The benefit of the newer Exilis platform is that it delivers maximum thermal effect in the shortest time, while ensuring patient safety and comfort. Patients receive multiple, lasting effects from as little as 2 to 4 treatments.

Exilis Treatments & Results

Some patients begin to notice the slimming, firming effects after 1 to 2 sessions, while most see excellent results after 4 treatment sessions. Treatments are typically scheduled 7 to 14 days apart. Since there is no downtime required, patients can return to their everyday activities immediately after treatment. Minimal redness can be seen in some patients but it usually disappears shortly after treatment. There is no special care needed after treatment. As a part of good skin care, sunscreen is recommended.

During your consultation, Dr. Polacek will review your treatment options, including pros and cons of Exilis, potential risks and complications, recovery course, pre and post treatment instructions, and aesthetic outcomes.
