RF Skin Tightening
EXILIS™ ULTRA 360
Dermatology & Laser Center of Charleston is excited to offer this next-generation revolutionary procedure that tightens skin from head to toe.
Exilis Ultra 360 is FDA-cleared and unique in that it’s the first non-invasive device that simultaneously transmits radio frequency and ultrasound energy. This combination of technology results in skin tightening therapy that is safer, more comfortable and effective than traditional RF or ultrasound treatments.
How does Exilis Ultra 360 work?
Scientifically proven and clinically tested, the Exilis Ultra 360 applicator provides the optimal level of controlled heat at all times in tissues below the surface of the skin. Energy is monitored and adjusted in real time. The heat skinks the fat cells as well as stimulates new collagen production leading to smoother, firmer skin. During the treatment, patients will feel a sensation of heat as the RF waves target the tissues. It’s a comfortable heat and can feel like a warm hot-stone massage. Sessions can take between 20 and 45 minutes, depending on areas that are treated.
Am I a good candidate for this treatment?
This treatment is idea for any patient between the ages of 21-70+ looking for cosmetic improvement on their face and body. If you have areas of loose or sagging skin, you may be a candidate. Exilis Ultra 360 can tighten, firm and smooth skin and in some instances smooth out cellulite dimples.
It is not meant for treating large areas of fat, so if you are wanting to lose fat or inches, products such as Vanquish ME™ or CoolSculpting® might be a better option. Exilis Ultra 360 can be used in conjunction with these fat reduction procedures to help achieve more comprehensive results.
How Safe is Exilis Ultra 360?
The FDA-cleared Exilis Ultra 360 is safe, comfortable and relatively pain-free. There is no recovery time and patients can generally return to work or play following each treatment. In some instances, a patient may experience some minor irritation in the area(s) treated.
Areas That Can Be Treated
Exilis Ultra 360 can literally treat you from head to toe.
- Face (including eyes, forehead, cheeks, mouth, chin)
- Flanks/muffin top
- Inner and outer thighs
- Knees and Elbows
For optimal results, 4 treatments scheduled between 7-10 day intervals are needed. Most patients will see visible results after the first treatment and continue to see improvements over a 3-month period. You are not required to exercise or alter your dietary habits. If you follow post-treatment instructions, results may last for years.
