You can enjoy a beautiful body with the predictable results of Exilis Ultra contouring in Portland

Portland, OR patients enjoy no downtime and predictable results from Exilis Ultra body contouring treatment.

If you want to enjoy showing off your curves, ask us about Exilis Ultra. It is a noninvasive procedure with beautiful, predictable results – and it is available right here at Thrive Aesthetic & Anti-Aging Center in Portland, OR. Exilis Ultra is unique in its dual approach to body contouring, with the ability to tighten skin as well as reduce stubborn areas of fat.

The science behind Exilis Ultra

BTL, the maker of Exilis Ultra, has long been an industry leader in noninvasive aesthetic devices. The first incarnation of Exilis received FDA clearance more than a decade ago, and quickly earned a reputation for excellence in safety and results. Since then, Exilis Ultra has only improved!

The key to predictability of results and patient comfort is precision. That is something Exilis Ultra has down to a science, quite literally.

  • Real Time monitoring – RF (radiofrequency) energy moves more easily through some types of tissue than others, a factor known as energy impedance. Exilis Ultra has a built-in intelligent monitoring system, which measures impedance hundreds of times each second. Therefore, the device “knows” instantly when it moves from the fatty area below the chin to the thin layer of tissue over the jaw, and when it breaks contact with skin.
  • Automatic recalibration – Not only does Exilis Ultra measure impedance, it also adjusts the flow of energy accordingly. It is designed to automatically optimize treatment as the device moves across different areas. If the treatment head is not in full contact with skin, energy immediately stops flowing. This is important because it prevents uncomfortable energy arcing and sparking that could otherwise occur.
  • Energy Flow Control (EFC) – In this age of electronics, you are probably familiar with surge protectors, which keep electrical power spikes from harming your stereo to computer. Exilis Ultra has created an equivalent technology for protecting your skin from RF energy spikes. Therefore, the device delivers a smooth and consistent flow of energy, improving the comfort, safety, and predictability of results.
  • Temperature control – The therapeutic benefits of RF energy are the result of heating tissue. It works to melt fat, tighten lax fibers, and stimulate collagen remodeling. If the temperature is too low, results will be diminished, but, too much heat will cause patient discomfort, or even risk burns. Achieving optimal safety and efficacy requires a delicate balance, which Exilis Ultra performs beautifully. Integrated temperature monitoring, and heating and cooling features ensure a stable, and ideal, temperature throughout treatment.

Putting the science to work for you – what Exilis Ultra can accomplish

Whether you have one little problem area, or you seek total body recontouring, Exilis Ultra can be an excellent choice. It is quite literally a head-to-toe solution, powerful enough to sculpt your body and gentle enough to tighten delicate facial skin.

Exilis Ultra has become a preferred solution among patients who don’t want, or are not ready for, surgery. However, it is important to understand that Exilis Ultra will not mimic the results of a surgical face or body lift. Because excess tissue can be removed, surgery achieves the most dramatic results, especially for patients with extreme sagging. Exilis Ultra works in a different way, reducing laxity from the inside out. It works with your body, firming tissue and stimulating collagen production.

Exilis Ultra has become a preferred solution among patients who don’t want, or are not ready for, surgery.

During your initial consultation we will discuss your cosmetic concerns and problem areas, as well as what you hope to achieve. Your provider will also explain what Exilis Ultra can and cannot accomplish, to ensure that you have realistic expectations. Due to the highly predictable nature of Exilis Ultra, your provider can help you understand what to expect so that you can make an informed decision.

If you choose Exilis Ultra, we will recommend a treatment schedule based on your goals. Because this procedure triggers natural processes within the body, it does not create instant and dramatic change. You may notice a bit of improvement right after a session, but the true magic of Exilis Ultra happens gradually and naturally. The treated area becomes slimmer, smoother, and firmer as the days and weeks pass. Full results develop within two or three months after the final treatment.
