Skin Tightening

Why consider facial skin tightening?

One of the most telltale signs of facial aging is the sagging skin that begins to occur around the jowls, the midface and the brow. This can be very difficult to treat without a cosmetic intervention. Fortunately, our medical providers have created solutions geared towards helping clients to recover the healthy, glowing skin of youth while improving their confidence and quality of life.

What is the role of collagen in the skin’s health?

Your skin’s elasticity and thickness are determined by the amount of collagen your skin produces. After you turn 20, your collagen production will decline by 1% every year while your skin’s thickness will decrease about 7% every 10 years. This causes your skin to sag and creates wrinkles, and other insecurities. With the BTL Exilis, you can tighten and smooth your skin with this non-invasive and non-surgical procedure.

How does BTL Exilis work for skin tightening?

Good candidates for treatment exhibit the following qualities:

With the BTL Exilis, the ultrasound energy penetrates the skin at its deepest layers to create a contraction in the collagen fibers of your skin. This causes your body to rapidly produce a significant amount of collagen to create a tighter, smoother look and feel to your skin. The built-in cooling technology protects your skin from the heat of the treatment.

What can I expect from the procedure?

The BTL Exilis uses a handpiece to apply the radiofrequency and ultrasound energies, along with cooling, to the different areas that you want to be treated. There will be a warm sensation from the heat energy as it penetrates the deep layers of the skin. A cooling sensation is also engaged during the procedure, which protects the skin from the heat.

Patients have described the procedure as a “pain-free hot stone massage”. It’ll be performed while lying down, so you’ll be nice and comfortable. Depending on the severity of the area and the size, it can last about 30-60 minutes for the entire procedure.
