Exilis is more than laser skin tightening performed in our office near Beaverton
Millions of men and women are discovering the benefits of advanced technologies available in aesthetic medicine today. The staff at Thrive is proud to be at the forefront of these advances, and to bring those that have demonstrated proven results to our patients. Exilis is one such treatment. This device is not a laser. It does not directly affect the surface of the skin the way a laser does. The skin tightening effects achieved in our office near Beaverton come from controlled, focused radio frequency energy.
Exilis works in two different ways, which compounds the effects on the skin.
- Skin tightening occurs as a result of about 4 treatments. This stems from the rebuilding of collagen in the dermis beneath the skin’s surface. The immediate effect of radiofrequency is that existing collagen strands tighten, making the skin appear firmer and more youthful. This initial effect is followed by progressive results. As collagen formation continues, the skin’s tone and tightness become increasingly noticeable.
- Rejuvenation. In addition to supporting firmer skin, collagen fibers also lift superficial tissues. The results of increased collagen include diminished lines and wrinkles, a reduction in loose skin under the chin, and greater definition at the jaw line.
Exilis treatments take only about 60 minutes for larger areas. If you choose to focus treatment on a localized area, each session may take only about 30 minutes. After treatments, you are able to go about your day without significant redness or swelling. Radiofrequency is one of the gentlest ways to treat the skin, and one of the most efficient. Most patients notice that their skin looks slightly pink after Exilis sessions, but it fades within about half an hour. To encourage optimal processing of radiofrequency, we recommend light exercise, such as walking, and ample water consumption in the 48 hours after each treatment.
