EXILIS ULTRA 360
BTL Exilis Ultra is an effective non-invasive laser skin tightening treatment with no social down time. This is the only body sculpting technology that combines the powers of radio frequency and ultrasound technology to tighten skin and enhance collagen and elastin production
Exilis skin tightening laser uses an EFC™ (Energy Flow Control) to combine the radio frequency and ultrasound technologies to target specific body parts, while controlling the amount of energy focused on a single area. This means that the technology is ultra safe and ultra effective. The ultrasound technology affords maximum flexibility to safely target just about every body part.
Exilis Ultra 360 focuses and forces heat deeply into the skin, while using a cooling technology to provide maximum comfort during the treatment.
When the heat penetrates the skin, the surrounding fat cells overheat and then eventually die. The dead fat cells are then flushed out through the lymphatic system (drink a lot of water!). And even more importantly, the heat stimulates the production of collagen, which tightens skin, reduces wrinkles and adds volume back into the skin.
BTL Exilis is a great option for those without a lot of excess skin that are seeking to diminish crepeness, tighten loose, sagging skin and eliminate fine lines and wrinkles.
Typically, the best Exilis Ultra candidates are adults age 30-65 who are in relatively good physical condition without the excessive tissue laxity that would require surgery. For the face, an ideal candidate is a man or woman in their 40s or 50s with the beginning signs of jowls or sagging skin in the lower part of the face. Exilis Ultra is popular with patients who have had liposuction and discover they still have small pockets of fat in certain areas. It’s also a great treatment for women who have loose skin in the abdomen from past pregnancies. Although it has been used successfully to diminish love handles and excess fat in the abdomen, arms, legs, thighs and upper back, it’s important to note that Exilis is not plastic surgery. Candidates with a significant amount of fat, excess skin or significant laxity will probably require surgery. Popular treatment areas are, but not limited to:
- Around the eyes
- Under the chin
- Decollate (chest)
The number of treatments required will depend on the area being treated, the condition of the skin, age, and desired results. Most clients require between 2-4 Exilis treatments spaced 1-2 or 2-4 weeks apart. Each area takes between 15-30 minutes per session.
No, the Exilis treatment is not painful and most find the sessions quite comfortable, comparing the feeling to a hot stone massage. You can expect treated areas to get quite warm initially during treatment.
Your laser technician will run the laser hand piece over your skin in a circular motion for a set amount of time. The laser will increase the heat production to a certain, predetermined point and then begin to cool.
With BTL Exilis Ultra 360, there is 0 downtime, recovery or side effects. Because the technology is non-invasive, you can return to normal activity immediately following your session.
Results vary depending on the area of the body treated and the condition of the area. It will take a minimum 90 days for your body to produce collagen following treatment. Some clients report seeing results after a single treatment.
There are no dietary restrictions or required exercise regimens, however, cutting down on carbohydrates, drinking extra water, and burning calories will compliment results. Many clients use this treatment as a means to kick-start a healthier lifestyle. The laser tightening treatment will work without these changes, however, results will be more dramatic when accompanied with a healthy diet and exercise.
