Using Exilis to tighten the skin in the Vancouver area
At Thrive in the Vancouver area, many men and women who are interested in better body contours without invasive surgery often ask about certain procedures available in our practice including Exilis. Exilis is an FDA-approved treatment that can be used for both fat removal and skin tightening solutions. When patients have a little extra fat deposits on a specific area of the body they want to address, or if they want to tighten and tone the skin of the face to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, Exilis may be the most desirable treatment for them.
Exilis uses radio frequency energy to heat and tighten the skin, while also damaging unwanted fat cells so the body can flush them out naturally. Dr. Adam Maddox and his team of professionals use Exilis for both men and women and he finds it effective on many parts of the body including the face, jowls, arms, thighs, abdomen, and flanks.
What’s great about Exilis is that it provides results with a non-surgical treatment. Patients rest in the treatment chair while a device is moved along the skin to provide heat using radio frequency energy. This helps in stimulating the production of collagen, damaging fat cells, and providing tightening and toning that would otherwise be achieved with plastic surgery. This treatment is noninvasive. It does not require any downtime or recovery, as there is no healing that needs to be achieved. Patients who have Exilis treatments done in our practice will go about the remainder of their day without any interruption, making this a great alternative to plastic surgery for those who have busy, active lifestyles to maintain. The only side effects to treatment are redness and tenderness in the treatment area that will last a day or two after the procedure. Other than this, no problems have been described by anyone who has undergone the procedure, including those in clinical trials.
