Patients in New Orleans ask, "Are there risks involved in Exilis treatments?"

On paper, weight loss seems simple. Eat healthy, consume less, and engage in exercise. While that formula may work to make the numbers on the scale go down, it doesn't always address areas of stubborn fat that can be extremely troublesome. In addition, age takes a toll on the elasticity of the skin. Loose, sagging skin can also take away from beautiful body contours. At Lupo Center in New Orleans, we have a solution to difficult fat deposits and sagging skin. We can help you love the reflection in the mirror.

Exilis is a non-surgical alternative to liposuction that produces amazing results. We use a handheld device that emits monopolar radio frequency to targeted areas. The energy penetrates the layers of tissue beneath the skin, heating the fat cells and causing them to break down. In addition, Exilis stimulates collagen regeneration, which can help tighten skin and increase firmness in the area.

Exilis treatments begin with a consultation. Dr. Lupo will perform an examination and you will have the opportunity to share your concerns and your ultimate goals with non-invasive body contouring. It is important to note that Exilis is not designed for weight loss. Ideal candidates will be within a healthy weight range and in good overall health. Exilis simply works to address troublesome areas that are not responsive to healthy diet and exercise alone.

Results from Exilis will gradually occur over the course of your treatment plan. Most patients end up with around four to six sessions over the course of several months. Many patients experience up to two inches of fat loss with Exilis. It is important to increase water intake during Exilis treatments to maximize results. Each Exilis session is usually complete in under an hour.

Many patients ask, "Are their risks with Exilis?" As with any cosmetic procedure, there is a chance of side effects. Some patients may experience swelling or redness following treatment. This is temporary and will resolve within a few days.

If you are ready to find out what Exilis is all about, call Lupo Center today and set up your consultation.
