EXILIS® in Orange County

The most noticeable thing that happens to people as they age is the change in their skin. Gravity, exposure to environmental toxins, genetics, and reduced collagen and elastin production all contribute to skin laxity.

Collagen and elastin are protein molecules responsible for your skin’s structure and elasticity. When you stop producing as much collagen and elastin as you did when you were young, your skin can begin to sag and droop. In the past, the only way to correct this was through invasive plastic surgery techniques that typically require weeks for recovery. Now, you have options for nonsurgical skin tightening.

Today, you can explore the options for EXILIS® in Orange County, which has a much shorter recovery, produces dramatic skin improvements, and promotes collagen production.

What Is the EXILIS® Skin Tightening Treatment?

The EXILIS® skin-tightening treatment uses a non-invasive device to deliver radiofrequency energy to the deep layers of the skin. This stimulates collagen production and improves skin elasticity. EXILIS is often used on the face, neck, and body to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin.

Most people need a series of sessions that last 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the extent of the treatment area. Most also experience minimal discomfort and often describe the treatment as a warming sensation.

EXILIS is considered safe for most skin types and is recommended for people looking for a non-surgical option to tighten their skin. There is little to no downtime after treatment, so you can resume normal activities immediately after your treatment session.

Before your treatment, you will consult with cosmetic dermatologist Dr. Lenore Sikorski, who will help determine your suitability for the treatment and explain how it is done. The EXILIS treatment process uses a handheld device to deliver controlled radiofrequency energy.

The device also has a cooling feature, so the skin surface remains comfortable while the radio frequency energy heats the deeper layers of the skin. Dr. Sikorski moves the handheld device in a circular motion to stimulate collagen production and tighten the tissue. A computer monitors skin tissue to ensure it remains within a safe temperature range.

Is the EXILIS® Treatment Right for You?

The effects of time and the environment have led to a significant rise in demand for effective non-surgical skin-tightening treatments. EXILIS® has distinguished itself as an approach that is unlike other options. It is non-invasive, which makes it highly sought after.

The treatment is suitable for anyone in Orange County who wants to improve the sagging skin on their face, neck, and body using a non-surgical approach.

We recommend that if you smoke or use nicotine in forms such as chewing tobacco, vaping, nicotine gum, or nicotine patches, you give it up. Nicotine products impair the production of collagen and elastin, which speeds the visible signs of aging. People who smoke will notice the results of their EXILIS treatment do not last as long since nicotine speeds the destruction of collagen and impairs the body’s ability to produce more.

Since the process requires little to no downtime, it is a convenient option for people with a busy schedule. However, most people need a series of treatments spaced one to two weeks apart to achieve optimal results.

What Areas of the Body Can Be Treated With EXILIS®?

EXILIS® can be used on a variety of areas of the body where want to tighten your and show firmer contours. On the face, the process helps reduce fine lines and wrinkles, or sagging skin around the eyes, cheeks, jawline, and neck.

Over the abdomen, EXILIS can be used to tighten loose skin that may occur after weight fluctuations or pregnancy. On the arms, it can address sagging skin, commonly referred to as “bat wings,” or the skin that flaps under the upper arm as you raise your arm and wave.

Over the thighs, EXILIS in Orange County can reduce the appearance of loose skin and cellulite in the inner and outer thighs. Finally, when used over the buttocks, it can help lift and tighten the skin, which enhances the shape and firmness of the area.

How Long Do the Results Last?

Unlike surgical treatment, which offers a semi-permanent result and only changes with age, EXILIS® results are temporary and highly influenced by your age, skin condition, lifestyle factors, and the number of treatments you receive.

Generally speaking, the results can last from six months to two years. You can prolong the results by supporting collagen production with balanced nutrition and avoiding prolonged exposure to the sun. Staying hydrated, quitting smoking, and using recommended skin care products can also help prolong your results. You can maintain the results by undergoing follow-up maintenance treatments.
