BTL Exilis in Houston, TX
WHAT TO EXPECT
The Combined Power of Radiofrequency (RF) and Ultrasound Technology
Radiofrequency energy has demonstrated its ability to improve skin laxity and diminish the appearance of facial lines and wrinkles by triggering an increase in production of dermal collagen and elastin. In a study featured in the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology in 2014, The Exilis® system reduced skin laxity by 35%, wrinkles by 42%, and photodamage by 33%. RF energy is delivered to various layers of skin tissue painlessly, thanks to the system’s controlled heating and cooling mechanism, which ensures utmost comfort and safety.
Dr. Bachilo will design a treatment plan tailored just for you to address your unique combination of concerns and conditions. The BTL Exilis® treatment system is ideal for tightening sensitive facial skin, and is most often used to treat the following facial areas:
- Chin and jaw line to reduce excess submental fat and sagging skin
- Upper face to reduce the appearance of deep furrows in the brow area and worry lines in the forehead
- Lips and mouth to minimize fine vertical lines and tighten thin, lax skin
- Neck and throat to treat sagging double chin and bands of loose skin that produce the “turkey neck” effect
- Sagging eyelids and bags under the eyes
- Wrinkles and lines anywhere in the face
The Procedure: What to Expect
The BTL Exilis® system is designed to deliver powerful heat energy to the deeper layers of fat beneath the surface of the skin, while keeping the surface layers cool to prevent surface skin injury. The system not only tightens skin but also shrinks and destroys fat cells, which your body’s lymphatic system will naturally eliminate over time.
While the procedure is painless, the skin may appear flushed in the treatment areas and may feel sensitive for about 20-30 minutes as a result of the heat delivered by the treatment. You may apply makeup immediately after this flush subsides, and the treatment requires no downtime, so you may resume your daily activities immediately after leaving our office.
In most cases, patients require between two and four treatment sessions scheduled one to two weeks apart. To maintain optimal results, maintenance treatments are recommended every 12 – 18 months.
