As you grow older, your skin slows its production of collagen and elastin — the two main proteins that help it retain its shape and elasticity. Besides giving you a few more fine lines and wrinkles, this normal aging process can also increase your skin’s laxity, making it appear loose and saggy. At Larchmont Dermatology in Larchmont, New York, board-certified dermatologist Cynthia B. Yalowitz, MD, FAAD, offers a complete menu of anti-aging and skin rejuvenation treatments, including BTL Exilis™ noninvasive skin tightening.

In the past, cosmetic surgery was the only way to correct loose, saggy skin and restore a more youthful appearance.
But thanks to ongoing advances in aesthetic medicine, noninvasive skin tightening has become a safe and effective option for people who want to rejuvenate their appearance without going under the knife.
Noninvasive skin tightening uses controlled thermal heat energy to help improve skin laxity.
While the main goal of the treatment is to tighten loose, saggy skin, it can also enhance your skin’s texture, appearance, and overall quality. In some cases, it can even give you a slimmer, more contoured shape in the targeted area.
To address loose skin, Dr. Yalowitz uses BTL Exilis, a fully customizable body shaping and skin tightening system. BTL Exilis combines the patented technology of radiofrequency (RF) energy with ultrasound energy to deliver controlled, uniform heat to the deepest layers of your skin.
As these combined energy waves penetrate your skin through a hand-held device, they cause a thermal reaction in your tissues that stimulates your body’s natural healing response.
During each pulse of energy, you’ll feel a gentle vibration accompanied by alternating heating and cooling sensations.
As your body increases its production of collagen and elastin in the days and weeks following each treatment, you’ll see noticeably tighter, smoother skin.
Part of what makes BTL Exilis skin tightening both safe and effective is its advanced EFC™ (Energy Flow Control) technology, which allows Dr. Yalowitz to monitor and control the amount of energy that’s being delivered to the treatment area for maximal comfort and optimal results.
As a noninvasive cosmetic procedure, BTL Exilis skin tightening doesn’t require incisions or anesthetic. The treatment itself is relaxing and feels similar to having a hot stone massage.
It can be used to correct skin laxity on virtually any area of your body, and is also safe for all skin types.
Because the BTL Exilis skin tightening system stimulates your body’s healing response to improve skin laxity, you’ll attain optimal results after having multiple treatments.
As the collagen and elastin that are regenerated through the healing process build up over the course of a few weeks, tighter, more youthful skin becomes increasingly noticeable.
Although your degree of skin laxity and your own personal goals will help Dr. Yalowitz determine how many treatments you’ll need to achieve desired results, most patients attain the results they’re looking for after undergoing a series of two to four sessions.
Treatments are scheduled a week apart, and typically take about 15-30 minutes each.
BTL Exilis skin tightening doesn’t require any downtime, which means you can resume your normal activities immediately after each session.
