Exilis for Slimming and Skin Tightening
Exilis eliminates fat, firms skin, reduces wrinkles and combats cellulite. It’s a head-to-toe treatment and also includes vaginal rejuvenation.
How does the Exilis treatment work?
Exilis delivers radiofrequency and ultrasound energy waves as heat below the surface of the skin, safely destroying fat cells, firming skin, and triggering collagen production.
For any adult patient looking for cosmetic improvement on their face and body, the first and only device to simultaneously combine radio frequency and ultrasound to tighten skin AND address body concerns. Multi-award winning, FDA approved with proven clinical results.
This device can treat the full body. Popular areas include saddle bags, stomach, love handles, thighs, face and intimate areas. Treatment for areas of excess fat, skin laxity and firming.
- Facial treatments are recommended 4 – 6 sessions spaced out at once weekly.
- Body treatments are recommended at 4 – 6 sessions spaced out at once weekly.
- Vaginal rejuvenation treatments are done once a week for 3 weeks.
- Labial tightening are done 4-6 sessions once weekly.
Exilis is a non-invasive treatment and can be combined with other non-invasive treatments. Dr Noviova will consult with you for specific treatments.
Each patient responds differently. Some notice improvements immediately following one or two treatment sessions, but most see optimal results after the course has been completed.
It takes at least 90 days for your skin to produce new collagen and 2-3 months for your body to naturally eliminate the damaged fat cells, so you can see full results approx. three months after your final treatment.
Results typically last about two years. This treatment does not prevent weight gain. While destroyed fat cells can’t grow back, remaining fat cells in the area can expand if you gain weight. Maintaining your weight with a healthy diet and regular exercise will help prolong your results.
There are more than 15 peer reviewed studies for Exilis.
Radiofrequency (RF) is an electric current with a positive and a negative poles and the energy travels between the two of them. Our body consists of molecules that are also charged, one side is + charged, the other is – charged. The opposites attract each other, therefore the molecules will try to rotate the minus side to the plus electrode. The polarity of the electrodes changes very quickly (the frequency of Exilis is 3,2MHz therefore the polarity changes 3 200 000 times per second). The molecules become “excited”, the friction of a molecule against another one creates the heat. That is why the RF heats even if the contact is cold.
The heat (controlled and constantly checked) leads to collagen fibres shrinkage and stimulation of new collagen fibres production and skin tightening.
For body treatments with Exilis combination of cooling and heating allows the energy to penetrate to the fat layer and adding fat reduction effect to skin tightening. Facial treatment exhibits only skin tightening without fat reduction.
Fat freezing is an effective way to kill fat cells. One should however know that for fat freezing:
- The results will be seen in 2-3 months after the treatment only
- Some report the treatment as painful either before the treatment or soon after it
- 4-6 total sessions are required using different size of the applicators
- The treatment only works on the tissue that can be sucked between the two freezing panels inside the applicators (that is why pain before the treatment in case of some body areas)
- There is no skin tightening happening during the treatment and therefore the patients need to book the skin tightening treatment too.
- Incidence of PAH – paradoxical adipose hyperplasia is small, however the medicine cannot predict to which patient it will occur. Instead of slimming in the treated area, the body creates more fat cells and the client becomes “wider”.
For BTL Exilis / BTL Vanquish ME – none of the above conditions apply. The slimming results can be measured after the first session in most cases. The reduction after the first session is 1-2 cm only and the patients may not notice it, but it can be measured. This is due to lipolysis, which is shrinking the volume of the fat cells. The biggest volume reduction happens 2-3 months after the first session due to apoptosis, which is death of fat cells and the time necessary to wash out the dead fat cells through the lymphatic system.
The patients feel heat during the treatments but it is not intolerable or painful. 4-6 sessions are required too. BTL Exilis can work anywhere on the body for slimming or skin tightening. BTL Vanquish covers the abdomen from flank to flank and it also covers all thighs or upper arms for slimming results. Both devices tighten skin while killing fat cells / shrinking their size.
