Exilis is an FDA approved radiofrequency based device that is used to tighten skin on both the face and body. It is also used to reduce small pockets of fat and improve the appearance of cellulite on the body. When heat is applied to the area being treated, collagen bonds in the tissue are broken down and then new collagen production is stimulated. If the device is being used got fat/cellulite reduction, heat will liquefy fat calls and the body’s lymphatic system will process and flush it from the body. Best results are typically seen after 4-6 treatments.

There is no downtime associated with your treatments. Other than a brief period of redness and minor swelling, you can get back to your daily routine almost immediately.

Exilis is not a laser. There is no skin peeling, pigment change, or prolonged healing associated with it’s use. The RF energy heats the undersurface of the skin causing collagen remodeling.

Although you may see immediate results after your treatment session, the major portion of the clinical improvement is evident at 3 months following your last treatment.

During the treatment there is an intense sensation of heat which tells you the treatment is achieving its goal. There is no anesthetic required with Exilis Elite treatments.


You are not required to do anything special prior to your treatment session. If you are having a body treatment, please drink lots of water before and after your treatment to improve lymphatic drainage. Men undergoing facial treatments must shave the morning of the treatment. You may continue all medications supplements and vitamins during your treatment period.

Sun exposure does not affect the results of your Exilis treatment so you may be tanned when you have the treatment and you may tan following any treatment session, but this is not encouraged as UV light breaks down collagen. The Exilis device may be used safely on any skin type or color.

For body applications, it is essential that your sessions be repeated at 7-14 day intervals for 4-6 sessions. For facial applications, it is essential that your sessions be repeated at 1-14 day intervals for 4-6 sessions. Your provider will discuss your specific treatment needs.
