How Exilis® Works

Exilis employs a combination of ultrasound and radiofrequency (RF) energy that work together to heat the deeper layers of skin. The ultrasound energy gently heats the tissue, causing micro-vibrations that disrupt the fat cells without harming the surrounding tissue. RF energy complements the ultrasound by providing a controlled amount of thermal energy to the same targeted areas. This heat is absorbed by the skin cells, causing immediate contraction of the collagen fibers and stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin, which are essential for firm, youthful skin. The heat also increases the metabolic rate of fat cells, accelerating their breakdown, and they are then naturally eliminated by the body.

This dual approach can be customized to treat skin laxity alone for areas where we do not want to remove fat and improves the surface of the skin. We are also able to address stubborn fat deposits if necessary, offering a comprehensive solution for skin rejuvenation and contouring that goes beyond what one technology can provide.


Why Choose Exilis®?

Exilis is a versatile and noninvasive treatment option for those looking to tighten their skin and improve their body contours. The treatment is FDA-approved and employs a unique combination of ultrasound and radiofrequency technology. This two-pronged approach heats the deep tissues and stimulates collagen production, effectively tackling various skin and body shape concerns — from smoothing fine lines and wrinkles to tightening sagging skin and reducing unwanted fat. With minimal to no downtime and a strong safety profile, Exilis offers a convenient and effective solution for those seeking noticeable improvements without the need for surgical intervention.

Is Exilis® Safe?

Exilis is recognized for its excellent safety record. The technology has been rigorously tested and approved by the FDA, ensuring it meets stringent safety standards. It incorporates advanced cooling features to protect the surface of the skin during the heating process, minimizing the risk of burns and allowing for a more comfortable experience. The precise control of energy delivery promotes safe treatments that can be specifically tailored to the needs of each individual.

Am I a Candidate for Exilis®?

Exilis treatment is suitable for individuals of various ages and skin types. Below are some considerations to help determine if you are an ideal candidate.

Qualifications for Candidates:

  • Good Skin Elasticity: Having relatively good skin elasticity helps achieve the most effective skin tightening results, as elastic skin more readily adapts to changes in underlying tissues.
  • Targeted Skin Concerns: Ideal candidates are those looking for noticeable yet natural-looking improvements in specific issues such as fine lines, wrinkles and skin laxity, or those seeking contouring for the body and face to reduce fat.
  • Realistic Expectations: The results of Exilis are highly satisfying when your goals align with what the treatment can realistically achieve. Exilis is designed for cosmetic improvements, not as a solution for weight loss. It is most effective for sculpting and refining rather than significant fat removal or addressing obesity.
  • Overall Healthy: Candidates should be in good general health. While Exilis is safe, having a stable health condition promotes better outcomes and reduces any risks associated with treatment.
  • No Pre-Existing Conditions: You should not have any severe health conditions that might affect your body’s response to ultrasound and radiofrequency energy, such as severe autoimmune disorders or significant cardiovascular issues.

A comprehensive consultation with our office will assess these factors to determine if Exilis is the right choice for you. This personalized evaluation ensures that the treatment plan meets your specific needs, maximizing the potential for satisfying results.

Who Is Not a Candidate for Exilis®?

While Exilis is a versatile treatment that suits many individuals, there are certain conditions and scenarios where it may not be appropriate. Here are some considerations that could indicate you are not a candidate for Exilis:

Health Conditions that Preclude Exilis:

