BTL Exilis Elite TM / X-WAVE

Associated terms:
Skin tightening and skin smoothing with focused ultrasound, gentle lifting without surgery, soft lift, ultrasound lift

BTL Exilis Elite TM is a non-invasive treatment system that combines two proven physical elements - ultrasound and radio frequency - with integrated cooling. This combination is compressed into one applicator. A simultaneous application of fat reduction and skin tightening is possible. It is suitable for all body areas. A tightening of the intimate area is possible with a special probe.
A new, gentle and effective technique against the unloved orange skin (cellulite) is possible in combination with the X-WAVE acoustic wave therapy (shockwave therapy). The device enjoys world-wide popularity and is very well documented by international studies. Therefore we are pleased to offer you this system in our practice.

The effectiveness of the treatment:

The combination of the mechanical effect of the ultrasound waves and the high frequency energy allows penetration into previously resistant tissue. It specifically acts on deeper fat layers. The contact cooling of the skin surface regulates the skin temperature and thereby protects the fine skin structures. Cell metabolism is activated and lipolysis (fat breakdown) accelerates localised. The volume of the foetal cells is reduced and with it the fat layer. At the same time BTL Exilis Elite TM provides skin tightening as well as improvements in cellulite, skin structure and skin elasticity.

The advantages of the treatment:

  • Non-invasive treatment, no surgery required
  • Treatment without any downtime
  • The skin surface is not injured - no scars
  • Fat reduction and/ or tightening of the sagging skin is usually visible after a few days
  • Final effects can be seen after approx. 3 months
  • Painless treatment
  • The treatment can be done all year around as the skin is not excessively sensitive to sunlight

The procedure of the treatment:

According to a special scheme the treatment piece is guided over the skin. Ultrasonic gel or oil is used to couple the energy. The treatment is accompanied by a pleasant feeling of warmth. It is completely painless and without anaesthesia. Because of the integrated cooling the application is barely noticeable despite the high penetration depth. The treatment piece provides the practitioner with information about the respective skin temperature to prevent overheating. Furthermore the set energy level is visible which gives information about the treatment strength as well as the depth of the treatment. The skin remains uninjured during the procedure.
An average treatment takes about 15- 60 minutes depending on the body area. The duration depends on whether a single fat reduction or a single skin tightening is performed or whether a combination of both methods is done. Generally 4-6 sessions are required every 7-14 days. Depending on report, body type and desired goal further treatments may be required. For the cellulite treatment 2-4 combination sessions with the BTL Exilis Elite TM and the X-Waves are recommended. Followed by another 6-8 sessions with the X-Wave (shock therapy). Depending on the form changes or extensions of the treatment plan may be possible as well.
You can see an improvement of the skin texture/ elasticity after the first treatment already. From the second treatment on an increasing improvement of the body contours or cellulite occurs. This increases more and more with further treatments. The final results can be seen after about 3 months. This treatment is not used with pregnant or breastfeeding patients, in fever and inflammation as well as with patients with heart pacemakers or metal implants.
BTL Exilis Elite™
You can directly return to your daily routine after the treatment BTL Exilis Elite TM (and the X-WAVE). Depending on the sensitivity slight reddening may occur in the treatment areas after the treatment. These can last for a few hours. Normal body care (hair/face wash) is immediately possible. In order to be able to quickly and successfully discharge the dissolved fat from the organism you should be ingesting 3,5 l / day on the day of the treatment as well as a few days afterwards.
A light athletic activity, lymphatic drainage and acoustic wave therapy with X-WAVE support the success of the treatment. A low fat diet can support as well because the fat elimination mechanisms are loaded with he dissolved fat and "small sins" can be processed badly and prevent the success of the treatment.
BTL Exilis Elite™ Skin tightening and fat reduction without surgery. We now have the latest technology from the US in our practice. Depending on the setting of the treatment depth you can achieve a collagen thinning or a fatty tissue breakdown by disintegration of the fetal cells through radiofrequency. This allows a firming of the skin in the face and neck but also on the body. With the same device but a second handpiece fat cells can be melted away. By heating the tissue to about 43 degrees Celsius the cell covers of fatal cells disintegrate. The "waste product" is broken down via the lymphatic path. The tightening effect of the skin is based on the so- called "collagen rubbing". As a result of the action of heat the acollagen fibres coalesce, the skin becomes firmer and small wrinkles are smoothed.
In general 4 treatments are recommended in a distance of 1-3 weeks. A nice instant effect can be seen. The final result is visible 3 months after the treatment. Reddening may occur immediately after the treatment but otherwise you are sociable directly after the treatment.
Innovative procedure for the treatment of cellulite

Cellulite treatment

Cellulite affects 85% of women over 30 years. The so-called "orange skin" is created by the pressure exerted by the deposits of fat on the skin combined with blood circulation problems. The skin shows bumps and a corrugated structure. In addition, local water accumulations and sagging can occur. The reasons for this can be versatile: hormonal, genetic but also lifestyle- orientated.
