Elixis Non-surgical Liposuction

  • How does Elixis work?

    The Exilis uses radio frequency energy and the new generation advanced technology delivers a safe uniform distribution of RF energy, eliminating energy peaks. The resultant heat energy is targeted below the skins surface, volumetrically heating the deeper tissues of the undesirable fat layers and induces shrinkage of the fat cells by ramping up their metabolic activity and stimulates the generation of new collagen. This RF process leads to circumference reduction and also in improvement in the appearance of cellulite.

  • How frequent and how long are procedures?

    Each treatment is a quick 30 to 45 minute visit, scheduled 7-14 days apart. Exilis treatments are recommended in packages of 4 to 6 treatments to achieve the best effect. Maximum results are seen at three months post series.

    Everyone is different, but in general most people begin to see a measurable difference after only 2or 3 visits and see excellent results after only 4 treatment sessions.
