New Orleans patients ask: "How do Exilis skin tightening treatments work without plastic surgery"?

At the Lupo Center in New Orleans, we meet patients everyday who want to make improvements to their appearance. Some have medical skin conditions, others are yearning to get rid of wrinkles and look younger. Patients who are struggling with aging skin and skin laxity may benefit from Exilis treatments.

Exilis treatments are a non-invasive alternative to plastic surgery that can produce significant results. The technique utilizes monopolar radio frequency to heat the layers of tissue deep beneath the skin. Dr. Lupo's technician administers treatment with a handheld applicator, gently massaging the skin and targeting the collagen network. The device delivers a cooling sensation to the surface of skin while simultaneously delivering deep thermal heat below the surface. Patients report Exilis treatments as tolerable and compare the sensation to that of hot stone massage.

Exilis treatments encourage growth and reproduction of collagen, helping to tighten skin. Exilis also has a different setting that is successful in reducing unwanted fat, while tightening skin. Patients will sometimes notice changes immediately, although results will continue to improve over the course of treatment.

Skin tightening with Exilis requires no down time. Patients can return to their normal daily activities immediately. To maximize results, patients are encouraged to drink several glasses of water the day before, the day of, and the day after a treatment and to engage in light exercise after a session, especially when fat reduction is preformed.

Exilis can be used to treat many different areas of the body. It is most commonly utilized to tighten skin on the face, neck, arms, legs, thighs, and abdomen. Treatments are usually completed in less than 30 minutes, depending on the area. Four to six sessions spaced two weeks apart are recommended for optimal results.

If you are in the New Orleans area and would like to tighten skin to improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, you may be a candidate for Exilis treatments. To learn more, contact the Lupo Center today to schedule a consultation appointment. During this visit, Dr. Lupo will perform a physical examination and discuss your areas of concern.
