|What is EXILIS Radiofrequency Treatment?The Exilis is a radiofrequency (RF) device that delivers high energy in a controlled fashion to the dermal/ subcutaneous layers of the skin. Exilis is NOT A LASER. There is no skin peeling, pigment change or prolonged healing associated with its use. The RF energy heats the undersurface of the skin causing collagen remodeling.
What will EXILIS treatment do?
EXILIS uses monopolar radiofrequency energy to heat tissue causing tissue tightening and body contouring. Advanced Skin Cooling allows EXILIS to target heating of tissue from 2mm to 2.5cm in depth. So, deeper tissue such as fat and collagen can be targeted at various depths. Removal of ½ inch to 2 inches in circumference of the treatment area occurs depending on treatment site and amount and depth of fat present.
RF is colorblind and can treat ALL skin types and sun tanned skin.
How does work?
RF energy is used to deliver volumetric heating to tissue. This creates rapid (2-3 million times/second) movement of molecules within tissue. This movement creates heat. The sophisticated cooling system protects the upper layers of skin, allowing the heat to be deposited where it is needed for the desired effect from 2 mm to 2.5 cm in depth. The treatment tissue is monitored by a real time temperature sensor which ensures controlled and painless heat in the deeper tissue.
Skin tightening requires heating of the superficial layers of the skin whereas fat reduction and contouring often needs deeper heating. Treatment depth is based on the amount and location of the fat. The EXILIS is versatile and can treat patients with different needs.

What will my treatment consist of?
You are not required to do anything special prior to your treatment session. If you are having a body treatment please drink lots of water before, day of and 2 days after treatments to help improve lymphatic drainage.
Skin should be hair free. Men undergoing facial treatments must shave the morning of the session.
You may continue all medications, supplements and vitamins during your treatment period.
Wear comfortable clothing on the day of your treatment to allow easy access to treatment areas.
No make-up, creams or lotions on skin; no jewelry.
What to Expect
The procedure is gentle, non-invasive, and safe. There should be minimal or no discomfort, however this varies from patient to patient and depends on the depth of the treatment. A ground pad will be applied opposite to the treatment site. Mineral/baby oil is applied to the treatment site. Treatment time approx. 6 – 15 minutes per area (approx 5’’ x 7’’). The fat is rapidly heated to a therapeutic temp and will be maintained for 5-10 minutes. The settings are adjusted to keep you comfortable while maintaining the optimal treatment for results. There is NO PAIN associated with your treatment, only a moderate to intense sensation of heat which tells you that the treatment is achieving its goal. There is NO ANESTHETIC required with EXILIS treatments.
What will I look like immediately after an EXILIS treatment?
Redness and some local swelling may appear and will resolve soon after treatment. You may feel a deep heat sensation for up to 24 hours after the treatment.

For fat reduction:
How do I care for my skin after the treatment?
Drink lots of water before and after your treatment to help improve lymphatic drainage. Walking & light physical activity after treatment are recommended to increase lymphatic drainage and removal of fat.
You may see effects of the treatment after your first visit, but you will not see full results until after 4 to 6 treatments. For skin laxity, you may not see full results until 3 to 6 months after your final treatment.
Sun exposure DOES NOT affect the results of your EXILIS treatment so you may be tan when you have the treatment and you may tan following any treatment session, but this is not encouraged as UV light breaks down collagen. The EXILIS device may be used safely on any skin type or color.
