Thermage v.s. Exilis
Thermage is a non-surgical skin tightening procedure that uses radiofrequency energy to stimulate your body’s own collagen to contract resulting in firmer, tighter skin.
Process During the procedure, a hand-piece is applied to the skin surface. You will feel varying degrees of heat during treatment. The top layer of skin is cooled while the heat is delivered to the deeper layers of skin. Thermage treatments can take 45 to 90 minutes or more, depending on the areas treated.
Thermage does not improve deep lines and wrinkles. Unlike Laser Resurfacing and Intense Pulsed Light, Thermage can be used on darker skin, and works just as well as light skin tones. Our staff at Nouveau Cosmetic Center will be able to analyze your skin care concerns and see if Thermage is the right choice to meet your expectations.
After Thermage There is no downtime with Thermage and you can resume all normal activities immediately after treatment. The treatment area might have some mild transient redness. We encourage exercise afterwards, as well as hydration with water, to maximize cosmetic results.
Exilis Therapy is an FDA approved treatment that uses radio frequency energy to tighten skin in any area of the body or face. Exilis can also improve body contour and reduce fat in stubborn target areas. Nouveau Cosmetic Center is pleased to offer this new revolutionary treatment that is non-surgical, pain free and has no downtime.
Process During your consultation, we will advise you as to the number and frequency of treatments that are recommended which vary according to the amount of loose skin and/or fat that you want improved. Most people need 4 – 6 treatments spaced 1 to 2 weeks apart to get optimal results. The results of Exilis will continue to improve for up to 4 months after your last treatment, at which point you should see the full effect.
The Exilis procedure uses safe radio waves to heat your skin and targeted fat cells. This thermal energy stimulates and strengthens the collagen network which improves skin laxity and texture. Exilis combines radio frequency energy with cooling so that all areas of the body can be treated down to deep layers in the tissue.
While the Exilis energy is heating the top of the skin, you remain relaxed and comfortable as the system monitors your skin temperature, thus ensuring a comfortable and safe treatment.
After Exilis There is no downtime with Exilis and you can resume all normal activities immediately after treatment. The treatment area might have some mild transient redness. We encourage exercise afterwards, as well as hydration with water, to maximize cosmetic results.
