For those seeking an alternative to liposuction in Kentucky, I often recommend a non-invasive technology we offer that reduces fat and tightens the skin simultaneously. The procedure is called Exilis™ RF Therapy, and it provides non-surgical body contouring for the face and body. Exilis has been FDA-approved and provides noticeable, lasting results with little to no downtime.
The Exilis system has many benefits over other methods of fat removal. Some of the advantages include:
- No surgery, anesthesia, or topical numbing creams required
- Short, comfortable treatments
- Suitable for multiple areas of the face and body
- Proven, long-lasting results
- Tighter, smoother skin and improved appearance
Exilis operates by using radio frequency energy to target problematic areas and heat up fat cells. The warming action speeds up cellular metabolism and causes the cells to shrink while simultaneously stimulating collagen and improving skin elasticity.
The total procedure time for Exilis is about 30 minutes, although this estimate may vary based on the area being treated. A computer-controlled device is guided over the treatment area, which causes a warming sensation on the skin. A digital monitor provides constant feedback regarding the skin’s temperature to ensure comfort and safety.
After Exilis, my patients typically enjoy smoother body contours and firmer skin. The results usually last about 6 months or longer when combined with an active, healthy lifestyle. Generally, I recommend 4 treatment sessions scheduled 7 to 10 days apart for best results.
