Have you considered techniques for tightening your skin?
In today’s youth-oriented culture, it can be tough to stay ahead of the game, especially when it comes to maintaining one’s youthful looks. The qualities that cause one’s face to look younger or older, depends on several variables. These include, but are not limited to:
What causes facial skin to sag?
Sagging occurs when structural support for the skin, called collagen, begins to diminish with age. Loss of collagen contributes to both wrinkles and volume loss, which gives the skin a more aged appearance. Other contributing factors include smoking, excessive alcohol and processed sugar consumption, lack of exercise, and inflammation.
Skin tightening provides an affordable, effective solution to this problem, by creating a more pleasing and youthful appearance. Not only does it tighten the skin, but it also helps reduce the appearance of unsightly wrinkles.
There are a number of different ways in which one can achieve skin tightening. Some try risky, invasive techniques, such as face lifts. Others, prefer non-invasive methods, such as laser skin tightening. One method in particular, Exilis, is quickly growing in popularity.
What is Exilis Skin Tightening?
Before the latest discoveries in medical technology, patients were given few choices other than mild, less effective treatments, such as retinoids, peels and certain types of laser treatments. The other end of the spectrum involved severe treatments, such as surgery or CO2 peels, both of which were risky, and involved extensive downtime.
Exilis is a a new, technologically-advanced applied science that uses RF (radio frequency) for the face and body, that is used for contouring and tightening the skin. This non-surgical procedure is performed right in your specially trained doctor’s office, and provides a middle ground. It is stronger than retinoids, peels and other types of laser treatments, but non-invasive, and less risky than surgery or Co2 peels. Exilis skin tightening works remarkably well to reduce fat while it firms the skin.
Not only does Exilis work in a deeper, specifically targeted way, it is non-invasive, and builds collagen by sending RFs to different layers of the skin. Treatments usually require skin numbing anesthetic creams, but require zero downtime.
How does Exilis differ from other laser technologies?
Exilis treatments provide a unique approach to tightening the skin and removing fat. It differs from other laster technologies, in that it provides deeper penetration of the RF waves, via means of its specially-designed grounding pad. As the RF is applied, it goes deep into the layers of the skin before enacting a complete return circuit back to the laser itself. While the laser is being applied, doctors can monitor its temperature to assure the heat is never excessive, thus creating a more pleasant experience for the patient. Exilis uses propriety technology, which enables the doctor to monitor the RF energy, which can minimize burns and the arching of the frequencies in case of poor skin contact.
In addition to being non-evasive, Exilis is less expensive than other methods of tightening the skin, and it is more effective. Patients tend to love the fact that the treatments tend to be painless, and have described treatments as being similar to warm massages.
The primary difference between Exilis and other bi-polar and mono-polar RF technologies is that the latter are not grounded in the same manner as Exilis. When Exilis treatments are being utilized, the device itself will shut off if the RF flow is not exact.
How long with the effects of Exilis treatments last?
The effectiveness and longevity of Exilis treatments depend on the individual, and the severity of the conditions treated. Generally speaking, multiple sessions are required for optimum results. However, the results tend to be long lasting. It is recommended the patients receive maintenance treatments after 12-18 months. Leading a healthy lifestyle is also recommended, which includes eating a nutritionally sound diet, and getting regular aerobic exercise.
