Dr. Athré understands that choosing the right cosmetic procedure can be a daunting task. There seems to be a never-ending stream of options and techniques that can leave you feeling overwhelmed and with even more questions than answers. Do you opt for a surgical procedure, or can you stave off the aging process with a minimally intrusive approach to restore your youthful appearance? If you want the same youth-defying effects as the more invasive techniques without the invasion, now you can with the BTL Exilis Ultra™ skin tightening treatment system at Athré Facial Aesthetics.
The BTL Exilis Ultra is a non-invasive handheld device that works to improve loose, sagging skin and reduce fat by using specific radio frequency and ultrasound waves in combination. It’s effective because it uses heat to cause micro injuries to the skin, which helps to encourage the production of new collagen that is thicker and tighter. This improved collagen network restores firmness and elasticity, effectively providing long-term skin-tightening effects.
However, the Exilis doesn’t just firm up loose skin to rejuvenate your appearance, but also has the ability to target underlying fat that may be zapping away your youthful look. By adjusting the heat setting to deliver the powerful energy deeper into the tissues, unwanted fat cells can be permanently destroyed. These broken down cells are then removed safely by the body’s natural process, creating the shape and contour to the figure you desire.
What sets the BTL Exilis Ultra apart is the ability to customize treatments to address your individual needs. Sessions can be tailored to focus on tightening up the skin, eliminating fat and cellulite, or both! Customized settings provide a variety of options so you can achieve optimal results safely and effectively. This is extremely important since skin thickness differs throughout the body; the skin on your face is thinner than the skin on your flanks. The unique Energy Flow Control (EFC) ensures the ideal amount of power is discharged to the targeted tissue at all times by monitoring and adjusting the levels as needed in real time.
Dr. Athré’s patients absolutely love the ease and convenience of the BTL Exilis Ultra. Continuous cooling helps keep the procedure comfortable and prevents damage to the upper layers of the skin. Skin temperatures are controlled throughout for maximum safety, and most of our patients are able to tolerate treatments without the need for topical anesthetics.
Sessions are quick so you can return to work and your normal life without skipping a beat. Of course, treatment times do depend on how many procedures you have done and the size of the areas treated. Although you’ll notice some effects immediately, Dr. Athré typically recommends three to four treatments for optimal results since the new collagen forms gradually and needs time to fully revitalize loose skin.
