Portland, OR patients ask, “How many Exilis treatments are needed for results?”
Dr. Adam Maddox of Thrive in Portland, OR believes in offering his patients a wide range of methods for aging beautifully, both inside and out. He is a naturopathic aesthetic medicine specialist who can help patients young and old with common body and health complaints. His facility offers some of the most advanced methods for treating concerns such as areas of unwanted body fat.
While many patients believe the only way to address body fat when diet and exercise fail is liposuction, other treatment options are available that are much less risky and invasive. Liposuction and other plastic surgeries are not the only way to achieve better body contours and improved self-confidence. Our practice offers a treatment known as Exilis, which allows patients to target fat deposits and enjoy a more aesthetic appearance.
Exilis is done with radio frequency energy, which heats and targets fat cells underneath the skin. The body flushes them out naturally over the course of time. This treatment does not affect the health and appearance of the skin during the process, thus providing an amazing method of treatment that surpasses the issues associated with traditional plastic surgeries and liposuction. Exilis can be used on virtually any part of the body, but is common suggested for areas such as the:
- Love handles (flanks)
- Chin and jowls
Dr. Adam Maddox is often asked by patients, how many Exilis treatments are needed to see optimum results? This is a difficult question to answer, as the treatment plan will vary from patient to patient. Most patients will see results after just the first session, while others may need more to obtain the results they truly desire. Patients must also understand that time is necessary to see the final look, so treatments should be spaced weeks, or even months, apart. Minor areas of fat deposits can be treated in two to three appointments while others may need upwards of six sessions. However, a consultation appointment with Dr. Adam Maddox can help in determining the most realistic expectations and the number of treatments needed.
