What New Orleans area patients can expect before, during, and after Exilis skin tightening treatment

At the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology, we assist New Orleans area patients with a wide range of medical and cosmetic solutions for the skin and body. Dr. Mary Lupo is a board certified dermatologist who is proud to offer some of the latest technologies to help patients achieve a more attractive look. This includes the use of a treatment known as Exilis.

Exilis has been used by many of our patients looking for skin tightening. It uses radio frequency energy administered through a special device right to the facial skin to stimulate the production of collagen and tighten the skin. On the face and around the jaw line, it can tighten these areas and provide a more youthful appearance over the course of several weeks. Exilis works over time, not immediately, and our patients love the gradual results.

Exilis skin tightening is often requested by patients in our practice and we encourage individuals to ask questions before their treatment to learn about how it works. Many of our patients are educated on what to expect before, during, and after their Exilis sessions.


Prior to having Exilis performed, patients are evaluated to determine if they are appropriate candidates. They may also be introduced to alternative treatments to decide which is right for them. Patients can schedule their Exilis appointment the same day or at another time once they have undergone their initial consultation appointment with Dr. Mary Lupo.


Exilis treatment is performed in our office under the care and direction of a dedicated, highly trained professional. The device emits radio frequency energy which feels warm, but not uncomfortable, to patients. The device is moved around the treatment area for even application of the radio frequency energy for effective results.


After treatment, patients may experience some redness of the skin in the treatment area; however, this is minor and will go away within a day or two after treatment. There is no downtime needed so patients can return to their busy daily activities without interruption.
