Exilis for skin tightening in New Orleans, LA

Keeping your skin healthy and looking its best is about more than slathering on sunscreen and washing every night before bed. Aging, sun exposure and weight loss can cause your skin to become loose.

Dr. Mary Lupo has been working with patients in New Orleans and the surrounding areas for more than 30 years, helping them find the best treatment plan to tighten their skin, improve their appearance, and even look younger. One course of treatment offered by Dr. Lupo is using the Exilis treatment system to tighten skin. It can be used on the face, neck, or on many areas of the body including upper arms, back, abdomen, obliques, buttocks, or legs. Exilis is a hand-held applicator that sends radio frequency to deep layers of the skin, stimulating the collagen that supports the tissue. This helps to rebuild facial structure, improve skin texture, and tighten the skin.

While the applicator is delivering high-heat radio frequency to the deep layers of tissue, the surface of the skin stays cool to the touch, keeping patients comfortable. Dr. Lupo is able to control the temperature precisely, which allows her to reach predicable and deliverable results in a short amount of time. Each procedure lasts only 20-45 minutes and many patients see results after only one session. Full results are usually achieved in approximately four to six treatments over the course of one to two months. Results last for at least six months before needing to have the treatment repeated.

The procedure is pain free, although some patients may notice that the skin on the treatment area may turn a bit pink following the session. This should subside in about 30 minutes. Patients can immediately resume normal activity for the remainder of the day, although Dr. Lupo does suggest increasing water intake and engaging in light exercise the day of the treatment session for best results.

If you’re looking for a solution to tighten your skin without undergoing invasive plastic surgery, call the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology. Dr. Lupo will talk with you to determine your desired results and will use her experience and expertise to determine if Exilis is the right treatment system for you.
