Exilis skin tightening treatment is an excellent treatment to create firmer skin. As a non-invasive treatment, skin tightening is most often performed on the face, neck, chest and hands to improve the thickness, laxity and texture of the skin with no downtime and minimal discomfort and risk. When you want a more youthful complexion, skin tightening is a perfect treatment.
Treatments for skin tightening are approximately 30-60 minutes depending on the treatment area. Although the treatment is tolerable, most patients assimilate the feeling of a warm sensation of the skin. Once complete, your skin will feel and appear warm like a blushing sensation.
The best candidates for skin tightening are those with early signs of aging skin who desire a more youthful appearance. Good candidates lead a healthy and active lifestyle, which includes appropriate exercise and diet, and do not smoke. It is also important to have realistic expectations and be committed to improving your skin and maintaining results under the direction of your skincare professional.
Exilis body contouring offers a non-invasive procedure that reduces wrinkles and targets small deposits of fat. This treatment also complements post-op laser liposuction to tighten skin after larger deposits of fat have been removed. A series of treatments are typical to achieve the desired effect, although improvements are often visible after the first treatment.
Skin tightening is achieved by using infrared energy to heat deep soft tissue. Targeted heating causes soft tissue coagulation and collagen contraction. The body’s natural healing process is initiated, resulting in a firmer, more youthful skin appearance. The full effect of treatments can be seen over several subsequent months.
