“No pain, no gain.” is a famous saying that’s applicable in life’s different aspects, even in beauty. Many people nowadays undergo cosmetic surgery for fast results, like removing body fat and excess skin and enhancing the breasts and butt. While there’s still no alternative solution to the latter other than surgery, there are ways to achieve the former. One of which is through Exilis.
What is Exilis?
Exilis is a non-surgical treatment offered by dermatologists in NYC to tighten skin, reduce fat, or both. It uses radiofrequency (RF) waves to “melt away” the fat and tighten the skin. Over the years, there have been three different types of Exilis treatment — Exilis Elite, Exilis Protege, and Exilis Ultra.
How does Exilis work?
Heat produced by RF waves stimulate and penetrate different layers of the skin. The temperature is adjustable depending on the purpose of the treatment.
For skin tightening treatments, collagen production is stimulated to unravel collagen fibers. Once activated by the RF, fibroblasts would take place and there would be more protein production. The fibers in the skin can have tightening effects in the long term.
If the treatment is for reduction, the RF reaches deeper into the tissues to cause the fat to “melt away.” The Exilis machine uses energy to destroy the fat cells and then excreted by the body through natural processes.
Is it the right treatment for you?
Ideally, Exilis is a great choice for people who prefer non-invasive type of treatments. There may be minimal side effects to the procedure, but many professionals have deemed it safe. Take note, however, that no one person is similar. Therefore, it would be advisable to consult with your doctor if you want to undergo this treatment.
Now, there is no reason for you to put off your fat reduction treatment because you are afraid to go under the knife. With this new technology, you would be able to have the body you want, without much pain and risks.
