Exilis proven technology for non-surgical fat reduction at Thrive Aesthetic and Anti-Aging Center in Portland
Fat reduction procedures are the second highest plastic surgery procedure performed annually, according to the American Academy of Plastic Surgeons. While surgical liposuction is still the most popular method to remove fat from our body trouble spots, a new non-invasive therapy called Exilis is rivaling liposuction to reduce and eliminate fat.
Exilis, exclusively offered in the Portland area by Dr. Adam Maddox at Thrive Aesthetic and Anti-Aging Center, is an FDA-approved therapy that offers quick, visible results at a fraction of the surgical costs of liposuction with no downtime, recovery period, or telltale scars.
As opposed to cooling therapies, which are also currently en vogue, but only reach the superficial fat layers, Exilis penetrates a targeted beam of high frequency radio waves at the deeper mid-level of fat.
During Exilis the fat cells are not actually destroyed, rather they are heated by intense radio frequency that causes the cells to liquefy and release their contents that is then safely drained away by our natural lymphatic system. The fat cells shrink, resulting in reduced inches around the waistline, arms, and thighs, and abdomen – anywhere treatment is applied. The applicator is engineered to stay cool on the surface, so clients feel no discomfort, while sending penetrating heat to the fat cells one to three centimeters down.
A secondary benefit of Exilis is collagen rejuvenation. Collagen is the protein that gives our skin its volume and resilience. Over time, our natural supplies deplete. Exilis therapy is conducive to reviving the collagen levels within our skin. Simultaneously, the collagen in this area of skin is heated and its fibers unravel and reform, so there is a tightening effect that causes your skin to look and feel firmer.
Exilis treatment compared to liposuction is a vastly different experience. Patients liken it to a hot stone massage. The doctor will apply the applicator to a grid about five by seven inches in size, called a zone. One to eight zones can be treated per session, taking about four and one half minutes per zone. Patients can schedule treatments over their lunch hour or after work. Because there is no recovery time it does not impact their active life, and sessions cost a fraction of liposuction surgery.
Using diagnostic ultrasound, Dr. Maddox will monitor changes in your fat layer thickness. Most patients require several weeks of treatments to reach their desired results.
