Exilis is a treatment used to provide skin tightening and, in some cases, fat reduction/body contouring . Patient comfort during the treatment, as well overall satisfaction with results, is largely operator dependent. A doctor's familiarity with the device and aesthetic sensibility impact final results.
Most patient reviews seem to reflect favorable experiences of patients who are pleased with the results of the treatment. Reviews that are negative cite either error from the person delivering the treatment (a novice nurse for example) or dissatisfaction with how long the results last compared to how much was spent for the treatment. Be sure to voice any concerns during consultation with your provider so that you are clear about short term and long term expectations.
