Physician to Physician Discussions > Exilis-Thoughts About?

I wondering if any one owns Exilis and have they been happy with it?

SkinMan11, it works good on some of my patients who have cellulites with noticeable lumps and indentations. This is also good for skin tightening.

I especially use this device for facial skin tightening. We are still exploring this device reliability for body fat reduction. Can any MD share their protocols/settings on what works best?

Is anyone else using Exilis? How are your results? Thinking of adding it as a service at my medical spa but real self is only reporting a 69% satisfaction rate... concerned about results...

Exilis works amazingly well. I've been using Exilis for the last 12 months and see no end to its potential. The results are achievable in almost 100% of patients. But to get to this point one must understand very well the technology. There is no template; each patient is different. If you are aggressive and your patient is well prepared the results are frequently stunning.
The company, BTL, provides great support, the device is flawless and user friendly, operating cost is negligible and there are no real consumables except for the grounding pad.
Above all, the key to success is thorough understanding of RF technology and reasons for each parameter. There are protocols but no templates. You must be aggressive, flexible and your patient must be well prepared for each treatment. The rest is pure satisfaction.

Steer clear of Exilis. It offers lots of promises but it does not guarantee results! Sadly. it is an RF treatment that is brutal on the operator.

How does Exilis compare to Sciton's Skintyte? Which is better?

We've been using Exilis for almost a year. It is truly the best device out in the market for skin tightening and body contouring. We've tried other devices but nothing can compare and beat this. Highly recommendable. But you should master the techniques well to obtain optimum results.

We have both Exilis and Skin Tyte II and feel they tighten the skin equally. The only draw back with Skin Tyte II on the body is you can not contour the area you are tightening. This is significant on body areas. Most patients even thin ones have contour issues if they have the need for skin tightening. Exilis will deliver both in one treatment.

We already have CoolSculpt so I was wondering if Exilis is significantly better. Coolsculpt can sometimes leave a "shelf" like change. Hard to estheticially feather out areas treated vs. not treated. Of course there is no tightening.

We have had the Exilis in our office since July and it has great results. Techniques and correct patient selection are very important. We have a few clients that have been to other places and have commented that we do it differently. We do it by the book. As a result they see and feel the difference. We are happy with Exilis.

Exilis is a great device slowly unraveling its full potential. Fat reduction results are outstanding with some modifications of the protocols and results comparable to much more invasive procedures. Skin tightness appears to require a slightly different approach and temperature goals. Overall, within the family of RF devices approved by FDA Exilis is unbeatable.

Being a novice Exilis user, we haven't had a lot of feedback as yet. However, I also think the training we received from the distributor was pretty minimal (we are in Portugal)... So is anyone prepared to go a little more indepth with regards to their treatment protocols?? You can pm me if you don't want to post in the forum.
Thanks.

Anyone care to comment between exilis and thermage ?
I heard the exilis is very good but the cpt is catching some attention as well.

06.7 | Unregistered CommenterMalek

Judy, CoolSculpt reduces fat volume in certain areas while Exilis reduces fat volume practically in any area of the body. In addition, Exilis provides skin tightness that is, in many areas, dramatic. Cryolipolysis is a great concept and I'm sure you can have good results.

We have had our Exilis for almost 2 years now and we love it. We have only just begun to understand what we can do with Exilis. It is user dependent but I feel that if the provider is focused, it is a short learning curve. I love it for facial tightening especially after the use of Sculptra. My patients are getting wonderful results.

Seems exilis is catching up with the thermage.
Exilis no consumable.
Thermage , expensive tip.
Both are RF, but one is for smart consumer. Another is for sucker.

We often use Exilis after other body contouring procedures that need "tweaking". You can feather and smooth out small areas. The best way to think of Exilis is you can melt fat and tighten skin any place you can move the body applicator across and get the temp to 42 plus degrees. There are no consumables except a 3 dollar grounding pad so I say give it a try. That is what is so great about the device.

If you think about the skin on the abdomen it is all connected to the skin on the hips and flanks. If you contour and tighten circumferentially you get a much better result. Just taking down fullness around the mid section reduces the size but really does not improve the appearance. The reduction occurs over multiple treatments so you can move the device over different areas to contour and shape the whole area so you don't see lumps and bumps with Exilis treatments.

When we first had the machine I was not sure it really worked so I treated only one side of my abdomen. I was amazed you could see the treated side had reduced but there was a smooth transition to the untreated side. I have since treated the other side with no ill effects.

I have done the following areas for fat reduction: abdomen, flanks, thighs, lower legs ("cankles"), arms, breasts (gynecomastia), neck/face. Skin tightening seems to require a little bit different process than fat reduction and the areas I've done include face/neck, arms, upper thighs and buttocks (mostly for cellulite).
Many applications that surprised me with effectiveness are off-label and include lipomas, onychosis and acne.
I am unable to compare directly my results with other devices. Indirectly, however, when comparing my "before and after" with images presented on websites of several other devices, RF and non-RF based such as Thermage, Accent, Liposonix, Zeltiq, VelaShape, TriPollar and others, I am yet to see a single image that surpasses Exilis.
I do have very few "non-responders" but the "failure rate" is below 10%. I am unable to explain why these patients did not respond although some responded very well when treating another areas.
Overall, Exilis seems to be delivering much more than I have expected.

We also use Exilis on large body parts. In fact that is the reason why we bought the machine. We have Skin Tyte and it works well on the face but we didn't see great results on the body. We did up grade to Skin Tyte II and it does a better job on the body but it does not melt fat. Both machines will take 4 treatments to tighten.

10.17 | Unregistered Commenterstatton

we have both coolsculpting and exilis. We have had great results with both machines. Exilis is operator dependent and we have had to develop our own protocols to get the best results.

Can you please post the settings/ parameters you use for exilis on face and body that really work for your practice, thanks!
