Fed up of struggling to get into your favourite pair of jeans?
Love handles are one of the most common complaints of women all over the UK, but there are options if the gym isn’t for you. One of them is non-surgical fat reduction – the most popular non-invasive treatment in the UK after Botox for 2014 – and the Exilis Elite has emerged as the go-to choice for celebs and regular folk alike.
It is an Award winning FDA approved device that offers a revolutionary non-invasive form of treatment for the reduction of wrinkles, reshaping of the body and reduction of targeted fat deposits, with long-lasting results.
The treatment uses safe thermal energy in a controlled fashion with a unique cooling feature to provide a comfortable but effective treatment. The Exilis can be used on virtually any area of the body and face. It can postpone or eliminate the need for invasive surgery particularly for patients with mild to moderate fat deposits and who may not be candidates for lipoplasty.
The Exilis treatment has been clinically tested and scientifically proven to treat laxity and melt fat within several painless treatment sessions. It has been cleared by the FDA for use in dermatologic and aesthetic procedures with indications for non-invasive treatment of wrinkles and rhytids.
The Science bit
The Exilis procedure uses a combination of high energy, mono polar, radio frequency and ultrasound to deliver deep thermal heat into the skin, resulting in collagen remodeling, skin tightening, and fat loss. It delivers accurate heating and cooling, plus real-time monitoring of skin temperature, combined with the beneficial effects of mechanical waves.
This constant detection and control of RF flow allows the treatment to reach temperature in the shortest amount of time, providing a comfortable treatment for the client with the added bonus of outstanding results. Using safe thermal energy, patients experience a comfortable deep heating sensation with each short treatment session.
The Exilis device is guided over the treatment area. You feel a warming sensation as the energy is delivered to the deeper layers of skin. It focuses the energy on the specific treatment areas at the targeted depth of penetration either to target fatty deposits or to causing the collagen supporting tissues to remodel, stimulating and strengthening the collagen network to improve skin laxity and texture.
Some pinkness on the treated area may show and last for about 15-30 minutes after the treatment. It is recommended that you drink more water on the day of the treatment and on the following day, and engage in light exercise to enhance results.
It is recommended for any patient between the ages of 25 and 70+ who desires cosmetic improvement without surgery. Two to six sessions at a rate of one every one to two weeks are usually recommended. You can have additional treatments if desired. Patients usually show continues results for at least six months after the Exilis Elite treatment.
