No one wants to see the gradual signs of aging develop on their face. Skin laxity occurs due to natural volume loss coupled with collagen and elastin breakdown which causes skin to sag. This also contributes to the development of fine lines and wrinkles. Patients who visit Pierre Skin Care Institute to see Dr. Peterson Pierre are often interested in finding out more regarding treatments available to target these concerns. Our board certified dermatologist often suggests noninvasive treatments readily available including Exilis Elite.
“Thank you so much Dr. Pierre for being so warm and gentle. Your fingers were light as feathers and made my experience a delight! Honestly, you have been the nicest doctor I’ve dealt with. So thanks again for all you’ve done. Until next time.” – Dana
Exilis Elite is an award winning, no-downtime, no-pain, in-office procedure used for skin tightening as well as noninvasive fat removal and body contouring. It is used to tone skin and improve skin texture by heating the subcutaneous tissue between the skin and muscle using radiofrequency energy. It stimulates collagen remodeling by gently warming the skin, heating up the collagen triple-helix structure, unraveling it and allowing the skin to naturally produce new collagen fibers. This tightens the treatment area over the course of several months and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles caused by skin laxity.
Exilis Elite can be used on many areas of the face and body. Common areas include the eyes to address crepiness; the neck to tighten skin and reduce fullness related to fat deposits also known as the “double chin,” as well as the chest to reduce the “river lines.” Exilis Elite is an excellent procedure for tightening and toning areas of skin laxity on the body. The collagen production helps provide long-term results without surgery, making this treatment one of the most highly requested procedures at Pierre Skin Care Institute. It can also be used on the abdomen, flanks, arms, and thighs to slim the silhouette and improve skin texture due to aging while simultaneously sculpting those areas by reducing unwanted fat from these trouble areas.
Treatment with Exilis Elite is easy and painless. Treatment to a single area takes approximately 20-40 minutes. During treatment, the Exilis Elite handpiece is constantly gliding over the skin in continual arcs and circles. The treatment feels like a warm roller ball floating over the skin’s surface. No pain medication or numbing cream is necessary. A series of treatments is recommended, typically 4 sessions spaced 2-4 weeks apart, depending on whether skin tightening, fat reduction, or a combination of both is being targeted.
