Exilis Skin Tightening

Exilis is one of our newest alternatives to surgical body sculpting. The treatment uses radiofrequency (sound wave) energy to tighten the skin and reduce excess fatty tissue. Exilis Face is most commonly used to tighten the face and neck areas and to reduce fat under the chin. Exilis Body is used in our clinic to reduce cellulite, tighten and tone the arms, legs, and thighs; and to sculpt unwanted loose skin and excess fat from the waistline and abdomen. 

Non-Surgical Neck Lift:

Exilis Elite is an excellent treatment to correct sagging neck lines and jowls. The treatment uses multi-plane radiofrequency energy to tighten the skin and reduce excess fat along the jawline and upper neck. Most patients see results after a single treatment, but several treatments are advised to optimize results. If you are considering a non-surgical method of skin and soft tissue tightening on the neck, Exilis Elite may be appropriate for you. 

Non-Surgical Mommy Makeover:

Many of our patients are women who want to regain their pre-pregnancy bodies. Plastic surgeons refer to these procedures as a 'mommy makeover' because they promote a recontouring of the breasts and body after childbirth. In the past, mommy makeover procedures were purely surgical, relying on a breast enhancement procedure and tummy tuck to restore the body to its pre-pregnancy state. Dr. Karamanoukian at Kare Plastic Surgery believes in combining many of these procedures, or even replacing the surgical procedures, with lasers and RF to help restore confidence in women without lengthy surgical procedures. By complementing surgery with lasers and RF, results are improved and downtime is minimized. Exilis Elite is one of our most advanced non-surgical mommy makeover procedures in that it allows for a dramatic tightening of loose skin around the breasts, arms, legs, thighs, and abdomen. Our specialists can tailor an Exilis Elite procedure so that we can tighten, tone, and reduce excess skin and fat on the body.

The major benefits of a non-surgical mommy makeover with Exilis Elite is that it is non-invasive, has minimal to no downtime, and there is no need for anesthesia or surgery. If you are concerned about your body after childbirth, now may be the time to schedule an appointment with Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian at Kare Plastic Surgery & Skin Health Center.


Q: Who is a suitable candidate for Exilis Elite?

A: Exilis Elite is one of the most advanced treatments available for the cosmetic rejuvenation of the face and body. Suitable candidates for Exilis Elite are those seeking facial tightening or body sculpting. Exilis Elite works very well to tighten and tone the skin of the face, including the eyebrows, eyelids, cheeks, jawline, and neck. The Exilis Body handpiece is designed to tighten skin and also reduce fat deposits using a multi-plane tissue tightening technology. In our Santa Monica medical spa, we use Exilis Elite as a body sculpting tool to reduce cellulite, firm the skin, tighten the arms, legs, and abdomen; and to reduce fat along the love handles, thighs, and abdominal areas.

Q: What does Exilis Elite feel like during treatment?

A: Exilis Elite is an advanced face and body tightening treatment that is well tolerated by patients. Most of our patients tell us that Exilis feels like a warm massage when applied to the surface of the skin. Although numbing creams are not required, we usually recommend some numbing prior to treatment to minimize any discomfort.


Our office also offers Ultherapy treatments to help tighten skin on the face and neck. Ultherapy and Exilis are state-of-the-art technologies that offer amazing non-invasive solutions to common problems of facial sagging and aging. Ultherapy and Exilis are alternatives to a traditional neck lift, facelift, or cheek lift.
