A dense meshwork of collagen and elastin fibers in deep skin layers keeps the surface taut. Beginning in young adulthood, the body’s production of collagen slows down. Meanwhile, environmental factors such as pollution and sun exposure systematically break down existing stores of collagen. Skin gets thinner, dryer, and lax. Fine lines become etched in, and wrinkles start to develop.
These skin changes occur all over the body, not just on the face. Over time you may notice sags, jiggles, and droops almost anywhere, even if you maintain a healthy weight, eat right, and get regular exercise. Most people also have some unwanted fat deposits. Where they show up is largely due to genetic predisposition, and these stubborn zones usually get more noticeable as we age. At our office in Bend Exilis Ultra effectively addresses these conditions without anesthetic, incisions, sutures, surgical risk of infection, or scarring. The non-invasive procedure is not painful – often compared to a hot stone massage – and has no social downtime. Yet it tightens skin through deep internal processes and tones body contours by disrupting fat cells.
Because Exilis Ultra is a non-surgical and drug-free treatment, most adults with mild to moderate skin laxity can be good candidates.
Following a thorough consultation to understand your concerns, and an evaluation of your skin type, EsthetixMD Spa & Laser Center creates a customized treatment plan tailored to your needs. Each case is unique, but usually a series six sessions spaced about a week apart is recommended. Most patients see noticeable change within 90 days after the first treatment, more improvement as collagen continues to build and fat cells die, and optimal results within several weeks of the last appointment. With Exilis Ultra Bend patients can now treat some of these areas and concerns:
- Minimize crow’s feet at corners of the eyes
- Reduce bags under eyes and perk up drooping eyelids
- Contour cheeks
- Soften facial wrinkles and folds
- Reduce double chin and jowls
- Firm up loose neck skin
- Smooth crepey skin on the chest
- Reduce bra and back fat
- Tone upper arms, flanks, abdomen, thighs, and knees
- Improve the appearance of veiny, bony hands
EXILIS ULTRA COMBINES THE POWER OF ULTRASOUND TECHNOLOGY AND RADIO FREQUENCY ENERGY INTO ONE NON-INVASIVE TREATMENT.
The proprietary Energy Flow Control applicator targets specific parts of the body, focusing energy with uniform pulses, for faster treatment and the most effective results. This is not a laser, so it can be used on delicate skin around eyes and on all skin tones and types.
The combined energies of Exilis Ultra penetrate surface skin, creating a thermal response in lower layers. This method packs a one-two punch for body contouring. Deep heating contracts skin cells and stimulates production of collagen and elastin, which thickens and tightens skin. It also compromises the walls of fat cells, causing them to spill their oily content which is then harmlessly flushed by the body’s lymphatic system. Since the adult body does not produce new fat cells, sculpted contours are long-lasting with sensible lifestyle habits.
With Exilis Ultra, energy is directed deeply into skin creating beneficial change, yet the device has built-in cooling technology for maximum comfort during treatment. The clinician applies treatment with a mobile handpiece, using a circular motion. Heat intensity is carefully controlled, and cooling is triggered automatically. While the treatment area gets quite warm at the outset, most people find the experience relaxing overall.
- Fewer treatments than other skin tightening methods. Generally, appointments are scheduled every seven days, with four to six total treatments needed.
- Each session takes approximately 30 to 45 minutes, depending on the area of treatment, and is painless.
- Age is not a factor. Any adult desiring cosmetic improvement is eligible.
- There is no need for needles, general anesthesia, or the expense of cosmetic surgery.
- Because of the cooling system, face, neck, jowls, abdomen, back, arms, and legs can be treated safely and comfortably.
