Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) July 19, 2011
Board certified “Top Doc Philadelphia” plastic surgeon Dr. Paul Glat is the first physician in Philadelphia to provide Exilis non-surgical body contouring. “The treatments use a combination of ultrasound & radio waves. It can literally take inches off your waist, abdomen, thighs and other problem areas,” says Dr. Glat.
“Exilis” is a new approach to non-surgical body contouring. It’s an FDA approved device that uses a unique combination of radio frequency energy and ultrasonic energy, available for the first time to the U.S. Treatments can take inches off the waist, abdomen thighs and other body areas, and can reach the stubborn, deeper fat layers which have been difficult to reduce with other non-surgical treatments. Since there is no surgery involved, no recovery time is required.
Exilis treatments also work faster than other non-surgical treatments. Most people will require just 4 treatment sessions to reach their goals, says Dr. Glat. Exilis treatments can achieve the highest levels of fat reduction and body contouring that is possible without liposuction or surgery.
The mechanical effects of ultrasound energy allow treatment of previously resistant tissue. Exilis precisely targets the deeper fat layers, while contact cooling of the surface regulates the temperature of the skin and protects the skin.
Fat cells are stored in the body in “lobules”, or clusters similar to a bunch of grapes. These fat cell lobules are wrapped in a fibrous tissue that holds them together. The tissue makes it virtually impossible to reach the fatty clusters without a liposuction cannula—until now.
As part of the process, mechanical waves help to separate the fat cell clusters into individual units. The exposed cells are then more accessible and responsive to treatment. High frequency energy causes targeted deep thermal heating, the fat cells shrink and the fat volume is reduced.
The desired body areas are targeted for treatment in a procedure that usually take 30 to 45 minutes or less. Best results are achieved after four to five treatments spaced over a period of about six weeks.
