Body Fat Treatments in Louisville, Lexington, Kentucky
The Exilis body shaping treatment is for the patient with skin laxity, cellulite appearance, or small, stubborn fat deposits of the body or face who opts for a totally non-invasive solution. Areas such as the neck, chin or jawline as well as the abdomen, hips, bra strap area, knees, and thighs can be reduced in size and have the overlying skin tightened and smoothed.
Exilis is a state-of-the-art, powerful RF (radiofrequency) device that provides thermal energy to break down fat deposits to tighten and smooth skin. This device uses monopolar radio waves that selectively heat the target area to the desired temperature which can be monitored in real time through the hand-piece. The treatments are comfortable and feel like a hot stone massage. Each treatment session can last from 30 to 90 minutes, depending on how many areas are treated, how large each is, and how much correction is desired. A series of 4-6 treatments spaced a week to 10 days apart make for the best results, although some result is seen in just one treatment. Patients are encouraged to be well hydrated before, during, and for a few days after treatment, and some form of mild exercise post-treatment will aid in fat removal. Patients with pacemakers, or who pregnant or lactating, are not candidates for Exilis.
There is absolutely no downtime associated with Exilis. Normal activities can be resumed immediately. Makeup can be applied directly after the treatment. There can be mild redness to the skin for a few hours after the treatment. On occasion, some tenderness of the treated area may be present for a day.
Another option would be the Exilis Elite, which uses 90 watts of power versus 50 watts of classic Exilis, and is used mainly for skin tightening. We have one of five machines in the country! The Exilis Elite differs from the Exilis by being a skin-tight treatment only but providing a higher power to increase tightening results.
Minimally-invasive, in-office LiteShape™ and standard plastic surgery procedures like tummy tuck, facelift, Brachioplasty (arm lift) and liposuction are still the gold standards in body contouring and skin tightening enhancements.

Exilis Ultra 360
Exilis Ultra 360 is a powerful skin-tightening and body-shaping treatment which combines radiofrequency and ultrasound to tighten skin and permanently reduce stubborn fat. This treatment is extremely versatile and can treat more than 20 different areas of the body, including the mouth, chin, arms, back, abdomen, buttocks, knees, and more.
Patients of all body and skin types are good candidates for Exilis Ultra 360. A consultation with Dr. Salzman can help to best determine if this treatment option is right for you.
No anesthesia is needed during the Exilis Ultra 360 procedures. This treatment simultaneously uses high-frequency ultrasound energies and mono-polar wavelengths of radio frequencies to safely shape and tighten almost any area of the body. These wavelengths heat targeted areas to improve the appearance of wrinkled, sagging skin or areas with excess fat deposits.
Treatments are comfortable, providing a warm sensation to the treatment area. Each treatment session can last anywhere from 20-30 minutes, depending on the number and size of the treatment areas. Most patients require 4-6 treatments spaced a week apart to see optimal results.
While some results may be visible after the first treatment session, improvements will continue to occur over time. There is no downtime associated with this procedure, so patients can return to their daily activities afterward.
