Will Exilis Non-Invasive Body Contouring Work For Me?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I have some areas on my stomach and thighs that have a little extra fat and some loose skin. I do not want to undergo surgery however to make them better, that is just too much for me. I know that there are a lot of different non-invasive body contouring treatments out there that claim effectiveness. The one that has me intrigued the most is Exilis based on my research. How does Exilis work and what has been your experience with these treatments?
A: Exilis produces its effect through the use of highly controlled radiofrequency waves. It delivers high energy levels down to an inch under the skin. Its delivery technology allows that energy to be delivered without injury to the skin through a synchronized pulse delivery and cooling method. Thie keeps the treatments comfortable without risk of skin injury. (burns) It effects fat by breaking down their cell walls so the lipid contents are released and absorbed. It help tighten skin through a process known as neocollagenesis, which is the unraveling of the collagen fibers by the energy and the subsequent stimulation of fibroblasts to produce new collagen resulting in dermal thickening and increased skin density.
The transducer delivery system allows 17 different body areas to be treated from the eyelids down to the hands and everything in between. Our experience has been extremely favorable in properly selected patients who have been educated about achieveable results without surgery. Incremental, lasting and measureable results can be obtained in four treatment sessions or less of Exilis for many patients.
