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.
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,

cosmetic improvement without surgery.
What does an Exilis ELITE treatment feel like?
As the Exilis ELITE device is guided over the area to

deeper layers of the skin. The underside of the
applicator provides cooling to the skin’s surface,
keeping you more comfortable during the treatment.
