There are many benefits of getting older and wiser, but we all have places on our face and body where we’d like a little boost of youthfulness as we age. Whether it’s minimizing wrinkles on your face, reducing pockets of unwanted fat, or tightening the sagging skin on your face or body, the high-tech Exilis Ultra™ therapy can provide the results you are seeking. It is the first technology to use both ultrasound and radiofrequency in one device, which makes it an incredibly versatile and effective treatment. At The Skin and Laser Treatment Institute in Walnut Creek, CA, Dr. Christine Lee and her team of professionals are equipped with this technology so you can get the youthful, trim appearance you have been seeking.
How Exilis Ultra works
The Exilis Ultra skin tightening and fat reduction treatment harnesses two of the best non-invasive methods for firming and contouring skin: radiofrequency energy and ultrasound waves. A single device emits both types of energy to target specific areas on your body. The waves penetrate deep into the skin and force heat into the tissues, which stimulates the natural production of collagen in your body. The heat produced during the treatment also causes fat cells to overheat and die so they can eventually be flushed out of your body. This whole process can tighten skin, reduce unwanted fat, and restore a more youthful overall appearance.
Patients commonly get Exilis Ultra treatments on the following parts of their body, but treatment is not limited to these areas:
- Beneath the chin
The Exilis Ultra procedure
Each treatment session takes about 15-30 minutes. The Exilis Ultra device will be run across the treatment area in a circular motion. It will produce a warming sensation similar to a hot stone massage, and after the appropriate heat level has been reached in your skin, it will start to cool. There is no downtime after your treatment.
It takes a few months to see optimal results after treatment because the collagen stimulation process takes at least 90 days. You may need more than one treatment depending on your skin, the treatment area, and the end results that you are seeking.
At Dr. Christine Lee’s cosmetic dermatology practice, each patient receives individualized care so that they are comfortable and satisfied before, during, and after their treatment.
