The Exilis™ laser at Vein & Cosmetic Center of Tampa Bay is one of the most innovative new technologies available to help you reduce excess fat and tighten the skin. This non-surgical laser technique is not painful but the patient should feel intense heating during the procedure. This technique can offer a number of benefits, including:
Reduces excess fat in a variety of body areas
Diminishes signs of wrinkles and fine lines
Tightens the skin
Can be used to treat all areas of the face and body
For fat reduction, the Exilis™ Body Contouring Machine uses radiofrequency waves and electrical energy to liquefy and shrink fat cells by accelerating their metabolic activity. The procedure involves a computer-controlled device gently guided over the areas targeted for treatment. While the radiofrequency energy penetrates into deep layers of your skin, a cooling technique from the applicator will keep you as comfortable as possible during treatment.
The energy from the Exilis™ laser can also stimulate collagen in the area, allowing for a tightening of the skin and a smoother appearance. This technique is very useful for patients wishing to reduce signs of wrinkles and fine lines and improve skin laxity.
The entire Exilis™ laser procedure takes about 30 minutes to complete, depending on the size and number of treatment areas. This revolutionary treatment can often provide noticeable results after the first session; however, a series of treatments can yield the best possible effects. Exilis™ laser procedures can postpone and even eliminate the need for surgery in patients who are experiencing only mild to moderate fat deposits or signs of age.
Light activity and an increased water intake are often advised after treatment in order to maximize results. The effects of Exilis™ laser treatment are known to be long-lasting for many patients.
