The Drs TV: Exilis Non-Surgical Skin Tightening Treatment
Many of us would like to have firmer skin, but weight gain or pregnancy can sometimes stand in the way of that goal. Over the years, most of us have learned about surgical procedures such as Liposuction, which can help remove excess fat from certain areas of the body to create a smoother, more polished appearance.
But as with any surgery, there are risks to going under the knife, and the costs can also add up quickly. New technology is helping to alleviate some of those concerns. You can read more about one such innovation, Tumescent Calf Liposuction.
The Drs: Exilis Skin Tightening vs Liposuction
Dr. Andrew Ordon and Dermatologist Dr. Ava Shamban had yet another new technology to share in the procedure room. It’s called Exilis, a new radiofrequency tissue tightening device. Dr. Ava’s patient, Sarah, recently had twins and hopes the procedure can help her with some of her stretch marks, excess fat, and loose skin.
Exilis Skin Tightening Review
Dr. Ava said the Exilis device feels like a hot stone massage, heating the skin at deep as well as superficial levels to promote tissue tightening and fat shrinkage at the same time. Dr. Andrew said that tightening helps to smooth the skin. Previous advances in this area only focused on heating the deep skin layers, but this device simultaneously heats dermal and subdermal skin layers for better results.
Exilis Vs Tummy Tuck
The Doctors showed some Before and After picture treatments. It could take up to four treatments, but you don’t have to go under the knife to get a smoother stomach. Dr. Ava Shamban said this treatment runs $800 to $1,500, which is cheaper than a traditional Tummy Tuck procedure.
