Exilis ELITE for Face & Neck

If you hate your neck and are tired of hiding behind turtlenecks and scarves, we have new technology you will be interested in learning more about. The Exilis ELITE is an FDA approved, non-surgical device that can help reduce fat in the face, neck or body, tighten the skin and improve the skin quality without downtime. Using radio frequency energy, this device offers twice the power and effectiveness of the original Exilis device that is sometimes used at med-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! Dr. Liu is the first Dermatologist in Newport Beach to offer the new Exilis ELITE. The energy used during treatment heats the deeper layers of the skin causing fat cells to shrink as the skin contracts stimulating new collagen. While not a replacement for a neck-lift or a facelift, Exilis ELITE can provide a very nice alternative for those not seeking a surgical solution, or as a supplemental treatment following facial surgery.

What is Exilis ELITE?

Exilis ELITE is an exciting new technology that uses radio frequency (RF) energy for body and face contouring and skin tightening. It is a non-surgical office procedure that reduces fat and firms skin in the face and body. The Exilis ELITE delivers twice the energy of the original Exilis ELITE device and offers superior results in a shorter amount of time.

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 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 treatments will be required to achieve the desired result. The exact number of treatments will depend on your existing cosmetic concerns and the goals you want to achieve.

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 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 skin tightening and facial reduction results after just 1 to 2 Exilis Elite treatment sessions. 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 or medi-spas therefore less time is needed to achieve optimal results.

Can I achieve same results with Exilis ELITE as with a facelift or neck-lift?

Exilis will not deliver the same results as a surgical facelift or neck-lift. It is a great non-surgical alternative for those who wish to tighten the skin, remove isolates areas of fat from under the chin or areas of the face or as a supplement to surgical procedures.

What areas of the body can be treated with Exilis ELITE?

Due to the unique design of Exilis ELITE, the neck, face, body, arms and legs, back fat and knees are all treated successfully.

How long do results last?

Exilis ELITE is a relatively new device, but current studies show that those who have had treatment over 2 years ago have maintained their results.

What else should I know about an Exilis ELITE treatment?

It is important that you are very well hydrated before, during and after your Exilis ELITE treatment to achieve maximum results. It is also recommended that you partake is some sort of light exercise for 30-40 minutes following treatment in order to maximize results if the body is being treated for fat removal.

How do I know if Exilis ELITE is right for me?

You may schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Liu and her associates to determine which of our body contouring or skin tightening procedures may help you achieve your goals. Ultherapy, Neck-lift, CoolSculpting or a combination approach may be offered for maximum results.
