The first and only family of elite devices to simultaneously combine radio frequency and ultrasound to tighten skin and address body concerns. The creator of the device, BTL Aesthetics, created this device to use radiofrequency waves to heat up specific layers of the skin in order to melt away fat and tighten skin. Many dermatologists have quickly adopted the Exilis technology to provide their patients with an alternative to liposuction and other surgery.
The Exilis skin tightening and fat removal treatment was designed to be painless and comfortable. There are no needles on injections involved, and most patients tolerate the procedure very well, without the need for any topical anesthetics.
How does it work?
The basic idea behind the technology has already been used in the field dermatology before, and revolves around stimulating certain processes within the skin by using radio frequency waves. By using different wave settings, the energy can penetrate the skin and heat up some of the different layers. For example, 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.
Exilis is also used for the purposes of fat reduction. By delivering the radiofrequency deeper into the tissues, the Exilis technology can “melt away” the fat. The actual process works by using energy to destroy the fat cells, which are then broken down and removed from the treatment area by the body’s natural processes.