  • Pregnancy and Nursing: Exilis is not recommended for pregnant or nursing women due to the lack of research on the effects of ultrasound and radiofrequency energies on fetuses and infants.
  • Severe Skin Conditions: Individuals with severe skin conditions or infections in the treatment area should avoid Exilis. Conditions like active skin infections, severe eczema or psoriasis, and open wounds need to be fully resolved before considering this treatment.
  • Metal Implants or Pacemakers: Exilis is not recommended for people with metal implants in the treatment area or electronic devices such as pacemakers or defibrillators. The radiofrequency energy can interfere with these devices or heat the metal implants, leading to potential injuries.
  • Poor General Health: People with compromised immune systems or those in poor general health might experience more complications or have a diminished healing response, making Exilis less effective or safe.
  • Significant Cardiovascular Conditions: Patients with significant cardiovascular conditions may be advised to avoid treatments like Exilis that involve the manipulation of body tissues, which could potentially alter vascular dynamics.
  • Allergies to Treatment Components: If you have known allergies to any components used during the Exilis treatment process, such as certain topical preparations, you should discuss these with the provider.

At your consultation with our specialists at Contour You, we will review these conditions and more to determine your suitability for Exilis treatment.

How Should I Prepare for Exilis®?

Preparation for an Exilis treatment is generally straightforward but crucial for achieving optimal results. The process begins with a personalized consultation, during which your skincare goals and skin condition are thoroughly assessed. Based on this assessment, our team will guide you through any pretreatment requirements, which may include staying hydrated and avoiding certain skincare products that could sensitize the skin before treatment. This ensures that you are fully prepared and increases the likelihood of achieving the best possible results.

How Long Does Exilis® Treatment Take?

Each Exilis treatment session is relatively quick, typically lasting between 20 and 30 minutes depending on the treatment area. This quick turnaround time means that sessions can easily be scheduled into a busy day, possibly even during a lunch break, providing a practical solution for today’s fast-paced lifestyles.

Is the Treatment Customizable?

Exilis treatments are highly customizable, allowing for precise targeting of specific areas of concern. Whether you are looking to reduce abdominal fat, tighten sagging skin on the face or body or smooth out lines on the face, Exilis can be adjusted to focus on your specific needs. This ability to tailor the treatment enhances both the effectiveness and the satisfaction with the outcomes.

Will I Need Downtime After Exilis®?

One of the major benefits of Exilis is the minimal to no downtime involved. This feature is particularly desirable for busy individuals who cannot afford the lengthy recovery periods associated with surgical procedures. You can typically return to your daily activities immediately after an Exilis session, making it a convenient option for cosmetic enhancement. However, the recovery experience can vary slightly depending on the individual and the area treated.

What Is Exilis® Recovery Like?

Here’s a general timeline to give you an idea of what to expect after Exilis:

Immediately After Treatment

  • You may experience mild redness or warmth at the treatment site, similar to a mild sunburn.
  • These symptoms typically subside within a few hours but may last up to 24 hours.

48-72 Hours Post-Treatment

  • You may start to notice a slight tightening effect as the collagen production process begins.

One Week Post-Treatment

  • Any minor side effects like tingling or sensitivity should be completely gone.
  • Your skin may start to show signs of improved texture and tone.

Three Months Post-Treatment

  • The skin will start to show significant signs of improved texture and tone. A minimum of six treatments is recommended for improved results.

How Much Does Exilis® Cost?

The cost of Exilis treatments can vary widely based on several factors, including the number of sessions required, the specific areas being treated and the overall condition of your skin. During your consultation, our team at Contour You will provide a personalized quote that includes a breakdown of all costs involved, allowing you to make an informed decision.

Most patients can expect to pay between $400 and $500 for a single treatment. It’s worth noting that package deals are often available for those looking to undergo multiple sessions (which are highly recommended for optimal results) or combine Exilis with other treatments, offering potential cost savings.

Can I Combine Exilis® With Other Treatments?

When incorporated into a regimen that includes other aesthetic services, Exilis can contribute to a well-rounded and thorough skin transformation that addresses a multitude of skin issues. The combination of treatments amplifies the overall effectiveness, allowing for a more complete and lasting solution to skin concerns. The option to blend Exilis with other treatments opens the door for treatment plans that are tailored to the individual needs and objectives of each patient. This personalized approach not only maximizes the effectiveness of each treatment but also offers a more efficient use of both time and financial investments.
