Dermatology – South: Exilis Elite™ Skin Tightening
At Dermatology – South in Hattiesburg, we offer a non-surgical radio frequency (RF) treatment for skin tightening and body shaping. The RF energy heats the undersurface of the skin causing collagen remodeling and destruction of fat cells. A series of treatments (four to six sessions) is required to achieve best results. This procedure treats areas of the face and body, including the neck, jowl, arms, love handles, stomach, back, thighs and ankles. It is safe for all skin types.
How many treatments will I need? How long do the results last?
The recommended course of treatment is generally four to six sessions, one every two to four weeks. Some patients may need additional treatments. Patients show persistent results at least six months after the Exilis treatment.
Is it safe?
Exilis has been tested in clinical studies and proven to be safe and effective. It has been cleared by the FDA in the U.S. for use in dermatologic and aesthetic procedures with indications for non-invasive treatment of wrinkles and rhytids.
What about recovery?
Some pinkness on the treated area may last for minutes to hours. Patients should increase water intake on the day of treatment and the day after, and should engage in light exercise such as walking to enhance cosmetic results.
What are the side effects?
There have been no significant side effects reported with Exilis treatment.
Who is a candidate for Exilis?
Exilis is recommended for adults of any skin type who desire improvement of skin elasticity or reduction in fat.
