Exilis Ultra Skin Tightening
Exilis Ultra Skin Tightening & Fat Reduction
Body Sculpting & Laser Skin Tightening San Diego
Revive Salon & Spa is now offering Exilis Ultra in San Diego.
Exilis Ultra is the first Non-Invasive Skin Tightening and Fat Loss Device to simultaneously transmit radio frequency and ultrasound energy. By combining energies, the delivered therapy is safer and more comfortable with consistent results for a wide variety of areas on the body and face. As the radio frequency and ultrasound penetrate through the skin we can customize the treatment to focus on only fat loss and cellulite reduction, only skin tightening or combine both for an even stronger treatment.
There is no anesthesia, no side effects and no downtime after Exilis Ultra treatments. Optimal results can be achieved in as little as four sessions over a period of approximately four months. Each session is about 30 minutes in length but can vary depending on area treated.
Exilis Ultra Sculpts the Body
San Diego Laser Skin Tightening & Body Sculpting
The Exilis uses ultra sound and radio frequency energy to target below the skin’s surface directly heating and vibrating the fat cells which destroys them, without damaging our normal cells. Once the fat cells have been killed they are filtered through the lymphatic system, metabolized in the liver and excreted through urine. (apoptosis)
The uniqueness of this machine is it also has a skin tightening hand piece so that after we have destroyed the fat cells (through apoptosis) we can tighten up the collagen matrix underneath the skin thus combining both fat reduction and skin tightening giving you an amazing result.
The Exilis Elite is a non-invasive method of permanently killing fat cells (apoptosis) using heat. Treatment areas include: upper and lower abdomen, hips (love handles), inner & outer thighs, upper & lower back, upper arms, bum, front & back of thighs.
What can I expect at my appointment?
Each appointment will begin with taking pictures of the areas to be treated. Then clinician will attach a grounding pad on the shoulder or thigh, connect it to the Exilis machine and begin the treatment. The clinician will apply ultrasound gel to the area to be treated and begin using the applicator in a circular motion. You will enjoy a warm sensation during the treatment time. The treatment is nearly painless. Treatment time varies, but it averages about eight minutes per area. Immediately after your treatment you may return to your normal activities with absolutely no downtime, no pain, swelling or any discomfort.
