Exilis Protégé Elite
Yes, you can turn back the hands of time in your face’s favor. And no, it doesn’t require surgery.
EsthetixMD med spa recommends Exilis Protégé Elite facial skin tightening using radio frequency to
- shrink jowls to reveal your true jaw line,
- fade crow’s feet, worry lines and smile lines,
- reduce skin laxity, and
- treat all areas of the face and neck for improved appearance.
The Protégé Elite is a safe, effective facial contouring and skin tightening device that uses high frequency radio waves to stimulate and strengthen collagen. The RF energy heats the undersurface of the skin causing collagen remodeling. The result is wrinkle reduction and skin rejuvenation, like a face lift without surgery.
There are no special preparations you need to make before your treatment. You may be tan before your session, and you may tan afterwards, though this is discouraged, as UV light breaks down collagen. We do ask you to come to your appointments well hydrated. Men undergoing facial treatments must shave the morning of the treatment. Treatment is painless. Patients report a moderate to intense sensation of heat.0
For significant results, therapy must include two to three sessions scheduled at seven- to 21-day intervals, depending on your treatment plan.
You’ll experience a brief period of redness and minor swelling, but there is no downtime. You can resume your daily routine immediately. There is no skin peeling, pigment change or prolonged healing associated with treatment.
Although you may see immediate results after your treatment session, the major clinical improvement is evident at three months following your last treatment.
Exilis Protégé Elite is suitable for all skin types and colors. Patients with a pacemaker, metal implants or who are pregnant or nursing may not undergo radio frequency treatments.
