Dermatologist in New Orleans explains what to expect before, during, and after Exilis treatment

There are many reasons patients turn to Exilis, a body contouring and skin tightening treatment. Some people want to fit into their skinny jeans. Others want to improve the appearance of their buttocks, thighs, or abdominal area before swimsuit season. Regardless of the reason, they often rave about the results. They also appreciate the gentle and compassionate care provided by our well-respected dermatologist Dr. Mary Lupo and our team at the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology in New Orleans. As advocates of patient education, we understand the more patients know the more empowered and confident they may feel throughout treatment. Therefore, we take the time to explain what can be expected before, during, and after Exilis treatment.

Starting with a consultation

The first step toward more supple and tighter skin is scheduling a consultation appointment. Exilis is an affordable non-invasive treatment that costs less than surgery. We typically recommend four to six sessions over a few months for optimal results. A session is typically less than an hour. Many patients schedule their sessions during lunch breaks. There is no downtime, allowing them to return to their daily activities or work after a session.

Relaxing during the procedure

Not only does Exilis cost less than surgery but it is also a painless alternative. Patients liken it to a hot stone massage. We use a handheld device that penetrates tissues under the skin with thermal energy, providing a warming sensation. We can activate a cooling system to keep the surface of the skin comfortable while reaching deeper tissues. We use Exilis to melt fat cells as well as remodel and strengthen collagen, the protein that keeps skin firm and supple.

Following proper aftercare instructions

Following treatment, many patients ask about how they can enjoy long lasting results. We recommend drinking drink plenty of water and participating in light exercise for optimal results. We may also recommend making changes to diets, exercise regimens, and sleeping habits.
