Treat Skin Laxity and More with Radiofrequency and Ultrasound at Our Spa Serving Bryn Mawr, Newtown Square, and Philadelphia
Even if you do all the right things—eat healthy, work out regularly, and care for your skin—there are factors beyond your control that can cause undesired localized areas of fat, wrinkles, and sagging crepey skin. Genetics, normal aging, hormonal changes, weight fluctuations, and pregnancy can make you more prone to develop these highly resistant, "problem" areas. Our team at Cirillo Cosmetic, provides Exilis Ultra for Bryn Mawr, Newtown Square, and Philadelphia area patients who are seeking an effective, non-invasive method of targeting all of these concerns simultaneously.
How Does Exilis Ultra Work for Fat Reduction and Skin Tightening?
Beginning in your 20s and 30s, there is a reduction in collagen and elastin production in your skin. Thus, it becomes less firm and more wrinkled as the support from collagen and elastin diminishes. Exilis Ultra can be used to stimulate collagen and elastin production and thereby tighten sagging skin and reduce wrinkles on the face and body. It can also be used to reduce localized areas of unwanted fat on the body.
Ultrasound and radiofrequency energy waves are delivered simultaneously to the skin by Exilis Ultra. These energy waves deliver heat to specific layers of the skin. A precise, controlled temperature is maintained in the inner areas of the skin without harming the outer layers. This heat stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin in order to rebuild and support the structure of your skin. Furthermore, this heat reduces the volume of unwanted, subcutaneous fat by damaging fat cells so that they break down. Exilis Ultra is FDA approved to be used on the face and body.
It is important to understand that Exilis Ultra isn't a substitute for liposuction, and the results it produces won't be as dramatic as a surgical procedure. Most people will need multiple treatments—usually between two and four—that are scheduled approximately a week apart to optimize results.
Who is a Candidate for Exilis Ultra?
Patients of any skin type with crepey, sagging, wrinkled skin and/or localized fat deposits are suitable candidates for Exilis Ultra. It's an ideal choice for women and men who are looking for a subtle body contouring treatment that doesn't have the recovery time or discomfort associated with plastic surgery.
Younger patients who are beginning to see the first signs of aging can also use this as a preventative treatment. We refer to this therapy as "prejuvenation."
Results and Recovery from Exilis Ultra
The skin continues to tighten and rebuild in the days and weeks after a treatment, as collagen and elastin levels increase.Most patients notice a more glowing, radiant complexion upon completion of the treatment series. You can return to your daily activities immediately after an Exilis Ultra treatment session.
Other Body Sculpting and Skin Firming Treatments
The Cirillo Cosmetic team offers a range of lasers, lights, and radiofrequency treatments. Laser skin resurfacing is another non-invasive option that patients can use for tightening skin and improving its overall texture. Certain localized fat bulges may be treated effectively with CoolSculpting®, a technique that involves freezing fat and causing it to be flushed out of the body or EmSculpt® HIFEM® therapy.
