Exilis Elite is a state-of-the-art energy treatment device that the team at Petrin Dermatology uses for skin tightening. The device includes two handpieces: one for facial treatments and one for body treatments. The Exilis Elite delivers radiofrequency energy combined with ultrasound energy and a soothing cooling effect to the skin in your specified treatment areas.
The heat from the radiofrequency energy dismantles the network of collagen within your skin. Collagen is a protein fiber that keeps your skin strong and firm. The disruption from Exilis Elite causes your collagen fibers to start rebuilding and become stronger, which makes your skin tighter and firmer on the surface.
Additionally, the radiofrequency energy disrupts fat cells in the areas that you target. In the weeks following your treatment, your body absorbs and eliminates many of your fat cells.
Exilis Elite can treat fine lines on your face, deep wrinkles and skin folds, and everything in between. While the treatment isn’t a substitute for natural weight loss, you can also use it to target pockets of unwanted, hard-to-lose fat that you’d like to reduce. The overall tightening effect makes you look slimmer and more contoured in your face or body.
Specific features that you can target and improve with Exilis Elite include:
Your provider at Petrin Dermatology designs treatment with your specific goals in mind. They may advise you to have 2-6 treatment sessions to get the results you want.
Generally, the results of a treatment with Exilis Elite are semipermanent. However, your skin doesn’t magically stop aging, so you’ll eventually see your wrinkles reappear with time. You can continue getting Exilis Elite and other skin-tightening treatments in the future if you’d like to maintain the results.
Any fat cells that go away because of an Exilis Elite treatment are gone for good. As long as you continue living a healthy lifestyle and don’t gain a bunch of weight in the future, your body stays contoured permanently.
