If you diet, exercise and take good care of your body
but still have isolated areas of localized fat that
resist your best efforts, we have some good news. Exilis
ELITE is a new radio-frequency technology that reduces
isolated areas of fat while tightening the skin. Using
radio frequency energy, this device offers twice the
power and effectiveness of the original Exilis device
that is sometimes used at media-spas or salons. With the
new Exilis ELITE, you can achieve better results in half
the number of treatments with a new advanced safety
control. In essence, better results at half the cost!
While not a replacement for surgery, for those seeking a
non-surgical solution to small areas of fat on the face,
neck, body, legs, arms, back and knees or those who wish
to improve skin tone and quality, Exilis ELITE is a
great alternative. Exilis ELITE may also be used as a
post-procedural adjunct to surgery to help improve and
maintain results. Exilis ELITE is a second
generation device that delivers twice the power and
effectiveness of the original Exilis device that is
sometimes used in spas or salons. Dr. Liu is the

Exilis ELITE is an exciting new technology that uses
radio frequency (RF) energy for body contouring and skin
tightening. It is a non-surgical procedure that reduces
fat and firms skin in the face and body.
How does Exilis ELITE work?
During an Exilis ELITE treatment, precisely
controlled radio frequency energy is used to heat the
deeper layers of the skin. This heat causes fat cells to
shrink and contracts the skin tissue, stimulating new
collagen production in the process.
Who is a good candidate for Exilis ELITE treatment?
Exilis ELITE is recommended for any patient between
the ages of 25 and 70+ who desires cosmetic improvement,
particularly those areas that show the signs of aging,
unhealthy life style and have not responded to other
treatment options. Exilis ELITE treatment offers
cosmetic improvement without surgery.
What does an Exilis ELITE treatment feel like?
As the Exilis ELITE device is guided over the area to
be treated, you will feel a deep heating sensation.
Exilis ELITE radio frequency energy is delivered to the
deeper layers of the skin. The underside of the
applicator provides cooling to the skin’s surface,
keeping you more comfortable during the treatment.
How long is an Exilis ELITE treatment?
The Exilis ELITE platform was designed to deliver
energy in a short treatment of under an hour for greater
patient convenience and comfort. Generally, a series of
two or three treatments will be required to achieve the
desired result. The number of treatments will depend on
your existing cosmetic concerns and the goals you want
Is there any downtime?
There is no downtime with this procedure. There may
be temporary pinkness or redness in the skin for about
20-30 minutes that quickly subsides. Since there is no
downtime or special care required once you leave the
office, you can carry on with the rest of your day’s
activities immediately following treatment.
Is Exilis ELITE safe?
Yes, Exilis ELITE is an FDA cleared device for skin
tightening. There are controls built in to the device to
ensure that it does not overheat the skin.
What kind of results can I expect with Exilis ELITE?
You may start to see some body contouring and skin
tightening results after just 1 to 2 Exilis ELITE
treatments, but in most cases, your optimal result will
be achieved after the third or fourth treatment.
Treatments will be spaced out over 1 to 2 week
intervals. The Exilis Elite is a second
generation device that delivers twice the power of the
regular Elite model sometimes available through salons
