The Derm Institute offers non-invasive skin procedures clinically proven to tighten and contour the skin by stimulating the production of collagen.

We use proven state-of-the-art technology including the Exilis Ultra, the first device that combines radiofrequency and ultrasound energy to tighten sagging skin on the face and body without discomfort. Lax, crepy skin head to toe can be treated utilizing this device.

Popular areas of treatment include:

  • Upper and lower eyelids
  • Jawline and lower face
  • Neck
  • Inner upper arms
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Knees

Radiofrequency energy with ultrasound penetrates into the skin, causing contraction, tightening and stimulation of new collagen over time. The result is tighter, firmer, younger appearing skin. Exilis Ultra works to better define facial and jawline features, as well as smoothing and sculpting of unsightly bulges and wrinkles on the body. This treatment is safe in all skin types, even darker skin, and has no downtime.

Common Questions:

What is the downtime? Is there discomfort?

There is no downtime for these procedures. The areas feel mildly warm for a short time after treatment, but patients resume regular activities immediately. During the treatment, patients liken the feeling to a hot stone massage and are not uncomfortable.

How many treatments do I need?

Experience has shown optimal results require 4-6 sessions spaced about 2 weeks apart. Collagen will build over this time, and full results are seen within 6-8 weeks after your last session.

Does Exilis Ultra hurt?

We believe strongly in patient comfort. Unlike some products on the market, the state-of-the-art devices employed by The Derm Institute do not require anesthesia or pain medication. The procedures are sometimes described as feeling like a warm massage.

Can this be combined with other cosmetic procedures?

Dr. Chiu often combines Exilis Ultra treatments with other cosmetic procedures such as wrinkle relaxing agents like Botox or Dysport, or dermal fillers such as Juvederm or Sculptra. Dr. Chiu is a nationally recognized expert in combination treatments for both the face and body. We will tailor and customize the best treatment plan for you, based on your skin type, age, and your cosmetic goals.
