Exilis is a skin tightening and body contouring treatment that is approved by the FDA. It is used to help in wrinkle reduction, smooth out skin, enhance collagen production, and tighten the skin. Ultrasonic waves are delivered with controlled heat to the tissues of the skin in this treatment. Deep layers of fat will be targeted, while the surface of the skin is cooled to help protect the dermal structures of the skin, which omits the risk for burning and blistering. Two heads are used on the device that will not only liquify the fat but also tighten the skin. Exilis can be used on a number of body parts, including the waist, arms, hips, thighs, love handles, face, neckline, jowls, breast, knees, buttocks, bra strap line, and the décolletage.
