Skin Tightening

Technological advances have made nonsurgical skin tightening techniques some of the most popular cosmetic procedures in recent years, helping patients restore firm, youthful contours in areas where their skin has sagged with age or they’ve struggled with excess fat. At Cosmedica, Dr. Otto Weiglein and our staff have performed clinical evaluations of numerous non-invasive skin tightening treatments to offer our patients from Burlington, Hamilton, Oakville, and elsewhere the procedure that gets the most effective, lasting results. The Exilis Elite™ treatment performed the best, and we’re excited to offer this breakthrough technology at our clinic.

Dr. Weiglein wants to help your confidence shine through. Request a consultation or call Cosmedica at  (905) 631-6288 to discover the possibilities.

What Is the Exilis Elite?

The Exilis Elite is cleared by Health Canada and the FDA in the U.S. and uses controlled radiofrequency (RF) energy to target deep layers of the skin with precision. A treatment heats underlying tissue to stimulate and strengthen collagen growth, while the temperature at the surface is regulated to ensure patients remain comfortable during treatments. The Exilis Elite also reduces isolated areas of fat. The result is tighter, suppler skin and a contoured profile.

The system can be used to tighten skin on the following areas:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Arms
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs

The treatments can be combined with other nonsurgical anti-aging procedures, such as injections of BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers. Many patients, particularly those with less extensive signs of aging, find the treatments a suitable alternative to a facelift. Dr. Weiglein can evaluate your skin and recommend the best procedure for you.

What to Expect

Exilis Elite treatments don’t require downtime. Moderate redness and minor swelling last briefly, and you can get back to your daily routine almost immediately. The Exilis Elite is not a laser skin tightening treatment. Patients at our Burlington clinic don’t endure skin peeling, pigment changes, or prolonged healing after an Exilis Elite session. Treatments are generally comfortable. A sensation of heat indicates the treatment is achieving its goal.

When Will I See Results?

The energy heating the deeper layers of skin immediately triggers collagen remodeling, so you may see some results instantly after your treatment. The most significant improvements occur gradually and usually arise about 3 months after your final treatment. If you’re getting Exilis Elite treatments for your face and neck, we recommend undergoing 2 to 4 treatments scheduled 10 days to 2 weeks apart. Body contouring usually takes about 6 sessions spaced apart by 1 or 2 weeks. Dr. Weiglein and his nurses will do an assessment and customize a treatment plan for you based on your needs and budget.

Combining Skin Tightening With Sculptra® Aesthetic

Sculptra is a unique filler that not only replaces volume lost in the cheeks and other areas but also enhances skin tightening treatments. Sculptra contains poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA), a biocompatible synthetic substance that stimulates the production of collagen for several months after injection. Rather than target specific wrinkles, Sculptra injections address a larger surface area than with other dermal fillers and are delivered deeper in the skin. Our blog includes a post that helps explain more about what makes Sculptra different from other fillers.

Preparing for Treatments

There is little special preparation needed before a treatment session. If your goal is body contouring, it’s important to drink plenty of water before and after the treatment to remain properly hydrated. That helps limit swelling. Some light physical activity is also beneficial after the treatment. Men undergoing facial treatments should shave before an appointment. There is no need to alter the regimen of medications, supplements, or vitamins you may be taking. It’s not necessary to limit sun exposure during your treatment period, but it’s a good idea to wear sunscreen because UV light damages collagen.
