New York City, NY (PRWEB) March 27, 2011
A busy cosmetic medicine practice with offices in New York City and Norwalk, Connecticut, Profiles & Contours, New York Plastic Surgery, PC (http://www.profilesandcontours.com) is now offering Exilis for completely non-surgical body contouring and skin tightening. The practice adds this procedure to its extensive lineup of plastic surgery procedures for NYC and Connecticut residents.
Exilis, which uses advanced radiofrequency technology to target fatty deposits and loose skin, is an exciting new option for people who have tried to change their body through diet and exercise but have been unsuccessful. Already known as specialists in breast augmentation and rhinoplasty in New York City, the doctors at Profiles & Contours look forward to treating more patients who want to slim and tighten areas of their body and face without surgery.
"It used to be that surgery was the only way to reduce unwanted fat on the body," explains Dr. Mark A. Erlich, founder and director of the practice. "But Exilis allows us to change the body's shape without any of the pain and weeks of downtime associated with liposuction. After an Exilis treatment, our patients can immediately return to their normal activities."
Exilis works by heating the underlying tissue and increasing the metabolic activity of fat cells. Fat cells – which are normally metabolically inactive – then begin to shrink. A series of Exilis treatments, usually spaced about 1 to 2 weeks apart, is generally recommended. Patients often see their best results after 4 treatments.
In addition to decreasing fat cell volume, Exilis also contracts the underlying tissue for dramatic improvement in the tone and texture of the patient's skin. Exilis can also increase the production of collagen and may even improve the appearance of cellulite.
"Pretty much everyone has a stubborn fat deposit or trouble spot they'd like to get rid of," says Dr. Erlich. "Exilis is exciting both because it can improve the body contour and give the skin a more youthful and taut appearance. We can use Exilis on any part of the body with lax skin, and it is particularly popular for below the chin and jaw line in addition to areas of the body. We get beautiful results, and our patients are really happy with how they look."
