WHAT IS EXILIS ULTRA FOR BODY?
Dr. Kathleen Welsh was one of the first doctors in the San Francisco Bay Area to offer Exilis Ultra™ from BTL. This is the first noninvasive treatment to deliver a combination of both ultrasound AND radio frequency to maximize your results. At The Body Clinic at Bay Area Cosmetic Dermatolgy our body team uses this combination of energies to tighten skin and/or reduce the appearance of cellulite.
Exilis Ultra is the first technology we can offer for the buttocks - no more dimples! This exciting new procedure is also effective for tightening the face, neck, chest hands, and submental area (under the chin).
If fat reduction is your goal, check out our Vanquish Ultra treatment which combines the Exilis Ultra with Vanquish ME.

AM I A CANDIDATE?
The BTL Exilis Ultra™ treatment is safe for patients of all ages and skin types who are showing signs of aging or want to improve those problem areas where exercise and diet just haven’t been sufficient. During a complimentary consult, one of the specialists at The Body Clinic at Bay Area Cosmetic Dermatology will help determine if Exilis Ultra is an ideal treatment for the area and issues you want to address.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?
One of our registered nurses will use the Exilis Ultra to deliver radiofrequency (RF) energy to the treatment area in a succession of pulses at one million cycles per second. While this may sound intense, it's very safe. To maximize comfort, your nurse will continuously monitor your body’s temperature using the Exilis Ultra device, to provide ongoing and accurate skin temperature feedback. This thermal monitoring allows your provider the utmost in temperature control and helps to keep you comfortable.
After the Exilis Ultra portion of the treatment, your practitioner will perform two to three minutes of Z-Wave Pro to further enhance your results. Z-Wave Pro feels like a mild pulsing sensation and is included at no extra charge.
Most patients find Exilis Ultra to be tolerable although hot. Some liken it to a hot stone massage. The heat can be an uncomfortable sensation for others. However, we can adjust our settings to lessen anyt discomfort. Be sure to come to your appointment especially hydrated (64-80 oz of water daily for two to three days prior to treatment) which will also considerably increase your comfort.
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
Results vary. Patients have reported visible improvements sometimes within their series of treatments, but full results can take 4-6 months following the completion of your series. For best results, it's recommended to follow the in-between treatment instructions, maintain a healthy diet and drink plenty of water.
As with any cosmetic procedure, results vary and we cannot provide exact estimates on how long it will take for you to see results or predict how your individual body will react
HOW MANY TREATMENTS?
The recommended number of body treatments is a minimum of 6 sessions. Treatments are usually scheduled three to four weeks apart, however we can certainly adjust the frequency to allow for your schedule. During your consult a body specialist will help you determine the number and frequency of treatments to meet your specific goals.
HOW DO I PREPARE?
Being sure to hydrate with at least 64 (ideally 100 oz) of water the day before, the day of and the day after your visit not only makes you more comfortable during treatment but also increases the efficacy of the treatment.
DAY OF: Absolutely no oil or lotion should be applied to the treatment area. If you have a navel piercing and are treating your abdomen, please remove the jewelry before your appointment.
It is also important to remember that nothing beats diet and exercise. Good dietary habits, sufficient water intake, and light physical activity are beneficial and optimize all of our body sculpting treatments.
There is no downtime with Exilis Ultra. It can be scheduled as a lunchtime procedure. Patients will notice redness and warmth in the treated area which will subside after a few hours. This warmth is equivalent to the sensation felt after a deep tissue massage and will not prevent anyone from their regular activities
