The Exilis machine is a mono-polar radio-frequency device. It uses radio waves that oscillate at 2 million times per second. These waves are focused using a hand held wand. The rapid 2 million per second oscillations cause the molecules in your dermis to rapidly heat up. While your skin is heating however, the Exilis device is continually monitoring and cooling your skin to prevent overheating. Treatment produces a rapid but controlled heating of the skin and subcutaneous regions. Lower focused energy plus active skin cooling equals a marked reduction in client discomfort. What was once a painful experience is now so comfortable no sedation or local anesthesia is required. Exilis radiofrequency stimulation unwinds and breaks old fatigued collagen bonds and stimulates your body to make new collagen. The end result is a tightening of the treated skin and a reduction in wrinkles. Your body may take up to 3 months to complete its new collagen production, so maximum benefits may not be seen for several months, though most patients see results sooner.

There is no use of anesthesia, nor any pain, gels, creams, numbing agents, needles and no downtime.

The clinician will apply ultrasound gel to the facial zone to be treated and begin using the facial wand in small circular motions. You will enjoy a warm sensation during the treatment time. The treatment is painless and often the client will take a nap. Time on the skin varies but it averages about ten minutes a zone. Each zone is treated in the same manner. After you are done you can get back to your normal activities immediately with absolutely no downtime, no pain, swelling or any discomfort.
