New Treatment can Melt Fat and tighten Skin Without Surgery
Tired of belly fat you just can’t seem to lose or the love handles that persist no matter how much you exercise? Most men and women find those last few pounds difficult to lose, but thanks to Florida Skin Center’s newest treatment—Exilis, losing those last few pounds is easy, and a safe, non-invasive alternative to expensive treatments or surgical procedures.
The Exilis system uses radio frequency waves and electrical energy through an applicator that is massaged over the desired treatment area. This applicator cools the top of the skin while pushing the heat through to the fat layer. The heated fat cells’ metabolic activity is accelerated, which causes the fat to liquefy and exit the cell. Once the fat exits the cell, it finds its way out through your circulatory or digestive system. To promote the elimination of this fat, it is recommended that patients drink plenty of water and participate in light to moderate exercise (such as walking or biking).
After this, the cooling on the applicator is turned off which allows the focus of heat on the top layer of the skin thus producing skin tightening and collagen production. Thus improving skin tone and texture, resulting in a smoother appearance.
This treatment is very useful for patients looking to improve the appearance of target problem areas of the body, including the stomach, love handles, inner and outer thighs, chin, upper arms, breasts, around the eyes, and the jaw line. This system delivers lasting wrinkle reduction and skin rejuvenation all in the comfort of the office. The procedure is short—less than an hour, usually—and requires no down-time, allowing patients flexibility in scheduling treatments.
After the treatments, patients may experience some redness, warmth and tenderness in the area treated. These symptoms are generally mild and last from a few hours to a day or two. We recommend 6 treatments done about 7-10 days apart. Some have seen results after the first treatment, but most will see noticeable results within 4 to 6 treatments.
