BTL EXILIS SYSTEM FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS THE BTL EXILIS SYSTEM?
The BTL EXILIS SYSTEM represents a wide range of non-invasive procedures treating both skin and fat on the whole body - from head to toe.
HOW CAN PATIENTS BENEFIT FROM THE PROCEDURE?
The BTL EXILIS SYSTEM helps our patients achieve more defined body areas, by reducing the fat bulges and smoother and tighter skin by affecting the skin collagen. When applied to the face the BTL EXILIS SYSTEM gives our patients a more youthful appearance by reducing the wrinkles, lifting and tightening the skin.
WHO IS THE RIGHT CANDIDATE?
The BTL EXILIS SYSTEM treatment is ideal for any adult patient looking for cosmetic improvement on their face and body. It is safe and suitable for those who want to address face and body concerns without cuts and needles. You can turn to this procedure if you want to firm and tighten skin, reduce fat (in areas that are resistant to diet and exercise), and reverse the signs of aging.
IS THE PROCEDURE SAFE?
The BTL EXILIS SYSTEM meets strict safety standards. The embedded Energy Flow Control system ensures that the exact amount of energy is delivered during the treatment. The integrated cooling allows your provider to target heat to proper skin depth to achieve the best results, while maintaining patient comfort.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE BEFORE I SEE RESULTS?
You may be able to notice results after the first or second session, which will improve over the following months. A consultation with a therapist will let you know what to expect, as well as the number of treatments you need to achieve your goals.
HOW LONG DO THE RESULTS LAST?
For fat reduction and body shaping, the results of Exilis Ultra 360 can last for a few years. Be reminded, however, that your lifestyle also plays a part in maintaining stable, long-term results. For treatment of wrinkles and sagging skin, the results can last for about two years, but this will still depend on every patient.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS DO I NEED?
Your BTL EXILIS SYSTEM provider will tailor the best treatment plan based on your individual needs. Most patients undergo between 4 to 6 treatments scheduled on a weekly basis. Each treatment of a specific body part usually takes between 15 to 30 minutes. This can vary depending on the treated area, treated indication, and other factors.
WHAT DOES THE TREATMENT FEEL LIKE? IS IT PAINFUL?
No, the treatment should not be painful. The BTL EXILIS SYSTEM provides the most advanced non-surgical solution, treating your face and body parts safely, efficiently, and without pain. Most patients describe the sensation of the therapy as being comparable to that of a hot stone massage. The treatment is performed in a lying position so you can easily relax during the procedure.
IS THERE ANY SIDE AFFECTS OR DOWN TIME?
As the procedure is non-invasive, there is no downtime or recovery period required. Your skin may turn slightly pink after the procedure, but this subsides within a few hours. You can return to your normal routines directly after the session.
HOW TO PREPARE FOR YOUR TREATMENTS
Drink 64 ounces of water or other non-caffeinated fluids per day the day prior to your treatment, the day of your
treatment, and the day after each treatment session.
If you have not had adequate fluid intake and/or you have consumed significant amounts of alcohol the night prior to your treatment, it is best to reschedule your session. Radio frequency is just not as effective in dehydrated tissue, which negates some of the effect of the treatment.
After your treatment, you must do some form of moderate exercise for 30 to 45 minutes to improve blood flow
and lymphatic drainage to the treated area.
