Get the skinny on Exilis (pronounced "x-cil-us") to shrink stubborn fat areas and tighten and tone saggy spots. Now available at Gerrish & Associates.
Dr. Gerrish now performs Exilis Therapy, the latest advancement in nonsurgical, pain free therapy for the reduction of targeted fatty deposits, skin tightening, and sundamaged and/or wrinkled skin anywhere on the face and body for male and female patients.
The search for a shapelier silhouette continues to drive patients to seek aesthetic therapies, but not everyone is willing to go under the knife to lose inches. Dr. Gerrish is thrilled to be the first in Northern Virginia to offer Exilis Therapy, the newest non-surgical method [tranlastion: not liposuction] for body-shaping and circumferential reduction of targeted fatty deposits on the body.
Exilis is the newest FDA approved technological marvel that offers the capability of dual function radiofrequency energy (radiowaves) in the same handpiece for the first time to the United States. What makes this form of radiowave energy so powerful? Well, it used to be that the only way to reduce fat volume from the body (aside from diet and exercise) was liposuction, which requires an incision (scar) and downtime from regular daily activities. There are several machines on the market that use radiowaves alone, or combined with other forms of energy that can tighten the skin, or treat cellulite, but none can promise actual circumferential reduction until now. Here's why: Fat cells are actually stored in the body in lobules that are clustered like a bunch of grapes. These clusters are wrapped in a fibrous tissue layer like a hairnet that holds them together. This fibrous tissue layer makes it virtually impossible to reach the fatty clusters without a liposuction cannula—until now.
The Exilis uses radiofrequency energy to volumetrically heat the deeper tissues and to ramp up the metabolic activity of the fat cells, causing them to shrink. The patient satisfaction rate is high, with circumferential reductions ranging from 4 cm to 15 cm of volume loss after 4 treatment sessions spaced at 2 week intervals. All of this occurs in a safe, painless, and quick 20 minute office procedure with no downtime or limitations on your activities!

During your procedure the Exilis computer-controlled delivery device is guided over the treatment area. You will feel a deep heating sensation as the Exilis RF energy is delivered to the deeper layers of the skin. The therapy causes the collagen support tissues to remodel and tighten. The underside of the applicator provides cooling to your skin's surface, and the built-in thermometer lets the operator maintain constant temperatures keeping you more comfortable during the treatment.
Exilis therapy is performed in our office. The procedure takes from 15-30 minutes depending upon the size of the area.
Our patients love it because skin-tightening and body shaping with Exilis means:
