Are you dealing with stubborn areas of fat on your body? Fat on the upper arms, stomach and thighs can be resistant to even the most rigorous exercise routine and strict diet. For patients with this frustrating problem, the Fountain Clinic, a med spa located in Cleveland, Ohio, often recommends Exilis, a non-invasive, comfortable and effective way to reduce fat and contour these areas of the body. Dr. Curt Birchall and his staff at The Fountain Clinic in Cleveland have answered a few of the questions they often hear about this amazing fat reduction treatment.
What parts of the body does Exilis treat?
At the Fountain Clinic, your Cleveland med spa, Exilis is used to contour the upper arms, the neck, stomach, thighs, upper back and "love handles" above the waist. For male patients, it can also be used for fat reduction in the pectoral area.
How does Exilis work?
Exilis is powered by a steady pulse of radio frequency, which produces heat energy. By heating the targeted fatty areas directly below the skin (the subcutaneous layer), the fat is broken down and eventually dissolves and is absorbed by the body.
Is Exilis painful?
Part of the appeal of Exilis is that is non-invasive, meaning that there are no surgical techniques used in its application. Unlike liposuction, it requires no anesthesia and there is no downtime afterwards. Most patients at The Fountain Clinic compare the feeling to a warm massage, although mild discomfort is possible when treating highly sensitive areas of the body. The staff at your Cleveland med spa suggests drinking lots of water prior to your fat reduction treatment to prevent dehydration afterwards.
How many Exilis treatments are needed?
Typically, our Cleveland patients who use Exilis for fat reduction see a noticeable difference after two to three sessions at The Fountain Clinic. These sessions take less than an hour and can be scheduled a week or two apart. Four sessions usually produces the most satisfying results.
