Portland physician chooses Exilis as best method for facial rejuvenation
Did you know that the outward, visible signs of aging first appear on the face years before any other part of our body?
Wrinkles, skin discoloration, and sagging facial features can be blamed on a mix of biological and environmental factors that only serve to accelerate the breakdown of our skin. These include:
- Changes in hormones, with decreasing levels of estrogen that help keep our skin supple as we approach pre-menopause and menopause.
- Depleting collagen production and thinning skin because of aging and cumulative damage from free radicals.
- Facial bone changes as we grow older.
- Poor diet and skin care routines that slow the turnover of aging skin cells.
- Lack of exercise.
Just as there is a buffet of causes of facial aging, there is a menu of facial rejuvenation treatments available to improve skin texture and elasticity and to reverse the telltale markers of age.
One of the most effective and revolutionary in its delivery method and minimal invasiveness is Exilis. Exilis is FDA-approved to help reduce wrinkles and restore vital collagen production to give skin renewed tone, volume, and resiliency. Exilis excels by offering a safe, effective, non-invasive, and cost effective method for facial rejuvenation.
Exilis works by using radio frequency – sound waves – that target the inner layers of skin. Unlike other radio frequency technology systems, it is designed to send the waves deeper and to exert more energy (heat) into the fat and skin cells, where they cause a chain reaction that breaks up fatty deposits and spurs new collagen production to give skin more smoothness and volume.
Exilis uses a proprietary Energy Flow Control (EFC) safely gauge the RF waves to ensure the patient is receiving optimal levels of energy that is grounded, so there is not a return of energy to the skin – this means the patient does not feel any heating sensation or pain.
