Who is Exilis Body Contouring Right For?

Exilis body contouring could be a good option for you if you need help with:

Skin Tightening and Weight Loss

Loose skin and sagging skin are often outcomes of ageing, as collagen and elastin levels decline. Collagen and elastin keep your skin tight, and help it to "snap" back into place when stretched. But, ageing is not the only cause of loose and sagging skin. Another culprit can be losing weight, especially if you lose a lot of weight quickly.

Regardless of the cause of loose or sagging skin, Exilis can help you to:

  • Tighten and lift the skin in target areas of your body that have begun to show early signs of ageing. In many cases this could be on the legs, buttocks, or stomach.

  • Reduce excess skin after minor weight loss. This will often appear as loose and sagging skin, especially if you've lost weight quickly. Body sculpting can be a great option if you have a small amount of excess skin that you'd like treated.

  • Lose weight without ending up with excess skin. You'll benefit from a reduction in both excess skin and fat, and keeping your skin tight during your weight loss.

  • Get rid of stubborn fat, which is most commonly on the tummy or legs. Pairing a healthy diet and exercise plan with Exilis treatment is great for this.

Usually, cellulite can improve a little with an exercise routine and meal plan. But, this won't get rid of cellulite in many cases however. This is where Exilis treatment comes in handy.

Connective tissue helps to hold the structures of your body together, and holds fat in place. When connective tissue is tense it pulls down on fat deposits, which forces the fat to bulge into the skin's surface. This causes cellulite, and the easiest way to get rid of it is to target the bulging fat. You can use Exilis to focus on the problem areas, to give you much better results than general weight loss!

Who is Exilis Body Contouring Not Right For?

You could read about all of the situations where Exilis body contouring is a great treatment option, but that would only be half the story. To really know if a treatment is right for you, you also need to know who it isn't good for:

Lots of Excess Skin

Exilis alone may not be the best option for you if you have lots of excess skin from significant weight loss.

You may first need to explore plasmapen non-surgical loose skin removal. In many cases this will give you a great benefit, but it isn't suitable to treat lots of excess skin. Surgery, such as a tummy tuck, to remove lots of excess skin is the best option for you in this case.

You may still benefit from Exilis treatment after your procedure however. Exilis treatment can put the final touches on your result, helping with rejuvenating and lifting the treated area.

Advanced Ageing - Sagging Skin

If you have very advanced signs of ageing it's unlikely that Exilis will be worth it for you. This includes sagging skin, as by the time your skin is sagging it is too late for Exilis to be effective. Similar to the advice with lots of excess skin, you may need a more invasive treatment.

Plasmapen or surgery are the best options for you here, depending on the degree of sagging.

  • Plasmapen can effectively manage minor to moderate sagging in areas such as the stomach, or even the face and neck.

  • Surgery is a better option for moderate to advanced skin sagging, in various areas of the body.

Weight Loss

If you're committed to having Exilis body contouring treatment, that's amazing. But you also need to be committed to following a healthier lifestyle with healthier habits. As we mentioned in our previous blog, 50% of your result is what you do outside the clinic.

You'll want to get the best out of your treatments, after all the effort of scheduling and having them. The best way to do that is not only to be on point with your treatments, but also with your lifestyle. Weight loss with Exilis is most successful when combined with healthy habits and being physically active. A weight loss program alongside your treatment program will get you best results!

There you have it; who Exilis is good for, and just as importantly who it isn't good for. It's a lot of information, but it's vital to really understand if a treatment is right for you, so it'll be very useful for you! Did you think of another question while reading this article?
