Your skin is made up of collagen and elastin to maintain its firmness and elasticity. Over time, these structures break down resulting to wrinkles and sagging skin. This is also another reason why your skin takes a while to adapt to the changes in your body.
And sometimes, if the skin expands too much due to pregnancy or weight gain, it doesn’t snap back to how it was before even after you gave birth or lose weight leaving you with saggy skin which doesn’t look flattering.
Although diet and exercise are a great way to tone your muscles, it may not be enough to tighten loose skin. Fortunately, removing sagging skin without surgery is now possible with Exilis Ultra 360, the first and only skin tightening device to simultaneously combine radiofrequency (RF) and ultrasound to treat loose skin safely.
How to Tighten Loose Skin with Exilis Ultra 360?
The Exilis Ultra 360 is one of the latest technological advances introduced by BTL Aesthetics. In addition to radiofrequency, the device has the added advantage of diffuse (spread-out) ultrasound energy.
The addition of the diffuse ultrasound energy allows the device to heat the tissue faster, easier and more effectively. Hence, it is able to provide the needed optimal therapeutic temperature in order to stimulate collagen and elastin making it an effective skin tightening treatments resulting in a smoother and firmer skin.
The device is also built-in with two applicators – big and small. The bigger applicator can be used to tighten the saggy skin not just on the belly but also on the back, male breast, arms, thighs and other areas. While the smaller applicator can be used to treat smaller areas like the face. Besides from skin tightening, the bigger applicator also provide additional fat reduction and cellulite reduction benefits.
