reliable cosmetic dermatology - Charlotte, NC

Youthful appearance for eyes and skin

Are you aware that there is a reliable cosmetic dermatology procedure that can rejuvenate skin around the eyes, face, and neck without skin peeling? Are you tired of having to pull your skin so you can apply eyeshadow smoothly? Ballantyne dermatologists offer the EXILIS™ aesthetic system, as a non-surgical solution for reducing fine lines and tightening skin. Exilis is not a laser, it is a radiofrequency device that delivers high energy to the subcutaneous layers of the skin. The treatment does not involve peeling, or prolonged healing. It involves heat treatment to the undersurface of the skin. This stimulates the production of collagen, tightening the skin around your eyes, face, and neck.

The benefits of Exilis

Exilis is popular with many patients because it is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that can provide optimal results with no downtime and no pain. After treatment, some redness and local swelling may appear for a short time. Some patients report feeling a deep heat sensation for up to 24 hours after the treatment. If your procedure involves treatment of the lower face or chin, you may have some tenderness in the area for a few hours. Treatment of the eyes may result in minor swelling. Eye treatment patients are encouraged to sleep on two pillows for 24-48 hours after treatment.

The most common treatment areas for skin tightening with Exilis are:

  • Crow’s feet around the eyes
  • Forehead
  • Jowls
  • Chin
  • Cheeks
  • Mouth
  • Neck
  • Upper chest

Exilis™ is an FDA approved treatment that has proven to safely and effectively rejuvenate skin through its patented heating and cooling technology.

Preparing for Exilis™ treatment

The first step is to schedule a consultation with a dermatologist in the Ballantyne area of Charlotte. You can also visit their website for more information, as well as before and after pictures. There are no special preparations required prior to your treatment session. The doctors advise that you drink lots of water for two days before and after a body treatment. This will help to improve lymphatic drainage. Your skin should be hair free, and men who undergoing facial treatments must shave the morning of the session. There are no restrictions regarding the use of medications, supplements and vitamins during your treatment period. Wear comfortable clothing that will allow easy access to treatment areas on the day of your treatment. Be sure to avoid the use of make-up, creams, lotions, or jewelry. You may notice improvement after your first visit, but you will not see full results until after 4 to 6 treatments or until 3 to 6 months after your final treatment
