What is Exilis ELITE?
Exilis ELITE is the newest version of the popular Exilis radiofrequency cellulite reduction and body contouring device. It has twice the power of Exilis, meaning that results can often be seen with fewer sessions. This treatment is FDA-approved, safe, and effective for the right candidate. Most patients who have had Exilis ELITE treatments are highly satisfied with their results.
It is not meant for those who are looking to treat obesity or large areas of fat or significant skin laxity. Instead, it can be a great treatment for patients who have smaller fat deposits in specific locations that haven’t responded to diet and exercise. It can contour these areas highly effectively and lead to a more toned, better contoured body. Exilis Elite can potentially smooth and tighten the skin around eyes, mouth, neck and hands. Results are not guaranteed, and may vary between patients.
How does it work?
Exilis ELITE uses radiofrequency, or RF, waves to target and heat deep tissue below the skin. This causes the cells to shrink and skin to tighten, and also stimulates collagen production. Collagen is an essential part of the skin that maintains elasticity, but as we age our bodies stop producing as much of it. By stimulating collagen production, Exilis ELITE can create a toned, smooth look.
This treatment can also be used in conjunction with surgery or as a post-surgical touchup to help create smoother and more toned skin. It is not, however, a substitute for surgery. It could be perfect for people who only need to be rid of small, stubborn fat deposits and tighten mildly lax skin.

Frequently Asked Questions
We know that it can be difficult to keep track of all the procedures available for different problems. We’ve compiled some of the most commonly asked questions about Exilis ELITE in order to help you stay informed.
Q: What is the difference between Exilis and Exilis ELITE?
A: Exilis ELITE is simply the latest version of the classic Exilis body contouring device. This offers twice the strength of the original Exilis, meaning that fewer sessions may be required to see results.
Q: What is a procedure like?
A: Exilis ELITE works by delivering heat to underlying deep tissue, so during a procedure you will feel some heat in the affected area. This heat should not be painful, and you should not require an anesthetic. The device provides a cooling sensation to the skin’s surface, counteracting the heat and making the experience as comfortable as possible.
Q: How long does it take to see results?
A: Exilis ELITE is stronger than Exilis, so fewer sessions should be needed to see results. Dr. Isaac in Washington, DC recommends a minimum of three skin tightening treatments for optimal results.
Q: How long does a procedure take?
A: Generally, a procedure will last for under an hour. The exact amount of time it will take depends on the patient and the areas to be treated.
Q: What are the side effects and downtime?
A: Exilis ELITE requires no downtime for most patients. Usually you can be on your way and resume your daily activities immediately after leaving the office. Side effects may include some redness or pinkness around the treated areas, but this should disappear quickly.
