EXILIS ELITE Frequently Asked Questions

If you’re looking for a revolutionary treatment to restore your youthfulness, melt fat and cellulite at the same time, then EXILIS ELITE could be your answer. EXILIS ELITE is FDA approved to be used for reducing wrinkles and firming up loose skin, and an added benefit of the technology is that it melts fat and stimulates collagen production, too. Read more to answer some of the most frequently asked questions I hear about EXILIS ELITE.

How does EXILIS ELITE work?

EXILIS ELITE uses thermal energy that is generated by the most advanced monopolar radio frequency. The dual control handpiece has both DTC (Dermal Temperature Control) and EFC (Energy Flow Control) to protect the skin from heat that could harm it, while simultaneously generating consistent energy for dependable results.

The handpiece generates heat within the treatment area to cause the targeted fat cells to break down. This process of reducing fatty deposits also causes the sub dermal collagen to remodel and tighten, resulting in firmer skin.

Will EXILIS ELITE treat all fat?   

EXILIS ELITE radio frequency depth penetration addresses the subcutaneous fat. This is superficially located just below the skin and above the muscle.

What parts of the body can be treated with EXILIS ELITE?

The built in cooling system makes EXILIS ELITE safe for reducing loose skin and excess fat anywhere on the body. This includes the face, neck, jowels, décolletage, arms, back or bra fat, abdomen, love handles, thighs, knees, etc.

When will I see results?

You may see immediate results, but maximum results are experienced incrementally over 3 to 6 months after the last treatment. EXILIS ELITE treatments are usually done 1 to 2 weeks apart with visible fat reduction ranging from 1 to 6 inches of volume loss after 4 treatment sessions.

How long are treatments?

Each treatment, depending on the area of the body, takes about 30 to 45 minutes, but we ask you to allow an hour. This non invasive procedure can be accomplished on your lunch break from work. There is no downtime and normal activity can resume immediately. For treatments to areas of the face, there may be some mild redness and mild swelling, but this can easily be covered with mineral makeup.

What does the procedure feel like?

EXILIS ELITE is a safe and comfortable procedure, requiring no numbing cream or anesthesia. The treatments are comfortable and pain free by targeting the proper amount of energy while simultaneously heating and cooling the skin.

I hope that I’ve been able to answer your top questions so that you can see how revolutionary the EXILIS ELITE treatment is for firming skin, reducing cellulite and melting fat. Let’s talk about what EXILIS ELITE can do for you.

Melt Fat and Tighten Skin Without Surgery

Roll out the red carpet of non-invasive anti aging procedures because EXILIS ELITE is coming through! We are excited to offer you a very effective, pain free solution to sagging skin and stubborn fat. EXILIS ELITE therapy is the latest technology when it comes to aesthetic procedures for body contouring and skin tightening.

Lasers are very versatile and typically a great way to melt fat and tighten skin without surgery, but even they have a minor discomfort. I am pleased to offer another option, EXILIS ELITE. EXILIS ELITE is a clinically proven treatment to eliminate fat deposits and firm up the skin with absolutely no discomfort or downtime.


EXILIS ELITE uses the most advanced and sophisticated thermal energy available to give patients real results without surgery or downtime. Its clinically proven and FDA approved technology uses the most advanced monopolar radio frequency energy. This energy is directed through a dual function handpiece to target specific treatment areas. EXILIS ELITE provides maximum power with total control. By volumetrically heating the area, it causes the subdermal collagen support tissues under the skin to remodel and tighten and the fat to melt. Firmer and flatter skin without any pain or discomfort is the result.


With just the right amount of thermal energy, EXILIS ELITE gently, yet effectively contours the face and body. It can tighten, firm up, and tone sagging or loose skin on pretty much any area of the face or body. Stubborn fatty deposits melt away while the skin is tightened so there isn’t any saggy skin left once the fat is gone. All of this with no numbing or anesthesia, no incision, and no downtime.

EXILIS ELITE can tighten and tone these areas:

  • face
  • jowls
  • neck
  • chest
  • back
  • “love handles”
  • “bra fat”
  • abdomen
  • thighs
  • hips and buttocks
  • knees

EXILIS ELITE is ideal for people who would like their weight loss and toning to look like a natural progression. It usually takes a couple of treatments to achieve the desired end results. This gradual melting of fat and tightening of the skin along the way looks more natural because it is not a dramatic overnight change.

EXILIS ELITE Benefits in a Nutshell

  1. FDA approved treatment that has been scientifically proven and clinically tested world wide
  2. fast, safe and effective
  3. treats all areas of the face and body
  4. results are gradual, lasting and measureable

Refresh Your Under Eyes with Fillers

When you look at yourself in the mirror do you see dark circles, deep hollows, and tired looking eyes? If the hustle and bustle of the holidays put extra stress on you and it’s showing, you can turn to one of the most underestimated areas of the face to restore some youthfulness to your features: the tear troughs.

What are tear troughs?

The tear trough is the area under the eye that extends from the inner corner of the eye, arching down in a semicircle. The technical term is the nasojugal groove. When the tear troughs are sunken, they can cast shadows under the eyes that looks like dark circles. This gives the face a worn out appearance. The sunkenness also ages the face by creating a visible separation from what should be the smooth transition from the lower eyelid to the cheek.

Why do tear troughs happen?

The skin under the eyes is very thin and delicate. It shows signs of distress more easily than thicker skin. It is also more prone to the aging effects of gravity. The tissue laxity and volume loss under the eyes as we age leads to the tear trough becoming more prominent. Also, as fat gets displaced from behind the eye, or possibly increases and bulges under the eye, this can accentuate the aging of the eye area.

How can the under eye be rejuvenated?


  • getting more rest
  • cutting down on salty foods
  • minimizing your exposure environmental pollutants
  • not rubbing your eyes so much

While these tips can prevent the tear troughs and under eye bags from getting worse, you can also reverse their appearance with hyaluronic acid fillers.

Rejuvenate Your Tear Troughs with HA Fillers

While there are surgical options to reversing tear troughs, more people prefer to try non invasive treatments first. This has led to the use of hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, such as Restylane, Juvéderm or Belotero. When they are injected on top of the orbital bone, the HA attracts water to the area to restore volume. This gives the eyes a fresh, rested appearance by the next day after treatment. These results usually last 6 months to a year, and you can go right back to your daily routine with no downtime or recovery.

Side Effects?

There may be minor bruising or swelling, which is common with most injections. This can easily be lessened with an ice pack, and covered by makeup

Subtle Solutions for Significant Youthfulness

Filling the tear trough area is becoming more and more popular. More patients are realizing that facial rejuvenation can happen from restoring volume loss in subtle areas such as the earlobes, temples, chin, melolabial folds and tear troughs. One can definitely see a more rested, fresh, and youthful appearance for the whole face by applying HA fillers to rejuvenate the area under the eyes.

Are you ready to look more refreshed and younger by getting your tear troughs filled? Visit to schedule an appointment to see which filler is the best for you.
