With the vanishing of youth also flees smooth skin and slender contours. Anyone who has tried the latest diet fads, worked out until their muscles were sore, or tried expensive lotions and creams that claim to improve the firmness of the skin know that the results following an attempt to regain a younger appearance can often be disappointing.
Plastic surgeries, like facelift and liposuction, can certainly do wonders to correct cosmetic concerns, but not everyone is ready to take those steps. In the meantime, or perhaps as the only necessary procedure, Exilis can rejuvenate facial and body contours by tightening the skin and reducing fat simultaneously, making it a one-stop treatment technique.
The Exilis Procedure
Healthy female and male persons who witness changes that accompany aging of the face, such as reduced skin laxity and the formation of wrinkles, may be ideal candidates for Exilis. Mild to moderate localized fat deposits in other locations around the body may also be of concern.
For patients who prefer non-invasive techniques for addressing their cosmetic goals, Exilis can lift and tighten the skin in as little as 15 minutes per area. No anesthesia, incisions, or stitches are required. Almost any area of the body where skin firming and fat reduction is desired can be treated. Sites which are commonly targeted include the face, neck, jowls, breasts, hips, thighs, buttocks, and abdomen.
When undergoing Exilis, radio frequency (RF) is used to tighten facial and neck skin. An additional hand piece attachment also allows for the tightening of various areas of the body. The therapeutic thermal energy emitted from the device penetrates the tissue layers without causing damage to the skin. In doing so, the metabolic rate of the unwanted fat cells is increased.
By shrinking the fat cells, skin texture is improved and the contour of the facial area or body part appears more pleasing. A second facet of Exilis is stimulation of collagen to enhance the skin’s structure, resulting in increased smoothness and better elasticity.
The procedure emanates heat as it targets the tissues below the surface of the skin, but it is not painful. A cooling element in the applicator will prevent the skin from feeling too warm, making anesthesia unnecessary.
Recovery Following Exilis
Patients can return to work, as well as exercise and strenuous activities, the same day as undergoing Exilis. Light physical activity immediately following the procedure, as well as increased water consumption, is encouraged for optimal results. Some redness of the skin may linger for a few hours following treatment. Successful outcomes are possible in as little as one treatment, but it may be recommended that patients undergo multiple sessions spaced a couple weeks apart in order to achieve certain results.

What is Exilis?
Exilis is a noninvasive procedure designed to tighten skin, rejuvenate the appearance, as well as decrease fatty deposits anywhere on the body.
How does Exilis work?
Through a unique handpiece, a high radio frequency (RF) is emitted. The thermal energy created from the RF will penetrate the tissue layers without causing any damage to the skin. The fat cells will experience a metabolic change, causing them to shrink. Exilis will also stimulate the body’s production of collagen, which will further improve the appearance of the skin.
How is an Exilis treatment performed?
To begin, the targeted area of skin/fat deposits will be pinpointed. A hand piece is then used to emit a radio frequency (RF) to tighten facial and neck skin; a different hand piece will be used for the areas of the body.
Who is a good candidate for Exilis?
Both men and women, experiencing the skin laxity that comes with normal aging, as well as mild to moderate fatty deposits anyplace on the body.
Where is the Exilis treatment performed?
Dr. Kessler performs treatments with Exilis in his state-of-the-art office.
What type of anesthesia is used during an Exilis procedure?
No anesthesia is required with Exilis; patients experience no discomfort during the procedure.
How long does an Exilis treatment take to perform?
Exilis takes approximately 15 minutes per treatment area.
How long will the results from an Exilis treatment last?
The fat-reducing results of Exilis are permanent, although patients need to maintain an appropriate weight and exercise routine. Improved skin laxity can see long lasting improvements, although the normal aging process will continue.
What can I expect during my recovery from an Exilis treatment?
Following an Exilis procedure, patients should increase their water intake, and continue with light physical activity. The skin may have some degree of redness, although this should dissipate after just a few hours. That same day, patients can return to their normal routine.
When can I return to work after receiving Exilis?
Patients are able to return to work, school, and even strenuous activities immediately after an Exilis procedure.
What are the risks of Exilis?
Exilis is considered extremely safe. As it is noninvasive, Exilis does not hold any risk for infection or scarring.
Can I finance my Exilis treatment?
Patients are welcome to pay for their Exilis treatment, or any other procedure offered at Kessler Plastic Surgery, in a variety of ways. We accept cash, all major credit cards, as well as healthcare financing through CareCredit.
