Face, Neck and Décolletage
BTL Exilis Elite™ is an award winning technology that works with Monopolar Radio Frequency (RF) and Ultra-sound to:
- Stimulate fibroblasts through different layers of the skin
- Stimulate production of collagen and elastin, and
- Help improve the skin quality, strength and texture
How does it work?
The Exilis Elite™ works by breaking down weak collagen with its heated Radio Frequency technology. Your body is then charged with the need to repair the broken-down collagen. As you age your collagen producing capabilities slows down and becomes less efficient. This is another reason why the Exilis is so brilliant. The heated action in the hand piece is what kicks your collagen production process back into gear, thus reintroducing a healthier collagen and elastin production rate.

What areas can be treated?
We can treat the following areas with our Exilis for skin tightening:
- Full Face
- Eyes (also known as Crows Feet)
- Nasolabial Folds
- Marionette Lines
- Décolletage, and
- Other areas of the body
How many sessions are recommended?
We recommend 4 treatments, spaced out at 1 per week for 4 weeks. Thereafter, we recommend a maintenance treatment every 4-6 months.
Is there any downtime?
There is no downtime with this treatment. Our patients are usually a bit red directly post treatment, but this subsides within a few hours. Make-up can be applied directly post treatment but we advise a mineral foundation that allows the skin to breathe. We stock mineral foundations and will gladly apply some for patients who need it post treatment.

You can also visit our BTL Exilis Elite™ Body Contouring page for more information on what you can expect with this laser in terms of fat reduction, body contouring, whether you are a suitable candidate or not and more. Please note that the body and face treatment differ in that the body treats skin tightening and fat reduction and the face treatment treats skin tightening and texture.
