When you’re looking for more youthful looking skin, the non-surgical options are now plentiful. While our mothers and grandmothers had to rely on skin tightening surgeries like facelifts and body lifts, we have many non-surgical alternatives to look younger. In addition to injectables like Botox and dermal fillers, non-surgical skin tightening technologies have emerged over the years. In this article, we compare two such technologies available here in our Beverly Hills medical spa. Learn about Exilis vs Ulthera for non-surgical skin tightening.
To determine while skin tightening technology is right for you, one of our providers will give you a full consultation. We will determine if Exilis, Ultherapy, or another skin tightening or facial rejuvenation procedure is best for you. Both treatments yield amazing results for our patients.
Ultherapy can be great for skin tightening and fine lines and wrinkles. This treatment tightens the skin around the face, chin and neck to yield a more youthful appearance. It does not usually have any painful effects, and it normally only causes a slight bit of discomfort to clients. Ultherapy is our “one and done” technology, meaning patients typically only require one treatment to see long-lasting results. Annual maintenance is always recommended to keep up with the investment.
Exilis is an FDA-approved treatment for wrinkles and rhytids. Like Ultherapy, Exilis uses ultrasound. However, unlike Ultherapy, Exilis also uses radiofrequency energy. This combination provides unique results for patients. It is capable of reaching fat in areas that are very deep. The risks for this treatment are low, and it may only cause redness for about 15 to 30 minutes.
Since it's FDA-approved and scientifically backed by studies, it can be used on any part of the face or body. The treatment itself has been compared to a painless hot stone massage. The recovery time after an Exilis treatment is very brief.
Exilis vs Ulthera can be a difficult choice, depending on the treatment area, skin tone and texture, and other considerations. If your provider leaves the choice in your hands and doesn’t have a strong recommendation either way, you may want to choose one treatment over the other based on cost or the number of treatments required to see results. Exilis requires multiple treatments and costs less while Ultherapy is usually just one treatment and costs a bit more.
If you’re looking for tightening of the face, neck, or decolletage, then either treatment can work for you. However, if you’re looking for any non-surgical tightening below the chest area, Exilis is generally preferred. If you’re also looking for fat reduction, Exilis is the clear choice.
