Blossom Again with BTL Exilis Ultra 360
Our skin is made up of three layers. The epidermis is the outermost waterproof layer protecting the body from external harm. The dermis is the middle layer, while the subcutaneous layer lies beneath, consisting mostly of fats, collagen and fibroblasts.
The dermis is an extracellular matrix of collagen fibrils which support the skin and deeper layers.
The elasticity of the dermis is attributed to the network of collagen and elastin, held together by hyaluronic acid, which moisturizes the skin. They are produced by fibroblasts, which decreases in activity as we age. They help the skin to repair tissues against wounds and scars, and enable the skin to spring back into shape. While fibroblasts produce collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, more collagen in turn produces more fibroblasts, improving the skin.
Ageing begins at the age of 20 and causes all three layers of the skin to thin. This is accompanied by a loss of collagen in the dermis. Collagen production decreases by 1 – 1.5% a year after we reach 20 years of age. With less collagen, elastin fibres and hyaluronic acid produced, the skin becomes saggy, thinner and more fragile.
Exilis Ultra 360 is the ultimate anti-aging and body contouring device that can penetrate the skin at all levels to stimulate collagen and melt fats. It also tightens loose skin, which is ideal when there is excessive weight loss. Collagen damage by the sun’s rays and smoking can also be repaired. The end result is better quality skin that is wrinkle-free – and a rejuvenated you.
Exilis Ultra 360
Exilis Ultra 360 is the next-generation treatment in body contouring. It simultaneously uses monopolar radiofrequency and ultrasound to form new collagen, remove wrinkles and restore skin tightness. Its 360 volumetric heating disrupts old collagen fibres and initiates the process of new collagen formation.
This helps to rebuild the fibroblasts in the body, which in turn produces more collagen and elastin, giving you better skin quality over time.
Exilis Ultra 360 uses both powerful thermal energy and advanced cooling at the same time to benefit only targeted tissues at the exact depth of penetration required for the best desired outcome. The device uses Energy Flow Control (EFC) to ensure the optimal level of energy is used safely and quickly. Radiofrequency causes fat cells to be removed via apoptosis, resulting in visible skin tightening and fat reduction. The end result is less wrinkles and skin laxity.
The Exilis Ultra 360 is a whole body, head to toe treatment. It can be applied around the eyes, forehead, around the mouth, lips, cheeks, neck and decolletage. It can also firm up the jawline and give it a lift. Furthermore, it can also be sued to shape the arms, love handles, hands, banana roll (an area under the buttocks), back, abdomen, buttocks, thighs and knees.
Exilis Ultra 360 is non-invasive. The treatment is relaxing and pain-free, and patients have described that the treatment as feeling like a hot stone massage.
Most patients undergo 2 – 4 treatments, scheduled 7 – 10 days apart, depending on the treatment area and skin condition. Each treatment takes between 4 – 30 minutes. While some patients see results shortly after the first treatment, results will continue to improve over the next few months after treatment.
