Akron patients inquire about what to expect with Exilis for Face and Neck

Exilis is a popular non-surgical treatment for skin tightening. Using monopolar radio frequency, Exilis rapidly heats the layers of tissue beneath the skin surface in a controlled manner to disrupt the collagen network and stimulate new growth. At the same time, Exilis also actively cools the surface of the skin for a comfortable procedure that requires no anesthesia or sedation. The result from Exilis is tighter skin and reduced wrinkles.

Exilis is suitable for many areas of the body, but one of the most common areas is the face and neck. Since these are highly visible and sensitive areas, many patients inquire about what to expect with Exilis treatments on the face and neck.

The Initial Appointment

During the first Exilis appointment, pictures of the face will be taken to monitor results. An ultrasound gel will be applied to the area being treated and then we will begin moving the Exilis handheld applicator over the area in small, circular motions. While you will feel a warming sensation, the device will also cool the skin for comfort. The procedure is painless and many of our patients will close their eyes and doze off during their treatment. After the appointment, you are free to go about your daily activities immediately. With Exilis, there is no downtime.

Results with Exilis

It can take up to three months for the body to complete remodeling of the collagen network. As this happens, results will gradually improve. While you may notice some results immediately, long-term results are achieved over the course of several months.

For best results, we recommend 4-6 sessions scheduled about every two weeks. During your consultation, we’ll be able to develop a treatment program based on your needs. We also recommend that patients drink 8-10 glasses of water per day, eat healthy, and engage in light to moderate exercise to improve results.

Exilis is a safe, FDA-approved method for reducing the visible signs of aging on the face. If you want to learn more about how you can eliminate those annoying wrinkles and look years younger, call us today and set up your appointment.
