The Exilis laser treatment system is used for skin tightening, body countouring and fat reduction. This treatment is safe and produces results in just two-to-six sessions, on average.
The idea behind the Exilis technology revolves around using radiofrequency to stimulate collagen production. This can give different outcomes based on the level of treatment performed.
For example, Exilis skin tightening works by stimulating collagen production within the skin. The level of radio frequencies targets collagen fibers, causing fibroblasts to start producing. This will have a skin tightening effect in the long term, by building up the fiber network in the skin.
Exilis can also be used to help with fat reduction. By delivering the radiofrequency deeper into the tissue layers, the Exilis technology can “melt away” the fat. The actual process works by using energy to destroy the fat cells, which are then broken down and removed from the treatment area by the body’s natural processes. After this procedure you must drink a large amount of water to help with the elimination.
Exilis skin tightening and fat removal is not believed to have significant side effects. Most people will say it is mildly uncomfortable relate to the heat the device produces but not significant pain. Immediately after the procedure, you may notice a warm feeling in the skin and mild redness which will dissipate quickly after your treatment.

NaturaLight Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) System
The NaturaLight IPL system is used for skin rejuvenation, vascular treatments, hair removal and acne treatment. The most popular reason for this treatment is to get rid of brown spots related to sun damage, and skin tightening on lighter skin types; providing consistent results during a fast, comfortable treatment.
IPL systems work by using a broad light source that target particular cells with color (chromophores) in the skin. The light energy is converted to heat energy, which causes ‘damage’ to the specific target area. This ‘damage’ is a good thing, we are trying to destroy those targets whether it is a vessel, a hair follicle or a sun spot.
IPL therapy is considered a non-ablative resurfacing technique, which means that it targets the lower layers of skin (dermis) without affecting the top layers of skin (epidermis). The advantage of IPL therapy is its minimal downtime – a patient can often have the procedure done in their lunch break and return to work immediately afterwards. If you have sun spots, there will be a few days to a week of “coffee ground” appearance to the skin where the lesions are breaking up but no burn appearance or dramatic social downtime.
Our IPL system also has a hand piece that is filtered to assist with the treatment of acne. The broad band of light generated at specific wavelengths destroys the P.acne bacterium and inhibits growth. This treatment is performed one to two times a week for approximately four to six weeks. There is little to no downtime with this treatment and can be of great benefit to the an ongoing acne regimen. It is expected to see a decrease in the amount of active acne pustules and papules in the skin and a decrease of the redness associated with the color changes acne brings to the skin. This treatment is better for lighter skin types.
