What Is Exilis Skin Tightening?
Collagen is a protein within the skin that helps to boost and give elasticity to the skin. It is one of the most abundant proteins in the body, and also exists in muscles, bones, blood vessels, tendons and the digestive system. Collagen helps to give the skin strength, as well as to encourage skin cell turnover, leaving you with bright, healthy, youthful skin.
As we age, the level of collagen in our skin naturally declines, leading to an increase in skin laxity. On average, in women from the age of 20, collagen production declines by around 1% per year and the thickness of the skin will decrease by roughly 7% every 10 years. This can lead to drooping, sagging or wrinkling of the skin, something that many women and men struggle with as they age. This slowing in collagen production happens all over the body, including on the face. This can leave us with fine lines and wrinkles around and under the eyes, a loss of facial structure, changes in the shape of the chin, neck and mouth and other fine lines and deeper wrinkles. At Salon 167, Dartford, Kent, we offer Exilis Elite®, an award-winning, FDA-approved treatment that can be used to tighten and smooth loose skin on the face. It is a completely non-invasive and painless treatment with no downtime required, so fits into busy schedules perfectly.
Developed by BTL Aesthetics, an award winning aesthetics manufacturer, Exilis Elite® skin tightening treatment uses a radio frequency device on both the face and the body to help tighten the skin by triggering the process of collagen production. It works by applying radio frequency waves to the treatment area, gently heating tissues deep beneath the surface of the skin, which triggers the renewed production of the body’s natural collagen. This helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and strengthens the skin, causing it to look tighter, firmer, and more healthy and youthful.
Exilis Elite® skin tightening is ideal for both men & women from their early thirties to sixties who are looking for the cosmetic improvement of sagging skin, fine lines and wrinkles brought on by lowered collagen production on their face and body.
What Can It Treat?
Exilis Elite® can be used on many different parts of the face and body, and common areas of skin tightening treatment include the eye area, around the mouth, chin area, jawline, décolleté, arms, knees, abdomen and intimate areas. Exilis Elite® is a fantastic tool for facial skin tightening, as it can be used with a very precise head for smaller areas.
Exilis Elite® facial skin tightening addresses the following concerns:
Tired looking eyes and under eyes.
Flattening of the cheeks.
Lines from nose to mouth (nasolabial folds).
Lines causing corners of the mouth to turn down (marionette lines).
Loosening of skin around the jawline, creating the appearance of jowls.
The appearance of a double chin.
Loose skin on and around the neck.
Exilis Elite® is used to tighten the skin and stimulate collagen production, and is best suited to patients with mild to moderate sagging of facial tissues, usually those in their thirties to sixties. It is appropriate for all skin tones and types.
The Benefits of Exilis Skin Tightening
Exilis Elite® is a clinically proven and safe treatment technology, which can vastly improve the appearance of many signs of ageing including sagging skin, eye bags, fine lines and wrinkles, and loose skin around the chin and neck. It is completely non-surgical, non-invasive and doesn’t have any associated discomfort or downtime.
Exilis Elite® can be tailored closely to your needs for both the face and body using the different headpieces, ensuring your treatment is targeted specifically for you. It can also be used to enhance a variety of other non-surgical treatments which we may recommend for you in your consultation. For example, if there is a significant amount of redundant or sagging skin, which we sometimes see in older patients, we may recommend combining radio frequency treatments such as Exilis Elite® with Botox or dermal filler treatments to create the desired results.
