Many things cause saggy skin, including weight loss, pregnancy and ageing. Until recently, going under the knife was one of the only ways of rectifying this. If someone was unhappy with saggy skin, an invasive surgical procedure was the only option for treatment. However, the Exilis Ultra 360 has changed this. Saggy skin can now be tightened in a non-invasive and non-surgical way using unique technology. It’s easy to see why this is the preferred route of anyone looking to have sagging skin tightened. Below, we review how the Exilis Ultra 360 has transformed the world of aesthetics.
What Makes the Exilis Ultra 360 Unique?
There are a lot of people out there who suffer from saggy skin, so you certainly aren’t alone. Though there is nothing wrong with having saggy skin, and it’s not harmful, it can significantly impact your self-esteem and confidence. This is why the Exilis Ultra 360 has become the ‘go-to’ treatment for many people. It tightens saggy skin on the face and body in a non-invasive way.
When energy is distributed into the dermis – the middle layer of your skin – without cooling, the skin is tightened. However, when this is done with skin cooling, the skin is targeted on a much deeper level. The Exilis Ultra 360’s advanced cooling technology ensures energy reaches the deeper layers of skin, called the hypodermis, and destroys fat cells. This helps to remove unwanted fat areas that were previously resistant to diet and exercise. The Exilis Ultra 360 works effectively with or without skin cooling technology, depending on the specific treatment and desired results. This makes it a versatile treatment option that can be tailored depending on whether it’s used on the body or the face.
This is one of the main reasons why the Exilis Ultra 360 is popular. On the face, skin tightening without skin cooling is essential. If too much fat is removed from the face, you risk looking gaunt and tired. Skin cooling technology can be used on the body to create a flatter and tighter appearance. The Exilis Ultra 360 is capable of being used in both ways.
How Does the Exilis Ultra 360 Work?
The Exilis Ultra 360 combines radiofrequency (RF) and micro-focused ultrasound (HIFU) to treat various body areas. Though the Exilis Ultra 360 can be used on any part of the body, the face and fattier areas of the body are commonly targeted. On the face, it’s on the cheeks, mouth, forehead, jawline, jowls and around the eyes that the Exilis Ultra 360 is often used. On the body, it tends to be arms, thighs, knees and breast areas. This is because these parts are ‘problem’ areas for many people.
The Exilis Ultra 360 works by being able to target the skin at different depths. It can target the epidermis, the outer layer of skin, and deeper layers beneath the surface. By utilising RF and HIFU, the Exilis Ultra 360 can effectively target areas of the body with various skin thicknesses and depths.
Using a specialist applicator, the Exilis Ultra 360 focuses thermal energy on the targeted area, encouraging the collagen within the skin to tighten. This is done for around four to five minutes at a temperature of around 40 to 42°C. Collagen begins to break down when it’s heated, and new collagen fibres start to form. These new collagen fibres help to smooth the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The new collagen fibres help to tighten sagging skin, which creates a more youthful and rejuvenated look. This is not painful, and you will likely experience nothing more than a slight warming sensation.
When the Exilis Ultra 360 is used on the body, Hot Sculpting technology can be used. By heating the epidermis layer of the skin to around 45℃, the Exilis Ultra 360 can destroy fat cells and pockets of fat that have failed to be removed via diet and exercise efforts.
The Benefits of Exilis Ultra 360
There are several benefits of Exilis Ultra 360 treatment, which is why it’s such a popular option for those with unwanted saggy skin.
- The main benefit is that the treatment is entirely painless, and it’s unlikely that you will experience anything more than a heating sensation. This is relaxing and gentle, and some people even find it to be an enjoyable experience.
- There is no recovery or downtime after Exilis Ultra 360 treatment, and you can resume normal activities immediately. This is not the case with a lot of skin-tightening treatments.
- Skin tightening treatment using Exilis Ultra 360 technology is relatively quick, and most treatments are complete within 20 minutes to one hour. The exact time required for treatment depends on the size of the treated area, but anything longer than one hour is uncommon.
- Exilis Ultra 360 treatment is safe, and this is because it relies heavily on RF. RF has been used in the medical field for many years and is considered safe for most people. However, those with pacemakers or metal plates in the treatment area must avoid Exilis Ultra 360.
- Many people can use Exilis Ultra 360, which means it is a versatile and broad treatment option. However, it’s not recommended for those with severe heart disease or connective and muscular tissue diseases. It’s also not suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women.
Is Exilis Ultra 360 a Pain-Free Treatment Option?
Yes, tightening saggy skin with the Exilis Ultra 360 is painless, and it’s rare to experience anything other than a simple heating sensation. However, the skin might be slightly tender to the touch for a short time after the session. This is not something everyone experiences, and it’s likely only to last a short time. You might also experience some pinkness or redness of the skin after Exilis Ultra 360 treatment, but only for a few minutes. This is not painful, and it subsides very quickly.
There are very few risks associated with Exilis Ultra 360, and most people undergo skin tightening treatment without a single side effect. Numbness, swelling, scarring, nausea and blistering and allergic reactions are all possible but rare.
