The lumpy, bumpy skin on the thighs and buttocks isn’t always cellulite. As part of the natural aging process, skin loses elastic properties not only on the face and neck but on the body as well. As a result, the skin on the arms, legs, and abdomen can look rippled despite good muscle tone and little underlying fat.
The Exilis Elite is a non-surgical office-based, FDA-cleared procedure that helps to tighten the appearance of loose skin. It can be used virtually anywhere on the face and body. The most advanced Exilis Elite device has twice the energy of the original to deliver superior results in fewer treatment sessions while maintaining safety and comfort for patients. The Exilis Elite uses radiofrequency technology to stimulate new collagen deep within the skin while it protects the top layer of skin with advanced cooling. The result is smoother and tighter looking skin after a series of treatments.
Exilis Elite Treatments at Capital Laser & Skin Care
After a thorough evaluation, the board-certified dermatologists at Capital Laser & Skin Care will outline a treatment plan depending on your goals and expectations. Your physician will recommend a series of treatments for the best results, typically ranging from four to six treatments depending on the location and skin condition being addressed. During the treatment, a deep heating sensation (similar to a hot stone massage) is expected. There may be mild redness to the skin immediately after treatment that usually resolves within several hours. Patients may resume regular activities after treatment with no restrictions. Treatments are generally spaced one or two weeks apart.
