Finally fight stubborn areas of fat with this skin tightening treatment.
Maintaining a balanced diet and exercising regularly are two things that most doctors will tell you to do if you want to lose weight and stay healthy. Of course, we understand that while these measures are certainly important for maintaining a healthy weight, it isn’t always that easy for everyone. If you are dealing with unwanted fat or sagging skin, our Rocky River, OH, anti-aging specialist Dr. Curt Birchall is here to tell you about an FDA-approved, non-surgical way to fight excess body fat.
What is Exilis?
This non-invasive procedure allows patients to get rid of fat and tighten loose areas of skin through radiofrequency waves rather than invasive surgical techniques. Target and eliminate stubborn pockets of fat while also improving the contour and shape of your face or body. Exilis can target everything from love handles and stomach fat to loose neck skin or sagging skin around the eyes.
How does Exilis get rid of unwanted fat and improve your appearance?
The special radiofrequency waves are directed over the area or areas you wish to treat, where they safely penetrate through the outer surface of the skin to heat up the deeper layers of fats underneath. These special waves heat up and destroy fat cells and also help restructure collagen to improve skin’s elasticity and firmness.
Is there a recovery period?
There is no downtime associated with this treatment. Since it is completely non-surgical you won’t have to deal with stitches or incisions that require ample healing time. Our Rocky River, OH, doctor will provide treatment right here in his office and you are free to leave and go back to your daily routine immediately after. We know this can be a major benefit for those who can’t take time off from work but still want to improve their appearance.
How many treatment sessions are necessary?
The number of sessions you require is based on your goals and how much fat you are looking to remove. Most patients will start to notice an improvement within the second or third treatment sessions. The average patient will undergo anywhere from four to six treatment sessions to get the results that they want.

Losing weight can improve your overall health. You don’t have to drop a large amount of weight to see changes in your overall health. Dr. Curt Birchall at Rocky River Med Spa - The Fountain Clinic in Rocky River, OH and serving Cleveland, OH offers Fat Reduction with Exilis Therapy. Here are six surprising health benefits of weight loss.
1. Lower Cholesterol Level
Being overweight raises your LDL level. As LDL ("bad") cholesterol flows through the blood, it can deposit plaque in the arteries– which can lead to stroke or heart attack. Ten pounds of weight loss can lower your cholesterol by more than 10 percent.
2. Reduced Risk for Heart Attacks
Losing weight is one of the key health factors and behaviors that keep your heart healthy. If you're overweight or obese, you don't have to get thin to reduce your risk for a heart attack. Losing just 10 pounds reduces your heart-attack risk by 50 percent.
3. Minimize Allergy Symptoms
Being overweight can worsen allergy symptoms. Added weight can strain your respiratory system and aggravate your allergy symptoms further. Lose the weight and you might actually be able to breathe easier when allergy season hits.
4. Lower Blood Pressure
High blood pressure can cause damage to veins and arteries, which can reduce blood flow throughout the body. This may lead to heart disease, stroke and heart failure. Other parts of the body, including the limbs, kidneys and eyes may also suffer damage. Losing 10 pounds will help to lower your blood pressure.
5. Reduced Risk for Dementia
Nearly half of American adults have too much visceral fat, the belly fat that surrounds the internal organs, visible in their bulging stomachs. The fat around the internal organs contains cells that release inflammation-causing chemicals in your body, which can increase your chances of developing dementia.
6. Reduced Risk for Cancer
Obesity increases cancer risk. The reasons for this are not clear – but fat cells are highly active, releasing large amounts of hormones that can fuel many cancers. Losing weight will lower your risk of nine types of cancers.
