How The treatment Works
Everyone needs Laser Skin Tightening treatments to prevent collagen loss and/or to rebuild collagen and tighten skin. For many of the treatments we offer, there is no surgery and no downtime!
We have several devices for skin tightening procedures. Exilis Ultra and our newest device, Scarlet RF Microneedling, are radio-frequency devices we tested and confirmed provide an ideal solution to restore and/or prevent skin aging by rebuilding collagen levels from the deep skin layer to the top layers.
With our treatment protocol, we can target various depths of skin in order to maximize collagen stimulation at each level. After evaluating many devices we chose the Scarlet RF laser for its unique delivery of radio frequency energy into the skin layers as that is paramount in redensifying collagen and elastin in the deep skin layers. That process, in turn, creates natural looking results that gets better with time. Rebuilding the foundation of your skin from the bottom up creates tighter skin over the long term.
- Laser Skin Tightening is an ideal solutions for any face or body area with lax, crinkly, or loose skin
- Scarlet RF Microneedling provides deep new collagen formation by placing energy into the bottom layers of the skin and pushing radiofrequency into lower layers and upward to several skin layers.
- Exilis Ultra has two built in technologies: Radiofrequency and Ultrasound technology which maximizes bulk surface energy for the top skin layers.
- This combined technology provides the ultimate results for laser skin tightening
Types of Laser Skin Tightening Devices
Scarlet RF Microneedling
Scarlet RF Microneedling provides deep collagen stimulation by placing RF energy into the bottom layers of the skin and pushes radio-frequency waves upward through several layers of skin.
The radio-frequency laser energy is delivered into the skin with a cluster of thin micro needles. Unlike other microneedling devices, ScarletRF has a unique feature which allows the energy to travel in a vertical line from deeper skin layers to upper skin layers- with other RF devices the energy travels horizontally thereby missing upper skin layers. With ScarletRF energy is released at the correct level to stimulate dormant collagen. This triggers collagen growth thereby plumping, firming and tightening skin.
With ScarletRF skin tightening, we recommend a 3-5 sessions (based on skin severity), each 1 month apart.
Scarlet RF Microneedling requires numbing cream prior to treatment and has minor discomfort. Some slight puffiness and redness may exist for up to 24 hours, but many people still go out to dinner that night.
Exilis Ultra is unique as it not only has radio-frequency technology, but it also has ultrasound technology combined into one energy. That energy is driven from the top skin layers into lower skin layers and provides bulk surface heating in order to maximum energy and collagen stimulation at various skin levels from the top down.
Exilis Ultra is an ideal Laser Facial treatment if you are in the 28-40 age group and want to maintain skin tightness and collagen levels.
Exilis for laser skin tightening has no discomfort and no down time, making this an easy treatment to retain collagen levels.
Treatable Areas for Skin Tightening
This deep penetrating laser works to stimulate dormant collagen deep in the dermal layer in order to formulate new collagen growth which then plumps and tightens skin. It can be used to treat:
- Full Face
Frequently Asked Questions for Exilis Ultra
Does Exilis melt fat?
Exilis Ultra does have the capability to melt fat if we choose the correct settings for fat reduction.
How does BTL Exilis work?
Exilis Ultra uses both ultrasound and radio frequency energy. This combination promotes collagen production which results in a tighter, smoother look and feel.
How many Exilis treatments are needed?
For skin tightening or cellulite reduction, we recommend 4-6 sessions for mild to moderate skin laxity. Sessions should be spaced 7-14 days apart.
Does Exilis help cellulite?
Yes, Exilis can improve the visual effect of cellulite. Learn more about cellulite reduction on our page about Cellulite.
Is Exilis FDA approved?
Yes, Exilis is an FDA approved device.
What is BTL Exilis?
Exilis is used for skin tightening and cellulite reduction in any area of the face or body.
What is Elexis elite?
Exilis Elite has both RF and Ultrasound.
What is Exilis ultra360?
Exilis Ultra is Radio Frequency + Ultrasound + a Vaginal Rejuvenation Option.
Is Exilis safe?
Exilis has precise heating and integrated cooling with real time monitoring of skin temperature. It has been approved by the FDA.
Does an Exilis treatment hurt?
It feels like a heated massage. We constantly monitor the temperature and adjust as needed. Redness from heat usually subsides in a few hours.
Is there any downtime?
No. You can resume normal activities almost immediately.
How long do the results last?
Results can last 12-18 months - although we do suggest maintenance treatments once every 6 months.
Is there anything else I can do?
We suggest adding a RF Microneedling treatment as the microneedles assist in releasing the band density and allowing for a smoother skin appearance.
As You Approach
30-40 years old
An Exilis laser facial is an ideal preventative treatment to maintain maximum collagen production. Do it every 3-4 months.
40+ age group
You will need a series of 4-6+ sessions spaced 1-2 weeks apart to restore collagen levels. Fine lines and wrinkles will soften and your skin will tighten again giving you a more youthful looking you!
50+ age group
Deeper rebuilding of collagen fibers is necessary to re-firm the skins foundation. Check out RF Microneedling!
