During the Body Contouring session, the Exilis computer-controlled device is guided over the treatment area. Patients feel a warming sensation as the Energy is delivered to the layers of skin. Throughout the Exilis treatment, the machine uses controlled and focussed radio frequency to gradually heat the skin to a target temperature of 42 degrees and keep it there for a specified period of time. This heating has a twofold effect of winding up the loose collagen and also stimulating the fibroblast cells into producing more collagen. This stimulates and strengthens the collagen network to improve skin laxity and texture.
WHICH AREAS CAN I TARGET?
We can target a range of areas with the Exilis Elite including:
- Arm Contouring
- Back Fat Contouring
- Breast Lift
- Knee Contouring
- Neck Contouring

HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL YOU NEED?
The recommended course of treatment is generally two to three sessions, one to two weeks apart. You can have additional treatments if desired. Patients will require a top up treatment 2 years after the last treatment to maintain results.
IS IT SAFE?
Exilis has been tested in clinical studies and proven to be safe and effective. It has been cleared by the FDA in the U.S. for use in dermatologic and aesthetic procedures with indications for non-invasive treatment of laxity and rhytids. Radio frequency and ultrasound have been used for many years in aesthetic medicine and been proven very safe in this time.
Some pinkness on the treated area may last for about 15-30 minutes. There have been no significant side effects reported with Exilis treatment.
