Exilis skin tightening is a dermatological procedure that uses radio-frequency technology to heat and melt fat under the skin; the fat is then naturally reabsorbed by the body. Its use also boosts the body's ability to create collagen. This results in tighter skin with less wrinkles.
Exilis uses mono-polar radio frequency, which allows it to penetrate deeper beneath the skin than other radio-frequency treatments. It is approved by the U.S. Federal Drug Administration to treat wrinkles around the eyes, and it can be used to reduce fat throughout the body. According to Dr. Sue Ellen Cox at American Health and Beauty, Exilis treatment is non-invasive, and it does not cause pain.
