Skin Tightening

We provide Exilis® treatments, the latest advancement in nonsurgical, pain free therapy for the reduction of targeted fatty deposits, skin tightening, and/or wrinkled skin anywhere on the face.

Exilis skin tightening works by stimulating collagen production within the skin. The specific radio frequencies unravel the collagen fibers, causing fibroblasts to start producing more of this protein. This can have a skin tightening effect in the long term, by building up the fiber network in the skin.

The combination of different radio frequencies and the cooling technology is further enhanced by giving your skin care professional a wide range of treatment intensity options. This ability to select different settings is absolutely vital for creating a customizable Exilis treatment. Why? Because the thickness of your skin varies depending on the part of the body that is being treated. Therefore, the combination of radio frequency energy and cooling strength must be adjusted for optimal results.

While the RF energy is heating the dermis, patients remain relaxed and comfortable as the system's digital thermometer provides real-time monitoring and constant feedback as to the skin's temperature, thus ensuring a comfortable and safe treatment.


During your consultation, you will want to explain the level of skin improvement & shaping you hope to achieve with treatment. We will examine your skin and your medical history to determine if you are a good candidate for Exilis Therapy. Together we will discuss your expectations and decide on the best treatment for you. Photographs may be taken for reference to compare your results.


During your procedure the Exilis computer-controlled delivery device is guided over the treatment area. You will feel a deep heating sensation as the Exilis RF energy is delivered to the deeper layers of the skin. The energy causes the collagen support tissues to remodel and tighten. The underside of the applicator provides cooling to your skin's surface, and the built-in thermometer lets the operator maintain constant temperatures keeping you more comfortable during the treatment. Exilis therapy is performed in our office. The procedure takes from 15 - 30 minutes depending upon the size of the area.


Our patients love it because skin-tightening with Exilis means:

  • NO downtime, NO pain due to controlled, gradual heating
  • NO anesthesia, NO numbing creams and NO after care
  • Reasonably quick treatment sessions
  • Progressive results that last
  • Treats all areas of the face
  • Best results after only 4 sessions
  • Scientifically proven and clinically tested worldwide


The number of treatments for you depends on the condition and the area to be treated as well as your desired results. During your consultation, we will advise you as to the number and frequency of treatments that are recommended to achieve your desired results. Keep in mind that the results from Exilis Therapy are gradual and may take from 2-4 months to maximize the effects of the treatment.


After the Exilis treatment you may notice some mild redness in the treatment area. This usually disappears in a few hours. You may resume normal activities immediately. Patients are also asked to increase water intake and to engage in light physical activity like walking to maximize cosmetic results.


General Information

You are scheduled for a series of non-invasive treatments with the state of the art Exilis Medical Device. Here are some things you should know.

The Exilis is a radiofrequency (RF) device that delivers high energy in a controlled fashion to the dermal/ subcutaneous layers of the skin.

There is NO DOWN TIME associated with your treatments. Other than a brief period of redness and minor swelling you can get back to your daily routine almost immediately.

Exilis is NOT A LASER. There is no skin peeling, pigment change or prolonged healing associated with its use. The RF energy heats the undersurface of the skin causing collagen remodeling.

Although you may see immediate results after your treatment session, the major portion of the clinical improvement is evident at 3 MONTHS following your LAST treatment.

There is NO PAIN associated with your treatment, only a moderate to intense sensation of heat which tells you that the treatment is achieving its goal. There is NO ANESTHETIC required with Exilis treatments.

You are not required to do anything special prior to your treatment session. We also encourage light physical activity after your treatment to help increase lymphatic drainage. Men undergoing facial treatments must shave the morning of the session. You may continue all medications, supplements and vitamins during your treatment period.

Sun exposure DOES NOT affect the results of your Exilis treatment so you may be tan when you have the treatment and you may tan following any treatment session, but this is not encouraged as UV light breaks down collagen. The Exilis device may be used safely on any skin type or color.

It is essential that your sessions be repeated at 7-14 DAY INTERVALS for 4 to 6 sessions, depending on your treatment needs. In order to see significant results, the Exilis treatment must be administered in this fashion.

Your Exilis treatment will be administered by a thoroughly trained RF specialist. Patients with a pacemaker, metal implants or who are pregnant or nursing may NOT undergo RF treatments.


  • Treatment with the Small Applicator
  • You may experience transient erythema (redness) that will last from a few minutes to an hour or possibly longer.
  • Your skin may feel warm immediately after the treatment, but this will dissipate quickly.
  • If you had your lower face or chin treated, you may have some tenderness in the area for a few hours or a day after.
  • Treatment of the eyes may yield some swelling and patients are encouraged to sleep on two pillows for 24-48 after treatment
