Exilis is a new, high-end, high-tech method of destroying fat and cellulite below the skin, and of tightening lax skin.
It’s an FDA-approved, safe and effective treatment that uses radiofrequency, or RF, waves to rejuvenate and re-contour desired areas of the face and body, and it’s gaining popularity as a non-surgical alternative to surgical liposuction. Since it was created specifically to reduce and tighten loose or wrinkled skin, it ranks among the best options at Renew You MD for skin tightening offered at either our Houston or Lake Jackson locations. The loss of undesired fat in the same areas is another benefit of Exilis. Contact us today to learn more!
When To Consider It
Exilis is suitable for all skin types and is best for reducing fat and tightening skin in specific areas of the face and body, leaving noticeable but natural-looking changes behind. The thermal or heat energy created during the process also stimulates the skin’s deep collagen production, resulting in tighter, younger-looking skin.
Areas suitable for treatment include the face and under-eye bags, neck, jowls, abdomen, arms, thighs, buttocks, love handles, and fat and skin rolls on the back — essentially, anywhere that loose skin and stubborn fat is hampering your desired appearance. Exilis is safe to use just about anywhere on the body because of its innovative cooling system, which prevents skin damage that can sometimes be a risk with other heating technologies.
What To Expect
Exilis uses a monopolar RF and advanced cooling system to deeply penetrate into fat cells, heating and destroying them, without damaging or burning your skin. The equipment used is carefully monitored for temperature control to deliver the best results with no harm to the patient’s skin and a painless overall procedure. Most patients report a warm sensation during the treatment. Often, Dr. Yarish will recommend a series of Exilis treatments, a few weeks apart, for best and lasting results.
What Happens Afterward
Treatments are short, between 30 to 45 minutes, and can be scheduled just a few weeks apart.
There is no downtime following the procedure, and patients can return to normal activity right away. Hydration and exercise are very important, as they boost your body’s natural metabolism to dispose of the damaged fat cells effectively. Full results can be expected in a period of three to six months following your last treatment. Results are expected to be long-lasting, but fat lost with Exilis can be regained over time if, for instance, additional weight is gained.
If you have any questions or would like a consultation to determine whether Exilis is the best treatment for you, our staff and Dr. Yarish are on hand to create a personal treatment plan for you in our Houston or Lake Jackson offices.
