Often no amount of dieting or exercising can achieve the slim, firm figure you really want. Using the Exilis Elite device we have a powerful treatment which can sculpt your face and body to the achieve the contours you desire.
The Exilis Elite treatment is a non-invasive FDA-approved treatment for body shaping and skin tightening. It uses a combination of radiofrequency (RF) and ultrasound to deliver controlled heat and shockwaves to deep tissue below the surface of the skin. This shrinks the fat cells as well as stimulating new collagen production, leading to smoother, firmer skin.
Whether you are bothered by flabby knees, ankles or cankles, bra bulges or love handles around your armpits and back, bingo wings on your upper arms, a left over mummy tummy or a double chin and sagging skin on the face and neck, the versatility of the Exilis treatment means that we can target small pockets of fatty tissue and tighten the overlying skin for a smoother result.
The device itself is clinically proven and approved in various countries around the world to destroy stubborn fat, alongside improving the tone and texture of the skin.
It works by combining monopolar radiofrequency with ultrasound, alongside skin cooling, to deliver targeted heat energy which cause fat cell lipolysis, the breakdown of the fat cells, alongside immediate skin tightening and ongoing collagen remodelling. This unique combination of energy types means that we can use it to address everything from deep wrinkles and sagging jowls to love handles and saddle bags on the hips and thighs.
Positive clinical data shows that treatment with Exilis Elite produces generally permanent results, depending on onwards lifestyle and natural ageing.

How does it work?
The Exilis Elite uses a device which has two applicators, a larger one for body areas and a smaller one for the face. The tip of the applicator is placed on the skin and treatment involves almost constant movement around the area as it treats, delivering the combined radiofrequency and ultrasound energy.
It has an internal thermometer so we can deliver controlled heating to the deep tissues to reach an optimum temperature to break down fat cells and collagen fibres so the fat is released and metabolised by the body.
The collagen is also immediately tightened by the heating and new collagen production is stimulated. The built-in thermometer also means that, unlike with some devices, there is no risk of over heating or adversely damaging the tissue, simply delivering controlled trauma to achieve our aim.
Throughout treatment you will wear a grounding pad on your back to allow for the safe dispersal of the radiofrequency energy.

Your suitability for Exilis Elite fat reduction treatment will be established during a consultation with our doctor. A full medical history will be taken to ensure that there are no medications or conditions which will make you unsuitable for treatment.
Exilis is an excellent alternative to having a surgical procedure and is suitable for treating the following areas if you are generally fit and well:
- Full Face
- Neck/ Décolleté
- Periorbital (around the eyes)
- Love Handles
- Back Fat
- Thighs & Knees
If you are pregnant or breast feeding, you will not be suitable for Exilis treatment and will need to wait until after this period of your life.
If you have any serious health conditions, skin diseases or infection in the area to be treated, you will also not be suitable for treatment. Similarly, if you have any facial or body implants, such as metal hip joints, a pacemaker or metal dental braces, then you will not be able to have Exilis treatment due to the risk of them heating up from delivery of the radiofrequency energy into the body.
Due to the advanced technology of the Exilis, the treatment is relatively pain free. It has a unique cooling system that keeps the epidermis comfortable throughout the treatment. Patients can feel a slight warming sensation during the treatment but no real pain.
The treatments can take between 30-90 minutes, depending on the how many areas being treated and their size. A small area of the face and neck may only take 20-30 minutes.
You should aim to have your treatment sessions 1-2 weeks apart, depending on what we are treating.
A minimum of 4-6 treatments are required to achieve the desired results though most patients notice the difference from the first session.
There is no down time or recovery time after the treatment. The area may feel slightly warm for a 1-2 hours after treatment. It is important that you drink plenty of water before and after your treatment.
Superficial results can be seen immediately, due to the tightening effect from the heat.
Longer lasting results will be seen from 10-12 weeks, with final results and continued improvements up to 12-14 weeks after. To maintain the results for longer, we recommend a top-up treatment in 3 months.
Clinical data has shown that results are generally permanent if you maintain a healthy lifestyle and maintain your weight. Without top-up treatments, results can last for approximately 18 months.
