How Does Radiofrequency Energy Tighten Skin?

July 14th, 2014

Radiofrequency (RF) is a form of electrical energy that has been used in a variety of nonsurgical medical treatments for decades. RF energy can penetrate the body and be absorbed by specific areas, providing focused heat only in the targeted tissue with only a mild heating of the skin and no damage to surrounding tissues. The radio frequencies cause water molecules in the deeper layers of skin to vibrate, and the friction this creates causes the heating effect. RF is so precise that it has replaced the laser for many common medical procedures, such as vision correction, liver cancer, varicose veins and back pain.

RF skin tightening treatments are designed to promote collagen contraction and growth to make skin more elastic and firm, reducing wrinkles and sagging. RF heat is precisely targeted to deep layers of skin for several minutes, which triggers collagen fibers to contract. Collagen contraction causes the skin to tighten during treatment, and over a period of several treatments offers optimal skin tightening and wrinkle reduction.

Exilis Elite combines the advantages of RF energy with a cooling system, which keeps the skin cooler and allows RF energy to go deeper while achieving greater precision in tissue heating. Not only can Exilis Elite help stimulate collagen production and tighten skin, it can also be used to reduce fat, resulting in more youthful, smoother skin. Because RF energy does not affect the skin or the melanin, Exilis Elite can be used with skin of all colors.

Don’t let bruises and insect bites cover your beautiful summer skin

July 7th, 2014

There it is – a vivid red, yellow and purple bruise for everyone to see! Or maybe you became a feast for mosquitos on your summer camping trip and your arms and legs are covered with itchy, red welts. Luckily there is a natural way to get rid of bruises and insect bites quickly with arnica gel or lotion. Arnica, a member of the sunflower family, has been used for centuries to reduce swelling, pain, inflammation and bruising when applied to the affected area. The plant is toxic when taken internally, but safe in homeopathic commercial preparations when used topically. As with any plant, some people may be allergic to arnica and should discontinue use if symptoms worsen.

Just can’t exercise away those chubby knees?

June 16th, 2014

Will you be hiding your knees in crops and maxi dresses all summer because you’re too embarrassed to wear short skirts and shorts? Are you tired of endless knee-slimming exercises with no results?

The truth is: no matter how much you work out, you can’t spot reduce specific areas of the body by exercising. You can tone and build muscle, which makes your knees look more fit, and you can diet to lose excess weight, but the fat will still be there. So you’ve lost weight and built muscle, but you’re still dealing with flabby knees. It’s so frustrating!

Now there is a solution that works! You can get rid of excess fat and tone the skin around the knee in just a few weeks … without surgery!
Exilis Elite eliminates fat cells with the use of radiofrequency (RF) waves that actually kill the cells. Fat cells don’t just get smaller, they’re totally eliminated from your body. So the number of fat cells in your knees is greatly reduced – up to 60% are gone.

And the added benefit of Exilis Elite is toning. As the cells are being killed, the skin is being tightened, getting rid of the excess wrinkles to make your knees look trim and tone.

You CAN have the slim knees you’ve dreamed of! Shorten your hemlines and bare your legs this summer. Ask your doctor about Exilis Elite.

Slim and sexy arms for summertime

June 9th, 2014

Is wearing sleeveless tops only happening in your dreams? Flabby arms can take all the fun out of summer wardrobes.

Sagging skin under the arms can happen at any age. Women who have lost a lot of weight will often be left with loose, wrinkled skin under the arms. Even women who are otherwise fit may find that diet and exercise isn’t enough to tighten flabby skin under the arms, and working out without proper diet and sufficient water can make matters worse.

Over time, the effects of aging, gravity and years of tanning can cause skin to lose elasticity and firmness. These “bingo wings” won’t go away no matter how much you exercise.

Now it’s possible to safely melt fat and contour upper arms at the same time! In just 3 to 4 treatments with the Exilis Elite, you can lose a half-inch to an inch or more in each arm. The hand-held device emits radiofrequency waves that warm the skin as your arm is massaged with the device. The temperature can be reduced for more heat-sensitive areas, making the FDA-approved device a safe, long-lasting solution to a frustrating problem.

Exilis Elite can make your dreams come true — those sizzling summer tops will look amazing with your sleek and shapely arms!
