offer Exilis™ to the residents of Webster, League City, Friendswood, and Houston. This technology is used to help reduce the effects of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles. The FDA-approved, non-invasive laser treatment attacks the sagging skin in the cheeks, jawline and neck to produce a smooth, contoured look that takes years off your face! In addition to contouring the face, Exilis™ can be used anywhere on the body where you have cellulite or sagging skin.
How Does Exilis™ Work?
The science behind Exilis™ is a state-of-the-art radiofrequency technology that focuses on shrinking fat cells and stimulating the natural production of collagen. This non-invasive treatment tightens the skin and adds volume to create younger, healthier looking skin.
During the procedure, deep layers of the skin are continuously controlled by heating and cooling that simultaneously reduces unwanted fat cells and tones the skin. It requires no downtime, no anesthesia, and no numbing medicine.
Exilis™, like many other body contouring devices, is not a method to be used for weight loss. The device is used to target smaller areas of fat that have not responded to a healthy diet and regular exercise routine.
What Should You Expect from an Exilis™ Treatment?
A typical treatment will last less than an hour, and you will be able to go back to your normal activities as soon as your appointment is finished. You may feel a mild heating of the skin during the process, but the cooling mechanism on the underside of the device will prevent the unit from getting too hot.
Afterward, you may notice a slight redness where the applicator was placed, but this will go away quickly without any damage to the skin. You can expect your skin to be totally back to normal within 30 minutes after your appointment.
It is recommended that you receive at least four Exilis™ treatments to receive the best results. The treatments will be spaced about two weeks apart.
Keeping the body hydrated before and after your Exilis™ treatment will help you to get the best results possible. Taking a walk or doing some light exercise after the procedure will also boost your outcome and help you to see results quicker.
While you may begin to see effects of Exilis™ right away, the maximum results will be able to be seen within six to eight weeks and can last for up to two years with the proper exercise and nutrition.
Will Exilis™ Work for You?
It is important to note that Exilis™ will not give you the same results as a traditional plastic surgery procedure such as a tummy tuck or liposuction.
Exilis™ is recommended for those who are just beginning to notice mild sagging skin in the cheeks, jawline, and neck, who are in good physical condition and who have targeted areas of cellulite that won’t go away.
Exilis™ can be used in conjunction with injectable fillers such as Juvederm® or Restylane®, if needed, to assist in eliminating wrinkles.
What is the Cost of Exilis™?
The cost of Exilis™ treatments vary depending on the amount of treatments you will need for your target area. Your provider will discuss your treatment options as well as the costs involved during your initial and private consultation. You will also be provided information on the financing options that are available.
