Getting older leads to a gradual loss of the production of collagen and elastin. These two important skin components are proteins that help your skin stay smooth, firm, and plump. This natural slowdown in production leads to skin laxity on the body, face, and neck.
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your skin due to skin laxity, non-surgical skin tightening procedures can help to slow or even reverse this process. This leads to a smoother, firmer skin appearance with no downtime required.
Patients who make the best candidates for non-surgical skin tightening procedures are those who are annoyed by skin laxity but do not require drastic steps like cosmetic surgery.
WHY BODY CONTOURING?
BTL Exilis Ultra Body Contouring is a safe and effective treatment that uses heat and radio frequency waves to tighten the skin and dissolve fat cells. This technology can be used to tighten skin on almost any area of the body. Typically, many people seek this treatment for contouring stubborn fat areas such as under the chin, abdomen, knees, and back.
Non-surgical body contouring procedures offer multiple benefits, including the ability to tighten loose skin without the need for surgery that can cause significant downtime or scars. Most non-surgical skin tightening treatments involve an extremely low risk of complications. The treatments are performed in the comfort of our office and don’t take much time to complete.
WHAT IS THE EXILIS ULTRA?
BTL Exilis Ultra Body Contouring combines ultrasound and radio frequencies to penetrate the skin with gentle heating, causing fat cells to shrink, stimulates collagen production, and skin to contract. Fat cells are eventually processed by the body and are flushed through the lymphatic system.
The BTL Exilis Ultra treatment is safe and effective for patients of all ages and skin tones who are showing signs of aging or want to improve those problem areas where exercise and diet are reaching. However, people with pacemakers and nursing or pregnant women are not candidates for this treatment.
WHAT TO EXPECT FROM EXILIS ULTRA?
There is no need to take time off of work or set time away from your usual activities as BTL Exilis Ultra Body Contouring involves very minimal to no recovery time. A treatment typically takes about 30 to 90 minutes, and the number of treatments will depend upon your aesthetic goals in mind. However, patients usually only need two to four session to achieve their desired results.
Results may be noticed after the first session, but dramatic results may not appear until up to six months after the treatment. Results from BTL Exilis treatments last as long as you can maintain them.
While fat cells shrink and some are destroyed, they do have the ability to grow back again. Best results from BTL Exilis Ultra Body Contouring are seen when coupled with a healthy diet and exercise.
