Plastic surgery can be expensive and invasive. This forces some people to accept the fact that they do not look the way they once did and that they can’t do anything about it. Now, there is a different answer. Exilis Protégé Elite is the latest procedure for skin tightening that isn’t surgery and doesn’t cost nearly as much as surgical procedures. This device is not a fat burning device, however and is intended for tightening skin that is lax from the aging process as well as weight loss and pregnancy.
The Exilis Protégé Elite uses high frequency radio waves to stimulate the production of collagen in the skin. Collagen is the protein that works with elastin to help your skin maintain its youthful shape.
As you age, the body’s collagen degrades. That’s why you begin to observe wrinkles and fine lines in your skin.
The Exilis Protégé Elite replenishes the collagen, so many positive things can occur afterwards. For example, along with skin tightening and a reduction in the appearance of your wrinkles and stretch marks, you will notice that your skin sags less than it did before your treatment.
Which Areas Can Be Treated?
Because collagen and elastin are located throughout the body, you can develop wrinkles anywhere and everywhere. The good news is that the Exilis Protégé Elite is a small portable machine that can be used on many different areas. For example, if you are unhappy with the sagging in your knees, the Exilis Protégé Elite can be applied to this location. It can also be used to tighten the skin on your arms, thighs, abdomen, neck, buttocks, ankles and back as well all facial areas including jowls, eyes, foreheads, mouths, chins, neck, etc.
How Does the Exilis Protégé Elite Work?
The specialist places the Exilis Protégé Elite on the area to be treated. Then, the device heats the deep layers of the skin to stimulate the production of collagen. At the same time, the machine cools the skin so that the patient does not experience any discomfort.
This procedure is extremely safe. After all, the Food and Drug Administration approved the Exilis Protégé Elite specifically for use in non-invasive cosmetic procedures that target wrinkles.
The Exilis Protégé Elite is so easy to tolerate that the practitioners never need to administer anesthesia before they perform the procedure. Because there is no pain during the process, patients do not feel any discomfort after it is over, so you can resume your normal activities after you leave the office.
What Can You Expect?
You can expect your practitioner to schedule your appointments one or two weeks apart. You can also expect to see marked improvement about 90 days after you complete your third treatment. However, some people don’t see improvement until after six months have passed while others see the start of improvement within a matter of days of each treatment . To maintain the look, your practitioner may suggest that you have one maintenance touch-up treatment every six months to one year.
