Exilis Skin Tightening

As we age, the collagen and elastin in our skin decreases. This causes skin sagging and loss of skin elasticity. Radio Frequency (RF) skin tightening has been an excellent treatment for these common skin aging problems.

Dr. Chernoff selects systems that provide safe and effective results for our patients. The Radio Frequency system we use at our Santa Rosa office is called IntraGen™.

IntraGen is a new non-invasive, monopolar radio frequency contouring device that safely and gently rejuvenates and tightens skin. IntraGen works by targeting collagen contraction and stimulating new collagen formation by applying Grid Fractional Radio Frequency energy. Dr. Greg Chernoff advise that IntraGen treatment is safe for all skin types.

IntraGen is one of several treatment options at our office to help increase collagen, strengthen elastin fibers, and tighten skin. Additionally, we offer several other treatment options that range from non-invasive to minimally invasive including Microneedle RF, DOT Fractionated CO2 Laser, FaceTite, and BodyTite.

During your consultation, we will evaluate your skin, listen to your goals, explain all options, and recommend a treatment plan.

Prior to any treatment or procedure, Dr. Chernoff or one of our trained and certified Health Care Providers determine if you are a candidate, review the risk and benefits, and provide all possible treatment alternatives.

What Areas Can Be Treated With Skin Tightening RF?

Our office uses Skin Tightening RF with IntraGen to improve skin elasticity anywhere on the face and body. We have found that smaller areas respond better to treatment because we can concentrate the energy in a specific area. For example, we have noticed improvement when we treat the face, under the chin, and hands.

Our patients have also experienced improvement in targeted areas of their abdomen, thighs, and knees. We may suggest combining Skin Tightening RF with other treatments such as Fractionated CO2 or Microneedle RF to provide additional improvement in skin tightening.

What Results Can I Expect From Skin Tightening RF?

After treatment, skin should be smoother, tighter and more elastic. Treatments can result in an improvement of wrinkles and fine facial lines. An improvement of sagging areas such as the chin and along the jawline can be achieved with IntraGen.*

How Many Treatments Are Needed?

A series of 3-6 treatment sessions spaced 1-2 weeks apart is recommended.* The number of treatment sessions will vary according to your age and the condition of your skin.

What is the Recovery Time?

Most patients are able to return to their routine activities directly following treatment.*

How Long Will Skin Tightening RF Results Last?

The skin improving benefits can be discussed during your consultation. We encourage our patients to continually care for their skin. We find that when regular and optimal skin treatments are performed with Facials, Peels, and Laser therapy, our patients skin ages much more slowly than they have experienced in the past.*

How Does Intergen Compare to Other RF Treatments?

IntraGen is among the newest technologies that exist for RF skin tightening. The grid technology allows precise control and even disbursement of energy. This allows the IntraGen to be more effective than other RF technologies.

How Much Improvement Can I Expect From Skin Tightening RF?

The best way we can give you an idea of the improvement you can expect is to see you in-person for a consultation. When we meet with you, we will give you feedback on what you can expect from the procedure. We will also discuss all options that exist to accomplish your skin improvement goals.

How Does Exilis RF Therapy Work?

Exilis RF uses thermal energy that works in two ways:

  1. To speed up the metabolic activity of fat cells and to stimulate the production
  2. To strengthen the collagen network

The result is the shrinking of targeted fat cells and improved skin texture. Patients see shrinkage of excess skin, improved elasticity, and overall improved skin quality. Exilis skin tightening works on all skin types and is an effective treatment for men and women

Patients remain very comfortable and relaxed as the system heats the tissues of the targeted area. The procedure causes little or no pain. Patients typically lie down on a treatment bed during the procedure. Treatment positions will also be determined to best target the intended area.

The device is guided over the treatment area and the RF energy is delivered to the deeper skin layers. Patients typically feel a heating sensation.
