Loose skin represents one of the most common complaints patients bring to our office. Skin tends to deteriorate with wear and age, which leaves it functional but less beautiful than most people would prefer.
The biggest problem with loose skin isn’t the fact that it’s difficult to treat; loose skin can easily be remedied via a facelift or another surgery designed to pull the skin tight. The problem resides with the fact that surgical procedures bring the risk of infection, cause unavoidable scarring and may require repeated procedures over a patient’s lifetime.
Treatments like Exilis skin tightening represent a new alternative for patients with deteriorating skin. It is a non-surgical treatment designed to tighten the skin without the need for a single incision.
What is Exilis Skin Tightening?
Exilis is a non-invasive treatment designed to tighten and tone a person’s skin. It harnesses the power of radio frequency waves to transmit energy beneath the skin that can be used to selectively destroy undesirable collagen structures.
The radio waves introduced to the skin harmlessly pass through healthy and desirable skin cells. When they reach collagen cells that are malformed or uneven, they cause these cells to vibrate. This creates heat, which leads to the controlled destruction of these cells.
The body can create new collagen structures that are denser than before, which is what leads to the improvements patients see with Exilis skin tightening. Another unique benefit of this heat is the fact that it encourages blood flow to treated areas. This helps to speed the recovery process while toning and reshaping the skin into something that is more attractive and youthful-looking than before.
Will You See Immediate Improvements?
One of the most important qualities of Exilis is the fact that most patients will see some type of immediate improvements following treatment. The heightened blood flow and the destruction of the undesirable collagen beneath the skin allows for this.
The greatest improvements, however, will typically require multiple treatment sessions and several weeks. The skin must be allowed to heal to display the full range of improvements that Exilis skin tightening can bring. Patients will typically see these improvements as gradual results. This is what makes Exilis one of the more powerful non-invasive methods of skin tightening.
Are There Any Other Benefits to Exilis?
Exilis skin tightening may help clear up certain tone-related issues that your skin may experience. The increased blood circulation coupled with the controlled destruction of certain undesirable cells beneath the skin is what allows Exilis to provide these unique improvements.
While Exilis can provide numerous benefits to a person’s overall appearance, it’s important to remember that many of these benefits are dependent upon the person’s unique skin condition. This is why an evaluation is necessary before any treatment can begin.
