Akron area patients ask, "How does Exilis for fat reduction work?"

If you are in or around the Akron area and are tired of dealing with unwanted fat that won’t budge, Exilis may be the perfect solution for you.

We see many patients who try to do everything by the book, including a healthy diet and adequate exercise. While these two lifestyle choices are an important part of losing weight (and fat), you can still be left with small areas that are difficult to eliminate. In the past, the only way to address that unwanted fat was through liposuction.

While liposuction can be extremely successful, it comes with its own set of risks. Plastic surgery requires incisions, which means there is a risk of infection. In addition, recovery time can be long and sometimes painful.

So how does Exilis work for fat reduction?

The Exilis system utilizes monopolar radio frequency. It is delivered via a handheld applicator and it works by heating the fat cells located beneath the skin. The energy destroys the fat cells, allowing them to shrink and eventually melt away. While the Exilis system reduces unwanted fat, it can also aid in tightening the skin. The heat stimulates the body’s natural collagen production, which can firm and smooth out skin. Exilis is an excellent option to reduce the appearance of cellulite.

Exilis procedures are performed in our office. For most areas of the body, treatment can be completed in under an hour. One of the biggest benefits of Exilis is that there is no downtime. Patients can come in for their session and return to work or other activities immediately afterward.

Exilis is appropriate for most individuals who are within a healthy body weight. It is not a weight loss treatment; therefore, it is not appropriate for patients who are severely overweight. Following a proper nutrition and exercise program will help maintain results long term.

Results from Exilis can usually be seen after a few appointments and they will continue to improve. A typical treatment plan involves multiple sessions spread out over the course of a few months. During a consultation, we can develop your treatment plan. If you are in the Akron area and are ready to see if Exilis is right for you, give Seriously Skin a call today.
