Exilis treatments in Portland are one of the best options to address loose skin
Are you bothered by skin sagging around your jaw line and drooping around the eyes? Do you no longer recognize the face you see reflecting back from the mirror?
Loose skin can be attributed to a variety of different causes. One of the most common is simply aging. The act of growing older comes with biological changes including a loss of collagen and elastin, and weakened facial muscles. Other reasons skin may sag or droop are sun exposure, smoking, or weight loss. Dramatic weight loss in short periods can produce an excess of skin that just seems to “hang.”
Many people turn to Google to come up with solutions for their loose skin. Drug store shelves are filled with creams and lotions promising tighter, firmer skin. More often than not, people are left disappointed with the results of these over the counter remedies.
At Thrive, Dr. Maddox has a revolutionary solution for residents of Portland to address aging skin. With Exilis, in just a few short months, Dr. Maddox can tighten loose skin on your face, body, or neck. Exilis treatments are performed with a hand-held device that delivers monopolar radio frequency waves to the layers of tissue deep beneath the skin. The deep thermal heat targets the damaged collagen network, stimulating growth, tightening skin, and reducing wrinkles.
With Exilis, there is no incision, no anesthesia, no pain, and no scarring. Patients can return to their normal activities immediately after their treatment. Each session lasts less than thirty minutes and full results can be seen after six to eight appointments spaced one to two weeks apart. Exilis can also help patients who want to reduce fat and improve the contours of their body.
