{ Exilis Fat Reduction }

What is the Exilis fat reduction, skin tightening and cellulite reduction procedure?

Exilis is a temperature-monitored, radiofrequency soft tissue heating, fat reduction and skin tightening device.

How is Exilis fat reduction procedure performed?

Exilis is a non-surgical, skin-tightening, cellulite-improving and fat reduction radiofrequency technology. The external radiofrequency applicator is applied to the contour area of concern and moved back and forth slowly over top of a small layer of ultrasound gel. The oscillating electrical current heats up the skin and soft tissue, stimulating collagen and reducing the fat cell content in the region.

The Radiofrequency energy heats the skin and the fat. When the temperature gets to the therapeutic end point it is maintained for 20-30 minutes. After a series of treatments there will be a modest Fat Reduction, an improvement in cellulite and/or skin tightening

Who is a candidate for Exilis fat reduction and skin tightening?

Candidates for Exilis and other non-invasive radiofrequency body contouring devices in general are those individuals who want to avoid minimally-invasive surgery, such as liposuction, BodyTite and SmartLipo or VASERLipo, but still want to achieve body contouring improvements and fat reduction in focal areas of excess fat. Exilis candidates also include those with skin laxity and cellulite that want to tighten loose skin and improve cellulite but avoid more invasive surgical procedures. Contraindications for Exilis and non-ablative radiofrequency bulk heating devices include pregnancy and any inflammatory, infected or cancerous lesions in the area of treatment.

What kind of anesthetic is used during Exilis radiofrequency body contouring, skin tightening treatments?

The Exilis radiofrequency treatments are not painful and are well-tolerated and therefore do not require any local anesthesia or topical anesthesia to be performed.

Is the Exilis radiofrequency fat reduction and skin tightening treatment painful?

Radiofrequency, non-ablative skin tightening, fat reduction and body contouring and cellulite improvements are not painful; they are reasonably well-tolerated and therefore do not require any local anesthesia or topical anesthesia.

How long does the Exilis radiofrequency fat reduction program take?

Non-ablative radiofrequency bulk heating soft tissue and fat reduction treatments, including Exilis, BodyFx™, Venus Freeze, Accent®, VelaSmooth™, VelaShape™ and other non-ablative radiofrequency devices that have been developed and perfected by SpaMedica take approximately 20 minutes per zone each treatment will generally require a series of radiofrequency treatments once a week for four to six weeks to achieve the ultimate improvement in body contouring, skin tightening, fat reduction and cellulite removal.

How long is the recovery period following Exilis therapy?

There is no recovery following Exilis and other radiofrequency treatment devices. There may be some mild swelling and redness, or erythema, but patients can return to activities of daily living immediately, including high-impact aerobic activity.

What kind of results can I expect from an Exilis fat reduction program?

Patients who have undergone a SpaMedica combination body contouring program using radiofrequency energy bulk heating and fat reduction devices such as Exilis, BodyFx™, Accent, Venus Freeze or Thermage Body in combination with other energy sources such as UltraShape high-frequency focused ultrasound, Zerona low-energy laser level therapy can expect a significant and noticeable circumferential reduction in body contour. In general, between two and six centimetres of circumferential reduction can be achieved or approximately one dress or pants size. Additional benefits of the SpaMedica body contouring programs include enhanced skin tightening and improvement in appearance of cellulite (lumpy, bumpy, cottage cheese skin).

What are patients saying about their Exilis experience?

Toronto non-surgical liposuction and fat reduction patients are quite unanimous in commenting on the high-tech and sophisticated nature of the SpaMedica combination programs. Most non-surgical liposuction centres will offer you a single technology, whereas Dr. Mulholland and SpaMedica, as pioneers in the non-surgical liposuction and fat reduction space and procedures, offer the best combination energy system devices to maximize and optimize the focal reduction of fat, improvement of cellulite and tightening of skin.

How long will my fat reduction results last?

SpaMedica’s non-surgical liposuction programs for fat reduction are designed to kill the fat and tighten skin. The dead fat cells do not return and therefore any body contouring improvement is thereby permanent. However, this does demand patients to be disciplined in weight loss or weight gain following their SpaMedica non-surgical liposuction and fat reduction program and any weight gain will be manifested in excess carbohydrates being deposited in other body contouring areas outside of the treatment zone, which will compromise appearance. Patients are generally very happy as long as they are realistic – realistic meaning that the body contouring improvement achieved with non-surgical liposuction techniques will be the best that can be achieved without liposuction surgery but minimally-invasive SmartLipo and BodyTite or VASERLipo are still the best opportunities for contour improvement.

Is there any maintenance required after my Exilis treatment program?

There is no specific maintenance required once you’ve finished your Exilis radiofrequency fat reduction contouring program. Radiofrequency fat contouring, using devices that permanently kill the fat cell do not require maintenance, as the fat cell has already undergone a death cycle. However, the skin tightening improvement, with 25% increase in dermal thickness and the inelasticity improvement does require maintenance. As we age, the skin gets lax and loses its elasticity. The improvements achieved with cellulite reduction and skin tightening does require a single maintenance treatment once every three to four months to maintain the improved appearance and texture of the skin that has been achieved.

How much will the Exilis non-surgical liposuction and fat reduction program cost?

The cost of the SpaMedica non-surgical liposuction fat reduction and cellulite improvement program is related to the size of the zone and the number of zones treated. In general, each zone is treated for 20 minutes, once a week for approximately four to six weeks, depending on the combination technologies deployed. The total cost is generally under $2,000 or roughly one-third the price of liposuction for that treatment zone. SpaMedica also offers patient financing and the cost of your non-surgical liposuction program can be financed over several years.
